Lauren Conrad has launched a beauty site!

Well her reality TV show fell through but this hasn't slowed down the fashion designer/New York Times best-selling author (yup that is accurate). This week she launched a beauty website called, cleverly, "The Beauty Department." The site is a collaboration between Conrad, makeup artist Amy Nadine and hair stylist Kristen Ess. The intro to the site says:

This is a site for anyone who’s ever had a beauty question or gotten into a fight with a hair brush and lost. We’ll be covering all kinds of hair+makeup how-to’s, nail trends, skin issues, tools, current obsessions & inspirations, as well as countless quick tips.
The site actually has some pretty useful daily tips for cute hairstyles and makeup (if they can teach me how to do those cute little braids that Lauren rocked towards the end of The Hills I would be ever so grateful). Plus as a girl who really knows nothing about makeup it could be a great asset for me.

Sadly I was actually looking forward to Lauren's reality show because I truly enjoyed The Hills (the first few years) and I think she is a smart girl who has made quite a career for herself. Instead somehow we ended up with the Audrina Partridge show. Seriously television? We said no to the girl who is actually writing books and designing clothes for the girl who was best known for being the "non-blond one on The Hills" and the person who introduced the world to Justin Bobby. And for that we reward her with a television show in which we now get to see all her family members who make Audrina look like a member of Mensa.
Bonus: Years ago I found this hilarious parody sketch of The Hills from MadTv that was so spot on it was ridiculous. You must watch. Ugh except YouTube isn't letting me so I had to post this one which is still pretty funny.
