The Top Shelf: Chloe Morello
Including a cheek product that’s almost too pretty to use

Name a more iconic Australian beauty vlogger than Chloe Morello… I’ll wait. With over 2.6 million YouTube subscribers and 1.1 followers on Instagram, Chloe is a social media star that has captured the hearts (and eyes!) of beauty buffs globally, and it’s easy to see why: her YouTube channel shines with personality and her makeup tutorials are really easy to follow.
She’s also recently relocated, which she spoke to us about in an exclusive interview. “Right now, my husband and I are setting up our house in Los Angeles,” says Chloe. “It’s keeping us very busy while still creating content for our jobs on YouTube and Instagram.” But don’t think that you’ll miss out on seeing Chloe just because she’s no longer in the country. She’s looking to “grow our joint vlog channel, our audience loves to watch my husband and I together and know what we get up to so we have been filming [YouTube videos] on our day to day lives and travelling.” We can’t wait to see more of that.
When we asked her about her career highlight so far, she says it was launching her special edition kit with Benefit Cosmetics called Chloe's Brow Wardrobe Australia Palette, which consists of products like the Foolproof Brow Powder, Gimme Brow, Precisely My Brow Pencil, High Brow Glow Pencil and a mini Ka-Brow Cream-Gel. "I’ve been using Benefit brow products forever and to have my face on a box of my top fave products in-store is just such a ‘pinch me’ moment!"
During our chat we also quizzed her on what her favourite beauty products of all time were.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
“I’m lucky to have quite long lashes, but they’re not super thick so I find [this] has a great wand and formula for finding every hair and making them nice and voluminous and black.”
Lancôme Advanced Génifique
“Probiotics are a must - I love ingesting them and now I love putting them on my skin! [This product] helps protect and strengthen the skin's moisture barrier, which helps fight ageing, and it gives a beautiful glow.”
Face Halo Original
"Face Halo is a can't-live-without product. I use it every day, twice a day - in the morning to cleanse and in the evening to remove my makeup. I feel so good knowing I’ve reduced my carbon footprint by not using harsh makeup remover wipes that take 100 years to decompose.”
Clinique Cheek Pop
“I am loving [this] for a subtle blush! Plus, the packaging is so cute because it’s embossed with a floral design, and it’s nice and compact for travel or storing in your collection.”
Aveda Invati Advanced Scalp Revitalizer
“You apply [this] once a day to your roots and it helps keep your hair healthy and grows like crazy. I notice so much less hair falling out too, especially when washing. I love it and am on my second bottle.”
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
“[This] smells so so good and my skin absorbs it right away so I can get dressed immediately. It also has subtle shimmer so my skin glows without looking glittery.”
Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation
“I really like Dior Backstage Foundation! They have good undertones too - cool, neutral and warm, and also cater for olive tones. I use 2n or 3n (the neutral ones).”
Cloud Nine The Curling Wand
“I enjoy my one-inch tong by Cloud Nine, it’s the perfect size for my hair length and it’s the first time I felt like I’ve really been able to get beach waves.”
