Huda Kattan expands beauty empire with new skincare line

  • The beauty guru announced she will soon release products from her new skincare line

DUBAI: Iraqi-US makeup entrepreneur Huda Kattan is about to drop her latest launch, Huda Beauty Skin.

The beauty guru announced the news Sunday on her Instagram accounts. 

Kattan has always been open about her skin imperfections. “I’ve said it before, but my skin has been a JOURNEY,” she wrote in the post. 

Despite her extensive knowledge of makeup, Kattan was never satisfied with her skin, she said. “As a kid I had really dry-sensitive skin, that was super rough and uneven in tone and texture, and at 19 I started dealing with cystic adult acne,” she wrote.

There were days when Kattan says she felt insecure about her skin, adding that she could not leave her house because her acne was “painful and bad.”

According to the mogul, her skin improvement was all thanks to “blogging and experimenting.”

“What happened was truly unexpected! My skin became so soft, even smooth, my pores disappeared, and my acne was (finally) under control,” she said.

On her new Huda Beauty Skin page, Kattan shared before and after clips of herself a little over a year ago and now. “I can't believe it! Before with makeup and less confidence, After, with our new skincare line, absolutely no makeup, but so much confidence!” she wrote in the post. 

“Both of these are during basic breakouts (nothing severe), but my skin texture is sooooo different!! Even my neck looks better! (sic)” she added. 

Kattan is ranked in the top 40 of Forbes’ 2019 list of the wealthiest self-made female entrepreneurs in the US, with a reported net worth of $610 million. She has a makeup line, a fragrance line and now a skincare line.


California says film, TV production can resume this month

California says film, TV production can resume this month

LOS ANGELES: California will allow film, television and music production to resume from June 12 if conditions permit after months of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the governor's office said Friday.


Film and television productions in the Golden State have been shuttered since mid-March.


The reopening will be subject to approval by local health officers, the California Public Health Office said.


"To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers," it said.


However it is not clear if major Hollywood studios will be able to resume operations from next week because Los Angeles county is one of the main coronavirus epicenters in California, recording about half the infections and deaths in the state.


To date, more than 125,000 cases and 4,500 deaths have been confirmed in California.
