Beauty and lifestyle influencer, Amra Olević Reyes, is taking a stand against constant “influencer slander.”
Reyes, who has 5.8 million followers on Instagram, told BuzzFeed News that she tweeted about this last week because she was constantly seeing people bashing influencers on social media.
“Other beauty/fashion professionals slander our job and make it seem less than,” said Reyes. “Whether it’s professional makeup artists, hairstylists, or higher-up fashion representatives, they say things like ‘influencers don’t do shit.’”

Do you agree or disagree with her comments? Are influencers unfairly judged?
The only people that discredit influencers are those that tried it and didn’t succeed. Don’t throw stones now just cause you didn’t pop 🤷🏻♀️— Amra Olević Reyes (@amrezy) September 27, 2019
An influencer is a hybrid of many jobs. A stylist, makeup artist, hair stylist, photographer, editor, creative director. And y’all still saying it isn’t legitimate? FOH lol. Not many can do it & stay consistent. Ion wanna hear no influencer slander again.— Amra Olević Reyes (@amrezy) September 27, 2019
