Hosts (and friends) Jessica Matlin and Jennifer Goldstein bring you the big, juicy, world of beauty on their award-winning weekly podcast. With day jobs as beauty editors, Jess & Jenn are plugged in to the industry's latest news and share their inside access along with candid stories of their beauty adventures, from celebrity interviews and freaky new facials to miracle products and epic beauty fails. Each week, they also get advice from their favorite people in the beauty business, including influencers (Olivia Wilde, Miranda Kerr, Jaclyn Hill, Emily Weiss, Kat Von D, Christian Louboutin, Bianca Del Rio, Patrick Starrr), makeup artists (Mario Dedivanovic, Lucia Pica, Sir John, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown), hair stylists (Serge Normant, Jawara, Orlando Pita, Ursula Stephen, Frederic Fekkai), and other industry experts like dermatologists, colorists, manicurists, perfumers, and more. Delivered with a heavy dose of fun—and consistently ranked as the #1 beauty and fashion podcast on iTunes—Fat Mascara is where beauty obsessives can get their fix.

Jessica Matlin decided she was a beauty editor at age 9 when she self-published her own beauty magazine—unfortunately, distribution didn’t reach much further than her parents. As a teen, she studied Kevyn Aucoin’s Making Faces instead of SAT Prep. It was job training: She has since been an editor at W and Allure, and worked with luxe beauty retailer Space NK in London. She's currently the beauty director at Harper's Bazaar. While Jess covers all areas of the industry, she’s particularly obsessed with skincare (exchanging rapid-fire emails with the world’s biggest derms) and fragrance—her ability to identify the notes in the latest perfume launch (from celeb to super-niche) is sort of insane.
Jennifer Goldstein got her start in beauty as a cashier at a perfume store in West Philly, and since then she’s worked at Sephora.com and as an editor at numerous magazines, including Marie Claire, where she’s currently the beauty director and features editor. In her quest to uncover beauty secrets, Jenn's gotten inked by a Maori tattoo artist in New Zealand, harvested shea nuts with women in Ghana, raided the road shops of Korea, and squeezed enzyme-rich eggs from salmon in Norway. She can pluck eyebrows like a pro and has read the FDA’s entire 46-page monograph on sunscreen labeling and effectiveness—but she still can’t get liquid eyeliner to look the same on both eyes.
