Question about face filters!

  • Hey Mandachildress,

    The best way to go about any sort of realistic makeup is to take advantage of our Face Paint Template and guide here. Try using the Face Paint Photoshop Template found in the guide to create your own eyelashes on top of the model's face, then export and add your newly made 2D texture to the appropriate face sprite (i.e. "Eyes") in Lens Studio.

    Let me know if you have any further questions about this.

    Happy Creating!

  • Well, it sounds easy enough but I'm having trouble with everything blending well. After using the photoshop template do I then save just the makeup (not the face) as a PNG and put it as the texture for face paint eyes??

  • Exactly.

    When you’re ready to export, select the Artboard you’re working in, and in the menu bar select File > Export > Artboards to Files.

    In the Artboard to Files options, choose PNG as the file type if you have transparency, or JPEG if you don’t. Make sure to have Artboard Content Only and Export Selected Artboards checked.

    Once you've exported your texture(s), you can add them to Lens Studio by dragging and dropping them into the Resources panel.

    With your texture imported, find the Face Paint Template Source object in the Objects panel. Underneath are multiple Face Mask effect objects that correspond to the available Artboards in the Photoshop template (Eye, Lips and Full). Duplicate the one that corresponds to the texture you created by selecting it in the Objects panel, right clicking and selecting Duplicate. Next, select your new object and in the Inspector panel, and set the Texture field to your imported texture. 

    Finally, try changing each Face Mask Effect’s Blend Mode and Alpha to adjust the appearance of your texture.

  • Hi Kaitlyn,

    I'm sort of trying to do the same, however with the Snapchat lenses made by snapchat the eyelashes seem seem to be able to move with the eyelid (up and down when closing the eye) when I try this they stick to the eye region and don't move down at all...  is there a specific setting for this, or is it a special feature us mortals Lens Studians havent acquired yet :p
