Sugar Skull Mask

Snapchat Lenses

Inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead, this face lens transformed users into a sugar skull. 

Before developing this face lens, we sourced its 3D pearls and designed its other scene elements in Photoshop. We then imported these materials into Lens Studio to build the final effect.

In Lens Studio, we used face tracking to map the rose crown, 3D pearls, and spiderweb mask onto the user’s face. We then modified the user’s eyes with an eye color effect that made them mutant green. In keeping with the mask's haunting theme, we retouched the user’s skin and added a makeup script to apply dramatic black eyeshadow and lipstick. To complete the lens, we added a dark red tint to the entire scene for an eerie, sinister experience.
