Featured as one of the Top 10 podcasts by Harpers Bazaar and a must listen by Stylist, Glamour, Good Housekeeping and Vogue Italy, Outspoken Beauty is the UK's most honest, straight talking beauty and wellbeing podcast that uses beauty as a way to start powerful conversations. It's hosted by beauty columnist and broadcaster Nicola Bonn.
As well as great product recommendations and tips expect conversations with an array of experts, specialists and inspiring humans that cover everything from the joy of lipstick, skincare and supplements to debates around ageism, diversity, self pleasure and challenging the status quo.
This is a podcast for anyone who finds joy in beauty, who wants to feel great about themselves in a way that is so much more than just skin deep and who wants the confidence to find beauty in who they are rather than what society expects of them. Prepare to be challenged, informed and inspired!
Jenni Retourne: Age Without Apology
In this episode I chat to the incredible founder of Willowberry Skincare, Jenni Retourne.
Jenni, whose brand is loved by many makeup artists is on a mission to change the conversation around ageing in the beauty industry and recently launched her Age Without Apology Pledge where consumers and the members of the industry can come together, make a pledge and help change the anti-ageing narrative. (I'm really proud to be a part of the Founder Member Collective).
During the episode we chat about why we are so passionate about changing the way that products are marketed to with the use of fear and how we want to see the beauty industry help us embrace who we are rather than make us doubt ourselves. Jenni has lots of advice for brands and consumers alike and is utterly inspiring.
I love what Jenni is doing. It's something that I'm so passionate about and it's a total honour to have her as my guest on this really important episode.

Cheryl Hole: My Beauty Habits
In this episode of My Beauty Habits I'm joined by drag artist extraordinaire Cheryl Hole. Cheryl was one of the first contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race UK and during the episode we talk about what drag means to her and how it's developed as an art form in recent years.
Cheryl has the most vivacious, warm personality and as I get to know her more, we delve into her beauty habits. Over the years she has mastered the art of makeup and she has a lot of AMAZING recommendations. We also chat skincare, our love for Fenty Beauty and Cheryl shares some beauty secrets that are serious game changers.
I loved getting to know Cheryl and this episode is guaranteed to boost your mood and makeup skills.
Cherry Healey: Two Outspoken Ladies
I don't know how to sum this episode up apart from to say that Cherry and I had so much fun recording it and we covered all sorts of topics from vulvas to manifestation to past relationships. It really was just the most brilliant catch up and I feel like we put the world to rights and I left feeling all empowered and excited.
Cherry is an ambassador for the brilliant charity The Eve Appeal and I just wanted to say that the work they do is incredible. They raise awareness of and research the 5 types of gynaecological cancer. They also offer 24/7 support with specialist nurses on their phoneline. If you do nothing else, please go to their website and read their guide to the Cancers....I have learnt so much from them and have had medical checks that I never would have known that I needed if it wasn't for the education that they offer.
Minipod: My favourite Instant Tanning Drops
In this week's Minipod I focus in on four products that give you an instant tan and beautiful glow. Most of them also have skincare benefits and can be used in a number of ways.
Products mentioned: Tanluxe Super Gloss SPF30, Indeed labs Bronzing Drops, Pai The Impossible Glow and Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer.
Old, Borrowed and New With Bryony Blake: Episode 3
In this week's episode of Old, Borrowed and New, Bryony and I chat about everything from how hamsters running in balls must feel to how we'd deal with being a comedian to why Bryony will do anything to escape being told off. As ever the conversation goes in all sorts of weird and wonderful directions but comes back to the main event...old, borrowed and new beauty products that we adore. This week we cover a mascara that doesn't budge, the perfect summer fragrance, a cheap and cheerful shampoo and a blusher that's guaranteed to give your cheeks some va va voom.
So happy that this is going to be regular with Bryony, two of my faves talking about and recommending products, completely up my street! Xxx
This is an amazing podcast! Nicola is consistent and passionate about what speaks about and tests beauty products with no bias to allow a fair review. I found this podcast about three weeks ago and have binge listened to it since. I just adore Nicola and this.
