About the Artist


Lauren is a Nanaimo based makeup artist and registered nurse injector who has been in the beauty business since 2007. She is a self proclaimed perfectionist who pays attention to every detail. This perfectionism carries over into every service provided. Priding herself on her ability to have an eye for beauty, her greatest joy is to unveil the unique beauty she sees in each and every one of her clients. 


Lauren began her venture in 2007 receiving her diploma in Esthetics and Makeup Artistry from the Aveda Institute in Victoria, BC. After working as an esthetician and makeup artist for three years, Lauren decided she wanted to be a nurse injector and work with deeper levels of the skin. Lauren began Lauren MacLean Esthetics and Makeup Artistry in 2010, the same year she started nursing school. While studying, Lauren continued to work with Brides and their party's providing airbrush makeup application, bridal makeup application and hair artistry. 


In 2022 and 2023 Lauren was nominated as Nanaimo's Favourite Makeup Artist and took home Platinum. The same year Lauren completed her certification in neuromodulator and filler injectables from The Canadian Association of Medical Aesthetics and was mentored by Laura MacIntyre (FNP) at Rise Medical Aesthetics in Nanaimo, BC. She then became the newest nurse injector at Rise Medical Aesthetics. Lauren has mastered the art of highlighting her clients' unique beauty that considers each client's features, preference, and personality. Lauren is always thrilled to deliver requested services in the most comfortable and fun way!
