The beauty models to follow on Instagram

The beauty models to follow on Instagram

Beauty models are a very special type of model. They’re faced with the need to be always ready for a HD close-up, and have a different set of requirements than for fashion models. Here are some of the best in the business.


If ever I’m putting together a beauty shoot, I immediately go to Instagram. Years ago, I would’ve asked the modelling agencies for their ‘best beauty girls’. This would’ve resulted in me receiving a selection of images to go through, not with fashion in mind, but specifically beauty.

A ‘beauty girl’ will have a different set of requirements from a fashion model. Either thick, long and malleable hair or else entirely unique hair (a tight cut, à la Iesha below). Big brows, as is the trend right now. Symmetry in the face, particularly lips and eyes. Immaculate skin and if possible, really lovely natural nails.

It’s a big ask, absolutely. And while there could always be more diversity, the easiest way nowadays to find a truly different beauty model is to go to their Instagram – so much so that all the model agents now link their models’ pages to their personal Instagram accounts. Here are some of my favourite faces to watch.
