= Make glamorous photos with smoother skin
= Dreamy & heavenly softener/toon effects
If you've ever wondered why the models in magazines always have such perfect skin, here's your answer: Face Makeover is remarkably effective at transforming your photos into something that could quite easily go into a copy of Vogue. Now you can do it easily on your iPhone!
Face Makeover includes softener effects that glamor photographers use to smooth skin imperfections. Adding softener effects to a photo gives it a soft, dreamy haze that leaves skin looking as good as a magazine cover model. It's perfect for close-up photos and portraits - any photo where you want to see the face, but not the blemishes.
Also included is a special toon filter that renders your pictures cartoonish/poster-like. The effect is also softened to make pictures artistically dreamy and heavenly. The user interface is very easy and intuitive. Hassle free – just push one button, and Face Makeover will do all the hard work for you! It’s that simple!
Select from your photo albums or simply use the iPhone camera to take a picture of your friends, family, pets, or landscape. Don’t have a picture just yet? Don’t worry. Use the demo pictures provided. Get started immediately!
There are three color modes to choose from: Color, sepia, and black-and-white. You can even control how much detail (line features) you want for your subject with the push of a button.
All makeup photos can be saved or emailed. Send them to your friends and family to let them know what a talented artist you are!

Nice Effcts but Saves at Low-Res
8/11/15 Update: well today's update "What's New" says increase in output resolution. Seriously? On my iPadAir, my hi-res image was saved at...wait for it... 768x548 for a whopping 0.4mp. Really?
Original review: I like the effects this app produces, unfortuntely like all of the other apps by his developer (at least the four that I have purchased) they all share the same problem, the final rendered image is low-res, only about 1-2 mp. This one saves at 1024x681, not high enough to get a decent print. A real disappointment when you start with a 12mp image.
All of these apps need to be upgraded with higher resolution saves, and they would be terrific apps for budding artists.
