Happy Autumn! It's been a while
The 2022 Scandinavia Global Makeup Awards have opened for entries!
So sorry it's been a while. It's Dominique the Editor of the Global Makeup Awards here. Don't worry - Danny will soon be back to giving you his reviews of some of the amazing entries we had in the 2022 Global Green Beauty Awards.
I just wanted to pop on here for our followers to wish you a happy Autumn. After a month off (after a very busy year with the Global Green Beauty Awards and our Global Makeup Awards for the Uk, ASIA and USA, I'm delighted to be back at the computer to bring to you our last awards of the year - our 2022 Scandinavia Global Makeup Awards.
The 2022 Scandinavia Awards are held in Autumn / Winter for our Scandi friends, as they symbolise all things Hygge - crunchy leaves, the wild, fresh air, pure and natural ingredients, cozy firesides. The awards for this region are now in their fourth year and it's been so great growing over the years and watching to see how the Scandi brands have been changing and adapting and also their response with COVID in 2020 and 2021. Self care and looking after ones inner wellbeing has always been central to Scandinavian way of life. The winters are long and hard, and sometimes, to pull you through the long winter, you do just need a little bit of self care, a nice long bath, a skin care regime then some cozy pyjamas in a warm living room - maybe with a favourite book....or who are we kidding a bit of celebrity junk TV!
So - to all our Nordic friends - please be aware of the short entry dates this year - it is all being squeezed in so you can celebrate your win by Christmas. Dates are here.
For everyone else waiting on the UK, ASIA and USA GMA awards, as well as our 2023 Global Green Beauty Awards - these dates will be announced in December.
Wishing you a lovely Autumn and I hope you get to have a bit of a slower pace now the year is winding to an end.
We have been so busy and excited recently since we announced the Winners of the UK 2022 Global Makeup Awards. We received over 250 entries into this year's UK 2022 Global Makeup Awards, there was fierce competition among the best brands in the industry. We were so impressed with the quality of the products which entered!
The products were judged over a period of several months by our judges who eventually decided on the best beauty products for 2022 within the UK. There is a full winners list within Global Makeup Magazine on this website, but in today’s blog and in the next few blogs I’m going to take a closer look at the people behind some of the winning brands.
Carter Beauty were Gold Winners in the Best Primer category for their wonderful Youth boost primer and serum. You probably already know about Marissa Carter, who is extremely popular on social media for her fantastic tutorials and the brave and honest way she shares all her challenges and successes with her followers. If you don’t yet know much about Marissa then I’ll just briefly outline her career! She has over 20 years’ experience in the beauty business and has a reputation for driving innovation, being behind nearly 150 make-up products, many of which are sold across the 1500 Walmart stores across the USA. The first Irish brand to reach this amazing achievement. Furthermore, her products are stocked in 23 countries, and sales average three bottles per minute. The great thing about Marissa’s social media pages is that we see directly the hard work and passion behind the scenes as well as the ups and downs! Sometimes we’ll see the glamorous side such as appearances at the Oscars and sometimes she’ll share her struggles and frustrations in a way that we can all relate to.
Let’s take a look now at Gold Winner for Best Lash / Brow Product which went to Marina Miracle for their Eyelash & Brow Serum. Founded by Marina Elisabeth Engervik who aged just 4, ended up in hospital due to her eczema. If you’ve read my previous blogs then you’ll know that deeply personal experiences similar to this are often the catalysts behind the creation of the best brands. Moving into her teens, she then struggled with acne, sensitive and irritated skin and continued to struggle to find any treatments or products which would work for her. Deciding that she wanted to solve the problem herself, Marina began her journey of testing and researching ingredients and formulas, eventually perfecting the product which we have today.
Once again, I’ve loved researching and sharing the fascinating stories behind some of my favourite products. Both Marissa and Marina are clearly passionate about their brands and work so hard to make them the very best they can be. Knowing the backstories makes using the products a much more meaningful experience too!
By the way - we also have entries open for our 2022 Global Green Beauty Awards which celebrates the best in green and clean beauty brands. If your brand is organic, natural, ethical or zero waste - why not enter for a chance for showing off your green credentials!
I’ll be back again soon looking at some more winners! I can’t wait!
Thanks again for joining me!
Ciao for now
