Review, ModiFace iPhone App – “Who Put a Clown in my iPhone?”
by Erin Waugh
10 Dec 2009
I tried. Honestly. I tried to modify my face with the ModiFace iPhone app. It’s supposed to allow me to apply pretend makeupto my pretend face, but what I got was the Clown of Christmas Future.
To start, I needed to take a photo of my naked morning face. This is never easy, nor, frankly, very wise before strong coffee. You have to guess where you are in front of the lens. I love my iPhone, but why can’t they affix a mirror to the back of it so you can see what you’re snapping? I took 17 shots of my nose hair.
Finally. Got a photo of my VERY CLOSE FACE. Ugh. The app demands that my mouth be closed in the photo, so it‘sa mug shot, as if my naked face hadbeen arrested for indecent exposure. Let’s fix that! Eye liner first. Select color – “dark plum.” Hit go. While it’s thinking and trying to find my eyes, the read-out says: “Makeup Brain is applying makeup.” There. Done. Whoa... There’s a thick smudgy line of dark plum UNDER my eyes. Under?! Women haven’t done that since Brooke Shields came out of her Calvins. I look like a Goth experiment in the nursing home. I look like Alice Cooper.
Let’s try something more subtle and less apt to terrify children. Let’s add foundation.Hit “go.“Ooh. It appears as if someone applied a “blur” filter to my face, which, honestly, is not such a bad thing.Let’s do eyelashes, my favorite part of makeup. It gives me an array of colors to choose from, all of which are black.So, how aboutblack.“Makeup Brain is applying makeup” and… NOOO!! Tammy Faye Bakker get back!Undo!! Where’s the exorcism button?!
This strange little app may not be ideal for us “vintage” women. I play with it for a few minutes just to rock out myinner clown. Green eye shadow, red lips, maroon cheeks. Maybe this ModiFace app does havesome use, because now I know what I will look like when I’m calling BINGO! in the Home for Aging Circus Performers.Perhaps I just have “Makeup Brain,” but seriously, for 99 cents, buy a mirror, glue it to the back of your iPhone, and trim your nose hair.
