Gender Affirming Makeup (GAM)

A tool for empowerment and expression.


  • Software
  • OpenCV
  • Simulation
  • Computational Geometry

This project was not completed as part of my MS thesis due to interuptions from COVID-19. I would love to pick it up one day, finish the software, do user tests, and publish and release the code.

What if we could leverage technology and modern cosmetics for empowerment?

The goal of this project is to use mathematics and computation to create a tool that will allow a user to add more feminine, masculine, or androgynous traits to themselves with cosmetics. After interacting with the tool, the user will receive a list of cosmetics and then follow along with the tool in real time while they apply their makeup.

This tool is something I developed during my first year at the Media Lab, and was intended for my original MS thesis. More info from the lab page
