Review

Lauren Luke is a sensation! Vanity Fair Lauren Luke is a one-woman success machine and she's done it all from the bedroom of her flat...Just as they have with fellow YouTube sensation Susan Boyle fans of her products have become equally entranced by the story of Lauren herself. Her genuine enthusiasm and likeability have made her a virtual friend to millions, her videos compulsive viewing even for those who don't wear makeup. Herald Sun - Australia **** Zest

About the Author

Lauren uploaded her first video onto YouTube on 22nd July 2007. She had no idea that she would soon become the most viewed YouTube user in the UK, with her own newspaper column, a Nintendo game and even her own makeup range! Lauren hasn't let her incredible success go to her head though, and she still lives with her 10-year-old son, Jordan, her mum, sister, twin teenage nieces and five highly affectionate dogs in their house in South Shields, Tyneside.

I'll be the first to say that I'm likely to enjoy anything that miss Lauren Luke puts out, but I'm a huge fan. I love her videos as well as her makeup (which I highly recommend. Now, I DID like this book, which is why I have given it 4 stars. However, there are certainly cons to this book.

PROS:
-colorful, fun design. The layout is fantastic!
-Love the introduction. It was great to read a little more about Lauren's story.
-The varied amount of looks. There were options for school, work, a party, clubbing, a date etc. I felt as if I had plenty of options, especially for day looks.
-The looks themselves. They are do-able, and almost every one I have tried has come out great.

CONS:
-The celebrity pictures used to give examples of the looks sometimes don't even match the makeup that Lauren is doing. While not a HUGE deal, it sort of annoyed me to see a picture of Vanessa Hudgens wearing brown eyeshadow and then being told we're copying her look by doing purple. Surely it wouldn't have been hard to find a photo of celebrity wearing the look we're actually doing...
-I love Lauren's videos because she always seems to use colors/products that are available to me. I have an extensive makeup collection and even some of the primers/colors/products asked for were not things I had access to.
-The flow of the instructions is a bit jumbled in places. I wasn't sure which step came first!

Overall, I really did enjoy this book. I'll continue to use it. It was worth my money, for sure. But, I love Lauren and I've come to expect GREAT from her. I'll always prefer her videos, but for a fan, this book is a nice thing to own :)

The pics shown in the item description are the same pages from her other book, "Lauren Luke Looks." I don't know if that's a mistake or what. Just thought I'd mention it. I'd hate to think she wrote 2 books that are identical. Does anybody know?

I think this girl is great, but went through the book once and found that I get more from her videos than the book. I bought her Vintage Makeup, which is great. Not enough close ups in the book. I thought there would be matching videos to match each makeup kit, but not yet. Disappointed, so I will keep watching the videos, because that's where she shines.
