Rachel was fantastic. I do not wear makeup most days, and when I do, it's very little, so I was a bit nervous getting my makeup done. I have acne prone/scarred skin and really didn't want that to be what people noticed on my wedding day. Rachel did airbrush makeup on me and it... Read More was great. She was professional, yet warm and talkative. She listened to my wants, ideas, concerns and did just an amazing job. I was so, so pleased. AND unlike other artists around, she would do just one person, most others will only book if they are doing 3 or more people in a wedding. Rachel is the best, use her you will not be disappointed!

Did a good job!

It was important to me to find an African American make-up artist that would be familiar with my skin tone. I was a bit hesitant when viewing Rachel's website since they were not alot of black brides on her site. Meeting Rachel in person, she is great to work with and she is... Read More good at what she does. After my trial, I thought she did a great job. On the day of the wedding Rachel did make-up for myself, bridesmaids, mom and sister. Everyone's make-up looked great but I think that Rachel still needs a bit more practice with darker skin tones i.e. selecting the right palette. My face was flawless and I don't think that anyone else in AZ could have done a better job!

She made me feel like a Princess

When I saw Rachel's portfolio, I knew I wanted her as our makeup artist. Her portfolio of work is gorgeous and inspiring and also well varied, so you knew that she could do exactly what you were looking for. She arrived on time for our trial, and did a perfect job! She takes the... Read More time to get to know you, what you want/expect, and how you feel about wearing makeup overall - making sure that you won't be "surprised" with the outcome. She knew that I wasn't comfortable with "too much" makeup, so she made sure to tone it down some, but to really play up the eyes (but not overdo) so that the makeup really popped in the photos. She did my makeup, airbrush, my mom and sister, traditional, and my four other bridesmaids, just their eyes. And I absolutely love how she made each girl feel special - and worked in their personalities too, yet they were all seamless! If you want to look perfect for your wedding - then you definitely want to book Rachel, I can not say enough for how amazing her work is, and how professional, sweet and charming she is!

Rachel is THE BEST. I am a makeup connoisseur and extremely picky about how I wanted my makeup done. Boy did she deliever.

Read More All girls had different makeup preferences, one who was more adventurous to the other girl who liked to stay more on the safe side but all girls were so happy how it came out. Rachel listens to exactly what you want and makes you feel like the prettiest girl in the world after she is done.

She reassured them when one was nevous about having the false eyelashes but at the end of the night commented on how she didnt want to take them off!!
