Party pics: Inside the NZ Best in Beauty Awards 2017

The NZ Best in Beauty Awards celebrates everything beauty.

If you’ve ever asked your friend what divine fragrance they’re wearing or raced out to by a new mascara based on a colleague’s recommendation, you’re not alone. As women, we are always searching for those holy grail beauty products – that perfect primer, that long-lasting lipstick, that flawless fake tan – and referrals are often key in us making any new beauty purchase decisions.


Which is why the Best in Beauty Awards is such an important date to note in your diary each year. It’s the announcement of the most-loved products on the market right now, and the best part is they have been voted for by New Zealand’s biggest beauty aficionados – you, our readers! With over 200,000 votes cast online, you can rest assured these products are endorsed by New Zealand women as a whole.


From day creams to day spas, fragrances to face oils, the NZ Best in Beauty Awards has you covered.


In an awards ceremony held in a grand setting at Auckland’s Heritage Hotel, Dominic Bowden hosted the evening which celebrated the finest names in the beauty industry. Bauer Media’s collective of beauty editors across esteemed titles Fashion Quarterly, Woman’s Day, New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, Australian Women’s Weekly, Simply You, Good Health Choices and NEXT presented the awards in the categories of Hair, Body, Makeup and Face. Special industry awards were also given, to acknowledge excellence in PR, marketing and innovation.
