Ever get sick of being yourself? Are you searching for an escape but stuck in one place? Has that feeling intensified with self-isolation and looming lockdown? Sometimes it’s the frivolous things that get us through best. Besides, we can’t self-care all day long. So we are here to suggest that you throw on an orange eyeliner and pretend you’re someone else. If only for a little while.
With not much else to do but access the internet, we’ve rounded up the best accounts for beauty inspiration. From our favourite models, the celebrities who love to take a beauty risk and the makeup artists that are an endless source of inspiration.
Look to the next gen.
Maude Apatow, daughter of Judd and Iris Law, daughter of Jude are no strangers to changing their looks. Be it for the red carpet or for a night with friends opt for a little fun. You don’t need a full look, just choose one thing like a red lip and emphasise that.
If like us, Euphoria made you rethink the way you do beauty then Barbie Fererria is for you. Extending the on set looks into real life she’ll make you consider red eyeshadow, a black wing with a hint of yellow and baby blue eyeliner.

The red carpet for real life.
Award season red carpets are entertainment in and of themselves. And we’ll always love the celebrities willing to go all out. Give the people what they want. For out of the box ideas that still feels transferable to real life we look to the likes of actresses Jodie Smith and Kate Bosworth and musician FKA Twigs.

No one has transformed beauty recently more than Thomas de Kluyver as the Global Makeup Artist for Gucci Beauty. Perhaps it is the casting but his looks feel most translatable into our real life. Freeing us from the constraints of perfection we’re left to enjoy ourselves as we are and from there let our creativity run wild. No celebrity seems to be taking risks as much as Lucy Boynton and this is thanks to makeup artist Jo Baker. Whispy lashes, kaleidoscope eyes and glitter that reads as chic not girly. We all need an inspirational jumping off point and her Instagram reads like the Pinterest page of your makeup dreams.
