Welcome to the 16th annual IMAGE Beauty Awards! We’ve gathered the best beauty launches from the last year, across hair, make-up, skincare and bodycare, and shared them with Ireland’s most authoritative industry experts to bring you the ultimate breakdown of the products you need in your arsenal. The judging panel spent months trialling and testing on themselves and their clients for the fabulous 32-page IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement in association with McCauley Health and Beauty Pharmacy, that was on sale with the May issue of IMAGE Magazine and is now available for your reading pleasure right here!
