    Get The Look: Gorgeous Cosmetics at Fashion Palette, New York Fashion Week

    "Bohemian Beauty- Sun-Kissed and Semi-Dewy"

    1. All looks started with a coat of First Base Foundation Primer to get a beautiful glow and increase the longevity of the product wear.

    2. After priming, we used a natural application of Base Perfect Liquid Foundation.

    3.  The skin was lightly powdered on the T-zone. A mixture of Prism Powder Highlighter and Shimmer Dust in Luminescence were applied on the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and on the cupid’s bow. Bronzer was applied to the perimeter of the face.

    4. Brown-hues of Colour Pro eye shadow in Fab and Fudge were applied as a liner on the top. On the bottom lash line, a shimmery gold or bronze shadow, such as Charity was used, depending on the depth of the model’s skin tone.

    5. Liquidlips in Red Sky was applied to the lips.

    6. Peaches & Cream Cheek Crème Blush was applied to the cheeks for a dewy, flushed pop of color.

  • Australia’s “Native Favourite" Beauty Brand Launches into SEPHORA Sydney

    Fans of Gorgeous Cosmetics will be excited to hear that Gorgeous has joined the Sephora Australia family.

    Celebrated cult-favourite makeup brand Gorgeous Cosmetics launched into Sephora’s flagship store in Sydney this month.  While Gorgeous Cosmetics has their own retail stores and is on the shelves of premium salons, spas and department stores around the world, their new partnership with Sephora is making this Melbourne heritage brand accessible to the masses and validating their position in the marketplace.

    Founder and CEO David McConnell, an Award-Winning Makeup Artist, started Gorgeous with the goal to create a makeup brand that was unlike anything Australia had seen. The color cosmetics line has earned acclaim for their advanced Complexion products, specifically Gorgeous Cosmetics Oil-Free Base Perfect Liquid Foundation, which the brand says is prepared to stand up to (and outperform) any import brand. 

    “I realized early on that what we’re offering is the best of the best and Australia has nothing like Gorgeous on the market. I truly believe that the moment a person touches Gorgeous, swatches a triple-milled Powder or feels and sees our Foundation on their skin—  it’s a beauty game-changer. That’s why we’ve retained loyal customers for nearly two decades— and that’s powerful."

    With a passionate focus on putting formula first, McConnell started Gorgeous Cosmetics in 1999 with one retail store on Melbourne’s fiercely-competitive Chapel Street. A growing demand for the reliability and quality of Gorgeous Cosmetics products has ushered the privately-owned and managed brand into the center of the global stage, with retailers reaching from Malibu to Malta, Berlin to Dubai.

     "I’m deeply honored to have customers be able to discover Gorgeous Cosmetics in a brick & mortar environment with the integrity and pedigree of Sephora. I know what we’re promising is real. I invite anyone with the goal of achieving flawless, perfect-looking skin to try Gorgeous Cosmetics."

    But it’s not just their base products that are shaking up the market. The brand’s innovative ‘Glamalash' Volumising Mascara has been selected as a SEPHORA Favourite.

    McConnell adds, “I think that Gorgeous’ world record-breaking sales the opening weekend at Sephora Australia are a pretty good indiction of what’s to come. We’re here to stay and I’m quite optimistic of our continued expansion bearing the new collection we’re unveiling in 2015."


    McConnell is an Award-Winning Makeup Artist who launched Gorgeous Cosmetics in Melbourne, Australia in 1999. McConnell is an Award-Winning Makeup Artist who launched Gorgeous Cosmetics in Melbourne, Australia in 1999.

    In a move to signal just how far the Australian salon brand has come since its launch a decade ago, Gorgeous Cosmetics has announced it will be expanding in the U.S market, signing a record-breaking contract with Californian chain, Planet Beauty, that will see the Melbourne-founded brand stocked in 14 locations across California.

    The mass roll out, to be completed in one quarter, is the first launch of it’s kind for Planet Beauty, says operations manager/buyer, Veronica Canello.

    “Bringing Gorgeous Cosmetics has been an exciting endeavour for the Southern California boutique and has helped drive business into the stores with the help of social media and makeover events.”

    As a new-to-U.S. brand, to team up with a retailer of caliber of Planet Beauty is a success story we’re excited to build upon as Gorgeous gains new loyalists across the globe.

    The growth is something the Melbourne-based business is poised for, having recently opened the doors of their second corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California led by a team of sales, social media, graphic design, product development, warehouse, operations and resident professional artists, including celebrity makeup artist and Gorgeous Cosmetics director of pro artistry, Cory Bishop.

    “Since the launch, Gorgeous Cosmetics and Planet Beauty have worked diligently together, holding cosmetic events with Cory Bishop and some of Planet Beauty’s most talented makeup artists,” says Canello.

    A win for the brand’s global strategy, the contract is expected to strengthen its name in the U.S professional beauty market, according to Gorgeous Cosmetics founder and CEO, David McConnell.

    “Our US Team’s extensive experience will help catapult Gorgeous Cosmetics’ development into a global leader. The large-scale launch with Planet Beauty is a win-win for us, and the type of partnership critical to our global strategy,”

    “As a new-to-U.S. brand, to team up with a retailer of caliber of Planet Beauty is a success story we’re excited to build upon as Gorgeous gains new loyalists across the globe.”
