Before now, those we considered celebrities were movie/music stars, political and media icons and those from rich families who flaunt their wealth on TV or even before our very own eyes. But with the advent of the internet and the social media, many of our celebrities now include social media stars; this is because social media is producing more celebrities that we can even count. Lots of people keep rising out of the blue and gathering fame and wealth at the same time just by trending on social media through vlogging, entertaining, educating or simply by sharing their hot and sultry pictures and Olivia Pierson is exactly one of them if not their queen.
Olivia is a vlogger, makeup artist, entrepreneur, and TV personality who is enjoying her life while still entertaining people with her numerous pictures which you can’t possibly scroll past. Her journey to fame began when she boarded a train from California to Los Angeles in search of a better life and to say she found what she was looking for is an understatement, as she has become a popular figure and household name. Below is her story.
Olivia Pierson – Biography (Age)
Olivia Pierson who is popularly known as Barbie Blank was born to Brian and Julia Pierson on the 20th of August 1989 in Langley Township, Canada. She is Canadian and of Caucasian ethnicity. Pierson is the fourth of the five kids born to her parents; she has three elder brothers (Brock, Preston, and Owen) and a younger sister named Sophia.
There’s no information about her early life and education, maybe she doesn’t really want to share that part of her life with the public. However, her career as a make-up artist can be traced to her childhood days. According to her, she saw and loved how beautiful her mom looked and decided to follow in her mum’s footsteps in looking gorgeous by making up just like her mum.
Pierson’s pursuit for fame began after she left California for the bustling city of Los Angeles. It was not too long until she got herself a good number of followers on social media courtesy of her breathtaking photos of elegant dresses, glamourous makeups, and stylish poses. Olivia, being a smart woman decided to capitalize on that advantage to carve a niche for herself. Thus, in 2015, she alongside her business partner, cousin and best friend, launched a YouTube channel called NAT+LIV (a fashion and beauty channel).
With about 270 thousand subscribers and still counting, the channel is not doing badly. The two ladies (Natalie and Olivia) have also gone ahead to launch a lifestyle, fashion and beauty brand and a blog called ‘Jerome’ after their mother’s maiden name.
Luck also shone on the beautiful model in 2015 when her cousin Natalie Halcro was recommended to the show executives of Wives and Girlfriends of sportspersons show (WAGS). However, Natalie agreed to be a cast of the show but on the condition that Olivia Pierson will be cast as well. Olivia remained on the E! TV series from the time it was premiered in August 2015 until February 2018 when the show got canceled as a result of consequent poor viewers ratings. After the show ended, they got lucky again, this time from the executives of the show who announced a spin-off of their own show, NAT&LIV. The show follows the lives of the two cousins and how they navigate the business world in Los Angeles.
Aside from the Youtube channel which she runs alongside Natalie, she is also popular on Instagram as a model with over 2.6 million followers and it has been rumored that she makes about $15 to $20 per post. Olivia Pierson has also been busy with other engagements too as she has also been a part of an initiative called ‘The tub’ which is aimed at raising funds for breast cancer awareness.
Olivia has been earning massively as an Instagram model, makeup artist and even from her YouTube channel. There have been speculations going around about which aspect of her career pays her the most, of course, she wouldn’t reveal that. It has also been rumored that she makes about $15 to $20 per post; that claim also has not been confirmed but currently, her net worth is estimated at $165 thousand and even more.
The Canadian beauty doesn’t hoard her wealth as she lives buoyantly in her posh house in Vancouver, Canada.
Is She Dating, Who is Her Boyfriend?
Olivia Pierson has dated several guys in the past but more prominently was late in the first season of WAG when she started dating Marcedes Lewis, a football player with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). They were so much into each other that Lewis even got to meet her mom but things didn’t turn out well as they started having trust issues. Olivia accused Lewis of being secretive about certain things including talking to her sister, Sophia.
The straw that broke the camel’s back came sometime in 2016 when Lewis who was supposed to be training in Florida was spotted by Olivia in a club in Los Angeles and he was not able to come up with any cogent reason; they had to go their separate ways thereafter.
There were speculations months later about her supposed new boo – Joel Embiid. The rumor began making rounds after Olivia uploaded a picture she had with Joel on her page but Joel had, however, savagely shut the wagging tongues of the rumor mongers on his own page. Apparently, there is no clue as to who Olivia Pierson is currently dating at the moment. Although it’s assumed that she’s in the middle of her career right now, there could be a love story sometime soon.
