The best beauty brands to look out for on your travels

AUSTRALIA 

Famous for their laid-back attitude, Australians’ beauty brands provide fuss-free, results-driven products.

Cult brand: Founded by twins Emily and Sarah Hamilton, when Sand & Sky launched in May this year, its entire stock sold out in eight weeks, creating a lengthy waiting list.

Sand & Sky’s must-try product is the Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask, £39.90 (sandandsky.com).

The 10-minute treatment contains Australian pink clay to combat damage done by free radicals, unclog pores and get skin glowing.

BRAZIL 

Some of the best bottoms in the world are to be found on the beaches of Brazil. So it should come as no surprise that Brazilians like to invest in skincare to preserve their shapely derrières.

Cult brand: Top of the list is Sol de Janeiro, which harnesses potent ingredients such as guarana and cacao from the Amazon to smooth skin. Rumour has it that supermodel Gisele is a fan which is more than enough reason to buy it.

Try the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, £44 (cult beauty.co.uk), a super-rich, sweet-smelling bodycream.

It contains the guarana plant, which has five times more caffeine than coffee, to perk up your posterior.

Perhaps the reason Hollywood stars look so good on the red carpet is down to the array of creative and high-spec beauty products available across the pond.

Cult brand: With 1.4 million Instagram followers, celebrity make-up artist Pat McGrath knows a thing or two about creating the perfect look.

Already huge in the US, her eponymous brand Pat McGrath Labs has just launched in the UK and is every bit worth the wait.

For the ultimate evening eye make-up, try Metalmorphosis 005 Kit in Gold, £55 (net-aporter.com), which contains two metallic eyeshadows, one cream, one pressed powder, as well as a mixing liquid and a dual-ended liner.

GERMANY 

Efficiency is key in Germany and their engineering is world-famous, so you should expect no less from the country’s most popular beauty products.

Cult brand: Founded in 1985, Artdeco creates make-up artist-worthy cosmetics at affordable prices. While some consumers are put off buying colour palettes in case some of the shades don’t suit them, the brand has a nifty solution: you can create your own.

Buy a magnetised make-up palette of your preferred size, such as the Empty Beauty Box Quattro, £4.99 (fragrancedirect.co.uk) and fill it with the eyeshadows, blushers and concealers of your choice.

JAPAN 

For high-tech, cutting-edge cosmetics, there are few places better than Japan.
