But in the long run, you come to think, well maybe these things were actually good for you, and you just didn’t see it like that at the time.” Huda Kattan

27. “After I graduated, I started a blog, and eventually my sister Mona, who is such a visionary, said I should do a product.” Huda Kattan

28. “I felt really insecure about starting products, but I’d been hacking together my own lashes by cutting and curling and gluing other ones together. And Mona was like, “Why don’t you take these lashes that you keep crafting and manufacture them?” I knew exactly what I wanted, down to the packaging, which I did with a graphic designer from a selfie I took of my own eyes.
