Founded by Attracta Courtney in 2014, the Attracta Beauty Awards are the only one conducted by an internationally renowned make-up artist making them a first within the industry. They began from her desire to share professional insider knowledge and start a conversation around what makes the best beauty products in the industry. Each year she invites a panel of professional artists to join her to judge all the product entries and put them through their paces and this year there’s a new addition with a Sustainability Award included for the first time.
Leading make-up artists Kim Brown, Kelly Cornwell, Sara Raeburn, Gina Kane, Valeria Ferreira, Florrie White and international hair stylists Tracie Cant and Gow Tanaka made up the 2019 panel. These nine professional artists of the beauty world have a global influence and over a century of combined experience across leading fashion magazines and ground-breaking catwalk shows. Each judge’s work is steeped in iconography and their clients span the most recognised faces on the planet including Victoria Beckham, Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cara Delevigne.
The awards took place on the rooftop terrace of The Ham Yard Hotel in Central London and took as its theme Beauty of the Ages. Here are the victorious brands in the Makeup category. The full list of winners can be found here.
