Hi, I'm Rachel!  I'm a professional freelance makeup artist and aesthetician.  I've been doing makeup and skin care for 9 years now and feel so fortunate to be able to do something I love!   I do makeup for all events and occasions.   I adore my Clientele and love to help them feel confident, radiant, and beautiful for Any Special Moment.  Wherever there are cameras flashing and pictures taken, I want to make sure my Clients look vibrant and stunning in every one. 

I'm very happily married to the love of my life, and my best friend since freshman year of high school, Stephen.   I have Two Amazing, Strong-Willed, Sassy, & beautiful daughters who Are My world, Sophia & Alexandria.  My top indulgences are reading (Guilty Pleasure are Romance Novels), music (I love some heavy bass, Dubstep is my fave), Pinterest (I am a Pinterest Mom and I'm not sorry), Milka white chocolate bars, Sheet Masks (I want to try every.single.one) and, of course, makeup.

I'm originally from Las Vegas, but have been fortunate enough to travel the world.  My husband and I have had many adventures across Europe, Africa, the states, and now asia.  We are a military family, so after being in europe for 3 years, then back in the states for 10 years, we are finally traveling the other side of the globe in japan!  We've met tons of interesting people, are learning from many different cultures, and are making some great friends.  Great memories of good times will be with me for life...
