The Best Beauty and Makeup Instagram Accounts to Follow

Have you ever spent hours just surfing around instagram just looking at different stuff.  I know have, I have to be honest with you for a second.  Instagram is my little guilty pleasure, I can watch makeup or hair videos for hours on end.  Just last week I sat on the couch in my comfy sweats for a few hours swiping around on instagram 😀  But luckily all of my wasted hours on instagram has paid off, I have rounded up all of the best instagram accounts for makeup and hair to fill up your feed with MUA, hair stylists, and the best beauty brands around!!  Hope you like them and if you find more please share them with me in the comments.

Disclaimer: this massive list was collected from several resources around the web like Cosmopolitan, huffinton post, and many more.

The Best Makeup Artists to Follow on Instagram

1. Pat McGrath:

She’s literally applied makeup to every single celebrity and model you’ve ever cared about in life. Not to mention, this P&G global creative design director’s Instagram is one of the most vibrant things you’ll ever see, thanks to her genius mind and glittery makeup line.

2. Charlotte Tilbury:

Cara Delevingne, Emily Ratajkowski, Sienna Miller, and Jourdan Dunn are among some of her clients. Tilbury also has an eponymous incredible makeup line that will give you the skin/eyes/lips/contour of your dreams.

3. Joyce Bonelli:

This makeup artist keeps up with the Kardashians like no other — she also has adorable new twins that she posts pictures of who are impossibly cute too!

4. Hung Vanngo:

His makeup brushes touch the faces of Selena Gomez, the VS girls, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Bosworth, to name a few.

5. Patrick Ta:

He counts Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba, Shay Mitchell, and Camila Alves as some of his closest clients.

6. Michael Anthony:

Models Jasmine Sanders, Herieth Paul, and HoYeon Jung, and celebs like Rita Ora, Allison Williams, Katy Perry, and Victoria Justice have him on speed dial. But what’ll really blow your mind about Manthony (his nickname) is the way he paints faces and dreams up makeup concepts. ✨

7. Violette:

Chances are you’ll catch her creating editorial masterpieces over dolling up celebs, but regardless of who she’s making up, you can bet they’ll have the most unique look around. Not only is Violette a genius when it comes to coming up with interesting makeup looks, she’s obsessed with glitter just like you.

8. Mylah Morales:

She gets Rihanna glam on a regular basis. Enough said.

9. Robin Black:

You’ll never find her in an Insta photo because she’s also the killer photographer taking the pictures, but be prepared to get some insane makeup inspiration from this artist’s feed.

10. Sir John:

This L’Orèal makeup artist’s roster includes Beyoncé, Serena Williams, Soo Joo Park, Joan Smalls, Khloé Kardashian, and more, and just might be the nicest (and most humble) human on earth.

12. Mario Dedivanovic:

You know him and love him — he’s Kim Kardashian’s main man and is king of the #MasterClass.

13. Mary Phillips:

She gives J.Lo that glow — plus, Britney Spears, Chrissy Teigen, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Hannah Davis, and a slew of other celebs turn to Mary to get red-carpet ready.

15. Val Garland:

She’s a master at makeup and behind some of the most iconic beauty looks that have ever walked the runway, landed on magazine pages, and graced the faces of models and celebs alike in campaigns. She’s also the calmest woman you’ll talk to backstage, IMO. She too is obsessed with glitter.
