6 British Beauty Secrets I Learned From Jude Law's Teenage Daughter


Burberry/Angelo Pennetta

The first thing that surprises me is the sound of her voice.

I don't know what I was expecting—the overzealous squeals of a Los Angeles teenager, perhaps. Whatever the reason, it truly did not occur to me before dialing London's Hotel Café Royal that Iris Law, the 16-year-old daughter of actor Jude Law and the new face of Burberry Beauty, would, of course, have an English accent. "Thank you so much for talking to me!" are the first words out of my fanatical American mouth. "Oh, that's alright," she responds, dainty and muted. We are 10 seconds into our conversation, and already the teenage model, whom Harper's Bazaar has deemed "the next Lily-Rose Depp," is infinitely cooler than I.

Iris's debut as Britain's new model to watch comes with the launch of Burberry's Liquid Lip Velvet ($34), a buildable matte lip color available now on Burberry.com. Iris has gotten to know these 14 saturated lippies very well over the course of her time with the campaign. She uses them for everything: her everyday makeup, upscale events, she even hacks them into cream eye shadows (but we'll get to that later).

That's the second thing that surprises me about Iris: Hearing someone so young (and so British) talk about makeup is like having an alien from a more enlightened species school me on what having an individual beauty identity really means. There are no rules with Iris—from the inventive ways she uses products to the sources she looks to for beauty inspiration, she seems to operate on pure instinct. 

Before the world turns this wide-eyed Brit into a superstar, get a sense of who she really is now. Read on to discover five of Iris Law's fascinating, uncensored beauty secrets.
