I have started creating AR filters for Instagram! When I found out that Facebook has opened up the AR filter creation tool to the public I immediately focused on learning the Spark AR platform inside out. I have a bachelor’s degree in graphic design so learning was relatively straightforward and very exciting. I had long been mesmerized by Snapchat filters and their ability to change our features and smooth our skin so perfectly but I didn’t always like the way they changed my facial features so to be able to create my own version was so satisfying.
My filters work a lot like the makeup looks I create for my instagram. Since Facebook banned the use of facial deformation which is basically changing the features of a persons face much like plastic surgery does (smaller nose, bigger eyes, larger lips etc) I have been focused on finding ways to use shading and makeup to create fun and beautiful effects for my followers.
Below are three of my favorite Instagram filters at the moment with links to try them, I hope enjoy them as much as I do <3
