Are you ready for an incredible 2022 beauty awards?
It's Dominique here - I know you are all looking forward to Danny's blogs but this is just a quick shout out about dates for 2022 and then it will be back to Danny's beauty awards blogs again!
It's been another long and crazy year, and I think we're all feeling that this is how it's going to be for the foreseeable.... but I wanted to reach out to all our brands and readers and say thank you for what has been another incredible year. 2021 saw our biggest beauty awards year yet, with a massive 5 beauty awards completed. We saw the Global Makeup Awards for the UK, Asia, USA and now we are just closing up Scandinavia which will be announced on 20th December. We also saw in the Summer our biggest awards: The Global Green Beauty Awards. We have seen so much determination from all brands, big and small, to create, innovate and bring a smile to people's faces with new and incredible beauty launches.
This also meant that we had an incredible 5 magazines launched in 2021 in our Global Makeup Magazine. It has been great seeing this magazine take off this last year, and promote brands in a bigger, more visual and shareable way. We hope the content has provided useful to all our beauty brands - and that all our beauty readers have loved finding more information on our favourite Gold, Silver and Bronze Winners. We can't wait for the magazine to continue next year.
Next year, we will be squeezing our regional Global Makeup Awards together for Asia, UK and USA and they will all open on 6th January 2022. (The Scandi region will continue to be held at the end of the year).
This year has been a bit different again for everyone, but I really truly hope and wish everyone an incredible Christmas this year and a strong, fit, healthy, happy and prosperous 2022. Please do also pop us a follow on instagram to keep up to date with all our awards dates throughout the year, and see some mentions of some of our favourite beauty brands.
Hugs and love
Wow. It's been an exhilarating start to the year with our UK Beauty Awards. As part of a Global beauty awards group, we work through the year providing the following 5 awards:
UK Global Makeup Awards (our local beauty awards for new trends.)
ASIA Global Makeup Awards (perfect for the Asian beauty award market, and also includes New Zealand and Australia beauty awards.)
USA Global Makeup Awards (for the American Beauty Award market - a very interesting concept as USA Beauty Awards is not such a recognised concept compared to the other geographical markets - especially the UK where Beauty Awards are huge!)
Scandinavia Global Makeup Awards
and last but not least, the Global Green Beauty Awards (our biggest green and clean beauty awards which opens from mid March.)
The 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards is drawing to a close with entries closing in two weeks, on 15th March 2021. Immediately after, the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards open. It has been exhilarating for the UK market, as after the success of last year, which was our biggest year to date, who knew what the future would hold for 2021 which sees the UK reeling from the effects of its biggest recesion to date due to the coronavirus outbreak. The beauty industry was particularly hard hit, as the high street was closed, and with many people who had lost their jobs, there was less to spend on high end beauty items. On the other hand, self-care has never been so important - and home hair kits and home spa products have seen a rise.
Our beauty predictions for 2021 from what we've seen so far is a leap towards more affordable and more eco beauty goods that you can use at home. Unfortunately, we've also seen a lot of famous beauty houses collapse. Victoria Beckham Beauty has closed its London store. Other colour cosmetics brands have taken a hit, as with social venues and work places being closed people just don't need it. Overwhelmingly, we have seen an increased demand for skincare haircare, wellness and of course sanitization. We have seen many beauty brands bring out hand sanitisers and hand creams and soaps in a reaction against the COVID19 pandemic. In fact at the start of the pandemic, you couldn't find hand soap or hand sanitiser for love nor money in any supermarket or pharmacy. OUr UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards responded to this with the following new categories:
Best New Health and Wellness Product
Best New Hand Cream
Best Soap Bar
Best Liquid Soap
Best Hand Sanitiser
After a year of meticulously washing and scrubbing our hands - we are all desperate for new finds in these categories which look after our hands and care for them.
All of your beauty predictions with be proven (or otherwise!) in our winners list in April's Global Makeup Magazine. There are still two weeks left to enter our UK beauty awards, and if you have an ASIAN beauty brand you can enter our Asia beauty Awards the 2021 ASIA Global Makeup Awards until April.

Our beautiful UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards trophies have arrived!
Good (early) morning everyone!
It's Dominique here from the Global Makeup Awards. Today I'm up too early....3.45am because the sun is just rising, it's one day after the summer solstice. That's not a regular habit of mine... more just being someone who once sees the sun is up, I can never get back to sleep again, anyone else like that?
A little quick update with where we are with the awards. We currently have TWO awards open. We have both the 2020 Global Green Beauty Awards open (a green beauty awards alternative) and the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards open. (This is like the other Global Makeup Awards you know and love, but this time we've branched out into the fabulous American market, where the is so much beauty innovation and expertise. We are so excited to be launching in the USA and for our USA beauty awards to be taking on a whole other shape and dimension. Entries for the Global Green Beauty Award end July 15th, and for the USA Global Makeup Awards the entries close August 1st. We don't normally have two awards running at the same time, but as you all know coronavirus has wreaked havoc on schedules and timings so we have had to have had a little reshuffle!
In other beauty related news, we have had delivery of our 2020 UK Global Makeup Awards trophies. They are so beautiful. We love our innovatively designed A6 perspex block beauty award trophies. They look so cute on a desk to celebrate a win or placed on a shelf.
If you have just entered our Global Green Beauty Awards or the USA Global Makeup Awards and would like to order one like in the picture, just let us know. Why not try and collect one for each global region that we run our awards in, or one each year? They cost £150 for one trophy celebrating one win, but be sure to let us know soon as you win as we have a short order window.
What do you receive when you win in our awards?
We really do try to add value in our awards. Every winner in our beauty awards receives for free and entry in our Global Makeup Magazine, and for the moment that includes an image too. You also receive a paper certificate posted to your door and of course our iconic awards logo and a mention with back link on our website. But, if that's not enough for you and you would like something physical on your desk, then an additional perspex trophy is exactly what you are looking for.
We also announce the winners in Diary Directory. Have you signed up to it yet? It is such an amazing beauty tool to find out what is going on in the beauty events calendar, and their daily email is really interesting. You'll also never miss out on our awards dates this way either!
Will you ever run a gala?
A gala for our beauty awards is something we are so keen to do. What better event is there for networking, socialising, having a good knees up and of course for finding out the winners to the beauty awards with a celebration gala. However, for the moment with the coronavirus pandemic we need to keep things safe. As soon as things return to pre-apocalypse (kidding! but you know what I mean) then it is definitely something we will put on the table.
The sun is really coming up now and it's already time for another coffee. If you have received your UK Global Makeup Awards trophy please do send me a picture of it so I can feature on the website and social media. Our next UK awards isn't until January 2021 so let's keep the ball rolling and news about the 2020 awards hot hot hot!
Peace and love
UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards announced - winners list in our Global Makeup Magazine
Hi everyone. Dan here, firstly with a little update on life here in Italy and then with a quick spotlight
on one of the victors after the recent announcement of the winners at the 2020 UK Global Makeup
So, since we last met, lockdown measures have gradually eased here in the region of Lombardy.
Lombardy is in the north of the country; it borders Switzerland and its two largest cities are Milan
and Brescia. The word Lombardy is originally formed from Long and Beard, that’s pretty cool. I’m
down in the Brescia region, among the stunning mountains at the popular holiday destination Lake
Over the past week, shops and restaurants have gradually reopened, and once again there are
people on the streets and visiting cafes. On Friday afternoon I had an appointment in the beautiful
lakeside town of Salo, and there was a wonderful energy and atmosphere as friends re-connected
with each other after nearly 3 months of isolation. Everyone seemed to respect social distancing and
the police were helping restaurateurs to arrange their tables according to new regulations
Personally, I’ve particularly enjoyed getting my paddleboard back out on the lake. The scenery here
is beautiful but I don’t think any view of the area beats the view from when you are actually in or on
In addition to getting out on the lake, our international team has been busy announcing the UK
winners of the 2020 Global Makeup Awards. There were over 350 entries to our beauty awards and
over the next few blogs, we’re excited to share more information and background on some of the
winners. You can read our debuted new magazine "Global Makeup Magazine" showing the winner's showcase for the 2020 Global Makeup Awards here.
Let’s start with the BEST CLEANSER GOLD WINNER. Beuti skincare prevailed in a competitive market
to take home the gold award for their Pomegranate glow 3 in 1 enzyme cleanser & Phytoessence
Biocosmetics Face Cleansing Oil, launched in 2015 by former aesthetician LEILA AALAM with the
mission of providing high quality yet affordable beauty products free from unnecessary chemicals.
Beuti products were an immediate hit and Kate Middleton even took care to include their products
while packing her hospital bag as she prepared to give birth to little Louis -read the blog here:
The Pomegranate glow 3 in 1 enzyme cleanser is a fantastic product which in addition to being an
excellent cleanser, also functions as a facemask when left applied for 5-10 minutes. The fermented
Pomegranate acts like a gentle glycolic acid which exfoliates and cleanses skin while rose clay while
Copaiba Balsam soothes and protects against inflammation.
Beuti were hugely deserving winners in this category of beauty awards despite facing a lot of
competition from other high-quality brands. Do check out their website where you can order online
and access a list of stockists throughout the UK, USA and Europe - https://beutiskincare.com/shop/
That’s all for now but please stay tuned for more spotlights on worthy winners from our most recent
awards over the coming days and weeks. We love sharing more information with you about our
winners and their stories!
