5 Simple Steps to Elizabeth’s Look

After prepping the skin, I used By Terry Brightening CC Serum to give that natural glow from within, followed by Becca Cosmetics Aqua Luminous Foundation. I love this foundation for a medium coverage as it leaves the skin looking radiant.
For eyes I used a mixture of 2 palettes, Nars’ Summer Lights Face Palette & Persona Cosmetics Identity 2 palette. They both have some great warm bronze tones to brighten up blue eyes.
After using some Brow Balm from Makeup Weapons, I just filled them in with Anastasia Brow Definer in Taupe.
On her lips I used Sunnies Face Fluff Matte Lip in Milkshake.
She already has great lashes so I used Loreal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and curled them with an eyelash curler for a super natural look.
That’s how you get the Elizabeth Jamrozy look, it’s really that simple! mwah x x x

Who is Lauren Grace? I am a lifestyle blogger and digital content creator from Kent, London I also own a creation studio called Monday The Studio. I’m a serial dressing gown wearer and I love anything to do with leopards.

Where do you find inspiration? My daily inspiration is found on Pinterest or Instagram but I’m always on the hunt for inspo whether that’s in my surroundings while travelling, exhibitions and art galleries. I will also always love magazines, Im a monthly Vogue hoarder!

Define your style? Comfy, classic with a dash of oversized cool.

Go to cocktail? A Hugo! It is a combo of Prosecco, elderflower and sparkling water with lime and mint. So refreshing!

Best thing about living in London? I actually live just outside of London in Kent, which is the countryside so I would say the best thing about living here is the space and tranquility. If I was to move closer to the city I would say the best thing would be Deliveroo and the ease of having everything so near to you!

City or beach? This is so hard but I think city. I love a city break with a roof top pool!

What’s a day off in London like for you? A day off in London is filled with searching stores for new in pieces, maybe grabbing an oat milk chai latte, reading a book in a cafe and people watching!

Boys, how does a BBY GRL conquer them? You definitely have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince. Don’t settle for anyone and stay true to yourself!

Life hacks? In the winter put your clothes on the radiator before you go to sleep, when you wake up and it’s freezing your outfit is a mini hot water bottle. I used to do this all my way through school in the winter, such a winner.

3 products that save your life? Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, Lano Lips Lip Balm, Christophe Robin Detangling Spray.

If you were in a movie who would you be? I would definitely be the protagonist perhaps a detective solving a crime. I love anything to do with crime.

Favourite STESSO product and how would you style it? My favourite STESSO piece is the Valletta Trousers I would wear this with a racer back white vest top and an oversized blazer with strappy heels and chunky gold jewellery.
