Have you ever tried out a mirroring app? I’ve been in a crunch a few times where I desperately wished I had a mirror. One time, I had left my makeup compact at home, and I was trying to put on mascara without a mirror. It was nearly impossible. It crossed my mind that there might be apps that featured a mirror. Come to find out, there are! I came across SmartMirror in the app store and downloaded it immediately!
SmartMirror features a mirror that follows your lips and eyes with a zoomed view. It works very well. Near the bottom of the screen there are tabs labeled with images of a face (for manual zoom views), lips, left eye and right eye. Lets say you were like me, trying to put on mascara. Depending on which eye you’re working on, you would tap on that tab and immediately be taken to a zoomed mirroring image of that eye! SmartMirror uses the slogan, “never worry about your makeup – no matter where you are”, and it’s really true! SmartMirror also features a florescent light you can use when it’s dark. This feature doesn’t come free with the app, but can be purchased as an in-app purchase for $0.99, which isn’t bad if you end up loving the app! Next time you’re in a pinch, download SmartMirror and transform your iPhone into a mirror!
