Repost @huda Welcome to Huda Beauty…. crazy but we just opened our newest office! So much sacrifice goes into starting a business, which is something that’s so hard when you are going through but becomes part of you along the way. It’s so important to always focus on your end goal, no matter how hard it gets at times! Remember why you are here, repeat it over and let it become your mantra!
By 2017, Kattan with her two cofounder sisters Alya and Mona sold a small stake in Huda Beauty in order to strategy investor TSG Consumer Partners. According to Forbes, Kattan still owns the majority worth $550 million, based mostly on our valuation of her stake in the company.
Additionally, Huda’s popularity on Instagram ranked her #1 on the “2017 Influencer Instagram Rich List”, receiving $18K for each post of sponsored content. Furthermore, she makes $7.2K – $115.2K annually from her youtube channel.
She currently resides in her incredible Dubai villa where she has carefully curated a systematic make-up station using transparent organizers, meticulously labeled cupboards, and even wigs on mannequins.
