The TOWIE star talks beauty secrets, fake tan and bridal top-tips
Lauren Goodger - star of hit reality show The Only Way Is Essex - is more than just a TV star: she's also a beauty whiz, who has transformed her passion for all things make-up into a business.
Here, Lauren talks make-up must-haves, bridal beauty and hen parties...
What's your beauty must-have?
Wearing lots of make-up for filming does tend to clog my pores and inevitably cause the dreaded spots. I’ve found that using Sudocreme is amazing for clearing them up! I also use it after waxing. I love the MAC range - and I love my bronzer!
What can brides-to-be do in the run-up to their big day to ensure their skin and hair is healthy and gorgeous?
I think diet is really important when it comes to having healthy skin and hair. Looking good on the outside always starts with feeling good on the inside, so what you eat and drink in the run-up to the big day is important.
What was the inspiration behind the Lauren's Way range?
I simply love beauty. I love nothing more than getting glammed up and I wanted to share that amazing feel-good factor with women regardless of their size, age or anything else. For me, looking good and feeling good go hand-in-hand.
HOW TO: CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
What beauty tips/tricks have you discovered?
Preparation is key! Always make sure that you exfoliate and moisturise before you tan - it makes your skin the perfect canvas for a gorgeous glow. Another tanning tip I've learned: make sure you brush your teeth before tanning, otherwise you might be left with tell-tale white marks!
What is the best wedding you'd ever been to?
I would have to say Jade Goody’s wedding [in 2009] was amazing! Jade was such a great person and I feel very privileged to have been able to share that day with her.
Let's talk hen-parties...
To be honest, I haven’t actually been to many hen-nights as most of my friends are unmarried! But I think that your hen night should be about celebrating your single life, having a great time with your friends and forgetting about the worries and stresses of planning the wedding.
You recently left The Only Way Is Essex - what's next?
Since leaving TOWIE, I’ve really been concentrating on Lauren’s Way. It’s really exciting being a part of such a fun, fast growing brand and the amazing feedback we get every day from our happy customers and fans motivates me even more.
Lauren's Way is available to buy from selected Debenhams stores across the UK, and online.
