If you’re looking for something that does no harm but can still be cause for some laughs, AirBrush has got you covered. We’ve got a few unique ways our tools can be used to pull a trick or two on your followers. Nothing unforgivable, we promise.

The Long Lost Twin

Imagine the surprise and shock of introducing your long lost twin. Your followers have neither seen nor heard of such a sibling and like magic, they appear on your timeline. Dressed identically and mirroring each other of course. Isn’t that what twins do? With our Stamp tool, you’ll easily have your viewers scrolling back to see if they missed this bit of trivia along the way.

  • Go to the Tools Tab on the Main menu and select Stamp
  • Swipe over and select the area you want to stamp over. Tap the right-facing arrow to move on.
  • Select the area of the photo you want to stamp with 
  • Tap the checkmark to save your edit.

The Bold Makeover

When you’re known as a person who enjoys a curated look, posting an out of character makeover is going to have some doing double-takes. We want to make it believable, so we recommend Hair Dye to apply an outlandish color. Alternatively, going from light to dark or vice versa can be just as impactful. This April fools prank calls for an impractical, out of character, boldly applied color, that will leave your audience thinking ”what are they thinking?!”.
