In today’s speedy dating climate, it’s not easy to stand out in the search for love. Especially not when you live in Stockholm, the most single crowded capital in the world. But what would happen if you got the largest and most stylish dating ad in the world? Mood Stockholm, a shopping mall in the heart of the city, recruited four ‘singles’ to promote the mall and themselves. They gave them a new stylish wardrobe, a photo shoot and a 4m x 3m large dating ad in subway stations around Stockholm. Created by Advertising agency Volt, Sweden

Google has unveiled a delightful ad campaign in the form of playful mini installations placed in outdoor spaces around New York City.
Located in well-known and familiar establishments like Katz’s Delicatessen and Top Of The Rock, the ads pose questions relating to their surroundings, accompanied by the Google mobile app logo.
The campaign was conceived by agency 72andSunny to promote the search engine giant’s revamped mobile app, and involved extensive collaboration with numerous organizations and companies to bring it to life.

L’Oreal’s Makeup Genuis App offers a virtual experience for cosmetics. The app allows potential customers to see themselves wearing makeup that isn’t already applied in real life. Instantly try on different shades and shadows at the quick tap of a button by applying makeup to your reflection. When you hold your smartphone up, the preferred lip gloss, eye-shadow or bronzer moves along with your facial expressions while taking into effect the surrounding light.
Virtual cosmetics is a mess-free experience developed by a team of scientists and engineers in the company’s Connected Beauty Incubator. The team of 15 built out the app over two years, testing eye, lip and cheek products on hundreds of models with various skin types and colors. They put the models under 400 different lighting conditions to capture the natural change in shade and texture. Over 100,000 images were taken to differentiate the makeup from real-life and digital. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Makeup Genius is the company’s most advanced digital production to date.
There’s no denying the app is head of the curve when it comes to beauty technology. Users can browse and ‘try-on’ different looks from makeup artists or scan any in-store product to see how it models through the screen. App users can share their favorite looks or designs with their friends and social networks for fun or to gather feedback on their new look.
Makeup Genius is available in France and the U.S., and has reportedly 1.7 million downloads to date. Makeup Genius is available for iOS download in the App store.
