Why searching for your next hairstyle on Pinterest if you can find it in a famous artwork? Tapping into a trend that first hit the fashion industry, art history becomes an inspiration for amazing beauty looks in these alternative instagram accounts. Looking for makeup ideas and hair tutorials have never been so educational!
Created by London-based hair editor Rachel Gibson, this account is a true celebration of art’s ladies styles. From paintings from the 19th century to Japanese woodblock prints from the 1800s, a complete archive of art masterpieces will provide you the right inspiration for your next amazing (and timeless!) hairstyle.
2. GUCCI BEAUTY
When Gucci launched its new beauty Instagram account, last September, literally everybody talked about it. The reason? It used historical artworks sourced from various public and private collections to explore the evolving concept of beauty throughout history. The pieces of art ranged from 2000 year old Egyptian art to contemporary African American painters, and a team of art writers collaborated with the brand to provide captions that detailed the provenance and the context of each work, as well as the ideals of that historical period.
Created by Chris Rellas, this creative account adds fashion items to iconic artworks. Although his focus is mainly on fashion, he also makes some amazing incursion into beauty: prepare to see the “Femme à mi-corps couchée sur un divan” by Joseph-Désiré Cour wearing the exact makeup by Peter Philips seen in Chanel SS14 fashion show; or Petrus Christus’ “Portrait of a Young Girl” embellished with eye makeup from Prabal Gurung fall 17 runway.
4. YUKA MIKA
This makeup artist caused sensation on the Internet because she turned herself into a picture-perfect replica of the Mona Lisa using only foundation and shadows, and shared the process in a 27 second time-lapse video. Since then, she posted on Instagram other art-inspired makeup tutorials, such as the Da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine or the “Girl with a Pearl Earring”
If you are into surrealism, you definitely can’t miss the trippy (and fractals!) makeup creations showcased in this account. They are all made by Yoon, a visual illusion artist from Korea that studied art at the University and then decided that faces and bodies will be her favorite canvas. Dalì would be proud of her (but she paid homage to different artists, such as Van Gogh )
