Lauren Conrad might have gotten her start on reality shows like Laguna Beach and The Hills, but she definitely has chosen to use her fame to support a cause that is far more real: Dating Abuse. Apart from being an aspiring fashion designer, writer of two books, a beauty trend setter and constant fix on style sites, she has teamed up with mark cosmetics to create m.powerment by mark. This initiative was launched to help educate young women about abusive relationships and how to seek help.
With the help of her makeup artist Amy Nadine, LC created two lip-glosses, the m.powerment gold and m.powerment peach shades, the net proceeds of which will go directly to the m.powerment fund. LC personally admits to wearing the gold gloss often over lipstick to add shine or her bare lips for a nude look. I found this shade volumizing on my lips as well because of the reflective gold pigment.
Lauren Conrad also helped to create the mark Have a Heart Necklace and matching bracelet (new), which make great gift items. LC has been spotted in the scene wearing the Have a Heart Necklace, like at the debut of the Lauren Conrad Spring 2009 collection at LA Fashion Week.
Pick up the necklace for $22, bracelet for $12 and lip gloss for $6 at www.shop.meetmark.com.
