Virtual makeup product fittings with ModiFace

L'Oréal and Facebook announce a technology integration that allows shoppers on Instagram to virtually try on makeup products using ModiFace, L'Oréal's augmented reality and artificial intelligence company.

With this latest step in their collaboration, ModiFace and AR Spark, Facebook's augmented reality platform, bring shoppers the experience of a highly realistic virtual fitting. By browsing a brand's Instagram page, consumers will be able to try on a product before buying.
