What an exciting time! Last week we announced the winners of the 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards.
This is the most thrilling part of the job and we absolutely love being able to provide recognition to the best in the business! Read the full list of UK winners here on our website which includes reading our free beauty magazine Global Makeup Magazine which goes into more details on all of this year's beauty awards winners.
In today’s blog, we’d like to shine a light on some of the skincare winners, so you know a little more about the products as well as the people and companies behind them!
Let’s begin with EcoTan by Sonya Driver with the Super Citrus Cleanser which deservedly won gold for the Best Cleanser and silver for Hempitan for the category of Best Fake Tan! The story behind the brand Eco by Sonya is both touching and inspiring. After going through an extremely traumatic period and having her life turned upside down, Sonya then discovered her sister had to have a melanoma removed from her arm, leaving a significant scar. After discovering that tanning products which were being advertised as 99% natural were actually very misleading, Sonya decided to start her own brand. The brand now boasts a range of great products and Sonya says the Super Citrus Cleanser is her favourite as it cleanses skin beautifully in a non-harmful way. Also, the bottle is so big that she also uses it as body lotion!
Now, we’ll take a deeper look at the Gold Winner for best toner! SkinChemists Advanced Brightening Toner beat some stiff competition to walk away with the award, now let us tell you a little more about their story and you might see why they also won one of our most prestigious categories - Gold for Best Luxury Skincare brand as well as a few other wins under their belt in this year's 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards.
Richard Walker, the founder and MD of SkinChemists is clearly very proud of both the brand and its history, and it’s easy to see why. The company started eleven years ago although Richard grew up around skincare products, his father being a chemist who was passionate and clear about wanting to create products which would make the world a better place! Richard also has a very clear goal! He states that his objective for SkinChemists is to become the world’s #1 cosmeceutical brand. He is also understandably proud of their remarkable achievement of selling 1,500 units within 24 hours of their website first going live!
The Advanced Brightening Toner is a fantastic product which gives skin a healthy, even glow and radiates health. It's also great for acne care as well as maintaining skin elasticity and providing smoothing, softening and moisturising properties.
So once again, big congratulations to Skinchemists London and to EcoTan by Sonya. Both deserved Gold Winners at this year’s UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards and both with wonderful and inspiring back stories behind the brands. We honestly think that the companies that clearly have a strong passion for what they do always create the best products and it’s so interesting to read about their journeys and the reasons behind them wanting to create their own products!
Well, that’s it for now but keep your eyes peeled as we have several more In The Spotlight blogs planned over the next weeks as we look forward to learning more about the winners of this year’s UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards!
See you soon!

It's the final countdown! Entries for the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards close in 5 days, on 15th March 2021.
It has been a whopping 3 months since the awards opened on the 1st January 2021. Trying to organise so many amazing entries alongside Brexit and the Global Pandemic have made this year's awards one to remember. There have been a fair share of logistical difficulties with couriers the last few months, but not a challenge we can't handle! We have seen an astonishing number of entries, and the bell hasn't chimed yet - we still have a huge 5 more days to see the entries pour in.
There have been so many new brands back this year, after multiple years and awards of entry. We adore seeing so much brand loyalty, and we recognise and appreciate all the brands who come back year after year to our beauty awards. We also have seen a huge number of new beauty brands! As our UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards celebrates the best in new launches, it is great to see lots of start-ups showcasing their new beauty products. With categories not just in makeup, but also in skincare, hair care, body care and hygiene, we are seeing a record number of entries. There is still time to enter though, with 5 days to get your entry in.
There is nothing like a last minute entry and we look forward to seeing the final push this weekend! In fact, we are dying to see what the last minute entries are! The global pandemic has changed consumer habits, and we are seeing a bigger focus on health and wellbeing, skincare, hair care and anything which is DIY at home beauty!
As soon as the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards close, we are delighted to announce, that for its second year the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards will launch straight after! This is for greener and cleaner brands with no launch date restrictions. In fact we look forward to telling you about these green beauty awards in the upcoming blogs. Many brands want to showcase their ethical ethos and we are so proud to have an award which recognises this shift towards being more eco-conscious and responsible.
We look forward to announcing the winners in Global Makeup Magazine at the end of April.
Speak soon beauty lovers!

UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards
Hello beauty lovers,
Boy oh boy are we glad it's February. We can see the daffodils and crocuses peaking out, and it seems slowly but surely that Spring is on its way. Well, in between the snow storms, rain and I think tonight it's going to hit -7 degrees. However, I'm hopeful that there are warmer days around the corner.
Between being a working mum and organising these awards, the bad weather has truly made it more of a challenge with this bad weather. And with Spring, comes the announcement of the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards. This is our biggest local beauty awards of the year out of our regions for UK, Asia, Scandinavia and USA. The UK is a truly special market when it comes to beauty awards, as consumers look to awards to find the best of the best in the hottest new makeup and cosmetics trends.
These awards aren't just for makeup though, they cover skincare, body care, hair care and of course the brand categories which look into Vegan, the packaging and Natural brands. Over the years we have seen an array of brands enter - from huge brands like L'Occitane, Boots, FOREO, Mary Kay, Avon, Nu Skin, REN Skincare, to Liz Earle and their super famous hot cloth cleanser. (Which incidentally won gold in the 2020 Global Green Beauty Awards.)
Honestly - after the last 12 months we've had, I'm not quite sure what to expect in this year's awards. But I am predicting more hygiene entries - more shower gels, hand gels and soaps and more hand creams. With the cold weather and all the washing of hands, I think people want to use better quality products that not only look after their hands and keep them from being dry but also that clean properly. When it comes to bath and shower products, I think people will just be wanting a good luscious pamper. Lastly - for makeup and cosmetics - of course eyes are all important. As are in-home beauty treatments like face masks, tweezers and fake lashes you can apply yourself.
Entries for the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards close on 15th March. You've got to be in it to win it! So if you are a beauty brand - why not enter this years beauty awards and celebrate your amazing new beauty products. We all need a pick me up at the moment - and the consumers in the UK want to find out which products has been voted the best by a panel of experts.
Lots of love
