It's been a glorious July and so the team at the Global Makeup Awards thought we would go for a team day. Nothing brings about brainstorming of ideas like sitting in a beautiful summer garden in the rolling countryside. So we booked a luxury country house in the lovely countryside of Oxfordshire. We were taken by the friendly drivers from Sprinters Travel who took our whole group there from Marlow in a stylish Mercedes minibus which the whole girl gang loved!
The group was travelling from across areas like Windsor, Marlow and London, so we thought Oxfordshire was the perfect place to unwind, relax and brainstorm our big projects for 2020. We are currently open with the Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards but we still have big and huge things to make nexts years awards even bigger. So many beauty, cosmetics and makeup brands participated in the Global Makeup Awards this year, so we wanted to see what we can do to make next year even more awesome.
We want to celebrate even more winners, so we will be adding 'commended' winners to our list for those brands who don't place first or second place but still deserve a mention. We will also revisit our categories - there's big things out there in the world of hand and nail care and we want to recognise that. Our perspex trophies were also a huge success so we want to continue with our makeup awards trophies next year and continue with their beautiful style.
Over a glass of two of bubbling prosecco, the girls in the team had even more ideas. We want to see more GMA branding, more stamps, more compliment slips, more boxes and more work on social media. So be prepared to see our Global Makeup Awards logo take over next year in the 2020s. Next years awards will be bigger and better as we take the cosmetics and makeup side of the awards by storm! There are so many makeup brands that are out there ant nor recognised enough, so we want more and more brands to be participating! We absolutely cannot wait!
The team also love anything a bit fancy, so we will putting in a few luxury categories next year to find out the creme of the creme beauty and cosmetics products. As we only look at newly launched products each year it means consumers will know the hottest makeup products around, and to win a luxury category will really mean something for the big brands.
Galas in London?
Something really huge which the team is keen to move forwards with is an awards gala ceremony in a nice hotel in central London. We think it is important to recognise the winners of the global makeup awards in style, so this is a goal we want to work towards in the coming years. The Global Makeup Awards had its inaugural opening in 2019, so we still need to grow a little bit as a brand in order to hold a large gala. A gala is absolutely our end goad as it will truly celebrate the brands in style and show our awards off as the top makeup awards globally! We would like to then introduce this in Stockholm or Denmark as well as in New York.
We had many requests this year already to hold a gala to celebrate the beauty awards but it was not somewhere where we were at yet. However, keep an eye out as this is something we will be wanting to bring out in the near future. Anything glam is always on the teams agenda at the GMAs. So with a gala it will be a really opportunity for all to really show off the best makeup and cosmetics by having the brand partners showing up wearing their best and newly launched makeup and beauty products!
After a great day of team building and brainstorming in the sun, it was time for us to jump on our luxury minibus by Sprinters Travel and to travel back home in style. What a truly great day spent with excellent people planning big things for the GMA's next year!
The Global Makeup Awards 2019 is proud to be featured by Noughty!
It makes us burst with pride to see that the UK 2019 Global Makeup Awards is featured by none other than Noughty! You can read their feature of being a silver winner in the 2019 makeup awards above or go straight to their website and read about there win there. It is so great for brands to be promoting their win and we couldn't be prouder to see our logo on their website. We know consumers can't wait to see what the hottest products of 2019 are, and our logo is a great way of guiding them!
Noughty came second, silver place, in the Global Makeup Awards for the cateogry of Best Shampoo/ Conditioner. This was with their product - To the Rescue Intense Moisture Hair Treatment which has an RRP of £8.99. This hair treatment is made specifically for dry and damaged hair. It is 97% natural too (hence the funky name of noughty - as the idea is without horrible extra chemicals.) It is packed with sweet almond and black oat extracts which makes it a great super quenching treatment. This product will help you hydrate, restructure and transform hair in distress.
This rescue remedy smells deliciously of vanilla and works on even the most stubborn, frizz and dry hair. For best results, wash, put in and wrap in clingfilm. It can be used as an intense treatment by leaving it on the hair a little longer. Our judges were truly wowed and can't recommend this glorious product enough.
Our name at the Global Makeup Awards loved the Noughty hair treatment. If you are looking to try it for yourself you can find their To The Rescue here. A big thank you to noughty for entering the awards and for your great write up about us on your website!

Global Makeup Awards looks at Lush's new flagship Liverpool store
Bath bomb beauty bananza Lush has opened its biggest doors yet. After last year's marketing scandal of their 'anti spy cops campaign' the brand has recovered well. They have looked at revolutionising beauty spaces to create a whole experience when entering their new flagship store.
Lush have just opened their flagship store in Liverpool. It is truly huge at a massive 1380sq metres, not only is it on three floors (one of which is entirely dedicated to its own in-house spa) but it is also manned by 167 staff members.
Playing to their strengths, which is environment first, this is even replicated in their coffee bar. With plant based milks only, Lush is hot on the veganism trend as their coffee and their beauty products are of course against cruelty to animals. Their coffee is 100% vegan and their cafe is also against single use plastic. Furthermore, all their products are completely sourced in the UK to cut down their carbon footprint - so be sure to bring along your reusable flask the next time you pop to Liverpool!
Their flagship Lush store also comes complete with its own hair salon 'Lush HairLab'. This is their first hair salon and comes stocked with 50 unique hair products from Lush. Moving away from the toxicity of hair dye - this lush salon offers Henna alternatives as well as of course hair cuts, treatments and blowouts. Who knows, maybe lush will enter one of their new makeup, beauty or haircare products in the Global Makeup Awards this year as we look at all the latest products launches from the last year from the beauty industry. Our beauty and makeup awards would be delighted to have a to luxury beauty brand apply and nominate their products ready for review by our team of professional judges for review.
Physically, the open plan store is stunning - with products laid out in a way that you will want to snap it for your instagram, but also because of the floral arrangements throughout the store. In fact, it even houses its own in house florists so you can buy some plants to take home with you. Just like the coffee, all the plants are sourced from the UK. Offering seasonal bouquets, it makes for a unique purchase at the new Lush store.
Lastly, with a whole floors dedicated to a spa this is something to definitely enjoy. It is the 8th of Lush's Spas, but this one is even designed to host parties! Or else, book your self in for a relaxing massage to take the edge off shopping.
