Early Life

Farah Dhukai was born to parents of Indian descent. For several generations, her family lived in East Africa; her mother's family is from Tanzania​ and her father's family is from Uganda​. She, however, was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario​.[22]

 

During the summer of 2000, entering ninth grade, Farah became more of a girl's girl. After developing a stronger bond with her older sister, she started borrowing a lot of her clothes and using her makeup. She also grew her hair out a lot longer at this point, as well.[23]

 

Education

By the time she graduated high school, she still wasn't sure what she wanted to do with her life. One of her male friends told her to try going to a makeup art school. She took his advice and enrolled in a 3-month program at the School of Makeup Art in downtown Toronto.[23]

 

In February 2007, after getting her father to agree, Farah Dhukai moved to New York City​. Living with her friend in Manhattan, she enrolled in the Aveda Institute's cosmetology science program.

 

In November 2007, she graduated from the program with an honor's diploma in the makeup industry. [8]

Career

One month after graduating, her grandmother passed away. This impacted her immensely, as she would quit many jobs after working for only four hours. This continued for a period of two years.[23]

 

However, things changed three years later.

YouTube (Makeup Videos)

In 2010, Farah came across Michelle Phan​ on YouTube​. She started watching her makeup tutorials and really admired what she was doing.[23]

 

She joined the YouTube community on June 5, 2010. However, she did not feel comfortable posting any of her videos because she did not feel confident enough. She eventually posted her first video, "How to get Long Shiny Healthy Hair! -- My Haircare Routine!" to the public on February 24, 2011.​[12]

 

As her channel grew, she started receiving messages of inspiration from her audience, telling her that she changed her life. This helped push her to continue making videos on a consistent basis.[23]

In August 2016, Farah Dhukai left YouTube and started posting more often on her Instagram​ account. At the time, she felt like she was not getting as many views as she once did. Reflecting on that time period, she said she cared too much about her abnormally low numbers and, as a result, felt like people did not like her videos anymore.[19]

 

As a result, she took to Instagram because those videos were getting a lot more engagement. However, she received no money from the platform whatsoever.[19]

 

However, in August 2017, she posted a video announcing her comeback on YouTube and vowed to upload one video every week to her channel.[19]

Farsali

In late 2015, Farah Dhukai started a website called Farsali. Her goal was to create a platform that bridged the gap between makeup and skincare.[25]

 

Farsali currently offers 5 products on their website, ranging from moisturizers to skin creams, to eyelash enhancers.[26]

  • She is a self-proclaimed introvert.[19]​ During her high school years, she found that she did not like to socialize and go to parties as much as her friends did.[23]​ She also finds it rather difficult to be self-expressive and needs time to reflect on many things.[19]

  • For a large part of her childhood, her older brother convinced her that she was a product of an unplanned pregnancy, due to her age difference. He told her a story about how he once had another sister named Farah, but their parents sold her with a car because she was extremely naughty. He added that he found her when he was forced to clean the new car they bought. He allegedly washed her off and showed her to their parents; they decided to keep her and name her Farah. After hearing this story, Dhukai was afraid that she was going to be sold if she acted poorly.[23]

Her aunt ended up keeping the cat and took care of it, even after Farah left Kenya; they named him Dimuri.[23]
