Hot New Beauty Apps You'll Love

As someone who is constantly on the go, I rely on my smartphone for all of my day-to-day tasks and needs.

Whether it’s for finding new recipes or planning a vacation, I’ve come to realize there is an app for everything. (Seriously, there are over 1.5 million apps in the Apple App Store.) Nowadays, I feel like I stare at my phone more than I look at myself in the mirror. So why not utilize the time spent on my phone to up my beauty game? Here are three beauty apps that will help bring out the best in you:


Whether you need a last-minute manicure or want to get your hair styled for an event, Priv has you covered.

It is considered a one-stop destination for beauty and wellness services. You can order any service from hair and makeup to personal training and have an experienced professional come directly to where you are at any time. There are services for men, too. The catch?  Priv is only available right now in Los Angeles, New York City, Austin and London.


This app was created for the times you saw the perfect shade of lipstick but weren’t sure where to find it or how it would look on you.

Shadescout lets you spotlight any color from an image and matches it with similar shades from real brands. See how it looks on you by taking a selfie and virtually applying the lipstick. If you like the way you look in a certain shade, Shadescout’s built-in purchase option allows you to buy the product on the spot.


Bellashoot is where beauty enthusiasts go to discover thousands of beauty tips, makeup tutorials, hairstyles, and nail designs.

The Bellashoot app creates an online community by allowing users to interact with one another, upload their own videos and share product reviews around the world. It’s a community of knowledgeable and influential beauty buffs who speak in a language you’ll understand and share their favorite solutions and products. Bellashoot could be your new BFF.

Whether you’re on the go or busy with the kids, you can utilize the time spent on your phone with apps that can benefit you personally. If you need a last-minute blowout or you’re deciding how to do your makeup for date night, these three apps will enable you to look and feel your best.
