Welcome to Makeup and Beauty Blog! My name is Karen. I’m a freelance writer obsessed with makeup, and my favorite brand is MAC.

Makeup and Beauty Blog features daily product reviews, makeup tips and beauty news — kinda like an interactive version of a monthly print magazine, except with occasional pictures of my cat. :)

After more than six years online, Makeup and Beauty Blog is still going strong! Now one of the hottest, most respected beauty blogs in America, it’s a fixture in the niche, receiving more than 900,000 visits/month.

Some of my favorite hangouts online: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, , Vimeo (old school) and YouTube

On top of everything else, you’ll find a vibrant community here and some of the nicest people (and cats) online. Your comments aren’t just welcome, they’re adored (more than 400,000 reader comments to date).
