Her initial claim to fame may have been being the sister of Arielle Charnas, but Michaela Podolsky has managed to carve out a niche for herself as a beauty influencer. The new mom opened up on Instagram about her pregnancy troubles, including fertility treatments and the loss of one of her twins mid-pregnancy. She has an equally relatable approach to beauty. She embraces a variety of luxe and more moderately priced brands and favors a natural look. (Just look at her five holy grail beauty picks.)
Unlike many other influencers, she has the background to back up her tips and tricks. Before filming Sephora beauty hauls, she worked as a makeup artist at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.
We recently caught up with her to chat about all things beauty.
