What’s On Huda’s Desk This Week

A few of my favorite things…

WOHD - 1

Sunglasses – I’m obsessed with big, mirrored sunglasses like these that I picked up in Korea.

Beautyblender Pro – I love Beautyblenders! Their black one has always been my favorite because it just looks so elegant and more luxurious than the rest.

Huda Beauty lashes in Lana #10 – The Lana lashes are one of our boldest. I think these look particularly nice for somebody who has a strong brow bone like myself.

Suratt Beauty Relevée Lash Curler
– There’s something really cool about the matte black. Suratt Beauty is a brand I really love, and this eyelash curler works particularly well on almond-shaped eyes.

Forever Roses black rose – I’m definitely going through a black phase. There’s something very heavy and rich about it. I have a few of these at the office.

Diptyque Roses candle – All of Diptyques candles smell so soft and pretty. It’s not overpowering and I’m obsessed with the Roses scent. I’ve lived in the States for a long time, and in Dubai for a long time and this floral fragrance I feel works in both areas. It transcends and works wherever you are.

M2 Beauté Eyelash Activating Serum – Funny enough, Revitalash isn’t working as well on me like it used to! This brought my lashes back to life. The only thing is the serum is kind of strong, so you might feel a burning sensation when you use it, which I found a little uncomfortable around my eyes. But it does work in making my lashes super thick. I bought this at Harrod’s during my last trip in London, and liked it so much, I bought three more.

Chanel Gardénia perfume – I love Chanel’s Gardénia particularly because it can stand on its own but is still so light that can also mix well with other fragrances. I have one at home and one on my desk. I bought two by accident. Well, not really by accident…kind of by accident.

Ariana Grande VMA-inspired Makeup Tutorial!

I’ve been really feeling Ariana Grande’s style lately, and thought I’d recreate the look she did for the VMA’s this year! The makeup is very signature Ariana, cute and very wearable. This could work for so many different occasions – on or off the red carpet! The bangs and choker makes it feel very 90s inspired, what do you think?

Challenge Video: Doing Full Face Makeup Using ONLY School Supplies

Hey my loves! So after dropping my daughter Nour off at school for orientation, I was inspired to try a fun makeup challenge where I do my makeup using ONLY school supplies (yes, even for my foundation!). It was a little tricky but I tried to stick to the challenge and reveal a few fun facts about me when I was in school while I do it :). Let me know what you think! (And don’t worry, everything we used was non toxic and this was just for fun!).

The Must-Have Brow Collection from Benefit!

Guys, you know how I feel about good brows. The right shape is a MUST to frame and create harmony for your face. I pretty much fell in love with Benefit’s new brow collection, which has all you need to shape and fill your brows to perfection. I was so excited when they asked me to make the global exclusive announcement of its launch! In the video, I talk about my favorite products from the collection and how I use them…take a look!

How to Nontour Your Face!

Hey my loves! So you know how much I love contouring, but some people actually prefer the opposite, aka “nontouring.” Like the name suggests, it’s a more highlighter-focused look with little to none contour. I have to admit, it’s not my personal favorite makeup look since I love the slimming effect a good contour can give you! But I thought I’d let you decide for yourself by doing a quick tutorial on it.

Does the Peel Off Brow Tint Work?


By Huda Heidi Kattan

Hey my loves!!! I picked up an interesting product from Korea recently: a peel off brow tint. It’s exactly what it sounds like…you use something that looks like a mascara wand to apply the dark gel to your eyebrows where you want it darker. After it dries a few minutes later, you simply peel it off and voila! A tint is left behind. It comes in a few different shades, but the real question is, does it work? Check out the video where I test it on my sister, Alya, to see what we thought!!
