Our Story

Our Story main image Our Story image


We are fiercely proud to be an Australian Brush brand with ultimate Australian based management of our product range.  We are not an agent of any overseas parent brush companies to whom we might lose control concerning our pricing or product manufacturing. This single point of difference means we can in most cases offer a more competitive price for a better quality of brush or accessory product, and the profits stay in Australia. It has been our experience that far too often, Australians find they are paying too much or in fact buying a cheaper made product, as a major portion of profits go O/S. When you buy DMT you can be confident in purchasing a quality product, backed, developed and often assembled right here in Australia. 

Ever since Designer Tools Australia started importing brushes 35 years ago, it has stood firm in sourcing Genuine Professional brushes created by hand with expertise in brush manufacture using the best raw materials, all ethically sourced. Our passion and proficiency in being able to offer our Medium to High Grade brushes at fabulous prices is one of the main keys for our success. Though experience and longevity is one thing, Designer Tools Australia continues to keep up with the latest trends in the industry and in many cases, has become innovators as well. 


Vast warehouse stocks here in Australia of over 800 different products help deliver almost perfect fill rates with most morning orders received being dispatched within 24 hours. In fact most of our brushes are stocked in extremely large quantities so huge orders are rarely a problem for prompt dispatch. Please enquire about dispatch times for special orders or orders requiring Private labeling.


In our brush assembly plant in Queensland we utilise the latest in German and Italian crimping and brush making machinery, as around 30-40% of our brush range is assembled in-house and we even private label and print in-house. A diverse range of the best brush components/raw materials are carefully selected from many countries around the world and then assembled together to form many of the brushes you will find in our unique brand. Our makeup brushes and tools are not only practical and easy to use, but consistently perform with precision and reliability, with that little touch of luxury every makeup artist looks for in their brushes.  We know that brushes need to perform consistently and not just look good at the time of purchase.  We are constantly fine-tuning our product range; working closely with our customers and component manufacturers to ensure the very best quality ends up in your hands. We love our product and think you'll be impressed too!
