Meredith Foster is a popular YouTube style influencer whose online makeup tutorials and fashion gained her millions of followers. Foster owns a self-titled channel where she uploads entertaining videos which, so far, has over 4.7 million subscribers.
The beauty and lifestyle vlogger is also known on her self-titled Vine account. Yet this doesn’t begin to explain who Meredith Foster really is; her life before fame and how she got here.
Who is Meredith Foster and What is Her Age?
Meredith Foster was born and raised in Los Angeles California, on November 5, 1995, to parents, Steve and Laura Foster. She has a fraternal twin brother named Micheal and an older sister Elizabeth; all three siblings share a very special bond as was evident in the Whisper challenge video she uploaded.
From elementary to college, Foster is reportedly a straight-A student. Besides her inclination to academics and her love for books, she actively participated in sports such as softball, basketball and also competed in cheerleading; as the pivotal cheerleader, her team was undefeated.
She took interest in YouTube videos and would often watch them in the summers of her high school years. In doing this, she was inspired to create her own page and start uploading videos therein.
Foster began to gain popularity on her YouTube account after her sister, who was then working for a newspaper mentioned it in one of her articles. At first, she deactivated the account when her classmate started teasing her about it, but she later activated it again in 2010 with an apology video to her viewers.
Ever since, Foster has uploaded videos ranging from fashion tips, getting ready with her and DIY’s which are mainly requested by fans. She gained massive popularity with enormous subscriptions and this motivated her to start a second channel where she uploads weekly vlogs. Her enthusiastic and humorous personality is largely the reason she was able to win the hearts of millions of fans. Plus, she works hard to keep her viewers entertained every day with new videos.
The beauty and lifestyle influencer has released more than a hundred videos since 2010 to presents. Some of her latest videos include: How Meredith Foster Lost All Her Friends (2018); How Girls Act in Fall (2018); How Girls Act First Day Back to School (2017); Morning Routine: NYC Hotel Edition (2015); My Apartment Tour in VR (2016); How To Get Taylor Swift’s Curls Without Heat!…; and so many other exciting videos.
On August 8, 2018, Foster celebrated nine years on YouTube with a video and thanked her fans for their constant love, support and kindness.
Besides posting videos on YouTube, Foster commands more than 2.2 million followers on Instagram where she posts images of her workout, travel, hair, house, people, pets, as well as videos. Her twitter handle has up to 1.31 million followers and nearly half a million followers on Facebook.
Her love for pets is so intense that she said if she weren’t into beauty vlogging, being a Veterinarian would be her other choice of career.
One of her favorite hobbies is music and Foster mentioned that she wishes to learn how to play the guitar someday, citing Taylor Swift as her inspiration.
The YouTube star has gained fame over the years with consistency and dedication to her career as a vlogger. Therefore it’s not surprising that her net worth is estimated to be $500,000. Not bad for one who’s young as she is.
Weight Loss Journey and Height
Meredith Foster’s weight loss journey sprung from her ongoing struggle with body dysmorphia. The media star opened up about it on her YouTube page after she was accused of having an eating disorder. She denied all suspicion concerning any health issues, despite appearing more slender than before.
However, Foster admitted she used to struggle with a negative mental perception of her body. Taking to her Instagram page, she captioned a side by side image of herself wearing gym gear in December 2016 and running on the beach in a bikini in May 2016. She wrote that though she had attained her fitness goal, it was still hard to accept and love herself completely.
The Los Angeles born vlogger embarked on a new fitness routine in 2017 that led many fans and followers to question whether or not she was suffering from anorexia. Her eating disorder was also rumored to be the reason for the end of her friendship with fellow YouTubers, Sierra Furtados, Teala Dunn and Eva Gutowski.
Considering her petite height of 5’1″ (1.55 m) fans trumped her page with comments, expressing concerns about her intense fitness programme and diet. Things got heated up when Foster wasn’t seen on YouTube for months, yet, the young vlogger returned after three long months with a message, saying she needed to disconnect and reconnect with people who make her happy.
