The Instagram Accounts To Stalk For Not-So-Basic Makeup Inspo

When everyday makeup gets too, well, everyday, here are the Instagram accounts that will reignite your creativity when it comes to makeup.

With most of us spending the bulk of our waking time on repetitive scrolling through our Instagram feeds, let’s face it – the endless slew of images can get repetitive sometimes. If you’re anything like us, we’d very much prefer to surround ourselves with content that is inspiring. And being the beauty fiends that we are, we’d also like to be surrounded by refreshing beauty content. So, here are the cool makeup accounts that we’ll be frequently stalking. You’re welcome.

1. @iseecaroline

This Norway-based photographer cum makeup artist posts daily eye looks that are intricate and mostly peppered with tiny flowers that make the eyes look like beautiful bouquets of flowers. They’re also of a myriad of different colours – be it warm tones, cool tones or eclectic pops of colours. Time to time, she also shares recipes to sweet treats like cookies on her Instagram stories – just another reason for you to tap on that “follow” button.

Продолжаю тему драгоценностей 💎💎💎 Я очень люблю камни. И драги и гальку, если ровная. Камни живые, это абсолютно точно. А ещё есть кристаллы. Для меня это тоже камни, только прозрачные 😂🙈. А ещё – положи передо мной рядышком качественный страз и бриллиант – я не отличу… А вы отличите на глаз крутой страз от брюлика? А какой камень вам нравится? ___ Использовала: Клей DUO 💪 Стразы от @glitterforart и @paris_nail_cafe 💎 __ #липарт #марусянарисует #губыотмаруси #лучшиедрузьядевушекэтобриллианты #креативныйвизажистпб #crazymakeup #crazylips #crazymakeups #kreativemakeup #kreativelips #featuring_muas #featuremuas #featuringmua @lipstutorial @makeupartists.worldwide

Her lips truly do not lie – about how talented this Russian makeup artist is. There’s something so satisfying about trawling through photo after photo of three-dimensional lip art. From bejewelled lips to mermaid lips, she’ll have you inspired to recreate a few looks in your own time. So the next time that you’re looking for a bold lip look, take a leaf out of Savina’s book – a vibrant red lip might not cut it anymore.

A post shared by Ana Takahashi (@anatakonyourface) on

The account belongs to Ana Takahashi, a talented 20-year-old face painter who’s pictured above. Takahashi might be a beauty school dropout, but her talent speaks for itself. She has since amassed a great following of 36.6k followers on her Instagram account where she reinterprets anything – from famous art pieces to her favourite piece from Alexander McQueen’s A/W’16 collection – in the form of intricate face paintings.
