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.

Beauty Glossary: Baking

bakingBaking /bay·king/

A technique with origins in the drag community to set your makeup for a poreless, flawless finish. It requires applying a thick coat of translucent powder over your foundation areas you want to look brighter as a final step, and letting it sit for five to ten minutes. Afterwards, dust it off using a clean, fluffy brush. Helps to add extra highlight on the areas you want to emphasize.

Common areas to “bake” are underneath the eyes, along your jawline, on the center of your forehead, and down the center of your nose. This technique to soak up any excess oils from your foundation and concealer to smooth out the skin.

Also referred to as “cooking” your face.

Tools required for a proper baking session:

1) Translucent powder (Huda’s pick: Givenchy Mat & Translucent-finish Loose Powder, Ben-Nye Luxury Powder)
2) A Beautyblender sponge
3) A dome, fluffy brush (Huda’s pick: Sigma Beauty’s F15 Duo Fibre Powder/Blush Brush)

Tip: Use a wet BeautyBlender to apply the powder to your face (Huda’s preferred method). For heavier coverage, use a powder puff.

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!).

Our Weird Hidden Talents!

Sooo this video is a little different than my usual ones! My team noticed that I have a lot of random talents, so we decided to make a video of them. We ended up having so much fun shooting this – I even pulled some of my team members and my family in on this one! Get ready for a lot of strange animal sounds, and possibly even some singing :). Check it out below and let me know what you think!

Do you have any hidden talents yourself?! Let me know in the comments.
