Meet Our Muse: The Boss Editor Behind Our New Kahlana Lash

Beauty News

Huda Beauty Kahlana lash

From being inspired by her bold, eclectic style on Instagram and falling head over heels on our first intro, we just knew we needed to collab with boss ass babe Kahlana Barfield Brown. So, when we started our lash collaboration journey for our next generation lash collection, beauty and fashion editor Kahlana was an obvious choice.

When we created the lash, we knew it had to mimic Kahlana’s effortlessly cool style and the result is a beautifully wispy, synthetic lash.

The Kahlana #21 Lash

We really wanted to create an edgy yet elegant everyday lash that would work for Kahlana’s hectic editor schedule – a lash that would be glam and bold for daytime but also elegant for evening events. The result is a unique, layered crosscross design that adds volume at the base but has a sexy, whispy finish with longer synthetic lashes along the edges. The fanned-out design also works to elongate and lift the eye and make them look bigger while the new clear lash band gives a natural finish.

Kahlana on the Lashes

“We went back and forth for over a year to design the perfect sexy wispy lash and we made sure we didn’t stop until it was flawless!”

Kahlana on the Collaboration

“It was so refreshing to me to be partnering with a major brand who values inclusion and diversity in beauty. They [Huda Beauty] understand representation matters and I respect them for it! I was coming from a different space in the industry, having worked for years in editorial.  They knew and respected my work as a beauty editor and loved that I brought something different to the table. Their team is a well-oiled machine, and everyone is such a pleasure to work with.

3 reasons why Kahlana is our Huda Beauty muse:

1. She works hard for what she wants

Kahlana started out as an intern at InStyle Magazine and worked her way up to become Fashion and Beauty Editor. She’s also raising a gorgeous daughter all at the same time.
