From LifeOfABlueberry to Instagram Influencer
Before becoming an Instagram influencer, she worked as a full-time makeup artist for MAC. There, she made the decision to share and upload makeup tutorials on her YouTube channel called Life of a Blueberry to showcase her skills and knowledge.
Her online videos were gaining significant engagement. And from there, she decided to leave MAC to work as a full-time freelance makeup artist while sharing videos on YouTube.
She soon developed her presence on Instagram, and as her content was drawing more attention, she began to collaborate alongside major makeup and skincare labels including Anastasia Beverly Hills, Huda Beauty, Ole Henriksen and Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty.
Jagoda grew her presence on Instagram organically where she has amassed over 275k followers on the platform. She avoids using Instagram ads on her profile since she wants to be authentic and genuine. Jagoda is one of the influencers who share their journey on becoming an Instagram Influencer.
