Perfect 365

If you know me, you know I am a member of a variety of forums on Facebook. One of the forums I'm on had a thread posted the other day about a mother that had created a GoFundMe account for her six-month-old baby's pageant expenses, and photoshopped a photo of her baby for the cover photo of the GoFundMe. Being myself, I ignored the inherent creepiness of the whole situation, and immediately downloaded the app she used to photoshop the photo - Perfect 365.

Since I'm currently injured (I have a pulled muscle in my rib cage), I spent a whole evening playing with Perfect 365. This app is hysterical! I took some terrible no-makeup-stuck-on-the-couch photos of myself and plugged them into the app, and edited them to look like I was wearing a full face of makeup. *Insert laugh-cry emoji here* The results were highly amusing, to say the least:

Before
After
Obviously, the app has an issue with detecting hair that is hanging over your eye, as you can see from the weird ghost-eye-through-the-hair effect we're getting in that "after" shot. The other issue I really noticed when I was editing this photo is that it's super-hard to get your lips to not be a ridiculous Barbie color of some kind - it doesn't exactly lend itself to natural lip colors. Ha!

Before: scary
After: still scary, but now for a different reason
My reaction:


The app decided to also give me a face lift, and make me look unrealistically plastic, and…..Asian. Huh-larious. I laughed my ass off about that "after" shot. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this app should not be used for super-close-ups going from no-makeup-sick-face to full-makeup-glam-face. It just looks absurdly fake and hilarious. The one thing this one did show me, though, is that you can get the app to give you less Barbie-orange-pink lips.

I also discovered, after some playing, that the app does have its uses. It is for that reason that I actually chose not to delete it.

Before: I am at a hot, outdoor wedding, but I do have makeup on.
After: more lipstick and more eye makeup, and airbrushed skin
Cute, but the app definitely leans toward giving you a ridiculously overdone face off makeup. It allows you to customize each part of your face, though, so you can get it to tone it down. I had to really crank on it to draw it back even to what  you see here, which I still feel is a bit more makeup than I would normally wear. Basically, this app is useful if 1) you already have makeup on, and 2) you take a photo that isn't a super-close-up, but also isn't super far away, and 3) you don't have any hair falling over your face. It basically needs to be square-on, and you need to get yourself halfway there for the app to give you a realistic touch-up. 

Basically, proceed with caution. It does have its uses, but you can really tell when someone has used it if they attempt to go from hot-mess-express to glam-fabulous with just an app. It's fun to play with, either way. ;)

  1. That app is certainly... interesting. I can't imagine what that baby must have looked like when she photoshopped with this app. I actually think you look prettier with minimal makeup! I wish I could pull that off!

    1. Haha thank you! Yeah I really prefer myself with less makeup than the app allows for, it really wants to make you look like you're going clubbing! Haha!

    1. Oh my yes. It was super awkward. It's so fun to play with when you have down time (haha) but the photoshopping of the baby was ca ray zay.

    1. It can get really ridiculous. I was using the default "Goblin" and it was craycray. I found some more natural ones though that aren't nearly as ridiculous. Haha!

  4. I've totally seen bloggers who use this app! I'm impressed with how natural you got it to look in some of the photos!

    1. I made the mistake of selecting "Goblin" as the default "filter"...big mistake. There are more natural filters you can use that I found later! Some of them are just ridiculous!

  5. Your response though! "Dis Tew Much" lol, but the ghost eye is terrifying. I can't believe people are using this app, like whaaaat!?

  6. I never heard of this app but it sounds really interesting. I want to download it just so I can play around with it. Btw how much money had the mother raised so far?

    1. $0. People went crazy because it was such a ridiculous GoFundMe (for example, she asked "how can I tell my daughter she can't achieve her dreams because we don't have the money?" Um, she's six months old.) Lol! The app is ridiculous and fun to play with though!

    1. Bahaha yeah it kind of is! There are some less intense edits but the crazy ones are definitely the most amusing!
