My Favourite Beauty Podcasts

Sometimes we are so caught up in running errands, cleaning the house, or spend countless hours in the car. Reading blogs is a lighter alternatives to books, especially when it comes to beauty and makeup topics. But even easier to consumer are podcasts. Here I put together four of my favourite beauty podcasts for your listening pleasure. Welcome to Artist Spotlight #6 series on my blog.

Fat Mascara – Hosts (and friends) Jessica Matlin and Jennifer Goldstein bring you the big, juicy, world of beauty on their award-winning weekly podcast. With day jobs as beauty editors, Jess & Jenn are plugged in to the industry’s latest news and share their inside access along with candid stories of their beauty adventures, from celebrity interviews and freaky new facials to miracle products and epic beauty fails. Each week, they also get advice from their favorite people in the beauty business, including influencers (Olivia Wilde, Miranda Kerr, Jaclyn Hill, Emily Weiss, Christian Louboutin, Bianca Del Rio, Patrick Starrr), makeup artists (Mario Dedivanovic, Lucia Pica, Sir John, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown), hair stylists (Serge Normant, Jawara, Orlando Pita, Ursula Stephen, Frederic Fekkai), and other industry experts like dermatologists, colorists, manicurists, perfumers, and more.

The Beauty Brains – They’re here to help us cut through the confusing, misleading and sometimes false information that the beauty companies bombard us with. Their goal is to explain cosmetic science to us in a way that’s entertaining and easy to understand. They believe the more information we have, the better we’ll be able to find products that we like at a price we can afford. So, we can listen to the advertising. Or advice from a friend. Or what our stylist tells us. But if we want to really understand cosmetic products in an unbiased, scientific way, ask The Beauty Brains. You’ll get answers from a team of scientists who have no sales pitch and nothing for you to buy.

That’s So Retrograde – Elizabeth Kott and Stephanie Simbari have been coined “the Ab Fab of the new age” with good reason. Effortlessly merging pop culture and wellness, the ladies of That’s So Retrograde seek out their most authentic selves, one mistake — or mindful awakening — at a time, while graciously bringing their listeners along for the ride.

You Must Remember This – This is the podcast dedicated to exploring the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century. Since launching as a passion project in April 2014, You Must Remember This has become one of the top film podcasts around. This podcast is a heavily-researched work of creative nonfiction. Every reasonable attempt is made at accuracy, but quite often when it comes to the kinds of stories they explore here, between conflicting reports, conscious and unconscious mythologizing and institutionalized spin, the truth is murky at best. That’s kind of what the podcast is, ultimately, about.

Audrey Hepburn’s Lipstick In “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

My all-time favourite film is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. “Because nothing bad can ever happen at Tiffany’s…” right? I wholeheartedly agree!

The iconic lipstick that Audrey Hepburn (Holly) wears throughout the film has been on the minds of beauty lovers for decades! And luckily for us, it can still be found and purchased today.

The legendary shade comes from non-other but Revlon, the pioneer of makeup industry at the time. Their creme lipstick in the shade “Pink in the Afternoon” is the historic item being reapplied throughout the course of the film at least five times, enough for the audience to fall in love with it.

Have you wondered about her lipstick shade before? Are you inspired to run out and grab one for yourself? Do you want me to research into other famous lipstick shades? Let me know in the comments below!
