Jemimah Di Natale has the ethereal beauty often reserved for ’90s supermodels, and her beauty collection def compliments her #blessed genetics. She mixes simple, natural skincare with peachy balms and earthy fragrances — the ideal mix for somebody who travels the world as much as she does. If you’re in the mood for some travel-induced FOMO, then we highly recommend trawling through her Instagram — you’ll be planning your next vacay before you know it.
We asked the Melbourne-based photographer and all-round cool gal about the products she swears by, and she did not disappoint. With tips on taming your eyebrows before bed, the products to carry with you at all times, and fading sun spots, her product recommendations are not to be missed. Thank you, Jemimah!

Mario Badescu Whitening Mask
“Although this is called a whitening mask, it’s more of a brightening mask. This mask really makes my skin glow after using it. I like to use it when my skin is feeling dull, and to give my face some good T.L.C. I use it once or twice a week, and it leaves my skin feeling full of moisture and silky smooth. It gets rid of any dark spots and discolouration left over from past blemishes and sun damage. You can see the results right after use. I highly recommend it.”
“If I were stranded on an island and was only allowed to have one beauty product with me, witch hazel would be it. It saves my skin. I use it after cleansing and before both serum and moisturiser. If I feel oily, or can feel city dirt building up on my face throughout the day, I wipe a small amount on my T-Zone. After a night out, if I can’t quite cleanse before bed, I will always clean my face with witch hazel. I won’t go a night without it.”
Diptyque Philosykos Solid Perfume
“I love fragrances — I like to imagine an identity that goes with a certain scent, and I love how different fragrances can bring me back to a specific time, place, and feeling. I’ve recently been into solid perfumes. I particularly love the selection from Diptyque. I like how the scent develops on your skin — it feels more natural, like I naturally smell like eating figs in Italy in the summer time. I’ve been wearing Philosykos.”
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge
“You’ll always find Pot Rouge in my handbag. I much prefer balm blush over powdered blush. It’s build-able and versatile – I can wear the same deep red colour for day or night on my cheeks and lips, and it can have a completely different effect. For my daytime look, I lightly pat some on my lips with a little bit of papaw or rosebud salve for that I-just-ate-some-cherries effect, and press it into cheeks after moisturising. When I’m feeling bolder, I build it up for a darker and deeper lip tint.”
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
“I use the Egyptian Magic salve as primer, or I mix it in with foundation for a dewy, ‘no make-up’ make-up look. Before bed, I massage some into my eyebrows, which makes my disobediant brows easier to style the next day. It also does a great job at healing dry skin, lips, and cuticles in the colder months!”
