    Arshia Moorjani Created The Content She Wanted To See, And Now She's A Full-Time Influencer

    Here's a look into Arshia Moorjani's beauty room, as in a bedroom turned cosmetic paradise.

    In just three and a half years, Arshia Moorjani has amassed over 230,000 Instagram followers and more than 350,000 YouTube subscribers. Before she bossed up as an entrepreneur and full-time beauty and style influencer, Moorjani was working your standard 9-to-5. Shortly after, the social star began creating the content she wanted to see, never even considering that YouTube and Instagram would lead to a viable career and lucrative income.

    We hit up Moorjani to get the scoop on tips for aspiring influencers, plus the most random things — like if she'd rather her phone die or if she'd rather use a porta potty. And you know we had to get a look at her beauty collection, too. There's not even a closet big enough to store her products, much less a makeup bag, so she transformed an entire bedroom into a beauty space! The beauty room is very much like if Pinterest and Sephora got married, had a baby, and lived happily ever after.

    Bookcase that holds a lot of my makeup/books but also doubles as my backdrop in most of my videos.

    On average, how many beauty products do you get a month and where in the world do you store them all?

    It's a bit crazy, but I would say I receive at least three to five packages a day. Some days I get less and other days I get a lot more. I go through packages once a week and keep what I like and what works for my skin tone, and I host giveaways or donate the rest. It is just too much makeup for me to keep on my own so I love sharing with others!

    My friend Jovan, @ponyy_boyy, did this drawing of me and I am so in love with it! I love displaying it in my beauty room.

    Another look at my setup!

    How long have you been influencing and why'd you chose the beauty and women's lifestyle space?

    I loved beauty for long as I can remember. I worked at MAC years ago and gained so much knowledge about makeup application from my time there. I left MAC to work in fashion corporate and I became obsessed with YouTube videos. I loved watching makeup tutorials but never saw someone who looked like me talking about makeup, so I thought, why not me? I started to share my favorite beauty products that worked for my skin tone. I never went into YouTube or social media with the intention of making it my full-time job. I just wanted to share makeup that I loved with others, but here we are today, almost three and a half years later, and I absolutely love what I do and I'm so grateful for my job as a full-time beauty influencer.

    I love this little corner. I often sit here to do work or just play with makeup! I also love using makeup as decor for my beauty room. My friends come over all the time and take whatever they want.

    Your job seems like it's all glam, all the time. What's a downside that people don't get to see?

    Anyone that works for themselves understands the struggle of managing your business life with personal life. I find myself working 10 to 12 hours almost daily because there is just so much to do. I am currently working on building out my team to have a better work/life balance because this is the one area I struggle with the most.

    Another favorite part of my beauty room! This is where I house most of my makeup, jewelry and perfumes! I love having everything on display, which allows me to use things more often.

    I love these gorgeous roses from @Venusetfleur, which is a company founded by my friend Seema, @bseema101. These are my favorite flowers because they are stunning and last over a year! Plus, a quick look at *some* of my makeup brushes along with my 100,000 YouTube subscriber plaque.

    What's your number one favorite product you'd buy even if you couldn't get it for free?

    SPF! I am obsessed and go through my sun care products so quickly! Even though I receive so many makeup and skincare products, this is the one category that I am always purchasing for myself.

    This is my skincare inventory of all products that I have yet to use. I love serums so much and I organize them by category so I can test out and review for my audience. Also love testing out new sheet masks, facial mists and more!

    Here is my filming setup, which I love and have had for years. I have a tripod for my camera (Canon T6i), attached to a basic monitor which helps me see myself as I film. I also have two massive soft boxes on the side, along with a ring light to ensure that the entire video frame is well lit. This is a very basic, simple video setup that works so well for me.

    I love sorting out each drawer in my collection by type of makeup so its easy for me to find things as I need them. Makes it so easy to also keep clean and organized.

    It seems like everyone is an influencer these days. What advice would you give aspiring digital stars on standing out?

    This is going to sound so cliche, but you have to remember to be yourself. Once I truly understood this simple concept, my life changed forever. Another thing I would suggest to any new aspiring influencers is to come from a place of servicing your audience and providing them with valuable content. Everything else will follow.

    I am so thankful to receive so much makeup as a beauty blogger, but truly do not need so much of it. I am very picky with what stays in my collection so I love hosting giveaways for my audience. They love it as well, so its such a win-win!

    Keep up with Arshia on Instagram and YouTube!
