I’m Syahirah Aqila binti Azlah, a 23-years-old from from Johor Bahru. You can call my by Qira, Aqira, Shirah and Syahirah but please don’t call me Azlah! That’s my father’s name haha. I aspire to continually grow and further develop my talent within the Film-making industry.
I don’t have one since I’m currently in my final year where I major in Creative Technology (Film)

Since I’m a student, I don’t have a career yet. But if you consider Youtube as a career, then I started it around the end of 2015
I’m in my final year in Film degree and I will be graduating this June! Yay for that!
Favorite new beauty products
Hm, I don’t think I can choose! Everything is my favorite haha
How I spend my time?
Honestly, I prefer spending my time at home and doing a movie marathon. I can spend 5 to 9 hours watching movies in just one day! But if I were to go out on my free days, I would make sure that I watch movies at the cinema.
Recommended places in Malaysia
I’d like to recommend people to visit Mossy Forest Gunung Brinchang, Cameron Highland although I myself have never been there yet haha.
Mantra I believe in
Take your broken heart, make it into art
What’s in my makeup bag?
I don’t have a lot with me, just some basics. I have the Pixy compact powder in Tropical Beige, 2 in 1 Eyebrow pencil from Zawara Glam code 02, Elianto blush powder in Tangerine, Silkygirl Open Eye Mascara, Cocoblanc foundation Stick & Dream & Kiss Liquid Matte lipstick in Asher/Chocolate Cake. So, I put all of these items in a small pencil box, just so that it’s easy for me to do some touch-ups after I pray.
Describe your personal style
I’m not pretty! Haha I’m clumsy and messy and I’m sure there are tons of girls who are better than me! But I’m an extremely passionate person when it comes to filming, directing, editing, theaters, acting and Art. And oh, I’m from the first generation of Malaysia Art School, Johor Bahru where I majored in theater & acting from Form 1 until Form 5

What makes me smile the most?
It would definitely be all the memories during school! I was the naughtiest student and I bet all the teachers didn’t like me very much back then haha
How I got started in makeup?
Since I was 6 years old! I remember that my mom giving me a Barbie Makeup set and watching her do her makeup. After that when I was in Form 1, I entered the Art School where I learned a lot about beauty and special effect makeup. It was when I took a diploma that I started to be more serious and learn everything, created a Youtube channel and until now, tadaa! This is where I am now!
Traditional menus such as Asam Pedas Ikan Pari, Tempoyak Ikan Talapia, Cencalok, Sambal Belacan, Budu & SOY SAUCE (this is a must for me!)
The last book that I read
Filme genre & Status Quo. I actually don’t like reading! I even don’t read long captions and I usually won’t finish reading them haha.
The smell of Johnson Baby and Carrie Junior’s powder.
Purse, key house and toothpicks because I wear braces.
Instagram or Snapchat
Both, I guess
My lazy girl beauty staple
Eyebrow and lip balm but if I were too lazy I would just go out bare-faced!
