Oh to have celebrity makeup artists at your disposal every-time you have an event!

It may be a pipe dream for us mere mortals, but it doesn’t mean that we still can’t pick up some valuable tips from some of the top celebrity makeup artists. Often the MUAs share product breakdowns, recommendations and tutorials on their Instagrams.

Here are the MUAs that some of your faves rely on to get them red-carpet ready.

If we won the Lotto in the morning we would be employing Nikki Wolf, AKA Nikki Makeup. Her makeup is STUNNING!

Nikki regularly paints some of the most famous faces including Hailey Bieber, Shay Mitchell, Dua Lipa, Hailee Steinfeld and Demi Lovato to name but a few.

Nikki is known for doing a weekly Sunday Tutorial where she gives out lots of tips, so she’s well worth a follow. Her makeup skills are truly incredible.

Another celebrity makeup artist we adore is Kelsey Deenihan. Just look at her eye makeup skills on Lucy Hale above!😍

Sir John is responsible for many of Beyoncé’s most iconic beauty looks, including her makeup during her Coachella performance and her looks in “Formation”.
