Kirbie Johnson

Los Angeles

Hi! I'm Kirbie. I'm a host, producer and content creator, working on lifestyle, beauty and entertainment video content. I've been with POPSUGAR Studios since 2012, producing and writing over 1000 videos during my time with the company.

Currently, I host two shows: POPSUGAR Beauty Junkie and Pretty Unfiltered, a Youtube-centric show. I've interviewed tastemakers and stars like Sofia Vergara, Miley Cyrus, Khloé Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Zooey Deschanel, Dita Von Teese, Demi Lovato, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elton John, Ariana Grande and many more. My work has been featured on The Today Show, Buzzfeed,, Us Weekly, Huffington Post and Byrdie Beauty. I enjoy reporting from the red carpet and emceeing corporate and consumer events. I also work with brands (like Ulta, Sally Hansen, CBS, Benefit Cosmetics and more) to produce one-of-a-kind sharable sponsored content.

Born and raised in Texas, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science from TCU's Schieffer School of Journalism in Advertising and Public Relations, then packed up my life, stuffed it in my SUV, and headed out nine days after graduation to live in West Hollywood.

Before working on-camera, I wrote a national beauty column for and freelanced for FabFitFun, in addition to covering red carpets like The GRAMMYs, Elton John's Oscar Party, Microsoft and more.

Check out my blogs: Kirbie Goes to Hollywood, #EffinPresh and Mentervention, where I give commentary to men and the women who try to date them.

I'm a self-proclaimed sports, entertainment news, puppy and Starbucks enthusiast, and I believe was Nancy Drew in a past life. My first dance was in 7th grade with Matthew McConaughey, and after meeting author Emily Giffin, she incorporated my name as a character in her best-selling book Where We Belong. Chrissy Teigen follows me on Instagram and Twitter, and it's one of my best accomplishments to date.
