One of the things I wanted to do when I started this blog was to feature some of the Instagram Beauty Community members that have impacted me in a positive way. One of the first accounts I followed when I started out was seattlemua.renee because she had such a lovely mix of makeup looks and makeup pics. She is extremely thorough in posting what makeup she uses in each picture. More importantly, she responds to everyone. I have seen her grow in both skills and as a woman over the last year. She has stood up to online bullying and has shared herself with the beauty community. What you see is what you get with her and she is simply amazing and genuine. The day she followed me back on Instagram I was over the moon. I knew I wanted my first blog feature to be Renee and her gorgeous account. She graciously answered the questions I emailed to her and allowed me to include pics from her account which are featured below.
Interview with seattlerenee.mua
Have you always lived in Seattle? If not, where else have you lived? I was born here in Seattle and grew up here. I lived in Arizona for 5 years to escape the rain and miss it terribly but family is here so I’m stuck 🙂
When did you get started with makeup / become a MUA? I got into makeup in middle school and started wearing it daily in high school but my real passion and career ignited after I was laid off from Boeing 2 years ago. I’m happy that happened as it gave me the chance to do what I love.
What is your favorite high end makeup company or product? Fave high end would be a tie between Chanel and YSL.
What is your favorite drugstore makeup company or product? Fave drugstore is NYX.
If you could only have 5 makeup products to use for the rest of your life – what would they be? Hardest question!!! I’d have to say ABH brow wiz as I have no brows, liquid liner, false lashes, nude lipstick and a foundation. (I may look funny) lol.
What is your favorite color? Favorite color is red.
What company are you most excited about seeing what they put out in 2016? I think I’m really excited to see what Jeffree Star puts out this year!
What inspires you? Seeing other makeup looks inspires me the most.
If you were not a MUA, what career could you see yourself doing? If I wasn’t in the makeup industry, I’d most likely be in real estate/mortgages.
What do you like to do in your spare time that is not beauty related? Spare time – love football and watch every Seahawks game!
What is your favorite thing about the Instagram beauty community? Fave thing about Instagram and the community would be meeting and interacting with friends daily. I’ve met some of my now best friends on there. It’s always amazing to meet people that share your same passions. I also love how we all help each other out!
