Introducing The Best in Beauty: Our Irish Tatler Beauty Awards 2019

Raising a glass (of water... hydration is key, you know!) to the smartest skincare products around.

Beauty is never one-size-fits-all, but this list is as about as universal as it gets.

To coincide with the August issue of Irish Tatler magazine, aka 'The Bumper Beauty Special' we decided to do a conclusive round-up of the products we can't stop using or recommending this year, regardless of who's asking.

Beauty in 2019 is no longer business as usual — and that’s inarguably a good thing. In the last year or so, we've seen rules smashed, voices raised and stereotypes questioned, marking a major and much-welcomed shift in how beauty is perceived and practised right now.

Makeup that's about freedom and expression and skincare that's a true form of self-care rather than a seven-step time suck, we're moving past the notion that the term 'beauty' has to represent one set of specific, unachievable ideals. 

To highlight that progress, and help you find what’s really worth your time and money, we funnelled the thousands of newly released products to bring you a 90-strong list of the absolute best, across skin, makeup, hair, body and tools. 

In this post, we'll be listing the winners across the skincare category, but stay tuned to Irish over the coming days, as we'll be announcing the rest. 

So, without further adieu, let's raise a glass (of water... hydration is key, you know!) to the smartest skincare products around.
