CEW Announces 2022 Beauty Creators Award Winners

At a ceremony hosted by Cheddar News' Hena Doba at Ziegfeld Ballroom, CEW announced winners across 33 categories, including a first-time Influencer of the Year Award.

Returning in-person for the first time since 2019, the 2022 CEW Beauty Creators Awards honored innovators and changemakers from all corners of the industry.

Hosted by Cheddar News’ anchor and host Hena Doba at New York City’s Ziegfeld Ballroom, the 29th annual ceremony unveiled winners across 33 categories, including men’s grooming, CBD beauty, sustainability and a first-time influencer category.

Another first for the organization, this year CEW asked consumers to weigh in on the Launch of the Year, Retailer of the Year and Influencer of the Year awards.

“Today, the beauty consumer has evolved, with an unending thirst for the backstory behind the products they are buying,” said CEW president Carlotta Jacobson. “This year’s winners reflect the way consumers are making purchase decisions, and what they care about.”
