USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards launch June 1st 2020
We are ecstatic to announce the launch of the USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards. We had over 350 entrants for the UK awards, and we are sure we are going to beat this record with the USA.
The USA is the global leader in beauty and cosmetics which means we can't wait to see their hottest launches for 2020. We were so excited to go to the North America, Las Vegas COSMOPROF beauty event this year, which has been postponed. It typically attracts over 40,000 guests which is quite incredible. They are hoping their June dates will now be in September but due to the coronavirus outbreak this might be postponed again. Let's wait and see!
Regardless of Las Vegas Cosmoprof, we will be going ahead with the USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards. We have some key dates for your calender so be sure to put down the following for our beauty awards:
USA 2020 GLOBAL MAKEUP AWARDS.
June 1st 2020 - Awards open for entries
August 1st 2020 - Awards entries close
August 10th 2020 - Last submission of product samples
September 10th 2020 - Winners Announced Online
To enter the awards we are looking only for the newest and freshest beauty products - so we are looking for products launched after January 2018 only. We require 6 x product samples which will be judged by our panel of judges. Please note that for shipping from the USA to the UK you will need to fill our the appropriate customs label! We have categories for makeup, skincare, body care, haircare innovation and more, so have a look at our USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards product categories list which is available to view now. The product entry page will be open from June 1st when the awards go live for entries.
From big to Indy brands, we have seen that everyone is in for a chance to win with our beauty awards. Winners will receive a paper certificate and an online winners badge for their gold, silver or bronze wins in the awards. Online they will also get a back link direct to their website and gold winners will also have a free image on our website to enhance their win.
If, however, green and clean is more your thing, then why not look into our Global Green Beauty Awards. This is open to brands globally and there are no launch date restrictions. There are categories for brands and beauty products which are green, organic, natural, ethical, zero waste, cruelty free or made from key natural ingredients. Entries for the Global Green Awards are open now until July 15th.
Best wishes to you all during these strange days. We would like to remind everyone and reassure you that the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards is going ahead and will still be announced on 10th May.
Today’s blog is from our Global Makeup Awards team member Dan who is based in the lake garda region of Italy, currently in lockdown due to the virus.
Hi folks, here’s an update from a Londoner who’s been living in sunny Italy for the last four years. At
the moment, here in the Brescia region we are all in lockdown and can only leave our houses for
certain reasons, such as food shopping (only from the nearest supermarket), or medical
emergencies. We need to fill out a form for each trip out of the house and police can fine or even
imprison anyone who gives false information or moves around outside of their town without a valid
reason. However, the latest news is that if everyone respects the order to stay at home #IoStoAcasa,
hopefully that will make a big difference to the current infection rates. Apparently, the arrival of the
hot Italian summer will hopefully also help kill off the virus. Of course, there isn’t much known about
this virus at this stage and its possible that some news stories and internet rumour aren’t as accurate
as we’d like but the reassuring message being displayed from many different buildings is “andra
tutto bene” – everything’s gonna be all right”. I’m sure it will be but do hope we can get back to
“normality” as soon as possible.
Today I’ve been wondering, - how has coronavirus impacted the beauty industry? Of course, there
are more important things to concern ourselves with, yet as I speak from the hardest hit area of
Europe, I also know how important it is to also distract ourselves from worry about COVID-19 and to
think about things that make us happy and feel good. For many of us, that includes our favourite
beauty products. That being said, obviously the current situation has had repercussions on planned
events, beauty awards and makeup awards over the coming months.
Here at Global Makeup Awards we have cancelled our Asia 2020 Awards Launch because of
coronavirus and the difficulty that will ensue for brands who are closed (logistics etc.) You will see it
launch next year or if this happens to blow over quicker than we think, you might even see the awards for ASIA at the end of 2020. For now, the main priority is to stay fit and healthy and to help other who need our help.
BEAUTY NEWS AS A RESULT OF CORONAVIRUS
Other news in beauty is that the large beauty trade fair - Cosmoprof in Bologna - has been
postponed to June 11-14th.
Also, the Natural and Organic Trade Show 2020 in the UK also has been postponed –
(https://www.naturalproducts.co.uk/) and will now be held on 7-8 July.
Here, we are working from home and plaaning something exciting for a ‘Green Beauty Awards’, stay
tuned for more information!
Anyway, that’s enough for today. I just thought I’d share an update with you from a Londoner in Italy
and wish you all the best during these difficult times. The sense of optimism and community here is
so strong; when we work together, we can overcome any challenge we face!
Ciao a tutti!
