Why shop for international cosmetic brands when you get a taste of Australia's best and most beloved beauty products? Discover our top favourite Aussie brands we love and why you need them in your life!


With all the existing beauty brands, skincare goods and best-selling makeup in the world, it's easy to forget that Australia is full of homegrown cosmetics and skincare heroes.

If you think about it carefully, we could be at the very top of the beauty and beauty development ladder. We're a country that makes use of the best botanically diverse ingredients, but we do so in the harshest environments ever! Also, Australian brands and beauty products are specially formulated to suit our sunny lifestyle and specific skincare needs.

So, why turn to an international cosmetics company when we have so many homegrown picks to choose? Plus, you're supporting a local business!



Here are some of our Aussie faves!


BYS Cosmetics


BYS Cosmetics has always been a cult-favourite at Cosmetic Capital. If you're after versatility and high-impact colour, well you've got it!

This fast-growing makeup hero entirely focuses on creating affordable and enticing cosmetic products that deliver long-lasting colour, keeps up with the hottest colour trends, while encouraging Aussie gals to be self-expressive through their makeup as they enjoy their contemporary lifestyle.

Better still, all BYS products are 100% against animal testing, and PETA certified.



Bondi Sands


The Australian summer, and by extension, the beautiful bronze glow of the Aussie tan, is the envy of the globe.

And thanks to Bondi Sands, you can capture that homegrown tan no matter what season we're in.

Featuring fast and effective self tan products, including mitts and back applicators, Bondi Sands has made a name for themselves by bringing Bondi Beach to the world.

Bondi Sands also offers scrubs, sunscreens, lip balms and self tan removers. You're always in the mood for summer with Bondi Sands around.





It's hard not to miss the bright fuchsia pink packaging of a ModelCo mascara or lipstick.

This brand has made a name for itself for delivering versatile, top quality cosmetic goods that are great for quick makeup fixes, at an affordable price.

ModelCo was the brand that created the concept of the 'Tan in a Can', and developed the very first aerosol self-tanner. No more costly sessions at the tanning salon!

Why do we love ModelCo? It's because this brand understands the unique beauty requirements of the modern Australian woman.





Australia's favourite natural skincare brand, Sukin, is dedicated to providing products that are as good for you as they are for the environment.

Affordable, ethical and environmental, Sukin follows a strict 'No' list that keeps out irritants, toxins and other nasties. Instead, they source ingredients that your skin and hair will love.

CCF certified cruelty-free and 100% vegan, Sukin stand by the animals and ensure that no animal testing takes place at any stage of the production and testing process.

They also do their part in protecting and preserving Mother Earth by implementing grey water-safe biodegradable formulas, utilising recyclable BPA free PET plastic and maintaining themselves as a carbon neutral brand in all aspects.



Nude By Nature


How can we not give a shout out to Australia's Number 1 leading mineral makeup brand, Nude By Nature?

This top-notch Aussie brand commits themselves to deliver only the best mineral-based makeup with naturally sourced ingredients that come straight from the Australian environment.

100% cruelty-free and PETA certified (yay to the bunny rabbits!), their forward-thinking formulas boast skin-renewing ingredients from nourishing essential oils such as Avocado Oil, smoothing Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, as well as native Lilly Pilly, Quandong, Kakadu Plum, Macadamia Oil and Cehami.
