I have been going live on Instagram about twice a week with a few of my favorite LA-based influencers talking about how they got started as an influencer and touching on a topic of their choice. The talks were about 20-minutes at most and I have rounded up some of the best quotes from each one. See below some helpful tips, tricks, hacks and more below from your favorite influencers on IG:
Esther from @itsestherlane:
“I think influencing is a great cross-promotion for my acting career. You never know who’s going to stumble across your Instagram, Youtube, video, or Tik Tok!”
“My favorite brand collab is always the collaboration I have at the moment. I’m beyond grateful for brands that WANT to work with me.” -Esther
Esther’s Instagram Live was on her acting career
Gina from @TeenieGenieStyle:
“I took blogging seriously from day 1. Once I made the decision to do it, I ran with it. I haven’t looked back ever since.” -Gina
Gina’s IG Live was on Marketing tactics and how her career comes in handy when it comes to influencing.
Lena from @pullingraviity
“Don’t wash your face three or four times a day. Twice is enough so you do not strip your skin of its natural oils.” -Lena
Lena’s IG Live was on influencing and skincare

So I finally got a mini beauty fridge (thanks Easter Bunny)! I did not want to fill it with all of my products as they would not all fit, so I put a few of the ones that I use the most.
Here are the products listed:
- Eye Mask : gotta keep these cool so they can work their very best and depuff the area around your skin
- Lip Mask : same goes for this one, these keep your lips plump, but I think mostly its just a self-care patch to apply anywhere on your face that needs to depuff
- Bye Bye Undereye Cream : This is one of my favorite products since I feel like my dark circles are so prominent
- Exfoliating energy facial with enzymes : Youth to the People created this mask that I have been trying a few times a week and I love it! I am still testing it out in my mini-fridge
- Jade Roller : I have heard mixed things about jade rollers and recently it’s not very good, but for a quick depuff in the morning it actually works for me
- Firming Mask : Kiehl’s ginger left and hibiscus firming mask just feels better when it is cooler and makes my skin feel rejuvenated
What areyour go-to beauty products?
