Besides blogs, Instagram is one of my favorite sources of makeup tips, products, and inspiration. From celebrity makeup artists to self taught artists that jump started their career through social media, there’s probably one out there that suits your personal beauty style. And not all accounts are created equal. Look for the ones that interact with their followers, answering questions in the comment section, and give insight on the looks they create by listing products or sharing technique.
Below I’ve listed 10 of my favorite makeup Instagram accounts. Who are some of your favorites?
If your looking to nail the J.Lo glow, Desi Perkins is your girl (not to mention she could be her twin!).
Tania is great at really tailoring a unique look to her client, instead of pumping out one cookie cuter look. I sat in on a live makeup class she did with model Jessica Burciaga, bought 2 of the products she used and love them both. For only $10 it was well worth it and I’m hoping she does more!
Angel Merino does such a good highlight, he developed his own line of highlighting powders, called Artist Couture that look beautiful on everyone.
Christina Milian, Paris Hilton, and Casie are just a few of the celebrities he works his magic on. He’s in high demand, but will still share some of his favorite products on his page.
Lilit does a bold take on classic looks that are beautiful. I participated in one of her online tutorials and was amazed at her attention to detail. After watching her in action, I learned so much and was inspired to try her smokey cat eye (I’m still working on it, btw).
Not only does she post photos with product details, but she also posts great short tutorial videos from contouring, lips, eye makeup and hair!
