How are winners chosen? Products are judged by a panel of 6 judges from the beauty industry. To keep the awards fair we do not disclose their identity. Products are judged on their product efficacy.
Who are the judges? We keep the identities of the judges private to keep the awards fair and not biased.
How do I guarantee a win? There is no way to guarantee a win in the awards as the products are judged solely and independently by the judges with the judging criteria being product efficacy. Tips - entering more products for different categories will increase the exposure of your products to the judges and mean that your product has more opportunities to win. However, we cannot guarantee any wins in the Global Makeup Awards. If the product is not judged by the judges as a gold or silver winner, then unfortunately you have not won. It is therefore important that you enter a competitive product which has excellent results and is likely to impress the judges.
How do I enter Editor's Choice Award? Any brand who enters a product into the Global Makeup Awards is automatically entered into the Editor's Choice Award. Here the favourites of the Editor are announced and could be products that haven't won a specific category which they entered for.
I'm a blogger, can I enter? Unfortunately we do not have categories relevant for beauty bloggers yet. For the moment the Global Makeup Awards and the Global Green Beauty Awards, we are only open for brands with products.
