Before you pack your bags, set your work email to the ‘out of office’ auto-reply, find a sitter for your cat and take off, check out these five beauty apps that will help you survive the holidays…and your in-laws!
Cast Beauty is not your typical beauty app. It is an innovative mobile platform that provides personalized skin and hair products based on your unique profile and the weather. Wait, what?
YES, this beauty app provides a personalized hair (and skin) weather forecast right at your fingertips AND as an added bonus, the app not only recommends personalized skin and hair products but you can purchase these items all from your phone (how cool is that)?
Sorry Chief Meteorologist Paul Deanno, I think I’m going with Cast Beauty for my weather (and hair) updates!
The Glam App

OMG! So you feel in LOVE with your hair and makeup that was done, courtesy of the beauty experts over at The Glam App and now you need to know what products were used. Almost impossible to find…until now! Let’s start with your makeup.
ShadeScout, which is a cosmetics color search app, allows users to instantly find makeup matching any color they see. So now, you can re-create that same look, anytime you please. If you are a novice, you may need to watch a few ‘Makeup for Beginners’ YouTube videos but hey, at least you have the right products handy!
Now let’s talk hair! If you’re anything like me, trying to achieve the ‘salon-look’ at home always seems to be impossible. Am I trying the right techniques, do I need to add more mousse, should I just cut it all off… Ughhh, I need help!
But maybe, just maybe, did you ever stop to think that it may be that you’re using the wrong hair products? Hmmm, maybe! Well now there is a way to provide product recommendations based on scientific hair strand analysis (We see you getting excited….so are we)!
The Myavana hair journey mobile app is an app that provides product recommendations, based on your hair strand analysis. It also provides a special place to share your hair journey and connect with other women through your hair care experiences.
The best part about this recommendation system is that it is for women of ALL hair types and textures, yes, ALL!
Having the customized makeup and hair care regimen is great but it is important to check the ingredients before applying anything to your face and/or hair. The easiest way to learn about potentially toxic ingredients in your cosmetics and personal care products is through the Think Dirty App.
Think Dirty empowers and educates the consumer on the cosmetics industry by allowing them to make an informed decision on what products to purchase and the potentially toxic ingredients within these products.
Research shows, some ingredients, which are absorbed through the skin, enter the bloodstream potentially causing cancer or other health problems (A wake up call for us too). We highly recommend using this app!
Looks like we checked off everything on our to-do list. I think we are all set for the holidays!
Wait, we almost forgot one thing. As a bonus, if you are in need of some fresh (and fun) entertainment or just need a quick break from your in-laws, download the Tampon Run App, developed by two New York City-based 17-year-olds, Andrea (Andy) Gonzales and Sophie Houser! We thoroughly enjoyed throwing tampons at the enemy!
