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

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

They hypnotized me.

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

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

Beauty brands and makeup enthusiasts, I present to you some of the world’s most highly compelling makeup artists and influencers that you’ve got to connect with:

  1. Nikkie de Jager-Drossaers
  2. Chloe Morello
  3. Danielle Marcan
  4. Eloise Dutton
  5. Renée

Let’s check them out.

Nikkie de Jager-Drossaers

Outstanding globally recognized makeup artist.

If your world revolves around beauty and makeup, then you absolutely cannot be missing in action from this influencer’s follower list.

From The Netherlands but with a very impressive American accent, Nikkie is your lovable down-to-earth girl with well-refined makeup art skills.

In the online space, Nikkie is a makeup star.

Her influence exploded on the internet with her viral “power of makeup” video series where she does transformative half-face makeup looks.

Her signature video series is so big that she’s had a-list celebs like Kim Kardashian featured in her videos.

Yup, she’s a big deal.  A big 12-million-followers kinda deal.

Her 12-million-subscriber YouTube channel rocks just as much as her Instagram account.  Her biggest video hit yet is her “the power of makeup” video which drew in over 40 million views.

Some of her big-name paid partnerships include Allure.

Did I mention that her makeup artistry is outstanding?

Chloe Morello

Funny everyday makeup enthusiast, Chloe Morella.

From Australia but currently based in Los Angeles, Chloe will inspire you to glow with some good laughs in the process.

She’ll help you brighten up your Mondays with red lipstick.  She’ll dare you with the smokiest colorful eyes and somehow still keep the whole look somewhat natural.

And what’s beauty without skincare?  Chloe is also your skincare bae.

You’ll find her glowing on her 2.71 million subscriber Youtube channel where she shares some of her routines and tips.  Her top makeup video yet is her “16 best makeup and beauty hacks 2017” with 12 million views.

Danielle Marcan

Danielle Marcan: Beauty & makeup Influencer | Not bothered putting lipstick on

Playful eye-rolling unconventional natural beauty guru, Danielle.

All it takes is watching one of her makeup videos to capture your attention.

Danielle’s quirky personality makes her content stand out – beyond the ordinary makeup vids that are flying all over the internet.

Even though she doesn’t have a presence on YouTube, her Instagram profile is packed with makeup videos.

You certainly get a feel of natural looks with mostly nude lips from her feed as she doesn’t go over the top.  However, she’ll turn up the dramatic eyes with the occasional bold lips.

Whether she’s making a statement with her makeup looks or her playful attitude, she knows how to buzz her audience with loads of organic content – boasting an outstanding engagement rate of over 10%.

Danielle features a wide range of products in her looks, delivering short and sweet quality video content.

Eloise Dutton

Eloise XO: Instagram Makeup Expert | Sugar skull inspired makeup style

Super catchy makeup girl, Eloise.

In Dubai, Eloise is one of our makeup influencers that you can’t get enough of.

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 product. 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.

On her growing YouTube channel, you’ll find some of her top videos like “full face of fake vs real makeup” which is a pretty valuable review.
