Snapchat's Valentine's Day Lenses Will Have You Feeling Rose-Colored All Day Long
Valentine's Day is almost here, folks! While it may be customary to show your love with flowers, chocolates, or cheesy paper cards from your local drug store, there's nothing wrong with sending your love and affection to someone digitally (it's 2019, after all). This year, Snapchat is making it easy to say happy Valentine's Day with a set of brand-new lenses created just for the romantic occasion. Snapchat's Valentine's Day lenses will have you feeling sweet and rosy all day long and will have the recipient of your love swooning for days.
This year, you can choose from seven V-Day lenses to send to your Snapchat friends. If you want to go for "sweet and innocent," use the Angel Lens. Not only will the lens give you a soft, dewy glow, but it'll also surround your head with little golden and pink hearts and tie everything together with golden angel wings. For those who are more chocolate-inclined, the Chocolate Heart Lens puts classic heart-shaped boxes of chocolate in the background of your snap and even adds a cute pair of circular glasses for a "sexy librarian" look. Snapchat's Heart Lens, which is my personal favorite, puts an all-red filter on your photos with some red hearts floating upward for a truly romantic look. If you like the floaty hearts but not the all-red filter, the Red Heart Lens may be a better fit.
But don't take my word for it, check out some of Snapchat's new filters yourself.
Snapchat even has a Valentine's Day-themed puppy filter, which is way more pink and sparkly than the original but will still make you look cute AF.
New lenses aren't the only V-Day gift from Snapchat to Snapchat users. The social media app is launching three new lenses for Snap Camera, the company's standalone app that brings Snapchat to desktop. The Snap Camera lenses include an interactive candy heart-themed lens with messages like, "ur a big mood," "gorgeous," and "bestie," an emoji heart burst that surrounds your face with several colorful hearts and emojis, and a Valentine's Day heart crown made of classic red roses. All the new Snap Camera and smart phone lenses are already getting me in the mood, TBH.
When you're taking a break from snapping your bae, best friend, or mom (which is what I'll be doing), you can also enjoy Snapchat's cupid-themed Snap Map for the day. Though Snapchat hasn't shared what the map will look like this year, last year's Snap Map was super pink and lovey-dovey, with trees in the shape of hearts and candy hearts floating around. You can also enjoy Valentine's and Galentine’s Day-themed stories on Snapchat Discover. And for those of you who crave some V-Day drama, check out the Season 3 premiere of the Snap Original show Second Chance, a drama where exes reunite for the first time after their breakups.
So whether you're sending snaps to friends or partners or just posting selfies of yourself in V-Day spirit, Snapchat will be the perfect addition to your Valentine's Day plans. Happy snapping!
