In her very first beauty podcast evah, Victoria Beckham is here alongside Sarah Creal, co-founder of Victoria Beckham Beauty. In today’s episode, Victoria recalls how the “Girl Power” of the Spice Girls helped fuel her sustainable-luxury beauty range, rumoured to have raked in nearly £2 Million within 3 months of its launch in 2019. Sarah reveals how much research Victoria *really* put into the creation of the hit celebrity line, and we get the goods on the all-time best seller – an eye makeup must for Mom’s on the go – plus, their top tips for applying the upcoming new Victoria Beckham Beauty Matte Bronzing Brick, inspired by Posh’s life in Miami.

Then & Now: Victoria says she has no regrets about her beauty looks of the past

But first, we go deep on the topic of self-image, as Victoria recalls being bullied both as a child, and in the noughties when the savage paparazzi showed young Hollywood zero mercy. Then, we get seriously UPLIFTED with insider tales involving a run-in with Beyonce, developing makeup shades with Harper, how the duo has been coping in quarantine – and we find out what else is on the ladies’ top shelf (including a surprising drugstore fave!)

Well People Co-Founder Shirley Pinkson

It’s official, Breaking Beauty fans can’t get enough of clean beauty (hat-tip to listeners who filled out our survey for that intel!) In today’s episode, we bring you the origin story behind W3ll People — one of the O.G. all-natural makeup brands founded in Austin, Texas back in 2008. (Psst: Shailene Woodley is a fan!) We sit down with co-founder and makeup artist Shirley Pinkson, who trained under makeup master François Nars before setting out to create a green beauty dupe of “The Multiple” – and a whole wardrobe of good-for-your-skin cosmetics .
