The mind behind the blog, Ya Salam, Korin Avraham is a fashion, lifestyle, and travel maven. Her style can be summed up as playful, feminine, and adventurous.

Reese Blutstein (@double3xposure)
Reese Blutstein, one half of the Atlanta-based Blutstein twins, is single-handedly making fashion blogging cool again—at least that’s what the glossies will have you think.

Cynthia Andrew (@simplycyn)
Cynthia is NYC-based blogger, but she sees herself as a “global citizen,” thanks to her Senegalese roots.

Her personal style is an approachable mix of brands, something you could see yourself wearing every day—a rarity for fashion IGs.
Dawn Eyes Cosmetics (@dawneyescosmetics)
Dawn Eyes Cosmetics’ Instagram feed is in a word: mesmerizing. The beauty brand makes iridescent color cosmetics that implore you to leave at least five heart-eye emojis in the comments section. But the real reason this account is worth a follow: it showcases MUAs of diverse backgrounds.

The brand is committed to sustainability and has recently been featured in The New York Times, Glamour, Refinery29, and many more.
