Unfortunately for most of us, we don't quite have the gift—or steady hand—for applying flawless makeup. Our shadow looks creasy, our mascara is flakier than our last boyfriend, and our winged eyeliner is boxy and uneven.

That's why we pay others to do it, and lucky for us Winnipeg has no shortage of seriously talented MUAs capable of turning even the most dubious of faces into an Instagram-worthy pout.

Consider these MUAs next time you need to get seriously glammed up for a holiday event or party.
