Renee B. was born and raised in Chicago as an only child. At the age of 12, she purchased her first skincare and beauty products from Clinique Cosmetics. Her mom or grandmother didn’t use professional products, so she’s not sure how her love for the beauty industry came about. But, on her first visit to the Clinique counter, she knew it was love at first purchase and she has not looked back since. Today, she has fifteen plus years of work experience in the beauty industry and half a lifetime as a cosmetic product junkie!
Renee is a beauty maven who exudes splendor in all things beauty! Her purpose is to empower women and girls to make the best choices in life to improve her lifestyle from head to toe as well as from the inside out. The brand Beauty School Scarlet is more than a beauty blog. It’s a movement to inspire women and girls to embrace their inner beauty. And promote and affirm them through their developmental ages and continuously as adults. She encourages them to realize that beauty is not complicated or complex; it is simple.
She’s presented components of this program through workshops and seminars at her company Boardroom Beauties. Renee is member in the following organizations. NAPW (National Association of Professional Women), ColorComm (Women of Color in Communications) and a Beauty Correspondent for Six Brown Chicks. She was a participant in the “What is Beauty Campaign,” A campaign, which empowers young women to embrace beauty from the inside out through social media outlets.
