Ahead, find our five favorite beauty illustrators that will add a touch of makeup magic to your feeds and fingertips with just one scroll.

The Illos That Make You Want to Restock Your Beauty Stash: @marinedequenetain

If we aren’t already super inspired by Marine’s impressive resume, her illustrations certainly take the makeup cake. She makes the products feel so dimensional and lifelike in her artwork, so much so that we feel like we can reach in and grab them off of their respective shelves.

The Beauty Illustrations That Should Be Framed in a Museum: @topshelfieillustrated

Lauren Johnstone of @topshelfieillustrated is a force to be reckoned with, as her illustrations are literally beautiful enough to be placed in a gallery. We love her creativity with color palette and surrealism and her ability to make each product feel like a dream.

The Makeup Illustrations That Will Make You Smile: @by.minoue

There’s not much more we want in life besides small kittens and lipsticks, so when illustrator @by.minoue put these two entities together into one beautiful feed, our minds can’t help but reel. We love the creativity and cuteness that goes into every Insta on this feed and how each post has the ability to literally brighten our day.


I hadn’t planned to post today… but then I was suddenly inspired by this @yslbeauty Volupté Tint-in-Balm, which I’ve had in my purse for a few months now. It moisturizes really well, smells like fruit juice, and leaves just a hint of colour. And I have to admit I was immediately charmed by the little lip design in the middle of the balm! 💕What is your favourite coloured lip balm? Have you tried this one?💋 (BTW, I’m trying to switch up my cat colours! This cat paw was inspired by @stunnydesi_loves’ cat. Thanks again for the #shoutout!) • • • • • #byminoue #beautylover #catdrawing #illustrationartists #lovetodraw #beautyeditor #illustrated #illustragram #beautyjunkie #skincareblogger #makeupjunkie #beautyillustration #bbloggersca #beautybloggers #skincareroutine #jbeauty #japanesecosmetics #japaneseskincare #japanesemakeup #kbeauty #メイク #コスメ #makeupaddicts #海外コスメ #beautycommunity #abcommunity #rasianbeauty #beautyproducts #illustrationoftheday
