THE grinning smile filter on TikTok is equal parts funny and creepy for the users and viewers alike.
TikTok is known for its video effects, editing features, and filters – here’s how to use this one.
What is the grinning filter on TikTok?
Though it’s popular now, the grinning filter on TikTok has been around since the summer of 2020.
It gained the attention of users in the spring of 2022 because of the way it so easily manipulates one’s facial expression.
For those unfamiliar with the humorous charm this particular TikTok filter brings, it adds a set of widely smiling teeth over your closed mouth.
Since the smile totally overlays your natural lips, it creates the illusion that you’re a lot more excited than you might actually be at the moment.
Some popular videos on TikTok show users turning on the filter for unsuspecting friends and family members.
They appear shocked to see the grinning reflection looking back at them when they’re not actively smiling themselves.
Is it easy to get the grinning filter on TikTok?
Once you’re logged in to your TikTok account, all you have to do is tap the + button in the center of the bottom panel.
Once your camera screen opens, you’ll need to tap the “effects” button located next to the “record” button.
