The popularization of taking and sharing selfies is creating new opportunities for beauty brands as consumers seek out products that can enhance their photographs as well as bringing the "photo-finish" effect to real life. The explosion in the popularity of image-based platforms is yet another case of social media changing how consumers interact.

Key Findings

• Today’s consumers are highly individualistic and want to express this in their interactions. This has been taken to a new level with image-based social media. Nevertheless, expanded sharing also does mean that consumers are under greater scrutiny and are therefore looking for beauty products which can ensure their appearance, and “brand” is validated positively.

• The popularity of “filters” on social media sites and for application to selfies prior to sharing is creating opportunities for brands to inspire their products using the positive connotations of filters on the appearance, engaging image-conscious and digitally savvy consumers.
