Support local and get your glam on with these affordable Australian beauty brands

We know beauty Down Under.

As much as we love treating ourselves to new beauty products and trying out the millions of brands that pop up across the globe, trying out homegrown makeup brands really gets our Aussie spirit going. 

Australian makeup has long been ahead of the game when it comes to global beauty trends, and Aussies have long been the champions of clean beauty products, natural skin and bronzy ‘lit from within glow’ look. We’re known for our love of low-maintenance, sustainably sourced, easy-to-do beauty routines and our brands reflect that. 

Supporting homegrown businesses and trying out the innovative new beauty brands coming out of Australia is a great way to try your hand at brands you’ve never heard of and level up your beauty routine. 

Because we are such fans of Australian beauty, we are taking a look at some of our favourites below. We hope you’ll love them just as much as we do!
