I have a confession to make.  I fell victim to the side effects of some of the world’s most entrancing beauty & makeup influencers.

My mission to gather all the goodies on these influencers for you quickly turned into hours of consuming their content.

They hypnotized me.

So much that I accidentally found myself at a drugstore buying a lipstick I convinced myself that I can’t go another day without.

This is how powerful they are.  But they deliver on extremely valuable content that you’d be missing out if you don’t follow them.

Super catchy makeup girl, Eloise.

In fact, before we go any further, let me warn you.  Her Instagram profile is addictive. Creative video teasers are splashed everywhere and you can’t help but click through to watch her videos.

Like you can’t help but wonder what that gooey purple stuff is on the makeup brush.  Until you hit the play button and she impresses you with an interesting face mask.

She certainly delivers on expectations all the way.

Her quick makeup look videos feature some interesting products.  “That’s so cool” kinda products. Like the instant brow tattoos and the teeth whitening strips.  At this point, these products would be in your shopping basket already.

Without her makeup on, Eloise is a sweet inviting girl.  As she works her makeup magic and transforms her face, she becomes this dramatic statement.  You’re literally wowed – in a great way, of course.

From big bold eyes with shimmering shadows to plump nude lips – Eloise knows how to keep her followers fascinated.
