My Favourite Instagram Accounts of 2016

My Favourite Instagram Accounts of 2016

It's no secret that I love Instagram, it is by far my favourite social media platform. I think for a lot of bloggers/ makeup accounts Instagram is the easiest way to show your creativity, and for me I find it so inspiring looking through everyone's pictures. I was a bit worried when I was starting this blog about putting myself 'out there', but actually what I've found is that everyone on IG has actually been really supportive and kind. I thought I'd put together some of my favourite Instagram accounts of last year (and still this year too obviously!) - all of these people have amazingly beautiful accounts and they've also been really supportive as well! This post isn't exhaustive by any means as there are literally hundreds of inspiring accounts and so many more that I just love, but these are just a few of my personal faves :)


gemellisx Instagram
Gemma has the most beautiful photography and amazing flatlay skills; her IG page is really something to behold. I love that she often shares photography tips and tricks over on her blog www.gemmalouise.co.uk. Her makeup is always flawless, how she gets such good pictures of it I will never know! Her IG feed totally inspires me to try and improve my own photography, and on top of that she is so sweet and very supportive- she always gives good blogging advice! I would seriously recommend checking Gemma's profile out if you like crisp, clean photography and incredible makeup pics.


elleymae Instagram
The thing I love most about Elley Mae is that she is so kind and supportive! She often does S4S on her account to promote smaller accounts and did shout-outs on her Instagram Stories to get me over 1,000 followers! On top of this she has such a beautiful blog www.elleymae.com where she gives killer blogging tips and free downloads and she has a seriously impressive makeup collection. I cannot get enough of her pictures, you cannot help but be inspired by her beautiful feed. I also love watching her IG stories for lots of 'behind-the-scenes' of her photo shoots, I really enjoy seeing how everyone has their photos set up! She recently hit over 10k followers and she really does deserve them!


staceylouisewhite Instagram
Stacey has the most gorgeous crisp white feed, it's so pretty to look at! Every picture is so bright and high-end looking, it definitely makes me want to improve my pictures! Her blog www.staceylouisewhite.co.uk has consistently outstanding content which is definitely something to look up to for a new blogger like me. I also really love how honest she is like in this post, it makes you realise that we are all learning and you don't have to put pressure on yourself to be perfect! She is such a kind blogger and I would definitely check her out if you don't follow her already!

If you want a peek inside a real-life dream world go and check out Catherine's IG feed immediately, you will not be disappointed. Every picture is SO pretty, it really is a girlie girl's dream. You can tell Catherine puts a lot of thought and effort not just into each picture but her feed as a whole, there is a perfect pink theme and not one picture looks out of place. The cuteness continues on her blog www.lovecatherine.co.uk, and you have to see her extraordinary cake making prowess - Cakes By Catherine. I honestly just love looking over Catherine's IG feed it just makes me feel really inspired, plus pink is my favourite colour so you just can't go wrong!


hellohimawarii Instagram
Mika is such a sweet person and has the most impressive makeup collection going, it's literally any beauty lovers dream! Her photography is always spot on - I love how clear and bright every photo is and every photo is packed with gorgeous crisp colour. Every shot is so dreamy, I would love to see Mika's beauty collection in one go, I cannot imagine how amazing it would be. She puts so much effort into every image and you only have to go and look at her blog www.hellohimawari.com to see how much work goes into each and every post - they are always so detailed with loads of gorgeous images.


stunnydesi_loves Instagram
Desi is honestly one of the nicest people on IG, she always leaves the nicest and most thoughtful comments and she is always supporting other people's accounts. Her flatlays have so much detail in them and what I really love is that she always goes the extra mile to give all the product details and mini reviews in her captions. She often does a 'capsule collection' where she has a selection of products and uses only those things for a couple of weeks. I don't think I could do it for two weeks but it definitely makes you think about using things you don't normally use or getting more use out of forgotten products. She doesn't have a blog or a website at the moment but I really think she could start one - she has such a big makeup collection!

I hope all these lovely ladies have continued success in 2017, and I can't wait to see what new photos the year brings! What are some of your favourite IG accounts? I love finding new people to follow so let me know your favourites in the comments :)

  3. I'm so honoured and flattered. I can't believe you chose to include me because I feel that all the other accounts and ladies deserve it way more. I still feel like I only pretend to have a professional IG account. But you really inspire me to get better, as do all the other ladies.
    Thank you so much, lovely.
    Hugs
    Desi
