‘Hello my name is Zuzie’: How do I do the latest hyped TikTok trend?

The animal ones are the best


There are a number of dramatically face-changing filters that have popped off on TikTok in 2021, but the “Hello my name is Zuzie” trend is by far the most popular in recent weeks. You’ve likely seen the videos – two floating magnified orbs appear on screen, and the subject of the video moves to fit their eyes into them, enlarging their facial features and making them appear bug-eyed. Yeah, it’s pretty good fun.

But what’s less clear is how you actually achieve the effect – like, what do I have to search to get the “Hello my name is Zuzie” filter? Is the “Hello my name is Zuzie” trend a filter or a sticker? Here’s how to do the trend for yourself.

How do I do the TikTok “hello my name is Zuzie” trend?

So, we’ve established this effect makes you look massively bug-eyed, but how exactly do you do it for yourself? Well, it turns out it’s as simple as placing a couple of stickers onto your video:

 

  • The first surprising step is to film your TikTok video as normal in the app – the magnifying circles are stickers that are applied afterward.

 

  • Tap the tick, then tap “stickers” at the bottom. In the second row on the left you will find an icon showing a picture being magnified in a circle.

 

  • Select the sticker and place it in the correct spot on the video. If more than one is required, repeat the process.

 

And that’s it! Just make sure that you stay still in your video, as the stickers obviously won’t track with your face as they may do in a proper filter. Take a look at some of the best examples for inspiration:
