The O-Wards are here! Here's everything you need to know. 


The Oprah Beauty Awards (aptly nicknamed the O-Wards) are officially in for fall 2017, and we’re pleasantly not-so-surprised by the results. Featuring over 70 different popular beauty products ranging from the most effective face cleansers and night treatments to the most flattering foundations and concealers, the comprehensive guide is certainly helpful. But to make things even easier, many of the winners are divided into the best products for every skin tone and hair texture.

Foundation is arguably one of the most difficult products to get right, especially when it comes to different skin tones. And Dermablend Flawless Creator in 90N — a super concentrated pigment drop formula — won the award for best foundation for dark skin. It can easily be mixed into your favorite face cream or moisturizer, or you can use it alone for maximum coverage. (CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir in Golden Tan won for medium skin, and Revlon Youth FX Fill+Blur Foundation in Porcelain won for fair.)

And we can’t help mention some of our current summer beauty staples that are also included in rankings, like the Maybelline New York The City Mini Palette in Chill Brunch Neutrals as shadow for fair skin, L'Oréal Infallible Lip Paint in Liquid Venom as lip color for Dark Skin and Essie’s Gel Couture Gala in Front Page Worthy as nail color for Medium Skin.  

Which of these top-rated products have you already added to your makeup hoard? Let us know in the comments below.
