When it comes to beauty and skincare tips, no one knows their stuff better than Instagram beauty influencers. They’ve earned their ‘influencer’ title by sharing super-helpful beauty tips and tutorials, and their massive following is a testament as to what extent they’re slaying the beauty game. So, in case you’ve missed out and aren’t avid followers, we’re here to give you the skinny on who to watch. These bathing beauties have secrets they’re willing to share, so make sure you pay close attention and snag the ones you like best.
Best known on the internet as Zoella, this 27 year-old gal has earned the number one place on Forbes’ top beauty influencer list. Aside from her massive following on Instagram, this girl has 11.6. million You Tube subscribers as well as a wildly successful line of beauty products. It’s safe to say, when it comes to beauty, we’re highly keen on what this lady has to say, especially due to the fact that she has always been candid about her problematic skin, which is something many of us can relate to. So, when you’re having a bad skin day, and you have places to be, the best thing to do is to resort to a full-coverage, matte and non-transferable foundation. Zoella’s favorite is the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation, but the important thing is to find the right foundation that works for your skin when blemishes attack and look flawless, because, let’s face it – you have to leave the house and you have important places to be.
Aside from being a model, this girl is a total heavy hitter when it comes to beauty influencers. Now, you would expect a model to be a huge advocate of foundation, but what this girl recommends is a great tinted moisturizer with a great amount of SPF, something along the lines of Mukti Tinted Moisturizer with sunscreen, which is natural and organic – in other words, safe to use and gives the skin an amazing fresh and healthy look.
The on the runway slay-girl is more than famous for her natural and no-makeup look when off-duty. When asked about her everyday go-to makeup routine, the model discovers that all she really uses is “concealer under the eyes, on my chin and around the nose, and then always a good bronzer and a good brow. That’s my top three for every day. I love my natural freckles and just keeping a natural look. And I love mascara. And I always use a curler. With or without mascara, you always gotta curl.” She also admits that she has incredibly dry skin, so her weapon for locking in moisture is a Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Crème because it’s super-hydrating but not greasy and overwhelming.
Where there’s Bella, Kendall is inevitable. Now, you would expect a reality show star turned actress (especially one that belongs to a family full of beauty influencers like the Kardashian clan) to have a complex skincare and beauty regimen. However, according to her dermatologist, the secret to having great skin and effectively deal with your skin issues is to minimize the number of products. That’s why her skincare routine is highly simple but strict. There are no abrasive face washes, no rotating brushes, no washcloths – just a gentle face wash and hands. Kendall’s ultimate tip: wash your face often, don’t touch it and don’t pick at it. Oh, and always wear eye cream, because it’s better to be safe than sorry.
The Instagram star turned makeup mogul may be last on our list, but when it comes to glitz and glam, she definitely takes first place. One of her absolute staples are her lashes – when you think of great lashes you think Huda. Although she admits that she wears fake lashes almost all the time, which was actually triggered by the fact that she had terrible lashes, she swears by lash serums. Her ultimate secret for full and healthy lashes: mixture of two serums, but her all-time favorite is Neulash. Being aware that most girls wear mascara – after all it’s one of the essentials in every girl’s makeup bag, she highly recommends a conditioning mascara that prevents breakage – her pick is the Dior Show Maximizer, and when Huda recommends, we listen. Now, we know you’re expecting some final wisdom in the lip department, and Huda is happy to share some, and it’s quite simple – every girl needs a signature red lipstick. You can keep your variety of perfect nudes, but no girl should ever live without that perfect red shade.
