Facetune Video, meanwhile, is focused on creating a photorealistic video by offering a set of features similar to those found in Lightricks’ flagship app, Facetune. That means users are able to retouch their face with tools for skin smoothing, teeth whitening, and face reshaping, plus eye color, makeup, conceal, glow, and matte features.© Lightricks Facetune Video lets you add makeup and whiten your teeth in videos.
The makers of the photo editing app Facetune have launched a version that's focused solely on retouching faces in videos.
Facetune's parent company Lightricks launched the standalone Facetune Video app on Tuesday. It primarily helps you beautify portrait-style footage to share on your Instagram Story or on Snapchat.
The app includes tools that let you digitally adjust your facial features so you can make your eyes wider or lips fuller on a single frame, and AI applies the edits to a moving video.
It works similarly to the regular Facetune photo app. Just upload a video from your camera roll, and reshape your eyes, eyebrows, nose or facial structure to your liking using a built-in slider. Slide left to make features smaller or thinner; slide right to spread them out.

You can also dust the brightness of the video, add filters or smooth out your complexion. Save a copy to your smartphone and you can upload it directly to social media platforms.

It's a new frontier for mobile retouching apps, which have traditionally allowed you only to enhance your face on still photos. Meanwhile, apps like Snapchat come with baked-in video filters that are mostly for fun and noticeably airbrushed and unrealistic.
The new app comes at a time when people are spending more time editing their posts for social media.

Since the start of the pandemic, Lightricks has reported an 11% increase in downloads, as well as a 16% spike in daily usage. People have increasingly used photo editing apps to touch up their hair and skin since many hair and beauty salons temporarily closed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
FaceTune Video is free on iOS and it's coming to Google Play soon. There are, however, in-app upgrades that start at $7.99 for one month, or you can pay $23.99 for a yearlong subscription. The company also offers a $69.99 top-tier version for lifetime access.
