Do you come from a rich family?
No, I come from a normal, humble family that has enough. I myself work alongside my art, and still go to school to have a career in the medical field within the next few years. I prefer this life, because at least I get to appreciate everything I have, even the small things. I wasn't raised with much, so whatever I have now is a blessing to me.
what kind of advice would you give other models to get to where you are?
The most basic one would be to only do what you're comfortable with and go from there. It is important to step out of your comfort zone, but not to the point where you are doing what you hate. Only if you're truly and deeply motivated to do so, should you drop your comfort veil and step further.
Learn to say No and to make good decisions from the start of your career or work. It will save you lots of trouble in the future. Basically, be honest with yourself about what you are comfortable with doing and what you want to achieve. I say this to all artists, not just models. :)
Hi Foroogh! I'm a really big fan of yours and I love what you do! I just wanted to ask, around what age did you get interested in Goth subculture and what got you into it?
Thank you so much!
I got into this subculture when I was only 15. At first the fashion and art attracted me towards it. Artists like Victoria Francés truly inspired me and pulled me more towards this subculture.
I don't consider myself a proper Goth, but my style is definitely inspired by it.
do you answer all the questions sent to you?
No, because a lot of them are too personal, or have been answered before (here and in many other places). I encourage people to scroll down and read some of the past answers, as some of the most answered/popular questions have been answered already, more than once probably. :)
Do you like Rachel Brice?
I adore her! She's absolutely stunning and a big inspiration.
How many countries have you visited? BTW, my mom says you're beautiful. Regards from Mexico!
Just Iran (home country), Canada (where I live) and England. I have yet to travel around. Soon. :)
Much love to Mexico!
To have a behind the scenes to see how you work to have those wonderful foto's and videos would be awesome.. Is that possible for you to do?
I actually have 2 playlists on my YouTube with "Behind The Scenes" videos and more. :)
*Behind The Scenes:
do you like digital painting ? if you like I wanna make some portraits of yours with digital paintings ^^
I love art by others based on my photos! I cherish them. :)
Hello Foroogh! I love your work!
Since you were born in Tehran, Have you ever been to Armenia? :)
Thank you so much! I have never visited Armenia, but one day I would love to. It looks like a beautiful country.
What is you favourite perfume?
I love the scent of lavender.
Hello! I whould like to know what kind of make up do you use?
Won't you like to do a make up tutorial??
Greetings from Costa Rica :)
I would love to start doing tutorials, especially ones based on shoots that I have already done. If I do, I will definitely go through the detail of what I use and how I use them (as far as products go).
Greetings to Costa Rica!
Do you flat iron your hair? How did you grow it out?
I do. My natural hair is wavy. I just use lots of heat protection and natural products to keep it healthy and save it from burning. :) Otherwise flat ironing alone without protection will severely damage your hair if you do it more than once a week for years (like me).
How you became pale? I remember your old photos, you are not naturally pale.
I'm not that pale, although my natural (not sun tanned skin) is rather light for my nationality. I still have a golden undertone to my skin, which often shows in photos. Although my mother's side is Azerbaijani, so I got her lighter skin while my father has darker skin.
In my old photos I was very tanned, because I used to not care at all about sun protection. For around 3 years now, I really try not to stay under the sun for long, and when I am, I use lots of sunscreen. I'm not a fan of burning my skin and risking cancer to change my skin tone. :P
Did you have any other pets before Lunaria?
I had a gerbil, and then a teddybear hamster and a cat (that was super aggressive so we had to give her to a family who knew how to take care of her better than us) before Lunaria. This was around 2005.
And when I was very little, I had a yellow duck, a few street cats, and lots of chicks. During different times, though. Haha I may have been around 5 or 6.
Have you tried working with Faun "from Germany" ?
In one of your tweets you said you started watching Dexter. Now I must ask; did you like how it ended ?
***DEXTER SPOILER ALERT***
It was disappointing. I wish the show ended when the girl and the little boy were walking away... but then they had to add in that Dexter is in fact working as a lumberjack somewhere and hiding. It would have created more drama and emotions if we let go of the show thinking that he is dead. They took away the possibility of us letting go of the show on a dramatic, sad note. It became a bit lame because of that. :(
What kinda music you used to listen to as a little kid?
Up until the age of 14, I listened to any crap that was on the radio. :P
But I also grew up with my dad and grandfather playing traditional Persian music around the house. That was the only good music I was raised with.
Do you tie your hair when you go to sleep?
I don't, since then it would ruin the straightness of it. I just kind of let it lay there... and I often wake up with my hair trying to choke me to death, wrapper around my neck. Haha
When was the last time you cut your hair ?
Probably around a year ago. I trimmed it quite a bit last year.
Do you love 30 seconds to mars ? :)
I used to listen to them a lot when I was a teen. I still do, now and then, to their older stuff. It brings back a lot of memories of when I was a teenager.
Do you like to wake up early morning?
Only if I had enough sleep. It makes me feel more productive when I wake up early. But then again, I am also very productive at night and stay up extremely late to edit, work and be creative.
First world problems...
Do you smoke or have you ever smoked cigarettes or anything else (cigars, weed, e-cig, hookah etc.)?
I don't smoke anything, no. I have smoked hookah in the past as it is a family/gathering tradition where I come from. I'm generally concerned about my health as a dancer and a person who loves to sing. I need my lungs for both of those things.
I just vape, nicotine free. Pure VG (Vegetable Glycerin).
Do you have time to watch any TV series ?
If yes, which one(s) ? :)
Have a great day.
I do! I watch as I edit photos and such.
I'm currently watching Grey's Anatomy (I know, so old). I'm thinking of re-watching Breaking Bad and Prison Break. I don't think I'm ready to move to the epicness that is Game of Thrones just yet. It requires focus that I cannot give at the moment. :P
Do you believe in horoscope?
Wich keyboard do you use? Thank you :)
