Welcome to Makeup and Beauty Blog!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 eight 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 makeup reviews niche.

Some of my favorite hangouts online are…Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, , YouTube and connorclaire.com, the home of my lifestyle brand.

On top of everything else — the fabulousness, felines and fun — 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 470,000 reader comments to date).
