Mus­lim in­flu­encers are di­ver­si­fy­ing the fash­ion in­dus­try, lead­ing a fash­ion rev­o­lu­tion like never be­fore and the world is pay­ing at­ten­tion

The Star Early Edition - - VERVE -

money for a post, they end up post­ing con­tent that is much less au­then­tic than their usual stuff, and their fol­low­ers no­tice this.

Even­tu­ally, if done cor­rectly, your plat­form will start to make money nat­u­rally with­out com­pro­mis­ing it­self.

I see too many peo­ple try­ing to mon­e­tise way too early and as a re­sult they stunt the growth of their plat­form.

Q: What is your daily beauty rou­tine?

A: I tend to fo­cus more on skin care on a daily ba­sis, more than ac­tual make-up. Cleans­ing and mois­tur­is­ing in the morn­ing and evening is a must for me. I love look­ing fresh and awake. The make-up I use to help achieve this look is a water-based foun­da­tion, Con­cealer for my dark un­der eyes, bushy brows, blush, nat­u­ral-look­ing high­light and hy­drated lips.

Q: Who is your favourite de­signer?

A: I wouldn’t say I have a favourite, but cur­rently I’m ob­sess­ing over UAE-based de­sign­ers like Hessa Falasi.

Q: What is the one fash­ion item that you couldn’t live with­out?

A: Mom jeans or straight cut jeans.

Q: What is the ul­ti­mate fash­ion item that you dream of pur­chas­ing?

A: An Abaya from Hessa Falasi (I don’t care which one, as long as she de­signed it).

Q: Your tips on how to take the per­fect out­fit pho­to­graph for In­sta­gram?

A: Have an amaz­ing pho­tog­ra­pher and team on a well planned set. Take hun­dreds of shots and spend hours edit­ing the per­fect ones.

In­sta­gram is the world’s No 1 fash­ion pub­lish­ing plat­form, but for those who don’t take it that se­ri­ously, be con­fi­dent in your look. Also, great light­ing can make av­er­age smart­phone cam­eras take amaz­ing im­ages.
