Who am I? 

My Name is Simmy Goraya. I am a Beauty and Lifestyle YouTube, Based out of Mumbai.

My journey

Makeup has always been an important part of my life, right from being obsessed about Kajals and lip balms in school, to doing makeup on everybody in my family, to spending an entire summer vacation watching beauty videos, but I never really thought that I would make a living out of it someday.

I pursued an MBA, worked in a corporate for about a year before I decided to quit and get into the Beauty Industry. At the time there were not many Beauty Influencers and I saw that as an opportunity for myself as the beauty industry is growing day by day. Its been about 2 years since I started with YouTube, and it hasn’t been easy but I think I’ve finally found my space.

Our family

I mostly work alone, but I do have a team of photographers, videographers  and editors for outdoor shoots
