Musician, songwriter, and actor Finneas O’Connell made a name for himself writing and producing songs for his little sister, rising pop star Billie Eilish, and other artists. One of his songs is particularly special to him because he wrote it for his girlfriend, Claudia Sulewski. You might be familiar with Finneas O’Connell’s girlfriend as one of the top beauty gurus on YouTube. And recently she’s also been getting attention for her resemblance to Billie Eilish. So that you can differentiate between Eilish and Sulewski better (an important distinction, especially for O’Connell’s sake!), we’ve got Claudia Sulewski’s wiki right here.

After high school, Claudia Sulewski relocated from Chicago to Los Angeles.
Sulewski Started Her YouTube Career in Middle School
In 2009, while she was still a teen in Chicago, Sulewski launched her YouTube channel. What started as a typical teen’s vlog blew up with her makeup tutorials, fashion hauls, and nail art videos.

Her channel was hacked in 2010. But the young web guru returned, rebranding her channel as Beyond Beauty Star, and became more popular than ever.
By the age of 18, Sulewski had gone from 500,000 to one million subscribers and was a celebrity at her high school.
As of July 2019, she has 1.9 million subscribers, raking in around 400,000 views per video.
The young woman has monetized her fame, able to make an estimated $44,000 annually off YouTube. On Instagram, where Sulewski has over 1.2 million followers, she earns an estimated $2,400 to $4,000 per post. This Kylie Jenner fan is even followed by the Kylie Cosmetics page.
Claudia Sulewski’s career brought her to Los Angeles where she even did red carpet and review videos for Teen Vogue, Young Hollywood and Yahoo!. However, during her transition to the very geographical hub for influencers, fans complained that the quality of her videos had gone down.
This led to her posting a tearful video on the issue. “The reason why I moved out to L.A. was not for my YouTube channel,” she says in the video, “It was because of my YouTube channel.”
She Was Teen Vogue’s Official YouTube Host
Even the folks at Condé Nast Entertainment recognized Sulewski’s potential star status. The mega studio named her as a host for a series of videos on its Teen Vogue official YouTube channel in 2015.
Claudia Sulewski was one of the first influencers tapped for Teen Vogue’s platform. Her series of 10 videos for the magazine were a lot like her YouTube vlogs, but with the addition of interviews with stars like Dove Cameron, Grace Helbig, Zella Day, and Victoria Justice.
Sulewski Is an Actress
Though she has been a social media star for a decade, Sulewski’s goal is to be more than just another influencer. This dream led to her move to L.A. at the age of 18, with an eye on career opportunities beyond the Internet.
Sulewski pursued acting in Hollywood, even if she had no idea how to go about the process of auditions. She jokes that she often socialized with the casting crew at auditions unaware that auditionees are expected to be quick and get straight to business.
Being her own one-woman crew for her YouTube videos, Sulewski’s knack for catching the light and finding camera angles that work for her proved to be advantageous.
Claudia Sulewski has also acted in various web series, such as AwesomenessTV’s The Commute, [email protected], Versus, and more. On top of that, she’s featured alongside several other YouTube stars in the 2019 horror movie, Deadcon.
With Sulewski now dedicating most of her time to acting, fans felt she was neglecting them on YouTube. The multi-talented young woman even admitted that her YouTube channel has suffered in her pursuit of acting. But, even though she gets a lot of negative comments for the supposed decline in the quality of her YouTube content, she has learned to ignore them.

Finneas O’Connell Wrote a Song for Her
Claudia Sulewski had a brief relationship with fellow YouTube content creator, Jonah Green. She was also romantically linked to her on-screen boyfriend from The Commute, Steffan Argus.
Since 2018, Sulewski has been with Finneas O’Connell, better known as Billie Eilish’s brother and songwriter-producer. He has pursued a solo music career since 2016 (often referred to professionally as FINNEAS) and has also acted, including roles in the movie Bad Teacher and TV series Modern Family and Glee.
The romantic artist wrote the song “Claudia” after the night he first met Sulewski.
Fans have noticed that Claudia Sulewski and Billie Eilish look similar…but of course that’s just a coincidence. But there’s no lack of love between the two rising stars! In fact, Sulewski appears to be a bigger fan of the young pop star than Eilish’s own brother. Sulewski and her family have attended Eilish’s concerts, with the YouTube guru’s parents gushing about the young singer on their social media.
