Being a makeup artist myself I am always trying to improve, see what the trends are and just basically fawn over the rock star makeup artists out there. The talent that is out there is absolutely amazing and sometimes I am just blown away by the images I see. I have been doing loads of research since back from my holiday and trying to get inspired for beauty shoots I am planning as well and makeup tutorials I want to do. The makeup artists I follow are a mixture of flawless perfection and a bit out there crazy avant guard makeup. So here is my list of makeup artists you need to know about if you don't already.
