7 Beauty Experts You Need to Follow on Twitter

I opened a Twitter account so that I could stalk my new crush.

I know, I know, it's wrong.

But because he tweets about everything from what he had for lunch to where he's going for happy hour, it's easy to "accidentally" bump into him with plenty of conversation fodder.

Of course, it looks a little odd if I'm only following one tweeter, which is why I'm now following these 7 beauty experts.

And let me tell you, their tweets are a lot more riveting than the stuff my future boyfriend is posting. I'm now getting daily makeup tips from Bobbi Brown; news of the latest rock star ingredient I must have in my skin care from dermatologist Katie Rodan, MD; and all kinds of inspired hairstyle ideas from celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves.

So while my crush is turning out to be more dud than stud, I'll be staying on Twitter for these beauty pros' wealth of info. Who else should I follow?
