PC programs are particularly helpful when working with batches of images that are horizontal in shape (i.e. any image not taken on your mobile phone.

1. Wondershare Fotophire Focus

The first computer software that we’re going to be looking at is Wondershare’s Fotophire. It’s a program that is 100% intuitive, in that, it offers an easy to master drag and drop interface. With Fotophire, you can be very precise and/or very quick. This is through Presets (which allow for quick edits) and precision-based tools (which allow for on the nose editing.)

Wondershare Fotophire Focus
  • It enables you to fix blurry photos with a single click.
  • Help you to re-focus photos with the Creative Blur feature at your will.

  • Images are watermarked during the FREE trial

2. Movavi Photo Editor

Second is Movavi. This is a fairly large corporation — even if it’s still relatively unknown, that offers a variety of editing tools. It just so happens that they offer a Photo Editing tool as well. Their products are pretty highly acclaimed, and the Photo Editor offers a couple of presets that are made for face makeup editing.

Pros
  • Offers preset face makeup editing overlays
  • Is not just a face makeup editor — has other editing tools available as well
  • Precision editing is made possible with drag and drop
Cons

3. PHOTO MAKEUP EDITOR

URL: https://photo-makeup-editor.en.softonic.com/

The editing capabilities of the Photo Makeup Editor leaves a lot to be desired. However, it is a free program (if you don't count the annoying ads.) One thing’s for sure, this program was made to be used specifically for face makeup editing, which is not something that most graphics editors are able to claim.

Pros
  • An actual face makeup editor
  • Is 100% free-to-use
  • A small program that won’t take up much space on your computer
Cons
  • Features ads and other annoying popups
  • The effects are not natural-looking
  • Very limited in actual editing capabilities

4. PHOTO MAKEUP EDITOR 2.05

URL: https://photo-makeup-editor.soft112.com/description.html

The next editor, the Photo Makeup Editor 2.05, is another version of the one we had mentioned previously. Now, even though this is supposedly the newest version, there are people who like the older version more. If only because the editing capabilities for this one are not as good. Again, this is a FREE program that is made specifically for face makeup editing.

Pros
  • Photo Makeup Editor 2.05 is FREE
  • It’s a program made specifically for face makeup editing
  • A variety of Presets are available for use
Cons
  • Is ladened with disturbing ads — to balance the fact that it’s free to download
  • Face makeup editing effects look rather fake
  • Offers very little variety when it comes to editing capabilities

5. PHOTOSHOP

URL: https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

You might be wondering as to why Adobe Photoshop is so low on our list, and the answer is simple — it’s not really made to work as a face makeup editor. It can be used as one. However, that would require a lot of time spent on learning the tricks-of-the-trade and some background in illustration. If you’re a professional illustrator AND have access to a graphics tablet, then Photoshop is your answer, if not— then you’re better off using more intuitive programs like Fotophire.

Pros
  • Precision-based editing allows for detailed face makeup effects
  • Offers a variety of tools that will allow you to get the exact look that you want
  • Is a professional product used by many people all over the world.
Cons
  • Is NOT a face makeup editor
  • Will require Photoshop and Illustration training
  • Expensive Monthly/Yearly premium membership

6. PORTRAIT PRO

The Portrait Pro is a program that is made specifically for face makeup editing. It has a more professional look than most. However, it does require a one-time payment — as the Free Trial is very limited.

Pros
  • Is a face makeup editor — made for that purpose
  • Professional look
  • Offers a limited FREE trial
Cons
  • In order to be able to use the software properly — payment is required

8. PHOTO MAKEUP EDITOR SOFTSEA

URL: http://www.softsea.com/review/Photo-Makeup-Editor.html

The Softsea Photo Makeup editor is also made to be used specifically for face makeup editing. It’s similar to number 3 and 4 on our list. However, the biggest difference is that you have to pay for the product. You are able to try it out a maximum of 30 times, but after that, you must pay $29.00 in order to use it.

Pros
  • Softsea is made specifically for face makeup editing
  • Offers a FREE trial (first 30 uses)
  • Small program size
Cons
  • Requires payment after 30 uses

9. MAKEOVER (WINDOWS 10 APP)

URL: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/makeover/9wzdncrdknz9

Final Thoughts:

If I were to choose only one, then I would chose Fotophire. It was first on our list for a reason — it allows for easy but attractive face makeup editing. With Fotophire, you can get detailed edits, or use one of the available presets when you’re in a hurry — without having to sacrifice quality. That makes it the best option out of the 10 we mentioned on this list.

Part 2. 10 Most Helpful Face Makeup Apps in 2018

Now, it’s time for us to introduce you to a different set of face makeup editing tools. If you’re the type to prefer selfies, then these mobile apps might be of interest to you! We’ve compiled a top 10 list that you can refer to so that you can choose the app that works best for you.

1. FACETUNE

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lightricks.facetune

The first face makeup editing app that we’re going to introduce has to be the biggest one out there — the Facetune App. I’m sure you’ve heard of it before. It’s an app that was made specifically for editing your face, in a way that’s surprisingly natural (most of the time) and attractive. The Facetune app is available in both the FREE version and the paid version. The free version will have the usual ads and popups, whilst the paid version requires a $5.99 one-time payment.

2. MAKEUP PLUS

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.meitu.makeup

Our next mobile app, is called Makeup Plus. Much like the Facetune app, it will allow you edit your face in a way that is attractive and natural. It’s a FREE app, however, you’re going to have to sit through quite a bit of ads and popups whilst you make your edits. here.

3. MAKEUP

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.modiface.makeup

The Makeup App is a little different from the previous two. For one, it doesn’t allow for natural looks. It’s a good app if you want to look like a porcelain doll (complete with the pale skin and the bright lips,) but it’s not something that will work for everyone. The Makeup App is FREE, but as always — it comes with ads and popups.

4. PHOTO WONDER

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cn.jingling.motu.photowonder

Again, we’re going to move away from the concept that we had introduced previously. Photo Wonder is a different kind of face makeup editor. It relies on fancy overlays and filters that are beauty oriented. It does offer a couple of actual makeup tools as well, but not as much as the others.

5. YOUCAM MAKEUP

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cyberlink.youcammakeup

The Youcam App was our number 10 for the software list, but it makes its way pretty high up on this list for it’s app appeal. It’s definitely a lot easier to use on mobile, and is actually pretty popular. It offers a variety of face makeup editing tools and is proud of being the best of 2017. In-app purchases are available to use the app in its entirety (without ads or popups.)

6. INSTABEAUTY

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fotoable.fotobeauty

Instabeauty is actually a lot similar to our number 3 — it offers a variety of face makeup editing tools that are fun to use, but look kind of unnatural. Still, it’s pretty effective for an app, and it offers a lot of presets that will allow you to change your look without too much fuss.

7. PERFECT365

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arcsoft.perfect365

The Perfect365 is new, but it’s rising pretty quickly! It offers a more natural makeup look than most apps, and even has its own website! However, the fact that it’s new means that it hasn’t gained much traction in the market. Still, this is definitely an app to look out for!

8. MARY KAY

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.marykay.enterprise.VMO

Much like the Perfect365, the Mary Kay App is an up and comer to look out for. It offers a variety of face makeup editing tools that are the perfect bridge between attractive and slightly unnatural. I expect it to rise in the ranks given time.

9. PRETTY MAKEUP

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=photo.photoeditor.snappycamera.prettymakeup

The Pretty Makeup is a good all-arounder. Not only does it offer face makeup editing tools, but it also features a camera feature — which you can use to capture photos that are automatically imported into the app (making for quicker editing.)

10. BEAUTY MAKEUP

URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tudasoft.android.BeMakeup

The Beauty Makeup App is admittedly not one of the best ones out there. However, it does still offer a lot of the same makeup tools. Quality is not assured, but it’s got the basics down at least.

Conclusion:

There are many softwares and apps that you can use to edit your photographs, and each one has their own set of quirks. I personally prefer Wondershare’s Fotophire. It's a computer program that is as easy-to-use as any app out there, whilst still retaining top-quality.
