Step 2: Place Added Image

Use the arrow icon to enlarge the image. Using your finger (or stylus), position the image until it is where you want it (in this case it should cover the entire lower portion of the subject’s face). Tap on the Normal text to view your blending mode options.

Step 3: Change Blending Mode

Next, select a blending mode that you like from the right bottom corner of the app. In this case, we’ve chosen to lighten it to make the glitter look more natural (… if that’s possible). Tap on the paintbrush icon.

Step 4: Erase Added Image

Use your finger or stylus to erase the portions of the image that will not be part of the beard. If you erase too much, you can switch the setting to Brush by tapping on the paintbrush icon, so that you can reapply the erased portions. When you are satisfied, tap on the check mark.

Step 3: Reduce Opacity

Use the slider to lower the opacity of the glitter image so that it appears more natural on your subject’s beard. When you are satisfied, tap on the check mark to complete the action. Save your image to your device by tapping on the Save icon.
