Overview of Beauty Influencers in Germany

Due to the cost-of-living crisis, many consumers are hesitant to spend money on non-essential purchases.

While the BPC category benefits from the lipstick-effect, ‘influencer fatigue’ and ‘deinfluencing’ have grown during times of financial crisis, as influencers have become synonymous with overconsumption. Therefore, BPC brands need to rethink their influencer marketing strategies.

Germany Influencer Marketing: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Consumer Behaviour: 38% of BPC buyers do their own online research prior to purchasing a product. Influencers’ reviews are a key resource in their customer journey. This is evidenced by the 46% of Germans who have bought a product an influencer they follow advertised.
  • The ‘Deinfluencing’ Trend: While beauty influencers and educators will continue to play an important role in pre-purchase research, the current ‘deinfluencing’ trend is underscoring this development. Moreover, consumers are becoming more discerning about who they follow and are demanding more diversity in influencer marketing in Germany and the BPC industry overall.
  • Influencers in Germany and Authenticity: Today’s consumers value authenticity and credibility. This means that brands need to ensure that whoever they partner with has credibility with their target audience. With demand for more diversity increasing, 22% of 16 to 44-year-old social media users want to see more unique beauty influencers. Using more relatable spokespeople will be beneficial, as they help attract more followers.
