Anjana Gosai, author of The Ultimate Guide to Beauty, has been named ‘Beauty Journalist of the Year’ at the 6th Annual Johnson & Johnson Beauty Journalism Awards.
Anjana won the prestigious prize – and a second award for Best Freelance Beauty Journalist – for her work in newspapers including the Daily Mail, Daily Express, The Mail on Sunday, The Sunday Times and magazines including Elle, Celebs on Sunday, Stylist and Asiana, for which she is their beauty editor.
Anjana, 32, lives in north London with her husband and their one year-old son says, “These awards are the equivalent of the Oscars to us beauty writers. I�۪ve been attending the event for the past three years and while I�۪ve been shortlisted many times, I�۪ve never won, so I�۪m over the moon! To be recognised amongst my peers, including beauty editors whose work I have admired for years and to have my work commended by top people in the industry makes me feel very humbled.”
Anjana’s first book, The Ultimate Guide to Beauty was published last year and has sold thousands of copies all over the world. The first ever beauty bible for South Asian women is a one-of-a-kind dressing table guide containing everything a girl needs to look and feel her best.
