This season's beauty awards will highlight some of the best summer beauty products on the market. Whether it is self-tanner, waterproof makeup, sea salt spray or the best nail color, we will help you decide which products are worth your money.

Although we would love to try out every new product ourselves, we've asked some of our Lifestyle Collective bloggers to step in and help us out! They will be reviewing more than 100 great products and sharing their favorites.

Before we roll out the product winners over the next couple of weeks, meet the bloggers who will be playing judge. Coming from a variety of backgrounds and geographical locations, they've all got one thing in common: a passion for beauty! Check out the Beauty Awards page over the next few weeks for product reviews and rankings!
