Want a cutting-edge brow treatment at work? Crystal therapy at home tonight? These are the apps for that…

Beauty Stack

Imagine seeing the coolest box braids on Instagram, then tapping through for an appointment with their creator. That’s essentially Beautystack; created by WAH Nails founder Sharmadean Reid. Book one-of-a-kind nail artists, brow technicians and healers.

Free on iOS and Android 

Cocoa Swatches

Born out of a successful Instagram page, Cocoa Swatches was set up by Ofunne Amaka to champion diversity in beauty and review all the latest launches (Urban Decay’s newest palette is on there, as is every shade of Fenty Stunna Lip Paints) with underrepresented complexions in mind.

Free on iOs and Android 

Skin Matters

Skin Matters is a font of beauty knowledge which allows you to search for information on 2,000 skincare ingredients. Created by top facialist Joanne Evans, you can use it to work out the best regime for your skin type. 

£0.99 for iOS only

Blow LTD

Blow LTD offers access to over 650 professionals, who cover everything from blow-dries to home waxing. Operating from 7am to late all week long in London, Birmingham and Manchester, you can book with just two hours’ notice. 

Free on iOS and Android 

Slapp

Buying foundation is tricky. Going into a store is time-consuming and shade matching online is a minefield. Enter Slapp. Upload a selfie and it’ll pair you with your perfect foundation, concealer and powder shades across numerous brands. 

£0.99 on iOS and Android

Ruuby

From private pilates sessions to Christian Louboutin manicures, express spray tans, and even two-hour lymphatic drainage massages, Ruuby’s health and fitness app has been described as “the Uber for beauty”. Available in London, you can book appointments between 6am to 11pm at home or at work. 

Free on iOS and Android 

Nail Buff

A must-download tool for nail polish aficionados. Use the integrated colour wheel or upload pictures of colours you like (from clothes, bags, anywhere really) and the app will find the closest matching nail shade and give you the name and brand.

Free on iOS only     

Mindbody

Spanning fitness, beauty and wellness, you can toggle to discover experiences like rocket yoga, Beyoncé-themed barre, reiki and cryotherapy then book them into your daily schedule. You can even connect your Fitbit to track your activity.

Free on iOS and Android

Moody Month

The more information you give Moody Month, the more insight about your monthly cycle it will give you back. Input details of your periods including anxiety levels, cramp intensity, or sex drive to create your own personalised report that will help identify your hormonal patterns.
