Originally published on | June 12

The drums have rolled, the trumpets have sounded and the results are in. 2024’s beauty greats have just been announced – but with 23 products on the list, the real question is, where to start?

When it comes to deciding which of the MECCA Beauty Election winners you should add to your bag first (because let’s be honest, you’ll definitely want to try more than one), we recommend looking at what you already have – and love – as well as the winning products with the power to elevate them.

These 15 product duos – in celebration of 15 years of the MECCA Beauty Election – will take your beauty to the next level.

If you have: Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream
You’ll love: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter (The Instant Glow-Up Winner)
On a never-ending quest for the dewiest skin possible? Double down on the effect by layering Tatcha’s moisturiser with the iconic ‘filter in a bottle’. Charlotte Tilbury’s first-of-its-kind formula does it all: smoothing, blurring and illuminating to make your skin look its absolute best.

If you have: Dyson Supersonic Nural™ Intelligent Hair Dryer
You'll love: Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil (The Hair High Achiever Winner)
Dyson’s new blow-dryer features smart tech that protects your hair from damage and smooths flyaways – and for even silkier, shinier results, add Gisou’s oil post-drying. This honey-infused blend will treat and strengthen your strands, while leaving a delicate trail of scent.

If you have: Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara
You'll love: Tatcha The Indigo Cleansing Balm (The Cleanser That Cleans Up Winner)
Die-hard waterproof mascara fans, consider this your sign to try a cleansing balm. Not only will this formula swipe away even the most long-wearing makeup with ease, it does it without irritating or stripping away moisture.

If you have: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
You'll love: Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Firmeza Oil (Your Everything in the Shower Winner)
This weightless oil features the same delicious scent as the original cream, but absorbs even faster! Our tip: layer both for your softest, smoothest skin yet (ideal if your body leans on the extra-dry side of things) and to make that irresistible fragrance last even longer…

If you have: Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 EDP
You'll love: Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream (The VIP of Me-Time Winner)
If only the best will do in your scent wardrobe, it’s safe to assume the same goes for your skincare routine. Augustinus Bader’s formula is the true cream of the crop, backed by 30 years of stem cell science and adored by everyone from Beyoncé to Margot Robbie. The secret? The brand’s patented TFC8® complex, with unmatched plumping and hydrating abilities.

If you have: Diptyque Philosykos EDT
You'll love: Diptyque Figuier Candle (The Home Scent That Stays With You Winner)
Fig lovers, unite! There’s something intoxicating about the image of sitting under a fig tree, somewhere in the Mediterranean – the common note between Diptyque’s beloved EDT and this leafy green candle.

If you have: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 68 Perfume Mist
You'll love: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner (The Top Trending Find Winner)
For those familiar with #BeautyTok, this pairing will make perfect sense. Everyone is obsessed with the sweet, fruity notes of Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian-inspired mist, and Glow Recipe brings the same joy to your skincare routine. But this toner isn’t just about the juicy watermelon scent – its powerful blend of BHAs and PHAs gently exfoliates and hydrates, delivering noticeably smoother, bouncier skin.

If you have: Been searching for the perfect SPF...
You'll love: MECCA COSMETICA To Save Face SPF50+ Brightening Sun Serum (The One for the Sun Winner)
We’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times – everyone needs to be using sunscreen, every single day. Lucky for you, this winning formula makes it a breeze: lightweight, dewy and packed with skincare ingredients, this is one SPF you’ll actually want to apply.

ALWAYS READ THE LABEL AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE. Sunscreen is only one form of sun protection. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and reapply as directed.
