Friday, 31 January 2014

Whether you’re a beauty fanatic or you’re a beginner looking for tips and tricks of the trade, be sure to head on over to Twitter for on-the-minute beauty news and gorgeous inspiration. Considering Twitter is filled to the rafters with bloggers, brands and professionals, we’ve put together a list of our favourite beauty accounts to get you started!

Charlotte Tilbury on Twitter

Internationally renowned make-up artist, Charlotte Tilbury, has secured her place in the world of make-up. Not only does she have her own line of products, but she has worked with some of the most well-known fashion photographers in the industry. Needless to say, her Twitter account is nothing short of incredible: behind-the-scenes beauty sneak peeks, gorgeous product shots and more, @CTilburyMakeup is a must-follow for any beauty fanatic. 

NARS on Twitter

Official Twitter account for international cosmetics brand NARS, @NARSissist is a treasure trove of witty beauty-related tweets and on-point beauty tips.

WAH-Nails on Twitter

If nail art inspiration is what you’re after, then @WAHNAILS is one Twitter account you don’t want to miss. With two published books and a nail art studio in the bustling Topshop store on Oxford Street, London, it’s no surprised that Wah Nails are ahead of the pack when it comes to nail art.

Maybelline and Pat McGrath on Twitter

Not only is Maybelline one of the most popular drugstore make-up brands internationally, but they also have a pretty awesome Twitter account. While majority of their posts are related to their products, their tweets offer both make-up inspiration and a daily dose of unparalleled wit!

If it’s make-up inspiration you’re after, then @patmcgrathreal is one Twitter account you don’t want to miss. As one of the industry’s most legendary make-up artists, Pat McGrath was recently included in Queen Elizabeth 11’s New Year Honors list when she was named MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) – she is just too cool!

The Beauty Department on Twitter

If you love beauty as much as we do, you would have heard of The Beauty Department. Arguably one of our favourite beauty Twitter accounts, @TBDofficial never fails to disappoint with beauty how-to’s and gorgeous inspiration.

Luigi Murenu on Twitter

We are in awe of international hairstylist Luigi Murenu. With an impressive portfolio, he has worked with some of the biggest fashion designers and magazines in the business. While Luigi mainly tweets photographs he uploads onto his Instagram account, be warned, once you click through to his photographs you’ll be tempted to go through his entire archive of images – they are that beautiful!

BeautyLish on Twitter

For a wide variety of beauty-related tweets, @beautylish is one Twitter account you ought to follow. While majority of the tweets are make-up & skincare advice, you’ll be surprised by the inspiring fashion and lifestyle tweets that spring up every other day.
