Podcasts are having a moment, and it’s about time you get involved. From megastars recapping the shows that made them famous, behind-the-curtain looks into the fashion world, or people discussing cultural events—there’s so much content out there to absorb. And while a beauty podcast might sound a little silly (how can you talk about something so visual?), some of the best ones can teach, enlighten, and humor curious listeners. Ahead, GRAZIA rounded up some of the best podcasts out there for those who are obsessed with all things makeup, skincare, hair, you name it.
Beauty editors Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan bring California sun to your ears with their stellar podcast about all things beauty.

Smell Ya Later
Beauty writers Sable Yong and Tynan Sinks go for the ultra-niche in this podcast all about fragrances.
