From the puppy face to Face Swap, Snapchat's new lenses are one of the most popular features on the app with a range of lenses and filters to choose from. From everyday people, to celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, and many more Snapchat users all across the globe are experimenting with the new lenses on Snapchat.
Using the filters, you can transform the way you look and add special effects to your snaps. These special effects track the location of your head and respond to facial movements like the opening of your mouth or raising of your eyebrows. The lenses are replaced with new ones daily, but are available to purchase to keep your favorite.
Here in Red Lion Area Senior High School, students are all about Snapchat.
“I never use my actual camera, it’s always Snapchat,” said junior Ashton Shoup. “Face Swap is my favorite.”
“You gotta get the good lighting, tilt the head, camera facing toward you. It might take a few times to get it right,” added Shoup.
“If I could change anything I would change up the filters, I feel like we have the same ones all the time,” said Paige Gartland.
To jazz up your snaps first open Snapchat and then use the front-facing camera on your device to put yourself in the frame. It works best when your head is mostly straight to the camera and in direct light. Tap and hold your face for a second and a menu option will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap again and quick white lines should appear lined up with your face, then you’re ready to explore a variety of bizarre lenses.
