If there is one person who has shaken up the global beauty scene in recent years, it’s Dubai-based beauty blogger Huda Kattan. This makeup maven slash YouTuber slash beauty entrepreneur, also named Time Magazine’s 25 most influential people on the internet, is all about glamorous yet effective products, which she herself creates and curates under her eponymous label.
Hugely popular on Instagram (it has more than a million followers), the brand is now available in India on Nykaa.

As Indians we might be a bit doubtful about foundations but a compact or loose powder is never off our list. Thanks to Kattan’s genius, we now have shades that suit Indian skin tones. Take your pick from Cupcake, Banana Bread, Cinnamon Bun, Coffee Cake, and Sugar Cookie, whose silky finishing powder is also great for sealing your foundation.
This palette is a great option because it’s like choosing a shade card. Of course, for Indian skin, these three palettes work beautifully: Warm Brown, Coral, and Mauve. The gemstones palette is a winner too, with nine beautiful bejewelled shades that are perfect for bridal makeup.
The most popular one from Huda Beauty is this versatile palette, particularly big with Indian bloggers. Stocked with 18 highly pigmented shades, ranging from just-blushed cream to ruby glitter via iridescent copper-pink, this one is great for work and play. The buttery mattes, the reflective duo-chromes, and the glitter formulas alongside the popular pressed pearl help create the softest, most dramatic looks.
This recent launch is a winner on all counts – a comfortable, hydrating cream lipstick that gives you a beautiful sheen while settling into a velvety, satin finish. It’s formulated with a hint of menthol, to give you a cooling effect while keeping the pigmented colour on for hours and also plumping the lips. Available in 15 shades, we love Moghul and Shero, both nude shades that work well on Indian skin.
This one seems subtle under the eyes but makes a dramatic difference to your overall look. The full coverage creamy concealer, armed with skincare actives and a cooling zamac tip, is perfect for late nights and early mornings. Everything is covered – from dark circles to redness to hyperpigmentation, age spots, and discoloration – with a beautiful luminous-matte finish. Available in 20 creamy, high-coverage shades ranging from fair to rich.
Give your lips a velvety touch with Huda’s eclectic range of Power Bullet lipsticks. From neutrals to sultry pinks, this matte lipstick collection includes colours that go perfectly well with various skin tones. Its innovative full coverage formula keeps your lips hydrated while giving them a matte finish.

Here’s your next go-to eye shadow that adds that extra bling to your eyes without leaving a trace of smudge. Huda’s 2-in-1 liquid eyeshadow is weightless and easy to apply, with a velvety matte formula on one end and a glittery liner on the other.

Now and then, your lips deserve a tint of glimmer and Huda brings just the perfect combination of application and effect. Composed of rich pigments with a dewy texture, this set of shimmery lip gloss lies soft and even on your lips, making them shine from every angle.
