Hey, I'm Renelyn!
ATLANTA'S TOP MAKEUP ARTIST + BEAUTY INFLUENCER AND EDUCATOR
I was born in Cali, raised in Florida and now call Atlanta, GA home. I first moved to ATL in 2001 to attend Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. After entering corporate America, I felt like there was a missing piece to my creative side. I created my Beauty Blog in 2007 to fill a gap in the beauty industry. As an everyday consumer, I could not find products or artists that suited my ethnic features. I decided to fill this void by creating a blog catering to women of all ethnicities, ages, and walks of life.
My blog reached international success, and I expanded Makeup By Ren Ren, the blog, to include video reviews and makeup tutorials on YouTube. I've partnered with major cosmetic companies as a brand ambassador to offer makeup reviews, product development, and to host events for readers. After a great positive response to my work online, I entered into a professional career in Freelance Makeup working in every avenue from Bridal to Fashion, TV and Celebrity work.
I gained my Masters in Business Degree from Georgia State University in 2012. I combine my business expertise with my full time makeup career to elevate professionalism in the beauty arena. In 2017 I expanded my focus on makeup artist education as co-owner of Industry Makeup Academy in Atlanta.

"I have had the pleasure of Ren doing my make up for several special occasions. And, each time her artistry has gone above and beyond my expectations! I have also had a private make up tutorial with her where she recommended products, color palettes and make up application techniques. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a professional make up artist."
"I am not sure if words can truly express how amazing Ren is. She will exceed your expectations in every way. From our very first meeting when I met Ren, she was so friendly, I felt so comfortable with her and I just knew she would be awesome!
If I had to describe her in a few words I would say, "Natural,Subtle or
Bold, Daring, and always Classy"."
Ren is a consummate professional who is always experimenting to maintain her originality; and I must also mention how she is SUPER clean and impeccably maintains her tools! I received many compliments. I, myself, could not believe the face I was seeing in the mirror; it was me but a 10 times improved version. I will not trust my face to anyone else."
Ren is a gifted makeup artist, she appreciates all 50 shades of brown. Her knowledge on different skin tones resonates in her make up skills. Ren has a MBA so she does her due diligence! She will collect information on your make up preferences, outfit, event, skin tone, and most importantly cultural customs before creating a look for you.
