Overseas Orders

Standard Shipping for smaller orders under 2kg to most countries incurs a shipping charge of AU$39, and AU$25 to New Zealand, which is automatically applied at the checkout stage. Larger orders and/or certain destinations may incur extra shipping charges, and if this is applicable, the customer will be sent an invoice for this extra amount for payment prior to the goods being dispatched.  Not all items are available for overseas shipping, for example, ALL hard and soft makeup cases, and Elementwo Airbrushing products are excluded from being shipped overseas, as can be seen on the relevant product pages.  If one of these products is inadvertently ordered and paid for, the customer will be advised and a credit issued for the portion of the order that applies to the item/s not able to be shipped.  The 'free shipping over $200' does not apply to Overseas Orders. Should insurance be required for any orders, the customer should make a note on their order, and once the extra insurance cost is calculated, the customer will receive an invoice for this portion, prior to dispatch of goods. Damage or loss in transit is not the responsibility of Designer Makeup Tools.  Insurance is recommended. Delivery time is approximately 3-10 business days after receipt of payment (not including Saturday and Sunday). To review our International Shipping Rates click here.
