"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"."
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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."
"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."
