Style Stories | Beauty Queen, Elizabeth

We don’t know about you, but we can’t keep up with beauty these days. We need someone to tell us, better yet show us, what’s gorgeous and game-changing now.

Enter Elizabeth Dehn, a lifestyle journalist turned beauty blogger whose easy, friend-to-friend tone and impeccable eye for prettiness has earned her 4.7 million followers on Pinterest.

We caught up with Elizabeth yesterday to give you a glimpse of her world:

Where do you live?

Minneapolis, MN

How long have you been blogging?

Three years, but it feels like forever!

Why did you decide to start your blog?

I was covering the beauty/wellness beat as the lifestyle editor of a magazine and couldn’t get enough. I started the blog as a creative outlet and medium for all of the beauty musings I couldn’t fit on the pages. My goal was to have fun and learn a few new skills, but it became so much more. Blogging (and engaging in social media) has introduced me to some amazingly talented people and opened up so many doors in a field that I love. It’s also confirmed that I can’t write at home in my stretchy pants all day. I need human interaction and to feel a part of something bigger—which is why I still work as an editor, and jump at any chance to partner with brands and people.

What did you wear today? What was your outfit inspiration?

leopard cardigan with a striped top and chunky rhinestone necklace. Stripes were my uniform before they were cool, but J.Crew and Pinterest have inspired me to mix and match patterns.

What is your favorite day of the week and why?

Saturday because it’s the one day of the week I break from all email, social media, and work!

Coffee or tea?

Soy latte in the morning, herbal detox tea at night.

Early bird or night owl?

Both! And it’s a problem, especially when 6 a.m. rolls around for spin class. I’ve decided I just need one more hour every day and life would be perfect.

Smoky eyes or bold lip?

I love a matte red lip for day (MAC Ruby Woo) with a little eyeliner, and a smoky eye with a nude lip for night.

Dog person or cat lover?

I am officially one of “those” dog people since getting our white lab Molly Thomas (named after my father-in-law, who shares her birthday). She completely changed my life. And the frequency with which I need to vacuum.

Silver or gold?

Gold. And pearls!

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Salted caramel.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I’m an editor by day, and it’s the 12 brilliant, kind and hilarious women on my team who get me out of bed each morning.

What is your favorite downtime activity?

I’m a hedonist so there are quite a few: reading, travelling, running, a movie with Mr. Bets, a day at the spa, and champagne with the girls.

Don’t miss Elizabeth’s fall beauty wish list—picks so good they’ll see you through spring.
