She’s one of the biggest names in beauty so it should come as no surprise that Huda Kattan has been awarded a Dubai Star.
The Dubai-based make-up mogul has built her Huda Beauty empire from her adopted Emirati hometown, and has harnessed the power of her 39 million followers on Instagram to build a global brand.
She also recently topped Instagram’s 2019 Rich List without resorting to #sponcon posts, as if the aforementioned accolades weren’t enough to cement her place on the list.
Taking to Twitter to announce the news, @TheDubaiStar, the official account for the project wrote: "Congratulations to the influencer-turned-entrepreneur who built a beauty empire, Huda Kattan. You are a #DubaiStar."
