A filter called ‘Dazzling Look’ is going viral on TikTok, with some saying it shows what you would look like as a Cullen vampire from the Twilight franchise.

Short-form video app TikTok has become well known for its filters and effects over the past few years, with a huge selection of different effects that people can use to make their videos more interesting.

Often, certain filters will start picking up a large amount of traction on the platform, and users don’t hesitate when it comes to creating interesting new trends.

The ‘Dazzling Look’ filter pretty much does what it says on the tin, making everything on the screen look sharper and slightly more colorful. And this effect has been going viral for a very specific reason.
