What Is The Face Builder Effect?

If you are on TikTok and have encountered videos where inanimate objects have eyes and a mouth, you might be wondering, "how did someone give that inanimate object eyes and a mouth?".

The answer is that they used the Face Builder Effect. Face Builder literally builds a face (well, eyes and mouth at least) on pretty much any object you want. The effect came to prominence due to something called the "I am Lost" Challenge and has remained popular ever since.
