We love helping you guys find new influencers that you haven’t crossed paths with before. We’ve already created posts filled with influencers from Canada, Africa, Australia, as well as our faves in parenting, photography, makeup, and a whole host of crazy-cool Gen Z-ers.
This time, we’re flying half-way around the world to the vast and varying continent of Asia. From South Korea to India, Malaysia to Vietnam, we’re taking a look at the influencers who are killing it over there right now across beauty, fashion, parenting, and fitness.
We had a really hard time narrowing down our selection for this article. But, somehow we managed to pull together our top influencers across these niches for you to discover and follow!
@michelledyy - Philippines
Full of energy and smiles, Michelle Dy is a beauty vlogger and influencer who slays with her makeup looks every damn time.

@heominhon - Vietnam
Being a mom doesn’t stop you from being fabulous and fashion forward, according to Heominhon, a parenting influencer from Vietnam. Her Instagram feed is styled with muted colors, family snaps, and stylish home decor that we would kill for!
@timtiah - Malaysia
One of the smaller micro-influencers in this post, Timothy Tiah is a Father that has captured our attention for his family-focused feed and adorable family. And, it would seem that social media runs in the family, as his wife is an influencer in her own right over at @fourfeetnine.
@mikaelamartinez - Philippines
Mikaela Lagdameo Martinez is a powerhouse of social influence and has already worked with brands like Ford and Cetaphil. A mother to three adorable children, and with a style that’s hard to match, she is definitely one to watch.
@fifialvianto - Indonesia
Killer photography, a beautiful family, and a set of dedicated followers - it doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to influencers on Instagram. Fifi alvianto fills every shot with joy, laughter, and style, and we can’t stop diving into her feed when we need a little pick me up!
@tuktabarbie - Thailand
A super-chic mom and an amazingly adorable little girl make this account too good not to follow. Tukta Panida’s Instagram feed is packed full of color, fun, and general adorableness as her little girl dresses up as a mermaid, or digs into giant desserts.
Fashion/ Style Influencers
@styledrive - India
From ballgowns to bathrobes, Aayushi Bangur Sahu knows how to work an outfit! This style influencer has filled her feed with a range of looks that would give anyone some serious wardrobe envy (including us!).
@mrbriansee - Malaysia
I’m pretty sure that Brian See has more style in his pinky finger than many of us have in our entire bodies! Every shot on his feed is perfectly put together in a way that looks naturally effortless. We are 100% obsessed with this guy here at The Shelf, and you should be too!
@euniceannabel - Singapore
Another feed that you’ll find us pouring over for hours is that of Eunice Annabel Lim. Her young, fresh sense of style and ability to make fun of herself (scroll down for pictures of her covered in burgers and fries!) make her a breath of fresh air on an otherwise overstyled platform.
@hellytong - Vietnam
Helly Tong is a model and fashion lover whose feed simply oozes arty coolness. Every shot is practically an individual work of art. While she leaves us feeling way less cool than we already do, we just can’t give her up!
@anazsiantar - Indonesia
Blogger, vlogger, and social media superstar Anastasia Siantar is doing it all! With over 380k followers on Instagram, and 11k subscribers on YouTube, Siantar’s audience is growing day by day. And, she’s already working with top brands like Qantas, so expect to see much more from her in the future!
Health and Fitness Influencers
@forcejun - Thailand
With fitness inspiration and abs for days, it’s no surprise that the blogger known simple as @Forcejun has nearly a quarter of a million loyal followers. His cheerful attitude is an awesome motivator for those looking to follow in his footsteps and whip themselves into shape!

@anjasmara - Indonesia
A yogi and general fitness expert, this is the account to follow if you’re looking for a mix of zen and fitness. Anjasmara’s gravity-defying poses have us all wondering how he does it, and we definitely haven’t tried to recreate any of them in the office…
@norsoraya - Indonesia
Another awe-inspiring yogi to follow, Soraya’s feed is filled with insanely flexible poses, and fitspiration for all. And forget about boring backdrops, most of her amazing poses are set against stunning scenery to give them a truly beautiful style.
Of course, this is just a small selection of some of Asia’s top influencers, there are thousands more out there that we just couldn’t squeeze into this post. Who are your favorites? Tell us in the comments!
