Hi Bellas,

Today's tutorial is perfect for spring - it's bronzey and peachy and really makes your skin glow.  I drew inspiration from J Lo's Peachy nude looks.  For the tutorial I used Senna Cosmetics Pastels Envelope.  If you haven't heard of this brand, you're really missing out.  They've been making a huge buzz on the Blogger/YouTube scene as well as all of my favorite magazines - Cosmo, Allure, and InStyle to name a few.

The line was founded by Emmy Award winning Celebrity Makeup Artist Eugenia Weston.  She's worked with famous faces including Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, and Jessica Simpson.  Personally, when a line is designed by another Makeup Artist, I tend to trust their products a bit more.  You can tell that she has designed the makeup to be easy to use for both pro artists and the everyday woman.  Not only did Eugenia create Senna Cosmetics, but you might have also heard of another line she helped design - Trucco Cosmetics.  I own many items from Trucco in my kit and they're amazing.

Hi Bellas,

Today's post features makeup organization.  I have a quick entry showing a new product I use to organize my personal makeup brushes.  Most of you probably have heard of or even use the Sephora Inspired Brush Holder originally created by Enkore Makeup. I had been using this method on and off for a while now, but found that it was falling short for my personal brush situation.

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share with you a look from one of my viewers.

Check out Aisha!  She used my Halloween Tutorial - Sexy Cheetah Girl for an Esthetician Competition

Fierce!  If you'd like me to feature a look you've recreated from one of my tutorials, please email the picture to makeupbyren@yahoo.com.

My laptop seems to have contracted a virus...hopefully the BF can get it working soon so I can upload some videos!

Ciao bellas!

Hi Bellas,

As you all now, I had the opportunity to test out Jemma Kidd Products.  I initially showed them to you all in my Opening the Box Video.  Jemma Kidd has three lines available:  JK Makeup School, JK Pro, and JK Jemma Kidd for Target.  I've had a few weeks to play with products from all three lines and I'm ready to give review these products and give you a tutorial as well.  To me, the products speak effortless beauty.  The colors I received are perfect for everyday makeup for school or work.

Hi Bellas,

I haven't done a FOTN in a while so this post will feature a look I wore on a night out a few weeks ago. I wanted to go for something neutral but smokey at the same time. I had on a neutral look earlier that day when I was making over a client, so I ended up adding some dark brown shadow to it to make it night time and club appropriate.

Hi Bellas,

I had a lot of fun making this new tutorial. I wore a wig for the first time! I found this funky affordable wig on a wholesale site called www.RockeyTrading.com . They sell a lot of really cheap beauty items and wigs for super cheap. The catch is that you have to spend a minimum of $100 or $200 if it includes wigs. They usually sell by the dozen.

In this video, I show you how to put on a wig and then create a quick and easy funky look to go with it.

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another haul video.  This is my very first haul featuring clothes, shoes and jewelry...or basically, not makeup!  I'm 26 years old, so my style is still young but transitioning into more professional and polished.  I like cute summer and club dresses, but I also have to rock my suits and slingbacks.  I know a lot of other Fashion Hauls are from YouTubers still in college so this is my take from someone in their mid twenties.  Please let me know if you like these videos and if you want more!

A lot of the items were purchased from discount stores like Ross and TJ Maxx for a really great deal.

Check out my haul video!

The jewelry was purchased at a jewelry wholesale store but they also have a website http://www.swimports.com

The clothing and shoes were purchased at TJ Maxx, Ross, and Loehmanns.

FTC Disclosure:  All items purchased by me.

Hi Bellas,

Today's post is a little different.  As you know, I'll give you a review on cosmetics or skin care any day...but today i'll be reviewing another favorite of mine - purses!  I've noticed a lot of other YouTubers getting into fashion haul videos as well.  You might not know this about me, but I love to shop especially if I can find a deal!  If you follow me on twitter, i'm always posting about my shopping finds.

Today, I wanted to show you a new company that sells super cute stuff...from purses, to jewelry, to accessories.  After browsing the site, it seems that the store is geared to those who like trendy, fashionable items with an edge.  I'll reviewing one of the purses from them today.

Hi Bellas,

As many of you all may know, I took an opportunity of a life time and went sky diving this weekend. It was an amazing experience. Honestly, the scariest part is the fear of jumping...once you're out of the plane, it's amazing!

I went to Skydive Atlanta, an amazing company with great people. My videographer Chris did an absolutely outstanding job on capturing my experience on film...wait till you see my video!

Hi Bellas,

Today's makeup tutorial is a little different.  I'm doing a makeup tutorial for skydiving!  This really applies to natural looking, durable makeup for extreme sports and events.  It may sound a little strange to wear makeup while doing sports...but on certain occasions it's okay to wear certain products that will not clog your pores and will actually help protect your skin from the elements.  In this case, the products I use will help protect my skin from the extreme wind and sun from sky diving!  Today's video features Tarte Cosmetics...a super popular brand which you can find at http://www.sephora.com.  The products are sulfate and paraben free and work really well to boot.

Hi Bellas,

I recently had the opportunity to test out the Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" set from www.Misikko.com.  The company name may slund familiar. They were a huge retailer of hair tools and recently went back to their roots as a family owned company.  This site offers a huge range of professional flat irons and other hair care products.

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another quick makeover.  One of my good friends from had special formal to attend for work and asked if I could do her makeup.  I hadn't seen her in a while and agreed since I hadn't seen her in a while and it gave me a chance to play with some new products on a willing model.

She wanted a smoky but we still wanted to keep it light since her dress was black.  I decided to go for more of a light silver smokey look using my 120 Eyeshadow Palette.
