Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to me! Shout out to my fellow Cancers out there. I'm so happy that on my birthday I can hook you all up with an amazing, huge, absolutely fabulous giveaway! My good friends at Ofra Cosmetics. They let me pick my favorite products and i'm hooking you all up! Two winners will together win $1000 worth of makeup! In the video I actually wore all the makeup so you can see what it looks like and told you all about each awesome product. Check it out!
Are you ready for another makeover? I have another one that I filmed at Industry Makeup Academy. This look is so gorgeous and flattering on every skin tone and it's especially perfect for the summer. If you want to know how to get a glowy, bronzey makeover, check it out!
Happy Monday. I was digging through my memory card and found this look that I rocked a couple of months ago. I love when I have a makeup product that makes me go outside my comfort zone, in this case, rocking bright color! Check it out!
If you don't know by now that the Makeup Show Atlanta Pop-Up Shop is this weekend then i'm not doing my job! I'm so excited for this show and especially for my panel during the show on Saturday June 18th at 5pm. I've partnered with my girls Mimi Johnson from The Glamatory and Ebony Miller from Industry Makeup Academy. I decided to this panel because I know that Atlanta is a thriving beauty market, and we need to come together as brothers and sisters in beauty, so that we can help everyone succeed and find their own niche. My dream is to have Atlanta have a collaborative beauty industry with tons of educational and networking opportunities for everyone to experience. This will not only lift up the level of talent, but also bring more opportunities and ensure that we're all making the money that we deserve. No more undercutting other artists or selfishness in not wanting to help others - rather we're going to all build each other up for the better.
In this panel, we all have succeeded in different arenas of the beauty industry. We're going to keep it real and tell you how we succeeded and why you may not be successful in makeup today. This is an open forum to learn everything you can to make yourself a better Makeup Artist and Beauty Professional. These opportunities don't come very day so I hope that you all take advantage of it. Don't forget to purchase your advanced tickets by Thursday 6/16/16 at www.themakeupshow.com . If you RSVP at www.meetup.com/atlanta-makeup-meetup you can purchase the student ticket rate and the first 30 people to check in at the show with their RSVP will receive a free makeup gift.

I'm finally using the famed Violet Voss Holy Grail palette that I picked up at the last IMATS show. I was not disappointed! The shadows are very pigmented, creamy and apply and blend really nicely. I also had a chance to test out MannyMua's new line of liquid lipsticks from Ofra - love them! So pretty and girly, new fav combo!
In case you haven't heard, the Makeup Show is coming to Atlanta! They will be having a Pop Up Shop here at the West June 18th and 19th. I'm so excited to be a part of the show. I got together some of my favorite Atlanta Makeup success stories to be on a panel with me called "How to Succeed in Makeup in Atlanta".
Also, i'm giving away a free ticket to the show! I will be posting the giveaway picture on instagram on Monday, June 14th. Just repost the picture and tag me @makeupbyrenren and I will pick a winner. Good luck!

Happy Friday! I wanted to end the week with a fun makeover. You all loved my last makeover on my friend for her birthday. I've been doing a lot of one minute makeovers for Industry Makeup Academy and I decided to give you all a treat with this longer tutorial. I made over my friend Bindiya and gave her a modern take on an Indian Bridal Makeup. It's bright, fun and very easy to recreate. Check it out!
