When we watch incredible films like House of Gucci, The Suicide Squad, Coming 2 America, and Being the Ricardos, to name a few, one thing we can’t help but be in awe by, in addition to the phenomenal acting, is, of course, the superb make-up and hair done for all of the stars of the film. Hair and makeup helps create a story of its own. Without the unmatched talents of the brilliant make-up artists and hair stylists on all of these films, TV shows, and commercials, the project truly wouldn’t be the same. And now, it’s time to celebrate these makeup and hair pioneers and the great magic they bring to our screens at the 9th annual Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild (MUAHS) Awards taking place on Saturday, Feb. 19 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The MUAHS Awards honors outstanding achievements for make-up artists and hair stylists in motion pictures, television, commercials, and live theater.
The full list of nominees for the wondrous event was recently announced, but before the upcoming, big day takes place, a special event was held on Dec. 16, 2021 to honor the phenomenal Lifetime Achievement Award nominees. The event was sponsored by Shiseido Makeup, Ardell Professional, and Schwarzkopf Professional. It goes without saying that respected cosmetics company, Shiseido has become a staple for every makeup look. Make-up artists, like the ones being honored at the MUAHS Awards, beauty influencers, and make-up enthusiasts alike can’t help but swear by Shiseido’s great products.
