The year started with a lot of challenges, well not that kind, but the new social media trend where everyone jumps on the same activity with the same hashtag. After the #BussItChallenge, everyone on social media was looking for the next challenge to hop on. The next challenge flooding our timelines is now the #SilhouetteChallenge.
But what is the Silhouette Challenge? How do you do it and what song are people using?
What is the Silhouette Challenge?
Basically, the Silhouette Challenge sees users pose seductively in a doorway before quickly turning into a completely black silhouette against a red background. It’s not known who first started the trend, but it’s taking social media by storm.
How do you use the Vin Rouge filter?
Want to know how to get that red background? Well, you’re going to need to head over to Snapchat and find the Vin Rouge filter on there.
The Vin Rouge filter is a camera effect that turns your whole screen red, leaving your silhouette black. It makes it look like your whole room has been lit up by red studio lights.
To find the Vin Rouge filter, open Snapchat and hit the camera screen, then click on the smiley face to the right-hand side of the camera button to browse filters.
Then, press ‘explore’ next to the browse feature and type ‘vin rouge’. Et voila! Time to get filming. Make sure you’re wearing form-fitting clothes to really emphasise your silhouette for the second half of the video.
For the challenge, you’ll need one video of yourself standing in a doorway which ends in the same body position you start with in the second video, the one using the Vin Rouge filter. It’s all about the seamless transition.
What song is used for the Silhouette Challenge?
The Silhouette Challenge starts with ‘Put Your Head On My Shoulder’ by Paul Anka, which transitions into ‘Streets’ by Doja Cat.
