In the clips, Selena tries on various filters and addresses the issue of the app commonly changing one’s eye color to blue for all the “pretty” filters.

“Literally every single Snapchat filter has the blue eyes,” she says. “But also like, what if you have brown eyes? … Am I supposed to have these eyes to like, look good?”

While trying out filters that enlarge various facial features, Selena remarks, “They should have more filters like this … oh great, and it’s the only one that uses my brown eyes. Look at this. And again, they use my brown eyes for this one. I don’t understand.”

She adds, “They have all the blue eyes for all the ones that are like really pretty. … Why? … I think I’m gonna stick to the ‘Gram. Brown eyes are beautiful, everyone.”

    “Brown Eyed Girl”

    – Behind Blue Eyes; Green Eyed Lady

    I knew a girl whose boyfriend said her eyes were the color of sht. I was sitting in the back seat and she was talking about his blue eyes and blue eyes in general how she thought she looked better with blue lenses on, and that her brown eyes were boring and bland “not like yours, blue eyes in general, they’re beautiful.” and he goes ” Yeah not like the color of sht.” and you could tell that hurt her.

    I think women with brown eyes are treated different than women with colored eyes. We should do an experiement. Color the eyes of women with blue eyes into brown and see what the reactions would be and visa versa with woman with brown eyes into blue.

    I’ve heard so many people say that to others and themselves. I’m glad selena mentioned it. Maybe someone will make a small change.

    Yeah the lenses industry certainly get a lot out of the brown eye market. I have never met any people with colored eye who wear brown eye lenses, its always people with brown eyes and thats because everyone whether they want to admit it or not, see colored eyes as significantly more beautiful than brown eyed people.

    Guys dont get it as bad as women though. Like you wouldn notice a bronze, brown or black woman with brown eyes VS a bronze, brown or black woman with light colored eyes. Same with caucasian women.

    Thats just the truth.

    so filters have to be all inclusive now?? lmfao, this world has real problems airhead…

  • jh7058622

    What do you mean inclusive? Blue eyes are the minority. … 60 to 75% of humans have brown eyes while only 8 to 10 have blue. That’s just basic logic and better business to cater to the largest audience available especially when the underrepresented group make up the majority anyway.

    yet she used colored contact lenses in real life.. talk about hypocrisy.

    Many blue eyed people can’t carry the brown eyed look just as many natural blondes can’t carry dark hair. The company has a right to make whatever they want available and their consumers can choose whether or not to use it.
    As for the switching experiment, you may be interested in the experiment started several years ago and made popular by Jane Elliot.
