This Thursday through Saturday, the world’s most popular web sensations (and the fans who love them) will be heading to Anaheim for the seventh-annual VidCon. Last year’s online video celebration garnered more than 21,000 fans, creators, and industry leaders to the Anaheim Convention Center, providing that digital content — especially videos — is king.

If you already scored tickets to the sold-out show and are overwhelmed by the amount of fashion and beauty creators who are set to grace the convention via exclusive Q&As, workshops, and meet-and-greets, here’s a roundup of ten can’t-miss influencers worth catching.
