7 celebrity makeup artists you need to follow on Instagram ASAP

We love looking through Insta trying to find the next thing to either try at home or make our friends try. When it comes to makeup, it’s one of the best places to look for inspiration. From the hottest trend of the week to looks for every day, celebrity makeup artists’ pages are the place to go. Not only can you see how your favorite stars get glammed up, but if you are handy with the contour, you can recreate the looks yourself. Let’s check out seven Instagram pages of makeup artists that help your favorite star shine.

Hung Vanngo

If only because he gets his hands on Julianne Moore and we are jealous, Hung deserves your attention. Cindy Crawford and Jodie Comer are also among the huge list of celebs that trust Hung to create flawless looks. We like his page because it offers a lot of visual shots. Sometimes you don’t want to watch tutorials. His page is mostly posts of the celebrities he’s worked with. A few super-fast videos here and there dot the page.

We love that he only posts once a day so you aren’t flooded with content. You’ll mostly see finished faces and not a start to finish, but that’s okay. The looks are gorgeous, the celebrities are our favorites, and the best part is that they could definitely be copied for your everyday look.

Pati Dubroff

We are obsessed with Pati’s page right now. If you love soft, natural, neutral looks, that’s her thing. That fresh-faced look she does has been perfected on our favorites like Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Olsen.

Her page is the right mix of celebrity faces and personal shots.

Pati herself is an absolutely stunning woman, so we love her videos where she tries out new products on herself and lets us know where we can get them.

Mary Greenwell

If our Queen Cate Blanchett always trusts Mary with her look, you can, too. Her page is a little of this and a little of that. We like that it’s not only makeup post after makeup post. It gives it some personality. She also does videos trying new finds and her old beauty favorites. Based in London, we like that we’ll see a little different kind of content. Her personality is fun and her eclectic page gives you plenty of content to get lost in for hours.

Matthew VanLeeuwen

Goddesses Idina Menzel and Ellen Pompeo turn to Matthew VanLeeuwen for their red carpet looks. We like that you’ll find high-end glamour and cute family throwback pictures on his page. We’ll be honest, we spent way too much time getting lost in the depths of his page seeing all of the celebs he’s made up. Go down the rabbit hole of his page and enjoy the beautiful looks.

Vincent’s page is stunning. We love how bright and positive it is. Jurnees Mollett, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Winnie Harlow are just a drop in the bucket of celebrities that have had Vincent work his magic on them. Even though his page is mostly the finished product, it’s gorgeous to look at. We love seeing all of the beautiful looks mixed with a few candid shots of him with his clients.

Why you need to use sunscreen in the winter, too

While summer still feels like it's ages away, you still need to think about protecting your skin from the sun. Even though the days are shorter, you shouldn't be slacking on the SPF.

According to the Skin Cancer Society,  "snow reflects up to 80% of the sun’s UV light" making it even more dangerous than the sunlight you are exposed to in the summer. So if you plan on participating in any winter sports, you need to be even more careful.

Many people have their idea of beauty when comes to hair. Some people prefer facial hair, bushy eyebrows, and thin eyebrows. You are one of the people who prefer not to have the few thick strands of hair on your chin. You might feel a bit uncomfortable seeing a unibrow slowly forming. You tried everything to get rid of your random thick chin hairs and shape your eyebrows. You tried hair removal cream, you tried wax strips, and you even tried an electric razor.
