The blogger and founder of her eponymous brand talks candidly...
Snuggled under a silky silver blanket on a curved couch in an extremely posh London hotel suite, dark eyes sparkling and glossy waves bouncing as she talks, Huda Kattan is every bit as glamorous and gregarious in person as she appears to her 30 million (and rising) Instagram followers.
On a visit to the capital to promote her latest creation, Kayali perfume, the Dubai-based beauty blogger turned brand founder is loving the festive feeling in the city.
“I honestly want to move here. I love it so much,” she says, rainbow-hued nails glinting as she gestures enthusiastically.
And with the Huda Beauty company she founded in 2013 – after training as a make-up artist and starting a blog three years earlier – bringing in an estimated £158 million a year (according to Forbes), a UK move isn’t just a pipe dream for its CEO.
“We opened our office in LA, and we opened our office in the UK, and then our main office is in Dubai, so I really think I’m going to have homes in all those locations.”
