Your computer can do your taxes, your appointment scheduling, and your grocery shopping, and now it can do your makeup as well. On display at CeBIT is a new technology that uses a computer's Webcam to snap a 3-D image of your face, measuring shadows, lines, and complexion to automatically design a professional, custom-tailored makeup regimen.
The software has in its database 60 per-programmed models that have been made over by professional makeup artists. These model faces have been imaged in various lighting situations before and after makeup and are used as a baseline against which to measure a user's face. But the software goes deeper, taking into account the nuances of a particular face, like freckles or moles. It will even evaluate a user's existing makeup and determine whether a certain makeup combination suits a given face.
The system can even offer advice. Need something subdued and sober for that job interview? Or perhaps something a bit more sultry for an evening on the town? The software can be modified to provide situational cosmetics advice. More on how the system works below.
A very good academic work towards building computer aided tools to the make up world.
Few additional considerations worth mentioning:
1. This work covers a small part of the makeup morphology world, it looks like the work is focused on the eyes structure and eyes bones. A more complete morphology covers more parts of the face structure.
2. Morphology is only a very small part of the make up work that enhancing and camouflaging in order to "change" structural face imperfections.
3. Makeup style selection has many more aspects to it some are artistic aspects, some are personalization aspects.
4. Makeup look selection should also match few other parameters that are not directly face structure related: The event you are going to, the outfit colors, the message you want to convey (dramatic, sexy, natural...), a night or day event, your eyes and hair colors.
