CEW Announces 2021 Beauty Creators Awards Winners

In a webinar hosted by Julia and Batsheva Haart, the organization announced the winners across its 30 categories.

After a roller-coaster year of changing consumer habits, CEW announced its final tally of the year’s best product offerings.

CEW announced the winners of its recently rebranded Beauty Creators Awards via webinar on Wednesday, with categories including iconic beauty products, CBD beauty and sexual wellness. The event was hosted by “My Unorthodox Life” stars Julia and Batsheva Haart.

The professional organization announced finalists in July in a webinar hosted by Brooke Shields. At the time, CEW president Carlotta Jacobson said in an interview that she had renamed the awards in an effort to highlight the figures behind the industry’s most innovative products. They had also combined mass and prestige awards, bringing the category count down from 46 to 30.

Below, the CEW 2021 Beauty Creators Awards winners:
