Rank #2: Nadine Baggott Pt 1: Honesty, feminism and #antisocialmedia

Podcast cover
Read more

If you want an honest answer about pretty much anything to do with beauty then speak to Nadine Baggott. She has an encyclopaedic beauty knowledge and I've never asked her a questions she hasn't known the answer to. You'll see what I mean when you listen to the show...

We cover a lot of ground in this episode, but Nadine references a BRILLIANT article which you can read in full here --> Generation Y

We talk about the cult of contouring, what beauty buys you should and shouldn't spend your money on and why being yourself is so crucial. The latter is while you'll never find her images filtered or tinkered with...

Nadine shares with me what it was like being thrust into the spotlight via a hugely popular ad campaign ten years ago - it went viral before we knew what viral was, and what it's like to be in touch with her legion of fans via her YouTube channel The Beauty Know It All

We also talk about what it's like interviewing celebrities and what we've learned from coming face-to-face with the A-list. Is it as exciting as one may think..?

You can follow Nadine on Twitter @NadineBaggott on Facebook at Nadine Baggott The Beauty Know It All and she's also on instagram @nadinebaggott.

Podcast cover
Read more

Joining me in this episode is Sali Hughes (@salihughes/@salihughesbeauty) who invited me over just before the launch of her second book Pretty Iconic - the follow-up to her first book Pretty Honest - to have a good old chinwag. I'd like to be able to wrap up exactly what we covered during this epic chat into a neat little nutshell, but it is neither structured nor predictable - so do come along and enjoy the audio ride...

What you do get for joining us, in the first of this two-part podcast, is some incredible advice on hosiery, an interesting discussion about Converse, and some 'lols' over a school reunion...

On a more serious note we also talk about the importance of having a strong sense of self, the responsibility she feels towards her viewers and readers, and she reveals how she approaches the writing process.

Sali is a columnist for Guardian Weekend, The Pool and Empire Magazine (the editor of Empire, Terri White, was a podcast guest back in the summer) and also contributes to Grazia, The Observer, Elle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Stylist, Woman & Home, Good Housekeeping, The Telegraph and Red.

Rank #8: The Ultimate AM/PM Skincare Regime

Podcast cover
Read more

I've had a lot of emails and DMs from listeners asking me to share my AM and PM skincare regime so in this episode I talk about the ingredients in use in the morning and in the evening, the products I've tried and how my skin has changed since I started my new regime 18 months ago.

The products I used when I first switched:

Morning:

Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Acid. A gold-standard antioxidant regarded as one of the, if not the, best by many of my beauty colleagues.

Indeed Labs Hydration Booster. A really milky, soft and efficient hydrating booster that works AM or PM.

Clinique Moisture Surge Supercharged Concentrate. Another great hydrating gel serum. This one also contains antioxidants and I like it as a last hydrating step, if needed, under makeup.

Evening

Paula's Choice Clinical Retinol Treatment Full size - Normal skin - Breakouts" target="_blank">Paulas Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment. This really is a great retinol treatment that I've seen incredible results with. Ease your way in, follow the instructions.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair. If needed, but a great hydrating serum that instantly quenches that dry/tight feeling in skin.

Rank #9: Paula Begoun: Choice, Truth and Hormones.

Podcast cover

subscribe

On this episode of the show I'm joined by Paula Begoun of Paula's Choice (@paulaschoiceuk) to talk about her skincare range, why she worries about all the misinformation about beauty out here on the internet and the two major changes we could all make to our beauty regimes for our best skin. Paula is a published author (here's her author page on Amazon.co.uk), was dubbed 'The Cosmetics Cop' by Oprah Winfrey and is a proud entrepreneur of 40 years - as you can imagine our conversation takes several twists and turns... From her days as a makeup artist, to suffering with acne and eczema and how that informed her feelings about topical skincare, to writing books and then starting her brand - it's all in here. We also talk about hormones and their effect on skin as well as health. 

In this episode of the show Paula talks about her Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant*, £25, a lightweight exfoliating fluid that helps breakdown dead skin cells for skin that looks more radiant and feels smoother. It's a great lotion to have in your beauty arsenal if your skin is prone to looking dull and is also a good line of defence against blackheads.

If you want to get in touch with the show it's so easy - just email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com and if you're enjoying the podcast please do leave me a 5-star rating and review on iTunes here. Thank you! EG xx

Rank #17: Marisa Peer: Hardwiring, Change and Being Enough.

Podcast cover
Read more

Marisa Peer (@marisapeer/@marisapeertherapy) is a motivational speaker, celebrity therapist, behavioural expert and pioneering hypnotherapist trainer who invited me to her London home to record this episode of the show.

She is listed in the Tatler Guide of Britain's Best Doctors, was named Best British Therapist by Men's Health and counts celebrities, Olympians, CEOs and Royalty among her clients. 

In researching Marisa I spent hours on YouTube watching her talks and the main take-away, for me, was that how you are today isn't how you have to be tomorrow. If you catch yourself saying things such as, 'I always do _' and feel helpless to not do _ again, then Marisa's methodology is well worth exploring. 

We all have patterns, but in this conversation Marisa explains the simplicity with which you can free yourself, especially if you feel a certain behavioural pattern - such as emotional eating - is holding you back or not allowing you to live the life you want to.

At the core of her messaging is this idea of being 'enough'. Indeed she has 'I AM ENOUGH' written in lipstick on all the mirrors in her home and has given many talks (I've listed some you can find on YouTube below) where she outlines how not feeling enough can be at the core of the issues we all face. 

I feel very privileged to have been able to spend time one-on-one with Marisa and meeting her had a very positive effect on me, as I hope this podcast does on you. 

Marisa now teachers The Marisa Peer Method, where you can learn to do what she does. If you want to find out more you can email support@marisapeer.com quoting 'The Emma G Show'.

Marisa's talks can be found on YouTube, here are some stand-outs:

The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity - A-FEST

I was thrilled to sit down with Fleur Bell, better known as Fleur de Force (@fleurdeforce) to quiz her about her incredible success on YouTube and how she has turned filming videos for her beauty channel into a huge business.

If you're a regular listener to the show, you'll know I like to unpick how my guests have achieved their incredible success, whether it's finding out how brand owners created and developed their products, how editors have found their voice in their editorial, and much more besides (there's usually a dash of RuPaul's wisdom thrown in for good measure too...)

In seven years on YouTube she has grown an audience of nearly one and a half million subscribers, has a range of eyelashes with Eylure, and has authored two books; The Luxe Life and The Glam Guide

We talk about the early days of YouTube, what it takes to make it as a vlogger, her rules to success, growing up online and in the public eye, and her work ethic.

Fleur's Top 3 Products:

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Makeup SPF15, £32.

Yves Saint Laurent Luxurious Mascara for False Lash Effect, £25

Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil, £28.
