by Facetune Team / August 1, 2021

From trendsetters to beauty divas to everyday selfie aficionados, Instagram is the perfect playground for showcasing beauty. Since 82% of women say that social media platforms like Instagram drive trends, IG is a prime resource for finding wonderful, inspiring content from the world of beauty.

Your Selfies have never looked so good.

But even if you’re pushing the envelope of what’s possible in the beauty realm, nobody’s going to see your awesome content without the right hashtags. Let’s dig into why you need beauty hashtags on Instagram, our ultimate list of hashtags, and three good examples of beauty hashtags in the wild.

Why bother with beauty hashtags?

Whether you’re scrolling through Insta to catch up on the latest trends or you want to see your friend’s styles this week, you’re probably following certain hashtags — for selfies, for example, or dating, culture, makeup, etc. — to find the content you love.

Problem is, IG is so popular that it’s hard to get people to notice your latest selfie in their feed. No matter how cool your new eyeshadow palette is, without the right hashtags, your pics are going to float away in the abyss.

Nobody wants that, right? So make the most of Instagram’s 30-hashtag limit by choosing the best hashtags!

Beauty hashtags also help you:

  • Connect your content with a specific theme, community, or topic.
  • Find more followers. People don’t have to follow you to see your content if they’re following a particular hashtag. Cool, huh?
  • Get more likes, shares, and comments.
  • Keep your finger on the pulse of trending looks.

Of course, there’s an art to hashtags. You should use a mix of popular and branded hashtags so enough people can find you (and so you can have a little #fun without turning off your followers).

So, let’s say you’ve created an awesome selfie in Facetune2’s selfie editor app but you’re not sure which beauty hashtags to use when you go to post it. We’ve got you covered, friend: Check out these 300+ hashtags to inspire your next beauty selfie.

Sometimes less is more. Yeah, Instagram gives you up to 30 hashtags, but if you’re just pasting in a bunch of meaningless junk, it’s better to use fewer hashtags. We like this post by Aesop because it uses a mix of general beauty hashtags as well as more brand-specific hashtags.

First of all: WOW. Is this hair legit or what?

Once you get over the unfair gorgeousness of this pic, you’ll see that Color Chameleon uses plenty of specific, unique hashtags that complement its content perfectly.

Who says girls get to have all the fun? Guys can totally add beauty hashtags to their selfies to pull in more likes. Whether you’re going all-in on false lashes and glitter or you’re rocking your latest tat, it’s easy to post cool beauty selfies as a dude. Just ask Jeff Logan.

The bottom line for Instagram beauty hashtags
