By Lindsey Coco for GLAM4GOOD
We think you're gorgeous just as you are, but let's face it -- we are inundated on a daily basis with pictures of stars, models and "it" girls looking flawless. Pretty much every image you see posted from our pop culture icons is manipulated to look cooler or prettier by a filter or two. Mary Alice Stephenson, beauty expert, fashion insider and founder of GLAM4GOOD, knows the filters the stars use when posting their selfies and wants you to have the tools to look perfect, too. Sometimes we all just need a little help from the App Store! So here are Stephenson's favorite GLAM4GOOD beauty apps at our favorite price: FREE. As Coco Chanel used to say, "The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive."
