Watch out, Kim Kardashian, someone's stealing the spotlight!

Let's be honest, no one does beauty blogging (or vlogging) quite better than Huda Kattan, Dubai's sensational (if not the most famous) makeup guru that helps you to channel your inner Kardashian or Jenner, for that matter. This Middle Eastern entrepreneur and makeup enthusiast has accumulated over eight million followers via Instagram as of late, and we're pretty sure it's going to increase as the days go by. However, the 32-year-old's career wasn't always about beauty as she grew up taking finance as a major back in college. But with a little twist from fate (and the so-called destiny), Kattan is now one of the most followed beauty gurus in the world.

According to Kattan, "I switched from finance because I hated it. I worked in the financial markets for three months. There would be evenings when I would leave work and just go do makeup on my friends. But it's just very unacceptable in Middle Eastern culture to have service jobs. My parents were like, "Just do it for fun. You have this respectable job in a company". Now when you search @HudaBeauty in Instagram, you'll quickly see that she's always posting about makeup techniques especially on how to contour perfectly, some Kardashian-inspired looks and of course, her pride and joy, her beauty products.

"We started on Instagram in May of 2012. We got up to 20,000 followers pretty quick, then after that we started getting on the "popular" page, which really changed everything for us. We launched our lashes in February 2013 and then it really changed. We probably grow by 120,000 to 200,000 per week," she explains. Her makeup line, Huda Beauty, is currently focusing on eye lashes which has become a very big hit online... even launching her beauty brand across the border and landing at U.S. Sephora stores! Kattan and her sisters (who are also investors of Huda Beauty) plan to release several makeup products next year, specifically for the lips. If it's similar to Kylie Jenner's lip kit, then we don't mind at all. What's not to love between a friendly competition, right? We're already so excited to stash these future Huda Beauty goodies in our makeup arsenal!

Huda Kattan, with her growing success in the world of beauty and business, may be the new beauty queen in the industry... even surpassing that of several top beauty bloggers like Michelle Phan, Zoe Sugg and Tanya Burr. We can only imagine how her beauty prowess will influence the world, one makeup technique at a time.
