Renata always knew her love for beauty would lead her to a more creative career path. In 2008, after working many years in the financial industry, she decided to take a risk and moved to Washington, D.C. to pursue makeup artistry full-time.
New to the Washington, D.C. area, she pulled from her experiences working in sales and marketing in the financial industry. She began working as a freelance artist to learn the basics of application and color theory. It didn't take long to develop a network of industry colleagues which lead to more work and bigger connections.
"It was one of the hardest decisions of my life. I had to leave what was comfortable in order to fulfill my craving for freedom of expression. I call it my twenty-something midlife crisis. I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Now I'm doing what I love and what excites me."
Over the last few years, Renata has worked for product lines such as MAC, Nars, and Laura Mercier. She even got a taste for TV serving as Key Artist on several projects in the Washington, D.C. area. Everyday she devotes time to learning and perfecting her craft. From blushing brides to board room beauties, Renata has developed and mastered the art of creating natural, clean makeup.
Renata is the oldest of five children and mother to two handsome boys, Darren 15 and Chase 2.
