For the past eight years, the CEW France network has been rewarding professionals in the beauty sector at the Achiever Awards. An opportunity to salute the careers of established creators or to encourage the initiatives of new cosmetic talents. This ceremony was held in Paris, at Le Faust, on 14 October 2019.
The cosmetics industry is more than competitive. But CEW France’s ambition is to make people forget this competition, to bring together all the players in the beauty industry, to unite them and allow them to share their experiences for an evening.
Nine prizes were awarded, here are the winners.
