Iconic movie makeovers with Laura Capon

Season 2, Ep. 8

This week, I’m excited for you to meet my friend Laura Capon. She’s the Deputy Beauty Editor at Cosmopolitan magazine. In addition to being one of the funniest (and most informative) people for you to watch on IGTV, she loves films as much as I do.

Today, Laura and I are going to reflect on some of our favourite fashion and beauty moments in films from times gone by, with special attention to the iconic movie makeover. We hope this trip down movie memory lane will inspire some joy in your lockdown watch list. If you need a good laugh, this is one for you. 

Here are some of the films and TV programmes we talk about in today’s episode, along with other points of note…

What Black Lives Matter means for beauty with Dr. Ateh Jewel

Season 2, Ep. 13
Today, I’m joined by an award winning beauty journalist, producer, brand founder and diversity advocate, Dr. Ateh Jewel. For as long as I can remember, Ateh has been at the forefront of conversations within the beauty industry about how we all need to work towards creating more of a diverse landscape.When the world became aware of the story of George Floyd in May 2020, a widespread conversation ignited about the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement. Within the beauty industry, Ateh was encouraging this discussion to create a wider awareness and ignite positive change. So, today, she joins me to share her experiences of being a black woman and mother in society today, and how the beauty industry can work together to create a better future.Ateh’s blog:www.jeweltonesbeauty.comAteh on’s foundation range, coming for Ateh’s foundation: in conversation with Susanna Taylor from Get the Gloss: in conversation with Caroline Hirons: Space by Space NK with Ateh: Gary, the Plastic Fetto, Palette: Braithwaite, I Am Not Your Baby Mother:
