Instagram is such an important social networking service for any business – even more so if the business is beauty focused. It’s a visual platform that allows you to grow and develop your client base through followers. Below are some of our favourite accounts, whether they be MUAs, makeup enthusiasts, body artists or anything else weird and wonderful in the beauty world.
This account’s main purpose is to find and showcase makeup dupes, usually high end vs high street. Love and NEED that new Kat Von D matte lip shade but can’t afford it? Don’t worry – @dupethat will find you the exact same shade at Wet n Wild for more than half the price.
As well as finding amazing dupes, this account also provides videos, pictures, swatches and opinions of the hottest, latest makeup products making your job of deciding whether or not to break the bank this month an easier one (even though – let’s be honest – we know you will anyway).

Regular clients of Vanngo’s include Selena Gomez, Rose Byrne and Emily Ratajkowski. If you are an aspiring MUA, Vanngo is surely one to follow for makeup inspo.
Although technically art and not makeup, Alexa Meade is an amazingly talented and creative artist. She uses people and 3D surfaces as her canvas but uses real paints to make them appear 2D.
