She's always enjoyed showing others how to use makeup to bring out their best features and to help them feel special.So she came up with the idea of uploading how-to videos onto YouTube to show others how to bring out the best in themselves with makeup and how to recreate their favourite celebrity looks. Lauren had no idea the videos would have such an impact on her life:"What happened next was something I never ever imagined. I uploaded my first video Sunday 22nd of July 2007 and the minute it went live I sat scared, trembling in my chair, wondering 'will people see it?' and 'what will they say?' Well, all I can say is on that day I must have been the luckiest girl alive because I was soon flooded with huge amounts of views and comments, and best of all, I felt like I was making a connection with other girls out there like me, regular girls."Now, with her book LOOKS and her brand new makeup range, Lauren is on a mission to give the beauty industry a wake up call and celebrate real women everywhere!
