How to use face swap with Snapchat

  1. Launch Snapchat from your Home screen.
  2. Make sure the front-facing camera is on.
  3. Find a potential face swap victim.

    Launch Snapchat, tap the camera button to switch to the front-facing camera, find a face swap victim

  4. Tap on your face and hold for a second — a white grid should appear on your face and the lens options will pop up at the bottom of your screen.

  5. Swipe left until you find the face swap option.
  6. Adjust your faces into position — this may take a few tries!

    Tap and hold your face until a grid appears, swipe left until you hit the face swap lens option, place both faces in the circles

Now you're ready to start face swapping with anyone and everyone you see! Don't limit yourself to just your friends and family, though. Try face swapping with posters, your pets, album covers, magazines, dolls, old photographs, comic books, TV, posters, and more. Face swap can have some somewhat practical uses, too. Try out face swap if you're curious about certain makeup looks and don't have the patience, skill, or time to execute them on your own!
