Huda has almost 24 million Instagram followers 

Huda enjoys using her own products, and starts her foundation routine with the Complexion Perfection Pre-Makeup Base, £27. "This primer is the first thing I put on my face in the morning" she explains – "It is so lightweight and nourishing!" Using the Powder Bleu Collection Complexion brush by Real Techniques in BO3, £16.50, she then applies her award-winning, sell-out base – the #Fauxfilter Foundation, £32. Speaking about her revolutionary product, Huda says: "We spent years on creating a formula that would give maximum coverage, an insanely gorgeous, weightless finish, and long-wearing matte effect."

The Dubai native enjoys lining her brows: "Benefit ka-BROW (£20) is another must-have for me - I use the kaBROW every single day!" She finished her 'face of the day' with her famous Rose Gold Palette, £56, that has received rave reviews online. Speaking about her sumptuous creation, Huda explains: "I use this on a daily basis. When we were creating it, I tried to include all of the essential colours, so I don't really need any other palettes. My two everyday shades are Henna and Sandalwood"

It's refreshing to hear that despite her fame, Huda still enjoys a beauty bargain, and turns to Vaseline Rosy Lips, £1.95, when she has dry lips: "Vaseline is an essential multi-tasking beauty product for me and I LOVE the Rosy Lips tin! It's just perfect for when you want to hydrate your lips and add a subtle hint of colour!"
