The 8th Annual Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards, or MUAHS Awards for short, recently released the nominations for their upcoming ceremony which is due to be presented on 3rd April.
The MUAHS Guild is the American union that represents make-up artists and stylists in the film and TV industry. Its annual awards celebrate its member and their outstanding achievements throughout the year covering motion pictures, television, commercials and live theatre.
