Whenever I scroll through Instagram, I constantly stop and wonder how that model achieved such a dewy glow, what lip color that content creator is wearing, or how that world traveler always has flawless foundation. So I thought to myself: “why not ask them,” and thanks to my own luck, they answered. If you’re interested in how my favorite Instagram influencers slay all day, then keep on reading!
Dani does it all: Not only is she a model, she is also a founder of Lady Ballerz – a community based on bringing women together through basketball. Her top three makeup favorites are the RMS Beauty Living Luminizer ($38) , the Cle De Peau Concealer Stick ($70), and the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel ($22).
Globe trotter, USC student, and model Maddie Marlow is constantly serving up some major natural makeup inspo. In order to achieve such a flawless finish, she can’t live without her go-to’s: Benefit Cosmetics’ Gimme Brow ($24), Laura Mercier’s Lip Pencil in Potpourri ($25), and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30).
Born and raised in Australia, this world traveler is both a psychology student and model. To get her sought after glow, she wears the Two Faced Sunny Bunny Bronzer ($30), the Mac Soft and Gentle Highlighter ($34), and the Nars Concealer stick ($25).
Photographer, writer, and content creator Karly always knows how to slay. To get her classic golden look, she swears to never leave the house without her Pomegranate Burt’s Bee’s Chapstick ($3.29) and L’Oreal Spice Lipstick ($4.50). She “loves to layer them for the perfect pop of deep rich color.” She covets her Ulta Rose Gold eye shadow palette ($20) and her Maybelline Volume Express Waterproof Mascara ($7)!
Fashion killer and NYU student Caitlyn Cook does it all: while balancing a full course load full of marketing and fashion courses, she manages to exercise daily, eat well, and always look flawless while doing so. In order to achieve her quick and easy makeup look, she swears by these three products: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30), Anastasia’s Brow Definer ($23), and her Tarteist Mascara ($23).
This influencer is truly one of a kind: Alexandra is a professional ballerina turned wellness activist. And…there’s more! She’s a yoga instructor, dancer, travel connoisseur, and more. To stay glowy through it all, she raves about these three products: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Unifant Tinted Lotion (£12.16), Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($24), Becca Cosmetics Highlighter in Opal ($38).
Los Angeles Native Anya is a fitness and beauty guru. There’s never a moment where her skin is not clear and her makeup isn’t on point. How does she achieve such an airbrushed appearance, you ask? With these three products: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer ($45), Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Pale Pink ($29), and Becca Highlighter in Champagne Pop ($38).
Singer-Songwriter and fashion guru Sydney Bakst always glows from within. Not only does she have a kick-ass talent and sing like an angel, she really knows her way around the makeup world. She can’t imagine living without her Glossier Priming Moisturizer ($22) under her makeup: she says “it makes for a great base underneath makeup and protects my pale ass skin. Been using it for a while and it doesn’t clog pores or look greasy!” She follows up her primer with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30), which she uses to spot conceal and cover her under-eyes: “it looks completely natural, isn’t too cakey or heavy, and blends like a dream.” To finish, she loves her Chanel Soleil De Tan ($50), where she blends it into her cheekbones and upper forehead for a natural, bronzed glow!
