Hi Bellas,

I'm backkk!  I've literally been gone for weeks after having my destination wedding and honeymoon.  I'm going to try to get back in the blogging swing of things once Christmas settles and I can't wait to share new material with you.  In the meanwhile, I filmed this wedding shoe haul for you before my wedding and it has such great shoe options for you future brides to be.  I literally scoured the net for several months looking for the best deals and cutest options for all kinds of must-have bridal shoes.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

It's funny, because as a Makeup Artist usually I'm the one giving tips to my clients on how to make sure they look amazing on their wedding day.  Now i'm taking my own advice as I myself am getting hitched in less than 2 weeks, can't believe it!  Today i'm sharing with you my own personal tips to get the best wedding makeup possible.  Check it out!



Hi Bellas,

Finally another video in my fitness/healthy lifestyle series.  Today i'm sharing my healthy protein shake recipe.  It's great for a meal replacement or post workout shake.  It's super yummy and makes me feel great, stay on track with healthy eating, and get to my fitness goals.  I show multiple options from basic to more of a meal replacement option.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

Thanks for your patience as I'm trying to get back into uploading more posts and videos.  I've been having laptop technical issues and it's been tough trying to get material up.  Luckily I was able to edit this video on my future mother in law's computer.  Today I'm showing you another get ready with me video.  It's a chocolaty brown themed makeup look as well as hair and outfit of the night.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

I'm super excited to let you know that next Tuesday 10/20/15, I'm taking over CoverFX's Instagram and I'm bringing you with me to the Dominican Republic.  I'm visiting this beautiful island as I have about 1 month to go before my wedding!  I'll be tasting cake, getting hair trials, and also showcasing some of my must-have CoverFX products that I'm bringing with me.

Hi Bellas,

Happy Friday!  I am finally back with another video.  So so sorry for the delay.  First I had a whole bunch of wedding events...bridal shower, bachelorette...then i had to go out of town for a week for work and then back out of town for a wedding, sheesh!  I'm glad i'm finally getting a video up and it's a good one! GRWM/Review/Giveaway!  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

I've got another Face and Outfit of the Day for you all.  I've been making a lot more of an effort to document my outfits for you all since it seems like you really like seeing them incorporated with my beauty looks.  I will say, working out and eating right for my wedding has also made me much more confident to share these full body shots with you lol.  Today I'm featuring a look that I rocked to a friend's surprise party, check it out!

Hi Bellas,

It's almost September.  To me, that means time to start doing Halloween Makeup Tutorials!  I need your help.  What do you all want to see this year?  I want to do a better job of preparing this year for Halloween makeup looks that you all really want to see and might actually use.  Just leave your suggestions in the comments below.  I already have a few ideas in mind.  Can't wait to hear what you guys recommend!



Hi Bellas,

I've got another makeup haul for you.  I actually hauled this several weeks ago when I went to PhamExpo.  Better late then never!  I picked up a bunch of great items I've been lemming for a long time along with some refills and brand new products.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

Today you get a double post - both outfit and face of the day!  I recently rocked a really fun, summery look for a day out for my beastie's birthday.  I also got to play a bit more with colored contacts.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another quick installment in my Wedding Series!  I just received my Bridal Shower invitation in the mail and I wanted to share it with you all.  I really have an all star bridal party and have the utmost confidence that they will throw an amazing Bridal Shower.  The super cute invitation already sets the tone.  Did you see the actual pink rhinestone embellishment on the top right corner, super cute!  I can already picture pink and gold and bling for my special event, but then again it's a surprise so who knows what to expect.  I will definitely have pictures of the event and I can't wait to share with you my bridal shower dress.  It was my very first purchase as a bride-to-be.  If any of my bridal party is reading this, you go girls!


Stay tuned for more!  To stay up to date on my wedding planning, follow my wedding pinterest board!




Hi Bellas,

Over the last several months I've been on a hunt for various products to treat my hair.  Since it's been bleached I've definitely noticed more dryness, split ends, and damage.  I want to find the best products to keep my hair as healthy as possible.  I've heard of the Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment in the past.  Check out my thoughts on the product!

Hi Bellas,

Today I'm featuring a Sephora Haul which is actually a very rare occurance.  I think I haul from Sephora maybe once a year?  Why you may ask?  I'm a cheapo lol.  I actually tend to purchase Professional Makeup Brands because they're a bit cheaper and just as good as the designer brands.  But i've been itching to try some luxury products especially with all the YouTube gurus hauling these amazing looking makeup.  Check out the haul!


Hi Bellas,

I've been on a fashion haul spree this summer.  I decided to do something a bit different.  Instead of just holding up the pieces in a clothing haul, I'm going to try the pieces on and give you a review of the item.  I picked up some pieces from Fashion Nova as they've been all over YouTube and instagram lately.  Check out my review!

Hi Bellas,

I am a sucker for bronzing and contouring, especially when I find a product that makes it quick and easy to get out the door with a sculpted and glowy face.  One of my favorite brands Nudestix just came out with some great bronzing pencils in matte and shimmer shades.  Check it out!

Hi Guys,

I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed for CoverFX's blog.  I answered tons of questions which I think could help a lot of you makeup lovers and aspiring artists out there.  Check it out!



Here's a snippet:

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL WITH REN REN, MAKEUP ARTIST


Renelyn Monteloyola, better known as Ren Ren the fabulous makeup artistblogger and YouTube star, hails from the Peach State where she creates pieces of art on faces. Let’s get a bit deep with Ren Ren and learn more about her beauty inspirations and secrets!

How did you first get into blogging and/or vlogging?
I actually was on the web searching for makeup ideas for NYE one year because I struggled with finding department store counter makeup artists who could work with my skin tone and eye shape.  I came upon a forum called Asian Beauty Blog where women just like me were posting their pictures and tips and tricks.  I was hooked!  I knew I had a knack for makeup and decided to start my own blog, then YouTube channel, and it was history from there!

Who’s your biggest inspiration or role model in the beauty world?
I am greatly inspired by many amazing artists – I would say my first huge role model was celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine.  He is a master makeup artist and a kind soul.  He really shows off beauty in a luminous and natural way and is an amazing person at the same time.



There are tons more on the blog including my favorite makeup tricks and trends.  Enjoy and happy reading!
