Thanks to Augmented Reality (AR), looking good on social media has never been easier. There are tons of beauty filters that allow us to look like we’re wearing makeup. Some AR filters even go as far as to altering the shape of our faces, which has become quite the controversial topic because of its effect on people's self-esteem.
But what if, rather than using face-altering beauty filters, we could use filters teaching us how to put on makeup instead? Imagine filters that teach us to accentuate our natural God-given features instead of morphing them into fitting certain beauty standards. And that’s exactly what Grace Choi, owner of 3D makeup printing company Mink Beauty, did.

But no need to worry, because with Grace’s Contour, Eyeliner, and Eyebrow filters, learning how to do makeup has not only become easier, it’s become more personalized and immersive too.
