How to Apply Cosmetics in HP Wizards Unite – Stickers & Lens Use

To apply cosmetics in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, such as stickers, lenses (such as the Specterspecs), and so on, you have to apply them to your Ministry ID portrait. Aka, the photo of yourself or whatever other photo you might be using for the purpose. You can’t use the stickers and lenses until you take that photo. Now, the system is a bit wonky, as I’ve implied in the opening. Every time you get a new cosmetic, you kinda have to re-apply everything. Fortunately, you don’t have to take a new photo all the time, as some players believe.

Instead, you can use the Last Portrait tab, which lets you use the last photo you took. That simplifies things somewhat, doesn’t it? However, that doesn’t save you from having to put all the other cosmetics you’ve been using back onto the portrait, but oh well. It’s a price you have to pay to show off your house pride, or something along those lines. Niantic might change the system around, if enough players complain. Until then, this is how things are.

So, that’s how to apply cosmetics, aka stickers and lenses, in Harry Potter Wizards Unite. In case you’ve been having headaches with something else in the game, do take a glance at our other Wizards Unite guides. To name just two, we’ve got Runestones – How They Work & Where to Find Them and Treasure Trunks – How to Open Treasure Chests.
