For the past 6+ months I’ve been working on a new iPhone app. Now I can finally talk about it. 🙂
It’s an app for Urban Decay Cosmetics (a division of L’Oreal), to help introduce and promote their new Vice Lipstick line.
(iPhone only, needs iOS 9 or above, and looks best on larger phones like the iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus, or 6s Plus; tho it functions on any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch that runs iOS 9).
What’s really cool about the app is the virtual “try on” feature, where there’s a live camera that superimposes the lip shades on your lips so you can see what they might look like on you! That particular bit of technology comes from Modiface, who themselves have some apps in the App Store and do some pretty neat facial recognition and morphing stuff. Check them out.
I mention this not only because I’m proud of the work (and learned a lot about the cosmetics industry, which I have a newfound respect for), but I’m hoping to get back to writing more now that I’ve been able to come up for air. You may have noticed (or maybe you haven’t) that my writing has been light the past some months — it’s because of the intensity of this app project. But it’s done, and so I hope to get back to writing more regularly.
