YouCam MakeUp and YouCam Perfect add Halloween themed effects to create scary self-portraits
Best Halloween selfies to win iPhone 6 and other prizes
London, 31 October 2014 - YouCam MakeUp, a beauty app for selfies that has been downloaded more than one million times, has launched a Halloween themed feature to help users create spooky looks and festive makeovers for the Halloween season.
The app turns people's self-portraits into "scary" selfies and allows users to experiment with a variety of frightening appearances. The app uses facial detection technology to create virtual representations of what people would look like as evil characters such as zombies or mythical Goths.
Users can apply a range of make-up tools to transform their head shots into anything from a sleek and sophisticated vamp style to a Poison Ivy look reminiscent of an innocent looking but creepy villain. The app also features quick editing functions for creating gory background effects in the form of Halloween frames and collages.
Among the app's most popular Halloween looks is Maleficent, the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil" featuring the bewitching, sharp look with chiselled cheeks and red lips. The femme fatale look inspired by Cleopatra, the infamous Queen of the Nile, is also tipped for a top Halloween makeover as well as the Vampire treatment with its timeless gothic glamour that is both classically scary and sultry.
The app's users can also take part in a competition to find the most creative Halloween selfies. To be in with a chance of winning an iPhone 6 and other prizes, users are encouraged to post their Halloween shots on the app's competition page on Facebook or Instagram with a hashtag #Halloween. For complete rules and details, visit the contest's Facebook page.
YouCam Makeup is available for free on the App Store and Google Play. The Halloween themed feature is also available on YouCam Perfect, a sister app designed for taking perfect selfies. YouCam Perfect is also free on both the App Store and Google Play.
