If you’re looking for some new inspiration for makeup looks, or looking to brush up on your skills, here are 10 gurus you need to start following!
Marisha Beauty: @goodgibson will have you looking snatched for any occasion. If you’re looking for some soft glam, she is the one for you. Not to mention her cut-creases are clean, even when done with glitter, and I think we know how messy glitter looks can get! One thing to note is her tutorials are in French, but they are still quite easy to follow along with.
Ohemaa Bonsu: @_ohemaabonsu If you want to be verified show-stopper then you need to start following Ohemaa. Her bright looks will definitely help you stand out at any function. Or you just want to play around with colours. But that’s not to say she doesn’t do subtle looks as well. If you celebrate Halloween or are into costume parties, but you’re always doing things last-minute, she has easy tutorials for those as well.
Kemmie: @simplykemmie has the natural, warm smoky eyes we all need in our make-up look repertoire. Her work is all about blending, so if you’re also looking for someone to help you practice your blending skills while trying new looks, Kemmie’s the one. Her videos are also beginner friendly, from getting the perfect brow to the perfect glow.
Oluwayemisi - Shawnté: @oluwayemisi_s has looks for days you need full glam, soft glam, natural, bold colours and everything else in between. She has got basically all the makeup inspiration you need for any occasion. But if you’re looking to be more daring with your makeup without venturing too far out of your comfort, she is a great place to start, with her softer looks.
Taffy: @beautywithtaffy is all about the big, bold and beautiful looks; another Qween who isn’t shy to play with colours. Her videos focus mostly on eye looks, so if you’re confident in your base (foundation, concealer etc.) skills, but want to expand your eyeshadow range, check her out. If you’re also trying to work on your cut crease, and playing around with liners and lines, in general, she is a great place to start, to get inspired.
