UK 2023 Global Makeup Awards open 6th January
Hi everybody and Happy New Year to you all!
I’m back in Italy now but I had a really great Christmas in the UK and it was so good to see my family and also pop in and visit the rest of the Global Makeup Awards team. We ate, we laughed and we just enjoyed spending time together. It didn’t matter that the weather was foul or that we all seemed to pick up the flu, it was still a wonderful week!
Anyway, before Christmas we announced the Scandinavia Global Makeup Award Winners from the 2022 Scandinavia Global Makeup Awards and I gave a quick lowdown on a few of the brands who took gold.
Today, I’m going to do the same. I’ll save in-depth blogs for another day but right now we’ll just take a flying look at who won in some makeup categories and in a few cases check out some interesting stories behind their products.
First of all, the gold winner for Best Primer went to INIKA Organic for their marvellous Radiant Glow Veil. This brand was originally founded in Australia in 2006 and has gone on to huge global success, including major features in Vogue and Grazia. It comes as no surprise that they have been so warmly embraced in Scandinavia since they clearly share a lot of similar values regarding clean, toxin-free ingredients, sustainable business ethos and cruelty-free certifications. In fact, their current mission is to achieve pure plastic neutrality; hopefully this inventiveness and positive mindset will catch on!
Let’s look now at the gold winner for Best Foundation which was Lavinde Copenhagen and their NATURAL GLOW Liquid Foundation Cool Ivory 201 30 ml. This Danish brand was founded with the purpose of creating hypoallergenic skincare products and cosmetics free from parabens and perfumes. They especially enjoy creating products for pregnant women or breast-feeding mothers as well as anyone who wants to take good care of their body and avoid toxins.
Best Eye Product was a particularly competitive category but Purodoré Natural Skincare managed to take the gold with their Ceramide & Gold Firming Eye Cream. This independent, family-owned Finnish brand aims to create products which are both luxurious and sustainable. I’m quickly running out of space so I’ll just list a few other gold winners below!
Best Eyebrow Product
Alba Beauty Golden Bombshell Eyebrow Gel,
Best Eye Shadow
Alba Beauty mr mermaid Mineral EyeShadow,
Best Bronzer / Illuminator
Ecotan Coral Bronzer
Alba Beauty Just Browsing False Lash Mascara,
Best Lip Balm
Marina Miracle One & Only Lip Balm
Best Lip Product
Eco by Sonya Driver Lipstick Miami Rose
In my next blog I will focus more on some of the haircare winners from the Scandinavia Global Makeup Award Winners. In the meantime, thanks for joining me for a little look at some of the makeup winners, I’m looking forward to going into a bit more depth over the coming months!
Until then, have a great day and a wonderful 2023!
Ciao for now
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
