Hello you beauties,
This December brings the last month of the whirlwind that has been 2020, and we are choosing to go out with a bang by announcing tomorrow our last beauty awards for the year: The 2020 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards.
In this beauty magazine, you can read all the winners for 2020. It is so much fun doing our makeup and beauty awards region by region. In this year's Scandinavia region, we see the hottest brands from the brassicaly cold Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland.
The Nordics opt for a cleaner, and more eco friendly type of beauty - with product packaging often being recyclable, and the products itself often organic, non toxic and also usually non harmful to the environment. The products themselves are usually of extremely high quality and they tend to prefer a more minimalistic approach to beauty. Less is more, and the Scandinavians tend to prefer less bottles over more. Packaging, like the number of beauty products in their cabinet, is scaled black. There is more monochrome, more simplicity and yet more style.
There was a myriad of entries in this years 2020 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards and we had so many notable winners. For Hair and Body brands such as Rosenserien, to Sweden Eco, Eleni & Chris and Zenz Organic to makeup brands such as IDUN Minerals and Karmameju's beautiful new BB suncreams. We were excited to welcome this year SkinChemists, Dr Botanicals and Esse to the skincare categories along side past winners such as Barr Sweden and FOREO (who have launched their incredible beauty gadgets BEAR and UFO2.
Other notable winners are Icelandic luxury skincare brand Taramar - which uses algae at the forefront of their science. Primex Iceland - which uses Chitosan as its unique ingredient (sustainable prawn shells from the Atlantic Ocean). Marina Miracle showcased their incredible range, from their lash and eyebrow serum which was a winner in previous awards as well as showcasing their skincare range - we loved their sweet and creamy oil cleanser. Aiia was also a strong winner in this years awards with its high end skincare founded upon water based serums.
Winners in our beauty awards receive an entry on our website, an image and text in our online magazine and a certificate. Brands can even choose to further promote their win with a perspex trophy. The 2021 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards will return September 15th 2021. With over 300 entrants it's impossible to name them all in one post, but we hope you enjoy reading our favourites in Global Makeup Magazine.
Who knows what next year will have in store for us and the world. We were so impressed with all the brands ability to go with the flow all with the backdrop of a global pandemic which impacted staff working from home, warehouse organisation and postage logistics. In the face of such uncertainty, we know next year will be bigger and brighter as we saw such an impressive range of products entered. Products that can provide that much needed pick-me-up for those who have had to close themselves up at home with lockdown after lockdown enforced.
To all our readers - Thank You! We are so happy so many of you tune into Global Makeup Magazine, and we wish you the happiest of Christmas Holidays and New Years. The Global Makeup Awards commences again from January 1st, launching with our biggest region for the Global Makeup Awards and then followed shortly after by Global Green Beauty Awards - which celebrates all green beauty and eco beauty award winners.
Wishing you a safe December

Don’t let’s be coy. Our V area needs as much love and attention as our faces. Being a delicate area, often with sensitive skin, it is important to use products specially designed for 'down there'! And our team are loving THE PERFECT V product range which also happens to have been a winner in the 2019 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards.
Anyone who’s experienced an in-growing hair after shaving or a reaction to a soap or shower gel requiring a visit to the chemist will appreciate the use of a product dedicated for the vaginal area.
The ethos of this brand is to give women confidence and provide a positive image of themselves. Certainly being confident with your freshness at all times in this area is one less worry whatever age you are.
The ingredients are sourced from the Nordic home of this product featuring Arctic Cloudberry which has incredibly high levels of Vitamin C helping to enhance and brighten skin appearance. It also contains Omega -6 and -3 to promote healthy looking skin and vitamin A to rejuvenate the skin cells Bilberry extract is the skin conditioning agent containing anti ageing resveratrol and quercetin along with vitamins B C and E whilst it’s fruit has anti oxidant Properties.
The light fresh scent of elderflower also provides protection against free radical damage, lingonberries, the famous scandi super fruit, and sea buckthorn all contribute to the natural and soothing effect of the VV range. The judges loved the presentation of Vanicure essentials. Small enough to put in your hand luggage (30cc each item) the box contains one each of the VV Gentle Wash, the VV Gentle Exfoliator and V V Cream providing every step of your routine to moisturise and condition your skin. RRP $39.00.
Complement these with The perfect V Serum Very V which really calms irritated skin. The product may be for an area mostly kept under wrap but the packaging is so discreet no one will guess where it’s going to be applied. We all loved it !
Good afternoon from London where spring is trying its best to nudge its way out in front of winter
but not very successfully (so far)!
Today I want to shine a spotlight on some of our previous winners.
SKOGEN had a great year last year, winning two gold awards and one silver for their Jasmine
Collection moisturiser and eye-cream products.
“Skogen” means “forest” in Swedish and I think this name perfectly captures the company’s ethos
which is to use all-natural ingredients and work in an environmentally friendly way while creating
top-quality beauty products. SKOGEN is based in New York and Sweden and has placed itself at the
forefront of high-end beauty product brands.
They are also featured in this month’s British edition of VOGUE magazine see online version here -

FOREO were worthy winners of our Best Beauty Electrical Device Gold Award for their LUNA 3
Despite the fact that six years ago the company consisted of just two employees, Foreo has
experienced amazing growth and success and now employs over 3000 people across the globe. The
company was founded in Sweden and takes great pride in hiring staff from a range of backgrounds,
which complements the company’s innovative approach and unconventional yet ground-breaking
way of pushing forward technological solutions.
BEST BEAUTY ELECTRICAL DEVICE GOLD WINNER
The final company which we want to highlight today is Dr Lipp, producers of 100% (not 99%) natural
products. Founded by the infuriatingly multi-talented and stunningly beautiful Pontine, while she
was working in Milan. Now based in both West London and a sweet Verbier chalet, Pontine searched
high and low for a lip balm which would meet her needs until she stumbled upon nipple balm as the
perfect way to keep her skin in prime condition.

BEST LIP BALM GOLD WINNER - Dr. Lipp

and we love working with and using the best beauty products on the mark-up. It’s really a privilege
for us to work with industry leaders and to share information about them with you. Stay tuned for
more In the Spotlight articles coming soon! And remember that our UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards will be announced on 1st April 2020.
