10 LGBTQ+ Makeup Bloggers Who Are Slaying the Game

When we’re scrolling through our fave beauty accounts on social media, we’re often so focused on the stunning makeup looks that we forget about the actual artists creating them and what they mean to their followers and subscribers. This can be especially true for LGBTQ+ beauty influencers on TikTok, Instagram and Youtube, who inspire and uplift so many by sharing their stories and, of course, through their work. Here, we’re sharing 9 of our favorite LGBTQ+ content creators you’re going to want to follow, ASAP. 


For unsolicited (yet totally welcome) skin-care advice, subscribe to Hyram’s TikTok account like, now. He’s always sharing what products to buy (he’s a huge CeraVe fan!) and has dedicated his account to helping followers get their skin-care routines in check. If you’re lucky, he may even duet your skin-care routine.
