ChatGPT and AI are becoming hot topics in the beauty industry thanks to their natural language processing (NLP) capabilities.

We were eager to understand how a chatbot could respond to us when we prompt with anything beauty or makeup related, hoping it would provide us with step-by-step guidelines on picking our makeup for the day and creating the trendy look we wanted.

Our quest on this topic started with only how to use ChatGPT for makeup, but on the way, we discovered that it could do much more with it. For instance, we find out that it can also create personalized product recommendations based on our skin type preferences, beauty routines for problematic skin, or even create a beauty brand with a full-on marketing strategy.

The possibilities for using it are endless, and here, we’ll tackle some of the most interesting ones.

How you can use ChatGPT to pick your makeup look

If you have been using ChatGPT for all sorts of things so far, for example, to help you write your resume, brainstorm, or for dating, you can also use it to give you ideas, tips, and valid suggestions on makeup.

We were curious to see whether this works and tested it on some cool prompts we’ll share here.

Take a look, and you may be inspired for your future makeup look.

Prompt 1: Give me a step-by-step guidelines for a makeup look with ultra-glossy cheekbones for the upcoming summer.

We asked ChatGPT which are the top 3 makeup brands in 2023

Even though this might be true, based on what ChatGPT estimated, it might also not be fully true since these brands can vary.

But, since it responded that training only goes up until September 2021 and can’t give us real data on market ratings for skincare brands in 2023, we shouldn’t trust it fully.

We asked ChatGPT to design a big beauty brand

The prompt we used:

“Design a beauty brand that could potentially be the next 'it' brand in the beauty industry. Also, give me a bullet-point marketing strategy to use when launching it. The makeup brand targets young girls aged 15-23. I want it to be a brand that they can afford and want to use daily and also for specific events or gatherings.”

Quick Note: The better the prompt description you’ll give, the better the results it will provide.

How can ChatGPT assist beauty and personal care companies

Upscale skincare label Dermalogica recently introduced a ChatGPT rendition of their "Dermalogica: The Book" skincare therapy guide, a training tool for professional skincare therapists.

The company's broader strategy of incorporating technology is designed to empower its employees to utilize AI, not be supplanted by it.

This integration allows professional skincare therapists to receive immediate, tailored responses to queries on the brand's official website, enhancing their knowledge about Dermalogica's products, usage, and salon arrangement.

In an interview for the beauty and wellness magazine, Glossy, Aurelian Lis, the Global CEO of Dermalogica, emphasized that while AI will not replace touch-based skin care services, therapists must upgrade their skills with emerging tech tools. He aspires for his team to lead the AI revolution in the beauty industry rather than merely following it.
