Skin-Care Influencers To Follow For #Shelfie Organization Inspiration
Even though we live in a post Marie-Kondo world, and encourage any and all purging of joyless things — we have to admit that large piles of stuff (particularly skin care) makes us feel things, especially if they’re color-coordinated. There’s something satisfying about seeing a dozen or so aesthetically pleasing oils, serums and cleansers lined up on a mirrored vanity or tossed just so on a tray. Obviously we’re not alone, as evidenced by the slew of product-focused skin-care Instagram accounts that have mastered the art of the #shelfie. We’ve rounded up our favorite of the bunch ahead, feel free to follow, screenshot and copy.
A skin-care maximalist with a talent for making a hoard of skin-care products look cohesive (we suspect it might be all the pink), @dirtyboysgetclean has photographing his stash for the ‘gram down to a science. He isn’t afraid to admit he prefers Glossier to La Mer while still appreciating the aesthetics of both, and he reviews many of the indie brands you’re seeing all over your feed.
Brooklyn-based makeup artist @ohuprettythings is known for her moody beauty shots and making every product look irresistibly luxe regardless of the price. She consistently rounds up her faves while also sharing shelfie shots that’ll make you want to re-organize your stash into color-coordinated groups.
If clutter drives you crazy follow @overglowededit, who spotlights a few products at a time on her feed. She also shares full-length reviews and best-of lists on her blog Overglowed Edit, along with helpful skin-care tips — like the reasons you might be breaking out (spoiler: it’s probably environmental).
Obsessed with French beauty and healthy skin, @beaute.defile (which translates to beauty runway) photographs her skin-care collection and shares her morning and night routines. We’d still follow her even if she said nothing at all — if only to stare at all the pretty pictures.
For dreamy, sun-drenched photos follow @sharmtoaster, a skin-care obsessed beauty enthusiast with an orangey-pink feed. You’ll find a mix of mini product reviews and enough product inspo to keep you shopping for all eternity.
In addition to lush shots of her favorite products (which also features cute accessories you’ll want to add to cart), Cierra Taylor (known on the interwebs as @laviedefawn) shares parts of her personal journey and offers self-care tips, too.
If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to live in a millenial pink dreamscape where the light is always perfect, then you should follow @sortofobsessed. Whether she’s sharing her “Confessions of Being a Skin Care Junkie” (two words: skin-care fridge), or her night-time skin-care routine (the first step is Kiehl’s Cleansing Oil), somehow each photo is more mesmerizing than the last.
