There seems to be this great divide between industry icons--they're either seasoned platform artists, or part of the new wave of Instagram influencers who climbed the social media ladder to stardom. It's not always easy to find artists who are are well-known for both.

Ian Michael Black is one of the rare few who is an expert at engaging an audience and commanding a huge following no matter the platform: be it stage work, session styling, livestreaming or Instagram content.

We love following Black, who is an Aveda Global Artistic Director, on Instagram because he not only shares the beautiful results of his photoshoots, he also shares Instagram-worthy images of the process on his page--namely, his perfect foil placements and application precision.

In this gallery, we take a look at some of Black's foil artistry that his 60,000+ followers would agree are swoon-worthy, satisfying and beautiful.
