The work of a makeup artist emanates from their hands to the faces of their clients, Sarah’s work transfers from her talented fingers, not only to her clients faces, but to their smiles. From San Juan, Sarah Benjamin- Paul resides there along with her business.
Her works include everything from bridal to carnival to everyday functional, including her specialty airbrush makeup. Being in the industry for almost seven (7) years her passion arose from seeing the boost in women’s self esteem when having their makeup done, Sarah’s experience and training started with Sacha Cosmetics and included training with the famous Mario Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist).

Get to know Sarah Benjamin- Paul
When doing regular makeup, I love using Urban Decay makeup products. For airbrush makeup, TEMPTU (New York) products are AMAZING!
What are some of your must have products?
I love the MAC Studio Fix Powders, Anastasia Dip Brow, Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion and MAC Pro Longwear Concealers.
What tips do you have for the everyday woman when it comes to applying makeup?
Always take time to blend, if it’s eyeshadow, foundation or concealer, proper blending makes the look more professional and distributes the product more evenly.
What has been your most memorable experience so far as a MUA? Have you had any Memorable clients?
My most memorable experience as a makeup artist was meeting Mario Dedivanovic and learning from him in NYC in 2013. He’s been my inspiration from the start..
I always remember my first bride, the nervousness was extremely nerve wrecking but all went well!
What plans do you have for the future?
With the grace of God, hopefully flying out to NYC again in December to complete an airbrush workshop with TEMPTU to specialize a bit more in that field.
What is your trademark/ specialty?
I am widely known for doing airbrushed bridal makeup applications.
How would you define your makeup style?It’s always upgrading for the better, I like keeping in tune with new techniques and trends as they come along within the seasons.
Do you prefer Neutrals or Bold Colours?
For me, neutrals tend to go with any look, and it keeps a classy, clean finish with your makeup. I like the red carpet celebrities as inspiration 🙂 What would you like to see improve/happen for MUA’s in Trinidad & Tobago?I would love if Trinidad and Tobago can develop a wider range of international brands, similar to a Sephora. That would be awesome!
Who’s your Favourite MUA/ Makeup Youtuber?
My favorite MUA would definitely be Mario Dedivanovic. On YouTube, I love watching Manny MUA. He’s hilarious and his techniques are beautiful.
