"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."
"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."
"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 have known Renelyn since she was 8. With her educational background, she could have been a doctor, a writer, a lawyer, a rocket scientist even, seriously. However, Ren has always been an artist at heart, with a passion for make up design. She approaches each face like a canvas. She gets to know her subject in little time and works from there. 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! Ren designed my full facial makeup for my daughter Alexandra's wedding. Well, the result was absolutely spectacular, 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."
"Meticulously beautiful! I was so impressed with the level of professionalism, attention to detail and genuine ability to create a look that was perfect for me."
"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 birthday makeup for a Vegas Girls Trip & made me look flawless! I don't usually wear much makeup daily anyway, so I didn't want to look overly done or too subtle. I was looking for a perfect balance between glam and enhanced natural features in little time. It turned out perfect - see for yourself!"
