Beauty’s finest descended on the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge for the 13th annual Best Beauty Buys awards sponsored by John Lewis. From Best Tan to Best Lip Balm, InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys is the definitive list of tried and tested beauty products. Every year it's judged by the leaders of the beauty business – those make-up artists working magic on fashion shoots, the hairstylists who create fresh catwalk looks, the manicurists with the world of nail art at their fingertips and the skincare gurus nurturing the most immaculate A-list skin.
InStyle’s Publishing Director Rita Lewis opened the evening with an introduction, while InStyle Editor Eilidh MacAskill took to the stage to present the awards with the stunning Daisy Lowe.
Hitting the stage to collect their awards in the prestigious Hall of Fame category (which honours products which have won their category for three consecutive years) the big winners of the night were…
