5 Makeup Artists To Start Following Right This Second

5 Makeup Artists To Start Following Right This Second

The world has its fair share of marvelously talented makeup folks, but some of them are more noteworthy than others. Therefore, I wanted to take a moment to highlight five of my favorite makeup artists. 

Here we go!

1. Karuna Chani

I actually used to work for a communications firm that counted Karuna Chani's KC-Makeup as a client and while I was only in direct contact with her for a few months, it was more than enough time to be able to see that she is PASSIONATE about her work. And, perhaps just as important, she is damn good at what she does.

Here is a recent snap from her Instagram that may give you a glimpse at her primping prowess.

2. Nadia Sadeli

Not only is Nadia a stellar makeup artist, she is also the Creative Director of Flair Makeup. She is a big fan of airbrushing makeup (duh) and frequently dishes up application tips and tricks on her Instagram.  Oh and her abilities are off-the-charts. See?

3. Nicola Siân

Nicola has been working in the beauty realm for over a decade and her experience is evident in every single look that she creates. From fanciful editorials to "everyday" makeup magic, Nicola know exactly what she is doing.

4. Lisa Eldridge

Lisa Eldridge is clearly obsessed with all things cosmetic; she even wrote a book exploring the history of makeup. She is also a genius when it comes to crafting stunning makeup looks. Here is just one example that I snatched from her Instagram.

5. Cedric Lanappe

Cedric Lanappe's work speaks for itself. His brilliance at utilizing bright color in a strategic and striking way make him a standout, as does his distinctive style. Plus, we adore the way he plays with textures and sparkle (à la this).

That's it for now, but feel free to come chime in with your thoughts on Instagram or Twitter
