My 5 Favourite Instagram MUA'S

When I started out with makeup, I was 14 and thought that Dream Matte Mousse from Maybelline was the be all and end all of my life. I also had winged eyeliner that went up to my eyebrows and wore bright red lipstick. I was, for lack of a better term, a mess.

I do like to think that I've evolved though… And it’s all down to the people I follow on Instagram. Back in uni, I would religiously watch make-up tutorials on Youtube and practice them at like 3 am after a night of drinking. Since then, my life has been a lot busier, and finding the time to watch full-length videos is hard. Now, I follow a range of make-up artists on Instagram, who I check up on every now and then to see their techniques or opinions on new and exciting makeup and eyeshadow palettes.

When I get the time, I’ll be looking to take a makeup course – finding new ways to apply make-up and create ~lewks~ is actually really therapeutic for me! In the meantime however, I'll be stalking insta-stars for inspiration, here are my top 5:


Nicola has some amazing looks over on the Pixiwoo Youtube channel. However, I love having a quick check of her insta feed for her views on the latest products such as face masks, lipsticks and more.


Jeffree offers some great tutorials for make-up (his eye makeup is always beautiful) and he samples a lot of his videos on his Instagram. This is also where he previews some of his latest vegan beauty products.


Not only has Huda worked with the stars, but her insta feed is filled with tutorials from influencers found all over Instagram! I’ve found so many tutorials from her feed that I had to include her in this post. She’s an inspiration and you should definitely follow her!


I actually found Thuy Lee from Huda’s feed, and I’m so glad I did! Not only is Thuy Lee funny, she has some of the best and wacky make-up tips going.


Nikkie may look photoshopped, but she isn’t! She’s stunning and talented and has some of the best tutorials out there at the moment. Her feed has glimpses of make-up tips as well as pictures of the finished looks that she creates.

Who are your favourite Instagrammers out there at the moment?
