The suite of beauty apps [1] developed by Perfect Corporation has been downloaded more than 400 million times globally. Perfect Corp.’s YouCam App platform is powered by an augmented reality facial detection technology. In the flagship app YouCam Makeup alone, users try on over 730 million virtual makeup looks each month.

Augmented reality technology is the bridge between selfie makeovers and real life, allowing users to discover beauty, try, learn, share and buy, all within the YouCam Apps beauty platform,” explains Perfect Corp.

Actually, the augmented reality technology has become a part of the modern woman’s daily beauty routine, in particular of Milennials.

Every month, our users try and share countless millions of looks, discover new brands, and engage with the largest beauty community,” highlights Alice H. Chang, CEO of Perfect Corp.

Perfect Corp. attributes this rapid success to leveraging user feedback to drive innovative product development. Constant incorporation of new features based on user feedback allows rapid enhancement of the apps, as well as virtual access to the top beauty brand products with true-to-life colour match and realistic textures. The final goal being, of course, that women buy online or offline.
