Have Fun With Instagram Face Filters

Instagram face filters are super fun! Of course, everyone loves messing around with them. Whether you use them to make your photos stand out, make your followers laugh or to pass time at work, face filters are the perfect feature!

How To Use Instagram Face Filters

Before we highlight our favorite Instagram face filters, we’ll show you how to use them. It’s very easy!

First, open the Instagram app and access your Instagram stories.

Turn the camera around so you can see your face and click the face icon in the bottom right.

From there, the app will open up a row of face filters from you to choose from! Choose the one you want and snap a selfie.

Tip: If you want to take a Boomerang or a video, choose that option before selecting your face filter.

Our Favorite Instagram Face Filters

Instagram is always coming out with new face filters but we’re going to share some favorites of the moment!

Love Letters

With it being Valentine season, there are few romantic Instagram face filters. The Love Letters filter is super fun because it works as a selfie or by turning the camera around.

Animal Face Filters

Animal disguises are super popular Instagram face filters.

Instagram has a puppy, a kitten, a bunny, and also a bulldog.

Bunny Instagram Face Filter

These filters come with an effect that makes it look like your eyes are bigger, or maybe you’re wearing eyeliner! Of course, you need puppy dog eyes if you’re going to convince anyone!

Photo Effect Instagram Filters

Some of the Instagram face filters are in fact more subtle. In fact, they don’t change your features but act more like a photo filter.

Chromatic Pulse gives your photos a grainy VCR look, with the glitching colors over the black and white filter.

Instagram Face Filters

Iridescent Glitter adds colorful glitter to your photo. Again, this works as a selfie or not! Pretty cool.

Light Leak is one of our favorites! It looks like a little bit of sunshine has filtered through your photograph, like a vintage camera! It certainly makes for a cool photo effect.

Interactive Filters

Some Instagram face filters require you to do stuff that makes it work! For example, the Sunglasses filter requires you tilt your head back to change the glasses.

The Mouth Face Instagram Face Filter will certainly make your followers laugh! Of course, it’s extra silly because when you open your mouth, it enlarges it to take up the whole screen if you want!

Funny Face Filters

Of course, Instagram face filters were invented to add fun to your Instagram experience. What would they be if there weren’t a few funny ones in the mix?

The Infinite Zoom one is definitely funny! Simply open your mouth and you appear inside your mouth, inside your mouth, inside your mouth. Okay, you get the point!

One that will always stir up a laugh is the Face Melt Instagram face filter. When you open your mouth, your facial features either fall off or float away! Super funny.

Face Falling Off With Instagram Filter
