With so many beauty products in the market today, finding your HG (Holy Grail) may seem like a daunting task. That’s why Cosmo has done all the testing for you—from skincare to haircare and makeup—to find which ones are worthy of a spot in your kikay kit and a place in the 2017 Cosmo Beauty Awards list. This year’s much anticipated Cosmo Beauty Block was held at SM Megamall Mega Atrium on September 2, 2017, where Cosmo Girls and their squads tried and shopped the latest products, copped the hottest looks at the sponsors’ booths, and learned about the latest trends from the Cosmo Beauty Council.

“The Cosmo Beauty Block is our way of geeking out on makeup, skincare, and haircare with our fellow Cosmo Girls and beauty junkies,” said Marla Miniano, Cosmopolitan Magazine’s editor-in-chief.

Cosmo Girls were all ears when Cosmo’s Beauty Council shared their beauty secrets and revealed the ins and outs of the beauty industry through their fun, informative talks. Beauty and fashion photographer Shaira Luna taught the attendees how to take that perfect beauty selfie with the right angle and lighting tricks. Tokyo Posh owner Denise Aquino inspired the crowd with how she designed her products and made them a crowd favorite. Celebrity makeup artist Nikki Duque gave tips on how women can build their makeup arsenal as beginners and even as pros. Social media influencer and Myx VJ Debbie Then shared her morning routine and why skincare is so important at the end of the day.

This year’s Cosmo Beauty Block is brought to you by co-presenter Pantene, gold sponsors Revlon, BYS, Aveeno, Ever Bilena, and Skin White. Special thanks to our wellness partners Beauty and Butter and Tokyo Posh and the following brands: Banila Co., Sleek, Happy Skin and Coach.
