Step 3: Alignment

In order for Mary Kay to be able to accurately apply the different kinds of makeup, it needs to be accurately aligned.

For example, the software needs to know exactly where the eyes are:

Or where the mouth is:

You’ll have to go through a few different alignment screens before you can move on to the makeup screen. The whole process takes about 3 minutes.

Step 4: Apply Lipstick

To apply lipstick once you’re done with the alignment process, click “Lipstick” near the top of the navigation bar.

You can change the shape of the lipstick in the lower right.

Step 5: Apply Eyeliner or Mascara

To apply eyeliner or mascara, click either category on the left. You can also select specific types of mascara to apply.

Choose the color or shade in the sub-menu and the effect will be applied to the photo.
