Most women count celebrities like Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Gisele Bundchen as their girl crushes, but as a beauty editor, I tend to find myself enthralled with budding industry professionals making a name for themselves through nothing more than the scope of social media.
Much like Shayla Mitchell, a.k.a. @MakeupShayla (on Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram), a.k.a. the next Pat McGrath (my words, not hers). Based in Los Angeles, this stunning freelance makeup artist takes to Instagram every now and then to tout the flawless finished faces of her celebrity clientele (Porsha Stewart from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Azealia Banks, Malaysia Pargo of Basketball Wives LA, comedienne Sommore), and every day to showcase her daily beauty looks along with how-to steps and a detailed list of products used. Check out a few of her recent bests.
