Insta Inspo: These Crazy Talented Makeup Artists Are Raising the Bar

Take a look at their unique IG feeds – each one is serving face for days in interesting ways.

Sometimes, Instagram can feel like a tug-of-war for your attention, dancing in between thirst traps, stolen memes and inhumanely tropical trips to somewhere far warmer than your own home. However, (in my humble opinion), art is almost always the answer, and luckily there is no shortage of purely original images to take the edge off as you tune in to some of the authentic expression happening in the IG world.

Feel free to grab some inspiration from these talented artists whose canvases are largely their own lovely faces. Get some goosebumps going with these three inspiring creators.

@vesperucca AKA Juliana Horner

A thousand times yes. Juliana Horner’s style is like female David Bowie if he did all of his own styling and makeup (and general publicity if you count this as her own distribution channel). Her designs, makeup or multimedia art all have incredible detail and a whimsical feel that will remind you that the little things can bring the biggest smiles. Her captions (or lack thereof) are always the icing on the cake to her dope creations. Cheers to this cheeky rebel.


@sweetmutuals is the quintessential fresh-faced fantasy gal. Her feed is an eclectic collection of looks that all center around solely the canvas of her own beautiful face. While her art generally focuses on paint, plenty of color and different textures, she tends to also bring a 3D aspect that make her designs even more unique. Take a look.

@esantoinette AKA Antoinette Mahr

You guys. This girl serves face with the most intricate detail for days. Antoinette Mahr’s feed is a refreshing composition of color, design and truly masterful technique. Despite the fact that each look has multiple layers of depth and even emotion, her natural beauty shines through in a unique way. Here are some of our faves…

I’ve been thinking of doing something inspired by Composition VIII (swipe) by Kandinsky for a minure but I didn’t really plan it out and rushed through it. I like her though hehe ???? What are some new products you guys are looking to try out? I really want to try the new @patmcgrathreal mascara! And I’m on the hunt for more earrings because I have a sick addiction – @claropsyche psyche’s box @suvabeauty #hydraliner | grease + space panda @kryolanofficial #aquacolor @essence_cosmetics shine shine shine clear gloss @theboldfacemakeup lashes | thrill seeker – #avantgarde #composition8 #myartistcommunity #theartistedit #modelmalay #wassilykandinsky #kryolan #suvabeauty

Get yourself some paint brushes (taklon) and graphic eyeliner will be easier than ever, y’all. Well with water-activated and creme products. As much as I love my other “fancy” brushes, the ones I buy from craft stores are still my go-tos for looks like these. Plus, it’s an affordable alternative if you’re just starting to play around with make-up ✨ sn: will my frizzy hair ever be defeated ??? find out in the next episode – @revolutionpro mischief mattes palette @suvabeauty #hydraliner | scrunchie (base for pink) @kryolanofficial #aquacolor for liner | 511 & blue 3 or 5 (it doesn’t say on my pan) @rouge.and.rogue lashes | lady killer @fentybeauty gloss bomb | fu$$y •other details are in my previous post song: sza – normal girl (with some edits) – #graphicliner #graphiceyeliner #kryolan #aquacolor #myartistcommunity #modelmalay #theartistedit #fentybeauty #rougeandrogue #suvabeauty #makeuprevolution #tutorial #IGUESS
