Hi Bellas,

I'm gearing up to head on a family cruise to the Bahamas.  I've got some content scheduled but I'll be lounging on the beach and sipping Mai Tais with teh fam.  Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see me uploading pics from the cruise.  I'll also be filming some cruise vlogs and fashion look books.  See you on the web!

Hi Bellas,

I'm so excited for this new video.  I've been planning it out for months.  I don't know about you guys, but I am an Amazon Prime Junkie!  I buy everything from there, from groceries to cosmetics and also clothing!  2 day free shipping and returns makes it so convenient to find really cute clothes.  Everything I am showing you is great for the summer.  Everything is around a Med/Large size 8/10.  My body shape is Pear and I consider myself to be on the curvy/thick side but not quite plus size.  I absolutely love watching try-on hauls especially for online sites that are affordable.  I hope you enjoy!


Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share with you a before and after for a recent shoot.  The makeup was all about glow and natural beauty.  I love this style.  The makeup was actually inspired after the style of one of my favorite makeup artists Renny Vasquez.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

I was going through some of my most popular blog posts and decided to bring back some favorites.  Today I'm showing you my favorite foundations for tan skin.  I consider myself in the brown category and it can be though to find shades and products that give me the right amount of brown with yellow undertone.  Today I'm swatching my favorite foundations for you - both high end and drugstore so there's an option for everybody.  Check it out!



Hi Bellas,

I'm a skincare fanatic and always love trying out new brands.  My mother's friend actually sent me some products to try from Rodan and Fields.  It's my first time trying it out but i've always heard about them.  Check out my thoughts on the line below!

Hi Bellas,

I was cleaning out some old blog posts and found a draft of a post from years ago that I wrote when I was going through a depressed stage in life.  I obviously kept it because I knew I'd want it for another rainy day.  After reading through these personal feelings, I decided to publish it.  Because I know someone out there will appreciate it.  Take a look!



Hi Bellas,

When a Drag Queen recommends a makeup product to you, you buy it!  That's what happened to me.  I was at a local costume shop buying professional makeup for my students' makeup kits and an amazing drag queen recommended this awesome product.  It was foundation, highlight and contour in one.  I gave it a first impressions test to see if it would go from the drag queen stage to my everyday makeup routine.  Check out the results!


Hi Bellas,

Happy Tuesday!  I'm so excited to share with you my brand new Makeup Artist Website www.RenelynThomas.com.  After I transitioned into doing makeup full time last year, I knew it was time for an upgrade.  I've put in a lot of work into this site and for all of my fellow business owners out there, I thought i'd take it a step further.  Here are 5 Steps to a Great Business Website.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

Have you tried No7 Makeup before?  I had heard loads about this brand and love the skincare.  But this is my first time trying out the makeup.  Check out my latest Getting Ready with Me video on YouTube to see me to test out some of the products.  Onto pics and swatches!

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to take it back to some makeup basics.  I am always surprised when I teach my Makeup Students that a lot of them do not know how to apply a basic winged liner.  It's usually a game of chance with them, some times it looks good sometimes it doesn't.  Well, I have 3 easy steps to make sure your winged liner looks good each time.  Check out my new youtube video!



Hi Bellas,

Do you ever have a go-to makeup look that you know is pretty, safe and will work on any occasion.  I always teach my students to have a couple of these looks on hand to give their clients who have no idea of what makeup look they want.  I think an ideal look is a bronze eye.  I mean it's brown, it's sparkly, you're good to go!  Check it out!



Hi Bellas,

Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing with you a look for a Kentucky Derby Party.  It was fun to wear a super big hat and drink mint juleps.  I was in a rush with my makeup but I love the outcome.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

If you've been following me on social media, you know that I've announced that I'll be hitting the road with IMA for our first USA Pro Makeup Artist Certification Tour.  The first stop is Orlando!  I'm so excited to give other cities the chance to become Certified Makeup Artists.  Check out the details below!


Hi Bellas,

2017 is the year of my reinvention.  I've published a new professional website, redesigned my blog, created a new logo, headshot, social media banners...but today i'm focusing on my brand new business card.  I actually loved my old business card but it's time for change and I can't wait to share with you how to get the most effective business card ever.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share with you a before and after from a recent bridal trial.  My Bride to Be was very natural.  She prefers light makeup and wanted just enough to maker her look polished for her big day.  This got me thinking...on Instagram and Social Media we see tons of tips for dramatic makeovers, but not enough for a natural look.  So I gathered 4 easy tips that any non-MUA can accomplish for her big day.  Check it out!

Hi Bellas,

Happy Friday!  I have a makeover for you from a recent Indian Wedding.  This is the first of three looks and the most color!  My bride was a very natural girl...doesn't do much with hair and makeup.  It was fun introducing her to more options with makeup.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

Have you ever tried Multimisting?  Or maybe you've never heard of it?   Multimisting is customizing your Makeup Setting Sprays for your skin type and the occasion.  I think this is pretty cool.  I've seen multi-masking with face masks and now we've evolved to using different setting sprays because every one is not made equal.  Check it out!


Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial!  I finally got to test out my new camera the Song A5100.  Let me know what you think of the quality!  I'm still playing with lighting but so far I love it!  This look is a very pretty sunset, gold eye dedicated towards Spring.  I used a lot of new products which are definitely stepping up my makeup game.  Check it out!
