Geek Chic: Instagram
As human beings we are visual creatures. We love anything that is appealing to the eye and Instagram is the perfect example of a social media platform where you can get all this and more!
Accounts are created for personal and professional use and when done right, are curated into beautiful visual diaries for the world to see (if they aren't set to private!).
Below are 10 Instagram (beauty and non-beauty related) accounts that I love to follow and explore.
If you want to know when the latest beauty products are being released, view makeup swatches or get inside news TRENDMOOD is the account to follow! They are hot on the heels of new products and share the release dates and stockists as they get it!
Chrisspy is the bomb.com and I am not just saying that because she regrammed my photo last week (but seriously she did and I am still dying! Check it out here). She is my fave beauty YouTuber and if you don't have time to watch her latest videos you can get your daily dose of Chrisspy inspo on her Instagram page. Follow her and lose yourself in a sea of pastel hair, glam makeup looks and adventures with her beauty vlog squad.
LISA MESSENGER (@lisamessenger)
As a long time fan and reader of The Collective magazine I love following Founder and Editor in Chief, Lisa Messenger. From pics of her travels to wise words and quotes, this account is a daily source of inspiration and motivates me to work, work, work, work, work.
PABLO MORGADE MACHADO (@pabsartist)
Meet Pablo, M.A.C Pro Sydney makeup artist and king of face charts! The colour, detail and dimension he includes in his makeup face charts is pure perfection. My only regret is that I didn't discover his account when I first started my makeup course, it definitely would have served as a source of inspiration and pushed me to think outside the square!
CRYSTAL COONS (@sometimesglam)
What started as an email love affair has now blossomed into a beautiful friendship! But that isn't the only reason I love following Crystal on the Gram! As a plus size blogger she shares the latest fashion and trends that inspire me to experiment with styles and colours that are foreign to my all black wardrobe! She is based in Phoenix so I love discovering new indie designers and U.S brands through her account and seeing her slay on her amazing adventures.
THE BLACKLINE BY LAUREN (@theblacklinebylauren)
If you are a fan of calligraphy and beautifully handwritten designs, look no further than the IG account of The Blackline by Lauren. You can admire it from IG or deck out your home or office with her sophisticated script! Plus she has now started conducting workshops you can take part in to create your own type masterpieces too!
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVEL (@natgeotravel)
Anyone who knows me knows I live to travel! So when I am not travelling I am hustling to save for my next trip and there is always a plan in action! The National Geographic Travel IG account uncovers places you never knew existed and is a beautiful gallery of destinations you will be quickly adding to your bucket list.
I SCREAM NAILS (@iscreamnails)
From superheroes to skulls and everything in between, the artists at I Scream Nails are some of the best in the biz! I have had the opportunity to get a mani at their studio in Newtown (Sydney) a few times and have always consulted their IG page for nail art inspo before my appointment. Warning - you will be addicted to this gallery of unique creations and perfectly painted talons!
KHLOE KARDASHIAN (@khloekardashian)
I would be lying if I said I didn't watch KUWTK religiously. Khloe is and always will be my fave K so it's no surprise I am constantly checking her out on IG to keep up with her fabulous life! Not only do I love her sense of style but her feed is an inside into her latest hair and makeup looks, the products she swears by and her 'revenge body' transformation (don't pretend like you aren't curious too)!
Because... NikkieTutorials! You will never get anything less than perfection from the the girl that slays the game! Want a little glam? Done. Drag Queen drama? Check! There is nothing she won't try and I am keeping a close eye on her feed to catch a glimpse of her Too Faced Cosmetics collab due to be released this Fall!
