Our Backstage Beauty issue is here!

Come behind the scenes...

Editor / May 08 2023

The world of beauty is a fascinating one, filled with incredible talent, skill, and drama (mostly in the lashes). And if you've ever wanted a peek behind the curtain, you've come to the right place.

BEAUTYcrew's latest digital issue has arrived just in time for Afterpay Australian Fashion Week (AAFW), where the chaos of backstage hair and makeup is just captivating as the runway.

Our cover star Josh Heuston is no stranger to such scenes, having been scouted as a model before landing the role of Dusty in Heartbreak High. This year, he'll be attending AAFW with Redken — a match made in hair heaven, if we do say so ourselves.

Starting with the ABCs of healthy hair and ending with makeup artist confessions, there are plenty of juicy tips and backstage tricks to learn from your living room. We even spoke to Kylie Jenner's makeup artist, Ariel Tejada, about how he landed his dream job. Plus, TikTokers share their filming day must-haves and celebrities pass on makeup wisdom from their glam teams.

If you've ever wanted to know what it's really like to work in beauty, it's an edition not to be missed.
