Every night, I sit in my bed next to my husband with our two golden retriever fur children usually carefully snuggled up so I have about 140 lbs. of love and 102.5 degrees of heat around me. Recently, we’ve been binge-watching A&E’s 48 Hours, but when it’s on commercial break, I am scrolling through my Instagram for… I dunno… forever?
I follow and love content from hundreds of fellow makeup junkies – pro artists, other beauty bloggers, brands, influencers and some local related-businesses. But the following 10 ladies consistently inspire me and are my favorite beauty Instagram accounts lately…
Sabrina, author/blogger at The Beauty Look Book, does my favorite beauty product photography – hands down. They’re always crystal clear, true-to-color and have just enough props to keep things interesting.
Lilly, from Daily Craving, is a local Houston fashion blogger that I met a little over a year ago during a Charlotte Tilbury event. She has two young boys who are the most fashionable young men I’ve seen (without being too ‘grown up’) and I love her effortless style.
I can’t even with this entire look from Emily’s Instagram, @EmilyAnnGemma (blogger at The Sweetest Thing). She’s a super gorgeous fashion/beauty blogger who currently resides in Oklahoma and has the cutest golden doodle. I love following her on SnapChat, too. Her clothing recommendations have been multiple-time winners for me and she equally recommends excellent makeup products for those of us with oily/acne prone skin (she often talks/writes about her struggles).
Chelsie is a fellow beauty/style blogger I met from my favorite blogger Facebook group – Blog Passion Project. She’s been an amazing resource for me, personally, and I love how honest she is with her personal life/struggles. I like her account because it’s what I call “real girl beauty.”
Nicole from LipstickandBrunch.com is also a local Houston blogger with the most colorful style I have ever seen! She pulls it off so well and is always bouncing around town at the latest Houston fashion and beauty events. We’re both Latina doggie moms who can spend excessive amounts of time in Sephora and probably do extensive credit card damage…
I love Beti from makeup-sessions.com because we have nearly the exact same skin tone and taste in makeup shades. Sign me up for all the things neutral, nude, peachy, bronzy and tan!
If you’re not following G from NouveauCheap and you like makeup, what are you doing with yourself!? She is full of coupon codes, sales, deals, new drugstore beauty launches and occasional amazing dupe suggestions.
Paula from ThirteenThoughts.com is another amazing beauty blogger who kills it on Instagram. So much white-washed prettiness on her feed! She and I also share similar skin woes and get very excited over the newest beauty launches from the fancy brands.
Rose is another Houston gal. Her profile is full of super creative, perfectly blended makeup looks. Yes, they’re obviously touched up a bit, but I think she does it just enough without looking completely plastic. Many of her looks are more beauty photography/editorial anyway and I love it. She loves singing/music, makeup and also makes these adorable bow turbans.
Sarah is a lawyer by day, beauty blogger by night (sarahlovesmakeup.com). She just recently graduated law school in D.C. and is originally from New York (yay, my northeast ladies)! I first started following her a little over a year ago because of our mutual obsession with all things Charlotte Tilbury and Glossier.
I hope I introduced you to at least a couple of new faces for your Instagram feed. Let me know who some of your favorite beauty accounts are in the comments! I’m always checking the “explore” tab to find new accounts to follow.
