Mouth-Off Episode 4: Only skin deep

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This week in the Mouth-Off series we interview makeup artist and celebrity hairstylist Mikey Phillips. In Episode 4: Only skin deep, Mikey chats about the trials and tribulations of life in an industry thought to be dominated by women. He also discusses his 'rags to riches' story; starting out as closeted gay boy living in the Welsh valleys (who dreamed of pop stardom) and going on to establish himself as a national and international makeup artist and hairstylist to the stars.

Mouth-Off Episode 8: Trolling for laughs? Bully for you!

In this episode of Mouth-Off, Clary interviewed 14 year old singer, actor, and aspiring songwriter (and member of the singing group GENERATION Z) OLIVIA LYNN. We were also joined by her mum Peri Lynn. We spoke about Olivia's passion for music, her musical influences and her hopes for the future. We also had a very open discussion about the issues that Olivia has had with physical and emotional bullying and cyberbullying - while using online platforms such as Instagram and TikTok to promote her music.
