Make Your First Effect: Glam
Try out a new, glamorous look with Effect House! Use this basic tutorial to familiarize yourself with the tool, basic effects, and the general creation process.
To start, open Effect House and log in with the account you want to use to publish your effect with. Then create a new project in Effect House by clicking Create project. This tutorial does not require imported assets.
Alternatively, you can download this file and open the included Effect House project file to follow along:
Create a Face Effect
First add a Face Mask object by clicking the Add button [+] > Face Effects > Face Mask in the Hierarchy panel. This applies a built-in face mask effect that you can further customize. Feel free to rename the Face Mask object to “Eyes” by right-clicking the object and selecting Rename. Learn more about face mask effects.
Change the region of the Face Mask by going to Face Region in the Inspector panel and selecting Eyes.
The Face Mask Texture is set to the built-in Eye Shadow Texture by default. To change the color of the Face Mask, select the Opacity Enable checkbox, and then choose your desired color from the color selector or enter a hexadecimal color code.
Adjust the Opacity to your liking by using the slider to set a value between 0 and 1, with 0 being transparent and 1 being opaque.
The Blend Mode uses different calculations to determine how to blend color and texture. For example, Multiply multiplies the values of the base color and texture color, whereas Normal uses only the color of the top texture layer. Select your preferred Blend Mode. Learn more about blend modes.
To add lip makeup, simply right-click and Duplicate the Face Mask object you created for eye makeup. Feel free to rename this new object to “Lips.”
Then go to Face Region in the Inspector panel and select Lips. To change the color of the lip makeup, select the Opacity Enable checkbox, and then choose your desired color as before. Adjust the Opacity to your liking and then select your preferred Blend Mode.
Finally, to add eyelash makeup, simply right-click and Duplicate one of the previously-created Face Mask objects. Feel free to rename this new object to “Eyelashes.”
Go to Face Region in the Inspector panel and select Eyelashes. For maximum prominence, adjust the Opacity to 1.
Change Hair Color
To add a different hair color to your effect, add a Hair Segmentation object by clicking the Add button [+] > Segmentation > Hair Segmentation in the Hierarchy panel. Learn more about segmentation.
Select the newly created Hair Color object in the Hierarchy panel.
Then go to the Inspector panel and change the Opacity, Color, and Blend Mode to your liking. For best results, keep the Blend Mode set to Soft Light.
Congratulations! You’ve just created a Glam effect.
