With over 40 million followers on Instagram and a staggering 86 million (and counting) people viewing her TikToks, calling Addison Rae an influencer feels like an understatement. Every move the 21-year-old makes, whether she’s wearing a “crazy-cute” corset top or swiftly detailing the financials of a social media star, sparks a flurry of headlines…and purchases.
The power of her name has created a multimillion-dollar business consisting of energy drinks, skin-care products, and lucrative Netflix deals. And her latest venture includes a collaboration with Ipsy on Glam Bag X, a selection of eight full-size products, curated by Addison, worth up to $500 but sold for $55. “I was really excited to have my own take on the Glam Bag X,” Rae tells me, adding that the products she chose for the collaboration were inspired by a “’90s model off-duty look.”
But with the opportunity to talk to someone as, well, influential as Rae, we had to ask what else is inspiring her at the moment. Read on for our latest installment of Your Fave’s Faves with Addison Rae.
The ’90s trend I’m loving
A bushy brow! It’s so beautiful to see everyone have their brows up high. I think it’s a common makeup style now. This is something I have always loved and stuck to. I use my Item Beauty Brow Chow; it’s great for filling in my brows. Because I have thick eyebrows, I only use it sparingly. A brow gel is also essential. I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel. This one is in my Glam Bag X.

I love Liv Tyler, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford as ’90s references. They all have amazing looks. Fiona Apple also has incredible ’90s looks. Her eye looks were always very cool and graphic.
The last thing I bought
I feel like I’ve been ordering so much stuff lately, but the last thing I think I ordered was some sunglasses. They’re Stussy sunglasses. They were advertised on Instagram. They are so hard to ignore. I see them and I’m like, “OK, whatever.”
My favorite way to spend a day off
Going on a walk. That is what I love to do. I just bought a keyboard for my apartment so I can learn things. It was amazing to learn “Stay.”
I’ve seen so much stuff about my unreleased song “I Got It Bad.” I think it’s so funny right now. I don’t know [when I’ll release it].. We’ll just have to wait and see. It all depends.
The best thing in my closet
My style changes very frequently because I’m still kind of figuring out what I love. It’s a mix of many things. I love a ’90s…what is the word I’m looking for? It’s not grungy but has a dark, sexy Angelina Jolie vibe. That’s what I find really cool. But I also do love tropical, eccentric pieces. My style is still a work in progress. Sometimes I worry about whether people will say this looks bad on me, or ….. But I am learning to accept what I wear and not to care about it. My style is on the way.
