Not only is Instagram a fun way to photo document what you’re having for lunch, your beach vacay, or to get a sneak peek into your favorite celebrity’s day-to-day, but it’s also a great source of inspiration for makeup. There are SO many talented men and women on Instagram sharing their work that it’s pretty hard to not be inspired.

2. Loreleicakes

3. TheMuaAlex

This uber talented St. Louis native living in Atlanta performs some SERIOUS plastic surgery on her clients. No, not actual plastic surgery, but one look through her famous before and after pictures and you’ll see exactly what we mean. Alex’s talents have been featured on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.

Sir John is an internationally known makeup artist, and 9 times out of 10, you’ve seen his remarkable work in glossies like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar UK, and Vanity Fair; and ad campaigns for designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Etro, and Givenchy—just to name a few. We’re huge fans of his clean, gorgeous makeup style.

6. romerojennings

You’ll totally want to follow along as this MAC senior artist posts the behind the scenes from his travels around the world, and spends downtime with his family. (If you thought Romero was fab, wait until you get a hold of his Ruby Woo-wearing mother.)

7. msdanti


Get ready for fierce brows, cut creases, bold lips, and TONS of natural hair from this MAC freelance makeup artist. Msdanti is so fly it makes you want to block her, but then you won’t because you want ALL her beauty tips.

This Atlanta beauty is the talent behind some of our favorite makeup looks from celebs like Lala, Kelly Rowland, Trina, and many, many more.

9. sonjdradeluxe


Seriously, get ready to be blown away by this Canadian makeup artist’s skills. And she’s a total knockout beauty AND super sweet, too. We keep trying to perfect our arch game every time she uploads a new photo to her timeline.


When we found out this super artist is only 19, we darn near passed out. Ariel sure knows his way around a brush set! His page is filled with makeup recreations which are most of the time hotter than the originals.
