About Us

Renelyn Thomas of Makeup by Ren Ren created her Beauty Blog in 2007 to fill a gap in the beauty industry.  As an everyday consumer, she could not find products or artists that suited her ethnic roots.  She decided to fill this void by creating a blog catering to women of all ethnicities, ages, and walks of life.  She expanded Makeup By Ren Ren, the blog, to include video reviews and makeup tutorials on YouTube.  

Her YouTube page has received over 8 million views and her blog hits continue to increase month after month.  She has also partnered with major cosmetic companies to offer product reviews, giveaways and interactive events for readers.  After an overwhelming positive response, Renelyn entered into a professional career in Freelance Makeup by launching Urban Pretty – Makeup By Ren.  Renelyn now teaches makeup classes, and offers makeup services from anything to brides, fashion shows, photo shoots and award shows.  She is also a partner and instructor at Industry Makeup Academy.  Renelyn is married with hopes to start a family soon in her home town of Atlanta, GA.
