Renata took a chance in 2008, leaving her job to take a risk in pursuing beauty and she hasn’t looked back! She is a full-time makeup artist in Washington D.C. and has worked for brands like MAC, Nars, and Laura Mercier! She knows how to create beautiful, natural looks every woman can feel confident in.
Why did you decide to start your own company? How long have you been in business?
I started makeup artistry in 2006 as a freelance makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics. In 2008, I moved to the Washington DC area to pursue a full-time freelance career by working for cosmetic brands and building a bridal makeup business. I currently work for Fox News Channel in Washington DC as a makeup + hair artist and I have a private beauty studio in Old Town Alexandria.
The name has evolved over the years and I finally settled in with Renata Lynette Makeup (my first and middle name).
I love the freedom to build and shape my legacy the way I want to. The creative energy that surrounds the beauty industry right now is amazing.
I have a team of hair + makeup artists that work with me during wedding season that share the same passion for beauty as I do.
