After having a lifelong love affair with fashion, beauty and travel, in 2014 Natalie Lucas brought all these passions together to create style blog From Luxe With Love. Having previously worked as both a model and makeup artist, Natalie had the perfect background to create a successful blog and Instablog… Two years and 75K followers later (and growing fast), Natalie has hit the ground running – with recent affiliations with the likes of Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Shopbop, and Burberry, just to name a few.
To get a glimpse into the person creating the perfect feed, Husskie decided to put Natalie into the firing line for our latest 50 Questions article – a regular series where we get top influencers to undertake a round of quick-fire questions (click here to read our first two articles with Saasha Burns and Lauren Curtis).
