"Maybelline's mission is to give everyone the confidence to express their beauty. Whether you work in person or virtually, feeling good about yourself can help you be your best," said Trisha Ayyagari, Global Brand President. by Maybelline New York. "That's why we've partnered with Microsoft Teams to develop virtual makeup looks: now, even on the busiest of days, you can do your makeup with just one click.

Powered by Modiface AI and developed in collaboration with the Geena Davis Institute to ensure representation of a broad and diverse population, Maybelline aims to provide wearers with a range of looks that best suit their meetings, while allowing them to explore different makeup looks, that they might not otherwise have tried.

Consider it your "virtual makeup bag," stocked with all the must-have digital makeup products for our increasingly virtual world. With a simple click, users can choose from 12 makeup looks to complement their natural look and effortlessly feel their best. Each look has a product breakdown so users can understand which Maybelline New York product and shade make up the virtual look and recreate it in real life. Maybelline New York pioneered this innovation for the L'Oréal group. Virtual makeup looks are now available globally as an option in Teams video calls for those with a Teams enterprise license.
