You can thank Snapchat for the new craze that’s got everyone’s attention. Fun, funny, and yes, more than a little freaky, face swapping is all the rage among kids, teens, and adults. If you’ve ever wondered what you’d look like as your favorite celebrity, here’s your chance.
So what’s all the fuss about and how can you face swap your next selfie? All you need is a Snapchat account and a little know how and you’ll be sharing your face on Facebook, Twitter, (and everywhere else) in no time.
How to Face Swap
Step One – Launch SnapChat
Launch your Snapchat app and make sure you’re on the camera screen so you can see your pretty face staring back you.
Step Two – Active Lenses
Tap and hold your finger on your face until the mesh structure appears, which allows Snapchat to map your features.
Step Three – Locate Face Swap Lens
Swipe through the lens options at the bottom of the screen and select the face swap icon, which is yellow with two smiley faces.
Step Four – Team Up and Align Faces
Find yourself a friend and align both of your faces in the icons until each face is yellow. Mentally prepare yourself for the hilarity that is about to follow. You’re talking … your friend’s face is moving … but it’s on your body.
Got that? It’s so crazy yet mesmerizing at the same time, you can pretty much kiss your productivity goodbye for the next fifteen minutes. If you’re new to Snapchat, you can always download the app free for both iOS and Android.
Happy face swapping : )
