The beauty and lifestyle podcasts I love

I'm going to be traveling a lot in the next couple of months. So I'll be catching up on the latest in the industry through my favorite beauty podcasts.

I love podcasts. The cosmetics industry is constantly changing. Listening to beauty podcasts is one of the ways I like to keep on top of the latest trends, innovations and products.

In my head, the hosts and I are friends sharing beauty, career tips and discussing how beauty relates to different societies and cultures.

Here are a couple of podcasts you should check out.

A list of beauty and lifestyle podcasts to listen to

The Beauty Brains

If you want to be an empowered beauty consumer, this is the podcast to listen to.

It's by two cosmetic scientists and formulators, Randy Schueller and Perry Romanowski, who have tonnes of knowledge about beauty products.

Listen here and prepare your beauty marketing side-eye.

Breaking Beauty

This is a podcast by two beauty editors, Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins. The podcast is about "the best selling beauty products and the damn good stories behind them."

One day, Imma launch #SkincerelySkincare and this podcast is a wonderful way for me to understand what beauty founders went through with their brands.

Listen here.

Fat Mascara

This podcast is by Jessica Matlin, beauty director of Teen Vogue and Jennifer Goldstein, beauty editor of Marie Claire. I love listening to the interviews with people in the beauty industry. 

Some of my favorite interviews were Charlotte Tilbury and Dr. Pimple Popper.

Listen here.

The Snailcast

This is a podcast with all my favorite K-beauty bloggers. Fanserviced, Snow, Fiddy and Holy Snails share details on the Asian beauty industry in a fantastic, fun manner. 

Listen here.

The Emma Guns Show

Emma is a former beauty editor. The podcast features "interviews with celebrities, brand creators, editors and authors." 

I can't begin to explain how much I love this podcast. It's always witty and informational.

Listen here.

Made Online

Hayley Carr is one of my favorite British beauty bloggers. Her blog aesthetic and content is #goals. So when she launched this podcast in May, I was excited.

Each podcast is a interview with someone who has made their career, brand, business or life changing moment online.

As someone starting to build her online business, this is great to listen to.

Listen here.


Every Sunday, I try to participate in the #BrownBeautyTalk Twitter chat. This was how I discovered this podcast. 

It is hosted by Louisa Kinawa and is centered around conversations on Pan-African culture.

Listen here.
