The University of Miami student, who happens to be in an on-and-off relationship with Yankees baseball player Tyler Wade, 28, has fans gushing over her beauty and relatable persona, causing every product she loves to become sold out within minutes.

Hailed as the internet’s ‘hot best friend’, Alix’s candid ‘get ready with me’ videos see her discussing a variety of hot-button topics, including her struggles with acne and anxiety – as well as her wild nights out in Miami, where she is currently studying.  

Alix also rakes in serious cash from her content, making more than $70,000 per post, and with each post she makes Gen-Z become even more obsessed as they desperately try to achieve her killer body and get their hands on every product in her beauty routine. 

And while the world knows Alix through a social-media lens, you can get to know all there is to know about Gen-Z’s queen bee – from her childhood to her love life – that has nearly everyone wrapped around her perfectly-painted finger.

The beauty comes from a long line of luxury. 

Alix isn’t just raking it in with posts, she is also a construction company heiress. 

Her dad, Thomas or TJ Earle, 49, owns a lucrative construction company that has been around for 54 years and are essentially responsible for the building of every property in New Jersey.  

Alix is currently enrolled at the University of Miami’s Herbert Business School, but when she isn’t posting her next viral clip, she is an intern at her family’s company. 

And the reason Alix is such a pro at being in the spotlight may be because she grew up in it. 

Her father TJ – who serves as The Earle Companies CEO – made headlines back in 2008 following a high-profile breakup. 

Reports the CEO was cheating on his then wife and Alix’s mom Alisa began to flood the internet. 

And soon enough, news broke that TJ had been secretly seeing Ashley Dupre, who went on to rock the world of politics as it was revealed she was a sex worker at the Emperors Club VIP escort agency, which counted former New York governor Eliot Spitzer as a client, and eventually prompted him to resign from office.

According to Ashley, she has three children and ‘two bonus babies,’ which seems to refer to Alix and her sister, Ashtin, whom are from TJ’s marriage with Alisa.  

In addition to Ashtin, Alix’s siblings also include Izabel, Penelope, and Thomas James. 

And the social media icon seems to already be teaching her siblings how to get the in with Gen-Z as she frequently includes young sister Penelope in her ‘get ready with me videos,’ and even allowed the youngster to do her makeup in one video, causing every fan to wish they were apart of the tightknit – and ever so wealthy – family.
