I used Rae Cosmetics for my wedding hair and makeup. I chose them because they were cruelty-free! I worked with Lisa in coordinating the services leading up to the wedding day. She was fantastic and kind, and when I raised a concern after the trial, she bent over backwards to... Read More work things out and exhibited great professionalism. Allan and Shelly were my hair and makeup artists on my wedding day. They came to my wedding venue to get us ready and were both super easy to have around that day. Plus they did a great job! Everyone I interfaced with at the studio was great. But props to Shelly, Lisa and Allan especially. I've already recommended them to someone else planning a wedding in Austin and my wedding was only a few days ago. Thanks for everything!

I went to Rae Cosmetics for my bridal hair and makeup, and Leticia did an AMAZING job on both. I didn’t have a chance to do a trial session, so I was nervous, but Leticia was a total pro. She consulted with me every step of the way, and created exactly the look I was hoping for:... Read More very natural makeup, and a beautiful updo that incorporated fresh flowers.

I used Rae for my bridal hair and makeup, and they did an absolutely flawless job. I had Shelly for my hair, and Allan for my makeup.

Rachel Gonzales at Rae Cosmetics was such an asset to me before and the day of my wedding. As someone who doesn't wear foundation but likes a polished natural look - and wanted to look flawless for my Texas summer wedding - Rachel delivered perfectly! I honestly have never liked... Read More professional makeup application in the past - it always looked and felt heavy, greasy and fake, like I was a mature lady on The View. Not with Rachel. During my pre-wedding day makeup application trial run, Rachel patiently crafted the exact makeup look I was going for, and was fun, helpful, and not snooty at all! She also set me up with a great day-of hairstylist that day as well. They both arrived at the 4 Seasons early on my wedding day, and worked diligently and efficiently, helping to make my day-of getting ready experience stress-free. I highly recommend Rachel to any Austin bride who wants a magazine-ready look as well as a fresh feeling face. Rae cosmetics are also SUPERB. My makeup never once melted off during my partial-outdoors wedding at Barr Mansion in late August - amazing! It felt comfortable and light the entire evening, and looked beautiful. I bought a few items and it will now be my go-to makeup ( although I'm not a big makeup person.) GREAT experience all around - Thank you Rachel and Rae Cosmetics!
