This week I’m taking it back, all the way back to a 2002 copy of British Vogue, to look at how we used to talk about beauty. I've always been a big magazine collector, especially when it comes to the international editions of Vogue, and lately I've been drawn to flicking through old issues for inspiration. What I found in this 2002 issue were adver…
 
This week it’s a chatty, newsy kind of episode. I’m talking about Ami Cole products finally arriving in the UK (whoop!), thinking about buying the new Liquid Lipstick Vinyl range from Byredo and discussing the value of It Girl Lori Harvey’s makeup artist James Kaliardos. James is the original multi-hyphenate, a major player in beauty, and for some …
 
This week’s guest is Alice Audley, founder of Blogosphere, an online magazine and events agency that also has its own podcast: Serious Influence. London-based Alice has a background in print journalism but decided to ditch her job to launch Blogosphere in 2013. Since then it's gained the respect of the influencer community and has become known as a…
 
This week’s guest is Lily Twelftree, a Junior Marketer and part-time graphic design student based in Sydney, Australia who has an amazing ability to analyse trends in beauty and then make them make sense to the rest of us. I can’t remember how I first found her account, Barefaced Media, but she was an instant follow, as her approach to analysis rea…
 
This week it’s a guest interview with New York-based makeup artist and all-round creative Ehlie Luna. For me Ehlie was the perfect guest for an episode that's all about evolving and finding your voice. She first came onto the show in May 2021, and at the time she was adjusting to taking a break from working in makeup for the New York City Ballet, a…
 
As promised on Instagram, in this episode I'm going to go through the stunning September issue of British Vogue, with THE supermodel, Linda Evangelista on the cover. For this shoot, the Canadian super reunited with equally iconic photographer Steven Meisel, to create some truly fantastical images. But, as a photographer and a Linda fan, I've been t…
 
This week I’m diving into three key beauty stories that have basically annoyed a lot of us, or, if not you, me! The three stories I’m focusing on are a shady aesthetician who Photoshopped an actress from Stranger Things to look 'prettier', the toxic beauty standards that Tyra Banks and her America’s Next Top Model team fed to us back in the 2000s a…
 
This week I’m sharing my favourite products that keep my skin glowing all over, all year round. I know for a lot of people, glowing limbs and collarbones are only really a thing when the summer months roll around but for me, as someone with brown skin, it’s always been about enhancing my skin tone. Just this week I started to see the Autumn press r…
 
This week I really wanted to share three podcasts that influence me every single week; Jay Shetty's On Purpose, fashion designer Recho Omondi's The Cutting Room Floor and Maintenance Phase, an anti-wellness show hosted by Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes. While Jay Shetty inspires me to grow and create the life I want, Maintenance Phase is the podc…
 
Something a bit different this week! All throughout the pandemic lockdowns I kept hearing more and more about various types of personality tests. Everyone seemed to be talking about INFJs and ENTJs or whether they were a number 4 with a Bear wing and I had NO clue what was going on! More recently, one of my favourite YouTubers, Hindz did a personal…
 
Few people have made as much of an impact on the beauty industry, at just 21 years old, as Hannah Harris. The Florida-born creative launched a ground-breaking Instagram account in the summer of 2020 and nothing was the same again when it came to diversity in the beauty industry. The account @browngirlhands showed brands what they hadn't been showin…
 
This week’s guest is someone I’ve wanted to have on for a while now and Ashley Nelson, AKA Restroom Rituals was worth the wait. Ashley has built up a 13k Instagram following since launching her irreverent and honest profile just two years ago; a fact that I find unbelievable as Ashley was so clearly destined to be very public-facing, but I've also …
 
This week’s guest is one of the UK’s original hair bloggers and award-winning wig maker, Gina Knight – you might know her as Gina The Wig Witch, and if you’ve been on the internet for a while, you might have known her as Naturalbelle. Based in Reading, UK, Gina has been blogging since 2008 and launched her wig design company in 2016 as a way to sup…
 
Note: I know I shared on social that this week's episode was going to be with a guest but the audio came out really poor.So, I’ve been thinking about the concept of retouching lately and I’ve been wondering, as a photographer, beauty writer and consumer, do we really need it? When Photoshop was first launched by Adobe in 1990, the founders thought …
 
This week’s guest is New York-based Jennifer G. Sullivan, a beauty journalist with 20+ years experience and the co-host of one of the biggest beauty podcasts EVER, Fat Mascara. Alongside Jessica Matlin (Director of Beauty at luxury online retailer Moda Operandi) Jenn started Fat Mascara back in 2016. More than 400 episodes later they have this real…
 
This week’s episode is all about SPF; in some ways it's kind of a follow-up to the two sunscreen episodes I did last year, which I'll share below. I'm talking about six sunscreens that are new (to me) and giving my honest, real reviews on each of them. Two of these were gifted and I bought the other four and I definitely found a couple of new favou…
 
Back in January 2021 I invited TikTok creator Sonia Valencia onto the show. At that point Sonia was already known for creating no BS content that centred on her being over 40 and wanting to experiment with skincare and play with makeup. She became known for her very real and honest reviews on social media and occasionally, you’d hear her swear. In …
 
This week I’m talking about sleep hygiene and how it influences not only the quantity and quality of our sleep, but also the quality of our work, relationships and more. In this episode I'll explain what sleep hygiene is and share some advice from the experts while also acknowledging how there are some counter arguments when it comes to just how da…
 
After two weeks of being ill I’ve had a lot of time to read, to listen to podcasts and watch documentaries I’ve always wanted to see and it got me thinking about the concept of lessons. I think, since the pandemic hit, we’ve leaned way more into self help - it used to be something that people might cringe at or feel like they couldn't take about. B…
 
This week it’s a new Meet the Founder episode, and if you don’t already know, Meet the Founder always takes place first on Instagram Live. As such you will discover that the editing is minimal, but my guest’s advice makes it all worth it. April 2021 wouldn't be the most obvious time to start a new beauty business, but for San Francisco born and bre…
 
TW: Before I share details of this episode please be aware that we briefly mention suicide and abuse, so if that could be upsetting please feel free to listen to a different episode. This week’s guest is content creator and licensed therapist Funmi Monet. While the Dallas, Texas-based creator has become known as TikTok’s ‘fave fragrance Aunty’ - sh…
 
This week’s episode is a Shop my Stash episode; I feel like it's so easy to constantly scroll and buy makeup on social media platforms, often without really thinking and definitely not needing that new lipstick or blush. So I decided to open up my makeup stash and pick up the things that I sometimes take for granted but ultimately always go back to…
 
This week’s guest is someone I’ve admired from afar for a very long time. While I can’t remember when or how I first discovered Navaz Batliwalla’s writing, I’ll always remember how much I love/d the name of her blog – Disneyrollergirl. London-based Navaz is a writer who’s serious about her research (thank goodness!) and she loves to dive into a sub…
 
This week’s episode has been a while in the making and it all started with a voice note. My friend, beauty editor Ava Welsing-Kitcher, who recently moved to the US, told me how popular the UK Black Girl makeup look was becoming on TikTok and that I needed to take a look. A few hours later and I was hooked; not just on the makeup style itself, which…
 
This week it’s the episode that almost didn’t happen! I’ve been working on an episode that I think is going to be amazing, but when the time came to record it I was in bed with the worst period-related exhaustion. However, I still really wanted to check in with you, so this episode is kind of a catch up with my week. Leading on from that feeling of…
 
This week it’s another Deep Dive and it’s a super specific episode dedicated to Nanoblur. Nanoblur is an award-winning product from the brand Indeed Labs and although it’s been around since 2011, it’s definitely seen a huge resurgence since Donni Davy, the head makeup designer on the MASSIVE show Euphoria, said that Nanoblur was a must on set. In t…
 
This week my guest is Natasha Maldonado, Video Marketing Manager at beauty mecca Sephora and freelance makeup artist. Born and bred in Los Angeles, Natasha is someone I’ve been following for a while because I love the insights she shares into her cultural background as a Latina. A major theme that came through in this interview was family; it's cle…
 
This week’s episode is all about Glossier; how it started and how it's going! If you've kept up with the beauty headlines lately, you'll know that on January 26th Glossier laid off a third of its staff, almost completely from its tech department. Of course the beauty and finance worlds instantly started speculating; what could be next? The Business…
 
This episode is a really indulgent one; it’s basically a list of all the makeup products I want for my birthday next week! No deep and meaningful conversation here but I still think this episode makes sense because it’s been a while since I’ve been this excited about beauty. I'd love to know if you've used any of the products I've mentioned and how…
 
This week’s guest is someone I’ve wanted to have on for a while. I have so much respect and admiration for Irish makeup artist and creator Aoife Cullen. The first time I discovered her on Instagram I was blown away by her eyebrows. They were and still are, super skinny, almost like slashes that she uses to frame her amazing looks. Looks inspired of…
 
This week it’s a new Meet the Founder episode. If you don’t already know, Meet the Founder always takes place first on Instagram Live. It’s a really great way for brand founders to connect with future founders and share their experiences. As it’s a live experience, the editing is minimal – so you might hear the odd glitch! But my guest’s advice mak…
 
I don't know about you, but I've never really known anyone with diabetes. I've heard rumours that it runs in my family, and heard horror stories about terrible things that can happen if it goes untreated, but aside from that, I've been pretty ignorant. It wasn't until I started following YouTuber and NHS Gastroenterology and Liver Disease Nurse Ala…
 
This week’s episode was definitely a no-brainer for me. Last year I did a complete overview of the hair and makeup in the Netflix film Malcolm & Marie, and the lead actress, Zendaya is also a key character in HBO’s Euphoria. You know, that show that’s all about teen drama and has inspired makeup lovers around the world to create some amazing looks …
 
Today I’ve got another Deep Dive for you, but before we get into it I must say, I am not an expert in NFTs nor am I an expert in anything remotely money-related. I just wanted to do this mini Deep Dive because I know that many of us have no clue what an NFT is or how it might influence the world of beauty. As well as breaking down what NFTs are, I’…
 
This week’s guest is someone I had on back in August, 2019. At that time Texas-born Lauren Napier was enjoying the height of her beauty brand being loved around the world; she literally made the most luxurious makeup removing wipes ever. But then the pandemic hit and the New York-based business owner's supply chain was seriously affected. So I real…
 
I’m bringing back my #BeautyBuzz - a more beauty news and information-focused segment that I started before the whole world went inside. Think of them as bite-sized snack style podcast that are either focused on beauty news or a 10 Minute Deep Dive into something very specific. My first guest expert for a 10-Minute Deep Dive is Elisabeth Williamson…
 
This week I wanted to share some beauty news around trends we can expect to see more of in 2022; it's a short episode so don't expect a deep dive into any of the subjects just yet. Instead I wanted it to be an informative overview of what's to come, so I’ve been trying to read as much as I can, so that you don’t have to! I will be doing further epi…
 
It's the first episode of 2022 so I wanted to start with a guest who's all about good vibes and mindfulness. I'm aware that January can be this month where we all feel like we *have* to do a detox or take on an entirely new regime, not to mention have a resolutions list that would impress on social media. So I wanted to just ease into the year with…
 
Ending the year on a chilled note, this week’s episode is part 2 of my focus on burnout. While the first episode – number 97 – was all about sharing experiences and solutions from my guests, this part is more about the things I like to do to just try and get my body and mind back into some kind of balance. I'm sharing my top five things to do when …
 
This week’s guest is New York based makeup artist and podcast host Rachel Estabrook. You might already know Rachel's work or you might recognise her name from the recent burnout podcast I did. I wanted to invite Rachel on for a dedicated episode because not only is she a makeup artist who freely shares her work journey, she’s also pretty funny, oft…
 
This week’s episode is all about the empties! It’s been a while since I’ve done one and I feel like it makes total sense to do one right now as we close out the year. For me, this past year has seen my skin go through some major upheaval, not to mention, major maskne and that made me change everything. So in this episode there will be some tried an…
 
It’s episode 100! Wow. It made a lot of sense for me to bring back my very first guest EVER on BeautyMe, because we have both evolved a lot since that first episode aired in June 2019. Florence Adepoju is the Founder of THREE companies - and counting - she’s also helping others build their own beauty brands with https://www.famlabs.co. Before @faml…
 
I’m beyond excited to introduce this week’s guest. I have been an avid fan and follower of Felicia Walker, AKA ThisThatBeauty for almost 10 years I think. I can’t remember what first enticed me to follow Felicia but I knew that I related to her, as a beauty journo, as a woman of colour in the beauty world, and as someone who has dealt with differen…
 
This week’s guest is Demi Colleen, AKA Beauty Influencer of the Year at the recent Blogosphere awards here in the UK. For me, Demi is beyond anything that you might assume of an influencer in the traditional sense. She might be an influencer but she’s not afraid of making beauty brands accountable when it comes to diversity, inclusion and outright …
 
Claire Baker is a sought-after period coach, author and speaker. For nearly a decade Claire has taught thousands of women how to live in harmony with their menstrual cycle, rather than working against it. Claire believes menstrual cycle awareness is the missing key in women’s wellbeing, empowerment and creativity, and her immersive online courses a…
 
This week’s episode is part one of a burnout miniseries. The first part is all about how burnout shows up in our bodies and the second part will focus on solutions we can try to make things feel a little bit better. So, in this episode I’ve invited six friends and former guests to send me their thoughts on burnout. You’ll hear from makeup artist an…
 
Berlin-based beauty creator Jessica G adores makeup for so many reasons and has grown up during the rise of social media. As such she has complex views on being both an influencer (approaching 30K on Instagram) and being influenced by what she sees. In this episode Jessica reminisces about her mum giving her chamomile tea hair rinses as a child and…
 
This week’s episode is a brand new Meet the Founder with Jason Lau, the owner, founder, and just about everything else at Canadian beauty brand Phytosurgence. The Meet the Founder series is an opportunity to chat with the face behind the brand, and Phytosurgence is fast becoming a cult-like phenomenon. Personally, I think that’s down to Jason’s ver…
 
Hi! After a short break I'm back with an episode that's full of reflection, and questions! Burnout has been on my mind a lot, and as we make our way towards episode 100, I really want the next few episodes to offer solutions. I want to talk to my guests about their experiences with burnout, whether they’re beauty pros or students; whether they’re i…
 
This week’s episode is essentially about Skims, Kim Kardashians’ cult status lingerie and loungewear line that is known for its pretty much perfect fit. However, it’s more of a starter conversation, as themes of body image, plastic surgery and race are just some of the themes that do come up when discussing Skims, and we can’t possibly cover everyt…
