Describe yourself in less than 10 words.
Reserved, passionate, creative and most definitely practical.
What is the proudest accomplishment of your life so far?
Definitely finishing my bachelor’s degree in Architecture. After all those sleepless nights and tight deadlines, taking architecture has taught me so many things along the way that made me who I am today.
What’s a typical weekday like for you?
Waking up to a cup of a hot caramel macchiato, getting ready for a productive day at the office and getting home to my family.
Who are your style icons?
We love your IG feed and your stylish aesthetic! Who do you follow on Instagram to get inspiration?
Honestly, most of my inspiration come from Pinterest as they provide a large platform for almost anything and inspiration from A – Z!
What item in your closet do you wear the most?
I would definitely say my oversized white shirt. It goes with almost anything.
What’s your favourite Zahara product?
I would have to say the halal ALL DAY MATTE LIPSTICK as it lasts me throughout the day. It doesn’t require me to reapply my lipstick, especially being in the office from 9 – 6. Phew!
What’s a makeup no-no?
Applying too much makeup is a BIG make up no-no for me. Makeup is supposed to “enhance” one’s beauty, so never depend entirely on makeup to make yourself feel beautiful!
Complete this sentence: A beautiful woman is someone who is ______.
A beautiful woman is someone who is confident of herself, well-mannered, responsible and respects her upbringing.
As a Zahara Warrior, what advice would you give someone hoping to be a beauty influencer (like yourself)?
Just be yourself! It’s important to always be confident and passionate in whatever you do and anything you wear. Everything else will shine through.
