PATRICE RENÉE

Patrice Renée is a Makeup and Hair Artist originally from Northern Virginia and currently located in Charlotte, NC.

In 2012 she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Merchandising from Virginia Commonwealth University. While in school, she tailored her curriculum to focusing on the areas of fashion that really interested her: Makeup & Hair. In addition to her studies, she made time to pursue her interests in real life, providing makeup services to various school fashion shows, assisting established area artists in bridal and studio shoots, and becoming Hair and Makeup Coordinator for her school's largest, student-run, production: STRUT. Upon graduation she sought employment in her field but soon found it an arduous and futile process.

With her abundance of free time she continued to learn and assist. After relocating she found a new mentor and began doing test shoots and practicing more and more on friends and family.

She has since earned her license in cosmetology, worked in salon, joined the AVEDA makeup team for NYFW, and continues to work on her craft via photoshoots, weddings, and special event work.  With her new skill set and sheer desire to learn and grow, Patrice has no doubt she will find great success in the beauty industry.
