13 Makeup Artists to Stalk on Instagram

If you want some beauty inspiration in your life, all you have to do is open up your Instagram—that is, if you're following the right people. We've rounded up some of our favorite makeup artists, all of whom give us non-stop beauty overload. Trust us when we say our Insta-feeds are looking much prettier these days.

Gucci Westman, @gucciwestman

She's the Global Artistic Director for Revlon, so you can thank her for all those awesome lipstick colors you have. She's also married to David Neville, designer for Rag & Bone. We admit—we're totally jealous of her closet and makeup cabinet.

Pat McGrath, @patmcgrathreal


We would not dare to delve into the beauty world without mentioning Pat McGrath. You can find her jetsetting between fashion weeks both home and abroad, and at Vogue cover shoots with Steven Meisel. Next time you pick up anything Covergirl or Dolce & Gabbana (just to name a few), know that she's the creative genius behind it.

Tom Pecheux, @tompecheux


His Instagram images shows him beautifying the Giseles and Caras of the world—he takes that natural Parisian beauty to the next level. While he is the Creative Makeup Director of Estée Lauder, you'll often find his presence behind the scenes at big fashion shows, shoots, and campaigns (he's a staple at Chanel). 

Wendy Rowe, @wendyrowe


Across the pond, Wendy Rowe is marching British It-girls around London in to-die-for trenches and that classic Burberry beauty look: natural, glowing and gorgeous. Screw the sunshine! If we can look like that in the London fog for the rest of our lives, sign us up!

Charlotte Tilbury, @ctilburymakeup


Another Brit who's totally killing it is Charlotte Tilbury, master of the feline flick and sexy, golden Ibiza glow. With the rocker chic makeup look trending these days, we're definitely taking pointers from her. There's a reason why her beauty collection is being used by basically every celebrity under the sun.

Lisa Eldridge, @lisaeldridgemakeup


She was recently named Lancôme's new Makeup Creative Director as of January 2015 (congrats!), but don't let that fool you. Her list of celebrity clients, fashion shows, ad campaigns and collaborations is so long we'd be listing names for days. Get it girl!

Val Garland, @thevalgarland


 

A tad busy...

If you see an Instagram with the hashtag #validate (so punny), you know the product she's using has the official stamp of approval. She's one of MAC's favorite makeup artists and has worked on countless Vogue covers. Also, how cute is she with those glasses?

Hung Vanngo, @hungvanngo


Any woman who sits in his makeup chair comes out looking like a goddess. The Global Ambassador for Ck One Color Cosmetics has the golden touch—now, where do we sign up for a one-on-one session with him?

Lottie Stannard, @lotstar

Bouncing back and forth between NYC and LA, and not to mention to all those fashion shows, Lottie has tons and tons of experience under her belt. Besides fashion editorials and shoots, she also does celebrity makeup—does Taylor Swift ring a bell?

Beau Nelson, @beau_nelson


 

@chrissyteigen and I.

He's worked his magic with iconic ladies like Iman to celebrities like Kristen Stewart. One look at his Instagram, and you know you'll have beauty inspiration for your next outing with the girls or your upcoming formal event.

Joyce Bonelli, @joycebonelli

You might have seen this pretty lady on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and you should definitely follow her for Kardashian beauty overload. We've got to say, she and the Kardashian Klan are a match made in beauty heaven.

Sonia & Fyza Ali, @soniaxfyza


Sonia and Fyza are a dynamic sister duo taking over London! Sonia is the one in all the pictures, and Fyza was actually trained by Kim Kardashian's makeup artists—did you do a double take when you saw the picture? We love their Instagram for beauty reviews, tutorials, and because Fyza specializes in Middle Eastern skin. Can you say, "Gorgeous!"

Sir John, @sjblife


 

#AllStar face last nite for my #AllStar girl.

We only need to say this once: He does Beyoncé's makeup. 

Collegiettes, which makeup artists do you follow on Instagram?
