The 28 year old British mother and cosmetic entrepreneur -- she sells her namesake line, By Lauren Luke, at Sephora -- is sending us a photo diary from every stop of the inspirations for her future cosmetic creations.
Yesterday, we slurped margies and went pool hopping in Miami.
Today, it's The Big Easy, and the saturated colors, creole cottages and oyster bars that come with it.
And tomorrow, we'll see Luke's ho-down in Austin, Texas.
Click through the gallery to see Luke's New Orleans inspirations and get her take on each.
And for more on Luke, visit her own site for the lowdown on exclusive looks she created for Sephora appearances in many of the cities she visited.
Lauren Luke's Inspiration Nation Road Trip, New Orleans
"I love the colors of the steps, the rich purple against the aqua blue. Everything about this is just picture-postcard perfect. I love the roofs as well. It looks like there's been pride that's gone into building these houses."
