It’s totally OK to admit you’ve been mindlessly scrolling through TikTok. (Honestly, who hasn’t?) And while we can’t get enough of the dance numbers, skits and lip sync masterpieces, the social platform also happens to be a fantastic source for fashion and beauty inspo. Whether it’s a new colorful eye look challenge or ways to replicate your fave TV show into your style, we’ve rounded up 16 accounts to keep on your radar for when you need some fresh ideas.
Best for TV Character Looks
Abby Roberts (@abbyrartistry) has plenty of beauty how-tos like how to do your own lashes or freckles.

Whether she’s turning into Walter White from Breaking Bad or Joe Exotic from Tiger King, her looks will have you doing a double-take.
Best for Skincare Recommendations
If you ever see CeraVe and The Ordinary products floating around the social platform, chances are Hyram (@skincarebyhyram) had a hand in making them some of the go-to beauty brands to add to your skincare routine. Whether you have oily, sensitive or acne-prone skin, the TikToker has a few recommendations for you. Plus we can’t get enough of when he reacts to his followers or celebrity skincare routines.
Best for Playing with Bold Color
While some influencers might shy away from looking at the comments, Dez Hopkins (@dezhopkins) embraces them and gets cool looks out of them. She leads us through every step down to make it easy for you to mimic the look. Regardless of which vid you click on, her excitement to try the requests for the first time is enough to hit the follow button.

Best for Aesthetic Looks
Have a specific aesthetic? Chances are Alexa Jade (@the.navarose) tried and tested it (and she can pull off just about any style). If you’re into cottagecore, the soft girl look or monochrome, to name a few, Jade has some options for you to try. The TikToker also adds DIY into her looks like upgrading old clothes that use to belong to her uncle.
Best for Pop Culture-Inspired Outfits
While we can’t get enough of Janice Glimmer (@janiceglimmer) combining zodiac signs, old films and current trends into her fashion looks, and we’re always excited to see what outfits she pairs with her mom’s. Inspired by popular TV shows and films, the duo we didn’t know we needed (and have us ready to call our own moms to start a fashion moment).
Best for Unique Product Reviews
If you constantly rely on the reviews before adding any product in your shopping cart, chances are Victoria Lyn (@victorialyn) might’ve tried it for you. From popular Kosas products to Disney Princess-themed skincare, Lyn gives you a close look at every product from start to finish.
Best for Affordable Outfit Hauls
When a site’s images of an outfit just don’t convince you enough to buy it, let Denise Mercedes (@denisemmercedes) give you a better visual representation. The influencer tries different brands like Amazon, Fashion Nova and Boohoo, to name a few. The best part? Mercedes even has another fellow TikToker to show off the same look (and break the stigma that one style of clothing is only right for one body size).
Best for Modest Styling
Beauty influencer and entrepreneur Zahraa (@zahraa_hberro) has a few beauty and fashion tips for you without leaving the app. If you need to clean up your brows or learn how to style your hijab, she has you covered.
