Introducing the 2016 Glamour Beauty Awards…

This month we’re celebrating the twelfth annual Glamour Beauty Awards—so if you want the high-quality new contouring tool or the mascara makeup artists kill for, run, don’t walk, to our listing of winners. For the event, the world’s pinnacle hair and makeup professionals shared their selections. But we all probably have a few of our own private Splendor bests and worsts we’d like to share with the arena, so in no precise order, can also I gift mine?

best new development in the global of Beauty:

The playful DGAF mindset that’s everywhere right now—a shift in our tradition from the concept of make-up as a manner to match in (cover up that flaw! Make the one’s cheekbones higher!) to make up as a manner to face out (throw on glitter! Have amusing with coloration!). My favourite example du jour is the ombré lip, above, invented through make-up goddess Pat McGrath (you use lipstick plus matching glitter, and no, it ain’t for consuming spaghetti, However, man, is it cool). If it looks like you: Strive the Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 kit ($60, sephora.Com). Our editors even examined it out, so you can see the way it appears on.

Most unexpected location to collect Beauty ideas:

The Olympics. I used to suppose it became just abnormal that athletes wear make-up. And it’s miles peculiar that in a few sports, like gymnastics and ice skating, it appears implicitly required—could your uneven bar routine or triple Lutz absolutely be any less magnificent without a smoky eye? However, Rio simply made me happy, because the make-up seemed much less like five-hour ­pancake-foundation sessions and more like fun. See Simone Biles (beneath, #2) and smile. just study that crimson, white, and blue liner! (And that brilliant gold hardware around her neck, of path.)

Product I now suggest to everybody:

makeup-putting spray. Stole the idea from my favored Tv make-up artists and haven’t appeared lower back. My modern-day move to is City Decay De-Slick makeup putting Spray ($30, urbandecay.Com); it makes the whole lot stick.

Product I Maximum want I’d started using years ago:

Sunscreen. It took me way too long (like, into-my-Thirties lengthy) to genuinely come round on the energy of defensive myself. You realize whilst you study those interviews with the divinely terrific Julianne Moore and she’s announcing how her best Beauty device has usually been sunscreen? She is not lying! And but it took me a brush with skin cancer as a person (all best, But scary) to clearly learn my lesson, and today, to my chagrin, my own 13-12 months-vintage shouts with pride while she gets tan traces. Please, the following time you pay attention yourself pronouncing, “I so need a tan,” consider her and each other woman who’s listening. Allow’s set a higher instance. Safety is lovely.
