Jury members included National Society of Cosmetic Chemists president Tatiana Puchkova, medical doctor, professor and director of the Professor Yutskovskaya chain of clinics in Moscow and Vladivostok Yana Yutskovskaya, Moscow Hairdressing Academy and London’s Vidal Sassoon Academy graduate Natalia Kovalenkova, Domashny Ochag magazine Editor-in-Chief Maria Vinogradova and Beauty Section director Yekaterina Sakharova, the Ochag editorial board and readers who voted on the publication’s website for the best products.
Master of Ceremonies Andrei Frolov and DJ Tasker kept guests in a festive mood, and representatives of Russian beauty industry companies and popular beauty bloggers attended the lunch along with famous Russian actress and special guest Viktoria Isakova.
