More than 30 years ago, Kama Maharaj founded Sacha Cosmetics with a humble ambition: to develop a line of makeup for women of different ancestries that would enhance their natural beauty. What started as a family operation in Trinidad has grown to include boutique shops that span the globe, from the luxe sidewalks of Rodeo Drive to coasts along Africa and the Caribbean. These stores carry full lines of cosmetics for the eyes, face, and lips, as well as accessories such as brushes made with fine badger hair, sable hair, and synthetic bristles. For examples of Sacha’s ability to enhance the natural beauty of the subject, one need look no further than the Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss Bahamas, or Miss Jamaica pageants, as Sacha Cosmetics was the official makeup line for each competition.
