If there’s one type of podcast that I enjoy listening to, it’s beauty podcasts. After a good book, they’re the perfect pick up on a Sunday afternoon, in the bathroom, or just when you have a little more free time than usual. (Which, by the way, a lot of us are doing right now.)
With that in mind, I’ve summarized some of the most popular beauty podcasts for like-minded beauty addicts that you can read, listen to, and subscribe to. You have pretty much everything you want to know about beauty.
Have fun while listening!
