Originally, Instagram was just another way for me to get band news. Twitter + Insta; best way to know what bands are up to, I find.
Or at least the bands I like. Admittedly, some of them aren’t really on board with this yet. And some of them don’t seem like they quite get it (tip: watch Architects; they know exactly how it’s done).
Lately, Instagram has more or less become an endless source of makeup inspiration. For me, it’s the main source by far. I love lying in bed, early, early in the morning, scrolling through my feed for some inspo.
Let’s have a wee look at my likes:
In addition to all things Architects related (JFC, I don’t even have the sense to hide this), as you can see, mainly makeup looks.
My fave account by far is kelseyannaf. I keep going back to this look:

Absolutely in love with it. Also the main reason I’ve been intentionally ignoring filling out my eyebrows as of late. She makes me fall in love with the no-brow look all over again. (Obvs liked it before, see 90s Twiggy Ramirez, Marilyn Manson + Robin Finck. Mm. Pretty.)
I also like the nyxcosmetics account, not only for looks but because, as you may have gathered, I’m a bit of a NYX fan, so I like to know what’s going on. This is a look I’ve previously mentioned being inspired by, and as you can see, emphasis on the inspired, I couldn’t do anything this clean if I tried.
Another fave is lindahallbergs. She posts looks daily, have to love that, and both looks that can be copied and worn as everyday looks, and more creative looks. Her more creative looks are nothing short of amazing; great example of how there’s no reason makeup couldn’t be an art form (well it is, but not commonly recognized as such). Absolutely loved this galaxy type look she did a while back:
She’s also the main reason I’ve started lusting after Lime Crime.
Also worth mentioning and for the most part not related to makeup: feministvoice. This account, it is hilarious and you need it in your life:
Who are some of your Insta faves?
