Elizabeth Dehn


Born and raised in the Twin Cities by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, Elizabeth Dehn spent her awkward years wearing Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before earing a BA in Communications from Wake Forest University (go Deacs!) and embarking on a well-curated career that has included Aveda, Target, Northwest Airlines, Nordstrom, and Minnesota Monthly. Now an editorial director for MSP-C by day and editor of the award-winning blog by night, Elizabeth spills her beauty secrets monthly for Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. When she's not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?), or presiding as the 19th most powerful pinner in the world, according to BuzzFeed, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.

Inspired by the circular red welts Michael Phelps sported at the Olympics, our beauty editor gives the age-old practice a try. more
