There’s something about minimal makeup which just feels so very … now. It may be the Glossier influence, or the fact that we’re all getting a little lazier, but the idea of smushing on makeup with fingers in under five minutes is hugely appealing. And, in spite of its full-glam reputation, Instagram is a fantastic place to find minimal makeup inspiration. Here are five of the best accounts to follow, for just that.
ASOS insider and model, Lesley’s beauty account is a feast for the eyes. Her looks are always stunningly natural, although there’s often a fun twist or pop of colour.
The girl just oozes laid-back cool - and do we need to point out how totally stunning she is?
Rio came to our attention with her fantastic beauty column for the Strategist, where she talks K beauty, multimasking and so much more.
Her Instagram is a reflection of this; her looks are always skin focused and natural, although she does often include one fun element, like a lavender eye or bright red lip.
MUA Nam Vo is known for her #namvoglow, and her Instagram page (quite literally) reflects this.
Her looks are always simple, but always highlighted to the high heavens. If you’re looking for skinspiration, this is the account for you.
Erica Fae merges a natural aesthetic with some beautiful pops of colour.
But what stands out is her stunning (and natural looking) skin – always the perfect balance of dewy and matte and super bright and glowing.
If you’re into glowy skin, this is the account for you. Stunning Cecilia always looks impeccably well-moisturised and lit from within. Her makeup is always soft and sheeny, with a minimal, ‘90s vibe.
There’s something dreamy and cherubic about her feed - and it always makes us feel super chill.
