We love beauty, you love beauty, so we thought it would be a nice idea to let you guys get to know us a little better. And when we say us, we mean the whole team behind Latest in Beauty, because we’re a pretty awesome bunch! A lot of work and dedication goes into bringing you the best selection of products to try each month, and behind the scenes, our team is constantly working hard to source beauty treats that we know you guys will love.

So, you want to delve a bit deeper into LiB and find out who we are? Keep reading. We’re talking deep and personal here guys, it’s riveting stuff. Well, kinda. Today we’re introducing you to our Digital Marketing Executive, Ellie.

Where are you from?
Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

What’s your role at LiB?
I am LIB’s Digital Marketing Executive. This basically means I create all the emails you guys receive, if you’re signed up to our newsletter (if you’re not, then DO IT NOW. Just kidding… kind of). I’m also one half of our photography team, along with Jemma our Social Media Manager & Editor (who writes this blog by the way if you haven’t guessed). In addition to this, I look after all photo editing, and day-to-day website management.

What’s on your desk?
My desk is a tad messy to be honest. I have what is essentially a spice cabinet on one side (cinnamon, turmeric, Moroccan salt etc), several notebooks, an array of stationary, and a tonne of beauty products. I also have the office Orgasmatron – that’s one of those head-massager things just to clarify – which everyone takes turns using when they need a lil 5 minute break.

Describe yourself in three emojis

Your colleagues would describe you as…
Sassy AF + always hungry.

What are you most likely to have for lunch?
Pret – I’ve eaten pretty much everything they make, it’s becoming a worrying addiction.

Your go to makeup look is…
Nice and natural, maybe some winged liner if I’m feeling fancy.

Any beauty sins?
Probably not washing my makeup brushes often enough (I feel like everyone is guilty of this right?!)

Office pet peeve?
The thermostat being turned right down – I’m always freezing.

Name 3 favourite BYOB products (Build Your Own Box, FYI)


Living Proof Healthy Hair 5-in-1 styling treatment – I seriously cannot rave about this product enough – my hair is not my hair without it. I’m a fan of Living Proof in general as their products always tend to deliver on promises, and this styling treatment is my absolute fave. It gives hair texture, thickness, and shine.

Cowshed Gorgeous Cow Body Lotion – Looking at this, you’d think it would have quite a floral smell, and I’m not big on florals. However, (thankfully) it smells nothing like rose or lavender, it actually smells like sherbet – quite sweet, a little bit fruity, and DIVINE. Plus it’s super moisturising.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Moisturiser – I’m pretty fussy about what I put on my face, a lot of moisturisers I find are too thick and make me break out. That’s why I was so happy to discover this one from Malin + Goetz. It’s really light and fast-absorbing, but still provides plenty of hydration. It’s also great for any sensitive skin types.
