About Sydney Szramowski

Many Instagram beauty gurus show their followers how to subtly apply makeup to achieve the most natural-looking results. Sydney Szramowski is definitely not one of those beauty gurus. Her @sydn4sty Instagram feed is filled with bright, glittery colors that fully envelope her eyes and lips—and sometimes her entire face! The wildly creative designs she concocts are perfect eye candy for Instagram beauty fans, which explains how she has amassed nearly 100K followers. Whether she’s transformed herself entirely into a strawberry for Halloween, gone full rainbow for #pride, or drawn masterfully intricate patterns with only eyeliner, the 26-year-old makes sure her look always stands out.
