We’re always on the hunt for something that blows our brain (good and bad… last week a 'tongue cleanser' landed on our desk – don’t ask). And it seems 2016 has already got going with apps (hand up who spent an afternoon on the App Store over Chistmas, like us?). Get downloading. Here's a few we found earlier...


Simple - the best ones always are. No longer are we looking at an eighth of our face at a time in the eye-shadow compact mirror we carry around in our make-up bag. This app transforms the front of your phone into a reflective screen, with much more clarity than your forward facing camera.

Madeleine Shaw’s Glow Guides

Before you gulp (twice) at the price, note this is actually like paying for a bells and whistles trainer for eight weeks. Each week you get your work-out outline, cardio videos, yoga videos, meditation audios, diet plans…basically a bit of A-list living, for 50 quid.

This one could be for you, if your Davina  Fitness DVD (2008 edition) is still wrapped in its plastic covering, as you get notifications cheering you on making it easier to stay motivated. Plus you there's around 70 good healthy recipies to try out.

L’Oréal Make-Up Genius

You know when you try a foundation shade and it looks great on the back of your hand but when you get home and apply it all over your face you realise it’s ALL kinds of wrong? This app lets you try make-up on before you’ve even left the house and before you say it, no this isn’t a ten year old's dress up toy. Using your phone camera, you can apply different beauty looks in real time and decide whether that new electric blue eyeliner suits you. Or just isn't the one.

The uber of the beauty world, this is excellent for when you really want that manicure but are mid-way through Girls and frankly you just can’t be bothered to move. With Priv, you can order a treatment and a therapist merrily turns up at your door in under an hour. It’s only in London at the moment but we know they have swift plans to roll it out nationwide, so download and watch this space!
