Whether you're taking a selfie on a sunny afternoon or a picture of your iced coffee after it's been freshly brewed, one thing is clear: You need a few cute Instagram story filters to capture the moment right. Sure, the filters built into the stories part of the app could balance out the colors and highlights in your photo. But, nothing will make your moment quite as dreamy as these effects that were created by people specifically for a #cutetime in your life.
They'll turn your surroundings a lovely shade of pink, or put flowers in a mug you have sitting on your kitchen table.

If you're not sure when exactly to use them, think about the moments that already give you a pair of heart eyes. Snaps of you and your SO cuddling on the couch, having a picnic in a park, or walking your dog around your neighborhood are incredibly worthy of these effects' iridescent glows.
