    You’ve seen makeup artist Pati Dubroff’s work on red carpets, via women like Kate Bosworth, Drew Barrymore, and Gwyneth Paltrow, and in magazines like Vogue, W, and Allure. With a roster like that it’s no wonder her #tbts are the most fun.

  • @atkinjen

    When hairstylist Jen Atkin isn’t riding camels in Dubai or working out of the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood, she’s building voluminous waves on the best-tressed women in Hollywood, including the Kardashians—and those are photos you want to see!

  • @caradelevingne

    Following everyone’s favorite model on Instagram will fill your day with joy—we promise. She might be tiny, but the bold-browed Brit’s full of personality. If you miss the days of the supermodel, meet Cara.

  • @sbvogue
    6 of 30

    Vogue’s beauty director has embraced social media from a perfectly Vogue perspective. Elegant shots of sweet bouquets, the newest products, and New York’s fanciest beauty events abound.

  • @narsissist

    Nars’ official Instagram account is like your number-one beauty-loving friend. During Fashion Week it’s full of behind-the-scenes images and the rest of the year, it swatches colors on different skin tones, spills new product secrets, and breaks the latest collaboration news.

    You know Joey from The Rachel Zoe Project, where he serves as makeup artist, hairstylist, and confidante. We promise his witty captions and colorful pictures are just as fun.

  • @dotwillow

    Supermodel Daria Werbowy’s feed might be the most selfie-free of all her peers. Instead, the face of Celine documents her international adventures and shares gorgeous inspirational photos.

  • @gucciwestman
    12 of 30

    Makeup artist Gucci Westman is the Global Artistic Director of Revlon, a regular in the pages of Vogue, and married to one-half of rag & bone. If there are better ingredients for a beautiful Instagram feed, we don’t know what they are.

  • @orlopita
    13 of 30

    There might not be a hairstylist who takes his work as seriously as Orlando Pita. The legendary artist regularly posts photos of over-the-top hair from editorials and runways past and present. If you’re looking for high-fashion hair, look no further.

  • @sephora
    14 of 30

    There’s no place like Sephora for a beauty junkie—if they don’t have what you’re looking for, it’s probably not available stateside. Their Instagram account shows off their exclusive brand collaborations and inspiring editorials.

  • @laurenandersen
    15 of 30

    Based off Instagram alone, we’d vote Lauren Andersen the makeup artist we’d most like to hang out with. The glamorous redhead works her magic on friends like Jessica Alba and Nicole Richie.

  • @patmcgrathreal
    16 of 30

    When she’s not whipping up outrageously beautiful looks at the haute couture shows or developing new products for CoverGirl, McGrath—perhaps the most famous makeup artist alive—offers a steady stream of consistently inspirational work on her Instagram feed.

  • @wahnails
    17 of 30

    Sharmadean Reid was at the forefront of nail art’s most recent comeback, launching WAH Nails in London in 2009. A go-to source of inspiration for wild and colorful nail art.

    The man behind Madonna’s hair has filled his West Hollywood salon with some of LA’s best hairstylists and colorists. You can see all their work in one place thanks to the salon’s official account.

  • @evachen212

    Eva Chen was Teen Vogue’s beauty director before being named Lucky’s Editor-in-Chief last month, making her the ultimate resource for all things beauty. Two things worth noting: Chen considers an 8-step nighttime routine low-maintenance and her shoe collection will blow your mind. 

  • @giseleofficial
    20 of 30

    Ask a hairstylist for “Gisele hair” and they’ll probably roll their eyes—because who doesn’t want Gisele hair?! Maybe you can’t have her locks, but you can look at them on the model’s intimate feed, full of behind-the-scenes shots, baby pictures, and yes, plenty of selfies.

  • @jilliandempsey
    21 of 30

    She might go home to McDreamy, but makeup artist Jillian Dempsey spends her days beautifying women like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, Emily Blunt, and Kristen Stewart.

  • @jennahipp
    22 of 30

    What do Drew Barrymore and Miley Cyrus have in common? Jenna Hipp. The manicurist is Hollywood’s go-to; she also collaborates with NCLA on a variety of nail wraps.

    Follow Blunder on Instagram and you’ll feel like you’re hanging out with her clients—Amanda Seyfried, Bella Heathcote, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—while they prep for major events.

  • @esteelauder
    24 of 30

    The best word to describe Estee Lauder’s Instagram feed is “pretty”—and that’s a huge compliment. Its cheerful pink images of product and peonies offer a constant reminder of why it’s fun to be a girl.

  • @karliekloss
    25 of 30

    Between the runways, the magazines, the MTV hosting gig, the Victoria’s Secret contract, and making cookies for Momofuku Milk Bar, Kloss has plenty to document!

  • @storyofmailife

    Ginnifer Goodwin’s bold eyes, Rose Byrne’s bronzed contours, and Jessica Chastain’s porcelain skin are all the work of makeup artist Mai Quynh. You’ll get a close-up look at her process if you click follow.

    A kaleidoscopic mix of bright products, delicious-looking sweets, and Maybelline’s latest ad images populates the brand’s colorful feed.

  • @ctilburymakeup

    The flame-haired British makeup maestro may have worked on Tom Ford’s cosmetics collection, but this year she launches her own line of products. Our eyes are peeled for a sneak peek, but in the meantime we can’t get enough of her pretty pics.

  • @robscheppy & @joycebonelli
    29 of 30

    If you’ve run out of ways to get your Kardashian fix, meet Rob and Joyce, the hair and makeup gurus behind all things K. From beachy waves to smoky eyes with a whole lot of kissy faces in between, they’re the glam team having the most fun.

    They just started populating their feed two months ago, but we expect great things from L’Oreal’s account, which is already full of throwback images, bright manicures, and behind-the-scenes shots.
