Alana

Alana
Alana is a 22 year old beauty content creator and blogger trying to make the beauty industry more inclusive while adding her own twist to the vintage aesthetic along the way. Fun fact? She was on TikTok for 18 hours last week. You could say she is a TikTok dictionary of sorts with this amount of screen time. Follow her @alanaauston 

Taylor

Sydney

Sydney
Sydney is from Minneapolis, MN. No, she doesn’t live in an igloo, but she still plays quite a bit of ice hockey. Outside of her media 9-5 job, Sydney is a super active person – she is an avid wake surfer during summer and loves teaching fitness classes at the Minneapolis ALTR studio where she leads a HIIT style workout every week. Her biggest passion is having her podcast, @StraightCandidPodcast with her co-host, Sophie. Sydney loves to keep things candid and share her true self across all her social media platforms, including her podcast. Sydney thinks it is so important to be yourself, share what you love to do and who you are to your core.   “Life is beautiful day to day – share it and be real! I can’t wait for you to get to know me more and to share my favorite ways to use essence in my day to day across all the things I love to do!” – @candidsydd
