Forbes has unveiled its list of the world's top beauty influencers — the top 10 beauty bloggers, vloggers and Instagrammers who have turned their social media following into success and international stardom.

Forbes will stagger the publication of its Top Influencers list, releasing the names of the top ten influencers from three different categories each quarter. This quarter's lists feature the fitness, beauty and home categories.

In the number one spot is Zoe 'Zoella' Suggs, the British YouTuber who boasts over 11 million followers on the site, as well as over 10 million followers on Instagram, followed by entrepreneur Michelle Phan.
