What would TikTok do without filters? Sometimes it even feels like social media was invented just so that we could all use and play around with filters. Every now and then, one filter bursts out of the crowd and becomes an instant hit. The skinny filter has certainly become an instant crowd favourite.
The purpose of the filter is as simple and straightforward as its title: Skinny. It transforms the contours of your face to a skinny, angular one. And certainly with some interesting results.
Skinny Filter Fun
The filter really took off when one TikTok user, who goes by the handle @guavajuice, applied it on his selfie not once, not twice, but a grand total of 10 times. His original, slightly round face transformed into one that was almost unrecognisable. Even alien.
The user’s own surprise at the effect was conveyed in a simple, short phrase:
“What in the bussin
#greenscreen #skinny #fake #filter”
The Skinny Filter craze has led to the creation of another similar feature called ‘Slim’ filter. Opinion remains divided on which one is better. Or whether if there is any difference between the two at all. Maybe you should try it out for yourself.
How To Install The Skinny Filter
Installing and using the Skinny Filter is easy. Here’s how to do it in 4 simple steps:
- 1. Download the FaceApp application on iOS or Google Play.
- 2. Snap a photo of yourself on the app or pick one you already have.
- 3. Then you’ll get to edit the photo. Select “Sizes” and then hit “Small Face.”
- 4. rom here you’ll be able to select your desired filter.
Once the filter is installed, you will need to record a video and upload it to TikTok. Now we must tell you that you’ll need a “pro account” in order to access the feature. But if you don’t want to pay, there’s a way around it. Just subscribe to a free trial and use the filter to your heart’s content before it expires.
The Slim Filter Trend
The filter has become an instant hit. This has led to other filters that can be used to alter their body shapes as well. The results are always interesting. And always fun.
