Zahrah Aliyah Makdum
This Sydney-based beauty influencer of Fijian-Indian heritage didn’t start wearing makeup until late in the game (at 19, if you must know). That didn’t stop her from creating her own channel where she shows brown girls like her that if you have someone showing you the ropes, makeup can be an amazing avenue for creativity.
Beauty Tip: "Bake your undereyes using the Ben Nye Banana Powder to prevent creasing. This powder is the perfect yellow shade to help highlight and bring forward the undereye area on darker skin tones. I prefer this one over others because it's so finely milled that it doesn't make you look cakey," suggests Makdum.
