"Fresh New Style" from Dress Up Games provides players with a stylized face template. Players add eye shadow, mascara, lipstick and blush to the face by clicking the different color options shown below each makeup tool.
"Max & Ruby Dress-Up" from Nick Jr. is aimed at children between the ages of 3 and 5. Players select the character they wish to dress, and then click and drag outfits onto that character. This game allows the player to choose from a selection of clothes, hats and shoes. When a player finishes dressing the character, she can choose to print an image of the final style.
In "Beauty Salon Makeover," players begin by applying various facial masks and cleansers to the template character. Players finish by applying makeup.
In "Makeup Mania," players must recreate looks shown on the screen for a short period of time. For example, the first task in this game requires players to match the shade of nail polish and the jewelry shown on a pair of hands.
