The latest trend to take off on TikTok involves a filter that gives the face a sunset glow.

TikTokers have racked up millions of views testing out new additions to the app, either from TikTok itself or third-party creators.

While at first, the 'sunset lamp' trend deceiving suggests users need one of the viral lamps to take part. Instead, it's simply a filter.

The original, titled 'Sunset Filter', appears to be removed from the popular video platform. Still, there have since been similar alternatives added to achieve the same effect: 'Sunset Lamp O', 'Sunset' and 'Sunset Lamp by Rylee'.

All people need to do is save one of the filters to their 'Favourites' and follow the instructions:

  • While recording, zoom in on the eye using the selfie camera
  • Close your eye and stop recording
  • Simply select 'Effects' and head over to your 'Favourites' folder. Here, you'll find the previously saved Sunset filters
  • Now, use your main camera with a flash on while recording your eye
