Professional Hair And Makeup Artists Share Their Favourite Beauty Brands

When it comes to the products our professional hair and makeup artists have on their own bathroom shelves, we’re happy to share our secrets for beautiful hair, makeup and skin. These are the beauty brands we couldn’t live without.


It Cosmetics

IT Cosmetics rose to fame when ‘it’ girls everywhere discovered their incredible Your Skin But Better CC Cream Foundation. This foundation is so good, it’s sold out pretty much everywhere that stocks it.

But luckily for us, IT Cosmetics has a treasure trove of other great beauty buys that are as kind to your skin as they are to your makeup look. This makeup line was founded by a rosacea-sufferer, who after years of looking for makeup products that didn’t upset her skin (and actually made it look good!), decided to create her dream makeup products herself. We’re glad she did, because these makeup products are amongst the highest quality we’ve seen for their reasonable price range.

Other bestsellers to get your hands on include the Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder and Vitality Lip Flush Stain.


Modelrock Lashes

We’ve all used our fair share of false eyelashes that really missed the mark, but those days are behind us since we discovered Modelrock Lashes. This 100% vegan line of faux quality lashes offers a cruelty-free option without compromising on quality. And unlike most brands of falsies,  Modelrock Lashes are handmade by specialist lash artisans, so they look much more natural than mass-produced alternatives.

Our hair and makeup artists love these faux eyelashes so much, we wrote a whole article on why we love Modelrock. There, you’ll find tips and tricks on finding the right false eyelashes for your eye shape, and how to apply them properly.


MAC Cosmetics

Loved by ladies all over the world, MAC Cosmetics will always hold a special place in our hearts for their ability to produce consistently brilliant makeup products. If you’re new to MAC Cosmetics, check out the new MAC sample shelves at Mecca Maxima (they look a bit like a vending machine) to try out MAC’s bestsellers in small and affordable sizes. This is a great way to find the products you’ll love without breaking the bank.

With the colder seasons approaching, chapped lips are on their way too. But the nourishing lip balms from Lanolips are here to offer a strong defence. Arm yourself with a few of their multi award winning, pure lanolin 101 Ointment Multi-Purpose Balm to keep dry lips at bay. This stuff is so good, we’d suggesting keeping one in our handbag, bathroom, car and anywhere else you can think of!



Now that we’ve covered our favourite makeup brands, it’s time to share the brand that keeps our hair in check. The Australian haircare brand Nak is backed by hairdressers across the country, and for good reason. They have a diverse range of products that harness powerful natural ingredients like nourishing apricot kernel oil, and strengthening bio-marine complex.

We’ve put together an article on the Nak haircare products you should be using, depending on your hair type. Head there for a complete list of our Nak favourites.
