Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?

Long ago, there lived an evil queen in a far-off place. She had a magic mirror that never lied about true beauty. The Evil Queen asked the Magic Mirror the question “Magic mirror in my hand, who is the fairest in the land?” The mirror always replied: “My Queen, you are the fairest in the land.” But, when Snow White reached the age of seven, she became as beautiful as the day and even more beautiful than the Queen and when the Queen asked her mirror, it responded: “My Queen, you are the fairest here so true. But Snow White is a thousand times more beautiful than you.”
However, this was just a legend which we all read in our childhood and the wizardry doesn’t hold true in our present times. Till yesterday, I wished to have lived alongside Snow White at least, I could have witnessed a magic mirror which never lied. Luckily, in the morning, I heard a news about a mirror which never lies in my times as well. Yes, that is HiMirror Plus+. The HiMirror Plus is an updated version of the original HiMirror, with an improved interface and some new functionality. It contains a proprietary ‘Analysis Engine’ that helps you assess your skin’s conditions, including wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, dark spots and pores so that you can target problem areas to achieve your beauty goals.
Further, HiMirror Plus+ connects the power of Big Data through the internet to collect analytics from all over the world on skin conditions and skincare products in order to create custom built skincare procedures and skincare tips.
Moreover, the mirror has ‘skin history’ tracking system that lets you view your daily progress and then compares them with those from the previous months allowing you to choose the procedure that fits you the best.
Hold on! At least six people can use HiMirror Plus+. The mirror is safe and has security options as well. Its camera can only be activated with a personalized password for better security. Additionally, HiMirror Plus+ is equipped with two LED lights that replicate five lighting conditions. These are sunset, outdoors on a sunny day, brightly-lit office, supermarket and restaurant. This lighting condition will help users to apply makeup accordingly and appropriately for a set occasion.
Besides, functioning as an everyday mirror and at-home skincare consultant, HiMirror Plus+ also provides you with the weather forecast and the latest world news stories every time you log in. You can also use it to stream music from Spotify, as well as record and send audio/video messages to your phone.
HiMirror Plus was borne out of an innovative idea of having your at-home beauty consultant-driven by technology. The mirror weighs about 5.5 lbs and measures 18.97 x 11.18 x 2.00 in. The mirror has options to hang on the wall or attach to a bathroom mirror. It does come with screws and adhesive tapes. HiMirror Plus+ can be bought for $269.
