Huda Beauty lovers rejoice – this world-renowned makeup brand is finally available for purchase locally in South Africa, thanks to beauty pioneer ARC Store.
Huda Beauty is a worldwide makeup sensation, having earned its star status through an amazing collection of products and its transparent and inclusive approach to beauty. Launched by award-winning beauty blogger Huda Kattan in 2013, Huda Beauty is one of the world’s fastest-growing beauty brands. The brand started as a blog, but Huda quickly grew her Youtube and social media following, and today the Huda Beauty Instagram account boasts an incredible 49 million followers!
In 2013, Huda joined forces with her sisters to create and launch a collection of false eyelashes under the Huda Beauty brand, which, before long, became available at Sephora in Dubai Mall. Today, the range is massive, including every makeup product under the sun, as well as KAYALI fragrance brand and Wishful Skin.
After what felt like the longest wait, South Africans can now get their hands on the complete Huda Beauty makeup range, KAYALI fragrance brand and Wishful Skin via ARC Store’s website, at the ARC Sandton Store in Johannesburg, or at the V&A Waterfront coming soon to Cape Town.
“We are proud and beyond excited to make Huda Beauty and its ancillary brands available to the South African beauty community. Huda Beauty represents the future of beauty – effective beauty products that deliver on its promise and invites its users to embrace and celebrate their unique beauty,” says Kelly Fung, Marketing Executive at ARC.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, ARC Store is home to some of the most sought-after local and international beauty brands, and despite only launching a couple of months ago, has already proven to be at the forefront of beauty innovation.
Celebrating diversity and individuality (much like Huda Beauty themselves) there was no better match than ARC Store, and the marriage of these two brands is a match made in heaven.

Pity that the online customer service from the ARC store is so atrocious. Numerous people in cape town have had issues, and the customer service appears non existent.
Hi Alison, we’d love to put you in contact with someone who can assist – could you share some more details? (BSA editor)
