Meditative tutorials to watch on Instagram (to ease your mind)

by Aisling Keenan
19th Mar 2020

Meditative tutorials can take you from frustrated and stressed to blissed out in a matter of minutes. Beauty tutorials, I find, are the best way to chill.

Are our brains all turning slowly to mush, as we try to complete yet another 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle and clean out our ‘mess’ drawers? Yes, yes they are.

Aside from working from home, and the stress that may bring, there’s childcare worries, health worries… the list, it goes on. To completely distract your mind for ten minutes is basically a meditative act now.

With that in mind, I’ve rounded up some very chill, very addictive and really captivating make-up tutorials that you can watch, lose some time in and emerge from with a renewed sense of calm. I can’t guarantee the feeling will last, but you might pick up some winged liner knowledge.
