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. And as the platform readies to launch her new demi-matte lipsticks, baking powders, and concealers, we decided to answer the question most ask when it comes to this brand – what should one buy? Here’s a list of the top Huda Beauty products that will work for Indian skin.
Easy Bake Powder, Rs 2,955
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.
Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette, Rs 2,500
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 Nude Palette, Rs 5,375
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.
Demi Matte Cream Lipstick, Rs 1,825
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.
Over Achiever Concealer, Rs 2,520
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.
All Huda Beauty products are available on Nykaa.
