According to the survey of over 350 makeup artists, 81% of makeup artists would like to be able to offer their clients a preview of what a makeup look would look like on their face before applying it. These stats on digital beauty and several others were released today in the form of an infographic.

According to celebrity makeup artist, Kabuki, “digital makeup offers the opportunity to create a look for a client and get an idea of what it will look like before applying it to the face. Technology is opening up new avenues in makeup and endless possibilities to expose people to something new.”

The nature of makeup makes it impossible to try on without applying products to the face, making product returns a natural consequence. In fact, 42% of counter makeup artists report product returns as being the most frequent issue encountered. This has been an ongoing issue that the beauty industry has continued to grapple with. Advancements in face detection technology and the rapid development of digital beauty is evolving the beauty industry, making virtual try-on a viable solution.

“Digital beauty has become an integral part of our curriculum at Chic Studios. This generation of makeup artist students are extremely tech savvy and are looking for ways to promote themselves online and seeking out information on how to create an online presence.” Said Amy Nicole, Owner/Director of Chic Studios.
