Any true beauty podcast fans will be well aware of Breaking Beauty, the podcast dedicated to great beauty products and the stories behind them, by journalists Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins. Founded in 2017, the Canadian duo have quickly become the biggest names in beauty podcasting, with a guest roster to match; they’ve interviewed the likes of Frank Toskan, Emily Weiss, Brandon Truaxe, Anastasia Soare, Jen Atkin, Bobbi Brown and more. As if that wasn’t enough, the two have a combined 30+ years in beauty journalism so know a thing a two when it comes to cult beauty brands and products, which they discuss at length in #theglowdown feature of the podcast. In 2 short years they’ve successfully scaled a podcast in a competitive and cluttered environment by offering a clear point of difference on the AppStore. Can you tell we’re fan-girling a bit here?
