Cincinnati: Flawless Airbrush Makeup and Tanning For Brides

Recently awarded the 2014 Couple's Choice award by Wedding Wire for Outstanding customer service and artistry!

My name is Rachel, and I am a freelance makeup artist with over 17 years of experience in the beauty industry. While a Cincinnati native, I trained formally at Makeup Designory in Los Angeles,CA. I have also worked as a regional artist for companies like Laura Mercier, Nars, and MAC cosmetics,where I have honed my skills on thousands of faces. I was also recently awarded "Makeup Artist of the Year" by RAWartists, a national organization that recognizes artists in all formats.

Bridal makeup is definitely my favorite type of work to do. I consider being a part of the most imporatant day of your life a privilege, and I guarantee to make you look your absolute best! I am highly skilled in traditional and airbrush makeup, as well as individual and strip lashes. I use only the finest products available to makeup artists. I come directly to you for on-location application, and also have several on-location hair stylists I work with that I can reccommend. We will work on creating a timeless, yet glamorous look for you that you will still love when you look at your photographs 20 years later. Your pictures are some of the only things you will have as mementos of your wedding, so please do not skimp on any of your beauty regime for that day!

I encourage you to contact to set up an appointment for a consultation. You will find me to be fun, friendly, professional, and reliable! Also feel free to view my personal website for letters from clients, and more pictures of my work. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you! For more info contact me at rachellisamua@gmail.com or 818-331-1976.

Sincerely,
Rachel Lisa Read less

I am SO glad that I hired Rachel for my wedding day! Rachel and her assistant Kara made me, my four bridesmaids, mom, and mother-in-law all feel beautiful that day. She was so supportive of our "Great Gatsby" wedding vision, and helped us to achieve the look we wanted. She made me feel at ease and less self-conscious, which can be a real challenge for me! In order to stay "picture perfect," I also hired Rachel to stay with us until the wedding reception. She was there with us all day to do touch-ups and keep us looking pretty. Her laughter is contagious and she has such a fun personality. My whole bridal party loved her! She is confident, talented, and kind. She was more than a make-up artist that day. She was truly part of the event. I feel so thankful that she was part of our day.

Rachel does AMAZING work! I don't normally wear a lot of makeup so I didn't have a good idea of what I wanted. Rachel managed to keep things natural, yet elegant and pretty. The makeup did not look overdone or heavy and it stayed on all night....even after dancing! I didn't need to reapply!

She is professional, personable, reasonable, and most of all....HILARIOUS! She did my makeup along with my bridesmaids and mother and everyone loved her!

Exceptional work with an exceptional personality to boot! Thank You Rachel!

I could not have asked for a better make-up artist for my wedding. A great idea is that both my mom and I did our trial just a couple days before the wedding date. I HIGHLY recommend this because you will have the same skin tone, hair color and style during your trial as you will on your wedding day. It's also fresh in Rachel's mind :)

But really, if you don't hire Rachel Lisa to do your wedding make-up you will miss out on the best look for your big day and making a good friend. I am not a usual make-up wearing person but I felt so comfortable with Rachel and I only stopped laughing when she had to put lip gloss on me.

Rachel was a recommendation from a friend and I couldn't have been more happy. During my trial it was the first time in my life I had ever looked in the mirror after my makeup artist was finished and been extremely happy with how I looked - to where I didn't want to change a thing!! She captured exactly what I wanted to look like. My pictures turned out flawless and I didn't even look overdone in real life. On top of her talent, Rachel is hilarious and makes you feel so amazing. I highly recommend her for any event. THANK YOU Rachel!!!!! :*

I had Kara, one of Rachel's team members, do my makeup as well as my bridesmaids for my wedding day. I was very happy with the results and my makeup looked exactly the same at the end of the night as it did when she finished it that morning! Kara was very open to my suggestions and changes and made me feel comfortable telling her what to change. I felt beautiful thanks to Kara!

Rachel Lisa is such an amazing make up artist. Not only is she extremely talented, she is so much fun! We had the best time working with her. She did make up for all our wedding party and completely exceeded our expectation for a Vintage glam look. We all totally felt like we belonged in an Old Hollywood film by the time she worked her magic. She went above and beyond to make our experience relaxing, stress free and so much fun. Altogether, the experience was unforgettable and the results were nothing short of AMAZING.

Rachel was fantastic to work with on my wedding day! She made everyone in my party look glamourous! I wanted a 1940’s glamourous look for my bridesmaids and me that day while still accommodating people in my party who didn’t wear as much makeup. Rachel was able to make everyone look dazzling while at the same time making everyone comfortable with their individual look, even my grandma and my mom. I had considered doing my own makeup with the assistance of my bridesmaids as most of us are pretty makeup savvy, BUT I’m so thrilled that we took the extra step and hired an expert. Our pictures turned out to be gorgeous because of her skills and the day was so much less stressful for everyone, because we just had to depend on her to make us look good. My seven bridesmaids were the 2nd thing I noticed (after my husband, of course) when I got to the alter, because they were stunningly beautiful and dazzling in the candlelight. Thank you, Rachel, for making this girl a very happy bride on my wedding day!!!

You need to book Rachel for your wedding day make-up - here's why:

I am extremely particular, so when it came to selecting my wedding vendors, especially my make-up artist, I wanted to make sure I only hired the best. While researching make-up artists in the Cincinnati area, I came across Rachel's site, and was so impressed by her portfolio, background, and experience, that I booked her without even doing a trial or meeting her - that's how impressed I was. The fact that she had developed her own makeup line (Rachel Lisa Makeup), and had done all of the research and development on the product to make sure they lived up to her high standards was remarkable.

When it came to Rachel doing my make-up, I was nothing short of thrilled. During my trial, when I looked in the mirror at the finished product, I could not stop looking at myself! It sounds funny, but that's how good she is - a make-up genius!! On my wedding day, Rachel not only did my make-up, but she and one of her team members did make-up for all of my bridesmaids, my mother, my now mother-in-law, and now sister-in-law. Everyone was absolutely in love with their make-up, and each woman looked just stunning.

Besides being a Make-Up Artist Genius, Rachel is also an absolute blast to be around. She is hilarious, and I can assure you that you'll enjoy being around her. I had such a great experience with Rachel that I am taking make-up lessons from her, which I am super-excited about.

The bottom line is: Rachel is the best of the best. Trust me, your wedding day make-up is not something you want to skimp on. Rachel will never be the least expensive option, but she is a seasoned professional, and worth every penny. There is definitely truth to the quote, "If you think it's expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur." Don't hire an amateur to do your make-up. Hire a professional -hire Rachel Lisa - it's one of the best wedding vendor decisions I could have made!
