You'll want to play with glitter after this.
While ‘Instagram makeup’ is nice to look at, it’s not really feasible for the average gal to recreate on a daily basis.
These MUAs are challenging the standard Insta-look with colourful, fun makeup that’s all about experimentation. Follow and be inspired.
Pati is a makeup artist for such beauties as Margot Robbie, Priyanka Chopra and Dakota Johnson – and with Margot in particular, she gets subtly adventurous. Take for instance this gorgeous swoop of glitter that’s totally unexpected with the actress’ demure Chanel suit:
Daytime glitter can be a thing! Thank you Pati.

If you love winged eyeliner/eyeshadow looks, you’ll find all the inspiration you’ll need in Leigh. You’ll want to copy her glittery/pastel/neon wings on your next big night out (and with her handy YouTube tutorials, you can).
MUA Katie Jane Hughes is a cult favourite on Instagram for her fearlessness with colour and emphasis on natural-looking, dewy skin. Somehow, it never looks like too much – just fun.
It's #rosaceaawarenessmonth so here's my best Harvey 'Two-Face' Dent impression. I try to talk about my rosacea as much as I can on here and on my blog, mainly to help others but I'm beginning to realise just how much it helps me as well. To anyone who struggles with their appearance – for whatever reason – I think you're bloody brilliant. #talontedlexrosacea
Blogger Lex is well-known for her posts about the skin condition rosacea, and how it affects her relationship with makeup.
She’s a great one for unique details, like gold winged liner on a workday or an unusual lipstick shade just for the hell of it. Also, as you might have guessed from her blog title, she’s got the nicest nails we’ve ever seen. Basically, Lex is an excellent all rounder.
Priscilla is Rihanna’s makeup artist, so you’re going to get all the details on her fabulous makeup looks as well as how she uses Fenty Beauty products on her other clients. She’s fond of a gorgeous glow, as well as cute pops of colour.
This Swedish makeup artist has attracted over 75,000 Instagram followers for her artful looks – and while we love her for cute flourishes like the dots over her eyes, she’s just as good at doing a simple, pared back face.
So excited for @circlevfest today! If you're going, make sure to come say hi to all of us at the @katvondbeauty booth!

Tara is a member of Kat Von D’s Artistry Collective, meaning her job is to basically have the craic with makeup. The dream! Her style could be described as ‘edgy glam’ – follow her and you’ll have the inside scoop on all the KVD Beauty releases, too.
The Estée Lauder beauty director’s Instagram is a) gorgeous to look at (she usually focuses on one colour for a period of time) and b) packed full of makeup inspo. This ocean blue smokey eye! Fabulous.
Celine’s shorn head and perfect skin are a great canvas for her experimental makeup looks – she’s tried everything from 60s-style eyes to screaming orange lipstick, and she’ll make you want to try it all too.
You really can’t praise Pat McGrath enough – she’s made up just about every model and celebrity going, set beauty trends, broken them, and created some of the most stunning looks in history. Plus, her tutorial videos are mesmerising.
