People Are Just Realising What ‘MUA’ Stands For And It’s Hilarious

SPOILER ALERT: It's not Manny's surname.
Have you ever wondered why so many of those beauty personalities you see on Twitter and Instagram have the word 'MUA' after their name? Like the gorgey Manny MUA for example. Is it some kind of exotic middle name? Some kind of secret cult or club? Special initials for the most glamorous people on social media?
You wouldn't be alone in not having a clue what those three little letters stand for. In fact, a couple of PopBuzzers had the same problem a few weeks ago and their minds were blown when they realised what it really meant. Bless.
So what the heck does the MUA actually mean? SPOILER: it's pretty freakin' obvious once you realise. Are you ready for this truth bomb?
