Launched in cooperation with Perfect Corp, new software enables digital makeup experimentation using realistic facial-recognition technology. Sign up through the YouCam Makeup app for a limited time free download.
Taipei, Taiwan — August 9, 2016 —CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the global consumer multimedia software leader, and Perfect Corp, maker of the world’s #1 beauty app YouCam Makeup and creator of a complete interactive beauty journey, today jointly unveiled a brand new software product aimed at augmenting the workflow of makeup artists through the application of flawlessly realistic digital makeup.
With hyper-accurate face detection able to capture more than 100 facial feature points and pixel-perfect facial mapping, MakeupDirector is able to precisely apply an extensive selection of virtual makeup to faces in photos, in addition to offering advanced retouching, face slimming, sculpting and contouring.
MakeupDirector is integrated with Perfect Corps.’ Beauty Circle—an interactive community of beauty lovers and enthusiasts—enabling users to browse and download entire makeup looks, as well as share their own designs to inspire others.
As part of the launch celebrations, users who sign up to Perfect Corps.' beauty community through either YouCam Makeup or Beauty Circle can download MakeupDirector for free.
“The key to effective digital makeup is realism—it has to look 100 percent natural,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “MakeupDirector's unique technology and world-class design team developed a digital makeup toolkit enabling virtual application that is indistinguishable from the real thing."
“A key advantage of MakeupDirector is the ability for artists to not only browse and download thousands of complete makeup designs from Beauty Circle, but also to upload their own look designs to inspire others,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of Perfect Corp. “As an expression of our excitement and enthusiasm for this product, we are pleased to offer it for free to YouCam Makeup and Beauty Circle members for a limited time.”
Designed for makeup artists, MakeupDirector offers an opportunity for professionals in the makeup space to improve how they consult with clients through digital applications. Rather than suggesting makeup styles by presenting clients with images drawn from magazines or online, artists are able to apply a series of looks directly to a client's photo to see what pairs with their individual facial characteristics, or in particular lighting conditions for studio shoots.
A version of MakeupDirector supporting OS X will be available for Mac users in September 2016.
MakeupDirector Deluxe: US$49.95
