Starting your *own* business is something a lot of people dream about—including your favorite influencers and content creators! Some of them have already taken that leap of faith and turned their dream business venture into a reality, and they've taken us along for the ride via their YouTube videos. Below, we list down eight Pinay influencers who also became entrepreneurs:

Rei Germar

Rei is currently the co-founder of two businesses: The Lula Club and By September. She started The Lula Club with her vlogger friends and IRL besties Jammy Cruz, Hazel Quing, and Ry Velasco. They currently offer cute disposable cameras and notebooks.

By September is an Instagram jewelry shop that she owns with her long-time beau, Migy Romulo. The brand offers handmade fine jewelry that is perfect for minimalists. P.S. You can score the same initial dot diamond rings that Rei and her vlogger BFFs wear from this shop!

Anne Clutz

If you're into makeup, we're sure you've stumbled upon Anne's helpful tutorials. She is, after all, one of the OG local beauty YouTubers! She's been in the game for a long time, which is why it's no surprise that she decided to create her very own makeup brushes. Her brand, Brushes by Anne Clutz, currently offers three brush sets that are perfect for beginners and pros.

She also has her own skincare brand, Anne Clutz Beauty Solutions, whose products promise to deliver a ~glowing~ complexion with continued use. Her brand currently carries soaps and lotions.

Mae Layug

GRWM Cosmetics may have only launched earlier this year, but Mae shared that the conceptualization and planning actually began as early as 2019. Her makeup brand currently offers creamy, multi-use tints, and we can't wait for her next releases!

Aside from her makeup brand, Mae also has her own "Muji-style" café, 2.15 Coffee, that serves aesthetic-looking drinks and desserts!

Anna Cay

Anna is one of the many content creators who have gone on to create their own beauty brands. All Covered by Anna Cay has been around since 2019, and since then, it has given us tinted *and* powdered sunscreens. (SPF is really important, you guys!)

Angel Dei

Angel is known for her travel vlogs that often feature picturesque beaches, and she's always sporting pretty bikinis for each spot she goes to. If you've ever been curious about the brand she wears, it's most likely from her own swimwear brand: Savvy Swim!

Viy Cortez

At just 25 years old, Viy is a proud owner of multiple businesses, including VIYline Cosmetics and VIYline Skincare. In an interview with PEP.ph, she shared that ever since she started her business ventures, tons of young people have messaged her saying that they were inspired to start their own because of her. Aww!

Chelsea Valencia

Chelsea may only be in her early 20s, but she was already business-savvy, even from a young age. Proof? She actually started selling thrifted clothes waaay back in 2013! Her Instagram shop, @oakph, has almost 50,000 followers who regularly wait for the next ~curated~ collection.

Ashley Sandrine Yap

Ashley *loves* coffee and milk tea a lot, so it came as no surprise when she started South End Brews, a delivery-based beverage shop that is located in Taguig. They offer milk tea drinks, lattes, and peanuts.
