Bren Gomez is a writer, beauty expert, makeup artist, and storyteller. A third-generation native Angeleno, she still lives in Los Angeles today with her cute AF dog Ferdinand, most likely with 1-2 more dogs hangin’ around too since she’s usually fostering.

With over 15 years of experience in the beauty industry, as well as a decade of experience writing, Bren combined the two passions way back in 2009 to start her first blog, a project then called So Much Pretty. While that blog no longer exists, she can still be found writing about beauty (as well as lifestyle, culture, and wellness) on websites such as NYLON, Refinery29, HelloGiggles, FIERCE by mitú, and LAist.

She is the founder of Beauty Piñata, a beauty platform by and for #Latinx, focusing on inclusivity in the beauty industry by celebrating cultura, community, and identity with the power of beauty y makeup. She is also the founder and co-host of Second Base, a weekly podcast about the best and only baseball team that matters, the Los Angeles Dodgers.

When she’s not writing about beauty, doing makeup, giving skincare advice, or talking about her hair, Bren is playing with a dog somewhere, at the beach, or at Dodger Stadium.
