2.2 How to Use Rellface Filter, Anime Filter on TikTok

Can't find those filters in TikTok? Because these filters are not actually on TikTok, all of the three actually come from Snapchat. So you'll have to film your video with the exact filter effect on Snapchat and then upload it to TikTok.

All you need to do is open up Snapchat and find the relevant filter effect - Swap Face (for rellface), Anime Style (for anime filter).

Once you select the filter effect you need, just start recording your video with it. When you've done, save the video to your camera roll and then post it to TikTok.

Pro Tip:
The Rellface filter video is showing that someone's face is replaced with the face of Terrel. So if you're going to use the rellface filter on your video, you need to prepare a photo of Terrell's face before turning to Snapchat using the Swap Face effect.
