'I just love colour! I have always been excited by colourful make-up and the endless amount of different looks you can create with it. I love the way it can bring out the best in everyone.'
Lauren Luke is an internet phenomenon. Her make-up tutorials, filmed in her bedroom in South Shields near Newcastle, have attracted a staggering 36 million [and counting...] hits on YouTube.
Growing up, Lauren had a tough time at school and began experimenting with makeup to fit in. And so began a lifelong love affair with cosmetics and the art of transformation. One day she decided to share her passion with friends online and became a sensation.
The great thing about Lauren is she is just an ordinary 27 year old woman - but arm her with a glittery eye shadow and a shimmer lip-gloss and she can show you how to show off your best features or recreate Cheryl Cole or Leona Lewis' latest look in ten minutes flat. Everyone has bits they love about their face, and other parts they'd rather conceal, and Lauren will show you how to make the most of what you've got.
Just like sitting down with your best friend for a makeover session, Lauren's book is brimming with fresh ideas and packed with insider beauty tips and tricks of the trade.
