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.

Rave Reviews

"Before the makeup industry learned to appreciate other cultures beauty features, before makeup manufactures recognized other shades of browns, and before contouring was a phenomenon there was REN. As the quote goes “Ren been doing all of this and some”. In retrospect it sounds like NBD, but 5 years ago someone of my skin tone had to blend 3 shades of foundation to get a match. 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. You will never hear Ren mention anything about latest make up trends, because for her it’s all about you, your event, and your comfort level. I have used Ren several times in the last 5 years. I can’t even count how many times I have recommended her to friends/family. I live in LA now, and the last time I had an event in LA, I coordinated my event around her travel schedule…she is that GOOD!"

"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! 
She surprised me the day of my birthday and did my make up! She showed up early smiling with excitement! Ren is truly a professional artist. She made sure I was satisfied, she was on time, she communicated with me, very respectful, and most importantly we had so much fun. When she was done I looked absolutely flawless! Beyonce flawless! I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better than what she did. She is absolutely wonderful and has an amazing talent for what she does! I would highly recommend her to anyone. If I had to describe her in a few words I would say, "Natural,Subtle or
Bold, Daring, and always Classy"."

"Ren did my make-up for my wedding. I have combination skin which makes foundation selection so complicated. Ren dedicated a lot of time and effort into finding the perfect solution. She not only executed the vision I hoped for, but she made me feel so confident and incredibly beautiful on a day where make-up affects so much - your spirit, confidence, and photographs that live on for the rest of your life! I would highly recommend her and trust her as someone who is not only incredibly skilled at make-up, but as a person that cares about the clients that sit in front of her for such special occasions."
