Everything You Need to Know About Makeup and Skincare Guru Laura Lee
As one of the original beauty influencers, Laura Lee is well-known for a reason.

She's been in the digital beauty space for over nine years now, having built a name for herself by sharing plenty of makeup looks and how-to videos. Nowadays, you'll also find her testing tons of skincare and makeup products from TikTok and Instagram ads (helping her followers find out which ones are actually worth the money) and hosting the beauty and pop culture podcast "Fool Coverage" with co-host Manny MUA.
But the impressiveness of Laura Lee and her incredible career doesn't end there. She's also the founder and owner of two successful brands: the cosmetics brand Laura Lee Los Angeles and the fashion brand Nudie Patootie.

Name: Laura Lee
Birthday: September 1
Zodiac sign: Virgo
1. Laura wishes she'd stopped caring about other people's opinions of her earlier on.
"I wish I learned to not care what others think as much. It's a lot easier to do what you want to do when you're not worried about what other people are going to think of you."
2. HBO's Peacemaker is the show she's binged most recently.
"It is absolutely hilarious (a must watch)!"
3. She's as much of a Harry Styles stan as the rest of us, and even said that his concert was the best she's ever attended.
"I took my 18-year-old niece and we danced and screamed all night long! Concerts make the best memories. He just announced he's releasing a new album. I'm on the edge of my seat! I am a huge Harry fan!"
4. One thing she's not such a big fan of? Snakes. In fact, she calls them her biggest phobia.
"Maybe it's just a fear of one biting me. Yikes!"
5. Despite living in L.A., she's not such a big fan of seafood, either.
"I don't like seafood, and living in L.A., everyone wants to have sushi for dinner. I think I'm the only person left in L.A. that does not eat sushi. Send help!"
6. She has a cool trick she can do with her elbows.
"My elbows are super double-jointed, so any time I hold them up and share their weird bend, people scream! I love the reaction. As far as hobbies, I am an Uno card game champ! It's hard to beat me!"

7. Her favorite color is mint green.
"Mint green is the most calming, relaxing color I've ever seen. Oddly enough, it brings me peace."
8. She's worked really hard to perfect the art of making people feel heard:
"My biggest charter quirk is always making eye contact and engaging when people speak to me. I know this seems like a simple character quirk, but it's something I've worked on personally and I think people really appreciate it. Living in L.A. and continuously attending events, people can feel unheard or not noticed, and I always want them to feel comfortable and feel like I care about what they have to say."
9. She's a big fan of her home state's college football teams.
"I'm from Alabama, so naturally, I'm a huge Alabama football fan! I watch every game of the season. I love college football and the passion behind it."
10. Above all else, Laura's a true people person through and through.
"I think to the core of me I'm a light-hearted person that loves people. I love being social, laughing, and I love the energy of good people. I thrive off of it."
