CEW Announces Its Winners: A Behind-The-Scenes Look & Giveaway
7 Start slideshow

I had the honor of presenting at the CEW Beauty Awards this year, the only awards program in our industry where the winners are decided exclusively by beauty industry professionals. Each year, the Cosmetic Executive Women members (who are obviously knowledgeable in beauty) select the winners in each category.

This year was the first year that the awards ceremony pushed for an online presence and asked online media and bloggers to present. Along with myself, eleven other amazing ladies got to announce the winners of the 29 product categories. We weren’t alone though — Mario Cantone, the hilarious actor known for his role as Charlotte’s best friend in Sex and the City was host of the show (bringing up sex numerous times, among other things…) and he helped us pay respect to the 146 finalists. As we watched the show from the stage (luckily decked out in hair and makeup by a team of CoverGirl artists) we live-tweeted our excitement over the results. Click through the slideshow above to see some of the tweets from backstage, and scroll through the list below of the winners.

Also, let me know which one of these products are your favorite and why in the comments section below for a chance to WIN the 2012 CEW Beauty Awards official gift bag, pictured below!

The presenters posing pretty in front of the step and repeat with Mario Cantone! I'm in the royal blue dress (it's Derek Lam on loan from my lovely friend Taylor Droddy, isn't it gorgeous?) and we all had hair and makeup done that morning courtesy of CoverGirl.

@DailyGlow's Liesa Goins made sure to take a shot of the empty room at the Waldorf Astoria before the craziness began..

@Lancomeparis' Eva Arnera poses with Mario Cantone after winning the Visionnaire Award.

@LizKaplow captured a picture of one of the many photographers catching us on the carpet. There was a lot of posing and smiling!

@nicolejparker got a great shot of Mario cracking everyone up, like usual!

I (@beautyhigh) made sure to grab some images with @thisthatbeauty and @fashionstbeauty while we were waiting for our mic test.

@thisthatbeauty and @onglamfashion had to capture their white trend backstage.
