Megvii Launches AI-powered Makeup and Beauty Solution

2020-04-16

Beijing, April [15], 2020 – Megvii announced today the launch of FaceStyle, an AI-powered makeup and beauty solution that allows end-users to personalize their shopping experience by trying on makeup virtually through computers or mobile devices.

 

Using Megvii’s leading facial recognition technology and its proprietary Brain++ AI productivity platform, FaceStyle accurately captures and replicates end-users’ facial features, via a few thousand key points around the mouth, eyes, nose and eyebrows, to demonstrate the effect of makeup in a realistic setting. It is able to analyse and recreate the individuals’ facial appearance, including skin and lip colour, wrinkles and spots. FaceStyle can also generate skin condition diagnosis and provide personalised skincare recommendations to end-users.


 


The solution can be implemented both online and offline in retail stores to minimise physical contact, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been deployed by several customers including Haitunjia, an e-commerce platform with over 50 million registered members in China.

 

FaceStyle offers beauty brands a low-cost AI-powered online product marketing system and supports salespeople in providing tailormade recommendations to their customers based on FaceStyle’s diagnosis. The solution also embeds data capability that allows beauty brands to track and measure which products sell best. The solution does not collect or store any personally identifiable data.

 

Zhao Liwei, senior vice president of Megvii’s cloud services business, said: “Traditional industries including the cosmetics and skincare sector face specific challenges in that consumers want to try out new products before making a purchase. They needed a solution that allows customers to try on makeup virtually in a way that accurately reflects their features and the pigment of their skin for a realistic experience. However, they do not have the capabilities to develop these solutions themselves. AI technology can help to address this challenge. ”

 

He added: “FaceStyle not only offers a new way of marketing for clients to promote their brands and boost sales, it also marks a start for Megvii to accelerate the commercialisation of our AI technologies in traditional industries.”
