Beauty brands on Instagram have become increasingly recognizable due to a significant push in the growth of the beauty industry as a whole. According to Business Insider, beauty has become a $500 billion a year industry, due to a few trends. One of which is the use of social media platforms, specifically Instagram.
Since influencer marketing has grown rapidly over the past few years, beauty brands are taking advantage of stepping outside of traditional marketing and are using different influencers’ social media platforms to reach a variety of demographics.
Today, some of the most well-known Instagram accounts are promoting not only their own beauty brands but also featuring other products in their posts. Influencers like James Charles have made themselves globally relevant through the promotion of makeup and other beauty products on Instagram.
Billionaire and pop-culture icon Kylie Jenner has her own established line of beauty products, one where she frequently is promoting on Instagram and even uses Instagram to highlight others acting as a beauty ambassador.
So outside of the major celebrities, what are other beauty brands, of a variety of sizes, using Instagram for? Below we’ll take a look at five beauty brands with ambassador programs to help increase sales through Instagram.
