You’ve spotted them in-store, watched them on our YouTube Channel, and double-tapped them on Instagram—and now it’s time to make it official…meet the Official MECCA Beauty Junkies. We have a feeling you’ll be seeing them around.
If you ever find yourself in space and see a glimmer from Earth, it's Anabelle's highlighter—the way to her heart is through all things sparkly. She’s a true gloss gal, a style diva, and always chooses sneakers over heels. Life goals include eating copious amounts of dumplings around world.
Can’t-live-without? Hourglass Vanish Foundation Brush. “There is no other way for me to apply foundation now that I've found this brush. It smooths complexion products over the skin like no other and delivers an airbrushed finish every single time.”
The last product that got you really excited? Stila Magnificent Metals in Bronzed Bell. “It just adds instant glam to any look! Honestly, love at first swipe!”

Amy can often be found refining her flat-lay photos or smokey eye application. When she's not trying to selfie with her dog, she is shopping for plants and homewares to pretty up her home. Her signature beauty move is orange eye shadow—she’ll convince you to try it, too.
Can’t-live-without? Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Peel Pads. “These peel pads are a staple product in my 'Skin Heroes’ collection. They give me a quick skin fix, leaving it plump, smooth and radiant.”
The last product that got you really excited? By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush Mascara. “I love that I can really lengthen each individual lash, then twist the wand for instant volume at the roots. The most exciting part for me is that it doesn't smudge as I suffer from panda eyes most days!”

When at home, Ash spends her time getting glam in front of her ring light and filming beauty tutorials. But, as a Perth girl, she loves nothing more than spending the day by the crystal waters of the west, covered head-to-toe in Mecca Cosmetica To Save Body, obvi. Post-swim, Mexican food and a good Netflix binge is her ideal night.
Can’t-live-without? Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Night Serum. “It’s completely smoothed out my skin, minimised my pores and I just can’t go to sleep without putting it on.”
The last product that got you really excited? Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow. “Especially in the shade ‘Carefree’, it gives an everyday look a bit of a spin and I love it!”

When she isn’t painting faces or finding new products to obsess over, Caitlin’s ideal day goes like this: brunch, homewares shopping, a walk by the beach and dual bingeing on chocolate and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Can’t-live-without? Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara. “I have the smallest lashes but this bad boy gives me so much volume and thickness. I can layer it and it doesn’t go clumpy.”
The last product that got you really excited? NARS Natural Radiant Long Wear Foundation. “I’m a huge lover of their all-day luminous weightless foundation, but being more on the dry side I felt like I needed more luminosity, and the Natural Radiant definitely delivered.”

When she’s not figuring out ways to make her skin look impossibly glowy, you’ll find Em tucking into a big bowl of creamy pasta, patting other people’s dogs on the street, or in a Pilates class. Her kitchen has the best lighting, which is why you see a lot of her fridge lurking in the back of her selfies.
Can’t-live-without? bareMinerals Complexion Rescue. “Quick to apply, light coverage, dewy and I love that it’s good for my skin.”
The last product that got you really excited? NARS Wanted Palette. “The exclusivity of this palette really made me want it, and once I had it, I fell in love with the deep plum shades. I’m currently mixing it with the Urban Decay Backtalk Palette, my latest obsession.”

Emilie is a self-professed “glow kween”, and an accidental “sass pot”. Once she pops, she just can’t stop talking about makeup, skin care and all things beauty. If you want to win her over, a packet of salt and vinegar chips isn’t a bad place to start.
Can’t-live-without? Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil. “This baby has been my most purchased skin care product of all time. It saved my skin when it was at its absolute worst and has taken it to a whole other level of goodness.”
The last product that got you really excited? Maison Margiela By The Fireplace EDT. “The idea behind this luxe range of scents totally vibes with me and I can’t get enough of smokey, warm fragrances. To me they’re sexy and earthy and I need to smell like this all day every day!”

If the light seems extra bright in Nicole’s lecture theatres, it’s because of her highlighter. Nicole enjoys watching movies with her cats Leo and Liv and has a true appreciation for cinematography and makeup artistry within films—it inspires everything she does from Instagram posts to in-store looks.
Can’t-live-without? Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done. “It’s my ride or die complexion product.”
The last product that got you really excited? Hourglass MECCA20 Ambient Lighting Palette. “The packaging was stunning and having the limited-edition blush shade created just for MECCA felt so special.” Similar here.

Excel nerd by day, avid #MECCABeautyJunkie by night. Gin’s signature look is Insta-glam: full coverage base, loads of highlighter and big lashes. When she isn’t freelancing with bridal clients on the weekend, you can find her eating her way around Melbourne. ICYMI, don’t worry, it will feature on her Story.
Can’t-live-without? Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara. “The only mascara I have ever tried that doesn’t give me racoon eyes. I have very short lashes and hooded eyes, so any mascara smudges down my lower lashline almost immediately—even waterproof! But not Kevyn!”
The last product that got you really excited? Hourglass Vanish Flash Sticks. “I hadn’t seen a product achieve the amazing dewy finish this could, so I was beyond excited to get my hands on these lil’ sticks. It leaves skin with an almost wet-like finish and no need for powder highlight.”
