Thank goodness for social media. Once upon a time, we had to rely on glossies and celebrity gossip to get our fix, but today we get daily, up-close-and-personal peeks into their lives, allowing our inner fangirl to run wild and free. Of all the different modes of social media, Instagram is by far one of our favourites for staying updating on Hollywood's finest. There's nothing like scrolling through our feed to be interrupted by Taylor Swift's enviable vacation or Khloé Kardashian's workout. It's like we're sharing that moment with them (along with their millions of other fans, of course). However, as beauty editors, we've got to say that our favourite type of pic to double tap is a snippet of a celeb's beauty routine. We love how real they get, all the way down to their face masks, waxing, and root touch-ups. Celebs—they're just like us! Keep scrolling to see some of our favourite celebrity beauty Instagrams and the tips they have taught us!
We can't get enough of Chrissy Teigen. As hilarious as she is on Twitter, she's equally organic and unforgiving on the 'gram. In this picture, she showcases her pre-shoot prep with coffee (duh) and under-eye patches. Try DHC Revitalizing Moisture Strips (£8).
Ever wonder how Kylie gets those lashes for days? Here, she reveals that her favorite pick for falsies is the Miami set (around £21) from Lily Lashes.
While we've seen makeup being "baked" under the eye many times (where you let loose powder sit on top of your concealer for 10 to 15 minutes while your body heat sets the products), the above baking done underneath the cheek contour and into the jawline by Kardashian makeup artist Joyce Bonelli was a game changer for us. Consider our baking method rebooted.
Zendaya says that her brow guru was able to achieve these brows without any makeup? "Brow down," indeed.
Demi Lovato and Ashley Benson are among the many celebs who tout Coco White, a teeth-whitening system using oil pulling, on Instagram (as brand sponsors, perhaps?), so we're intrigued as to whether this method really does spruce up your pearly whites. Coconut oil fixes everything, right?
Jessica Alba is a giver. She gives through her company, The Honest Company, which prides itself in forming charitable partnerships and protecting families and the planet. But if we're really being honest here, she also gives by posting next-level makeup tutorials that teach us how to achieve all kinds of beauty looks, like the smoky eye above.
Oftentimes when we clip our hair back while doing our makeup, we get that annoying crease on both sides, front and center. When we spotted this picture from Kate Hudson, we noticed her adorable bow clips around (£5), which happen to be pads that protect your hair from any clip-induced kinks.
While Gisele Bündchen's veggie-heavy, ultra-organic diet may not be top of list of health resolutions in 2016, her frequent Instagram posts of drinking coconut water straight from a giant coconut with a straw makes us want to send away for a case stat. (Hey, if it means we'll look like that, we're willing to try it.)
An eyebrow wax while practicing a little light yoga (or whatever it is this pose involves)? We love how candid Goop gets.
