Apps by Everyday Canadians: Makeup iQ! – The Digital Life


I think it’s pretty safe to say that the future of technology is on your mobile device, like the smartphone or tablet. Applications (simple mobile software) on your devices are a great way to promote your personal at-home business, and it is something that most people are able to do, if they are willing to dedicate the time and effort.

One of CityLine and Breakfast Television Make-up Artists, Tracy Peart (a.k.a. @TracypMakeup) has decided to promote her personal brand and bring her specialty in makeup to the web, through a new iPhone app in the iTunes App Store, rightly named, Makeup iQ.

In the words of the mastermind herself, “Makeup iQ is the first makeup app of it’s kind. It’s a quiz and makeup game mixed into one. Answer the skill testing makeup questions – the more answers you get correct, the more makeup and hairstyling you can apply to your model. The goal of this app is to help you learn more about makeup application, and have fun while you’re learning.”

While I’m personally not a consumer of makeup, I really commend Tracy for taking the “plunge” and using 21st-century technology to her benefit, and promote herself, while educating everyday Canadians with useful makeup tips!

As an average consumer on the web, Peart says that the application was months in the making, and that “It was truly a lot of work (and that’s putting it lightly), but I am so proud of it.”

It goes to show that with a computer, some affordable pieces of computer software, time, and effort, you yourself can make an app for yourself and your business.

Feel free to support her by downloading the application, and let us know, what do you think about it? Share your opinions with us by leaving a comment or email us at me@winstonsih.com, and I will pass them over to Tracy Peart!
