More evidence that the Dubai businesswoman is taking over the beauty world, one follower at a time…

Whenever we need a bit of help with nailing the perfect winged liner technique, Huda Kattan’s Instagram account is the first place we look.

It seems we’re not the only ones – according to Instagram, the image-sharing platform has just reached a whopping 63 million users in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Who is the most-followed of them all? None other than the Dubai-based beauty guru, of course.
