Level Up: 7 Celebrity Makeup Artists On Instagram You Should Follow In 2020


The best thing about the internet is that it has suddenly made content so democratised and I strongly feel that way about the beauty industry. There was a time when we would gawk at celebrities on the big screen and never understand how they managed to look so radiant, glamorous, and youthful all the time. However, now thanks to YouTube and Instagram we understand just what went behind creating a makeup look. 

Today we're listing down some makeup artists that you need to follow on Instagram to get a deeper understanding on makeup and skincare.

Shaan Muttathil

Best known for being Jacqueline Fernandez's MUA, Shaan goes all out with his beauty looks. He isn't afraid of thinking out of the box and playing with colour and picking dramatic lashes to go with bold lips. Of course, now he's become an influencer in his own right and does brand collaborations and makeup tutorials that everyone can follow.

Mario Dedivanovic

Mario Dedivanovic is a beauty guru that the whole world looks up to and for good reason. He is the genius behind Kim Kardashian's looks and in October 2020 he launched his own beauty brand. He often shows product swatches, shares tips for a runway-ready glow, and inspires inclusivity in the makeup world.

Namrata Soni

Namrata Soni has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry including Sonam Kapoor, Lisa Haden, Radhika Apte, and Janhvi Kapoor. She was also the MUA for Sonam and Pernia's wedding and even does bridal makeup. Personally, it's her creative editorial looks that I'm the most fascinated with. So, if you're looking for a one-stop Insta page to take inspo from, she's the one!

Ariel Tajada

Wondering how Kylie Jenner aces her makeup looks every time? Well, thank Ariel. His Instagram is great to follow if you want to keep up with the trends and know what's the latest in the beautyverse. Always trying out creative and colourful looks, this is the guy if you want to learn how to have an Insta-ready pout on command.

Daniel Bauer

Another well-renowned hair and makeup artist in the industry, he's worked with leading magazines for photoshoots as well as stars like Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma, and Aishwarya Rai. He is also the Global Makeup Director for MyGlamm. If you're interested in creating whacky hairstyles or even recreating smokey eye makeup rocked by your fav star, then scroll through his social media cause he's got all this and more.


Nikki is a Dior makeup artist who has worked with supermodels from across the globe. For OTT editorial looks or glass skin inspiration, she's your gal! If you can't perfect your winged liner yet, after following her you'll be attempting reverse cat eyes, trust us! Social distancing can at least have some benefits.

Arti Nayar

Brides to be, you've got to keep a close eye on Arti Nayar's page because she is with trends. What's amazing about her is that she really breaks down makeup and skincare ingredient and product-wise so that even a beauty noob can understand. She tries products herself and recommends those which she has personally loved. We love an authentic MUA, don't we!?
