In the spotlight - favourite beauty winners from the 2021 USA Global Makeup Awards
Award winning American Beauty brands from the American Beauty Awards
Hi again everybody.
Dan here! We are absolutely delighted to announce the winners from the USA 2021 Global Makeup Awards. To see the full list of winners please check our magazine or visit our website here.
In the meantime, I would like to share a little more from behind the scenes of some of the winners.
First of all we have Pickle’s Potions who were the BEST CLEANSER GOLD WINNER
with their Strawberry smoothie cleansing balm as well as BEST EYE CREAM GOLD WINNER for their Raspberry Eye Gel. They also took SILVER for their Chai tinted lip butter in the BEST LIP PRODUCT category.
Devoted to #CleanBeauty this company pledges to only use 100% natural ingredients and avoids chemicals, artificial fragrances and colours, and of of course says no to animal testing. Before starting the Pickle’s Potions, their founder Kristin Mutchler was a self-confessed “skincare junkie” and amassed a wide range of different products for different situations. One day, while assessing the ingredients of the products which she had bought she realised that she did not know much about all the different chemicals and ingredients which she was using on herself! Her baby daughter also suffered from skin problems and needed skincare products to help, a doctor once prescribed a cream which included steroids, something that Kristin really didn't want to use on her baby’s skin!
So, she was inspired to set up Pickle’s Potions, where the products are clean, natural and safe for babies (and adults). I love Kristin’s story behind her products (it's clear how much the brand means to her), so please check out some of her wonderful products!
Another super brand which was recognised at the USA 2021 Global Makeup Awards was Organic Works. They were BEST NIGHT CREAM GOLD WINNER - for their Renewal Night Cream and were also voted BEST VEGAN BEAUTY BRAND GOLD WINNER.
While it’s great that there so many new companies championing #CleanBeauty, Organic Works are old hands, having been founded 50 years ago. They describe themselves as a clean, green, vegan, cruelty free, brand and don’t believe that natural beauty should be at the sacrifice of standards, quality or results! They also understand the strong correlation between Clean Beauty and Green Beauty, demonstrating a sound understanding of their customers and a commitment to listening to them. It is not surprising then that they have recently adopted business practices which ensure that ingredients are traceable, sustainably sourced and that packaging is minimised and recyclable
Finally, let’s take a quick look at BEST MASCARA GOLD WINNER, which was Dome Beauty with their Magnetic Mascara.
Founder, Mar Callone grew up in a diverse family environment and incorporates a 360° beauty concept into the company, a story which started with a commitment to clean living, natural ingredients and a love for animals and our environment. As a consequence, DOME BEAUTY products are made with clean ingredients and we can be confident that all packaging is recyclable and carefully chosen.
So, there we have some great brands whose fantastic work was recognised at the recent USA Beauty Awards.
In the next blogs we’ll look at the upcoming Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards which are now open!
Until then, ciao for now!
Jane Iredale, Carter Beauty, Eylure and Erborian - some gold winners from our beauty awards
Taking a look at some gold winners from the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards
Hi again everybody!
So in our last In The Spotlight blog we shared some background information about some of the Gold Winners in the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards Skincare categories. Today, we’d like to focus on some of the winners from the Make-Up categories. This beauty awards was truly competitive so it was great to see such a range of amazing high street and non high street beauty and makeup brands.
Let’s begin with Erborian who came out top in the category of Best Primer with their Pink Primer & Care. This awesome primer has the very convenient added bonus of also being an excellent moisturiser. This toner works amazingly with all different skin tones, (see this YouTube video); the main ingredients of the Pink Primer & Care are Japanese persimmon leaf extract (Diospyros kaki), Japanese Camellia seed oil (Camellia japonica), and Pumpkin seed oil (Curcubita pepo); all known for their antioxidant properties.
Founded in 2007, the Erborian Skin Care Therapy Franco-Korean brand blends the latest technologies with traditional Korean medicines with the goal of helping people to achieve perfect skin.
Let’s now take a look at Fluttery Light No.008 which was the BEST EYE PRODUCT GOLD WINNER for Eylure London. These beautifully hand-made lashes can be used up to five times and enhance lashes to give them a thicker and longer look.
Eylure was established in 1948 although by this point their lashes had already become firm favourites with such icons as Marlene Dietrich, Joan Collins, Ingrid Berman and Sophia Loren. This was due to the fact that the company’s founders were renowned make-up artists in the movie industry. They were also used to give Elizabeth Taylor her famous Cleopatra look. By the 1960’s, their lashes had become extremely popular with the general public
Next, we’ll look at our BEST FOUNDATION GOLD WINNER - Carter Beauty Miracle with their Measure Youth Boost Foundation. A wonderfully clean product, this foundation is fragrance-free and oil-free as well as being vegan friendly and PETA approved. It is enriched with vitamins C and E and also HYALURONIC ACID (HA), a naturally occuring substance in skin which helps to keep it hydrated.
Carter Beauty by Marissa Carter takes great pride and care in being Peta-approved while Marissa is adamant that her products must be of the highest quality yet always affordable. Furthermore, Marissa really knows her stuff and her blog is a really fantastic resource for us all! She shares a lot of really valuable expertise, its hard to believe that her beauty guides are even free! She could probably make a lot of money if she charged for them! Her Foundation 101 guide
Finally, our BEST CONCEALER GOLD WINNER was for Jane Iredale with the Enlighten Plus Under-Eye Concealer. This 100% cruelty free and vegan-friendly concealer is especially great for providing protection from the sun while also smoothing and depuffing the eyes. Jane started the brand over 25 years ago, long before anyone was talking about ‘Clean Beauty’. Her own values fit perfectly with that description though and after working with actors and finding that many make-up products were damaging to their skin, she set about creating makeup that is actually kind to the skin.
Well, there are four great brands to check out. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading as much as we have writing this blog. We’ll be back soon with another In The Spotlight of the best products from our beauty awards.
Until then, ciao!!!
