Snapchat’s design changes introduced earlier this year were so annoying that the company had to redesign its app to fix some of the annoyances. Whether you love or hate the new Snapchat design, the app has tons of cool filters, geofilters, and lenses that have made people fall in love with Snapchat. Let’s take a look at the ten best Snapchat filters. But before that, you should know that the company changes its selection of lenses, filters, and geofilters daily to bring some variation.
Best Snapchat filters
In Snapchat, filters are the effects that users apply on their snap after taking a video or photo. Lenses are something that you can apply in real-time while taking a photo. You can turn yourself into a cat, a goddess, and other things. Snapchat filters have become so popular that Instagram has copied the feature from Snapchat.
You can apply the filters (or lenses as Snapchat calls them) by tapping and holding on your face using the front or rear camera. Now you’ll see all the available lenses along the bottom of your phone’s screen. Just tap on them to try them out. Each filter has its own instruction, don’t ignore them. Some may require you to raise your eyebrows while others suggest that you open your mouth before applying the filter. Enough of this. Now let’s check out the ten best Snapchat filters:
10. The flower crown
It is one of the most basic Snapchat filters out there. It makes your skin look amazingly flawless while adding a little shimmer in your eyes. You can also share this filter with your best friends.
9. Puppy with tongue hanging out
The infamous filter that is behind tons of memes on the Internet. Its beauty lies in its simplicity and that hanging tongue. It has got some cute puppy ears and faces. If you are with your friend in the frame, the app will also apply the filter to their faces. It could also be your way of showing appreciation for dogs.
8. The rainbow vomit
Want to puke rainbows? Apply this filter to your photos. It is one of the best Snapchat filters because it takes the AR game to a new level. You can switch to the front camera to be greeted by some really cool clouds vomiting rainbows just like you.
7. Face swap
Have you ever imagined what it would look like if you swapped faces with your bestie or your spouse? Use the face swap filter to see it in real. Sometimes it looks horrifying, but it’s mostly funny and cool.
6. Food face
Are you a big foodie who wants to become food for a while just for fun? This Snapchat filter has got you covered. Turn your face into an orange slice, a waffle, a strawberry, or pineapple by applying this filter.
5. Warp your face
One of the best ways to take goofy selfies with someone who is equally goofy. The face warp filter twists and turns your face in weird ways that are really funny.
4. Scruffy beard filter
It is one of the best Snapchat filters, but it’s not that fun if you already have a lot of facial hair. People without facial hair will have a lot of fun trying it out.
3. Animated liftoff
Imagine your face with a rocket ready to lift off. Make sure that your facial expressions exude the sense of despair and panic. The animated liftoff filter will give you a virtual blastoff without having to buy a ticket to the outer space or Mars.
2. Extreme sad face filter
Some of us are pretty good at letting their friends know what they are feeling (I’m not one of them). If you are a programmer chained to your desk even though you want to go outside and enjoy the evening, or you are a student who just received a not-so-good grade in exams, you can turn to this filter to express your true feelings.
1. Pretty filter
This, we believe, is one of the coolest and best Snapchat filters. It doesn’t warp your face or make you vomit rainbows. It makes you look as pretty as it possibly can by smoothing out your face and removing any dark spots or blemishes.
