Before I liked having my phone in case of emergencies, but now I need my phone. It has my photos and is my link to the outside world. What did I do before I had to check my Instagram feed every 20 minutes or pull up the website for the restaurant we want to go to and make reservations from my phone? I know if I have kids, they will scoff at me when I tell them that I didn't have a cell phone until high school. How did we ever find anyone at an event? It still boggles my mind.
To start out this new feature, I thought I'd share an app I just learned about from the beautiful Ashley from Le Stylo Rouge. When she told me about it, I was intrigued, but when I saw it in action, I had to have it. I've never been big on selfies, but that's mostly because I never liked the way I looked in them. It seemed like every blemish was on display and those cute smile lines were front and center. Enter YouCam Perfect. It says it takes the perfect selfie, and I believe it. At least it's so much better than just my old iPhone camera. Check out the evidence below.
App Name: YouCam Perfect
Description: Take the perfect selfie
Available: Android and iPhone
Review: I'll let you be the judge.
The quality isn't the best, and I think the app just smudges everything out so that you appear to have luminous skin, but for an Instagram picture, this is a great option. These pictures have been blown up for the blog, but in normal phone size, they look a lot better.
You get to pick which filter you like. I think I used "Fresh" in the pictures on the right. I'm excited to experiment more with this app and see what else it can do.
Have you tried YouCam Perfect before? What are some of your favorite cell phone apps? Share below so I can try them out:)
Stay tuned next week for my preferred alternative to Instagram for dreamy photos.
