What can I say, Rachel nailed it! I reached out to a friend of mine and he said that his sister and law does makeup for bridal events.

I absolutely LOVED having Rachel & her assistant Gabbi as part of our wedding in September. Even though it was a lot of girls (five bridesmaids and two moms and me!) and we had to be ready for 12:15, she never once made me feel like it was overwhelming and was so professional &... Read More amazing that I wasn’t ever worried about running late. They were at my parents’ house at the crack of dawn and somehow got all the hair & makeup done in 5 hours—and everyone looked so beautiful! Rachel was able to translate exactly what I wanted from a few photos and a description that was mostly, “not too much, not too little, just natural-looking”. She is a miracle worker—Rachel has such a wonderful, artistic eye. I felt so beautiful the entire day. If we could get married again tomorrow I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to hire Rachel. On a more practical note, Rachel traveled over an hour to make it to the house for 7am and her online invoicing system made things so easy for everyone—the morning of the wedding was so blissfully simple. She was so responsive to emails and so easy to get in touch with. I am so happy that Rachel and I found each other! I could not have picked a better makeup artist, and I wish I had more occasions to need one.

Rachel is an amazing makeup/hair artist, with the added bonus of being a joy to be around.

I would highly recommend Rachel for any event.

I got married on July 3, 2016 and I had a pretty big wedding party. Rachel made sure that every single girl in my wedding party was taken care of.

Read More is absolutely amazing, from my wedding trial to the day of, she made sure everything was exactly what I wanted in terms of hair and makeup. She came very early to my parents house and made sure it went smoothly. She and Gabi took their time with each girl including myself.

Very professional, personable, fun, nice, and extremely easy to work with! Thank you again, Rachel!!!

If you're looking for event or wedding day hair and makeup, look no further! Rachel is fabulously talented and best of all she comes to you!

I was able to sip a mimosa with my bridesmaids in the comfort of our rental home! My mom, sister, and I all loved our hair and makeup and received so many compliments. Rachel is talented and professional while still remaining down-to-earth--just what any bride would want on her wedding day!

How can I possibly say enough great things about Rachel and her absolutely stunning talent? Her passion for doing high-quality work and making people feel beautiful in their own skin overflows and is evident in everything that she does. Rachel provided hair styling for my June... Read More wedding, and we were all completely elated with the work that she did. Not only did she put a great deal of time and attention into making sure that my hair (the Bride's!) was perfect, but she also gave equal love to the other three women in our bridal party and my mother. I gave her a great deal of freedom to style the bridal party's hair in a way that made them feel happy with the one request that their hair be at least partially down, and she delivered on each and every person while still respecting and reflecting their individual personalities. One woman had very short hair, another incredibly long hair, and the third very curly and sometimes difficult hair to work with. After she worked her magic, each and every one of them not only looked even more gorgeous than usual, but also felt wonderful about the way that they looked. On top of that, she gave my mother a classy, practical up-do that reflected her wish to stay cool in the hot June weather while still looking stylish. Rachel is calm, cool, and collected throughout the preparation process, always making sure that the Bride gets priority but never leaving anyone out or rushing them in any way. She's focused and attentive to everyone's individual needs and desires, and it shows in her work. I absolutely loved having Rachel's kind and supportive demeanor during the emotional roller coaster of getting ready to walk down the aisle! I cannot possibly recommend her highly enough. She is a wonderful artist and will absolutely leave you looking....and feeling....beautiful in every way.

Finding a Makeup Artist or Hair Stylist is always a very delicate process. Trust is so vital in selection; I mean, you are literally putting your face in someone else's hands! Well as both an Event Stylist and client I trust no one more for makeup and styling than Rachel... Read More Marie. Rachel listens and begins with a great understanding of your wishes for your makeup style. Then she takes her expertise in skin care, product lines, color/styling trends, focusing on your particular assets and event, and creates a makeup look that exceeds your every expectation. What I particularly love about Rachel over other makeup artists I have hired for Events/Brides, as well as for myself, is that she isn't one note. She does not employ a technique just simply because it is trendy, nor does she create the same look over and over. Rachel Marie truly listens to the clients and their needs for that particular time and can achieve a wide range of looks for any age, skin type, occasion, etc. I had an event for which I was one of the Chairs and it was to be a very formal event with much publicity. Rachel achieved such a beautiful look that both met what I had envisioned for the evening and beyond. I felt beautiful, confident and ready for both the speaking that was required of me that evening, as well as the many photographs. The makeup selected felt light and yet I had the coverage necessary for a glamorous evening look, and long day into night. She has such a talent for selecting the appropriate color palette and applying products in a way that they don't feel heavy or uncomfortable. You feel like yourself, but better! Rather than some makeup experiences I have had in the past where one may feel like you're wearing a mask and don't quite feel like yourself. Also, her price points are very competitive and you will always feel you have received more than your money's worth. Finally, Rachel Marie is a delight. She herself, is beautiful inside and out. She comes to each styling job with great energy and focus. You will always feel comfortable discussing your look or asking her to make adjustments along the way during your session. You will and be the priority. Again, the trust placed in her very capable hands is the key to such success! I highly recommend her to any Bride or Client looking for a Makeup Stylist not just for one occasion, but for every milestone!
