Maras is an Instagram filter that superimposes line drawings onto the user’s face when the selfie camera is activated. The filter comprises five line sketches overlaid on the user’s face when the camera is directed towards it. Tapping on the screen toggles between the different sketches while opening the mouth causes the drawing to enlarge. A blur filter makes the user’s face appear smoother. Maras filter’s is built by Charlotte Rea in Facebook’s Spark AR.

The filter succeeded tremendously, ranking at the top of Instagram’s Effects gallery under the selfies category and garnering millions of uses. Users from all over the country created artworks in tribute to the filter, including makeup and illustration.
