PALO ALTO, Calif., July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Meitu Inc. (SEHK: 1357), the world's leading beauty app developer, with downloads on over 1.1 billion unique devices, today announced the launch of three exclusive virtual makeup looks created by Celebrity Makeup Artist, Daniel Chinchilla. Chinchilla's looks are available for virtual try-on globally through Meitu's MakeupPlus app.
Chinchilla, who is known for his ability to expertly craft cutting-edge looks with a flawless complexion, gained prominence, and a dedicated fan base, working as Ariana Grande's makeup artist for her worldwide "Dangerous Woman" tour. His many years in the industry have landed him in numerous magazines, national television shows, and have allowed him to serve as beauty expert for multiple digital platforms and beauty companies. Chinchilla is now bringing his expertise to MakeupPlus by providing users the opportunity to virtually try on three of his specially curated looks.
"I love making people feel their most beautiful – which is why I worked closely with the MakeupPlus team to create versatile looks that work for any occasion and make you feel like your best self," said Chinchilla. "My biggest source of inspiration is from my clients – and I've found that the key to some of my best work starts at the base – glowing skin!! It's so on trend right now – and it's true that glowing skin is healthy skin - so I made sure this was incorporated into each of the looks designed for the app."
"We're very excited to be partnering with Daniel, and we know our users will be thrilled at the opportunity to try on three looks inspired by the aesthetic Daniel uses for his celebrity clientele," shared Liz Goodno, Director of Global Public Relations at Meitu. "Daniel is the perfect partner for MakeupPlus since his signature look, a glowing complexion with a strong highlight, is exactly what so many of our users are looking to achieve right now."
Daniel Chinchilla's virtual makeup looks include:
- Glow Up – Perfect for day-to-night, Glow Up provides a subtle contour with an on-trend glossy lip. Achieve a fresh-faced summer glow and share it with your beauty besties – #summergoals!
- Stunner – The epitome of glam, this look pairs a sultry, burnt orange lip with extra-long lashes and just a touch of glitter – it's time to bring out your inner diva!
- Star Girl – This look will *light* up your life with the perfect touch of highlighter on cheeks, brows and nose. Plus, totally "lash" out with an alluring smoky eye.
Users are encouraged to wear and share their favorite virtual makeup looks by Daniel Chinchilla and hashtag #BeautyByDChinchilla. MakeupPlus' partnership with Chinchilla comes on the heels of the app's collaboration with other notable male makeup artists including Angel Merino aka Mac Daddyy and Bretman Rock.
