The SFX makeup world has seen serious growth in the last few years, and with new shows like Glow Up on Netflix the makeup craze doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. So, we wanted to compile a list of 20 SFX MUAs who you should go and follow to zhuzh up your IG feed in 2020. So, in no particular order, here are 20 SFX MUAs for 2020!
@makeup_creation_mayula may have a small following but we don’t think that will last for long, because she’s doing BIG looks! Some of her looks also incorporate killer headpieces to send the look right over the top.
@vlasovajuliaart recently participated in a bodypainting festival in Equatorial Guinea, and just… WOW! The looks she created were breathtaking.
A lot of looks from @artbeautychaos make you scratch your head – in a good way. Her use of shadow and highlight really trick your brain.
@brush.n.horn walks a fine line between dream and nightmare and it’s absolutely glorious!
Although all the looks that @violet.grass creates are awesome, the real show stoppers are her chest murals.
@kennetkatze also attended the EG Bodypainting Festival. Her ability to use flat paint to give something texture and movement is simply astounding!
@fancyflutie really enjoys a good skull/skeleton look, but damn if she doesn’t make each one marvelous in its own way! This mint look is just too cool.
Another MUA that walks the fantasy horror line is @ambroziiafairytale . This Beetlejuice look is simple but PERFECT. Beetlejuice would be proud of this look. Beetlejuice! (You just have to say it three times!)
@madykennedy has a gift for optical illusions and all of her looks are different and fun! I don’t know about you, but this snake look is enough to make me panic!
I love to see artists supporting artists and @indigotohell does that with this look inspired by @mariefrancoart .
@kirplusten recreates famous characters. Just scrolling through her instagram is satisfying as each look gets two photos with a timelapse video between!
This spider look from @kosmickatie makes your skin crawl just a little. The neon matching with the hair was a fantastic idea!
@facudiblasi has optical illusion looks that will have you doing double takes!
There’s nothing better than a good story and @edhel_sfx delivers. Each look has 3 posts and a whole story unfolds.
This ice queen look from @makeupbyrups is chillingly good! All of her looks have a certain edge to them that works EVERY time.
@ghourhees hits the perfect balance with her horror glam looks. This floral skeleton is a great example of that!
The collection of the iconic characters that @cuthberfx transformed into should be all the explanation you need to follow this page.
This collection from @caykeface shows how broad her skillset is. And as a 90s girl, that Lisa Frank look in the middle is everything I never knew I always needed!
@thatgingerymua hasn’t been on IG long, but is OBVIOUSLY not new to the MUA world. Her looks are super polished and fun!
All of the looks on the @khaleesiisaa page are amazing, but her drip looks have my jaw on tha dang floor!
As a bonus, @daedric.models features many different SFX MAUs, so it’s a great place to look for new MUAs that are killing the game!
We hope you’ve enjoyed finding a few new MUAs to add to your IG feed. If you have a favorite SFX MUA that you think we should be on the lookout for in 2020 let us know. And while you’re at it check out some of our other fantastic features on beauty!
