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

Best Influencers Over 40

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

At one of the first LTK 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!

Our team’s goal is always to bring you all the resources you need to uplevel your lives. We cover not only 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. Thanks for the recommendations and for your incredible style tips that have helped me to dress with style and flair. “Lisa J” is a professional MUA who just turned 40. Has her own line of amazing brushes. Her You Tube makeup tutorials are exceptional for any age, including mature women. I am 56 and rely on her to update my makeup techniques. Definitely check her out.

  2. I adore Erin and look forward to her Sunday newsletters each week. I will check out your suggestions…some are women I know and some are brand new, so thank you! I would love to include three You-tubers who I follow: Michele Wang (all about luxury makeup), MsGoldGirl (Marnie is a mother of two college graduates and she talks Amazon and Walmart), and finally Kristina Braly, a board-certified anesthesiologist, mother of two, and brand new entrepreneur with her clean gorgeous candle line, Aembr.

    Keep up the good work! See you next week….XOXO

    1. Thanks so much for your support and for adding a few more amazing ladies to our list! Truly appreciate you, Sue! ~Erin xo

  3. I love Florida based Anna Reid on You Tube! She has such great style and has a great sense of humor!
    Also love Marnie Goldberg, Style with Serena, and Mommies Makeup and Moscato. Thanks for the list of these wonderful ladies. I am watching most of them already but not all of them.
    Adding them to my watch list!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!!!

  7. 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!

    Melissa

  8. 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!

    1. Hi Susan! So glad I can help in some small way. There are many other wonderful beauty and fashion youtubers and bloggers that we were not able to mention in this list. Maybe next time. xo

  11. 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
