Sephora, the leading beauty specialty retailer, and ModiFace, the leading global augmented reality virtual makeover technology provider, today
announced the launch of a 3D Augmented Reality Mirror that can simulate
cosmetics on a user's face in real-time and in 3D. The new patented
technology, created by ModiFace, tracks the precise location of a user's facial features and applies eye shadow colors directly on the video
feed from a camera. Sephora customers can:
Try any number of cosmetic colors - instantaneously and virtually - simply by tapping a shade palette on the Beauty Mirror screen
Preview unique textures of eye shadow including glittery, sparkly, and shiny shadow textures
View all eye shadows from different angles as they turn their face from side to side, enabling customers to virtually try out products quickly in a
store and to make better informed purchasing decisions
Originally launched in March 2014, the Sephora 3D Augmented Reality
the world's first photo-realistic 3D mirror, and is the result of over
3 years of research and development.
“We believe ModiFace's 3D Augmented Reality Mirror will be a breakthrough technology for our customers as they virtually try out different
eye shadow shades quickly and easily,” said Antonio Ferreira de Almeida, General manager, Sephora Italy.
