The Best Make-Up And Hair Artist Instagram Accounts To Follow For Beauty Inspiration

By the time you see the latest make-up trends in a magazine, they will have already been Instagrammed, tweeted and shared a dozen times. Why not get the jump on the hottest looks for summer by following the make-up artists themselves?

A mixture of high profile and budding artists who wield a smartphone as well as a foundation brush, this list showcases some amazing beauty inspiration...

Who? Former ballet dancer and make-up artist for Topshop

Who? Box studied to be an installation artist and this carries over into her work as a make-up artist. It may not quite work for a night out in Croydon, but we love dreaming about pulling this off one day.
