Lauren Luke Looks - new book!

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

I received my copy of  Lauren Luke Looks: 25 Celebrity and Everyday Makeup Tutorials the other day. I love all of the pictures and tips! Makeup is definitely her calling - she does incredible things! I also enjoyed reading the "This is Who I Am" section written by Lauren. She has truly done amazing things with her life and is a wonderful example of what is possible.

I really like the book. I'm the type of person who does best with a photo and a list of "what to use". I love Lauren's videos, but since I can't really watch a video while doing my makeup, the book will be such a help while I'm actually trying to "do" the look. I can keep the book by my makeup table for reference. You can watch her YouTube videos for step-by-step visuals and/or verbal instructions - and still use the book for reference.

I purchased my copy from for $14.96. I had $10 in credit on the site, and combined with my Amazon Prime membership (free 2 day shipping, yay!), my final cost was less than $5!

Places to find Lauren: Lauren's official website; on YouTube; on Facebook; on Twitter @panacea81 (Lauren) and @byLaurenLuke (Lauren's team); on Flickr; and on MySpace.

Anyone else a Lauren Luke fan?

You know I am! There is no type of person I respect more than the kind that can reach incredible heights of success and remain humble enough to talk to everyone as if they're best friends. I sent her a message on MySpace a while back and she replied like we'd met before and she knew exactly who I was. No generic auto-replies!

Another great line is Spell Cosmetics. That lady (Elle) is a total sweetheart. Like Lauren, she really listens to what her customers/fans want.

I was surprised at all she has overcome. I'm even more impressed after reading that!

I'll have to check out Spell Cosmetics - any specific recommendations?

Eclectic Musings said...

Yeah, Lauren has hinted at some of that stuff and I always wondered what exactly happened. I need to pick that book up sometime. I was just in the bookstore today and forgot about it.

I like their shadows (especially the Hologlow ones and Iponema Sand). I haven't tried their blushes, but I just ordered the one she suggested and I've heard good things about them.

I liked the foundation for a while, but then I decided it was too dark for me so I stopped using it.

The Wet N Set is awesome because you can use it like a liner pen (it looks like the packaging has changed from pen to bottle since I got mine but it's basically a mixing medium).

If you become a fan on Facebook, you can send her a pic and she'll give you a customized "makeover" via email. You can read more about that under the News section of You also get 25% off for 48 hours after the makeover.

Oh, cool! Thanks for the info - I'm going to check them out. Are they the ones you were buying brushes from, too?

Eclectic Musings said...

No, the brushes came from Sigma Cosmetics. I got one brush from Spell (powder brush) and wasn't really thrilled with it.

Oh, that's right - I knew it started with an "s", LOL!
