As beauty editors, we spend a lot of time on Instagram looking for inspiration on how to do our makeup, fresh ideas for skincare and new methods for styling our hair, which is why we have such love for the existing and new beauty bloggers of this world. Some of the most creative and exciting beauty ideas come from the blogosphere.
While there are plenty of people we already follow who are well established, there are always new bloggers who really stand out for us, whether that's because of their images, their ideas or just because they're doing something really fresh. With that in mind, we've rounded up some of the most interesting beauty bloggers around this year—some are newer to the industry than others, but either way we guarantee you'll get a heck of a lot of inspiration from all of them. Click through our gallery for our selection of the most exciting beauty bloggers to follow in 2016.

Why follow: There's nothing we love more than discovering what other people like to put on their faces, especially when it comes to lotions and potions.
