12 Inspiring Instagram Accounts To Follow

Instagram is great for keeping up with what your friends are doing, but it can also be a great source for inspiration. I follow a mixture of talented creatives who help push me to take better photos, experiment with my make-up and make bolder fashion choices. If you're wanting to freshen up your feed with beautiful and inspiring images, look no further than this round-up of my favourite Instagram accounts. They're too good to keep to myself!

Make-up 


@lucygarland I came across Aussie babe Lucy Garland when I was searching on YouTube for Violet Chachki make-up tutorials. Her version was so flawless and I'm obsessed with all her other drag make-up looks.

@sarahillmakeup Sara Hill is a woman of many talents. She's mostly known as a make-up artist, based in Glasgow, and last year she launched a fab cruelty free make-up brand. You'll find a mixture of her work and other MUA's creative looks using Sara Hill make-up.

Photography


@nualaswan Nuala Swan is a Glasgow based fashion photographer who's shot for Wonderland, Hope Street and many amazing designer's lookbooks. She chooses film photography over digital, which adds to the retro feel of her pictures.

Fashion


@hannahlouisef If I had to pick one fashion blogger to swap wardrobes with it would be Hannah Louise's. We share a love for sixties styles and I love the way her outfits look so effortlessly cool.

@leithclark One of my biggest inspirations in fashion is Leith Clark. This woman is THE definition of a girl boss! Formally the chief editor of Lula magazine, Leith is now the editor of Violet and style director for Harpers Bazzar. Her Instagram features her latest editorials where she puts together the dreamiest of outfits.

@belleandbunty Fashion blogging duo and bridal fashion designers Alice and Hannah know how to co-ordinate in style! If you're a girly girl like me, you'll love their tendency to shoot in pretty locations wearing either pastel colours or beautiful prints.
