BEST IN BEAUTY

SA'S TOP BEAUTY BRANDS WERE HON­OURED AT THE MUCH-AN­TIC­I­PATED AN­NUAL MC PRIX D'EX­CEL­LENCE DE LA BEAUTE AWARDS

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - REPORT BACK -

ev­ery year, we gather to cel­e­brate the best beauty prod­ucts in the in­dus­try from skin care to make-up, as judged by our panel of top ed­i­tors and beauty ex­perts who try and test the sub­mis­sions. For our 2014 Prix d’Ex­cel­lence de la Beauté awards cer­e­mony, we headed down­town to the Can­teen @ Arts on Main, Jo’burg, who hosted us for the day. How did we cel­e­brate our win­ners? With bub­bly of course, and lots of it, thanks to JC Le Roux. A deca­dent af­ter­noon tea of oys­ters, straw­ber­ries dipped in choco­late, del­i­cate mac­a­roons and pe­tits fours was served, while beauty-in­dus­try in­sid­ers rep­re­sent­ing lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional brands, ed­i­tors and celebri­ties min­gled to the cool sounds of Shaun Ja­cobs. MC edi­tor As­pa­sia Kar­ras and beauty edi­tor Mathahle Stofile de­lighted in an­nounc­ing the well-de­served win­ners in our var­i­ous cat­e­gories. Guests were treated to a spe­cial gift bag in­clud­ing a charm­ing bracelet from A Ring To It and a pais­ley printed make-up bag from Oilily. A beau­ti­ful day shared with beau­ti­ful people.
