What Is The FaceApp Challenge?
Another week, another viral challenge, or so it seems. This time, it’s the FaceApp challenge. FaceApp is actually one that’s been around for some time. It applies features to faces found in photos, making people look younger, like the opposite gender, and other options. However, the newest update came with a brand new filter: one for old age!
Furthermore, the results of the new filter look incredible. So, posting altered pics quickly became a viral craze. Many around the world are participating, especially celebrities. As Hollywood sanctifies youth, it’s great to see these famous people who can make fun of themselves with wrinkles.
Now, for some of the best challenges…

In just a few short days, the home renovator posted pictures of both her husband and new baby with the FaceApp filter applied. Then, she posted the photo above, captioning it, “I can’t stop!” It’s easy to see how making anyone look older might quickly become addictive!
