Panasonic Pioneers World’s Most High-Tech MakeUp

Jul 5, 2019 | Japan, News, Style, Tech

Panasonic has developed a futuristic way to apply makeup through a smart mirror that detects a person’s skin issues which can be concealed through a make-up sheet

Soon, you might be able to apply your makeup like a stick-on tattoo. Panasonic recently developed a mirror that could do serious flaw analyzing.

The wonder product does not stop there. It also prints out makeup sheets that can cover all your wrinkles, freckles, blemishes, and dark spots.

As a person looks at their reflection on the device, the smart mirror will start analyzing the face and begin to highlight areas that need coverage. This is done through an image synthesis function.

All your problem areas will be tallied by a software which gives you a report on your skin condition. The mirror will then give you a thin custom sheet of foundation and concealer that will perfectly match your skin tone.

After the sheet is printed out, peel it and place it over your face. Then, apply a small amount of water, and smooth it on, just like how you would do on a temporary tattoo. Then, all your imperfections will be hidden in plain sight. This will make your dream to have flawless skin a reality.

This will not only save you time while getting ready, it will also solve all your woes about finding the correct foundation shade.  You can finally look your best even without applying thick layers of makeup which can aggravate the skin even more.

The revolutionary product will also allow you to achieve stylish makeup styles and can cover all your makeup needs. Don’t worry, the gadget is designed to achieve high-quality realistic makeup so you won’t end up looking like a clown.

However, you might need to wait for some time because the Snow Beauty Mirror & Make-up Sheet is still a prototype. Soon, the smart mirror makeup will shake Asia news as it hits market shelves, although there is still no set date for the launch as it still needs to undergo more testing.
