Social media occupies much of our daily lives. Many of us are always on Facebook and Twitter. Instagram is a fun way to know what’s up with our friends. There are even people who are completely reliant on social media.
A lot of consumer brands use Instagram as a platform to market their products. Sometimes the message they impart is too good to be true.
Be wary of people who use social media as a form of cyber-bullying. Because it’s online, the space that allows anyone to intimidate others is wide open.
Beyond that, Instagram is also a great source of fashion and beauty tips. Whether you’re in a beauty rut or just plain curious, there are countless accounts worth stalking for information on trends.
It’s a convenient way to people-watch; admiring your favorite international or local celebrity has never been easier.
With millions of views on Michelle Phan’s YouTube videos, it’s not surprising that her Instagram has over 1.4 million followers. She is always amusing; she even has suggestions on how to take the perfect selfie. Her updates are fun, light and informative.
Lisa Eldridge writes the educational beauty blog www.lisaeldridge.com that has a huge following for her tips and instructions. She knows almost all the answers to every beauty concern. I love stalking her Instagram account for quick updates on her current beauty obsessions.
With Pat McGrath, international makeup artist for brands like Covergirl, Max Factor and Dolce & Gabbana Makeup, you’ll never run out of makeup pegs if you track her updates. Her look is always glamorous, sometimes eccentric, but always beautiful.
I personally love MAC, and really, who doesn’t? Their collections and colors are so rich and gorgeous, we just can’t get enough of them. MAC constantly releases limited-edition collections, and it’s hard to keep up. Tracking its latest updates on Instagram is an effortless way to be in the know.
If you’re a Nars fan, this is a great account to follow. The account is updated constantly; it’s nice to indulge in some eye candy every so often. Nars’ features include its range of products (the matte Multiple is drool-worthy) as well as backstage sneak peeks. You will find this account a light and easy treat.
The woman behind this account has great style and a wardrobe to die for. But that’s basically all we know of her. Apart from recently giving birth, she remains nameless and faceless—much to the captivation of her followers.
Author of the popular blog The Blonde Salad, Chiara Ferragni’s Instagram account is a concise version of her website. Her behind-the-scene shots are fascinating.
Based in Los Angeles, Aimee Song also maintains the sophisticated fashion and interior blog www.songofstyle.com. Her great fashion and beauty style makes her a favorite for many.
Yvan Rodic’s profile says he’s a photographer, author, blogger, cultural explorer and branded entertainment maker. His photos are always so diverse and interesting, you can’t help but look forward to his next post.
There are countless Instagram accounts to follow, whether local and international, for their takes on fashion and beauty.
You can like an account, unfollow it if you grow weary, and you also have the option to block it. Whichever way, it’s all at the tip of your fingertips.
