Behind the Screen of Farah Bassem

Hello my lovelies, I’m excited to tell you today I’m interviewing the youngest blogger I know, but the most driven person I have ever met in my life. Her name is Farah, she is 15 years old and lives in Egypt (Middle East). She has 2 years left to finish her IGCSE’s at school, and then she’s planning to study Graphic Designing at Uni. Farah talks about how she’s a makeup freak and how at 15 she has her own business.

What were you doing before blogging and how did you get in to it?

Before blogging, I was just that typical nerd at school with no social life, no extracurricular activities. I got into blogging after the worst and the most depressing moments of my life. I was basically about to give up on life when I coincidentally started watching some tutorials and for no reason, I started following makeup brands on my Private IG account. And Lord, out of nowhere I started to get follow requests from big bloggers, which boosted my self-confidence and miraculously motivated me to start my career in the makeup industry.

What’s the best thing you’ve done so far within your blog?

To be honest, I’ve been blogging only for 6 -7 Months. So as a young teenager, I got to admit that I’ve learnt a lot! More than anything else, this has changed my mind about my content, theme and I’m proud to say, that my followers should notice a huge difference on my page in the coming few weeks.

Who is your biggest influence?

My biggest influence to be honest, is any success story or any motivating part in someone’s life. I try not to put my hopes high on anyone cause you know, we’re all imperfect and social media can be so tricky and fake at times. So I’m always working on staying original and real.

Best advice you’ve ever been given?

The best advice I’ve been given is ‘Never give up no matter how long it takes to achieve your dreams cause hard work will pay off one day’ and it’s the beautiful Nikkie Tutorials whom I’ve learnt from the most.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I make sure to pamper myself and distance my mind a little bit from people, work and everything! Sometimes, I spend my time checking Sephora’s website for a new shopping list! LOL! Makeup freak, as you can see.

Favourite beauty brands on at the moment?

My favourite beauty brand at the moment must be Fenty Beauty! Thanks Riri for being a perfectionist.

What is a typical day in your life?

I get so bored of a routine, so I try to spend each day differently, and I’m quite sure it’s pretty easy for me as long as I’m working on my own business (Slaked Collections). Every day, I’m given a chance to create designs and go wild with creativity! Sometimes, I do my makeup when bored, to be honest.

Your work is honestly amazing! You’re an inspiration girl!

Tell me more about Slaked Collections.

I’m an owner of a small business, Slaked Collections. We design notebooks, makeup bags and anything that would add a cute tinge to your life. Currently, I’m working on getting an office for my team and designers.

What one product couldn’t you live without?

One product I can’t live without is Contour!

Ooh I do love a bit of bronzer myself!

Three words to describe you?

Driven. Loving. Perfectionist

How would you describe your personal style?

So extra!

Drugstore or high-end gal?

I don’t care if it’s high-end or a drugstore product as long as I love it. But mostly I’m a high-end Gal!

Best advice to bloggers.

My best advice is to have patience no matter how long it’s taking and no matter how fast others may grow! It’ll be fair, I promise. Work hard and ignore those who don’t believe in you and kill them with your success!

Beautiful words Farah!
