'Let us all rejoice - Australia has world-class skincare, make-up and hair products perfectly suited to our harsh climate - you just need to know where to look
Don't get us wrong - we love a direct-from-Paris, cult-status beauty buy as much as the next Avène-spritzing Sisley devotee. But when we can get the goods here, minus the shipping costs and plus the feel-good factor that comes from supporting local business, we're all in.
No-one else knows the vital importance of SPF and a good (faux) tan like an Aussie does, let alone the difficulty of maintaining hydrated (but never oily) skin and hair in our sunburnt country. So, who better to rely on for a climate-ready beauty routine than our fellow countrymen? Above you'll find the Buro edit of buys from the best Australian beauty brands - and given what day we just celebrated, there's never been a better excuse to shop the lot.'
