The Beauty Girls Of Instagram We Wish We Were Friends With


Press follow for a swoon-worthy beauty TL

Working in beauty seems to the most incredible job in existence. You get to talk about make up all day (and skincare… and perfume etc.), you’re up to speed with the latest products, treatments and trends – and you’re never less than five metres away from a lipstick. We pick some of our favourite ladies in the beauty industry whose Instagram feeds we’re obsessed with …

Fanny Bourdette Donon
A Dior beauty PR and best friends with Bella Hadid – oh and she’s French. It really doesn’t get much cooler than that. Fanny’s Instagram feed shows how her style and beauty game is off the charts (and you’ll see all the latest product launches from Dior, naturally …) @fannybourdettedonon

This weather has me feelin' … ☔️

Nykhor-Nyakueinyang Paul
The Sudanese model has not been afraid to call out backstage artists who don’t have the necessary shades or adequate expertise to work with her skintone, writing on Instagram, “Why do I have to bring my own make-up to a professional show…?” As well as her activism, she also shares a plethora of gorgeous beauty looks and backstage snaps. @nykhor

Dear white people in the fashion world! Please don't take this the wrong way but it's time you people get your shit right when it comes to our complexion! Why do I have to bring my own makeup to a professional show when all the other white girls don't have to do anything but show up wtf! Don't try to make me feel bad because I am blue black its 2015 go to Mac, Bobbi Brown, Makeup forever, Iman cosmetic, black opal, even Lancôme and Clinique carried them plus so much more. there's so much options our there for dark skin tones today. A good makeup artist would come prepare and do there research before coming to work because often time you know what to expect especially at a show! Stop apologizing it's insulting and disrespectful to me and my race it doesn't help, seriously! Make an effort at least! That goes for NYC, London, Milan, Paris and Cape Town plus everywhere else that have issues with black skin tones. Just because you only book a few of us doesn't mean you have the right to make us look ratchet. I'm tired of complaining about not getting book as a black model and I'm definitely super tired of apologizing for my blackness!!!! Fashion is art, art is never racist it should be inclusive of all not only white people, shit we started fashion in Africa and you modernize and copy it! Why can't we be part of fashion fully and equally?
