    Ep. 208: How Makeup Artist Jillian Dempsey is Making Beauty Tutorials Better

    Makeup Artist Jillian Dempsey—who works with Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristen Stewart—tells about launching her new beauty app, FYFE, in the midst of a pandemic; her wrinkle-smoothing Gold Sculpting Bar; and her favorite beauty finds (you likely haven't heard of these before). Of course, we had to ask her about her days running the legendary Delux salon in L.A., where she met her client-turned-husband, actor Patrick Dempsey. Also in this episode: Jess talks about solutions for bikini line bumps and we discuss the salon experience in a post-pandemic world. Plus, we discuss the week's beauty news, including Johnson & Johnson's plan to stop selling talc-based baby powder in the U.S., Jeffree Star's controversial new makeup line, Kristen Bell's venture into CBD, and more.

    Ep. 207: Supplements, Sustainability, and More

    Ep. 207: Supplements, Sustainability, and More

    There's a lot to talk about this week! We discuss one of Jess’s favorite stores closing, which skincare supplements actually work, and the week's beauty headlines: Ulta sponsors R29Somos, a Latinx beauty and style website; the FDA approves a new lip filler; CBD line Uncle Bud partners with Jane Fonda; and L’Oréal launches a new program supporting women and the environment. Plus, we’re talking about sustainability with Christopher Skinner, principal and founder of School House—and now a special correspondent to Fat Mascara. He discusses what the word “sustainability” means to brands and consumers today. Has it become less of a priority because of the pandemic, or has it never been more important?
