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"
