Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending a Make Up For Ever masterclass with the incredibly talented French Touch of Makeup. We were so inspired, we just had to show you what she’s doing!

You may already be aware of her work, but if you’re not, she’s a French freelance Makeup Artist with an Instagram account packed with wicked lip art, inspiring looks and colour swatches from your favourite brands. Along with other MUAs, her Instagram brings us an endless stream of bold and brilliant looks. So, with that in mind, we pulled together our top five Instagram accounts for your weekend makeup inspo. Check this lot out…

French Touch of Makeup


See what we mean? Those colours are enough to make us ditch our usual neutral and black uniform and embrace the rainbow! The dotted eyes and purple feline flick are created using NYX Vivid Bright Eyeliners and we’re just LOVING the range of colours they offer. We think using a bolder colour instead of your usual black liquid liner is the perfect way to update your favourite feline flick.



A professional fashion and celebrity Makeup Artist, who has worked with the likes of Urban Decay, Vogue, Emilia Clarke, Kelly Rowland and Tarte, Lottie’s Instagram was always going to be a huge source of inspiration! Her recent Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette campaign is so cool, it makes us want to give it a go for ourselves.

Frantastic Beauty


Offering a serious stream of killer lip and eye art looks, Fran Aguilera is a Texan makeup junkie with some of the most imaginative lip looks we’ve seen. Using all cruelty free brands, she’s always sure to include the products used in her caption and her black and metallic lip look inventively uses NYX Liquid Eyeliner for a jet black, matte finish. Mwah!



One of the Instagram’s biggest MUA stars, we’re sure you’re all already following Vladamua! Caught up in a social media scandal recently, after calling out Kylie Jenner for ripping off her ideas (go girl!), Vladamua is the bomb! Get her expert lipstick application precision with her Urban Decay angled lipstick brush and experiment with colour for a Vladamua inspired look that shows you mean business.

Girl Grey Beauty


Meet Girl Grey Beauty, a Canadian lipstick queen with a cool 332k Instagram followers. Boasting a popular Youtube channel offering makeup and lip art tutorials, she’s a force to be reckoned with on the Instagram MUA scene. Experiment with her grey NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in ‘Foul Mouth’ and a metallic bronze gold shade to recreate the third lipstick image in the sequence, or wear alone for a bold cold look!
