Here are 5 beauty influencers who really make us glow.
Of course we had to kick this list off with Cassandra! A native New Zealander, Cassandra is the queen of the makeup haul. Inspired by watching endless hours of Youtube videos, she decided to become a beauty blogger in 2013.
Fast forward to now, and her makeup and beauty blog is a serene centre for exploring the hottest products, with reviews, hauls, tips, tricks galore – you name it, Cassandra has reviewed it. Offering the odd lifestyle post too, just like this oh-so-satisfying How To Marie Kondo Your Makeup post, her writing style is endlessly enjoyable and her fans can’t get enough.
Cassandra’s ability to feature and support NZ brands really makes her a special read for our student community looking for local brands, but as an avid online shopper you’ll see lots of international brands from the US, UK and further afield too. A true champion of offering honest, insightful reviews on everyday accessible brands, we love how Cassandra’s passion helps others find the perfect makeup and beauty products for their lifestyle.
One of the biggest beauty influencers on Instagram, Sara is queen of the Australian style community. Launching her blog Harper and Harley in 2008, she has grown her huge following over a decade with a unique recipe for flawless, understated yet sophisticated looks.
Carving a niche within the ‘less is more’ philosophy across fashion, has made her the biggest natural beauty influencer in Australia. Sara has become the poster girl for elevated minimalism, working with global brands such as Estée Lauder, YSL and more.
Sarah uses her platform to promote timeless products for glowy skin that you can always rely on to be the star of any outfit, like her signature Head To Toe Neutrals. But she also isn’t afraid to experiment with a bold lip or innovative eye. The perfect follow for finding that date night smokey eye inspiration, fresh-faced weekend skin or power meeting lip.
A champion of mental health in the fashion world, Sarah’s ability to span the gap between the beauty and wellness influencers makes her well worth a follow.
Better known as Shaaanxo to her 3.1 million Youtube subscribers, Shannon Harris is the leading superstar in fresh, fierce beauty looks. An award-winning make up artist, blogger, vlogger and Instagram influencer, she has worked with fashion giants like YSL Beauty, Chanel Makeup and Estee Lauder Cosmetics – so you know you’ll be getting some of the hottest insights straight from her posts.
Shannon demonstrates how bright bold colours can combine to make eye-catching, statement looks, as well as showcasing the power of muted tones. She even shared her actual Wedding Makeup look that she did herself…on her wedding day! Showcasing a stunning pale pink lip that’s a real showstopper.
Offering inspo on all things lashes and brows too, Shannon is forever on fleek, and her secrets are definitely worth knowing!
Sustainable beauty influencers don’t get much cooler than Stephanie Lange. An Aussie native now living in Ireland, Stephanie provides cruelty free fierceness that radiates old school rock and roll, with a sprinkle of glamour.
A leading voice for clean beauty influencers, she has heaps of helpful advice on how to be more mindful with your cosmetics choices both on her Youtube channel and her Instagram feed. Plus she’s a strong advocate for presenting real skin, with real flaws, whilst also showcasing products that give real results too. Perfect for those of us looking to maintain our green beauty routine on a budget, or if you are looking for vegan beauty influencers that deliver.
We love Stephanie!
