There are few beauty TV series that hit the nail on the head in terms of popularity—we’re always left wanting more. But, supermodel and beauty guru Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s latest project might be the next cure-all for our beauty series dry spell. Her new mini series, About Face, is premiering on Quibi August 10 and we’re all about it.
The show highlights some of the industry’s top entrepreneurs—we’re talking Emily Weiss of Glossier, Jet Atkin of Ouai, Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty and Kylie Jenner (no explanation needed)—and its main purpose is to act as a source of motivation and education for young aspiring beauty professionals.
According to Yahoo!, Huntington-Whitley flew across the world to get the inside scoop. The furthest destination: Dubai—Kattan’s home city—to meet the beauty mogul in person and interview her on everything beauty related. “Huda’s tenacity and passion for building a brand in a part of the globe that, at the time of her launch, didn’t necessarily embrace a female founder, only pushed her to work harder and made her laser-focused on growing a billion-dollar global company,” Huntington-Whiteley says. This is the behind-the-scenes that those looking for inspiration need to hear.

But, the mini series highlights more than just founders. It also features influential artists—like celebrity makeup artist Sir John who works with stars like Beyoncé—and creatives that inspire the industry. “Sir John’s interview is a stand out for me,” says Huntington-Whiteley. “He’s done my makeup several times over the years, but listening to him speak about his artistry and how he approaches each face with such intention—he’s such a powerful storyteller.”
