Meet Renee Angelique
Walnut Creek Socialite
Hello loves! It’s your girl Renee Angelique!
I’m a 23 year old, Bay Area native that has a passion for fashion and makeup. From a young age, I was intrigued with glamorous, sparkly clothes. Seriously, I got lost in a mall - which they had to shut down - and apparently I was found next to the sparkling prom dresses. I was four years old.
I believe I was around 14 when I started going to thrift stores and altered clothes to the current trends. I was all about looking like a million bucks without having to spend so much money. I started officially wearing makeup around 16 and fell in love with it. I loved the idea of creating so many unique looks, and essentially the process of the transformation.
In 2016, I started my youtube channel that focused on makeup tutorials/ product reviews. I reviewed not only luxury items, but drugstore products as well. In late 2017 I decided to start my blog “It’s Renee Angelique “ . As my YouTube channel, I started my blog to create a space to give fashion and makeup tips and tricks to plus size women of color. I know prior to inclusive brands like Fenty Beauty coming out, it was hard to find foundation that matched our skin tone. I wanted to showcase the products that I use and love while suggesting options that are affordable. That also goes for fashion as well. Plus size clothing can easily get expensive. I strive to help others show off their boughetto (bougie and ghetto) realness without breaking the bank.
