The grand finale of the beauty festival was concluded with the announcement of Vogue Beauty Festival 2022 Winners, selected by the jury and voted for by Vogue India’s readers.
#VBF22 is different from its predecessors in more ways than one. Previously, the audience would vote alongside the jury, and voila! we would find ourselves a winner. This time, however, our selections are quite different. Instead of handing an extensive list of nominations, our jury of expert panellists made an unbiased selection of the top 5 in each category. They swatched, swiped, tested, buffed, blended, and spritz each and every product to ensure that the right decision was made. And then the floor was opened up to our audience, where they took their pick from the expert selects, voted for the best, and made their favourite go-to products win.
