Instagram is my favorite social media platform. The interface makes it easy to use—and knowing it’s being updated in real time makes it fun and addicting to browse. When I first downloaded the app, it wasn’t as popular as it is today. I thought to myself, “What a fun way to showcase my daily adventures and follow a few others’.” When celebrities, media platforms and bloggers created pages, it became my go-to outlet to retrieve information I was able to filter.
Here are great Instagram pages every beauty enthusiast should follow:
