What started off as a hobby - Huda worked in finance - soon became a business. She now works with her older sister Ayla and Mona, and they now employ 22 people.

Writing about the beauty expert, they said: "One her favourite beauty brands is Too Faced, she also is partial to products by Guerlain and the cruelty-free cosmetic brand, Tarte. She spends hours on the Net keeping up to date with beauty trends, takes 45 minutes to do her own face a day, and still finds time to be a mother to her daughter Nour (at four, Nour already knows how to do a perfect cupid's bow - a professional make up technique that pouts up your lips)."
