Even the most narcissistic of us fancy a little change from the person in the mirror occasionally. So whether you fancy a face-lift, want to try out a new look, or just feel like a laugh, we have five face changing apps for you.

Face Changer (Android|iOS)

Perhaps the most obvious pick this week is Face Changer. This app lets you morph, add silly accessories, and make modifications to your face or anyone else you can find pictures of. Add a pair of sunglasses and a scar, then get ready to share with your friends online.

Snapchat (Android|iOS)

The chances are that you already know Snapchat, but perhaps you are not aware of all of its face altering abilities. You can add filters before recording a video or taking a picture, than add objects and play with Snapchat Lenses to create an expressive image to share over the social networks.

YouCam Makeup (Android|iOS)

Just need a little touch up? Then YouCam Makeup can make you look fabulous for your photos. Add eyeshadow, lashes, lipstick, foundation… any and everything you need to find the ideal look or take the perfect selfie. It’s even better than L’Oreal Makeup Genius (Android|iOS) which we have previously featured.

FaceSwap (iOS)

Next up we have our creepiest pick, FaceSwap. Letting you swap the face of two people live on camera, this app can create some truly terrifying results. Well, I say terrifying, but really we have not stopped laughing since we tried it. You can even use it with photographs.


MSQRD is probably the most entertaining and reliable of our list. This app lets you add a range of amazing masks to your face, all of which react and move with your expression. With this you can become famous people, fictional characters, or iconic creatures. Then just record and share your new look from within the app.

Next week we will be back with 5 apps to record in a full 360 degrees so you can make your own VR photos and videos. Until then, remember to like, share, and subscribe.
