Good afternoon from London where spring is trying its best to nudge its way out in front of winter
but not very successfully (so far)!
Today I want to shine a spotlight on some of our previous winners.
SKOGEN had a great year last year, winning two gold awards and one silver for their Jasmine
Collection moisturiser and eye-cream products.
“Skogen” means “forest” in Swedish and I think this name perfectly captures the company’s ethos
which is to use all-natural ingredients and work in an environmentally friendly way while creating
top-quality beauty products. SKOGEN is based in New York and Sweden and has placed itself at the
forefront of high-end beauty product brands.
They are also featured in this month’s British edition of VOGUE magazine see online version here -

Another of our winners was Rose and Caramel. Established in 2010 with the objective of creating
the perfect tanner, Rose and Caramel’s initial breakthrough came with their launch of Nudity
Aerosol. Since then they have gone from strength to strength. A busy duo, Rose and Caramel have
recently been in Los Angeles, mingling with some huge influencers and visiting the LA Pretty Little
BEST BATH / SHOWER PRODUCT GOLD WINNER

BEST BRONZER/ HIGHLIGHTER SILVER WINNER

FOREO were worthy winners of our Best Beauty Electrical Device Gold Award for their LUNA 3
Despite the fact that six years ago the company consisted of just two employees, Foreo has
experienced amazing growth and success and now employs over 3000 people across the globe. The
company was founded in Sweden and takes great pride in hiring staff from a range of backgrounds,
which complements the company’s innovative approach and unconventional yet ground-breaking
way of pushing forward technological solutions.
BEST BEAUTY ELECTRICAL DEVICE GOLD WINNER
The final company which we want to highlight today is Dr Lipp, producers of 100% (not 99%) natural
products. Founded by the infuriatingly multi-talented and stunningly beautiful Pontine, while she
was working in Milan. Now based in both West London and a sweet Verbier chalet, Pontine searched
high and low for a lip balm which would meet her needs until she stumbled upon nipple balm as the
perfect way to keep her skin in prime condition.
BEST LIPGLOSS GOLD WINNER - Dr. Lipp
Moisturising Colour Tints,
BEST LIP BALM GOLD WINNER - Dr. Lipp

The 2019 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards will be announced on 10th December!
December is an exciting month, we’re all looking forward to Christmas, presents, delicious food and
seeing our families and friends. What else could we possibly want? Well, for those who work in the
make-up industry, an award to acknowledge all the passion, effort and creativity they have put in to
driving forward their products would be a nice cherry on the top after a hard year!
Additionally, for millions of customers around the world, a stamp of approval on a product which
confirms its quality and value is a very useful tool when faced with a myriad of options! In a world
where it can be hard to know which the best option is, an award from a trusted source makes things
just a little but easier. Judges at The Global Makeup Awards have decades of experience in the
industry and know everything there is to know about what makes a great product!
It’s also been a busy twelve months for us, and we are also looking forward to finishing the year with
a bang! 2019 has brought a record number of entries, and we can safely say that the bar continues
to rise. The competition has been strong, and it warms our hearts to see the advances made in the
Makeup products are continuously developing, improving and adapting in an ever-changing industry.
This can’t happen without a lot of blood, sweat and tears behind the scenes. As we near the holiday
period and a well-earned chance to relax and re-charge it is time to assess the year’s achievements
and to recognise the passion and exertion that has been involved in creating amazing new products
that satisfy the highest of expectations in a fast-paced world.
Picking the winners has been a difficult task and our six judges have meticulously analysed every
product entered into the competition, ensuring that every entry has been scrutinised and tested.
They have had the pleasure of testing a wide range of quality makeup products from a number of
brands but then been faced with the arduous task of scoring and ranking the products.
Now, the time is here to announce the results, and, on the 10th December, we will name the
winners of the Gold and Silver awards.
A massive thank you to all the companies who entered, and to our six esteemed judges who
approached their roles with enthusiasm, professionalism and diligence.
We’re starting the festive season on a high, who will be a winner this year? Not only does a win
reward the company and employees with recognition of their efforts but they will receive added
promotion and exciting content on social media and improve their SEO. The Scandinavian Global
Makeup Awards certificate looks great in the office and the logo makes an eye-catching and
attractive addition to your website and promotional material. As a wise woman once sang – “All I
Want for Christmas is a Scandinavian Global Makeup Award”, who will be crowned winner this 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!

Creative social media posts
We love the look of Yardley London's social media posts. They have used the stunning floral design from their Flowerful Collection to create a summery border. In the post is their Gold award winning product - Luxe Gardenia Eau de Toilette. They have also inserted into this create social media post their gold winners badge from the Global Makeup Awards 2019. We love the final look of this post as it suits the beautiful June weather which is the month their award was won in. It matches the beautiful name of their collection - the Flowerful collection and is a great way to grab attention on social media. Why not create something similar with a fun border to promote your award win?
What a creative post from argentum apothecary! We absolutely adore the art work which is in keeping with their band style. An extremely innovative and creative way to promote their three wins for Best Luxury Brand, Best Packaging and Best Cleanser. We really do adore what they have done with their win as it makes it look like a burst of sunshine with the hands beautiful cupping the awards logo. This post is really so creative, this really does deserve some gold stars for their innovation and creativity to make something so beautiful to promote their win. The mix of black and white contrasting against the colour of the logo is stunning. Thank you argentum apothecary for not only your award winning beauty products, but also your innovation and style in promoting them!
