Take "Ugly" Selfies With the Lenses That Warp Your Face

Okay, so maybe the flower crown lens is pretty great, and so is that other makeover lens that smooths out your skin, but let's face it—it's not very likely that they are going to make anyone giggle. The warped lenses are where the real fun is at.

Put away your best selfie face and shove all your insecurities aside so that you can fully embrace the lenses that make you look crazy and ugly as opposed to perfect. Use them to make your face twist and distort into something almost unrecognizable before snapping a good one at just the right angle. Bonus points to you if you add a really funny caption with it.

Get Your Pets Involved

Some people get really annoyed if you're pulling your phone out at every moment and trying to capture everything that's going on. Lucky for you, your pet doesn't know what Snapchat is and likely won't care as long as you don't get all up in their faces too much.

You can play around with lenses on your pets by first activating your front-facing camera and holding down your face to bring up the lenses, then switching to your back-facing camera and trying to get the app to recognize your pet's facial features. Lenses are tricky with pets, but it's possible to catch a good one.

Go Nuts With Emojis (And Bitmojis Too)

We're really in the middle of the emoji era right now. Snapchat makes it possible to put any emoji on your snap, giving you the opportunity to combine imagery with even more imagery. You can even resize an emoji by pinching it on the screen with your index finger and thumb and moving both your finger and thumb outward.

Make it rain with the cry-laughing face emoji. Put a giant coffee cup on your head. Give your cat some pink lips. The possibilities are truly endless.

Tip: Snapchat supports Bitmoji integration, so if you and your friends both have your own little Bitmoji chatacter, you can add your Bitmoji as stickers to your snaps. And if yuu're replying to a friend who has their Bitmoji integrated, you'll see stickers with both of your Bitmoji characters having fun together!

Tell a Story in a Series of Snaps

This action would be perfect for posting to your My Story section on Snapchat. As an event unfolds, capture it in a series of snaps while trying to exaggerate what's happening. Even the most mundane things can be turned into comedic gold.

Add captions to describe what's going on and throw in a selfie or two to show your reaction. Everything from walking down the street to brushing your teeth can seem funny when you exaggerate it in a bunch of snaps.

Show Off Your Drawing Skills

Before Snapchat introduced lenses, we all had to resort to the drawing tool to make our snaps a little more creative. This is the tool you'll want to use to unleash your inner art freak.

While it may take a little extra time to choose the correct colors and swipe your finger across the screen in just the right way to fill everything in, you can seriously make some pretty ridiculous masterpieces. Your friends might even question why Disney hasn't hired you yet for their next big film.

Pair an Inspiring Photo With an Awkward Caption

Photos of calming sunsets, sparkling city landscapes, sandy beaches, fluffy white clouds, and lush green forests are all pretty great. But they're even better when you capture them in a snap and add some of the kind of hilarious captions that really interrupt the magic.

Type something sarcastic, exaggerative, awkward, kinda creepy, or totally unrelated to the image. Now that will really inspire your friends.

Face Swap With Random Things

You have to admit that the face swap lens is pretty great. But it's even greater when you do it with random objects that have pictures of people on them or that simply resemble human faces well enough for Snapchat to recognize them.

Try face swapping with the Starbucks lady on your coffee cup, the Spiderman design on your child's T-shirt, or the woman in that painting at the art gallery you're visiting. Everywhere you look, things are waiting to be face swapped!

Snap What You're Watching or Reading

Studying a chapter of your textbook for school? Watching something good on Netflix? Snap it and add your hilarious thoughts on the content with a quirky caption.

You can even enhance the images in your book or on your screen by adding lenses, drawings, or emojis. This is a very creative way to let your friends know what you're up to at the moment.

Face swap is fantastic, but the "Try It With a Friend" lenses are just as fun—especially because they change on a day-to-day basis. These lenses detect two faces and put quirky masks or effects on both.

Get your BFF, your partner, or even your pet (again) involved with it. You can snap a video ​of both of you talking and interacting while your faces are covered by these silly lenses to make it even funnier.

Snap Videos With Moving Emoji

Guess what else you can do with emojis on Snapchat? If you're snapping a video, you can add an emoji, drag it to the spot where you want to put it, and then hold it down to secure it to a moving person, animal, or object in the video.

As the person, animal, or object moves around, the emoji you just attached to it will move around with it. Neat, right? This takes some practice and doesn't always work, but when it does, it looks pretty fun.
