By Fashion Quarterly

There’s a lot to love about the social media platform with half a billion users – the filters, the gifs and the chance to show the world how #blessed you really are.

One of the deadset BEST parts about it though? The celebrity accounts, which allow us never-before-seen insight into their daily lives, loves and LOLs.

We round up a collection of celebs we love and look to for beauty inspo:

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

Ariana Grande

“At this point in my life it’s A LOT of look, but put it this way, if I was 10 years younger and going ‘out-out’ on a Saturday night instead of scrolling through TradeMe looking for mid-century furniture, Ariana Grande and her ever-poppin’ highlight would be my constant beauty ’spo. Those angles!”
Phoebe Watt – hair editor


Chrissy Teigen

“Okay so she posts more photos of her adorable children and her messy house than she does anything else, but Chrissy Teigen has got to have the most glowing skin on the internet, right? Plus, she’s just released a makeup collection with Becca so that totally elevates her to beauty guru status. The best thing about this mama is that she’s always keeping it real – and in the world of over-filtered Instagram content, she’s a total breath of fresh air.”
Lucy Slight – body editor



Victoria Beckham

“I mainly follow her for fashion reasons (and those glimpses of David and the kids, let’s be honest) but I’ve loved the increasing number of beauty snippets Vicky B has been sharing lately – in particular, her new obsession with super-active skincare.”
Megan Bedford – makeup and fragrance editor


Maye Musk

“With cheekbones to die for and the most elegant silver hair, this 70-year-old stunner absolutely epitomises ageing gracefully. Mother to Elon Musk, she’s been modelling for 55 years and still works on the most incredible international campaigns, graces the covers of top magazines and is one of the faces for CoverGirl. So much admiration!”
Tracy Davis – 40+ editor



“Ever since seeing her in concert, I have a major girl crush – she raises her kids the right way, her husband is a babe and she is a machine on the silks. I also love how she doesn’t conform to modern stereotypical ideals of beauty yet is still one of the most beautiful women in the business.”
Sarah Simpson – skin editor


Lily Allen

“I always loved Lily, but after reading her new book, My Thoughts Exactly, I’m obsessed with her. She does her own make-up for her stage shows and often posts videos of her doing it from start to finish, which is strangely riveting. She’s not afraid of experimenting with her look and has a penchant for a cheeky neon eye – all over it. ”
Amy Houlihan – celebrity editor


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

“Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may be blessed with unfairly perfect genetics but she’s also my makeup muse because she just never puts a foot wrong! I’m obsessed with glowing skin, soft blush tones and a glossy pout. Rosie always look effortless and elegant – but still inherently oozes that ‘Bardot-esque’ sex appeal.”
Erin Berryman – editor


Karlie Kloss

“I love seeing Karlie Kloss’ stunning face on my feed – her makeup looks are generally pretty pared back, with a fresh face and the odd bold lip. She always looks so glam.”
Emma Gordon – digital content producer
