Introducing the All4Women Beauty Awards 2019, where our beauty team shares their picks of the best hair, make-up and skin products for 2019. These are products that our beauty team swears by because they use them almost every day (and choose to buy them).
We’ve covered all things beauty from makeup to skincare as well as hair. These products range from budget beauty favourites to items that are worth the splurge. We’ve also included some of our favourite beauty tips.
Be sure to check back often as we’ll be updating this page regularly with our fab finds.

Meet the judges
Sasha is the editor of All4Women and writes about the beauty brands that land on her desk (especially those that make her look younger). She loves beauty products that save time and really deliver on their promises and is a fan of make-up that looks as natural as possible – although she does have fun experimenting with hair and lash extensions… all in the name of work of course!
Zethu: I value comfort over trends. A bargain-hunter at heart always looking to get more bang for my buck. A mom.
Lumka is a copywriter and future author from Durban who has written fashion and beauty for All4women since 2013. On a perfect day, you can find Lumka sitting at a coffee shop, laptop in front of her and browsing social media for the latest in pop culture, fashion, beauty, football and social issues. If you want to make Lumka smile, show her dogs and babies. If you want the opposite, don’t use emojis when texting. When she isn’t working, Lumka is completing her Media honours through UNISA.
Lara is the Parenting & Relationships editor, features writer & photographer. Lover of light. Down to earth with a dash of sass.
Andile is a fashion writer for All4Women and has a passion for fashion and good food. She loves reading, watching movies, listening to music and is a mother of one. Her favourite moments are spending time with family and friends and travelling.
Tamlyn is a freelance writer, make-up hoarder and bubbly lover who loves to travel, is obsessed with her little family and wouldn’t be caught dead without dry shampoo.
Claire is one of our senior digital editors. She doesn’t like to spend too much money on beauty products (or anything really), and she hates wasting time on her hair, skincare or make-up routine. She’s the wrong person to ask for advice on the latest contouring technique, but if you’re looking for an honest opinion on a budget-friendly product, she’s your woman.
Chantelle: I’ve been in the beauty industry for 18 years now, and it’s been my pleasure to have seen, tried and done most of what’s out there. I currently work as a marketing & PR consultant in the health & beauty industry.
Jade works on All4Women as a digital strategist but that doesn’t stop her from her writing and sharing her opinions. While she is no beauty guru, she likes products that do what they say do, are easy to use, practical and worth their price tag.
