makeup news flash, blog for the global makeup awards and global green beauty awards, news, cosmetics news, blog
In the last few blogs I have really enjoyed getting deeper into the stories behind some of our previous winners from the last USA Global Makeup Awards and Asia Global Makeup Awards. It’s so fascinating to discover the back stories behind the companies which were judged winners on the basis of their products. I don’t think it can be a coincidence that brands who really have an amazing backstory and clear raison d’etre end up creating award-winning products. So often, I read about someone who, unable to find a suitable skin product either for themselves or a loved one, takes the step of creating their own solution and starting a business that aligns with their own personal values and ethics.
The next USA Global Makeup Awards will be held soon! Entries are now open so why not enter this amazing American Beauty Awards!

Ciao a tutti!
The 2021 USA Global Makeup Awards are open for entries!
So in the last two blogs we took a closer look at the recent winners from Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand from the ! In today’s blog I want to focus on winners from the last American Beauty Awards!
The USA 2021 Global Makeup Awards are now open, the deadline for entries is the 1st August so don’t delay if you would like to get involved! These awards are perfect for brands based in the USA and Canada. As always, we are looking for exciting new beauty, skincare, haircare and cosmetics launches. Though you don't have to be based in America to enter, we do require that the cosmetics are available to purchase in the USA or Canada.
One of last year's exciting winners in the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards was Dr. Bronner. Who won the gold beauty award of:
BEST BODY PRODUCT GOLD WINNER -
Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray
As you probably know by now, I love getting to know as much as I can about every brand’s back story and their values. Delving into their history and mission statements isn’t usually very hard but it feels like Dr Bronner designed their website especially for me. It is Wonderful and goes into great detail about the brand’s roots, what it stands for and what is aiming for! Before reading further, you must check out their website’s About section and their Six Cosmic Principles. I will paraphrase some info here but I could never do them justice so I’d really love for you to see for yourselves. Their passion is infectious! The Six Cosmic Principles are:
Work hard and Grow!
Do right by customers
Treat staff like family
Be fair to suppliers
Treat the earth like home
Fund & Fight for what’s right
Each point is elaborated on, I urge you to take a look if you still haven’t! They also have a fascinating history which dates back 150 years and five generations as well as a touching tribute to Uncle Ralph, a fantastic character and integral part of the story who would visit town’s with his guitar and drum up a crowd while promoting Dr Bronner products. The whole company philosophy is incredibly inspiring and shows the good a business can do in the community if it has the right priorities.
Their organic peppermint hand sanitiser spray itself is a delicious fast, drying alcohol spray for the hands. It is a handy pocket size and has a minty fragrance... not too dissimilar from toothpaste!
Another winner in the USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards was Kanddit beauty who took GOLD for BEST BEAUTY TOOL WINNER with their Slant tweezers. Their website is currently under renovation and we can’t wait to see the new site as soon as it is published! However, you can purchase them from Amazon and their slanted tweezers are high performing, even against the smallest hairs.
Another USA brand which performed well was No Mo-Stache who took Gold for BEST HAIR REMOVAL PRODUCT. Founded in 2015 by Gita Vasseghi after she had decided to create a product which could be used to remove hair while out and about. After creating the first ever portable hair removal kit she has appeared on USA TV network TV and No Mo-Stache products can now be found in over 10,000 worldwide locations.
Well, once again I’m running out of time and space. I hope you can tell how much I enjoyed writing this blog and I hope some of my enthusiasm has rubbed off!

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.
