For Huda Kattan, it all began with a pair of faux eyelashes. Now, the beauty mogul is making a statement with the real thing
It took over four years to finesse Huda Beauty’s latest launch, a two-sided mascara that is, as you would expect, far from basic. Named Legit Lashes, the new beauty hero features a unique formula and innovative duo-wand technique that masters volume, length, and curl in one flick of the wrist.
The first side of the double-ended stick is dedicated to definition, with a brush that boasts intertwined petal bristles designed to evenly apply pigmented mascara and add volume by building layers. This is enhanced by a lightweight formula that helps to avoid stiffness and achieve a clump-free, smooth finish.
On the flip side, the next wand reveals a curved brush that grips onto each lash and creates instant length via its nine rows of bristles. The wand coats each lash with a desired furl and maximum length that mirrors the movement of natural wispy lashes.
HUDA’S HOW TO:
Start by curling your lashes with a lash curler for at least 10 seconds; then choose the end of the wand that you would like to use for your desired look and start at the root of the lashes before zig-zagging the mascara wand back and forth to build up a base before moving to the tip of the lashes. This movement from root-to-tip will help to coat each lash evenly.
Once you’ve coated your lashes, for a thickening effect and added volume, look down and coat your lashes once more. If you want to add a curl, roll the brush as you move it through your lashes.
