Breaking Beauty Podcast

Jan 16, 2019

There’s lots to catch up on during this first #GlowDown of 2019! Find out why @donte.colley is our fave person on instagram right now, Carlene shares a cautionary tale from her New Year’s Eve while Jill’s mission is to get hella organized this year. Plus we have two incredible guests - one who shook up an iconic makeup brand and another who’s giving us the inside scoop on the reinvention of a nearly 100-year old cult favourite skincare product that celebrities hoard.


And we have some really special guests. Ever wondered who’s behind alllll the CoverGirl changes you’ve been hearing about over the past year? In today’s episode, we get up close and personal with Coty’s  former Chief Marketing Officer, Ukonwa Ojo, the mastermind behind CoverGirl’s woke-generation re-brand - Hot news- watch this space for news on her next career move. We had the privilege of sitting down with her to learn some of her seriously mentoring ways, plus learn what’s on her personal #topshelf.


But first, we have our #DamnGoods segment, in partnership with Weleda, where we go deep on a serious cult favourite: Weleda Skin Food. Carlene visits Weleda’s HQ to find out why this iconic skin balm, invented in 1926, is still hoarded by Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Julia Roberts, Pat McGrath—and us. And we get scoop about the brand’s first major innovation in nearly a century: three new Skin Food line extensions launching this month, quite possibly as bomb as the O.G.
