5 Inspiring Instagram Accounts to Follow

Despite the constant changes and introducing the algorithm, Instagram is still at the top when it comes to my favourite social media platforms. 

I follow just shy of 650 accounts – so quite a few, but here are some of my favourites that have inspired me over the past few months…

Sallyokelly – Sally

One thing I love about Sally’s photography is how recognisable it is, she goes against the norm of crisp white backgrounds and injects colour into her product shots/ flatlays – and it really works. Sally’s profile combines her stunning flatlays (usually focused on makeup and beauty) with lifestyle shots such as the sweetest pictures of her puppy – who also has her own Instagram account! Sally inspires me to follow a style of photography I love and to stick with it – being unique is definitely a good thing.

Gemellisx – Gemma

Not only will you find the cutest pictures of her little baby Reuben, Gemma also shares the best makeup looks, flatlays and crisp clear product shots. Her photography skills are unreal, and inspire me to know my own DSLR a little better! I just spotted on twitter that she has picked up a new camera lens and I’m actually excited to see all of the new images she will be sharing!
Hellohimawarii – Mika

If you love all things beauty then prepare yourself for Mika’s amazing makeup/ skincare collection before you take a look at her profile. Mika’s product photography is just spot on, and I love that she adds a bigger description than most with mini product reviews – it’s so helpful! Mika’s profile has inspired me to put more time and effort into my Instagram, why post just a picture of a lipstick when I can do a mini review of it at the same time!? Mika’s photography is clear and light too, which is always my aim, not one picture looks out of sync!

Aimeysherwood – Aimey

Another gal with a makeup collection I envy! Aimey’s instagram is actually beautiful – think gorgeous flowers, makeup shots and cupcakes/ sweet treats that look too good to eat. I love how Aimey’s profile looks as a whole, she seems to stick to the same filter/ editing style and it looks fab! Aimey’s consistently good content inspires me to always try and get the best shot I can!

Stylelobster – Emily

Firstly, Emily is just stunning and my complete fitness inspo, her profile is a mix of travel, beauty and fashion related content. I love how much personality she injected into her profile, and if you want a good laugh then check out her Instagram stories, they are hilarious! Emily has just gone full time with her blog, the quality of her content and the amount of effort she puts into everything is incredible, inspiring to say the least!

Let me know who is inspiring you on Instagram at the minute! There is also a similar post I published back in may with more Instagram accounts that I love (just incase you need even more inspo)…

    Even though I'm really annoyed of Instagram at the moment (despite a public account, my hashtags don't work and a good part of my followers don't see my posts, which means that I have lost more than half my followers within the last 3 months and Instagram don't do anything about it), I still really enjoy it as a follower and Emily's account (Stylelobster) is one of my favourites at the moment!http://fannyanddailybeauty.com
