Selfie Filter (IG):
90sthetic by @demiandrou
This selfie filter is one of my all-time personal favourites, and I have been using it since its creation in August 2020. It gives a lovely pastel purple-pink colour layering with a few sparkly shines scattered throughout your phone screen, which is well thought-out. Many celebrities and influencers have used this filter in particular, from Kylie Jenner (@kyliejenner) to musicians like Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) and Olivia Rodrigo (@oliviarodrigo). Another filter that I think not only is trendy but also perfectly fits the season it is accompanying (autumn):
now 2.0 by @filipearantes
Now 2.0 adds a particular light brown tone cover, which is perfect for this season, but when you tap on the screen, it shows the day of the week and time, which is a pretty cute addition for a minimalistic filter. Around 1.3 million people have used this filter so far on just their reels. Again, with the autumn-themed filters, if you need something both lighter in colour, this selfie filter is for you:
Pink fall by @debeemama
Pink fall, as the name suggests, is lighter in tone, but it has a more rustic dust combination, which is really fitting for a sunny but chilly autumn day. While in comparison it is one of the lesser popular ones on this list but it definitely has the potential to be saved by many people.
Moody fall by @dewarajendra
If you need a much darker in shade, then Moody fall is for you. Compared to the previous colour palette, this one is more golden-brown, which goes well with a coffee pic. Just like the last one I mentioned, this one is not as monstrous as the first 2 filters mentioned, but this one was used in reel commercials, one of them being (@averyandhome).
Tezza by @ekrurila
Lastly, if you need a filter with different shades, the Tezza filter is 10 in one. From muted mocha palette to my favourite palette, mood, this one covers more ground in shades. Although Tezza is also a separate app run by an influencer, Tezza Barton, this one just has the essence of what the Tezza app is capable of. Since the app overshadows the filter, it still garnered 7K+ usage on Instagram reels.
Useful techniques to combine with your selfie filter:
Instagram has gone through multiple transformations ever since its creation so it is no surprise that some mechanics and techniques have changed over the years, the most recent being the 60-second-long video recording without any cuts. So, what strategies can be used this season with all the filters and rebranding? Since autumn is a little more sombre in tone, Thanks to some of the materials and filters, it perfectly encapsulates the beginning of autumn and gives a cosy atmosphere to your photos or any environment that fits within the season.

The season-related holidays like Halloween and thanksgiving are mostly associated with things like a pumpkin and other festive treats.
