Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Collection Tutorial and Giveaway!

Hi Bellas,

As promised, I created a tutorial on the look I wore in the last video where I debuted the Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Collection.  I showed you how to complete an entire look using just the brushes in the collection and I also showed you multiple ways of using each brush.  This is a great look for a hot summer date and I'm also announcing my huge giveaway of 4 complete brush apron sets.

Hi Ren Ren,

One day i stumbled across your blog trying to learn how to highlight and contour my face and absolutely fell in love with your style. From that moment on i finally knew what i wanted to do with my life! Doing makeup gives me the most joy that ive felt and even though there were times where i felt like i would give up, watching you inspired me and helped me to believe this is something i can truely accomplish in my life and these brushes would mean the world to me....

Sara Negron said...

I would LOVE to win because I am an aspiring MUA and I've never tried these brushes and they seem like they are the perfect addition to my make up kit! thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

misswondergirl916 said...

I hope to win because i really like these brushes and I need some.

Lolly said...

Hi Ren, firstly, thankyou for this opportunity to win this beautiful brush set, i can see you have done a fab job designing them. they really do cover everything you would want in a good brush set which not all, even the really pricey sets, always do. I would love to win this set because while i have a few individual brushes, i do not own a full, quality set. I also totally adore all things make-up!! x

Ulrikke said...

I would love to win these brushes because I live in a country where it's really hard to get them. No stores sell "pro" brushes up nort in Norway. Many online stores don't ship internationally, and those that do, often have a really high shipping price.

Having good brushes would be SO helpful. I just really want to get better at make-up, haha.

A girl named Kristi said...

Hello Ate Renren! I appreciate you so much and been following your blog and youtube for a year.

Anyway I wanna win this because as you know, it's hard to find super nice brush sets here in the country except for the super high end ones. Im a starting MUA here in Quezon CIty and I simply need to invest, but I cant buy high end products yet. So i join contests too.

Thanks so much I hope you can hear me out!

It would be so exciting to win these awesome brushes! They look amazing and the fact that you were involved in production is even better.
