If she's good enough for Kate Moss, obviously celebrity favourite makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury was going to be more than good enough for TikTok. Having trained under industry legend Mary Greenwell, Charlotte is super watchable, plus her beauty wisdom is top quality.

9. @mualesandro

TikToks by Alessandro of @mualesandro are seriously addictive. He's always trying out celebrity hero products including Kourtney Kardashian's favourite foundation – plus his thumbnails alone are so intriguing, we can help but sit back and watch.

Granted, journalist and broadcaster Sali Hughes isn't technically a makeup artist, but she still deserves a special mention on account of her wealth of unbelievably useful industry knowledge. Her eyeliner bank card hack? Complete gamechanger.
