5 Killer Beauty Instagrams to Follow


Freelance manicurist and local babe AstroWifey has all the nail-art inspo a girl could ever need.  I'm always excited to see what work she is going to post next.  The amazing part -> you can book an appointment with her to work her magic on your tips.  Clearly this girl has talent.  Plus, I like to think we have a lot in common (Bears, Bulls, Doorknockers, an affection for small dogs and hip-hop...) but I'm pretty sure I'm not quite as cool.


Into The Gloss' instagram feed is an amazing behind-the-scenes glance into the prominent beauty blog. Be prepared to see a lot of models, celebs, runway shows, and makeup artists in action.  It's like getting the inside scoop before the inside scoop.


Makeup Artist Pat McGrath is a LEGEND in the beauty and fashion worlds.  She has been noted as the most influential makeup artist by Vogue and is responsible for creating some of the most memorable looks seen in print and on runways (Miu Miu, Comme des Garcons, and Prada to name a few).  This instagram is a must-follow.


I may have already professed my love affair with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic's line, but now I can gush about their instagram feed.  Right now you can see all the work they are doing at NYFW, but you can also look forward to seeing sneak peaks of new colors before they are released and BTS snaps of their always edgy campaigns.  


MAC senior artist Keri Blair, whose worked her magic on almost every major face in the industry, has taken her creativity to nail art and is taking fashion week by storm.  Remember those velvet nails we saw at Ruffian F/W '12?  Yup, that was her.  I love the fact that she doesn't limit her artistry.  Keri was the head of Artist Training and Development for my region when I started at M.A.C. and I have had the pleasure of watching her work and learning some great things from her.  It's amazing to keep getting inspired by her!
