The Future of AR in Beauty: What to Expect in the Coming Years

As technology continues to advance at a remarkable pace, the beauty industry is no exception to its transformative power. Augmented Reality (AR) opportunities have emerged as a game-changer in the beauty sector, revolutionizing the way we perceive and interact with cosmetics, skincare, and beauty products. In this article, we’ll delve into the exciting world of AR in beauty, exploring its various aspects and the promising future it holds.

AR in Skincare: Personalized Routines for Every Skin Type

The beauty industry’s long-standing challenge has been finding the perfect products for every unique skin type. AR technology is set to change that.

Sustainable Beauty: How AR Can Help Reduce Product Waste 

Sustainability is a growing concern in the beauty industry. AR can play a significant role in reducing product waste by enabling virtual try-ons, allowing customers to see how a product looks on them before purchasing, reducing the need for physical samples. Powered by QReal, PulpoAR offers seamless virtual try-on experiences for BakeUp Beauty, Flormar and Beymen.  

AR in the Salon: Transforming the Professional Beauty Experience 

Salons are embracing AR technology to enhance the professional beauty experience. Hair stylists and makeup artists can use AR tools to demonstrate different looks, ensuring customers are satisfied with the end result. Imagine a smart mirror at the beauty salon on which a client is welcomed to try on a variety of products right before getting them applied for the exact look they are looking for. 

The AR Social Community: Sharing Makeup Looks in a Virtual World

AR has given rise to a thriving online beauty community. Beauty enthusiasts can create and share makeup looks in a virtual world, fostering creativity and self-expression. QReal has so far collaborated with brands such as Urban Decay and Essie on Snapchat lenses that allowed users to virtually try-on products from foundations to nail polishes and share their experiences on social media channels. 

Enhanced Shopping Experience: AR’s Influence on In-Store and Online Retail


Whether you’re shopping in a store or online, AR enhances the beauty shopping experience. Virtual try-ons, product recommendations, and interactive displays are making the process more engaging and efficient.


The beauty industry is on the cusp of a digital revolution, and AR is at its forefront. From personalized skincare routines to a sustainable and a vibrant online beauty community, the possibilities are endless. The future of AR in beauty holds the promise of a more inclusive, creative, and sustainable industry, and it’s an exciting journey to be a part of.
