Instagram has quickly become one of the most popular and most used social media networks, utilizing our love of all things photographed. And, just like every other social media site, Instagram has a bunch of beauty-based accounts that show off work, as well as offer tips and advice, to help beauty mavens (both professional and amateur) develop their skills and become the best they can at their talents.
Below are the three best makeup-based Instagram accounts. Yes, just three. There are several makeup accounts to choose from- some being makeup artists, some being makeup fans, and others being magazines or cosmetics companies. So yes, it was a challenge to narrow it down to just three. And yes, others would certainly disagree with this list. But these accounts have shown that their love of makeup and beauty reaches far. They focus on the art of makeup, and they appreciate the work that goes into it.
- First off is Lisa Houghton. Lisa is a famous makeup artist, having worked on a variety of celebrities and models, and having worked for magazines and TV work as well. Her Instagram account focuses almost completely on makeup looks. There are lots of very modern photos, including uber-cool magazine editorial shots, and she also shares info regarding her fave products. In the beauty world, most professionals are very hush-hush when it comes to sharing their knowledge and wisdom, so it's refreshing and wonderful to see an artist of Houghton's stature willing to share and open up about her work and secrets.
- Hairandnailfashion is next. And while the word "makeup" is not in the name of the account, it is most definitely one of the focal points. This is an all around beauty and fashion account, and they do a great job with it. Here you will find cool fashion trends, hairstyle ideas and tips, artistic nail designs, and lots of fresh makeup concepts. It's just simply one of the best Instagram accounts out there for the beauty lover, as well as the fashion lover. We've yet to be disappointed by any of their posts. Everything is fresh and new, fashion-forward, fun, and do-able. There's a reason more than 1.5 million people follow this account, and it's all good.
- Finally, we come to Wakeupandmakeup. With 200,000 followers, this account focuses almost entirely on makeup, including makeup looks, tips, and notices of product deals happening online and in national stores. They post quite often, and the looks they post include the work of a variety of artists, both professional and amateur.
If you have an Instagram account, and you enjoy makeup and beauty, you should certainly be following these three accounts. You will not be disappointed.
