Podcasts are the new IT thing in Pretty You London HQ - granted some of us are big on the whole crime themed podcasts, (not for the faint hearted, or those of us prone to paranoia if a man smiles at us in the supermarket, heaven forbid!). The real buzz however is all about the beauty podcasts, we wanted to round up our favourites and the ones that we think are amazing for those of you that are new to the podcast game. Be prepared for your commutes, your cleaning and every other chore in your life to get a whole lot more entertaining!
If you only listen to one podcast, make it this one. If you want a girly chit-chat that will make you feel like you're hanging out with your friends (aka the point of a podcast) then this one is amazing! Esther's and Caroline's true love for limited edition products, and hatred of working out, makes you feel like they are your kindred spirits and that you're not alone in your 'glow ups' and 'glow downs'.
This is a great podcast of 2 friends talking about makeup, one a professional and one not a professional but a beauty addict all the same. It is great to listen in on different girls opinions on the latest beauty products and trends, just so you get an honest insight on whether you should buy into them or not. Pre-warning: most of them we do want to, either way.
If this isn't the best concept for a podcast, then we dont know what is. Each bi-weekly episode is about a completely different woman's beauty routine, with women from all different careers, ethnicities, lifestyles, etc sharing, this podcast is truly enjoyable. For those of you that don't have an overwhelming sense of curiosity to know what other women are using, then we applaud you, we however need to know.
I'm Over It
We defy you to listen to this podcast and not develop a girl crush on Atlanta, and all her podcast guests for that matter. This is the ultimate girl talk podcast, they chat all about botox, cat calling, vision boards, all the way into the more serious topics such as sexual assault and life after the event. Overall a really great podcast that makes you feel as though you've spent some quality time with your best friends.
As 2 of the most experienced beauty editors in the industry Jessica and Jennifer have access to a whole host of amazing guests, any advice they want to give, we want to take. With beauty tips ranging from the newest concept of facials to the 'pink bubble theory' (you need to listen to the podcast), we are in love with this honest, fun and informative podcast.
This podcast recommendation comes with a warning... your bank account is going to take a huge decline because of all your new skincare purchases. Each week Jill and Charlene talk to the founder of a skincare (or makeup) brand, one word, inspiring. We love this podcast because it is so fascinating and informative! You fall in love with the brand's stories and it is amazing to hear about the science behind the ingredients of each brands most loved products. Be prepared to become a skincare goddess.
We would be lying if we said we didn't listen to this podcast firstly because it was founded by Lo Bosworth, one of our favourite girls from The Hills, hello nostalgia. However, we continued to listen because we fell in love with her co-hosts Jilly Hendrix and Greta Titelman just as much and the forever ranging topics from beauty, all the way to business.
At Home With...
Hosted by Lily Pebbles and Anna Gardner, 2 of the biggest OG british beauty bloggers, it it should come as no surprise that they have a huge array of amazing guests on their show. From guests such as Terry De Gunzburg, Alexia Inge and Liz Earle, founders of some of the biggest beauty brands we know and love, all the way to our favourite fashion and beauty bloggers like Patricia Bright, this relaxed 'chilled on the sofa with friends' vibe podcast is a true winner.
The Emma Guns Show
Again another podcast that centers around an interview aspect, Emma has guests on the podcast from the health, wellness and beauty fields. Perfect for getting the opinion of an expert, we love it because it is informative, inspiring and most of all entertaining because after all, that is all we want. With currently 150 episodes and counting, it is one you can really sink your teeth into!
Let us know in the comments below your favourite podcasts because we love a good recommendation and honestly, the more we have in our rotation, the better!
