As a young girl in new zealand, Rene was enthralled with the glamour of hair and makeup, regualary devouring the beauty advice in magazines and repeatedly practising the looks on her very patient mum and younger sister.

Her formal training began with a 4 year hairdressing apprenticeship developing her knowledge and skills through competitions and working on hair design teams. Upon graduating she moved to London where she was presented with the opportunity to assist on teams for the renowned Haute Couture Makeup Artists Val Garland, Sam Bryant and Petros. Under their guidance Rene learnt the art of makeup.

With her reliablity, sense of humour and talent she built her own clientele, heading her own teams for catwalk, the BBC and ITV shows. Recently Rene was awarded the ‘Royal Television Society Best Makeup Design’ for Dancing On Ice.

Her ability to bring forth the natural beauty of each person she works with means Rene is highly sought after for editorial front covers, celebrities, and couture advertising.
