NEW Podcast: Huda Beauty Shares How To Transition From Beauty Blogger to a Multi-Million Beauty Brand CEO

I am so excited to announce my guest host this week, the one and only powerhouse that is Huda Kattan!

Those who are familiar with social media by any means will have seen Huda grow from a Dubai-based beauty blogger to CEO – and ultimate #bossbabe – of Huda Beauty, one of the biggest makeup brands in the world today. In 2018, Forbes listed Huda in their America’s Richest Self-Made Women listing, ranking her amongst the likes of Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Oprah and Beyoncé.

Not too bad at all.

So, where did this journey begin, I hear you all ask. What challenges did she face? How many knock-backs did she take (hint: she’s no stranger to failure!), what does her day-to-day consist of today – and what advice does she have for budding bloggers, YouTubers and entrepreneurs who have a burning desire to start their own brand?

Join me in today’s podcast to hear all of the above and more! If you love it as much as me, please leave a review and comment so we can share the positive vibes with all the boss babes out there.

Thank you for listening and enjoy the ride!

Love,

TV Appearances in New York, British Fashion Awards and My Latest Podcast Episode

Phew, what a non-stop couple of weeks I’ve had. Between recording new podcast episodes (hint: Huda Beauty upcoming!), jet setting to NYC for TV appearances, the British Fashion Awards and my Rodial/Nip+Fab team’s Christmas party, I’ve just about managed to keep on top of everything. Nevertheless, it’s been one amazing event followed by another. I’ll truly be ending this year on a high!

BRITISH FASHION AWARDS

I love attending the British Fashion Awards! It’s always such a buzz and a great time for me to catch up with people in the industry. This year I was on my dear friend and extremely talented designer David Koma’s table – and yes, Meghan Markle is just as stunning in real life as she is behind the screen. My outfit is one of David’s numbers, a gorgeous floor length embellished navy dress. It’s so beautiful, right?! I love the side slit. See below for highlights:

NEW YORK

The response to my podcast so far has been wonderful, and for that I’m so grateful! Thanks so much to all those who’ve been sharing the love on my Instagram. I see you all and am reading each and every review left on iTunes! I spent a few days in New York last week focusing on all things Overnight Success, plus visited Bobbi Brown to join her very own podcast too. See below for highlights, boss babes!

NEW PODCAST EPISODE

This will sound ironic considering the introduction for this blog post (!), but this week’s podcast episode is all about self-care; learning to take a chunk of your time to focus completely on yourself, refresh your energy and doing what really makes you happy – whether that’s binging on Netflix for 12 hours in bed, treating yourself to a spa day or indulging in all the carbs for the day.

Me? I personally need my Sundays to consist of absolute nothing, including saying no to my friends. I explain why this is important for me plus a whole lot more about the importance of taking caring of yourself in the full episode, available to listen to below.

PODCAST: How To Get Investment For Your Business

One of my frequently asked questions from budding entrepreneurs is how to secure investment for a business they’re aiming to take off the ground, and from existing entrepreneurs on how to secure a larger sum of investment to take their business(es) to the next level.

In this episode, I’ve decided to take a no BS approach: Giving it to you straight with the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to getting investment. Why you should, why you shouldn’t, how to go about it.

PODCAST: You Don’t Need To Be A Victoria’s Secret Angel To Feel Beautiful

I am very excited to chat with a very special guest for this episode of my Overnight Success Podcast, body positive activist Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor.

As some of you may have seen on my IG stories last week, I believe the Victoria’s Secret FashionShow is outdated and promotes an unhealthy and unmaintainable body image for females.

Atlanta and I both agree girls today and girls of the future shouldn’t put pressure on themselves to look like a Victoria’s Secret Angel to beautiful. Everyone is beautiful in their own individual ways, no matter what their body shape is or how hard they diet. I hope this episode truly inspires you to be confident with your whole self.

After facing issues with depression, addiction and body image Atlanta has turned her life around and became an advocate for young women through her podcast “I’m Over It”. We talk about her journey, how she turned her life around and how she deals with social media.

PODCAST: How Fitness Can Lead You To Success

Confession: I started exercising out of vanity. I wanted to look good. Little did I know I actually needed it, more importantly, for my sanity over any other reason.

Between juggling work, family, social media, my book and now podcast, life can be crazy (to say the least!). Finding a way to integrate working out into my life wasn’t always easy but I did it — and if you’re reading this thinking you can’t; that there’s no way your busy schedule allows for it, I’m telling you right this second you can.

In this episode of the Overnight Success Podcast, I’m joined by writer and podcaster Liv Siddall to discuss how fitness can lead you to success, how exactly to slot it into your day-to-day life when you have zero time and why we love Beyoncé’s fitness tips over every other celebrity’s. I want you all to feel as motived as me!

PODCAST: How To Be A Kardashian’s Makeup Artist with Mario Dedivanovic

I am so excited to share this podcast episode featuring a guest and friend of mine, Mario Dedivanovic (aka @makeupbymario).

I have a huge respect for Mario’s work ethic and can relate to his career path as we both dreamed big and made it happen for ourselves starting from nothing. Mario talks about how he met Kim Kardashian and became her key makeup artist, how he uses social media to grow his profile and how he grew his masterclass to be the biggest sellout makeup class in the world.
