  • What is Beauty Design Awards?
    Beauty design awards celebrates the best of design in the beauty industry. 2024 will be our fifth year running the award. The award is founded and lead by the beauty brand expert Jennifer Carlsson.
  • What does Beauty Design Awards look for?
    When deciding on the finalist and later winners for Beauty Design Awards we look for products that bring the packaging and formulation together to create a great user experience. Everything about the product is created intentionally by design. The packaging should not just be pretty, other factors that are also considered are usability, sustainability, innovation and novelty. For the formulation we look at texture, color, scent and how the product feels when applied. We do not judge effectiveness past what can be seen by eye at application. We focus on how all these factors come together to create the holistic experience of using the product. You can find a more detailed breakdown of what we look for here.
