The Japanese cosmetic company built an augmented reality app that works alongside Skype for Business

A new piece of software from Shiseido and Microsoft, a plug-in called TeleBeauty  that is based on AR technology, is aimed at increasing the self-esteem of the women who work remotely by providing a filter that automatically polishes their appearance. The app works by applying virtual makeup to the individual's video image.Women using the app can choose one of four skin palettes: natural, trendy, cool, or pretty, before entering the teleconference call. Using the camera on a smartphone, tablet or device, the app scans the user’s face, adjusts for skin tone and then corrects pores, dark spots, and pimples. It also adds blush, lipstick, and eye makeup.
