Beauty honours for leading figures

Two leading names from the world of international beauty are set to receive top honours at this year's Beauty Düsseldorf 2018, which takes place Friday 9th to Sunday 11th March.

Make-up artist, Jabe (pictured), will be presented with the prestigious ‘Golden Mask for Make-Up Art Award', which honours special creativity, technical expertise and dedication to enhancing the professional image of MUAs.

Born in Guadeloupe, Jabe boasts an impressive career within the global beauty and fashion industry. Having worked as a freelance make-up artist since 1998, Jabe's work has featured in various high-gloss publications, and he has collaborated with major designers such as Gucci, Dior and Louis Vuitton. Jabe also founded the international avant-garde title, OOB, which serves as a unique platform for make-up artists.

Alongside Jabe, Beauty Düsseldorf will present Franz Dannhauser with the ‘Life of Beauty Award', an honour given to personalities for their special merits in professional cosmetics and for being driving forces in the industry. Franz, who was the Managing Director at Thalgo, was chosen for his foresight, hard work and proactive dedication.
