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 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.
Twenty-five years of scientific success has led to uncompromising quality and luxurious skincare products that are to die for. Dr Lewinn's raises the bar when it comes to customer experience and understanding the beauty and anti-ageing skincare science of its Australian audience.
If you’re going to trust anyone with your skin health, you might as well trust one of the most highly respected leading dermalsurgeons in the business.

Working alongside television actors and renowned skincare specialists, unique and technologically advanced formulations are always the basis of Dr Lewinn's products.
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.
The relatively young skincare company, Nu'trir is just as mystical and magical as it sounds. Its brand name means 'to feed and to nourish', and it follows this through like a mantra.
With affordable prices attached to their name, Nu'trir offers effective and more naturally-derived alternatives for Aussie women to possess brighter and healthier looking skin.
So why do we love them? With every hydrating cleansing masque and collagen boosting peptide serum, you're guaranteed only the finest and enriching native ingredients this brand has to offer. No more of those artificial nasties on your skin!
