Abstract

In this paper, we present a system that aids people in wearing makeup easily and make the process enjoyable. We call the proposed system the “Smart Makeup Mirror”, which is an electronic dressing table that facilitates the process of makeup application. In this system, we place a high-resolution camera above a computer display and have added some functions such as “Automatic zoom to a specific part of the face”, “Display the face from various angles”, “Simulation of lighting conditions”, and “Internet voting on better makeup results” to facilitate the makeup application process. People who use this device for applying makeup will obtain highly satisfactory results, while enjoying the process.
