IMAGE contributing editor Melanie Morris says, “I hope we’ve included some familiar favourites here, along with some future heroes you’ll consider valuable new additions to your beauty bag. We’ve also made sure to pick up plenty of insider pro tips from our expert judging panel and have shared the best with you in the IMAGE Beauty Awards supplement.”

Check out the 10 winning lip products chosen by Christine Lucignano, celebrity make-up artist; Melanie Morris, IMAGE contributing editor; Judy Wong, freelance make-up artist; Chloé Boucher, beauty influencer; and Tara Anderson, make-up artist.
