Born in the great U. S. of A., these beauty superheroes' veins run red, white and blue. Celebrated on their home turf, these cult skin care offerings have crossed the pond to stake their claim to our impressive 'Hall of Fame' - and boy, are we glad that they've made the trip! From under-the-radar indie ranges to the brands you'll find in every savvy stateside beauty guru's bathroom cabinet, we're celebrating all things North American with the coolest brands emerging from across the Atlantic.

Unless you've been living under a stone, you can't help but know about {Tata Harper}. And if you haven't heard, you're bound to have seen her distinctive green bottles of plant-powered gorgeousness. Super-natural yet seriously efficacious, her gorgeous tinted balms are the best gateway buy (we're besotted with the {Volumising Lip & Cheek Tint} in 'Very Vivacious') - they're guaranteed to trigger an addiction to her skin care super-stars. 

Another wonder-woman who's keeping things real in the skin care industry, Indie Lee's products are completely free from synthetics. Her brilliant {CoQ-10 Toner} is a favourite of Caroline Hirons, however it's her prettily pink {Rosehip Cleanser} that's stolen our hearts. Great for sensitive skin types, this refreshing gel formula melts dirt and grime to leave faces clear, calm and contented.

Brilliantly occult, {Rituel de Fille} has pagan vibes with its to-die-for goth-girl packaging that's irresistibly glossy. Made using mineral pigments, the {Inner Glow Crème Pigment} caught the internet's imagination with it's 'anti-highlight' vibes (learn more about that {here}), while the new incarnations of the {Rare Light Luminizer} - 'Solaris' (a shade-shifting ruby gold) and 'Lunaris' (a holographic lavender illuminator) - drew covetous coos when they landed at CB HQ.

Fuelling the farm-to-face frenzy, {FARMACY} is a true skin care force of nature. Boasting home-grown ingredients, the brilliant brand encapsulates the current beauty zeitgeist - cool with a conscience, not only are the products impressive, but the packaging is infinitely Instagrammable. You will LOVE the {Honey Savior} - the does-everything balm that your handbag's been missing.

The name behind the world's most famous faces, Nurse Jamie's expertise (and stellar skin care) graces the complexions of the Kardashian Klan, Kirsten Dunst and eternally luminous Jessica Alba. Sometimes weird but always wonderful, Khloe K swears by the purple {UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller}, while the bestselling {Beauty Stamp} consistently sells out - it's a favourite of discerning CB devotees.

And for those who like their make up with a generous dose of ease, look no further than {NudeStix}. With convenient sticks of pigment, you'll adore the indelible (wearable) {Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils} - the shade 'Stiletto Red' is a hot, sexy shade for forthcoming festivities - and we recommend you pair it with a pared-back glossy lid. Just use the clever {Glossing Pencil} to lend lids a chic, editorial edge.
