She told Elle South Africa: “I can spend a minimum of $4,000 (£3,000) a month on makeup.

“People get surprised because they’re like, ‘why do you still buy products?’ There are so many indie brands like Dose of Color, Morphe and Lime Crime that I like to buy, or I’m impulsively shopping on Sephora or Net-A-Porter.

“I do spend a lot on beauty products.”

Huda then recalled a recent trip to LA, where she found herself returning with thee suitcases filled with make-up alone.

She said: “I’ll head to Macy’s and get products from Lorac and Oribe and R & Co.

“We still don’t have everything [in Dubai] when it comes to beauty.

“I’ll pop into Sally Beauty Supply and buy small little pro items like hair ties, hair clips and curling irons, loads of brushes, and things that I need consistently.

“I left LA with three luggages and I came back with fifteen or sixteen.

The site claimed that amongst the ins and outs of her grooming Reggie were “several manis and pedis each week ($150 a session).”

With so much Instagramming going on, it’s no surprise her nails get worn out – but £111 a manicure seems a bit steep.

Huda and her brand have a huge following on Instagram, with 21.6 million followers regularly checking out her incredible make-up tutorials and reposted makeovers from artists around the world.

One of her fans is Kim K herself, who was one of her first customers when she launched her fake eyelashes in 2013.

Kim still uses the brand to give her the OTT red carpet eyes she’s best known for, and has become friends with Huda, who even gave her new KKW Beauty range a glowing endorsement.

The two cosmetics-lovers were seen enjoying lunch in Los Angeles – and it was quite hard to tell them apart.
