Huda Kattan, blogger, Youtuber and boss lady of an entire beauty empire – Huda Beauty. The self-made beauty guru who has a fan following of 23.9+ million followers on Insta and 2.1million on Youtube, has taken the beauty world by a storm. The makeup genie who was all over our news for gracing the cover of Grazia, India, January 2018 issue, is once again breaking the internet for her recent collaboration with India’s leading beauty portal, Nykaa. The beauty maven, who needs no introduction, was recently seen indulging in a tête-à-tête with a leading daily.
On being asked about she feels to be one of Instagram’s most influential and successful women, Huda said that she feels highly honored and takes her role very seriously. She further added, “. I think a title like that comes with great responsibility not only to share my knowledge of beauty products but also as a brand owner, to create products that will help shape the beauty industry.”
When questioned about what she thinks about Indian women and their makeup technique, Huda shared, “Indian women are naturally beautiful! What I love about them is that they tend to have strong features, which they play up rather than mute it down — so instead of a nude lip and neutral eyes, you’ll see them with gorgeous red lips and a dark, smokey eye. Indian women have the most expressive eyes, so those should be highlighted. They can do this with dark eyeshadow, cat-eye liner, false lashes and full brows for a really striking look.”
She also spoke about how individuality, embracing one’s uniqueness and being confident in one’s own skin should be a trend in 2018.
And lastly, a word of advice for all beginners who’re just setting their foot in the industry, “Definitely, experiment until you find what works best for your skin tone and features. What works for your best friend won’t necessarily do the trick for you, so just play around a bit.”
