About Facetune 2

What is Facetune 2?

Facetune 2 is a portrait photo editor designed to help users retouch their selfies for social media. With a built-in editor, users can retouch photos of themselves, everything from blemish removal to changing the shape of their nose.

 

Only available for iOS devices, Facetune 2 is rated for users ages four years of age and older, is free to download, and features additional in-app purchases.

 

Users should know that Facetune 2, while being advertised as a free app, is actually a pay-to-play app with a mandatory subscription purchase to use.

 

Users can opt to take advantage of a 7-day free trial, but after that, they must pay a subscription fee of $5.99 per month, $35.99 for a year, or a one-time purchase of $69.99. Simply put, Facetune2 is a pricey app for photo-retouching.

 

Per the developer: 

“What if we told you that from now on, every single selfie you take will look amazing? With Facetune 2, that’s totally the case. Get the perfect selfie every time!”

 

Users should know that Facetune 2 is the improved version of the original Facetune app made famous by celebrities and Instagram personalities. Facetune gives users the ability to make Photoshop-type edits, but without the fancy software or computer -- they can do it right on their iPhone.

 

Here’s what Facetune 2 can do, with just a few taps of the screen:

  • Whiten your teeth
  • Widen your eyes and your smile
  • plump
  • Edit & change eye color
  • Add eye details & reflections for sparkling eyes
  • Remove redeye
  • Swipe over blemishes, pimples or wrinkles to remove instantly
  • Smooth out skin for a flawless, porcelain look
  • Airbrush pictures for glowing skin
  • Minimize pores and get rid of blackheads
  • Easily enlarge or minimize features: make features skinnier or wider
  • Change the light source for perfect lighting 

However, Facetune 2 does have some fun photo editing features that don’t have to do with altering one’s physical appearance:

  • Magically replace backgrounds
  • Get artistic with a unique prism effect
  • Fun, creative and colorful light effects

 

And Facetune 2 features live editing features that apply effects while a user takes a photo, rather than having to use after the photo has been taken, such as the ability to tweak physical features, smooth skin, whiten teeth, as well as live filters that add realistic makeup effects.

Is Facetune 2 safe for my kids?

It’s also important to note that the Facetune 2 app encourages users to alter their appearances to create “perfect” selfies, which are, of course, posted online and shared on social media, which can be damaging to teens struggling with self-esteem or overly concerned about appearance. This app is safe for kids, but parents may want to supervise use.

In fact, many outlets have published articles about the effects the Facetune app is having on body image, specifically concerning the celebrities who are purported to use the app to create unrealistic (read: super thin) bodily proportions in their photos.

It’s important to note that Facetune developers have openly stated that the app was not intended for body manipulation (strange, since that’s precisely what it does), despite it being used to do just that.

The fact that it’s being done, and being used by celebrities and influential people in social media, to create unrealistic body proportions makes Facetune 2 an app parents want to watch closely with their young teens.

While Facetune 2 doesn’t have any overt features that aren’t safe for children, parents should use caution in allowing their children to use the app, especially if esteem issues are present. And then there’s the fact that the app is pricey, especially just to make sure one has the “perfect” selfie for social media.
