Let’s be real here — a lot of Instagram is focused on those who are 30 and under. But women 40-plus like fashion and beauty trends, too.

And honestly, watching a 20-something apply their antiaging skin-care routine while taking a filtered video isn’t helping us out at all. I make no apologies for wanting to see barefaced ladies my own age who aren’t afraid to show their unfiltered makeup and skin-care regimens.

I also want to see women closer to my age styling some trending pieces and classic outfits. There is a huge want and need for women 40 and older on social media, and if you’ve been looking for some women closer to your age for inspiration, search no further. Here are five women to follow on Instagram for fashion and beauty tips.
