BEST Makeup Products from Aussie “Drugstore” for Beginners

Cheap makeup lovers of Australia, I GOT YOU!

Ever tried searching for the best makeup products for beginners, and most of the products you found online were online easily/cheaply available in the US? New-to-makeup-MEL had that same problem, so here’s my pick of the best makeup products that are great for beginners (the cheap and available in Australia version)! I want to help you avoid all the makeup mishaps I went through. It not only cost me a  lot of money, but a lot of trouble too. I thought I HAD to have EXACTLY the products all those beauty gurus talked about, and wasted a lot of money. There are just as good products available in the lovely land down under.


This is one of my first YouTube video, so please be nice! I just wanted to share all my lovely makeup finds with you. My current favourite of the bunch mentioned, would probably be the Australis Translucent powder, available here.

    I love that Maybelline Age Rewind concealer too. I still need to check out that Chi Chi classics palette, I keep forgetting about it! 🙂

        I feel that it does have that “blurring” effect, more so than my bobbi brown finishing powder. I usually dislike loose powders and who knows what sort of talc and nasties I’m breathing in when powdering my nose, zero powder is all natural so i don’t need to hold my breath anymore haha!
