Hi, I’m Renee, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m a beauty editor turned makeup artist from Singapore. I started Blog for Beauty in 2006 when I was in high school as I was new to makeup and wanted to share honest reviews and tips I was learning. Also, it was a way to prepare for a career in beauty journalism – my dream was to become a beauty editor.
Before I knew it, my blog grew into something I could never imagine.
I am so grateful to have worked with brands such as Clinique, Benefit, MAC, Laura Mercier and Clarins; hosting events, videos and makeup demos, being named one of the top beauty blogs in the world by Vogue Italy and featured in the national newspaper. I also got the opportunity to release Renee’s Blend, a limited edition natural bath & body collection, and then wrote my first e-book, Makeup for Beginners.
I did become a beauty editor and writer in the end, after university, but I left to focus on my own ventures, namely this blog; where I combine my love of writing (blog), work as a makeup artist (hire me here) and being an exclusive distributor for beauty brands I love (shop coming soon).
As a professional makeup artist I have trained at Make Up For Ever Academy in fashion & beauty makeup, as well as bridal makeup artistry. I work mostly with private clients for weddings, special events and private makeup lessons; but also backstage in fashion shows and events for Louis Vuitton, Make Up For Ever, Singapore International Film Festival and Chinese Culture Week.
My style and beauty philosophy is one that looks natural, brings out your best and is minimalist in nature; and is what my blog centers around. It is also an independent, unbiased and unsponsored place, featuring only what I personally believe in.
Thank you so much for reading!
