Female (Malaysia) - - BEAUTYPHILE -

At a ten­der age of 19, Athi­rah Kamaruzzaman (or bet­ter known to her fans as Tyra) started her own brand, BeauTyra, bring­ing qual­ity makeup to Malaysians at an af­ford­able price. She dishes on her jour­ney of start­ing her brand, her favourite prod­ucts and re­calls the first time she wore makeup.

What was your ear­li­est me­mory of play­ing with makeup or skin­care?

“I’m not sure when this was ex­actly, but my ear­li­est me­mory of play­ing with makeup was see­ing my sis­ter dab­ble with it. I would sneak up on her to see what she was do­ing and if she wasn’t watch­ing, I’ll play and ex­per­i­ment with her prod­ucts!”

What made you want to start your brand? “I’m a huge fan of ev­ery­thing beau­tyre­lated. It’s hon­estly my pas­sion! I fell in love with makeup and skin­care when I was 14. I love play­ing with colours and ap­ply­ing sheet masks. I wanted to start a brand that young­sters like me would love and en­joy with­out be­ing over­priced. Hence, why BeauTyra was born!”

If you could swap lives with any­one in the world, who would it be and why?

“I’d love to swap lives with Kylie Jen­ner! (laughs) I’d love noth­ing more than to see how she runs her bil­lion-dol­lar busi­ness and live in her shoes!”

What are three prod­ucts in your skin­care or makeup rou­tine that you can’t live with­out?

“Oh, this is a toughie for a makeup lover like my­self. But if I’d have to choose, I’d say makeup re­mover, face wash and sun­block! You should never for­get your SPF.”

If this wasn’t your ca­reer now, what would you be do­ing?

“I think I’d prob­a­bly do some­thing re­lated to beauty. Prob­a­bly be a makeup artist or an aes­theti­cian, or take makeup and hair cour­ses!”
