Aerin Lauder, Estee Lauder’s granddaughter, is creating her own beauty empire with her eponymous lifestyle brand that encompasses everything from bronzer to bowls. We recently met at Chicago’s Trump hotel to chat and go over the new holiday collection. To my surprise, I realized Aerin and I have more in common than just beauty. We both have two boys and we both get calls from our moms a lot. The latter came to light when we were about to start the interview, and just as I was getting ready to hit record on my iPhone, "mom cell" popped up on my screen. While I did ignore her call (sorry mom!), it did lead to a laugh at the end of the interview. Watch the video to see Aerin’s signature entertaining tips, favorite design finds and more.
