Una Renzi, Confident Beauty
After working as a makeup artist for world-class performance groups like Cirque du Soleil, I'm back to my salon roots helping people feel confident and beautiful! When it comes to lashes and brows, I bring a strong focus on finding the perfect stylistic fit for every client’s personal desires. Being a Lash & Brow Artist gives me the satisfaction of helping clients build confidence with beautiful lashes and eyebrows. I have a true passion for the art of lash and brow design while creating wonderful client experiences.
I'm a top trained artist with multiple lash and microblading certifications. My lashes certification is from the renowned company Xtreme. My work was featured in "Lash Inc." Magazine (Issue 2, 2018 España), after I won Runner Up honors at Conferencia Internacional De Cejas Y Pestañas in Madrid, Spain on June 23, 2018 (under my "formal" Taiwanese name, Chin-Yi Lin). My microblading certifications include those from the top academy in the world, PhiBrows (European Style), and Artistic Eyebrows (Asian Style).
In addition lashes and microblading, my professional experience includes five years as a nail designer, four years as a theatrical wig maker, and seven years as a makeup artist.
While I am constantly learning, for formal university education I have a BFA in fashion design and an MFA in wig and makeup design.
