Little girls love to play with makeup—and so do grownup ones! Wouldn’t we all like to be able to try on hundreds of makeup products at home and only buy the ones that really make us look great? There are many online sites that offer virtual makeovers that are as close as you can get to that fantasy. You upload a photo of yourself, then try a variety of products and looks until you find exactly what you want.

How well do they work? I test drove a number including,,, and And I ran into a number of issues: membership fees, hair styles that resembled bad wigs, limited product selections and broken links. So I can say without hesitation that my favorite is is fast, easy to use and offers a wide variety of brands, including Lancome, Estee Lauder, Make Up For Ever, Vincent Longo, Trish McEvoy, Clinque and Chanel. Play around with this site for a while, and you can get great results. I’d add one warning. If you get too enthusiastic with the corrections, your results may be too good to be true—you have to keep it real.

When I got just the look I wanted from my makeover, I ordered two Clinique products at—Clinique/Blushwear Cream Stick/Peachy Blush, $18.50, and Clinique/Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick/Ambrosia, $14.00. Sephora delivered the products in five days, and both proved to be good choices, as well as pretty true to the samples on the site. The Ambrosia lipstick, a bright coral with a hint of red, had a sheer, moist texture and subtle sheen. The Peachy Blush went on smoothly and the warm color brightened my fair skin. I would definitely be willing to try new products at Taaz in the future.

Pick the right site for your virtual makeover, and getting a fresh new look can be easy and fun!
