Self-made beauty guru and Bazaar cover star, Huda Kattan took to Instagram this morning on her 35th birthday to open up on why the past one year has been the hardest for her. 

The birthday girl posted a 'no-makeup' selfie along with a tell-all caption about how the last year has been both hugely challenging and full of growth. Encouraging fans not to hide from their imperfections, Huda instead urges everyone to lean into them and celebrate them as much as possible.

It’s my birthday! Ok my loves, I’m going to open up bc it feels like that moment, but 34 was one of my toughest years! I learned a lot! I learned that life isn’t always perfect, and that’s absolutely ok! Don’t kid yourself and hide behind your imperfections thinking they will eventually go away, they won’t! Embracing them doesn’t mean defeat, it means the opportunity to grow beyond them! I’ve learned that being unapologetically yourself (even if you are constantly growing) truly allows you to be the best version of yourself that can inspire others and while you may try to please people, you will never succeed until you start with numero uno! I also learned that giving to yourself is crucial! Filling your cup first everyday means that you can give more to the world, so don’t feel bad about it! More than anything, I’ve learned to live in the moment, something I never did before, because truly it’s the moments that make memories & write your history Also HBD Ghandi!!

The beauty mogul also addresses why self-care is so important and that you need to nurture yourself in order to be your most efficient and inspiring self. "Filling your cup first everyday means that you can give more to the world, so don’t feel bad about it," she says.

This is hardly the first time the beauty mogul has shared her life lessons to live by. Huda started a motivational #HudaThought video series on Facebook where she shares her thoughts about healthy self-esteem and authenticity.
