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! Don’t forget to enter the USA 2021 Global Makeup Awards and to check out the full list of previous winners here - https://www.globalmakeupawards.com/usaglobalmakeupawardswinners.html#/
I’ll be back again soon with my last blog of the month, until then keep doing what you’re doing! We absolutely love your work!
My recent blogs showcasing some of our recent 2020 UK Global Makeup Awards winners have been pleasingly popular, I must say I love writing them! Today I would like to highlight some more wonderful
companies which not only have super products deserving of beauty awards but also have such
fascinating back-stories and positive contributions to our industry.
BEST ANTI AGEING PRODUCT GOLD WINNER
24K Gold & Manuka Honey Face Oil
Manuka Doctor was gold winner for best anti ageing product in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards. Manuka Doctor is a company with a firm foot still in its homeland among the fresh New Zealand
mountains where their expert Bee Keepers source high-quality, quality authentic Mānuka Honey.
The last few years has seen demand for the honey increase dramatically as more and more people
become tuned-in its well-being properties.
The origins of the company go all the way back to 1909 and the Manuka Doctor strives to keep their
production techniques as clean and pure now as they were in the beginning. Their philosophy is to
use the best ingredients from New Zealand and the remain a rare example of a New Zealand honey
company which runs its private business in a fully integrated way.
We loved this product because we could see an approved appearance of our skin, reduced wrinkles and improved skin radiance. It is 2020's must have beauty product.
BEST BEAUTY TOOL GOLD WINNER
Skinvigorate Sonic Skin Care System
Mary Kay Mission – Enriching the lives of women and their families around the world. That’s a great mission statement! Furthermore, Mary Kay back it up by creating excellent products
which really do have a positive effect on women and their families!
Founded in 1963, Mary Kay’s original offer consisted of one foundation product along with four
skincare products. By the late eighties they had banned animal testing and created a recycling
programme. Soon after they achieved the impressive milestone of $1Billion wholesale sales.
According to Instagram Mary Kay China has just celebrated its 25 th Birthday.
The company’s standpoint on equality is inspirational and I absolutely love how they promote their
beauty products from a feminist standpoint as well as vocally getting behind the recent #BLM
movement. This is a company run by people who know who they are and what change they want to
make in the world. Mary Kay’s huge success only underpins the notion that you don’t have to
abandon your values to be successful.
The Skinvigorate Sonic Skin Care System provides you with a cleaner, impurity free face in just 60 seconds. It was truly deserving of a gold win in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards. The Skinvigorate also removes 4 x more dirt, makeup and pollutants compared to just hand cleaning at home. This means you are left with super clean skin, that looks fresher and rejuvenated. It really is a must have cleanser, up there with LumiSpa and Foreo Luna 3 skincare cleansers.
I’d love to tell you more about these brands but probably the best thing you can do is head over to
their websites to find out more about their history, their products and their latest news.
They are thoroughly deserving of their beauty awards and in this tough year so far, I definitely think
any products that help us feel better and healthier are a great thing,
By the way, here in Italy the weather is super-hot, just as it has been in the UK, and it is great to see
lots of German tourists have come back to Italy as soon as they could, to enjoy the food, culture and
beautiful scenery. It’s a huge boost not only to the tourism sector but to everyone’s mood. Living in
a ghost town started off like a novelty but it soon became quite draining!
Also, thank you for all your entries in the Global Green Beauty Awards and the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards - watch out for their entry deadlines closing in mid july and 1st of August respectively.
Until next time!
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
