Need a little Insta inspo? These five feeds will give you loads of eye candy to keep you scrolling happily. From fashion's top lensmen to its go-to makeup artist, follow these feeds!

Mario Testino, @mariotestino
Claim to fame: One of the most in-demand fashion photographers, the Peruvian-born Testino shoots for Vogue worldwide as well as Gucci, Versace and Michael Kors. Recently awarded a Clio lifetime achievement award, he’s known for letting subjects like Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow shine in his colorful, eye-catching work.

Gram style: Recent editorial (Kendall Jenner in V Magazine), behind-the-scenes snaps (South American beach scenes) and an IG-specific “towel series” of models clad only in a white towel.


Kate Young, @kateyoung
Claim to fame: The former Vogue sittings editor is now one of the most sought-after stylists in Hollywood, with a well-dressed roster that includes Michelle Williams, Sienna Miller and Selena Gomez. Seamlessly crossing the worlds of celebrity and fashion, she’s consulted for brands like Armani Exchange and Tod’s and styled campaigns for Jason Wu, Bulgari and Carolina Herrera.

Gram style: A fashion lover’s dream of detail shots (embroidery on an Alexander McQueen gown), red carpet moments (a pregnant Natalie Portman in Prada) and killer street style (Margot Robbie in Gucci).


Charlotte Tilbury, @ctilburymakeup
Claim to Fame: The British makeup artist has an unending list of celeb clients (Gwen Stefani, Penélope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez) and has worked on campaigns and runway shows for Stella McCartney, Versace and Etro. Known for her signature “feline flick” cat eye, her eponymous makeup and skincare line is coveted worldwide.

Gram Style: Red carpet looks (Nicole Kidman at the Golden Globes), editorial work (Jennifer Aniston in Marie Claire) and pretty product plugs. Plus quirky #bts moments like Céline Dion serenading her Beach Stick bronzer.


Jen Atkin, @jenatkinhair
Claim to fame: In addition to coiffing the Kardashians, Atkin is behind the magnificent manes of Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara and Chrissy Teigen. When she’s not melding old-school beauty with up-to-the-minute trends in editorial for Elle, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, she runs innovative hair care line Ouai and content site Mane Addicts.

Gram style: Like a well-connected best friend’s mix of videos, memes and other fun stuff (animal face filters with Bella Hadid). And plenty of hair inspo, whether it’s Jenna Dewan at the Golden Globes or Karlie Kloss during Paris Fashion Week.


Peter Lindbergh, @therealpeterlindbergh
Claim to fame: The German photographer is celebrated for his cinematic images, often in black and white, which he refuses to retouch in order to showcase raw, natural beauty. Responsible for the iconic 1990 British Vogue cover of Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington that ushered in the era of the supermodel, he’s shot recent campaigns for Giorgio Armani, Tiffany & Co. and Cartier.

Gram style: Striking images from his latest work (the 2017 Pirelli calendar, an Azzedine Alaïa cover story for Elle France) and selfies with subjects like Helen Mirren—most of course, in black and white.
