From red-carpet selfies to sneak previews of some of the biggest fashion shows, celebrity Instagram accounts are a brilliant source of beauty inspiration. Instead of throwing your hair into a standard plain old bun this New Year’s Eve, get a head start on 2017 with one of these gorgeous hair and makeup looks from some of Instagram’s biggest IT girls. ‘Tis the season to get fancy after all, so let’s do this: Beauticate’s round up of the best celebrity accounts to follow for ultimate beauty goals this NYE.

The Aussie actress has had some pretty rad hair and makeup moments – and we can’t help but want to emulate them all. She’s been a redhead, a brunette, and rocked goth-red lipstick – managing to pull off each genre like a pro. One of our favourite looks on the recently married star is this – the quintessential messy low bun, elevated by the addition of a bold red lip. Talk about #beautygoals.

A-listers are some our top people to follow, and Blake Lively is no exception. She’s not only the queen of witty Instagram captions, but also offers us our daily dose of beauty inspo. Blake strayed from her classic curls with this particular half-up look at the premiere of Cafe Society, complimented by the ultimate barely there makeup look. #hairicon

With that hair and that face, the model’s Instagram beauty appeal doesn’t need explaining. We can’t get enough of this particular look on Ms Jenner: simple, yet the perfect amount of sexy and chic. Not surprisingly, her account is one of our favourites to follow – full of unique yet totally wearable beauty looks.



My signature scent just got more luminous, thank you Mr Dior! #jadoredior #thelightofgold #dior @dior

You can’t deny there is something truly beautiful about the homegrown Aussie model (that skin, those eyes, need we say more?). For all you short haired beauties, take note. Ms Worthington provides some killer, yet totally laidback styles for the party season. We’re lusting after this perfectly imperfect look on The Base founder – an inch of sea salt spray, a flick of mascara, a nude lippy and you’ll be ready to take NYE by storm. Remember: sometimes less really is more.




As the most followed person on Instagram, Selena has her look perfected to the tee. From Parisian red lips to bombshell makeup and textured waves it’s no wonder that her stream of selfies has allowed her to secure herself on the top of the Insta set. If you’re more of an updo fan when it comes to parties, try this low bun – it offers the perfect combination of boho and chic.

She’s the Instagram queen of 2016, with selfies that are a vision of sculpted cheekbones, impossibly long lashes and impeccably contoured skin. Also worth following for regular appearances from her long list of celebrity and model friends and family members (particularly model of the moment sister Bella Hadid). For a more dramatic look this NYE, try Gigi’s sleek back ‘do, paired with a brazen bright lip.

    Love Selena’s hair in this Insta, but really can’t make it look as effortless and casual as hers. Help??

      Hi Kaylie!

      We find this look works best on second-day old hair. A little bit of texture powder, and sea salt spray also works a treat! Good luck.
