Meaning & History

The word mascara is the francisation of the Arabic word معسكر (mouaskar), meaning “camp”. Due to French colonization at that time, the city's name has adopted the French version as an official name.

This is the name of the capital city of Mascara Province, in northwestern Algeria.
