Attracta Beauty Awards & Villiers London
The Attracta Beauty Awards was founded by Attracta Courtney, a highly regarded & respected make-up artist with 20 years experience on the international fashion and beauty circuits. Her skill, knowledge, passion and experience shines through in her work with many of the worlds top photographers & celebrities and her work and unique signature style is regularly seen on the hottest runways and prestigious glossy magazines including Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar and Vanity Fair.
The Attracta Beauty Awards are one of a kind and the first ever to have been created by a make up artist. The spirit of these awards is to recognise exceptional beauty brands and provide a platform for promising emerging ones.
Alongside Attracta, there were 6 other judges that made up the prestigious panel, including leading make up artists Kim Brown, Kelly Cornwell, Sara Raeburn, Gina Kane and Valeria Ferreira and international hair stylist Earl Simms. These judges bring to the awards their global influence, and immense knowledge and experience across leading fashion magazines and ground-breaking catwalk shows. Each judge’s work is steeped in iconography, and their clients are some of the most recognised faces on the planet, including Victoria Beckham, Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cara Delevingne. Attracta’s mission has been to appoint the best beauty custodians to join her quest in discovering and defining extraordinary beauty.
We attended the Awards ceremony in July 2018, in the beautiful Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden - the perfect setting to celebrate beauty. Attracta gave a heartfelt, energising and motivating talk around beauty - not just of the skin but of the soul and of nature. Jo Ruxton, founder and creator of the eye opening Netflix program 'A Plastic Ocean' shared her experiences, insight and mission to clean up the worlds oceans - and this was both inspiring and sobering to listen to.
Over 72 brands entered these awards with around 300 products being tested by the judges. We were honoured to win the Best New British Skincare Brand category, with all the judges finding our products and ethos forward thinking, effective, high quality and a joy to use.
