Become Your Own Boss Babe: Nazifa Rahman

What does being a Boss Babe mean to you? 

Being a boss babe to me means someone who young girls can look up to be a good example and role model that can empower their own unquie beauty.


Can you remember the first time you truly fell in love with makeup?

I was about 7 during a family gathering when someone gifted my mom a makeup set. I remember my mom graciously thanking the guest and asking me to put the “gift away”. Several hours later when everyone was looking to call me for dinner they found me covered head to toe in red lipstick and mascara in my parents’ closet. From that point on I knew I was in love.


What are your top 3 MUST HAVE favourite products in your bag?

I am a minimalist, I like to do my makeup, set it and don’t look back until I need to take it all off but I will always have some sort of Lip balm, blotting paper and a mini mascara.


What is your favourite beauty tip/trick that the #bbm community NEEDS to know?

I always apply Vaseline to my lashes and brows at night. I find that it moisturizes the hairs which helps them after all the products I have applied during the day. I also think it helps grow them to be thick!


How do you have the confidence to ROCK such amazing and dramatic makeup looks?

I always find myself the one usually the most decked out at any given party and event because being a full time student I usually just roll out of bed minutes before I need to be at uni for so it is my time to have fun and makeup is meant to be fun! When I doll up its me being creative and expressing myself which automatically makes me feel confident and beautiful.


Do you feel a greater sense of confidence with or without your makeup on?

I personally can’t choose one over the other because in contrast to my Instagram my snapchat revels my true self which is 90% of the time makeup free. I feel comfortable in my own skin to be without a drop of makeup but boy do I love some nice contour.


How do you stay positive with so many trolls and haters on the internet?!

The hardest criticism comes when you’re doing something right. I laugh when people I don’t know have a reason to hate. I think it’s important to stay true to yourself and remain grounded. I don’t give haters the attention they so desperately crave.


Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

I see myself becoming a full time humanitarian no matter where in the world I am or what my career profession is. I would like to be someone making a difference in the world and setting good examples to empower the upcoming youth…and hopefully being a mom by then, I love kids and I would want some of my own someday.


Love Naz
