Breaking Beauty Podcast

Dec 14, 2022

Who’s winning? Who’s losing? And who’s about to pop-off? Joining us for our annual “Beauty Year in Review” episode is Dulma Altan, the entrepreneurial creator whose “TikTok Business School for Women” content has everyone in the beauty biz taking notes. Whether she’s ‘splaining what private equity is using Kim Kardashian’s empire as fodder, or schooling us on who makes for a successful C-Suite using a Vegas girl’s trip as metaphor, Dulma’s sharp take on the beauty industry makes her the perfect guest to weigh in on which brands slayed this year, and who better watch their back in the year ahead.


Plus! Tune into Dulma’s podcast, Due Diligence, where we’re guests this week. We’re  taking the lid off the whole Girl Boss trope with POVs on what that term means going forward, where beauty innovation is headed and how we’ve managed to grow our own brand as magazine editors-turned-podcasters.


In This Week’s Episode You’ll Discover: 


  • Our hot takes on the year in headlines – Hollywood’s “Ozempedemic,” Alessandro Michele’s Gucci departure and… is this the next K18?
  • The one beauty-adjacent story making international news that could change the course of history, and why we’re inspired by creators like Elica Lebon to support United for Iran
  • The biggest moments in TikTok this year like Bobbi Brown’s epic clapback with Jones Road, Brownie Glazed Lips and why Mikayla Makeup has taken a break from the platform
  • Dulma’s expert take on which beauty brands she thinks have been winning and losing in 2022 
  • Stop everything. These are the beauty brands that Dulma would *personally* invest in right now
