9 Best Skin Tone Detection Apps For Android

We often want to change something in our appearance. Whether it’s a change in hair color, hairstyle, or changing eye color.

It can be hard enough to imagine yourself in a new role. That’s why you can make these changes to photos beforehand and get a better look at the new image. Luckily, Android offers such opportunities.

In today’s review, we’ll look at how to detect the tone of your skin to find the perfect look, accessories, and cosmetics or find your own color scheme.


This app helps determine skin tone, but only for one specific purpose. If you are planning to take UV sunbeds and want your tan to look as natural as possible, download Plan YOUR TAN. It will help you do just that.

After installing the app, choose a photo from your phone’s gallery and upload it. The app will detect your skin tone from selfies. Then, it will offer a perfect tan for UV sunbeds based on your skin tone analysis.

There are certain obvious guidelines for taking selfies:

  • Only your face should be in the frame;
  • No glasses or other objects on your face;
  • Natural light is your helper, so the color of your face will be as close to the real as possible.

The app doesn’t have a high rating on the app store. But still, the test showed that it really works at least somehow, and gives a certain result.

Third step. Set which area of skin you want to identify and then press the Match My Skin button.

Fourth step. The perfect tone for your skin will appear on the screen. Naturally, this is the Microskin palette. But the app can be used as a basis for matching your foundation shade. It’s up to you.


The app works without bugs. Everything in it is well thought out. But it seems to me that the detection of skin type is only approximate. A lot depends on the quality of the photo, shadows, and light. You can take a few pictures and get different results each time.

Try to make the photo as close as possible to your natural skin color and then the result will be more accurate.

Skin Bliss is an amazing application for girls. It helps take care of your skin. Download the app, take a quick registration, and describe all about your skin.

There are many parameters in the app for determining your skin type. And one of them includes determining your skin tone by the way it behaves in the sun.

It’s not really a skin tone detector. No cameras or photos to determine skin color. But the app does offer lots of skincare advice based on the information you provide.

It’s a real boon for girls who care about their skin. You can always look at all your skincare products right here. It’s very handy, just take a picture and it’s easy to see if it’s right for you.

The principle of operation of this application is quite similar to the first in the list.  Medgic is originally designed to detect skin defects and then eliminate them.

But this is not a big hindrance, as when analyzing the skin defect of your face app accordingly determines the tone. To recognize skin tone or imperfection, simply point the camera to this area.

The application has a pretty beautiful and simple interface (something like a minimalist style). Medgic is not only designed for skin tone recognition, but it can also detect skin (dry, greasy, combined, old, and so on). This app is a great tool for determining skin tone and health.

Mary Kay Skin Analyzer

The Mary Kay Skin Analyzer app will help you analyze your skin. Mary Kay will use your facial scans to offer you care cosmetics. For example, the app can recognize the slightest signs of aging (wrinkles) on your face.

The tool can also detect uneven texture or skin tone. The application is a virtual consultant on the selection of cosmetics to improve the condition of the face.

 Of course, modern technology will not replace people. The virtual consultant is not as good as a real consultant in the store. However, it can do many things, such as writing skin care recommendations using Mary Kay cosmetics.

The virtual consultant does this with the help of data from about 100 thousand users with a lot of reviews, qualitatively selecting only the products you need.

After scanning your skin, the application shows a picture that shows all the drawbacks, such as bruises under your eyes, wrinkles, and so on. The application primarily offers Mary Kay brand products in order of application.

Everything is pretty nice. The app has a beautiful interface in delicate pink shades. In the middle of the screen is your face. After scanning, you can switch to the tab with product recommendations and their description.

But there is one drawback. The application would be much more convenient to use if you had the opportunity to upload previously taken photos, because not always we have the opportunity to take photos, for example, due to poor lighting.

Color Grab

Color Grab is an application for accurate color detection. The sensor is great to know the exact color of the skin. The application is widely used by designers and designers, replacing the tool «dropper».

To learn the right color, you should just go to the surface of this color and attach your gadget. When the app scans the color, it will transfer it to your history of action, so you can share a color sample with your colleagues and friends, or for example, a consultant at a cosmetics store to choose the color of your foundation.

The Color Grab recognizes colors so thoroughly that they are used even by professional designers or photographers because it prevents unwanted light from passing by and blocking it. The application has a fairly simple design based on various geometric shapes.
