PARENTS Reveals Winners of Beauty Awards 2021
From the Best Tinted Moisturizer to the Best Curl Enhancer, This List of Must-Haves Will Help You Look and Feel Your Best in the Months Ahead

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Meredith Corporation's (NYSE: MDP) PARENTS released this year's Beauty Awards, a selection of new makeup, hair, and skin launches that are effective, efficient, and inclusive. PARENTS' Beauty Awards 2021 is available on and in the September issue of PARENTS magazine, available now.

"For the 10th annual Beauty Awards, PARENTS consulted moms and, for the first time, dads, to judge the best new offerings in beauty and self-care. After many months at home, parents are eager to step out feeling fresh and put together—and the winning products all help with that effort," said PARENTS Editor-in-Chief Julia Edelstein.

This year 35 moms and a handful of dads tested 160 new makeup, hair, and skin launches to select a total of 33 products that passed a set of standards for quality, ease of use, and inclusivity. Foundations had to come in at least 30 shades, and tinted moisturizers in 10. All our skin and hair winners received approval from parents whose skin types and hair textures matched those of the products' intended consumers.
