BEAUTY CHAT with Lauren Rae: Exploring the Playful Palette of Black Beauty, One Ginger Shot and Brow Gel at a Time.

This week, we invite you to join us on a journey into the beauty secrets, favourite hacks, and deeply personal reflections of influential black voices. Today, we enter the world of Lauren Rae, a writer and copywriter based in Europe, known by her instagram handle @imnotawriterrr.

Through these candid conversations, we delve into the realms of self-care, makeup rituals, and the intimate connections individuals share with their beauty routines. Each interview is a unique carousel ride, offering glimpses into the lives of those who weave their stories through the fabric of beauty, emphasising that beauty is not just a canvas to be adorned but a powerful form of self-expression.

What is your beauty secret?

Recently, I’ve been starting each day with a ginger shot every morning. I’ve seen subtle changes in my skin and body, but namely I’ve experienced fewer breakouts and smoother, clearer skin.

What’s your favourite beauty hack and why?

I’m pretty sure everyone does this now, but my brows are the only part of my makeup routine that I really take my time with, and my favourite hack is using a face wipe to clean up and perfect the arches before applying brow gel.

What is the beauty product you cannot live without?

Got2Be brow gel, I would be nothing without it.

When do you feel the most beautiful?

Probably when getting glam for a night out with my pals. There’s something about posing with my phone in the mirror that makes me feel hot enough to tackle the actual night out.

What does Black beauty mean to you?

Happiness and freedom of expression.
