How to Use Emojis Like You’re Insta-Famous

We’ve all been there: you have the perfect picture to post on Instagram, but have no earthly idea what to caption it. Or, your caption is cute, but needs a little something extra. In these moments, we all turn to our favorite keyboard: emojis. With thousands of options, it can get a little overwhelming, but let’s face it—some of those little icons are just cooler than others. Take a cue from your favorite Instagram personalities to step-up your emoji game.

It’s in Bella Hadid’s Instagram bio. Plus, it seems that basically ever other model uses the butterfly when they don’t have a good caption. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me.

For reasons I am not really sure of, the starry-eyed emoji is just so much cooler than the heart-eyes emoji. It’s just true. Use it in a string of emojis if you are really excited about something.

The coolest of all the heart emojis, obviously. Pairs perfectly with your all-black outfit from Thursday night, or when you want to post a cute picture but do not want to be too sappy.

Sometimes you just have to draw even more attention to the fact that you were wearing your favorite lipstick in that photo.

Still can’t decide what emoji to use? Me neither. When in doubt, no caption is still an option.
