The Products International Beauty Bloggers Swear By

It's no secret that YouTube vloggers are rapidly becoming the biggest influencers of the beauty world. They're being tapped to partner with major beauty brands, selling out products within 24 hours, and transforming how millennials view and interact with makeup. So, yeah, they've got pull, and we're transfixed.

If you follow us, you're probably already familiar with the stateside stars. Now it's time to meet the international bloggers with global influence. We had them dish on their beauty routines and can't-live-without products — because what better way is there to get to know someone than to raid their vanity?

From the Middle East to Australia, here are the beauty vloggers and brands to know across the world.

Huda Kattan
Kattan owns more than 10,000 beauty products, boasts over one million YouTube devotees following her every makeup move, and has multiple cosmetics lines under her belt. So we think it's safe to say the Dubai-based vlogger knows what she's talking about. And with a stash like that, we're kind of shocked that she was able to boil down her favorites to just four must-have makeup, skin-care, and body products. You know they must be pretty damn good.

"Sunday Riley is easily one of my favorite skin-care brands — I love using the face oils. One of my favorites is Luna, which is loaded with ingredients like retinol, chia-seed oil, and blue tansy. It renews skin gorgeously overnight, while also tightening pores."

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, $105, available at Sephora.

"A favorite drugstore body scrub that I love is the Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub. It's a bit rough because of the sugar, so it really scrubs off dead skin beautifully. It also smells incredible and feels so luxurious. I love using this at least once a week, and I swear it makes my skin glow."

Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub, $15, available at Ulta Beauty.

"I love my new liquid-matte products. I use them with the Huda Beauty Lip Contour Pencil, and I just feel that my lips are on for the entire day. What I also love is the formula — it has oils in it that nourish your lips, so it feels amazing. I always just love having my lips on perfectly; I feel like I look so well put-together!"

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick, $20, available at Sephora.

Lauren Curtis
Heading back Down Under, we come to YouTube guru Lauren Curtis. While her hair-curling techniques and prom-makeup inspiration got her 3.5 million followers, it's the more intimate videos (like getting un-ready and discussing her experience with lip injections) that keep them loyal.
25 of 45
"This product is the most full-coverage, yet lightweight foundation I've ever tried. It feels like water on your skin, but can cover almost anything! Traditionally, most full-coverage foundations are thick and mask-like, so this is a game-changer."

Roseanne Tang
If Roseanne Tang's descriptive and helpful beauty videos aren't enough, you can always sign up to attend her makeup school — if you live in Singapore, that is. Asia's not on your itinerary? You can settle for some of her tried-and-true products, ahead. Naturally, there are plenty of heat-friendly items in the mix. Singapore's not exactly known for its frigid winters, after all.

"You only need one to two drops of this amazing foundation for the entire face. It gives you flawless coverage that's a little more on the matte side. It also holds throughout the day without getting cakey or patchy, even in Singapore's humid weather."

"I'm always up for a good hot-pink lip, and I really like matte, liquid lipsticks because they don't transfer and are ultra-pigmented. My favorite is the shade Mars, which is a super-vibrant pink that just wakes me up."

"BB cushions are pretty much the new-generation foundations, and with so many now on the market, it's hard to pick a good one. I've used about three of these BB Cushions already. It's my go-to for a flawless, pore-less finish. It also holds up really well in hot and humid weather, and is a great quick foundation fix if you're on the run or need to get ready after a workout."

Laneige BB Cushion, $34, available at Target.

"My favorite blush of the moment is the Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Blush, which gives a gorgeous everyday pink to the cheeks. It smells really nice, too, and is a perfect color for my skin tone."

Fleur De Force
If you're a regular YouTube user, you've likely had one or two videos from U.K.-based Fleur de Force pop up on your screen. She started making videos six years ago, and her fans are some of the most loyal and devoted out there. She released a line of eyeshadows, lip glosses, and faux lashes almost a year ago, and came out with a book just last month. She's definitely a beauty force to be reckoned with.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara, $23, available at Tarte.
36 of 45
"I'm totally obsessed with my new Fully Fleur lashes at the moment. They are like a full-strip version of my best-selling three-quarter style Fleur Loves — wispy and natural-looking, but with some serious length at the ends. They are perfect for day or night wear, and work really well for the summer as they are still super-lightweight and comfortable."

Eylure Fleur De Force Lashes in Fully Fleur, $8, available August 8 at Eylure.

"I absolutely love this cream, stick highlighter. It's subtle and natural-looking, but still noticeable. The consistency is great; it doesn't move the foundation underneath when you apply it, like some other cream highlighters do."

Marc Jacobs Glow Stick Spotlight, $42, available at Marc Jacobs.

"This is the best and most inexpensive product to use on your brows to hold them in place. Sam and I have been raving about this for the past month or so. Use a spoolie brush with a small amount of water and rub it over the soap until it kicks up enough of it to make a paste, then brush it upwards to make the perfect brows that won't move. Don't use normal soap, as it will set white."

Pears Transparent Original Soap, $17.35, available at Amazon.

"MAC Face and Body is the best foundation for a light-but-perfect finish, especially if you are over 30. I like to use this with a damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge."
