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.

Nadine Baggott - YouTuber and Celebrity Beauty Editor (UK)

Is neck cream a complete waste of money? Is the science or the marketing of a beauty product more important? And what's the foolproof eyeliner Nadine's been using for years? Listen to find out...Hello and welcome back to Beauty Island, the beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.I’m your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart.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 product that reminds them of their mum, the beauty product that defined their teens 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.I’m very excited to share today’s episode with celebrity beauty editor, TV presenter, YouTuber, and one of my favourite beauty content creators, Nadine Baggott . As I mentioned last week, it’s one I did when I was in London. I slid into Nadine’s DMs, not expecting to hear back, and within a few hours we’d set a date to meet up at her agent’s office to chat.In a world of 20-something beauty youtubers, Nadine, in her mid 50s, does beauty for grown ups, as she calls it. After 18 years as a celebrity beauty editor at Hello Magazine - and does she have some stories including being told to fuck off by Kate Moss and sued by Naomi Campbell - frustrated by the slow uptake of print media to the digital space, she started a youtube channel. She now has over 100,000 YouTube subscribers and is represented by Gleam Futures, the same talent management as Zoella, Pixiwoo, Louise Pentland, and many more. It was in their office we met, a bustling place near Tottenham Court Road.Nadine is tall, confident, cool and utterly charming. You can see why she’s such a brilliant journalist - warm, open, funny and able to instantly put you at ease.This is a slightly longer episode than normal but for good reason. We covered so many topics in the beauty industry, with Nadine offering a no BS, upfront take on it all from why she hates the term ‘clean’ beauty and the battle between science and marketing in the beauty industry to whether expensive and cheap makeup is all coming from the same factory. Bet your ears pricked up at that!She shares the 8 (plus a few more!) beauty products that have a special memory for her, why neck creams are a complete waste of money and the face product that’s confidence in a tube.As always, If you enjoy this episode, please subscribe to the podcast, rate five stars and write a review on Apple Podcasts.

Laura Henshaw - Co-Founder, Keep It Cleaner

The life-changing fitness advice that will change the way you approach working out... Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the award-nominated beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick. I’m your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart. 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 beauty product that defined their teens, the one they grew up watching their mum or grandma use, 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. Today, my guest is Laura Henshaw, Co-founder of Keep It Cleaner. Keep It Cleaner, or KIC as it’s affectionately referred to, is one of Australia’s leading health and fitness programs aimed at women. The former model, law student and influencer founded it as an e-book with fellow model and best friend Steph Claire Smith, and in five years has grown it to a multifaceted business, including healthy treats you can find in the supermarket, that focusses on not just exercise or food, but health as a whole. You’ll find no mention of diet or weight loss - a definitive decision made by the pair’s own experience in the modelling industry where appearance and worth being dangerously linked. If you’re one of Laura’s quarter of a million followers on Instagram alone, no doubt you’ll no doubt have an idea of a passionate, bubbly, beautiful and success person. From this interview, I can confirm it’s entirely accurate. Positive, honest, kind and generous, Laura welcomed me into her Melbourne home with open arms to explore her relationship with beauty, health, relationships and a hobby that turned into a lucrative business. We talked about her struggle to separate her value from her looks in the early years of modelling, dealing with the trolling that comes with having a public profile, finding the motivation to put your health first, the go-to sheet mask she swears by for moments of self-care, and her secret Dj-ing past. She was candid, honest and full of valuable advice and insights that we could all be reminded of. As always if you enjoy this episode, please subscribe, rate five stars and write a review.

Sharon Farrell - Makeup Artist, YouTuber, Founder of Online Makeup School

Ever cut a fringe and regretted it? Step right this way...Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.I’m your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart, and each episode I sit down with a guest to ask them about the 8 beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them, that they’d take to a desert island, or Beauty Island, that I am sending them off too.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.Today my guest is Makeup Artist and YouTuber, Sharon Farrell. Starting on the Benefit counter of her home in Ireland, Sharon started her YouTube channel in 2010. Now, she’s had over 35 million video views, over a quarter of a million youtube subscribers, and has just launched her very own Online Makeup School. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed or intimidated by the makeup on beauty youTube videos and assumed knowledge they can often make, then you might be very interested to learn more about it.In this episode, Sharon gives real insight into the world of working as a YouTuber including the steady growth of success over almost a decade rather than (as we keep coming back to) being an overnight success, knowing her husband was the one from the first date (after dodging his calls for a few weeks!) , her post-baby crisis decision of cutting a fringe, and the cheapo cleanser that stops all her breakouts.Since we spoke, The Online Makeup School has properly launched offering thorough, easy-to-understand and follow tutorials across a range of subjects for a super affordable price - some from $20 to the most comprehensive at $200. This is not sponsored or I haven’t been asked to spruik this, but I think it’s such a good and valuable resource and there’s also a discount available at the moment too, so it’s worth checking out if it's of interest.Follow Sharon:Instagram: @hellosharonfarrellYouTube: Sharon FarrellOnline Makeup School: Follow host Brittany Stewart:Instagram: @brittanybeautybts @beautyislandpodcastEmail: beautyislandpodcast@gmail.comSubscribe to It's A Beauty!

Kirstie Clements - Author and Former Editor of Vogue Australia

Imagine meeting your husband in a glamorous, smokey Parisian nightclub...Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.I’m your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart, and each episode I sit down with a guest to ask them about the 8 beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them, that they’d take to a desert island, or Beauty Island, that I am sending them off too. Maybe it’s the product that reminds them of their mum, the beauty product that defined their teens 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.Today my guest is Author and Former Editor of Vogue Australia, Kirstie Clements. Working her way from the front desk to the top job, Kirstie spent 13 years as the editor of Australia’s premiere high fashion magazine. Then one day, out of the blue, she was fired. Her book The Vogue Factor, which she was approached to write the very next day, tells of her incredible story from rebel in The Shire to Beauty Editor in Paris to one of Sydney’s most influential magazine editors... And what happened after that.Like anyone who was once a budding fashion journalist, I have long admired Kirstie and thumbed The Vogue Factor, the first of five books she has written, countless times. So it was truly an honour to have the chance to chat with her about discovering the Sydney punk scene at 16, how beauty can be warpaint, community building and even meditive in life’s chaotic moments, her blurred cameo in Zoolander and how she’s feeling about returning to magazines full-time six years after leaving Vogue, this time as Features Director at Harper’s Bazaar, another former home for her.One note - this interview was conducted over the phone so the quality of the audio is not as good as when we’re both in the same room. That is always my aim in arranging interviews, but given I’m in Melbourne, work full-time in a job unrelated to this podcast and many of my guests are a) in Sydney and b) very busy people who are very kind to give up their time to do this podcast is sometimes a little difficult. I do use my leave to go up to Sydney every few months to do these interviews but I recently had someone a leave a review commenting on the audio of these over the phone episodes so just wanted to acknowledge that and explain a little bit about why that sometimes happens. But as always I appreciate that feedback, and will definitely be ensuring more, and hopefully soon, all episodes are done in person.Speaking of reviews, If you do enjoy this episode, please subscribe, rate and write a review.

Sarah Tarca - Beauty Editor, Former Editor of Girlfriend, Beauty Director of Marie Claire Australia

Religiously read Girlfriend magazine as a teen? You're about to fan girl with this week's guest, Sarah Tarca.Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.I’m your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart, and each episode I sit down with a guest to ask them about the 8 beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them, that they’d take to a desert island, or Beauty Island, that I am sending them off too. Along the way we find out more and their life, career and the people and events that have shaped them into who they are today.Today I’m talking to editor Sarah Tarca. Chances are if you picked up a magazine in the last 10 years, you’ve probably read her work. And, if like me, as a teen you were a regular reader of Girlfriend magazine, then you’ll recognise her immediately, as the beauty editor and later editor of the iconic Aussie youth magazine. She later became the Beauty Director of Marie Claire before making the incredible decision in her thirties to pack up her life and travel the world with her boyfriend, indefinitely. This wasn’t traditional backpacking holiday though - the pair became digital nomads, working and travelling around the globe. That was about two and a half years. As I sit down with Sarah today a few things have changed - boyfriend now fiance and the proud parents of gorgeous three month old Yuki.We talked about the lengths she went to chase her dream job, what she learnt packing it all in to go from beauty editor to backpacker, the power of teen mags and how it’s changed and why a red lip is more than just a statement - it can be a lifeline.One more thing. Reaching out and meeting Sarah was a special moment for me. You see, as a 13 year old from the UK, just moved to Australia - same language but totally foreign in almost every other respect, I was one of those teens for which mags like Girlfriend were a saviour. It was a window into what Aussie teens were watching, wearing, talking about. It gave me common ground and it helped me belong, and I don’t know how many issues I religiously read Sarah’s beauty columns in. I hope you enjoy.Follow Sarah:Instagram: @tarca @thewayward.coVisit her new lifestyle and wellness site: The WaywardRead her article about going from beauty editor to backpacker.Follow host Brittany Stewart:Visit beautyislandpodcast.com for more episodes and BTS action.Instagram: @brittanybeautybts @beautyislandpodcastEmail: beautyislandpodcast@gmail.comSubscribe to It's A Beauty!

Kate Morris - Founder, Adore Beauty

Kate Morris was just 21 when she had her million dollar idea - Australia’s first online beauty e-commerce site, Adore Beauty. On this episode, discover how she did it and her own journey through beauty.Hello and welcome to Beauty Island, the beauty podcast that celebrates life and lipstick.I’m your host, beauty journalist, Brittany Stewart, and each episode I sit down with a guest to ask them about the 8 beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them, that they’d take to a desert island, or Beauty Island, that I am sending them off too.This doesn’t necessarily mean practical products but rather the beauty products they’ve come across throughout their lives that carry significant stories, power or nostalgia for them. The ones that make up a little bit of who they are. Along the way we find out more and their life, career and the people and events that have shaped them into who they are today.Today my guest is Kate Morris, founder of online beauty retailer, Adore Beauty. At a time when we’re obsessed with lady bosses - a controversial term we do talk about in this episode - on paper Kate seems like the ultimate one in a million entrepreneur. And in a way she is - at just 21 years old, not yet graduated from uni, while she was working on the Clarins beauty counter in a department store she realised that there were better and more enjoyable ways customers were looking for to buy their beauty products. Online. Except it was 1999 and it just wasn’t a thing that was done in Australia. Kate went for it and nearly 20 years later Adore Beauty stocks established and emerging beauty brands like Dermalogica, Bobbi Brown, The Ordinary, Salt by Hendrix and Iconic London.But there’s so much more to her story. Like how she almost threw in the towel in the first year, the hard work you often don’t see shown on social media, the industry recognition that took a decade and Estee Lauder who said no to being stocked on the site for 14 years.I sat down with Kate in Adore Beauty’s Melbourne offices - and the first thing I noticed was how at 6pm on a Monday we were the only two there. You’ll find out the excellent reason why when we chat about work life balance. We also talked about how the beauty industry reacted towards a 21 year old from Tasmania trying to revolutionise the industry (spoiler: not well initially), the $19 multi-purpose balm she takes absolutely everywhere with her, and why it’s not ideas that are the most important thing but rather actually executing them. She is generous, brilliant and full of incredibly inspiring advice. I hope you enjoy.Follow Kate:Instagram: @kateadorebeauty @adorebeautyofficialShop Adore Beauty: http://bit.ly/2Cgy5q6Try out Findation: http://bit.ly/2S5Trf1Follow host Brittany Stewart:Instagram: @brittanybeautybts @beautyislandpodcastEmail: beautyislandpodcast@gmail.comSubscribe to It's A Beauty!

Jules Sebastian was earlier this week and today, is former ELLE Beauty Director Amy Starr.As you might know by now - or maybe you don’t! - my name is Brittany Stewart and I’m the voice inside your ears aka the host of Beauty Island. In each main episode, I ask a special guest about the eight beauty products that have a special memory or meaning for them. But, in Five Favs, the focus is on the beauty products in their makeup bags they’re loving right now.Amy Starr is the former Beauty and Lifestyle Director of ELLE Australia. Her main episode dropped a few weeks ago, so just scroll down a little on your feed if you haven’t listened to that already. In Five Faves, she talks about nearly-always-sold-out foundation alternative she loves, and why you should never apply a serum to a dry face. This was one piece of beauty advice that blew my mind. As someone with over a decade of experience at Australia’s top magazines, I couldn’t not ask about where she thinks there’s still a future for print magazines.If you enjoy the podcast, you can subscribe to make sure you never miss an episode.
