Try before You Buy with These Best Makeover Apps ...

There are few things in this world more tragic than the regret of a haircut, hair color, or pricey new lippie that just isn't right for you. I mean, sure, there are worse things, but it takes a long time for bangs to grow out, or for too-brassy highlights to tone down. Avoid the misery (and a month of hats) by trying a new style with a makeover app... or, just have fun with one of these apps! Tempted to try matching blue eye shadow and turquoise highlights? Try it in-app first... or find a fedora you love, just in case.
