This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at U Conn chapter.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am fully obsessed with anything that has to do with make up, hair, beauty products, fashion, celebrities, designers… the list goes on. When I say “anything” related, I 100% mean it. Instagram accounts, YouTube tutorials, Pinterest boards, 700 Sephora BeautyInsider points … I even follow celebrity makeup artists and hair stylists on Snapchat just to see which Kardashian they are glamming for the day. Not kidding, I’m obsessed.

I will lose sleep watching make up and hair tutorials. I also just gave in to the $2.99/month subscription fee for Kim Kardashian’s app so I expect this will take up most of my time now.

My Instagram followers vs. following ratio has definitely taken a hit with all of the accounts I follow and I will admit, this is something I’m actually proud of. We all love checking up on our friends and favorite celebrities on Instagram, but there is so much more to see! Social media is the perfect platform to keep tabs on the best makeup artists, hairstylists, fashion moguls and beauty brands.

Ari is a self admitted fashion-aholic with an insatiable appetite for handbags and beauty products - not necessarily in that order.  When she is not bingeing on Netflix, daydreaming about Louboutins or scouring the Internet for "up to the minute" entertainment news, she can be found at the nearby Sephora offering advice on the latest and greatest must-haves - and NO - she does not work there.
