Spotlight: 9 Make-up Artist to Watch this Fall

How many people can say they honestly know how to apply make-up correctly? There are many tricks to the trade and what most people don’t realize is that all makeup trends are NOT for everyone. Everyone’s face is different. Learning how to administer the correct amount of blush, matching your skin with the right foundation, and perfecting the infamous winged tip eye liner definitely takes time and patience. Most people however just prefer to have someone else accentuate their best facial features. These are the people you never want to piss off! Your life is physically in their hands. Make-up artist or make-up gurus as I like to refer to them, have the power to assist in giving you the best selfie you’ve ever taken no matter the lighting.

In my journey of learning what make-up works best for my skin tone and face shape, I constantly find myself searching for the best 15-second makeup tutorials on Instagram. I’ve had the pleasure of finding nine of the best artist to watch in 2015. These artist not only use Instagram to showcase their talents but they also host make-up workshops, webinars, YouTube tutorials and some even have had the luxury of beautifying celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, King Kylie and more.
