Amid all the news of flight cancellations, malls and eateries closing and events being postponed as preventive measures against COVID-19, Huda Beauty founder, Huda Kattan, has shared a heartfelt video on the Instagram page of Huda Beauty to announce financial support to 100 freelance make-up artists.
Kattan who started her career as a freelance make-up artist and later established the successful make-up brand Huda Beauty, speaks about the financially tough time everyone is going through and how challenging it is for people who literally rely on their day to day income to pay their bills.
Even though we would like to change the world it does not happen if we do not take small steps first, and doing her bit, Kattan has announced to give away $1,000 (Dhs 3,670) to 100 freelance make-up artists. She has invited everyone to tag a freelance make-up artist who they think deserve financial support and why.
Here's what she has to say. Do listen to her, and support local and small businesses around you as much as you can. Applicatuons will be closed 12.00am (Gulf Standard Time) on 25 March.
