Starting with her primary passion for art, it led her to creating YouTube videos competing against other makeup artists world wide. After winning many contests, she was discovered by the owner of a local mineral makeup company. She took this amazing opportunity of being the lead makeup artist for the company to travel the nation applying makeup to all ethnicities and age groups. She quickly learned the importance of listening to the client and knowing how to create makeup looks that matched not only their features but how to enhance them and exceed the clients expectations. Although Renee loved her new role she felt the need to expand her horizon in the makeup industry and joined Sephora.
