The Best 25 Bloggers & Youtubers Over 40 That You’ll Love

The 40+ influencer community is growing and we are thrilled!

At one of the first rewardStyle conferences Erin attended, there were just a handful of influencers over 40…out of 200. Now, there are dozens! As the 40+ influencer world grows, so do the amazing resources! Here at Busbee, we’re trying to disrupt the perception of being 40+. This is not a time to hide your age or worry about becoming invisible. This is a time for reinvention, a time to try new things!

With this new site launch, our team will be bringing you all the resources you need to uplevel your lives. We will not only cover Style, but also Beauty, Wellness, Lifestyle, and Home. If you’re interested in more 40+ influencers who are empowering women, check out these YouTubers and bloggers that we love…

  1. Here are a few more, Tammy of Tammy’s Ageless Beauty, Melissa of Mrs Melissa M Beauty, Patti (77yo) of RXSTRMOM, Kimberly of Pretty Over 50, Nikol Johnson (she does beautiful makeup application and instruction on older ladies), and Marnie Goldberg. Love your new site Erin! Merry Christmas!

  2. Wow! Love this! Seeing some favorites and new ladies to check out! A few years ago my friends and I lamented we were virtually invisible in the “style blog” world, but that’s really changing for the better. Erin, Angie (Hot and Flashy), Cassie (Sugarplum) have really helped me look better and feel better. Thanks so much!

  3. I needed ALL these new women who are 40-Plus to “follow”. Thank you for helping me update my Instagram feed with some relevant content!!!

  4. I Can’t thank you enough, Erin. I have so enjoyed watching you and knowing you these years. I have followed your journey and am always inspired by you. I am so thankful and honored that you chose me to be in this amazing group.

    Much love and thanks!


  5. My favorite over-40 youtuber for beauty is jen phelps. She is so hard working and gives the best makeup reviews, very in-depth with lots of clear swatches. Plus her looks are very subtle and wearable and not over-the-top full glam. definitely check her out for next time!

  6. Thank you Erin! This was so sweet of you to include me in this list! I’m honored! I wish you all the best and I’m praying for great favor over your beautiful new website. Love always, Desiree

  7. You missed Audrey Coyne and Marie Anne LecouEr. I have loved watching both. Dominique is also one of my favo, along with Erin. How would we ever havemade it through 2020 without them?

  8. I’m surprised you left off Suzanne smith of Crazy Blonde life and Deanna Pizitz of Well and worthy Life. Suzanne has great style and is in awesome shape and Deanna changed my life for the better!

    1. Hey Tammy… there are many other wonderful beauty, wellness, and fashion YouTubers and bloggers that we were not able to mention in this list. Maybe next time. Thanks for your note. Erin xo
