    #makeup #beauty #awesome

    1. @glorianoto

    Gloria Noto is rad in so many ways--she does makeup for Shailene Woodley, edits The Work Magazine, and curates the beauty blog Set Daze.

    2. @danabomar

    Her lip game is on point--but of course it is, as she co-owns Melt Cosmetics, the company responsible for Rihanna's fierce blue lip.

    Her partner-in-crime Lora Arellano is also amazing and is featured on the Melt Cosmetics account.

    3. @romerojennings

    As the Director of Makeup Artistry for MAC, you better believe this man knows what he's doing.

    Lisa Eldridge is a well-known UK makeup artist. And while you're at it, follow Lisa Eldridge's YouTube tutorials for great skincare advice.

    5. @patmcgrathreal

    If you've been loving (which you have) Lupita Nyong'o's killer looks, you can thank Nick Barose. He not only documents products and his work, but he has these great posts with toys that give you beauty tips! For example, blend your blush or you'll end up like Pikachu.
