Why Virtual Makeup Try On Is So Essential

Virtual makeup try on is a crucial tool to enhance the shopping experience for both beauty brands and retailers. It allows consumers to test out products before they buy — something that’s even more crucial during a time when in-person sales have plummeted.

Perfect Corp. Contact Us

Research shows that the main reason customers are afraid to buy makeup products online is that they can’t see the various shades will look like in person1. This makes it hard to tell which specific product would look best on them. Photographs only go so far in accurately showcasing colors and hues.

But with a virtual makeup try on experience, consumers can try on these shades from the comfort of their own homes. Makeup try on mimics an in-person try-on experience as much as possible by allowing users to virtually wear different shades. In the U.S., 22.2% of women1 have tried out a virtual tool like this when shopping.

When this technology is implemented, buyers will have less remorse. They’ll be more certain that the products they’re buying will work for them. Furthermore, brands can have higher conversion rates paired with fewer order returns.

How to Offer Virtual Makeup Try On?

Virtual makeup try on support is essential for businesses that require specialized products. This requires advanced AI technology for accurately analyzing facial features and precise makeup application that follows the movement of a consumer's head.

In addition, virtual makeup providers must also have strong AR technology to render makeup effects and colors realistically. This requires a deep understanding of lighting and shading to ensure that the virtual makeup looks as natural as possible. If your brand requires custom makeup capabilities, such as the ability to create bespoke shades or formulations, it's important to work with a provider who can tailor their services to meet your unique needs. This can help you create a truly personalized virtual makeup experience for your customers.

The Essentials of Setting Up Virtual Makeup Try On

When it comes to setting up an augmented reality-powered virtual makeup try on for a website, there are a few steps one should take to optimize the experience with both new and recurring consumers in mind. Utilizing the following tips will ensure consumers have the best possible experience.

Step 1. Ensure Accurate Color Matching & Color SKUs For Virtual Makeup Try On

Perfect Corp. Contact Us

After consumers purchase the product, the product should be what they expected. Brands never want them to have a bad shopping experience. This means that color matches and color SKUs need to be as realistic as possible. The experience should be just like — or even better than — shopping in person.

Step 2. Make Virtual Makeup Try On Easily Accessible

Many consumers are interested in virtual makeup try on, which means they need an easy way to access it. If they have to stumble through the site to find the try-on page, they may get discouraged and head to a brand that makes the process easier.

Perfect Corp. Contact Us

This means the site should make the journey to the virtual makeup try on as easy and seamless as possible. Brands also need to have a clear way of promoting the tool. This might mean having a homepage banner that announces it, running an ad campaign on social media to get more views, or even having a makeup try on button directly on each product page.

Step 3. Customize the Virtual Makeup Try On Module To Fit Your Brand Aesthetic

Virtual makeup try on is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Brands need to make sure their makeup try on module matches their existing aesthetic and color palette. That way, it will look like a seamless integration into the brand website rather than a clunky add-on.

Perfect Corp. Contact Us

Not every brand is big and bold when it comes to colors, which is why tweaking the module is so important. This lets stores go as big or small as they want, depending on what’s important to the brand and customer.

Step 4. Maximize SKU Assortment For Virtual Makeup Try on

Virtual try-on should be available for every possible product the brand has available, such as lipstick, foundation, hair color, and more. Otherwise, they risk losing out on important sales.

That said, it may not be possible to release all SKUs at once in virtual makeup try on. Companies need to prioritize which SKUs they think will perform best and focus on them first. This might involve taking a look at what’s trending in the market to see which makeup products have risen in popularity. Giving these SKUs priority can help curate a successful customer base that will be on board when they can digitize the rest of their product catalog.
