A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
What's it about?
Teens take a new picture using the front or back camera on their devices or pull an image from their existing photos to edit and make over. Then, they adjust key points on the face to line up everything and can try out different styles of all-over makeup or edit the image and try different makeup options. Image-editing capabilities include changing the eye color, slimming the face, removing blemishes and under-eye circles, whitening the teeth, and more. Teens can save their image to the camera roll, send it to be printed, or share it via social media.
Is it any good?
Putting aside the deeper issues of teens using a photo-makeover app with the word perfect in its name, PERFECT365 ONE-TAP MAKEOVER is impressive both as a makeover and a photo-editing tool. Just as photographers tweak images by whitening the teeth and the whites of the eyes and removing blemishes and dark circles, teens can "perfect" their photos with a tap. They then can play with a variety of makeup and hair styles, virtually trying out what they may or may not want to do in real life.
The makeup tools are really varied in colors and options, but the hair is pretty limited. The auto-detection tool that lines features up works nearly perfectly on its own but can be adjusted if necessary. Teens also can easily share their "perfect" pictures (they can change their noses, raise their cheekbones, and change their eye colors, quite possibly creating an image very different from reality) via social media and create polls that solicit feedback from friends, so parents may want to talk to kids about deeper issues if teens do play around with Perfect365 One-Tap Makeover.
