Makeup is a great way to express yourself, but sometimes inspiration can run dry. For those of us who like to keep things fresh and fun, it can be difficult having to constantly conjure up new ideas for makeup looks. Luckily, one of the wonderful perks of social media is masses of beauty content that we can connect with and draw inspiration from. If you’re finding yourself wondering who the best girls of the moment are to keep up to date with, then we’ve got the perfect guide for you. Here are some of the best Instagram girls to follow are, so that you’re up to speed with all the goings on in the beauty world...
Jenna Ortega (@JennaOrtega)
A young ‘it girl’ that is really making her mark in Hollywood is Jenna Ortega. Jenna has starred in several big hit movies and TV series, but not only has her rise been on the film scene, she is also making moves in the realm of beauty. Recently starring in Netflix’s Addam’s family reboot, Wednesday, has seen her embrace more edgy and gothic style makeup that really packs a punch. Not only does Jenna love to accentuate her eyes, but she also loves a classic red lip, so she’s always sporting a chic look no matter what angle she takes. Her Instagram takes us behind the scenes of her life, involving her looks for film projects, awards shows, and photoshoots, giving us insight into the life of a young rising star. Miss Jenna Ortega is certainly one to watch for those of us in need of some beauty inspo!
Lila Moss (@LilaMoss)
It’s no surprise that Kate Moss’ daughter, Lila, is taking the beauty world by storm. Her doll-like features and flawless skin provide the perfect canvas for a myriad of different looks. Whether she’s stepping out for coffee with her celebrity friends and keeping things natural, walking in a designer runway show, covering vogue in an avant-garde look, or creating candid polaroid shots, her makeup is always on point. She emphasizes her big eyes and long lashes in many of her looks, consistently making them the ‘wow’ aspect of her makeup. She’s a total must-follow, and aside from radiating cool in every look, it is fascinating to get an insight into what the day-to-day life of a supermodel heiress looks like.
Simran Randhawa (@Simran)
An Instagram page that always leaves me feeling fascinated and inspired is that of Simran Randhawa. Simran is a fashion and beauty influencer based in London, and her social media gives us a look inside the life of a cool girl in a big city. Simran has fun with her beauty looks, incorporating bright colours and elegant wings, as well as frequently integrating inspiration from her Indian heritage to create makeup looks that showcase an intertwinement of eastern and western beauty. This unique take makes Randhawa a standout creator and a one-of-a-kind influence on the beauty industry. She should be at the top of every beauty fanatic’s following list!
Maddie Ziegler (@MaddieZiegler)
Not only is Maddie Ziegler a dance superstar and reality TV icon, but she also brings some fresh and fabulous beauty inspiration to the table. Since her Dance Moms stint, the 20-year-old has stepped into the realm of fashion and beauty, bringing with her a young, playful approach. Ziegler tends to show of her glowing skin with minimal foundation, gloss her lips a little, and lets her eyes do the talking. Her Morphe collab has shown us that she loves to experiment with bright colors, whether that be a mono pink shadow, or blending different shades of blue, or taking wild purples and oranges to create a somehow effortlessly harmonious look. Subtle hints of shimmer also keep things light and pretty, balancing off the daredevil in her looks. Maddie Ziegler is a definite makeup princess to add to your following list this year.
