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!
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.
The Joy of Warm Science: Outspoken Beauty X Whind
In this special episode in partnership with Whind Skincare I meet the incredible entrepreneur and brand founder Hind Sebti.
Hind, who has worked for many of the largest brands in beauty, decided to take everything that she had learnt about skincare and combine it with her belief that it should not only be efficacious but that it should also bring joy. She coined the phrase "warm science", where the best ingredients and formulations meet a wonderful and sensorial experience and built her brand Whind which totally encapsulated this sentiment.
Hind is a really special woman whose beliefs about what beauty should mean and how it should make us feel sit so right with me and I love the fact that she has created something that is so authentic to her and that I hope will inspire many of us to find more joy in our daily rituals.
Minipod: My Top Oil Cleansers
In this week's Minipod I talk about my favourite oil cleansers. Although not for everyone, an oil cleanser is very good at getting stubborn makeup off, attracts oil and a good one will leave your skin feeling comfortable and hydrated without any residue.
I've given a variety or recommendations so whatever your skin type you should be covered.
Here are the products I mention:
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil
Avene XeraCalm A.D. Cleansing Oil
Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil
Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil
