When Should You Use Snapchat Lenses? Here Are 7 Times They'll Come In Handy

Are you tired of hearing about Snapchat lenses yet? Well that's just too bad, because if social media is anything to go by, they're here to stay for a long, long time. "But Claire," you might be wondering, "when should I use Snapchat lenses in the first place?" Good news: I have answers. There's a Snapchat lens for every situation, and I'm about to demonstrate seven of them to you.

I don't know about your friend group, but mine has taken to lenses like Nick Jonas did to being one of the dozens of former boy band members who shave their heads to look "edgy."As fun as they may be, though, we've already covered them quite a bit — and then some more, because they're just that flippin' addicting. So what on earth am I doing writing about them again? No, it's not because they brought back the rainbow puke lens, which remains tragically missing. Instead, I'm here today to teach you how to use lenses like a self-appointed pro — even the weird ones.

Some lenses are more useful than others, especially now that rainbow puke is gone, but worry not! There's a situation for every lens, as laid out below. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it's a good place to start, if I may say so myself.

So, without further ado, here's exactly when you should use Snapchat lenses:

1. When You Remember That Time Someone In Middle School Stood You Up

Ugh. If only your preteen self knew that he ended up prematurely bald.

2. When The Hot Barista Smiles At You In The Morning

Immediately send this to everyone you know.

3. When You Realize S/He Was Smiling At The Girl Behind You

So embarrassing. This calls for the teary lens.

4. When You're Describing What This Revelation Felt Like

Wow, Hot Barista. I thought I meant something to you.

5. When You're Practicing Your Evil Laugh

We all do it, although some practice more than others. (Me. I am that person. I practice more than anyone.)

6. When You Realize You're A Silent Movie Star

It explains so much.

7. When You're Annoyed You're Not As Famous As Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner has more than 36 million followers on Instagram, and her app is the most popular of all the Kardashian family's apps. I have 220 Instagram followers and pretended that I was Ferris Bueller in the shower this morning instead of doing anything useful. But you know what makes me feel better? The glamorous magazine cover lens.
