Procter &Gamble's creative-design director is super influential on Instagram. Innovative and daring, Pat McGrath prefers using her hands to do her models' makeup than makeup brushes. She dares, invents, creates. English of Jamaican origin, she broke through in the 90s when she joined the team of I-D magazine. Her CV includes names such as Prada, Armani, John Galliano... On Instagram, she shares behind-the-scenes and exclusive shots, often even before the girls have walked the catwalk.

Star of the make up artist, Charlotte Tilbury now has her own brand of cosmetics. She frequents the biggest celebrities almost on a daily basis but tenderly keeps, in the description of her profile, the mention "mother of two children". We really like her shots with the stars, half-groupie, half-professional. At her side, we rub shoulders with the crème de la crème, we discover new makeup trends and its flagship products, while drawing inspiration from fashion shows and photo shoots.

Tom Bachik is a make up artist of another kind. Him, it is the nails that he sublimates. Nail artist for L'Oréal Paris, her Instagram account is teeming with inspiration to dress her hands in haute couture nail polish. J-Lo, Rita Ora, Rachel Mc Adams, Selena Gomez, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani... All the hands of the most prominent people have passed through hers. And if his meticulous work could sometimes go unnoticed on the red carpet, Tom Bachik has created, thanks to his very extensive Instagram account, a real high-end portfolio.

Tom Pécheux is the Frenchy of the band. Since 2009, the make-up artist, originally from Burgundy, has been the head of creative make-up at Estée Lauder. For him, makeup is a tool to sublimate, not to camouflage or transform. We love his shots taken behind the scenes of major fashion shows, in close-up. You feel like you are with him and you can soak up his inspirations and advice. He is very followed and very often, he is accompanied by the girl to follow at the moment.
His followers: 104.000
Why we love it: first, because we are a bit chauvinistic and then, because he is always in the most seen shows and surrounded by the coolest top models of the moment!
