Behind the scenes of beauty shoots, instant unboxing of the latest products and makeup tips round the clock – just take our money already, makeup artists of Snapchat! Here are our favourite face painters.
Remember that girl who filmed that viral video about getting rid of dark circles using red lipstick? She’s the one! You might remember this New Yorker from her video tutorials at Birchbox – she’s now graduated to YouTube, although it’s her Snapchat we love most for its insider access to all the latest beauty events and visits to cosmetic brand offices (more fun to watch than you’d think).
She often posts Snaps of her getting her makeup done by celebrity artists and, having recently moved to L.A., is all about sharing a slice of the Hollywood life, SoulCycle and all. Bonus: Deepica is of Indian origin so if your skin tone is similar to hers, you can safely assume that most of the makeup she uses will work for you, too!

So reads Manny’s YouTube description. We don’t know many people, online or IRL, who can turn musings about the mundane to sheer entertainment as well as he can. His makeup game is strong, too – ‘pretty frikking sickening,’ by his admission, and we tend to agree. You can vote on which video you’d like him to make next and who you’d like him to collaborate with, and he’ll listen, too. Meet your new BFF.
Dubai-based Huda’s Snaps are a tour through the best stuff on her dressing table, screenshot-worthy makeup looks you can refer to later, and the best of Dubai’s malls, introducing you to brands you might not have heard of. Like her look? She’s got her own brand of lashes, too. Her 3-year-old daughter and gorgeous sister make cameo appearances, every once in a while, with adorable results.

If you follow this beauty, travel and lifestyle vlogger on YouTube, you’ll know that she loves using makeup to transform into celebrities, Indian actresses included. She’s not a daily Snapchatter but when she does post a Story, it’s always exciting – unwrapping brand new makeup and creating a diverse range of makeup looks that are always fun to watch. She’s also big on hair, so you can expect a good dose of #hairspiration on the go.
This Dutch girl began her YouTube channel NikkieTutorials when she spent a weekend in bed watching The Hills and wanted to recreate the girls’ looks from the show, and soon, it became Netherlands’ most subscribed beauty channel. She then went on to train in hair and makeup professionally. Why should you follow her? Because it’s like hanging out with a fellow makeup lover all day. She’ll read the comments from her videos, reply to them (diss the haters), do mini swatches not just raving about the products and leave you hanging, but gives their shade names so you can look them up, follows her cute dog around, and plays Pokemon on her Nintendo in her free time.
