Time to get relevant

Charlotte Tillbury is not only a great make-up artist, but she’s also a great Instagrammer. Under the profile, @ctilburymakeup, she promotes her own makeup line, launched only a few years ago.

Test your engagement skills

Moving into the brands’ territory, Benefit teaches one or two things about how to look good without spending a fortune, but also about how to engage your followers…without spending a fortune. The brand’s preferred Instagram tactic is creating engagement with their followers. To do so, Benefits invites followers to tag friends, creates cross-promotions, makes recurrent use of reposts all while promoting their products. It’s a fine art, we tell you. Just like the art of makeup. Check out their US account @benefitcosmeticsus, or any of their other countries’ accounts.

Get your nails into your Instagram feed

Here’s some inspiration from the country that puts a spin on everything: Japan. Hana is a nail artist with a really funky style. Her account, @hana4, displays some absolutely fantastically crazy miniature masterpieces and mixes them in a delightful way to create a cohesive Instagram feed. What can you learn from it besides how to paint your nails to match your girl boss style? How to tailor your Insta feed and play the hashtag game by the book.

Disrupt the normal feed

If you never want to have a bad hair day or a bad Instagram day, follow Chris Mcmillan @mrchrismcmillan. His approach to Instagram strategy is truly a funk and a half, with loads of haircut ideas and tons of stuff fluff about celebrities. He’s always on the move and always on trend, spotting new ones before they emerge. So, for a touch of fabulous and a disruptive take on the Instagram aesthetics game and caption play, follow Chris. It’s just what a girl boss needs at the end of the day.
