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.

South Korean illusion makeup artist Dain Yoon’s Instagram feed is full of herself and we mean that literally. Her works play on mind-bending optical illusions that will have you seeing double (or triple). It’s not surprising that one would think that her Instagram feed is a by-product of fantastic Photoshop skills. The 24-year-old believes her illusion art mirrors the way people experience the world because to her, “people live in illusions; people see everything in their own subjective way.” Since she uses her body as a blank canvas, you won’t just be getting makeup inspo here. There’s a bunch of intriguing nail art too.

v93oo isn’t just another Instagram account that posts outrageous beauty looks. It’s also a community where like-minded beauty creatives are highlighted and celebrated. Plus, it’s a great place to discover cool looks that you would otherwise never have thought of pulling off. And if you – like us – are sick and tired of seeing the same perfect, glamorous looks on your feed time and again, trust us when we say that this account will break through the monotony of that. In fact, it stands for the opposite of that. Mushtaq, who’s the brains behind this account, means for it to be a pro-anti-perfect space where people can escape to and be free of the ideal that makeup has to perfect. Here, no rules apply when it comes to makeup. It’s all about creativity and discovery.
