Shop All the Glamour Beauty Awards Readers’ Choice Makeup Nominees

For the past 16 years, the Glamour Beauty Awards have celebrated the products that have changed our routines forever: conditioners that transform curls, eye creams that reverse time, lipsticks that make us feel ready to take on the world. But if there’s one thing that makes us even more excited to rummage to through thousands of products (yes, thousands, and trust us, we do), it’s hearing the feedback from you.

That’s where our Glamour Beauty Awards Readers’ Choice nominations come in. From foundation to nail polish to fragrance, our editors narrowed down a list of the products you can’t stop talking about, and now we’re asking you to vote on your all-time favorites of the bunch. The polls are open for the next four weeks—click here to cast your votes!—then we’ll tally up the winners. They’ll be announced on March 23, along with the rest of the Glamour Beauty Award honorees.

In the meantime, you can study up on—or shop—all the products up for nomination in our Readers’ Choice makeup category. Check them out, below, then don’t forget to vote.

Best Foundation

Fact: No one wants to hear “your foundation looks so good today.” And that’s where these ace of bases come in. Each act like a filter for your skin to cover redness or dark spots, blur away lines and pores, and they don’t get dry or patchy before 3 P.M. Another non-negotiable? A wide range of shades. These all have over 30—and then some.

Best Powder

Wanted: A powder that doesn’t cake, settle into lines, or make your face look flat. Found: The powders that deliver. Whether you prefer an option that’s pressed (like Burt’s Bees’ compacts), tinted (like Maybelline’s Fit Me), or translucent—like Ilia’s natural formula, Marc Jacobs’ satiny finish, and Laura Mercier’s loose powder, which also comes in a deep translucent shade to prevent white casts—these powders meet all our incredibly tough standards.

Best Concealer

For something so basic, finding the perfect concealer can often feel like signing up for every dating app at once: overwhelming. That’s where online reviews can be particularly helpful. These five standouts consistently top best-seller charts and get five-star ratings from shoppers around the country. Charlotte Tilbury and YSL are famed for their lightweight coverage that blurs everything away, while CoverGirl, Maybelline, and Too Faced give full, non-cakey coverage.

Narrowing down a singular mascara as the best is tough task, given that the criteria for what “works” is so intensely personal. But after reading pages of reviews and testing our way through every mascara that lands on our desks, we’re confident these nominees check whatever box is important to you—whether that’s drama, definition, or a formula that won’t smudge under your eyes 10 minutes later.

Once something you could only get with a prescription, you can now get longer, stronger lashes with a click of a button. Packed with proprietary blends of vitamins, peptides, and amino acids, these treatments go to work to help enhance short lashes and repair any brittleness. Grande Cosmetics has been getting a ton of hype among bloggers, while Meghan Markle herself swears by Revitalash.

A killer highlighter can be the difference between radiant, dewy skin—and, well, a streak of sparkle. These formulas would never. Whether you prefer a creamy texture like Pat McGrath’s balm, a liquid consistency like L’Oréal’s Glotion (it deserves a win just for its name alone), or a classic powder that melts into your skin instead of sit on it (sup, Dior and Fenty), these five are the highlights of all the highlighters out there.

Best Blush

One of the most severely underrated products in our humble opinion, blush has the ability to completely transform your face. With the right placement and shade, it does the job we all really wanted contour to do—in a much more natural way. It wakes up your complexion, makes cheekbones pop, and can make an intimidating lipstick shade instantly more wearable. Plus, just look at this packaging—it’s fun! Go for a rose palette or a stamp that presses on like a heart, or stick to a tried-and-true fave like Tarte or bareMinerals.

Best Bronzer

Gone are the days when brands tried to pass off three pale shades as bronzer for all. The latest iterations don’t read chalky on dark skin or muddy on pale skin because there are now more colors to choose from. Benefit, for example, recently expanded its reader-beloved Hoola line to include two deep shades and one fairer option, while every Insta-girl will talk your ear off about the magic Drunk Elephant’s D-Bronzi (mix it in your foundation for an instant back-from-vacation glow).

Best Nail Polish

For a nail polish to be one of the best, it has to do more than look great on. It has to be easy to apply (no glops, no streaks). It needs to last for longer than 36 hours. And the colors to choose from have to be good—whether you’re feeling a baby pink or a dark blue. Fortunately, we managed to find five that are up to the task—so all you have to do is pick your favorite.

Best Lip Color

Ruby Woo. Pillow Talk. Wild Ginger. Some lip colors are so iconic, they’re known alone by sight, number, or name. MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, and Tom Ford most certainly fall into the category of “cult classics,” but don’t sleep on the number of really solid drugstores options that are also coming out. Case in point: one of our editors fell asleep in Maybelline’s SuperStay Matte Ink and woke up to a perfectly precise lip. That’s how long-lasting it is. Whatever way you go here, though, you really can’t go wrong.

Best Brow Product

Remember when brows were something you just tweezed occasionally—that didn’t have their own full routine? Yeah, us neither. You can thank Cara Delevingne and the surge of pencils, pomades, gels, and powders made specifically to address whatever hyperspecific need you have for that. It’s hard to beat out the cult of Boy Brow (and the fluffy, full look it delivers), but then again the others all landed on best-sellers lists last year, so the competition is stiff (unlike these formulas).

Kylie Jenner landed a nomination on her packaging alone (the Momager palette, we mean…), while Kim Kardashian’s new KKW formulas stack up with the best of them. Like Tom Ford’s and Huda Beauty’s, all the shades you’ll find here are rich, buttery, with intensely beautiful color payoff. In other words: They’re what your Friday night is missing.

Best Eyeliner

We’ll get right to the point: A great eyeliner needs to be sharp, easy to apply, and survive a day of staring at a screen (or a sweaty night out). That’s where these overachievers come in. Even the drugstore steals are worthy enough to make it on the red carpet, like last year’s Beauty Award winner. “I love that this is long-wearing and smudge-proof,” says celebrity makeup artist Kira Nasrat says of Revlon’s Colorstay. “It’s an essential for the red carpet, especially under those bright lights and long press days!”

The same goes for when you’re doing a full face of makeup. One quick squeeze can make your eyes look bigger and brighter in an instant. Looking for the curlers that won’t pinch or tug? We found them.

All that is to say that clean makeup is better than its ever been, as evidenced by this list. We brought back three of last year’s Beauty Awards winners due to the overwhelming love they received, plus added two new faves to the list. If you’re looking to clean up your routine, this is a great place to start.

Best Cleanser

Wanted: A cleanser that easily removes makeup—no elbow grease necessary—without leaving skin feeling tight or squeaky clean. We’ve found that these deliver every single time. In fact, the Cetaphil wipes wowed the judges in last year’s Beauty Awards. “I travel all the time, and these wipes make it easy to remove my makeup quickly and effectively,” said celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa.

These are best for taking skin from congested to clear.

And Drunk Elephant’s BabyFacial, which won a Reader’s Choice award last year, is back again for seconds. “It takes away dull and dry skin and brings out a natural healthy glow,” said reader Samantha Crompton. But with cult-favorites like Tatcha’s The Rice Polish (which counts Meghan Markle as a fan) and Dr. Dennis Gross’s signature peel pads (which top makeup artists swear by), it’s going to be a tight race.

These cover a wide range of budgets without skimping on the results—win-win.

That’s why entire serums are based on the stuff, with L’Oréal selling a bottle of Revitalift every minute (!) and Eminence Organics pairing its with a light exfoliant. These powerful hydrators all offer something a little different.

These are as powerful as you’ll get without a prescription—across a range of price points.

My skin texture even felt bouncier and smoother,” said writer Sarah Wu of its effects in her review. Its price, of course, isn’t for everyone, and that’s where these other top-sellers come in. The only hard part is choosing.

For a body lotion to be one of the best, it has to do more than moisturize. It has to soothe. It should repair and renew. It’s got to put dry, flaky skin into retirement. And it has to do all of that without feeling greasy or sticky for the next hour. Fortunately, we managed to find five that check off the boxes—so all you have to do is pick your favorite.

It’s hard for a deodorant to be standout—they’re more function than form, TBH—but these five get pretty close. Dove deodorant, a 2019 Beauty Award winner, got raves from Potempa, who said, “I love this deodorant! It feels refreshing and offers a cool sensation thanks to the infusion of cucumber.” Meanwhile, Megababe’s sold out in minutes and drew a 13,000-person waiting list—a deodorant, people. Consider it a lesson not to underestimate the underarms.

Vanessa Hudgens’s First Appearance Since the Austin Butler–Split Rumor Is a Total Mood

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler reportedly went their separate ways after almost nine years together, sending fans into a collective period of mourning. But do you know who seems completely unbothered by all the breakup chatter? Vanessa Hudgens herself, who was living her best life on the red carpet for the premiere of Bad Boys for Life on Tuesday night (January 14).

Hudgens, who stars in the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, was too busy having a good time to address the rumors, which sources confirmed this week. According to someone who spoke to Us Weekly, “Vanessa and Austin are officially broken up, and Vanessa has been telling those close to her about their breakup.” And while she may have been opening up about the sitch to her friends, she clearly was not going to dwell on it at the premiere. The photos speak for themselves, and they’re a total mood.

Twitter was all about Hudgens’s energy. “Vanessa Hudgens said I gotta go my own way,” one fan joked on social media, referencing her epic breakup song with Zac Efron from High School Musical 2. “She’s clearly unbothered and looks absolutely stunning,” another person said.

Butler and Hudgens started dating in 2011. In 2018 the holiday rom-com star opened up about the relationship, saying of Butler, “He inspires me more than anyone. We both respect, trust, and admire each other. It’s so solid now because I feel strong as an independent woman. I am very self-reliant, but it’s nice to have a best friend you can share victories with as well as losses.”

Rumors of a breakup started swirling after fans noticed Hudgens had posted lots of Instagram photos during the holidays and on vacation that didn’t include Butler. Neither of them have publicly confirmed the breakup, but regardless of what’s going on, Hudgens seems totally fine.

Taylor Swift’s New Documentary Is Coming To Netflix This Month

Taylor Swift‘s new documentary, Miss Americana, finally has a concrete release date. It’s set to come to Netflix on January 31, a week after it premieres at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23. After a brief period in December where both Swift and fans were unsure if it would come out, it’s now set to arrive very soon.

The release of the movie was recently thought to be in limbo due to Swift’s feud with Scooter Braun and Big Machine’s Scott Borchetta. Last November, Swift shared a note on Twitter, captioned “Don’t know what to do,” in which she accused both Braun and Borchetta of stopping her from performing some of her old songs, pre-Lover, at the American Music Awards. She also alleged that they were working to block her from using her old music for the documentary too.

Later that month, Big Machine announced that a licensing agreement had been approved, enabling Swift to perform her songs at the AMAs and Braun posted that he wanted to ‘come together’ with Swift and work out their disagreements. In December,  older songs for the documentary were reportedly cleared for use.

Miss Americana looks at Swift’s career and is “a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice,” according to a statement.

After My Dad Died, I Started Sending Him Emails. Months Later, Someone Wrote Back

As expected, I only found about 10 emails between us in as many years of Gmail use. The revelation was not in anything I read but in the mere typing of his name—an icy wave of relief splashing me in the face. How good it felt to write his name for no reason, in a place that only I could see, and not on some piece of paperwork related to his death or in response to some well-wisher’s post on Facebook. It was like charging a magical sigil. I’d never been one of those writers who attached fetishistic significance to the physical act of writing (or to books themselves, or paper). But I finally understood how those writers felt. Writing to my father, I realized, was a charmed act. It didn’t summon him, but it raised the friendly shadow of him in the room; that was something.

I began writing him emails. I didn’t send them at first. Typing his email address into the “recipient” bar was enough to conjure up his listening presence. For months I transcribed the hostile anguish in my head into emails to my father, which I would then seal off with the addition of his email address and save in my drafts folder. It was the high school diary, unfiltered. He would never find out how it ended now; it felt good to “tell” him.

The first time I pressed “send,” it was by accident, and I was horrified. I was worried not that someone would receive and read the email, but that the recipient address would bounce back a message that the account had been deactivated.

I stared at my inbox for a minute, waiting for the inevitable. It never happened. The email address was still active.

So I continued the ritual, except now I sent those long-winded emails out. I wrote to my father anytime I needed him. In my letters, I tried to talk myself around to whatever he would have said to me, hoping I could reverse-engineer the advice he might have given me. Then I pressed “send,” which never stopped being thrilling—I’d sidestepped the finality of death and found a plane where my father could thrive unchallenged. I put disclaimers at the beginning of every email: Hey, if you can somehow read this, please ignore it; hey, I don’t think anyone’s checking this email, but if you are then please just delete without reading; I’m lonely, I’m grieving, I miss my father, nothing to see here. But nobody ever responded.

One day, a year and a half later, someone did respond—not from my father’s email address, thank God, or I likely would have passed out at my desk. Still, it was frightening to see another email address from the same Workplace suite, with the same subject line. I don’t know what I was frightened of, exactly. Only that the stakes felt terribly high. I’d forgotten the cardinal rule of doing anything online, even sending emails to a dead person’s inbox—everything that happens online can be witnessed by an audience.

The response I received is the reason you’re reading this, because I posted it on Twitter and it went viral. “I’m sure you remember me,” my father’s former coworker wrote. “I want you to know that I never read these emails because I can tell they are very personal. But I do see them coming in and I can see that you must still miss your dad terribly.” There was more; I’m self-conscious about typing it all out, because of how generous it was for this person to not only share memories of my father with me, but to interpret them, color them with our shared understanding of what my father and I had been together. Like, for example: “Watching the two of you together wisecracking…it was like watching a Mel Brooks movie.”

Right after he died, all I ever wanted to do was talk about how great my dad was. People never quite related to that urge properly, leaving me feeling frustrated and thwarted at every turn. I was so dialed into my grief that it was unimaginable to me how people could talk to me about anything else. I wanted other people to tell me funny stories that made my father sound as cool and charming as I’d always believed him to be, without my having to ask for it. That was the thing that my dad’s old coworker did for me. I shot the signals of my mourning into space for months, fully expecting them to die unreceived. And when I least expected it, someone sent signals back that said, “You are not the last living witness to the relationship you had with your father.”

Audrey Hepburn Style: These Audrey Hepburn Style Moments Are Simply Timeless

There’s a reason fashion brands with a classic bent love to reference Audrey Hepburn: True style is more than wearing a couple of ballgowns to a few red carpet events—and Audrey Hepburn had style in spades. Onscreen, Hepburn floated in custom-made dresses by Givenchy founder Hubert de Givenchy. Offscreen, Hepburn made wearing pedal pushers and simple, unadorned tops into an art. So many Audrey Hepburn style moments made history, she was inducted to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

Casual fans know Audrey Hepburn style as the black dress she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But Hepburn’s style was so much more than the costume for one of her iconic roles, however—and Audrey Hepburn style moments are still influencing how we dress today. Just revisit the next several outfits from Audrey Hepburn’s illustrious career for proof.

The Black Sheath

Black sheath dresses figured prominently in the Audrey Hepburn style lexicon. Like this one, they included a handful of chic details including a sleeveless silhouette, a belted waist, and a midi hem. We see echoes this Audrey Hepburn look in the bateau necklines and mid-calf length dresses worn by modern style icons like the royal family today.

Audrey Hepburn style starts and ends with a black dress.

The Bold Pattern

Fashion authorities recognized that Audrey Hepburn style was special in her time. The spiral-decked dress she wears in the photo below came courtesy of an Amsterdam fashion show she modeled in. As far as Audrey Hepburn’s outfits went, bold patterns like the one on her runway look weren’t the norm—but the curved collar and A-line waist could be spotted in outfits throughout her career. Then there’s her accessories: Elbow-length gloves were the Hepburn must-have for a touch of elegance.

The Floral Dress

Oscars fashion hasn’t always been swan skirts and tuxedo-ballgown hybrids. In 1954, Audrey Hepburn attended the 26th Academy Awards in a much more understated look: a tea-length floral dress with another bateau neckline. Hepburn accepted the Oscar for Best Actress in Roman Holiday that night. Maybe it’s just us, but her belted dress wouldn’t have looked out of place in the movie.

An Audrey Hepburn style moment for the ages at the Academy Awards.

The Sailor Shorts

With all the love Hepburn’s Givenchy dresses receive, you could assume the actress wore them exclusively. But high-waist sailor shorts played a starring role in Hepburn’s offscreen wardrobe. It’s not clear when a photographer captured this glimpse at one of Hepburn’s downtime outfits, but the combination of her crisp shorts, plaid blouse, and raffia slides are easy summer dressing inspiration. Tuck a breezy long-sleeve top into pleated shorts, and you’ve nailed the look.

Even when she dressed casually, Hepburn always looked polished.

Bettmann

The Travel Dress

Today, celebrity travel style usually involves leggings, hoodies, and sneakers. In Audrey Hepburn’s day, the tarmac was a runway—and demanded more formal attire. She touched down in London on this occasion in a long-sleeve travel dress, worn with—what else?—gloves and pumps. The woman’s style was nothing if not consistent.

You wouldn’t catch Audrey Hepburn in a laid-back look to travel.

The Twisted Top

Suiting tops and ankle-grazing skirts were always Audrey Hepburn style staples. But for this photoshoot, Hepburn chose an unexpected statement piece. Her black skirt and ballet flats draw our eyes straight to her long-sleeve wrap top. It’s a playful choice in an otherwise buttoned-up outfit, and an outfit that’d look at home on the streets of New York Fashion Week.

Audrey Hepburn style in one word: timeless.

Meghan Markle Makes First Appearance Since Announcing She’s Stepping Down as a Senior Royal

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to “step back” as senior royals shocked the world over the last few days. But amid the whirlwind, the Duchess of Sussex made some time for an engagement. On Tuesday, January 14, she paid a visit to Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre. The organization shared that Markle had tea with members and discussed several issues affecting the community.

The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, which provides a safe space for women while creating social programs, advocacy, and support, shared the news with a photo of Markle smiling next to several women. “Look who we had tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues affecting women in the community,” the center wrote on Facebook.

Both Markle and Prince Harry have had a lot going on since issuing a statement that explained they hope to transition into new roles in the royal family and establish financial independence. On Monday, January 13, Prince Harry made his way back to London for a meeting convened with the Queen, in which they reportedly discussed details of what the new set-up might look like. That day, the Queen broke her silence on the situation. “My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family,” she said. “Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”

She added that Markle and Prince Harry will split their time between Canada and the U.K., and it seems that engagements like visiting the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre are all part of what the couple has envisioned in their new arrangement. They’ve said they want to keep working on the charities and public issues they’ve been championing, so Markle surely has more events like this in her future.

This freedom from the male gaze allowed for more creativity to actually do the work. Winstead, 35, says, “You’re not scrutinized with, ‘How can she look hotter?’ Which is an experience I’ve definitely had in the past.” Adds Perez: “It’s not like, ‘Let’s just put her in that because her ass is great,’ which I know we’ve all experienced.”

Smollett-Bell credits the general lack of objectification to having Yan and producer Sue Kroll at the helm with Robbie. “I realized, prior to this, how many projects I’ve been on where I’m the only woman on set and how alone I’ve felt,” she says.


By the women’s accounts, this is what I imagine true parity on a film set looks like: a safe environment where everyone can show up and do their best work, one in which female stars get the recognition they deserve, no questions asked. Perez says that hit home for her when she saw the movie’s official poster for the first time. She was surprised it was just the four women front and center. “In a lot of films, the male always gets the first billing no matter how big or small their part is,” she says. “Being in this business for so long, you still think the men are going to show up, you know? It felt very, very empowering.”

At this point in the conversation, I ask what each woman has learned from the others—and they all turn to Perez. “Why did you look at me?” she asks. “Because you’re just wise,” Smollett-Bell replies. “We all have girl crushes on you, in case you can’t tell.”

They take a moment to reminisce about the wrap party—a night when everyone danced so much that Perez had to put ice packs on her knees after. Then, a beat. Perez decides to share instead what she appreciated about the other women. First, she turns to Robbie. “I appreciated how Margot can be in charge but not make you feel less-than,” she says. “Sometimes when actors are also producers, they feel that they have to wear that hat too strongly. That wasn’t the case, so I appreciated how she kept her emotions in control all the time. Her professionalism is outstanding.”

And Winstead, Perez tells me, is the kindest person she’s ever met. (“I’m going to cry!” Winstead replies.)

As for Smollett-Bell: “With Jurnee, what I appreciated was that she’s strong. She’s so, so strong,” Perez says, directing her words to her costar. “You stand up for yourself in a very, very specific way. But inside, you’re so soft.”

The women all echo Perez’s comments, but Robbie has one final appreciation to share. “Rosie, who’s a legend in this industry already, can still show up like it’s brand-new, like she’s never said these words before. It always feels fresh and present. It’s so thrilling to work opposite someone who makes you forget you’re on a set. The set kind of melts away for a second. That only happens if people are present, and if they really show up for that scene with everything they have. Everyone here did that. I loved it. I loved it.”
