Gritty Pretty Magazine is an interactive online magazine dedicated to beauty. The quarterly digital publication brings you the latest in beauty news, trends, how-to guides, beauty shoots, videos and more.

Summer 2021 Issue

Down Under, summer is (finally!) here and so is the inaugural summer issue of Gritty Pretty Magazine.
We have you covered with everything from beachside beauty tips to New Year’s Eve makeup looks (because you are dressing up, right?). Cover girl and local modelling legend Samantha Harris opens up about her career journey to date and why she is focusing on projects close to her heart (and home). Plus, the indie beauty brands set to take over 2021; local hair stylist Chrissy Zemura’s push for a more inclusive training program for hairdressers; the ultimate guide to fake tan; how to tell if your skin is purging; and a whole lot more.

Beauty minus the BS.

Gritty Pretty – which is expertly curated and aims to educate and inspire – also offers a shoppable edit of products deemed essential by the industry professionals who know best.

Our team of beauty editors and journalists work diligently to cut the crap; bringing readers honest and trustworthy content. Gritty Pretty’s independence is paramount; we may receive product samples for editorial consideration, trial and testing evaluation purposes, but only products that meet or exceed our discerning standards will be considered for editorial coverage. Similarly, a treatment or other experience may be given a preferential media rate or comped, but that does not guarantee or influence coverage of any sort.
