When it comes to beauty and grooming, Instagram can become a bit of a selfie-overload or just one big advert. There are those accounts though, that are truly inspirational, unique and offer up a wealth of useful information. From the brow expert to the French editor, and the account dedicated to all things beards, here are our top five beauty and grooming Instagram accounts you should follow.

Sara Rostrup is the official L’Oréal makeup artist for Norway, so she knows her stuff. She has a relaxed, effortless approach to beauty, which shows through her Instagram account full of behind-the-scenes model shots, her current favourite products, and makeup application tips.
