The Best Makeup Artists to Follow on Instagram

Makeup is my life! I cannot get enough of the latest Chanel collections, and makeup techniques. I change my look, not with the new fashion trends, but with different makeup looks that come out each season, whether that means buying new eye shadow palettes, lipstick colors, or contour, blush, and highlighting looks. If that does not cover my love for makeup, than my Instagram quote will: “Life Is Short, Wear Lipstick!” With that being said, I felt that it was only natural for me to introduce the best makeup artists and beauty bloggers to follow on Instagram!

1. Mario Dedivanovic @makeupbymario

If you are not familiar with Mario, he is most notably known as Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist.  Mario is an extremely talented celebrity makeup artist and one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram because his work is so gorgeous. Mario is also known for his international Master Classes, which sell out in a matter of days! He is having an NYC Master Class with Kim Kardashian on August 19th if you want to learn his secrets for a flawless face.

2. Charlotte Tilbury @ctilburymakeup

Charlotte Tilbury is quickly becoming the queen of beauty with the growth of her signature Charlotte Tilbury cosmetic line. She is the most recent makeup artist that I have been following and I must say her Instagram stories make me want to buy all of her signature looks from the collection, especially "The Rebel Look" because I am obsessed with green eye shadow palettes! If you want to see her beautiful work, follow her ASAP!

3. Kristofer Buckle @kristoferbuckle

Kristofer Buckle is the first makeup artist that I followed on Instagram! He is most recently known from the E! Documentary "Mariah’s World," since he is Mariah Carey’s makeup artist. He also works with celebrities like Faith Hill, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Chastain, Blake Lively, Kelly Ripa, and many others. His Instagram quote alone should be a reason to follow him: “BIG dreams.. small pores!”

4. Lisa Eldridge @lisaeldridgemakeup

I have been keeping up with Lisa Eldridge since she worked as the makeup artist at Chanel. She is such a talented makeup artist and is known for her beautiful feminine makeup looks. Eldridge currently is the Director of Lancôme Makeup and the author of a New York Times bestselling book. Eldridge recently worked with Kendall Jenner for a magazine photo shoot and her look was nothing short of stunning!

5. Patrick Ta @patrickta

I began following Patrick Ta during the Oscars because he was working as one of the official Chanel makeup artists. His clientele include supermodels like Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Chrissy Teigen, in addition to many others. Ta creates flawless looks that will make you addicted to his Instagram posts!

6. Huda Kattan @hudabeauty

Huda Kattan is the queen of beauty bloggers! Huda is a self-made social media influencer and makeup artist with 18.8 million followers on Instagram. Huda’s career began in finance, until she wanted to pursue her passion in makeup. Today, Huda has hudabeauty, her makeup line that can be found in Sephora and at shophudabeauty. Her influence spans the globe, as she is down to earth and engaging with her followers. Kattan is the ultimate Instagram beauty influencer and is fun to follow! It also doesn’t hurt that she posts beautiful stories that feature gorgeous Dubai!
