I’m Claire René and welcome to Claireifying Beauty!
Claireifying Beauty was created as a creative outlet to share my thoughts, ideas, outfit inspirations, beauty secrets, tips, tricks, encouragement, and so much more.
I believe life is beyond beautiful and there is something worth smiling about every single day. I decided it was time I laid out in a creative way, my love for makeup, fashion, hair, life, and all things in between. As a Certified Makeup Artist, Entrepreneuer, Model, Social Media Coordinator for a small business, singer, sister, daughter, lover, and friend, I needed a space where I could combine my love for writing, telling stories, sharing my ideas, with my passions, such as the beauty and fashion industry.
I started my blog almost exactly 2 years ago, and have seen immense growth! It’s been insane. I started this thing on a whim, one random summer day, and it’s becoming a full time thing, and I love it.
I am a self taught vocalist, and after high school, I went on a music scholarship at Indiana Wesleyan University, but quickly decided my passion for music was being tainted by the logistics of studying it note by note. I changed my major to communications and had a very unpleasant time, considering I was placed in level 300 classes as a freshman. *eye roll*
I came home and studied makeup and the rest is history.
I’m a freelance makeup artist: Makeup by Claire René (www.clairerene.com) with a certification in Makeup Artistry. I am a lover of fashion, coffee, Jesus, music, makeup, and everything else in between.
I have always been a writer and have loved telling stories. I was a journalism student and wrote for my high school newspaper, then later wrote for my university’s as well. So I guess it’s in my blood.
I began a career modeling as well soon after high school. I modeled for a few local boutiques, and then took on the role of Social Media Coordinator for one of those boutiques. I took care of all the marketing, social media, emailing, commenting, etc., and I fell in LOVE with that task. That job helped me to realize my love for this “online world.”
Speaking of, I also started to dabble in the world of Youtube when I launched my blog, and soon realized my love for video and video editing.
I now model for The Girls in Grey which is an online boutique based here in Indy.
It’s funny because I wanted to study music to use my gifts the Lord has blessed me with, but He had a different plan. I am also a Worship Leader at my church, Emmanuel Church, which has been such a blessing to me

I hope you enjoy what I have to say, perhaps learn something new, and if nothing else, I hope I can at least make you smile ❤
