My Fave Instagrammers

Hi All! I hope this post finds you well and calm in the midst of this insanity. I agree it is a very stressful time, because of all the uncertainty surrounding the virus. Deep breaths. Purell.

To take your mind off of things, I’ve put together a list of my fave Instagrammers. If I could spend all day on the ‘Gram, I would. But I don’t get paid for that, so I won’t. If we’re going to WFH, though, what better way to waste time?!


Karen: Makeup and Beauty Blog: Karen creates beautiful, easy-to-do-yourself looks. She always has swatches of the new releases from your fave brands. She also gives followers a peek at her life as a mom to four-year-old Connor Claire, aka CoyCoy or The Coywolf. And she’s a fellow Cat Lady, so I had to include her! Her IG is here.

Katie Jane Hughes: Hughes is a NYC-based makeup artist whose clients include Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Ashley Graham. The ladies at Allure are fans, too. (See here and here.) She generously shares her top makeup and skin care tips on social media. Her IG is here.

Jenny Patinkin: Patinkin is a makeup artist and entrepreneur. I have two of her makeup brushes, and use the cheek brush pretty much every day. I love the name of her brand: Lazy Perfection. That’s so me. She is good at showing women of a certain age (like me) how to do beautiful, minimalist makeup that looks polished. And she doesn’t shy away from talking about the hormonal chaos and the resulting health effects (perimenopausal acne?!? Yuck!) that comes with being a woman over 50. Her IG is here.


And all the makeup in the world is not going to help if you don’t take care of your skin and use sunscreen. Who better to give you skin care tips than a derm, right? Joshua Zeichner is a derm in Manhattan who is frequently quoted in the press. And here! His IG is filled with skin care tips and sunscreen reminders, all delivered with a sense of humor. His IG is here.


Vanity Projects (NYC and Miami): If you are looking for nail art inspiration, look no further. These two pages have ideas galore! I don’t really get into full-on nail art these days, but you know I love a cool accent nail! Check out Vanity Project NYC’s IG here and Vanity Projects Miami’s IG here.

Londontown USA: And of course, I had to include Londontown USA. I’m typing this while wearing Bell Flower, a smoky mauve that’s pretty for a transitional time of year. This stuff never quits. It always stays perfect, until you take it off. BTW, if you use the code fabforever, you get 25 percent off your first order! Their IG is here.


I am at a loss here guys, TBH. I really don’t have a favorite hair IGer, except to shout out to my mane man, Stephen Cunniff of imago beauty Group in Jersey City. He always keeps my hair looking amazing. Here’s Imago’s Insta.

Tell me. Who are your fave Instagrammers? I’m always up for checking out a new IG page. Let me know in the comments! (And don’t hog all the TP and hand sanitizer!)
