Influencers are basically social media users who are well-known in a certain niche. A beauty influencer has expertise in makeup, haircare, or skincare. What sets beauty influencers apart from other social media users is the amount of people who follow them for their advice. This is because most of these influencers are ordinary women with the image of a girl-next-door hence one can instantly connect and relate to them competently.
