Beauty Island tells stories of memories sparked by beauty products. Host Brittany Stewart gets inside the minds (and beauty cabinets) of well-known figures inside and outside the beauty industry.

Each episode, guests will be asked to share the eight beauty products that have a special meaning to them. Maybe it's the lipstick their mum used to apply on a night out, the first beauty product they ever bought themselves, or the perfume that instantly brings back memories of a special occasion. We'll discover more about their career, relationships, family, challenges and everything in between, bookmarked by the beauty products that have helped shape their lives.

It's a celebration of life - and lipstick.

    Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the award-nominated beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.

    I'm your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart.

    If you're new here or you just need a recap: Each episode, I sit down with a guest and ask them about the 8 beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them. The ones they'd take to a desert island, or Beauty Island, that I am sending them off too.

    Maybe it's the first beauty product they ever bought, the one that gives them their signature look, or the perfume that instantly sparks a memory of a special place or person.

    Along the way we find out more about their life, career and the people and events that have shaped them into who they are today.

    And today, we have come to the season finale of Season 5 of Beauty Island! Gosh, it's been a strange year, but I'm so grateful for all your support with two seasons and that special Lockdown series. As I mentioned last week, Beauty Island was a finalist for Best Arts and Culture Podcast, which for an independent podcast run by just me, is a huge huge honour. And I couldn't do it without you! So thank you. I'll be taking a bit of a break over summer and returning in 2021 BUT the good news is that my Christmas podcast, A Christmas Binge, is returning for a second year! A fun and festive listen that looks at what we watch, what we eat and how we celebrate with interesting guests, the first episode will drop early december with some stellar guests so keep your eyes and ears out for that. I'll put a link to subscribe in the shownotes.

    Onto this season finale, today my guest is founder of Self Care Originals, Rachael Akhidenor. Described as a social enterprise disrupting the wellness industry by advocating for self care for all, Self Care Originals's current form is wearable activism and a content platform, but as you'll hear in this interview, it's just the beginning for the brilliant inclusive platform Rachael is building.

    I thought it particularly fitting to end the season and the year with this interview with Rachael, in arguably a year where we've talked about the concept of 'self-care' more than ever. In an insightful and thought-provoking chat, we talked about what self care actually means vs what we're sold it should be, what the wellness industry needs to do to welcome more diversity, her love of blush, and the affordable and unexpected oil she says is a gamechanger for dry skin.

    Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the award-nominated beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.

    I'm your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart.

    If you're new here or you just need a recap: Each episode, I sit down with a guest and ask them about the 8 beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them. The ones they'd take to a desert island, or Beauty Island, that I am sending them off too.

    An exciting announcement that Beauty Island has been nominated for an Australian Podcast Award! Yey! We're a finalist for Best Arts and Culture podcast, with the winner announced Saturday 21st November. So keep your fingers and toes crossed for me, and whether you've listened to one episode or all of them, I just wanted to say thank you to you so much for your support of the podcast.

    But enough about that for now! And on to today's episode.

    Today my guest is editor and journalist, Gyan Yankovich. Now a little disclaimer that this interview was recorded earlier this year, in May. Now that's a few months in normal times, but in 2020? Well, let's just say a lot has changed. When we recorded, Gyan was living in New York in the midst for a terrifying first wave and strict lockdown. She was also the managing editor of renowned fashion turned culture site, Man Repeller. Since we spoke, there have been a succession of changes - a callout, a redesign and then, most recently, the announcement of the closure of the site. For more context read this. Before that, Gyan moved back to Australia and is now the Managing Editor of Junkee.

    If you grew up reading Aussie magazines in the 20teens, you'll no doubt recognise Gyan's face. Born in Bathurst, before moving to Sydney to pursue a career in the glossy world of magazines, Gyan was a beauty editor for the likes of Cleo, Cosmo and Dolly before moving to digital to help form Buzzfeed Australia's founding team. She is brilliant, talented and she has the best and longest natural lashes I have ever seen.
    We talked through the mascaras that bookmark her beauty journey, the legend of the office tanning salon for beauty editors, applying foundation with your fingers and what exactly are the Saturday spirals.

    Today my guest is comedian, radio host, author and Priceline Ambassador, Tanya Hennessy. You may have heard her voice on radio, seen one of her brilliant videos on social media, or maybe even caught her earlier this year on I'm A Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here Australia. She went viral seemingly overnight in 2017 after posting a parody video called 'Everyday Makeup Tutorial'. But the story of her career and where she got to today started long before then and in an era obsessed with internet and overnight success, hers is a fascinating one. We talked cutting her own 'Rachel' haircut as a teen, the $12 mascara she claims is better than Dior's, and her funny and refreshing take on the self help genre with her second and brand new book, Help Self, out today.

    Today my guest is beauty brand founder and managing director, Alison Goodger. Ever heard of Sukin skincare? Of course you have. Spearheading the natural skincare space, Alison was the co-founder building the brand up to become Australia's no.1 selling natural skincare. Now, back along with her brother, she's birthed a new natural, vegan beauty brand called Alkira Skincare. We talked what it's like launching a new brand amidst a global pandemic, how a skateboarding accident as a child gave her a rude crash into beauty, the natural deodorant she swears by, and she reflects on a particularly pivotal time in her life where she sold her business, had her third child and was diagnosed with breast cancer in the space of just a few months.
