If you’ve ever browsed Anna Louise’s Instagram, there’s about a one in five chance you’ll stop at one of her selfies, let go of your jaw and think, How? ‘Or’ What does she have an appearance of skin such Well?! The model signed Elite Model management, influencer and founder of Temptation Swim spoke to us today about the beauty products she cannot live without, the life of an influencer, her best advice and much more.

What have you learned as a model and influencer over the years? What advice would you give to your young self?

There is so much that I have learned over the years that it’s really hard to even know where to start! I would say my biggest lesson is to stay true to yourself, everyone has their own agenda and not even in a malicious way! It’s just that no one can know what you’re capable of as much as you and they can see a different direction for you that might not be what you want or reach your full potential. You have to follow your gut and your gut feeling. And you absolutely have to go after what you want!

You have worked with many big brands over the years including Pretty Little Thing, Fashion Nova, Bang Energy and more. Which brands are next on your bucket list?

My biggest goal at the moment is to develop and promote my swimwear brand. I worked on relaunching it with a new collection that fascinates me a lot! Other than that, I would love to work with more skin care and wellness brands as I am very passionate about whole body wellness and including it in my daily life in many ways!

What has been your biggest pinch moment yet?

I think my biggest ‘pinch me’ moment was definitely when I hit one million followers! It’s funny because I woke up, opened Instagram, refreshed my page and there was this little “1M” staring at me. I remember when I had 40,000 subscribers and felt like I was never going to reach the million! Now as I look back I feel like the time has passed but at the time I had no idea if I would be able to make it my career and I was taking a huge leap of faith on myself. I am truly grateful that I have grown so much!

You have a substantial audience of over a million Instagram followers. Was there a turning point where your subscribers started to grow exponentially or was it gradual?

My biggest turning point was when I went from 60,000 to 300,000 subscribers in a few months. After that I have experienced pretty steady growth with bursts here and there when some photos or videos go viral.

What do you think are the top social media trends to watch in 2021?

It’s really hard to anticipate social media trends, but TIC Tac and Reels on Instagram are definitely the top performing content right now! I think people like to watch videos because they are real and personal

How do you think Instagram has impacted fashion? Modeling industry?

Instagram for me allowed me to be a role model to be completely honest. I’ve been told many times that I’m too short to be a model, but I decided to devote all of my time to growing my Instagram to get into the agency-less industry. I love what Instagram did to modeling industry standards and beauty in general because it’s much more inclusive!

What is your current skincare routine?

My current skin care routine includes a morning and evening routine. In the morning, I wash my face with a mild cleanser, use witch hazel toner, vitamin C serum, vitamin C eye cream, vitamin C moisturizer, and then I finish with drops of sunscreen! In the evening, I wash my face with a foaming scrub, a tonic spray with witch hazel, an anti-aging serum, an anti-aging eye cream, then a soothing face oil & a thick lip balm.

Which 3 products can you not do without?

My 3 products that I cannot spend a day without are:

Aim Hi Everyday Soothing Face Oil

Goal Hi Everyday After the mist for beach hair
