We had the good fortune of connecting with Robyn Elder and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Robyn, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
The thought process behind my business was my love for makeup. I started doing makeup since being a teenager, i love playing in my moms eyeshadows and when i turned 16 she let me get my own from MAC COSMETICS it was a wrap from there lol. I did my friends makeup, my mom, and cousins! I was so obsessed lol i always use to say “i can’t wait to have my own cosmetic products/line so i can achieve as many goals as so i would practice with my cousin and we would do each other’s eyebrows. That was always fun! I would always write down business names to come up with something different. So i decided to use my middle name “Renay” added “blush” because it has a classy sound to it and it went from there..

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets me apart from everyone is that we are a vegan cosmetic brand! We test out our products before we advertise anything! We make sure that our customers needs are put first and respond to every need there is.

Hard work and dedication! Nothing comes easy and overnight! I am learning every single to be patient with myself. I’ve been in business a year already and I’ve had A LOT of mistakes with that was a lesson to be learned! Although it may seem easy, it’s definitely not. I overcame these challenges with PRAYER and trusting in myself. I learned that every small mistake you make can be overturned by a bigger blessing!

I want everyone to know that Renays Blush is a cosmetic brand for all women! All ethnicities! We want to see all women glow when they have on anything “Renay’s Blush”! Feeling even more confident when there beauty is enhanced. We are here for all professional MUAS & beginner MUAS as well! I believe we’re going to be a millionaire company! I believe in elevating, and that’s exactly what my company will be doing! ELEVATING.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Steak48. This is my all time favorite place in the world! Best food in town. So grand. They have the absolute best steak, best drinks and the vibes are incredible!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mom! My mom is literally the person behind me and my business to keep me going! She listens to ALL of my ideas, all of my stories, and she even gives me great advice to pitch something new! I am forever grateful for her and her love.

My beautiful daughter! My best friend, my world! She’s 8 and she too gives me the BEST ideas and advice! I love her over the moon!

Without these two, i wouldn’t be where i am in my business!
