FASHION Magazine’s 2018 Beauty Awards

NEW this year - FASHION Magazine’s Beauty Awards now includes 11 Men's categories.

FASHION Magazine is tapping into the expertise of 25 Canadian beauty professionals to judge the most outstanding products in the beauty industry. From makeup artists and manicurists to editors and estheticians, this year’s jury members will select the most impressive products in the Canadian market. Also joining the all-star panel, five FASHION Magazine readers (and avid beauty lovers) will also weigh in on the best of the best in Canadian beauty.

We have divided the awards into six beauty categories: FACE, COSMETICS, BODY, HAIRCARE, FRAGRANCE and MEN’s — and will be awarding a 2018 New Marketplace Innovation Award in each category for the best in technology and innovation.

All beauty brands are invited to register their products for consideration in this year’s Beauty Awards at
