***This is an AIMB exclusive, almost. The list aint out online yet ! You heard it first !***
Last night Vogue India celebrated their first Beauty awards show announcing the winners in various beauty / makeup categories. The event was attended by a host of celebrities including my favorite Indian model - Lakshmi Menon !
The selection process wasn't an easy one. Over 1000 products were tested by experts from the industry who then cast their votes, shortlisted 583 products. Then a panel of 11 expert judges went on to select 79 winners in 8 categories !
The panel of expert judges included many popular Bollywood actresses like Malaika Arora Khan, jewelery designers like Queenie Dhody, skin care experts, makeup artists including Mickey Contractor and of course the Vogue team.
Now onto the winners ! Its a long list so I selected a few categories to share with y'all. But if you are curious about the entire list , lemme know and I'll have it up soon !
