With over 800,000 followers on her Instagram account, Maya Ahmad has firmly secured her position as one of the biggest beauty influencers in the region. “I must have been about five-years-old when I got into beauty. I always used to steal my mom’s makeup and hide it in my closet. I used to get into so much trouble,” she reveals to Savoir Flair while sitting amongst a pool of products on our Beauty Routine shoot. “My aunt was a really well-known makeup artist in the US and she used to vacation in Lebanon for a month every year. I would literally count down the days until she came as she always brought makeup for me!”

Splitting her time between Beirut and Dubai, the Lebanese beauty took the social media world by storm and was an instant hit with women across the Middle East. “I didn’t know that I was going to be in the makeup industry, but when I was 17, Instagram happened and I started posting my makeup looks and so many people liked them. I was writing in Arabic, so I got so much traffic from the GCC as I was one of the first people to write about products in Arabic. People here love makeup — and Instagram!”
