Aussie Girls’ Beauty Secrets

  • Written by Scarlet Gratton


In a recent interview for the upcoming film I, Tonya, the makeup artists working with Aussie dream girl Margot Robbie revealed that in order to create the look of the ‘80s figure skating icon, they had a major hurdle when it came to  ‘downplaying Robbie's supernaturally glowing skin’. Oh, we do feel for poor Margot and her flawless complexion. Kidding aside, this stunning and talented woman is the embodiment of that classic and natural Australian glow that many Aussie girls can be proud of, so today is all about snatching up some of the beauty secrets in the effort to become ‘I, Aussie’.

Don’t you forget about me





Whatever your skincare routine is, if it’s short of a good broad-spectrum sunblock, you’re doing it wrong. While the girls from the land Down Under may appear like the chill sun-kissed goddesses that don’t have a care in the world, they don’t play around with sun protection. Winter, summer, those UVA and UVB rays never rest, so if you want to have the healthy and radiant skin flaunted by these girls, you will have to take some serious precautions. Slather broad spectrum SPF generously, even when you’re not hitting the beach, even when you’re wearing clothes that cover most of your skin. Don’t forget the face ever, and remember in great protection lies great beauty.

If I could turn back time





Protection on a regular basis is mandatory, and Australian girls hold natural skincare products in high regard. However, all the oils, (which you should use morning and night), amazing moisturizers and even sheet masks that these girls swear by, are sometimes not up to the task. So, what is?

These girls have found their ‘fine tuning’ Holy Grail in a great cosmetic skin clinic. Let’s face it, there are certain things even the finest products can’t do, and by not shying away from dermal fillers and other completely non-invasive treatments, they manage to stay ahead of the game and retain that youthful glow.

I have nothing to hide


When you have great treatments, amazing protection and hydration on your side, there is absolutely no need to hide. That is precisely why these women resort to very little makeup, and when you see them rocking the no-makeup makeup look, unlike most other women, there is actually little to no makeup involved. Concealer is mostly used to target blemishes not to cover your entire face with, and foundation is applied only when absolutely necessary. After all, why clog the pores and hide the natural radiance you’ve tried so hard to achieve?

I got it from my mama





When you think of a classic Australian beauty, the first thing that probably pops into your mind is that perfect figure that seems like it was carved out by Michelangelo. While genetics play a big part in creating the stunning bodies, there is some real (almost effortless) effort involved. Australians are known for their love of the outdoors, the nature and exploration of the great outdoors. The fresh air, the hour and sometimes day-long hikes definitely pay off, so if you aren’t an avid explorer, perhaps it’s time to reconsider your lifestyle. Another thing that enables them to stay in such great shape is one of their favorite activities – swimming, and while most of us weren’t blessed with being born within driving distance of Bondi beach, there are always pools you can visit and make swimming part of your regular routine. Not only is it wonderful for the body, but there are numerous health benefits to it, including stress reduction and better sleep. On top of spending quality time in the water, don’t forget to drink plenty of it, as hydration for Aussie girls doesn’t stop at topical solutions, and neither should it for you.

That gut feeling





The latest craze in skincare called drinkable skincare (that promotes the intake of such things as probiotics and drinkable collagen) has confirmed what we’ve suspected all along – that there is a strong connection between our gut and our complexion. So, aside from turning to superfoods that contain plenty of vitamins and serious doses of antioxidants, Australian gals are also firm believers in fermented foods. This is due to the fact that these foods are more easily digested and the nutrients from them more easily absorbed.

The fermentation process results in the creation of probiotics, which help secure a healthy gut and subsequently incredible skin, so you might want to start including these probiotic-rich foods into your diet ASAP.
