Beauty and the Tech

Beauty and tech haven’t traditionally gone hand-in-hand, to say the least. All that could be changing however, with the first ever Beauty Tech Summit recently held at the Consumer Electronics Show. Here are five of the coolest new gadgets to help you look your best:

Kiss and makeup

Makeup App ModiFaceSometimes, it’s hard to know whether you’re going to pull off that new hair color or new lipstick shade. Enter the ModiFace app, which uses facial recognition to allow you to test out a range of makeup and skincare looks on your own face. It’s currently available for free on both Android and iOS.

Nail it!

Imagine being able to customize your own nail decals, with absolutely any image you choose.  With the Inail nail printer, you can. Whether its home or salon use, this could be the greatest thing to happen to nail art since Pinterest.

Smooth as silk

Permanent hair removal has revolutionized the salon industry in recent decades, although the cost means that it’s still out of reach for many consumers. Coming in at just $295, the Iluminage Precise Touch lets you do hair removal home, without the cost or the inconvenience of having to head into the beauticians. It’s great for small areas (like bikini lines, upper lips and underarms) and, unlike other products on the market, is safe and effective for all skin tones and colors.

The Eyes Have It

Possibly the most futuristic beauty device in a while, the Iris Illuminating Eye Massager by FOREO, uses sonic technology to rejuvenate your skin, reducing marks of stress and tiredness. It’s a small price to pay at $139 and is small enough to carry with you.

White and Bright

While there are a huge number of tooth whiteners on the market, the GLO Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening Device is one of the best. Using Guided Light Optics, the mouthpiece speeds up whitening by using heat and light. Invest for $220 and smile wide!
