Lets Know about Huda Kattan : Founder of Huda Beauty


Huda was born on October 2, 1983 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She is a Makeup artist, Beauty blogger, entrepreneur. Huda attended the University of Michigan–Dearborn where she majored in finance.

In 2006, Huda moved to Dubai with her father. A few years later, Huda moved to Los Angeles, where she studied makeup.

After becoming the new ‘it’ product for Kim Kardashian, Huda Beauty lashes sold out within the first day, making makeup queen Kattan a person to look out for. Since then, her beauty empire has expanded to skincare with the launch of her new range Wishful, promoting natural, glowing skin.
