In the land of hookup apps and millennial dating, February 14th could just as well be any other day.
Which gets pretty boring after swiping left so hard your index finger begins to callus. This, especially if you live in a small town and have already gone through the entire index of people … thrice.
Hookups are easy. But finding your more significant match – we’re talking beauty! – that’s a different story. While we wish we could be there to recommend products before every one of your special dates, that’s just not physically possible (yet!). Instead, what if there was a Tinder for beauty, one that finds perfect products for you? We reimagined swiping right to find that one perfect product for every one of your favorite facial traits.
