About Me

Hi there, my name is Lauren and I am the Mascarateer!  I am in my mid-20's and only really started to embrace makeup within the last couple of years.  My hobby became an obsession and I was urged by many friends to consider starting a blog so I  could share my passion and possibly justify my spending!

I've blogged on and off for as long as I can remember but only as a hobby blogger.  I hope to stick to my guns and utilise my blog as a great way to learn, share and meet other bloggers or makeup lovers.

Outside of makeup and blogging, I enjoy playing video games, listening to Korean pop music and bumming around on the internet.  Most of my interests are very lazy and I am quite the hermit, A lot of my make up looks are shot in trackpants and I often neglect styling my clothes!

Why Mascarateer?  Originally I was going to be part of a three-person blog and we were trying to think of a name that would be makeup related but might also include the fact that we were a trio.  I jokingly came up with the idea of The Three Mascarateers, it was pretty lame but I got a good chuckle out of it.  In the end I ended up creating a solo blog and the name stuck.  I wanted a name that stood out, was easy to remember and wasn't already being used!
