As the very definition of “beauty” continues to expand and evolve, so too, does the world of content creators and artists surrounding it. And just to be clear? We are here for it!
From pops of color to gravity-defying lines, here’s a rundown of artists who’ve caught our eyes — and are sure to inspire your next makeup sesh, too.
Vanessa Funes, the Salvadorian New Yorker known as @cutcreaser, is winning over thousands of fans (335K and counting) with her fresh takes on graphic liner. The superhero lover takes comic-book colors and pop art to heart in her work: giving due credit to her artists process, inspo, and Marvel infatuation while spending ample time chatting and creating with her YouTube community.
This neon-goth artist doesn’t just wow over 800K TikTok fans with fay-inspired edginess — Ria Kelly stuns viewers with effortless brush strokes and wickedly clever reveals in every video. With a steady hand and spooky-season vibes all year ‘round, @fairy.freak is a must follow.
With their signature pink and blue hair, @salty.simmone has an IG fandom that’s hard to compete with. Simmone’s vibrant eye makeup reflects the energy and love she receives with every post. Nothing is off-limits for this LA-based MUA who flexes their skills in every look — whether paying homage to Sesame Street or celebrating pride.
Known as @pradaolic to most, Myla has made a name for themselves on both sides of the pond. The UK-based artist loves a full-glam look, from head to toe, and shows beauty and grace every time — trading airbrushing for sun and textured skin. (A unique mix that makes us love their looks — and ours — even more).
Giselle Ali is intentional about her makeup space. With a focus on Black women, body love, and honest reviews of makeup brands, she’s a one-stop shop for beauty and standards. Her humor, truth-telling, and advocacy are a bonus to her stunning eye looks and killer confidence.
Romanian makeup artist Malvina Isfan is the crème de la crème of editorial looks. Isfan’s creations range from smoky shadows and metallic wonders to bold lids with rich liners. Watching all the cinematic reels of Isfan’s work is more than enough reason to give this artist a follow — but fair warning, you’ll have a hard time stopping.
