  • Beauty vlogger tries to fool the iPhone X's Face ID with drag makeup

    Another iPhone, another newfangled feature to play around with. And, people are already having heaps of fun trying to trick the iPhone X's face ID feature, which unlocks your phone using your face.  SEE ALSO: Here's how the iPhone X Face ID handles contouring Makeup artist James Charles got his hands on the new iPhone X and decided to see how much makeup it took to affect the facial recognition tool.  First, Charles tried out an intense contouring look. The result? The iPhone unlocked.  He stepped things up a little with some highly fleeky brows. Again, the iPhone unlocked. It was time to really, really crank things up. He applied his drag lashes. At first, the phone seemed like it wouldn't unlock, but, yet again, the phone unlocked.  Frustrated, Charles tried out a full drag makeup look, including a wig and overlined lips. To his surprise—and ours!—the phone still wasn't fooled.  Charles tried one last thing: his most recent Instagram photo. He'd used the Facetune app to doctor the image before posting it. For the first time in Charles' experiment, the iPhone X didn't unlock.  Guess we're all gonna have to try a lot harder if we want to fool the iPhone X.
