Get patriotic and get a load of these little beauties; we guarantee you’ll be overwhelmed with the urge to shop local. Even our national anthem knows where it’s at: our land abounds in nature’s gifts of beauty rich and rare, so check out the brands that really are advanced Australian fare.
When you want to tame your tresses, you NEED this salon-only hair care brand in your arsenal. It has NO parabens, sulphates or sodium chlorides that can damage your hair. If you haven’t tried, you need to, like, now.
When people talk Aussie brands, Grown Alchemist is always high on the list. Their serums, cleansers and moisturisers feel luxurious without carrying the luxury price tag.
No handbag or cosmetic purse in the country is complete without Jurlique’s cult-hit rosewater mist. We love this brand because they’re all about creating beautiful products from nature.
Forget lamingtons; get your beauty fix from marshmallows this Australia Day! We love MOR’s Marshmallow range because it not only smells good enough to eat, it also gives an excellent moisture kick to the skin without clogging pores. And the Bath Elixer? DELICIOUS!
We LOVE Becca. Their bag is about taking what your mama gave you and making it shine. Rather than a fake made-up look, Becca is all about creating a natural, pared back look. And we hear their highlighters are AMAZING.
This is beauty good enough to eat. Literally. All the ingredients here are safe for ingestion (but we think they’d probably work better on your skin). Edible Beauty is not only free from chemicals, they’re also focused on plant-based vegan products that are ethically sourced and cruelty free, and that’s a win in our books.
This Aussie beauty has an international cult following. Their hit product isn’t called Liquid Gold for nothing: it’s known to improve your skin quality quick-smart!
Bow down to your new lippy queen! Poppy King has been a big name on every beauty lover’s lips for a while and her Lipstick Queen brand delivers high-pigment, long-lasting lip colour.
You know the stores, both Cosmetica and Maxima, but do you know the brand? Mecca Cosmetica’s marketing declares it’s “made by the beauty obsessed for the beauty aficionado”, and we can tell a lot of love and expertise is poured into this local formula.
This one is a cosmedical brand you’ve probably seen in various salons and skin clinics. As their branding says, it’s for those serious about skincare. Their products are backed by science to deliver high-grade results, without a high-grade price. We’ve heard the Rejuvenate 15 corrective serum is fab.
Aussie-owned and loved worldwide, Kit Cosmetics has been in makeup bags for years. We love how trend-focused they are, while still staying true to the basics that EVERY kit needs.
Who wants false lashes without the gluey, icky mess of putting on falsies? We do! Cherry Blooms is a Brisbane-based label dedicated to lengthening our lashes using clever little fibres. And they’re the only fibre lash brand to have EVER been included in the VIP Gift Bags for the OSCARS so you know they’re celebrity-approved.
