Like everything else on your Insta feed, the beauty world is crowded. We feel the hype, the buzz, the excitement. Whether it’s a new brand being launched or another badass collection being released, how do you know what brand to purchase from? Do you rummaged through reviews, or trust your favourite influencer? Let’s chat about something new and different. We’ve found 5 Australian beauty brands worth supporting in 2018, and onwards, of course.
Glimmer & Glow Mirrors
Shine bright like a diamond. Glimmer & Glow are lighting up bedrooms and beauty rooms all over Australia. Glimmer & Glow Mirrors are based in Brisbane and offer the most stunning beauty mirrors around (yes, like the one all over Insta). The quality of their mirrors is like no other, and boy do they scream luxury. Our bet; these mirrors will be a common find in homes everywhere very soon. Watch this space, we sense new designs and innovations from this brand. Pssst. They also have afterpay (yesss!).
Cleaner beauty all the way. Remember the name; Generics. In 2007 they launched in Perth initially as an urban accessories brand and eventually popping up all over Perth as art installations, showcasing the creations. Their focus turned to organic, more natural plant-based products, the kinda stuff that’s good for you. Generics are now a one-stop shop for natural living and wellness products. The store has an apothecary lab, industrial vibe, which we think is super cool. Generic’s reputation is the trend setting, clean living store in Perth. If you haven’t already – hit the link below to check out their killer online store.
The Cosmetic Box
Home is where the makeup is. And it likes to take over. Foundation, lipstick and mascara rolls around freely. Taking over your bathroom, cupboard space and vanity draws. Cosmetic storage is a serious issue. The Cosmetic Box is a brand you need to visit ASAP. They understand your problems and have the cutest solution. The founder started the business as a hobby, designing and organising makeup spaces to ensure efficiency and style. Innovative yet classic. The Cosmetic Box is a brand that truly cares about you, your makeup and all things beauty.
Yes to mineral makeup. Tuya Cosmetics are an Australian mineral makeup business that started researching and planning products for over 5 years (now that’s dedication). The owners are passionate and committed to make a difference in the beauty world by creating natural mineral makeup, with the customers in mind. From lip gloss to eyeliners. Tuya Cosmetic have a stunning versatile range for those who want gentle make up that’s good for the skin.
Started from the bottom now we’re here. Launched in early 2000, Adore Beauty was the very first online beauty store in Australia. Kate Morris; the founder, opened the store in her garage in Melbourne with the support of 2 local beauty brands and a $12000 loan from her boyfriends’ parents (gotta love the inlaws). Fast forward to 2017. Adore Beauty now have over 13000 products available, including high-end brands, professional salon brands and even hard to find cult brands (they even have MAC!). Adore Beauty sure have made a mark as Australia’s online beauty store. And hey, each order even comes with one delicious chocolatey Tim Tam. I’ll be going back for more.
The online shopping world is jam-packed and there are 100’s/1000’s of smaller businesses and brands doing amazing things. Sometimes they just get lost in the crowd. Thanks for taking the time to read this article and please share, and or subscribe to our mailing list, if not already.
