"I'm great. Been working on a bunch of exciting campaigns currently and feeling super grateful," Gunja exclaims with an infectious enthusiasm that mirrors her online persona. The gleam in her eyes tells a story of dedication and devotion to her craft.

Gunja's day unfolds like a perfectly scripted routine, a glimpse into the life of Gunja - her real name. "So I start my day with affirmations, gratitude & exercises, followed by breakfast. I then follow up on emails & head to my studio for shoots. By evening I come back & then have dinner, edit a few videos & then sleep," she narrates, revealing a well-structured rhythm that fuels her creativity.

Her journey as an influencer has been nothing short of a rollercoaster ride, packed with twists, turns, and leaps of faith. "My journey has definitely been a rollercoaster. I started my page in November 2019 after quitting my high-paying job as I wanted to pursue my passion, beauty. Initially, I was creating videos for fun until it started picking up & eventually, my hard work paid off, leading to me grabbing multiple brand collaborations & now I'm here fulfilling my dreams one by one," Gunja shares, her eyes sparkling with the memories of her transformation.

Among the gems in her crown of content creation are the mesmerising recreations that have captivated her audience's hearts. "As a teenager, I was always fascinated with the makeup of Bollywood celebrities. I always wanted to look like my favourite actress. Then when I started experimenting with makeup, it boosted my confidence to recreate some celebrity-inspired makeup looks, and the kind of love my audience shows for it is impeccable," she explains, revealing the genesis of her creative series that marries art with admiration.

Gunja's playlist holds a melody that resonates deep within her soul. "Who Says" by Selena Gomez is a song she always finds herself returning to. "The lyrics uplift my mood. The song is all about self-confidence & how you shouldn't let anyone else define your worth and know who you actually are," she articulates, her voice carrying the weight of the song's empowering message.

The delicate art of balance is a skill that Gunja has perfected. "It's simple. By not rushing & stressing over. Also, by setting blocks of time for each task & practising mindfulness," she states, a glimpse into the poise that underlies her creative chaos.
