A few months ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a Shiseido event to learn all about their latest products and launches. One of the absolute highlights of the evening was getting a chance to test out the amazing Shiseido Magic Mirror, which let's you try on makeup looks and see the results istantly with just a tap of a button. All you have to do is look into the digital mirror for a few seconds while it maps your facial features. You can then choose different colours and products from the Shiseido range to try and the mirror automatically applies these to your reflection. While many programs are able to do this on a static image, the Shiseido mirror is the first of its kind in that it actually applies the makeup on your live reflection! Wink, pout and smile all you like, the makeup stays perfectly placed. Plus you can adjust the colours, placement and intensity to personalise your look. It's never been so simple to experiment with makeup!
The Magic Mirror is such a fascinating, innovative piece of technology and if you have the chance I highly recommend popping down and testing it out for yourself!! Since there is only one in Europe, we are very lucky to have it touring the UK at present. Currently it is housed in John Lewis on Oxford Street, but it will soon be making its way to Sheffield.
Have you had a chance to try out the Shiseido Magic Mirror? If you have do let me know what you think of it! I would absolutely love one in my bedroom - it would make tutorials so much easier as I'd be able to experiment without the fuss of removing makeup. Though with perfect makeup applied in seconds on my reflection (knowing me in my excitement) I would probably forget to actually apply any at all ;).
