ModiFace has teamed with Latin America cosmetics brand Cyzone for the launch of Cy MakeApp. The app enables users to try on Cyzone’s entire product collection on their own live video on any iOS or Android device. The new applications feature ModiFace’s facial-tracking and makeup-rendering technology, enabling photorealistic try-on of products on a user’s live video.
One of the unique aspects of the app is that it contains curated looks that are popular in Latin America, which can be tried on in live 3-D,” said Parham Aarabi, chief executive officer of ModiFace.
Belcorp-owned Cyzone is known for its on-trend fashion, accessory and beauty products sold primarily via consultants through its catalog and on its web site.
“The Cyzone app is a unique experience, customized in every way to reflect the unique nature and brand of Cyzone,” said Sandra de Rivero, corporate brand design manager, Cyzone.
With Cyzone’s youthful following, ModiFace vice president of partnerships Jennifer Tidy added, “It is not a surprise that they would be the first Latin American brand to focus on Live 3-D Augmented Reality.”
