Redbook Pays Tribute To The Simple Joys Of Beauty

RBK Dec NS.jpgThis morning, we were lucky enough to attend the sixth annual Redbook MVP Beauty Awards breakfast, possibly the one day a year where fully made-up women gather at 8 a.m. to celebrate beauty products and score a very impressive swag bag.

Redbook publisher Mary Morgan and editor-in-chief Stacy Morrison were on hand to welcome guests, which included reps from all of the beauty product makers who received awards, from Cover Girl to Avon to Sally Hansen and perfumier Coty. The awards themselves, announced by beauty director Cheryl Kramer Kaye and beauty editor Krista Bennett DeMaio, highlighted “life’s little luxuries,” or small comforts that women find in pampering themselves, even in the midst of a recession. And they’re right: don’t underestimate the power that a $7 lipstick has to lift your mood.

After the jump, some photos of today’s breakfast event
