Bren Gomez is a writer, beauty expert, and storyteller. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, where she still lives today, and is a third-generation Angeleno.

She started her first beauty blog in 2009, a move that launched her career in beauty writing. Before pursuing writing full-time, she worked in the beauty industry for over 15 years as a makeup artist, brand trainer, and publicist. In addition to beauty, Bren writes about lifestyle, wellness, and culture. Her work has appeared on NYLON, Refinery29, HelloGiggles, FIERCE by mitú, and LAist.

Bren is also the co-host of Second Base, a podcast about the best and only baseball team that matters, the Los Angeles Dodgers. When she’s not talking about makeup or the Dodgers, Bren is putting way too much effort into making her dog Instafamous (follow him at @ferdifluff!), volunteering with various dog rescues, fostering dogs, watching her friend’s dogs, or petting stranger’s dogs.
