Perfect365® Gets Wild With GSN’s “Skin Wars”

ArcSoft’s Digital Makeover App Creates Massive Mobile Engagement, Celebrates Artists, Designs from the Current Season of GSN’s Body Painting Competition, Hosted by Rebecca Romijn

FREMONT, Calif.--()--ArcSoft, the global leader of image-intelligent technologies, announced today it has completed an extraordinarily creative collaboration between its digital makeover app, Perfect365®, and GSN’s “Skin Wars,” television’s first-ever body painting competition and the network’s most-watched program ever. From June 4 to June 17, the app’s more than 60 million users were able to try on creations inspired by art from the upcoming season’s contestants and last season’s winner, Natalie Fletcher. The campaign, which featured an exclusive package of four Hotstyles, was a tremendous success, garnering more than four million engagements and reaching more than 20 million users across the United States.

As the most popular digital makeover app worldwide, Perfect365 gives users unprecedented control over their smart phone portraits. Thanks to dozens of Hotstyle one-tap makeovers, more than 20 customizable makeup and tweaking tools, Style it! clothing and accessory recommendations, and step-by-step how-tos that make recreating Hotstyles with real-life makeup a cinch, Perfect365 has become the go-to app for selfie and makeup enthusiasts around the world.

Hosted by actress Rebecca Romijn (X-Men) and featuring legendary entertainer RuPaul Charles and body painting icons Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina as judges, “Skin Wars” seeks to find the most skillful, accomplished and versatile body painter in America. Perfect365 partnered with MediaBrix, the technology ad platform that provides emotionally contextual experiences to consumers. The partnership offered the exclusive Skin Wars package to users enabling Perfect365 fans to experience some of their favorite body art for themselves: trying on striking looks including a haunting Kabuki-inspired makeover, and realistic tiger face paint. Skin Wars continues to air Wednesdays at 9pm ET (8pm CT) on GSN.

“We’re proud of this collaboration with Skin Wars and of celebrating the artistry displayed by these talented body painters, represented in our custom looks,” said Sean Mao, VP of Consumer Products, ArcSoft. “With more than four million engagements in just two weeks, Perfect365’s unique Face Detection technology allows users replicate a true-to-life experience of this amazing art, by allowing them to try it on in a digital form.”

How Perfect365 works

After users have snapped a few selfies or loaded photos from their camera rolls, ArcSoft’s industry-leading Face Detection technology automatically maps a person’s eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth and hairline in just seconds. This allows users to create flattering, realistic makeovers with dozens of Hotstyles, one-tap makeovers inspired by today’s hottest styles, timeless looks or natural palettes. Users can also customize their looks with nearly 20 tweaking tools that whiten teeth, brighten eyes, banish blemishes and much more.
