Best hashtags for makeup Instagram posts

Check out this fantastic posy by Shaddows! Although I haven’t been that huge on Instagram lately, this post will be super helpful when I get back to posting properly.


Hashtags make a really big difference to the engagement you receive on posts; when a lot of work has gone into creating a makeup look, likes and comments are ideal.

More popular hashtags are seen by more people but drown very quickly as new posts are published with the same hashtag. Posts with less popular hashtags will remain at the top of the hashtag feed for longer, therefore, seen by a smaller amount of people over a longer period of time. It is probably a good idea to use a mixture of these hashtags.

Below are the hashtags that get lots of engagement. Be careful to only use up to 30 hashtags or the whole caption will be deleted when the picture is posted. Also, try not to over use the same hashtags or you risk being shaddowbanned where your pictures do not show up on any hashtag feeds at…

Happy Sunday Cheeleaders, I hope 2018 has been kind to you so far. It feels like it has been ages since I wrote a proper post as I was getting in to the routine of posting every day sometimes twice in one day.

For me, this year I want change. In terms of the blog I am looking to blog better, more effectively and I read something interesting which I can’t find the link to share with you all but basically it was saying choose one or two social media platforms and focus on them.

Social media updates

So much exciting newness going on, to the point where I have just used a word that doesn’t even exist. 

First up, Macquillagewithleilani has a Facebook page! Please feel free to pop over and give it a like, it would be very much appreciated. 

Also, I’ve switched my Instagram profile from personal to business. So far I can tell from the features that this option makes it far easier to be contacted rather than just putting your email address in the bio and hope people have a photographic memory when they draft up an email to you. Other features include insights and statistics on new posts and followers. I’m a huge statistics person, so this appeals to me greatly. 

Thank you again to my readers, both loyal and new. Without readers, there would be no purpose to blogging. 

Love and (high)light✌
