What do 90 percent of the ladies do when they finally break free from the daily hustle bustle? They sit back and binge watch beauty and fashion tutorials! We apologize for the blatant stereotyping but who doesn’t want to know ‘how to rock a saari 10 ways‘? We might not try the gazillion face masks suggested by Farah Dhukai but we can’t help but watch her try the rubbery pastes. It feels as if your skin is getting clearer with every mini video we watch. It is an addiction which needs to have a rehab center of its own where doctors ask, “Is it the obsession with the winged eyeliner or ombre lips that brings you here?”
But to reach this point, you need to be a regular Instagram user and know your fashion and beauty influencers well. From their daily fashion and beauty updates to travel posts, these ladies keep us entertained with their live updates on Instagram and Snapchat!
Here are the top influencers from around the world, who are all gorgeous, successful, and most importantly DESI!
