Say you’ve got this picture with a great aesthetic. There are some beautiful landscapes in the background, and your outfit is so good it needs to be forever enshrined on the internet with an OOTD post. Your hair is the moment. The trouble is, the light wasn’t great when you took it, and your front-facing camera is kinda crappy. 

To yeet or not to yeet? That is the question. Here at Facetune, we say you don’t have to throw out a picture that needs some tweaking. With our new mix & match digital makeup feature, you can go back in and retouch selfies without mess or stress. Add lipstick to photos or add freckles for a fun look. Add makeup to photos and your friends will think you went all out that day. 

Digital makeup - what is it?

Once only available for Facetune’s video editor, digital makeup can now be accessed (for free!) on the photo editor as well. Previously, photo app users could play with a feature called “Paint” to touch up and add makeup to photos. Now, with a mere tap, you can apply a full face of digital makeup with even more ease and variety. 

Touch up your selfie makeup in one tap

You’ll access your digital makeup just like you would the other photo app options. Simply tap the “Makeup” icon and select what you’d like to work with first. Included are Contour, Blush, Lipstick, and Eyes. Here are a few things to know:

With just one tap you can have a glow-up, with less effort than ever before. In the past, and with some of the other apps, makeup tools required you to struggle with application and layering to your look just right. Now, there’s no more zooming in and out, just add contour, blush, eyeshadow, lipstick, and freckles in an instant. With digital makeup the hard part is done in one, single tap. All you need to do is choose the shades for your look, and the tool will automatically populate the color you choose to the right spot on your face. Then, you set the intensity with our easy toggle slider. 

Fix mistakes with undo arrows if you mess up and need to change photo makeup, never fear, a few extra undo taps make the process foolproof. Plus, it's a fast, easy way to try a bunch of great colors. Who knows, you may even discover a new shade to pick up on your next Sephora trip. 

Remember, less is more. Keep it natural. The reality is we haven't uploaded our souls to the metaverse yet, so we still have to adapt our human form to digital beauty. A natural take will make it easiest to achieve a real-life makeup look. You could also confidently go all-out costume makeup with this tool. If you have the foresight, apply a bit of makeup before you take the picture to aid in the final transformation, or use our Paint tool for a more precise application.

How are Facetune’s digital makeup tools different from other makeup apps? 

Sure there are a lot of competitors in the photo editing game, but here are some reasons we think the others simply can’t compete for overall best app to add makeup. Variety, cost, and a streamlined design are some features Facetune has in its corner. 

More than makeup filters

Many photo editors are mere makeup filter apps. This means they will give you little control over placement and customization. With a generic filter, you can’t mix & match, but Facetune’s digital makeup tool gives you the ability to do just this. Not only can you choose the shades, and intensity, but you get to decide how you want to pair them together. No two pictures will be the same and you can showcase your unique look with many makeup styles. 


Realistic color options

Facetune’s digital makeup tool has more variety of colors and shades than many of the other apps out there. Choose from hues that are on trend and comparable to real makeup - you may never want to put the real stuff on again. Just kidding, you have to go outside once in a while, but for those times you’re in a hurry, lack the motivation, or just want to play, this is a perfect alternative. 

No extra cost 

A downfall for some other apps is the makeup options simply aren’t free! Many require a subscription but with Facetune you can now get advanced digital beauty even on a budget. Plus, when you’re ready to upgrade, Facetune’s more advanced features will be literally at your fingertips. 

Easy user experience

Facetune has been in the game for a while so our app is streamlined and super user-friendly. Some of the smaller guys lack an intuitive design. You’ll end up bombarded by ads and a little confused. With Facetune you’ll be more likely to skip tech frustration and get right to the fun parts. It’s a straightforward design that is super easy to navigate.

Powerful makeup tools to retouch selfies

Many have come to associate Facetune with celebrities and influencers, which is a testament to how well it works. There’s a reason professionals like Khloe Kardashian use Facetune more than any other - it’s the best makeup app out there. Not only that, but it’s celeb-level beauty we normies can access. 

Long-time users love Facetune for its time-tested tools and glitch-free design that makes everything easier. Makeup that could take hours IRL, can now be done in no time at all. You can achieve realistic thirst trap looks without the fuss of putting on and removing makeup. Or you can test out the hottest new trends again and again. When you add makeup to photos and screw up, it no longer means scrubbing your face and starting all over again. Now you can apply and edit digital makeup while eating hot Cheetos and watching The White Lotus in bed. It’s profesh level makeup that’s completely user-friendly. Instagram, here we come.
