My Top 10 Insta Queens
So its fair to say that Instagram is my stalking ground. I spend an insane amount of time in a black hole of scrolling through endless beautiful feeds. I have pulled together my list of people I always gravitate to. That might be because they have great content or just because I tend to like them as a person. This list could have been 100 people long but I thought that might be a bit over kill.
Clem is a top celeb stylist and her own personal style is a work of art. It's fair to say that she stole the show at this years Gossie Awards with the most unreal short dress that made me reconsider my sexuality. I know she is definitely one to watch as not only is her style on point but her Insta stories are beautifully curated with a great sense of humour.
I am sure everyone already knows and loves Louise but I had to have her on the list. Firstly, I have spent lots of time with Louise over the last year and she is such a fun person to be around. She is stunning but doesn't seem to realise just how beautiful she is. Louise also works hard on creating top notch content on everything, from her Instagram to her YouTube, and I love it all!
Ling is a UK based influencer and I am hooked on her. She is a beauty pro that knows how to have a laugh. Make up doesn't have to be serious to look good people! Ling creates 1 minute Instagram videos that are super skilled but also really engaging. I wait patiently for her next upload and want to buy everything that she uses. Job well done Ling !
Aimee Connolly is not just your average MUA she is literally taking over the beauty world. She launched her own cosmetics brand called Sculpted (by Aimee Connolly) and it is going from strength to strength. Aimee does great easy to follow Instagram tutorials on how to create a quick and easy look in no time at all. She uses a range of affordable and luxury products, so a good variety of price ranges. Also it should be noted that Aimee's boyfriend is very hot and makes guest appearances... I mean I would be lying if I didn't say that's part of the reason I watch :)
Its fair to say that Suzanne Jackson is one of the OG influencers in Ireland. I remember her launching her facebook page originally and it is insane to see how her empire has grown. You can see through her social she is an absolute grafter! You get some behind the scenes of her work life and home life. As a dog lover, I love seeing what little Harper and Coco are up to. She also travels the world, so great for some travel inspo, as well as some serious fashion and beauty content. Never a dull moment on Sue's social as she knows how to have a good time.
If you are not following this girl you are missing out on so many levels. Firstly, she is an interior genius! She can turn a battered old chair into the most stunning shabby chic piece you have ever seen. Throw in her love for a few cans of Guinness, and you have a social media dream . Drunk Dainty is probably my favourite part of following this insanely beautiful and genuine human being. Her house is the ultimate #GOALS. She also created something very beautiful for me as a memory of my Nan so Catherine holds a very special place in my heart. (will do a blog post on this another time).
Ok so Orla is as real as it gets. When watching her go through a hangover you actually start to feel every bit of that hangover. She also is a genius with skincare and finding beauty products that you have never heard of. I have got so many unreal beauty recommendations from her and those products are now my most loved beauty products. She is also knows everything there is to know about the Kardashians, which makes her a god by my standards :)
One of the funniest people there is on this planet and I am not even sure she means to be . Tara was once in a STEPS tribute, which in my personal opinion, is her biggest achievement in life so far. She is also a super skilled make-up artist and a soon to be mom. Tara is great for a good tutorial and a product recommendation . She hasn't asked me yet, but I am probably going to be her child's 'Fairy Godfather'... if it's written on the internet then it has to be true... even if you wrote it yourself :)
I would firstly like to say that I have always found skin and skincare super boring. I know how important it is but I have never been excited by it. That is until Jennifer Rock ...'rocked my world' LOL! Jennifer is a skin genius but apart from that she is able to break something super complex down so that even I understand it. She is also GAS! Doesn't take herself too seriously which is a quality I very much enjoy. Jennifer for president!
Well if it isn't Queen B herself! I mean I couldn't possibly finish this list without including one of my best pals. Honestly, where he gets the ideas for his social media I will never know. What I do know is that James and his family are great craic and find a way to put a smile on the nations face everyday. The whole of Ireland fell in love with Jame during his 'Operation Transformation' journey and his positive outlook and motivation is such a inspiration . #TEAMJAMES
