About RachelI went to The Skin and Makeup Insititute of Arizona (full time program) in which I graduated at the top of my class. I am a makeup artist with 6 years of experience in wedding/special occasion/fashion/film/and teaching. I specalize in a flawless complexion and color theory. I'll be sure to color match you perfectly with my professional products.
Beauty PhilosophyI believe there is beauty in everyone and makeup should only enhance that. If you may want something a little more glamorous; I promise to make sure your skin still has a warm glow and natural beauty qualities to it at the end of the application. I'm also all about working with you to get the look you want; so if during our time together you have questions or concerns I am all ears!
Rachel arrived on time and did an amazing job for the video shoot. She even helped with my hair. The director loved her! Thank you!
Rachel was a pleasure, my make up was flawless!
Rachel was awesome and fully-transformed both me and my husband into Lady Gaga! Plus she had such a fun and friendly personality and made the session even more enjoyable. Thank you!
Rachel was the best of the best. She did my make up for me and my bridal party and was not only personable, but brought makeup that lasted all day--through wind and rain as well. She was also extremely accommodating as well. 5 stars just aren't enough. Thank you Rachel for everything!
I would highly recommend Rachel! She was easy to communicate with and easily accommodated a last-minute, unexpected time change. She was also friendly and easy to talk to. I have social anxiety and usually dread appointments because of the perceived expectation of being charming and a good conversationalist. I was totally at ease with Rachel, and she was funny and sweet. While she has a great personality, she also has talent in excess. She achieved the exact look I was aiming for, and the results lasted beautifully throughout a long rainy day. I would hire her again in an instant if I return to Chicago!
Loved Rachel's work - she was very professional, super nice and brought her own chair! She did a bohemian/natural/glowy look for my engagement shoot and it felt so light and comfortable. The look lasted through a 9 hour photo shoot. Loved that all the colors, from my foundation to my lips were custom blended day of. I highly recommend her!
Rachel is very sweet and works fast. She is gentle and pays attention to details. My airbrushing was perfect and last all day and night. The eye makeup was stunning . I can’t wait to work with her again
What a great experience we had! Rachel was professional and made us look beautiful! We will definitely book her again. She is a very talented make up artist!
Rachel was AWESOME! She showed up on time, was very professional and followed my requests thoroughly. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!
Rachel was wonderful! As I don't wear make-up very often, I didn't have a strong opinion on what I was looking for and Rachel was able to make suggestions that worked for me. I can't wait to book her for my wedding day.
Rachel immediately reached out to me asking if I had style inspiration for the wedding I was attending. When she arrived (early) for our appointment, she handed me her phone full of different makeup options. I was able to pick and choose aspects that I liked. Rachel was so friendly, polite and professional throughout my appointment. I have never had such a flawless foundation in the past. The makeup felt lightweight even on a Chicago August afternoon. The makeup withstood the crying of a long wedding celebration on into the early morning hours. If I am in need of a makeup service in the future I will definitely use Rachel!!
Easy, communicative, professional and fun!!
Rachel was fantastic. I was in Chicago for a wedding and selected Rachel based on her ratings. She was on time and did the most beautiful natural looking job. I made a mistake as far as what time I needed to be ready and she had expertise to expedite and still came out incredibly! Thank you!
My make-up artist was early (which is always a great thing) I however, was late. The overall experience was amazing, I couldn't ask for a better person to work with and be around. I will use her again and send referrals.
Rachel showed up right on time and was super sweet and professional! She talked with me about photos of makeup that I liked and did a great job of recreating the exact look that I wanted.
Rachel was great to work with. She spent time beforehand gathering information on me, my preferences, and my normal make-up habits. She created a natural glam look for me that can easily be adjusted to be more glam or more natural, and she gave me tips on how to test run the makeup that evening so I can make an informed decision on what I want on my wedding day. She approached the work professionally, but also really flexibly. It was a relief because sometimes stylists seem really invested in the look they want to create, and I am not assertive enough to voice my opinion. But, Rachel seemed genuinely invested in me and encouraged me to provide feedback.
