The influencer boom has made it possible for anyone and anyone to be someone. Instagram has redefined fame and, as such, made the scene incredibly saturated. Nowadays, it takes a healthy mix of gusto, talent, and effortless determination to stand out. Good thing for May Kwok, DJ Millie, and ABIR, they have all three. 

These women are beacons of genuine talent within the sea of wannabes. They deserve the followings they have because their authenticity is worn on their sleeves. We teamed up with Clinique to help set the record straight of what it really means to be an influencer today. It's a lot more work than slapping on filters and writing cheeky captions. It's all about celebrating your own individuality; the following three women do so with aplomb.
