Congratulations! A YouTube Beauty Guru is Now Engaged to a Popular Internet Star
Although Marcus Johns and Kristin Lauria got engaged at the end of June, people are just now starting to catch on to the exciting news. Even though the 20-year-old beauty guru was “kind of nervous to post” a vlog from the pair’s European vacation, including the moment when the 23-year-old asked her to be his wife, she decided to share the exciting day over the weekend.
“Then we climbed to the top of a tower where I was met with the happiest surprise of my life,” she prefaced the proposal.
While Kristin’s 160,000+ subscribers were surprised at the announcement, both her and Marcus’ social media followers had known the news for weeks. Back on June 25, the Vine star tweeted a picture of him down on one knee with a caption that promised he’d love her “forever and always.”

The brunette beauty also first shared her excitement on social media, choosing to upload a post-engagement photo that read, “There’s no one else I would rather experience the rest of my life with than you!”
The now-engaged duo both attended Florida State University (where it can be assumed they met) and started dating in early 2014. Although they typically keep their YouTube/Vine lives separate from their IRL experiences, they can frequently be found on each other’s Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Congratulation to the happy couple!
Kristin and Marcus met before they blew up on social media, but these couples have the Internet to thank for their relationships:
Zoe Sugg & Alfie Deyes
Although Alfie and Zoe both attended the same YouTube party back in July 2012, they didn't officially meet until August 2012 at another YT event called Summer in the City (Zoe actually waited on line to meet her future BF and his pal Marcus Butler)! The pair quickly became friends, and frequently collaborated together and were featured in each other's vlogs. Many fans began to speculate that Zalfie was a thing, but the YouTubers didn't confirm their romantic relationship until August 2013, when their friend Jim Chapman accidentally outed them by showing a photo of them smooching in one of his vlogs — OOPS! But even though the start to their romance was a bit ~unique~ Zoe and Alfie have now been dating for almost three years, live together in England, and have an adorable little puppy named Nala. #GOALS
