Listening to podcasts is an interesting way to pass some idle time. Depending on the topic, you learn and laugh, your brain either gets stimulated or manages to unwind. According to Good Housekeeping, 37 percent of Americans say they listen to a podcast at least every month, while 55 percent have listened to at least one episode of a podcast. Those numbers may have increased amidst the pandemic as most of us now spend a lot of time indoors.
While Statista reports that the leading podcast genres are comedy, news, true crime, sports, and health and fitness, a new genre has emerged and that's the topic of beauty. YouTube, Instagram, and most recently, TikTok, have been the go-to avenues for beauty influencers, but more people now are appreciating audio commentary without the need for visual aids.
This award-winning podcast is hosted by friends and beauty editors Jessica Matlin (Harper's Bazaar) and Jennifer Sullivan (Marie Claire). As industry insiders, they break beauty trends, uncover bizarre beauty crazes, and promote need-to-know brands and beauty products.
They also get advice from fellow beauty veterans, skincare enthusiasts and celebrities like Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, Christian Louboutin, Frederic Fekkai, Olivia Wilde, Miranda Kerr, and Kat Von D.

Comedian Jackie Johnson combines beauty and comedy on her podcast Natch Beaut. Allure says what sets her apart from other beauty podcasts is her passion for cruelty-free beauty products and routines.
