Don’t worry, we’ve got an extra special tutorial just for you. Let’s go!

Sweetie Pie

For one, you’ll need a good pic of you and a significant other or friend(s). 

  • Let’s start off with some Valentines Makeup!
  • Go to your Makeup Tab.
  • You’ll notice that the Tool will automatically detect your faces.
  • Start by selecting yours.
  • When you open the Makeup Tab you’ll  see 4 gorgeous new Makeup Filters ready to get in the Luv Challenge vibe.
  • Candy, Crush, Rose, & Bare are all limited edition Makeup Filters and only here for the season.
  • Today let’s start with the Rose Makeup Filter.
  • Once you apply the Filter  you can use the center toggle to adjust the strength.
  • When you’re happy with your glow up you can tap the check mark on the bottom right to save your progress.

Time to spread the luv! (challenge)

  • After you’ve saved your progress tap the Makeup Tab again and this time select your friend’s face.
  • This time try to mix it up and try the Candy Makeup Filter.
  • Repeat the steps from before then tap that check mark to save all you progress.

Take Me Away

Who wouldn’t want to take their lover on a romantic rendezvous? The Luv Challenge is the perfect way to sweep your loved one off their feet with a virtual get away.

When you open your Background Tool you’ll find a collection of seasonal, preset Backgrounds all perfect for the Luv Challenge.

  • The Background Tool will automatically detect the focus matter in the image and apply the Background of your choice. 
  • You can tap through each Background as you figure out where you want to take your lovey.

Luckily the Background Tool allows for all sorts of adjustments.

  • Start off by pinching and dragging you and your lovey to the most ideal spot in the image.
  • You can even resize by pinching the focal points.

Sometimes you might end up with too much off a “glow” or the colors might be off.

  • Tap the white icon on the bottom right hand side to open the Adjust Panel.
  • Here, you’ll be able to make all the adjustments you need to perfect your Luv Challenge pic.
  • Blend will make your focal points a sync with the colorways of the Background.
  • Edge will help you shave off some of that residue from the previous Background.
  • If you’re seeing some areas that you didn’t want to transfer over you can manually Select Area by tapping the white icon on the bottom left.
  • Adjust the brush width by using the center toggle.
  • Tap the Eraser Icon to begin removing unwanted areas.
  • Tap the check mark on the bottom right to save your progress.

Frosting on Top

Lastly, we wouldn’t leave you hanging without a perfect set of brand new Filters for your Luv Challenge pic!

  • Find the perfect Filter that speaks to you and your lovey.
  • Use the center toggle to adjust the strength of the Filter.
  • Tap the check mark on the bottom right to save your edits.
