5 rules Aussie girls swear by

September 17, 2019

Aussie girls gleam a certain healthy, effortless vibe. Stunning, yet simple. Bronzed, yet basic. The glow of year-round sunshine, the waves of endless beaches. 

Well, at least that’s what they’d have you believe. The truth is this effortlessly chic look transcends seasons, trends and even generations. It’s a lifestyle and one that will have you gleaming on even the most wintery of days.

So, here are five basic beauty hacks from our sisters down under that will not only have you radiating all-year-round but save your time, money and health as well. 

1.   Minimal over made-up
No one masters minimal make-up quite like the Aussies. They let their natural lustre do the hard yakka. Using minimal foundation and concealer, they lean on dewy bronzers for a burnished, bronzed glow without the sun.

2.   Nature has the answer
Aussies have a deep appreciation for the great outdoors and the power of nature. So, it’s no surprise natural beauty products are an Aussie girl’s default. Take Australia’s Kakadu Plum, for example. It has the highest concentration of Vitamin C in the world; 100 times more than an orange! Chemical free and far superior to anything manmade.

3.   Mess is best
Tousled beach waves is an Aussie style that will last the ages. Styled, blown-out hair looks like you’ve tried too hard – the antithesis of what Aussie beauty is all about. The more effortless and natural you look, the sexier you are by Aussie standards.

4.   Tans fade, but sun damage lasts forever
Australia holds the unenviable title of skin cancer capital of the world. That glowing fireball in the sky is extremely damaging to your skin, causing it to darken, pigment and lose its suppleness. That’s why sun protection always takes centre stage in any good beauty routine, with strong SPF a must no matter how overcast the day.

5.   Fewer, quality products
Aussies have too much to enjoy around them to waste time on cumbersome beauty regimes. A few quality, hard-working products always trump a cabinet of unused crap. Multi-purpose over multi-cost. Additional skincare benefits over additional time wasted.
