Spend less time at the makeup store; through a sensor, this device recreates your skin tone through a blend of foundation hues

Many a makeup lover can attest to the difficulty of finding just the right shade of foundation. Even testing the product in-store doesn't fully solve the problem. Sometimes shoppers can get home to see the foundation under a different light and realize they made a mistake. Skin tone can also change subtly from season to season, prompting another visit to the makeup section. But Adorn hopes to tackle this beauty challenge with the use of technology.

Using a smart sensor, the device picks up on the user's skin tone and uses a blend of foundation hues to recreate that shade. The device then prints the shade for easy use.
