Idea for Instagram Posts

My ‘10 Blog Post Ideas‘ posts are usually quite popular however I’ve now also ran out of ideas of posts so instead thought I would share some ideas as to what you can share on Instagram. I think it’s quite important to keep a regular stream of content going on Instagram if you are trying to build it as part of your blog and in order to do this lots of bloggers (myself included) take lots of photos in a day and then post them throughout the week. I often write a list of what I want to photograph and thought I would share some of my list today. Remember you can mix up the different ideas in flat lays and other interesting compositions, I’m not at all an Instagram pro but heres a few idea

1) The Nail Polish you are wearing
2) Favourite lipstick combination
3) Favourite Fragrance
4) What’s inside your makeup bag
5) Makeup of the day flat lay
6) Evening Skincare
7) Recent purchases
8) Current Favourites
9) Makeup Selfie
10) New palette close up
11) Makeup Storage
12) Favourite pamper products
13) Go-to eyeshadow look for the evenings
14) The after shot post hairdressers
15) Collections (eg. Lipstick, nail polishes and blush)
16) Product results

1) Outfit of the day
2) Collection (eg. Shoes, Handbags, glasses)
3) Items that catch your eye in store

Everything else…
