How to Even Skin Tone For Your Selfies With a Tap

Mar 25, 2021 · 3 minutes read

While we all dream about perfectly clear, smooth skin, the reality is that real life is full of pimples, redness, and uneven skin tone. But thanks to advanced photo editing tools and effects, evening skin tone, blurring blemishes, and calming redness in your photos is as easy as a tap. 

How to Even Skin Tone in Selfies

One of the biggest problems with selfie-editing to even skin tone is that the effects are not natural looking. More often than not, the effect is a full face filter that creates an all-over blurring effect which makes your entire face look fake, blurry, and edited.

Then there are the manual retouch tools that do allow you to customize and edit specific areas, which give the user more control over the adjustments. However, these tools typically make it more difficult to address larger areas of redness and also pose a challenge for skin-tone matching, which can make your photo edits look fake and disjointed.

The solution is found in apps like YouCam Makeup, which use advanced face detection to identify and address specific areas of skin concern including spots, redness, dark circles, and unevenness. This leading AI-powered app delivers the most advanced beauty tech solution for impressively accurate photo editing effects that mimic true-to-life results, and help you perfect your selfies in seconds.

YouCam Makeup app uses AI/AR technology to auto-detect common skin problems and fixes them in selfies precisely. 

The difference lies in the fast and incredibly accurate AI face-mapping that is combined with the powerful AI algorithms that spot scan over 70,000 professionally graded images to help identify your skin concerns in seconds. The advanced technology is verified by dermatologists and skincare experts to ensure its accuracy and the most natural skin tone editing effects possible. This type of validation is why over 900 million users turn to YouCam for their selfie editing tools and effects.

Below are some top selfie edit features to even skin tone for your selfies.

#1 Remove Spots

YouCam Makeup’s exclusive “Blemish” tool uses an advanced AI algorithm to accurately detect spots on the skin’s surface, as well as determining the density and intensity of the spots.

Maintaining healthy, beautiful skin is a continuous journey and one that requires consistent pampering and hydration. While even the most diligent among us can master a ten-step skincare ritual most of the time, the reality is, sometimes our skin goes a little crazy, and pesky blemishes, unevenness, and redness pop up leaving us feeling frustrated and discouraged.

While following a healthy diet and daily skincare routine (with cleansing and moisturizing) is always best practice when striving for beautiful, even complexion, simple and effective tools like YouCam Makeup’s retouch features can make even skin tone just a tap away.
