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!
