The celebrity beauty business is booming and Insta is full of artists whose feeds you can get totally lost in. These are just a few of our fave celebrity make-up artists, whose clients include everyone from Demi Lovato to Hailey Baldwin, so you know they’re the real deal.
Mario Dedivanovic (@makeupbymario)
Best known for his work with – who else? – the Kardashians, Mario’s client list includes all the Ks as well as Demi Lovato, Gabrielle Union and Kate Bosworth.
The make-up superstar is about to appear as a judge on new beauty competition series Glam Masters, which is executive produced by his bestie, Kimmy K. Compulsive watching much?
Pat McGrath (@patmcgrathreal)
Pat is a beauty force to be reckoned with. The British artist has gone from having no formal make-up training, to creating her own cosmetics line, Pat McGrath Labs. Her first product, a gold eyeshadow pigment called Gold 001, created a huge buzz back in 2015 and the line has gone from strength to strength since.
A long-time friend of new British Vogue editor Edward Enninful, Pat recently did the make-up on Edward’s first Vogue cover model, the gorgeous Adwoa Aboah.

Carolina Gonzalez (@cgonzalezbeauty)
Pictured below (left) with celeb hairdresser Danielle Priano, Carolina works on all the campaigns, shoots and fashion shows for Victoria’s Secret, meaning she regularly makes up the likes of Candice Swanepoel, Taylor Hill and Adriana Lima.
VS Angels aside, Carolina has worked her magic on Nicola Peltz and Sofia Vergara, so you know her feed is just full of celebs.
Hung Vanngo (@hungvanngo)
We love Hung (pictured below, right) and the gorgeous looks he creates for Selena Gomez, Hailey Baldwin and Elsa Hosk.
Celebs aside, Hung has also worked on beauty editorials and fashion weeks aplenty, so following him on Insta feels a bit like travelling the globe one glamorous event at a time.
Hrush Achemyan (@styledbyhrush)
Hrush’s own glam is always on point, but it’s a wonder she has time to paint her own face at all, what with her many celebrity clients.

All the Kardashian and Jenner sisters rely on her services and Hrush also works on the Kylie Cosmetics campaigns. Like we said, it’s a wonder she has time for ANYTHING outside of work, but her Instagram is pure fire.
Priscilla Ono (@priscillaono)
If you’re obsessed with Rihanna then you HAVE to follow her make-up artist, Priscilla. Not only does she post loads of RiRi pics, but she also has the 411 on all the latest Fenty Beauty products, before they hit stores.
As well as Queen Ri, Priscilla has painted the faces of Paris Hilton, Golden Barbie and Amber Rose.
#SPANKED #MATTEMOISELLE drops Dec. 26th #makeupbypriscillaono for #fentybeauty -This very moment makes me remember 13 Year’s ago, while cleaning gondolas late at night when I was working for Sephora in downtown Disney I would stare at each brands campaign images and day dream of myself actually doing the makeup… what brushes I would use, how I would apply each product strategically so I could bump up the next look without having to take it all off, how I would choose certain products for specific lighting and moods etc. 13 Year’s later and everything comes full circle!! working on a campaign that will be at Sephora’s world wide ??? Thank you Ri for letting me be a small piece in your EPIC world of #FentyBeauty ?? #SiSePuede
Patrick Ta (@patrickta)
Patrick is the man responsible for Gigi Hadid’s flawless California girl look, but he really has worked with everyone, from Chrissy Teigen to Ariana Grande.
