How do I use face filters on Instagram?

To take a photo or video with a face filter:

  1. Tap in the top left of the screen or swipe right from anywhere in feed.
  2. Tap then select a filter at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap to take a photo or tap and hold to take a video. When using the front or back-facing camera, the filter you choose will automatically appear on the closest person’s face.

Face filters also work while using Live, Boomerang, Hands-Free and Rewind camera formats, and some filters work with two faces at once.

Keep in mind that face filters in Live aren't available yet on Android devices and some older operating systems.
