Nat decided to test out the popular filters to see if they worked — and what professional makeup artists really think of the filters that teach people how to contour and highlight.

Called dot contour filters, they’re quick, easy, and require almost no makeup experience—all you need is a smartphone.

It might look strange at first, but thousands of social media users swear by it, saying that the filters help them achieve the “Hollywood look”.

After that, all you need to do is get a brush and blend.

The filters work like a personal template, using face recognition technology to determine which colors go where to bring out the best in your facial features.

“I wasn’t so sure, so I decided to try a filter myself,” Nat said in a special Sunrise post on Tuesday.

“Okay I just went off the air and I took every skerrick off of makeup and I’m going to try this new AI makeup,” she said.

After the dots were superimposed on her face, Nat began applying different makeup products to different parts of her face and blending as instructed.

“Okay…well, I feel very natural,” she said.

“Would I do it (regularly)? Perhaps…”

Nat then asked her makeup artist at Sunrise for her opinion on the facial recognition technology filters.

“I think it’s a great way to get into contouring and highlighting. Thanks for trying,” said makeup artist Mel Giglaotti.

“I think it’s best if you apply a light layer of foundation first and then use the (filter) technique to highlight and contour your face to add dimension.”

“So if I was 16 and had a clean, shiny face, would it be better?” asked Nat.

“That might be better for a younger person,” Mel replied.

“But for a more finished look, it would really be better to apply a light coat of foundation and then that on top.”

While filters are a bit fun and great for learning contours and highlights, pros say it’s the work you put in off-camera that really counts.

And the results vary by age.

No matter what look you’re going for, Nat says it’s important to remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

“There’s no right or wrong because at the end of the day, it’s about having faith in your own skin,” she said.

Nat later admitted that as someone who wore a full face of professional makeup to work every day, she wasn’t actually “that good at makeup.”

“We have professionals treating us every day and that’s why we look better,” she added.

When the segment was posted to Sunrise’s Instagram, fans were intrigued.

“Great technique although you wouldn’t need a lot of makeup Nat you have beautiful natural skin,” wrote one fan.
