The days of spreading a smear of lipstick on your skin in department stores to see if it matches your tone or desired look may soon be over, thanks to Apple’s ARKit framework that allows developers to access iOS 11’s powerful augmented reality tools in the upcoming OS. A developer called ModiFace, which creates augmented reality apps for the beauty industry, showed off its virtual lipstick application program running on an iPhone, reports 9to5Mac.
