32 Edmonton Girls Who Are Absolutely Killing It On Instagram Right Now

Do it for the 'gram.

Any girl who takes Instagram as seriously as I do will tell you that there's a lot more to it than tagging your friends in funny memes and creeping on the Kardashians. Oh, and stalking cute boys, of course. For a lot of us, the best part of Instagram is actually stalking other girls who are just as ordinary as us!

The city of Edmonton has a massive population, and along with the massive population comes a lot of creative talent. Everything from makeup artists and content creators to fashion fiends and foodies can be found here, and the best part is, with social media apps like Instagram, we're able to follow and creep on all of them from the comfort of our own bed.

Sure, apps like Pinterest are great for outfit, food, and makeup inspiration, but why not support local talent, and borrow some inspo from them? Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, after all. It's 2018, and I am of the opinion that it's officially time for Instagram to be recognized as an art form.

Many people don't take into consideration the amount of work these girls put in to keep their profiles looking this perfect; you constantly have to be creating content, styling yourself for photos, coming up with witty captions, and, of course, bugging the people in your life to take a million pictures of you on a daily basis.

This list is in no specific ranking order, we simply created it so give some talented Edmonton ladies the appreciation they seriously deserve. Take a look, borrow some inspiration and (hopefully) follow some of our cities' most creative content creators:
