Aside from its big contribution to pop culture as we know it, Hollywood is also known for its glitz and glamour. Celebrities have also come at the forefront of outfits and looks we love. But behind the scenes, it's the trusted makeup artists who ensure that our favourite stars have envy-worthy looks that are also picture-perfect and red-carpet-ready. So, this time around, we’re putting the spotlight on them. Here are Hollywood makeup artists to follow on Instagram.
If you love a bolder take on natural makeup courtesy of a sultry smokey eye, Hung Vanngo is the MUA for you. He’s responsible for some of the most stunning looks on Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez, Kaia Gerber and Kendall Jenner. You wouldn’t run out of eye makeup inspiration with him on your feed.
As the man behind some of Kim Kardashian’s noteworthy looks, he’s definitely one of the biggest Hollywood makeup artists today. While he did not create the "baking" technique in makeup, he did bring it to mainstream consciousness. If getting that perfectly chiselled look is your thing, a quick scroll on his IG profile will give you all the tips you need.
Pat McGrath is another makeup artist that's as famous as her clients. Her collaborations with many celebrities, models, brands, and even drag queens are some of today’s boldest and creative looks that truly demonstrate the ‘artist’ in makeup artistry. Plus, her namesake makeup brand is also a fan-favourite.
A clean, glowing look? That’s Patrick Ta’s expertise. Known for some of the best ‘no makeup’ makeup looks of beauties like Adriana Lima, Lili Reinhart, and Camilla Cabello, his makeup style is reminiscent of Asian beauty’s minimalist appeal, tweaked to fit Western features. Your daily look would definitely take a turn for the better if you take a page out of his portfolio.
Hrush Achemyan is another Hollywood makeup artist worth following. Hrush’s expert tips and tricks on IG on perfecting the ‘lush lashes and plump lips’ look — as shown on her frequent clients, the Kardashian-Jenners — will have you leaving hearts again and again. Plus, Hrush doing her own makeup and flaunting it on her grid will inspire you to experiment with your own looks, too.
