It takes about five seconds of scrolling through Huda Kattan’s Instagram feed (@hudabeauty) to realise the extent of her appeal. When she dry shaves her facial hair, so does the rest of the world. When she attempts a crazy beauty hack or a sultry eyeshadow look, she sets a new social media standard. If the Internet is a kingdom, she is its queen. As her eponymous make-up line Huda Beauty finally makes its Indian debut on Nykaa.com, Huda Kattan’s best beauty tips will cure your every ‘morning face’ problem.
“I partied too hard and have puffy under-eye bags.”
Huda Kattan: I use a jade roller to make it look like I’ve had 10 hours of sleep. Cool the stone in the refrigerator and roll it under your eyes to soothe your skin, boost blood circulation and eliminate the toxins that cause puffiness. Then, top it off with a caffeine-based eye cream, like The Ordinary’s Caffeine Solution 5%.
“My liquid matte lipstick gives me chapped lips.”
HK: Pop some honey on parched lips for 15 to 20 minutes to moisturise and soften them. You can also try a lightweight lipstick like the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte, which contains beeswax and olive oil to keep those hydration levels in check.
“Mascara isn’t enough for my skinny lashes.”
HK: I’m addicted to false lashes, but you can also try this simple trick. First, apply a coat of mascara. Then, roll a spoolie brush in a cotton ball until the brush is coated with tiny fibres. Brush it over your wet mascara to deposit small bits of cotton and top it off with another coat. Your lashes will look super long and won’t clump either.
