Best Skincare, Makeup & Haircare Products 2019

Here at Zula, we’re often inundated by the number of new beauty drops every week. It’s tough to decipher which products are bang for our buck, which is why we’ve decided to start our annual Beauty Awards.

For our first edition of Beauty Awards, we focused on skincare, makeup and haircare items launched or reformulated in the past year, so you can update your collection with top-rated formulas from both beloved and newly-discovered brands.

To help us sift through the 203 product nominees, we assembled a panel of judges: Social media influencer Chevonne Cheng, Zula’s Video Producer Cheryl Chiew, makeup artist Dollei Seah, hair and makeup artist Christian Maranion, and makeup artist Cheryl Ow.
