About the Artist
Lauren is a Nanaimo based makeup artist and stylist 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 began Lauren MacLean Esthetics and Makeup Artistry in 2010. Since then, Lauren has continued her education in 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. Lauren has mastered the art of creating flawless hair and makeup looks that are individualized to each client's features, preference, and personality. Lauren is always thrilled to deliver requested services in the most comfortable and fun way!
Lauren has a degree in nursing, and continues to work as an RN in both dialysis and post anesthetic recovery. Most recently, Lauren completed her nurse injector training and is an aesthetic nurse at Rise Medical Aesthetics in Nanaimo, BC.
Lauren loves people. Although seemingly an extrovert, at the end of the day, she remains a homebody where she comes home to her loving husband and three fur babies.
