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 is such a sweet and fun girl and is an expert at creating beautiful, flawless looks. She and another makeup artist (also named Rachel) did the makeup for my wedding for myself, 7 bridesmaids and 2 mothers. At first, not all of the bridesmaids wanted to get their makeup done, but when they saw how beautiful her work was they were soon in line to get their makeup done too. I'm so thrilled with the work that she did. I'm also happy with the lipstick and lip gloss that I purchased from her line and will be going back to Rachel to buy more.

Rachel was amazing! There are really no words I can use to explain how she made me feel on my wedding day. She has the best personality and EVERYONE loved her! I am a makeup queen and do not let others ever do my makeup- I was nervous. She made me feel absolutely perfect on my day. The hair was a complete disaster for my bridesmaids and I, but Rachel worked some real magic and made us all feel so awesome that the hair didn't matter. ALL of my maids talked about her for the rest of the day (and still) and how they loved not only her AMAZING work but her personality as well. My mother wears only mascara and some powder.. she was very nervous about having makeup done... she really did it as a favor to me because I loved Rachel already... Rachel made my mother actually cry when she saw herself in the mirror. She said she didn't even look that pretty when she was my age. It was a beautiful moment to see her so happy. I cannot recommend Rachel enough. She does exactly what you ask for and she is worth every single penny. Don't think twice about booking her. No matter what the occasion... she will make you feel like you are the most beautiful person in the world.

Rachel was the best makeup artist I could have asked for. Her personality made me relaxed and happy while getting ready for the biggest day of my life. She is so talented and I trusted her completely. She really listens to her clients. My mother-in-law is super picky about everything and loved what Rachel did! I would reccommend Rachel to anyone who wants to laugh and look gorgeous on their big day!

First off let me start off by saying I LOVE RACHEL!! If you are looking for a make up artist in the Cincinnati area I wouldn't look any farther. Not only is Rachel amazing at what she does she is fun (dancing and jamming to music while doing my makeup which I loved) and all personality which is much needed on your stressful wedding day. It is so refreshing when you deal with so many people in this industry that have no personality at all. I have been fortunate to have Rachel do my make up for friends wedding as well as my engagment and wedding photos on top of giving me a spray tan a few days before my wedding. My spray tan....was AMAZING let me just say. My skin looked perfect and flawless without the orange look which no bride wants on there wedding day. (mind you I had some serious tan lines) Not only that, Rachel made me feel so comfortable with her. My make up everytime she has done it has been stunning, and photographs so beautifully. I asked her to "beat my face up," aka make me look fierce, on my wedding day because I am a total make up girl and she did just that. She worked my face and it looked amazing. Trust me when I say this let her do what she does. I was so glad that I let her do her thing because it turned out more beautiful than I ever dreamed. I told Rachel before the wedding that my mom was nervous about getting her make up done, and she made my mom laugh the entire time, and made her look gorgeous. Rachel isn't just a make up artist she becomes a friend and I am so happy that I booked her. I could go on for days about how amazing she is, but she knows how to make you feel special, and laugh on a day that can be so stressful on a bride!

You can't go wrong with Rachel. She did the make up for my entire wedding party last weekend and was nothing short of amazing. She made my bridesmaids and myself look so beautiful. She was able to do completely different looks for each girl and they all looked stunning. We all received multiple compliments the entire night. You will not be disappointed with Rachel, her talent cannot be beat. On top of this, she was really fun to have with us during the day. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Rachel is the BEST!!!! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to look SUPER FABULOUS for her wedding!!! Rachel made me look outstanding. I wanted a classic and elegant look, and that's exactly what she gave me. My entire bridal party also loved how their makeup looked. We got compliments all night from guests on how great our makeup looked. Even better, when we got our pictures, the makeup photographed beautifully! My every day makeup is pretty basic, nothing extraordinary, so it was super exciting to have Rachel make me look awesome!!! Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She was very accessible, always promptly responded to emails/texts, and she is very professional. I had her do my makeup for several other special occasions (engagement photos, etc.) and I always felt like she cared about getting the exact look I was going for. She has a lot of experience and it shows in her work! One other point I will add...she told me how much time she would need the day of the wedding and she was exactly on schedule. She was very efficient and kept things on time. I really appreciated that because it can get really stressful if you get behind on the day of the wedding. Overall, I am soooo happy I hired Rachel!!! She really was awesome and a pleasure to work with. Every time I look at my pictures, I will be reminded of how great my makeup looked!!!

Rachel did such a fantastic job on my makeup!! The most important thing is that she gets to know the type of person you are. She wants you to look and feel like yourself. I felt confident and comfortable with my "look" and it shows in my wedding pictures!! Initially only one bridesmaid wanted to get their makeup done but after seeing her work she accommodated two more of them on the spot. She is fun to be around but extremely professional at the same time. She truly loves what she does!!

I booked Rachel during a transitional point in her career and have never second guessed my decision. It is obvious her professionalism is attained from years of experience in the beauty industry, a quality any bride will find extremely comforting. She was super engaged, responding to my inquiries within hours, even minutes, via her iPhone which was very much appreciated being an out of town bride. Rachel was reasonable for my wedding budget but in my opinion, you can't put a price on the feeling you get when she hands you the mirror to see your final look. I was and forever will be thrilled with the quality and images of my bridal makeup.

I hired Rachel as my makeup artist but she became more of a friend of the family during my wedding week. Not only did she do makeup for myself, my mother and my 6 bridesmaids, she also did my bridal spray tan, another service of hers I would highly recommend. Previously spending time with Rachel before the wedding for my makeup trial and spray tan made it all the more exciting/relieving to see her face walking through the door of my parent's house the morning of the big day.

You can read the reviews all you want, but the images of her work speak for themselves. I'd book her again in a heartbeat!

I was so excited to come across Rachel Lisa's portfolio during my search for a make-up artist. She does fabulous work and I was instantly convinced that I needed to invest in her. And I am so glad that I did. I felt absolutely beautiful and confident the day of my wedding, not to mention that our pictures turned out really wonderful as a result! I HIGHLY recommend her. Also, if you're a winter bride, she does a very natural spray tan! I don't spray tan, but I was happy I did on this occasion. And not only is she awesome at what she does, she has an awesome personality. It was great to work with her before the wedding, and great to see her the day of my wedding when the nerves started to set in. Thanks Rachel Lisa for being a part of my day! -The Bride.

What can I say about Rachel? She was simply AMAZING!!! I wanted hair and makeup on site due to my bridesmaids coming from out of town and I am so glad Rachel was referred. At first I wasn't going to have my makeup professionally done because I wasn't sure if it would be worth the expense and I was running out of time to book. However, I don't regret anything about booking Rachel. Not only was she funny, professional, personable, but I received comments such as, "You're the most beautiful bride I've ever seen" and "You look like a princess." Wow, really? I ended up crying much of my way down the aisle out of pure happiness and amazement at marrying my best friend and my makeup didn't budge! It looked as great at the end of the reception as it did two hours before the ceremony! I definitely recommend getting the false lashes as they are a beautiful addition! Rachel also offers makeup classes and I am eager to take part so I can learn some of the tricks of the trade! Thanks Rachel for having a hand in the biggest day of my life! Your work made me truly feel beautiful!

Rachel did my makeup for my engagement photos and wedding and did an amazing job!! I felt so relaxed on my wedding day because I knew she would make me look beautiful--and she did! Not only that, but I had a million beauty questions leading up to my big day and she was so helpful. Rachel has so much talent and knowledge, I would absolutely recommend her to any bride!

Also, my bridesmaids and I loved her so much that we hired her for a makeup party where she taught us how to look gorgeous everyday!! She is a rockstar!!

Not only that, but I had a million beauty questions leading up to my big day and she was so helpful. Rachel has so much talent and knowledge, I would absolutely recommend her to any bride!

Also, my bridesmaids and I loved her so much that we hired her for a makeup party where she taught us how to look gorgeous everyday!! She is a rockstar!! Read less

Where do I even begin. Rachel was amazing. I went to her wanting to look like Kim Kardashian. Although she was unable to give me that she did give me a more beautiful version of myself. I originally was just going to have my makeup done in the salon but the more I thought about getting married in August (with Cincinnati humidity) and how angry I would be if I were to looked back at pictures and was unhappy with my make up. She was worth the investment and I would use her again in a heart beat. My husband even threw cake in my face and my make up pretty much stayed put. Still to this day I get a million compliments on my make up (and my tan...Rachel did a custom spray tan for me before my day).

Rachel is AMAZING. I would recommend her to anyone and tell everyone they have to have her on their wedding day (or for any special event)! Through what is such a stressful time in your life, Rachel is the one who calms you down and helps you through the pressure, especially on the day of the wedding. She is exactly who you want to be with you getting ready. She is so personable and my friends and family just loved her! I just loved the moment when my 85 year old Grandmother looked at herself for the first time in the mirror after Rachel was through with her makeup-she was shocked and she gasped so loud, she loved everything about what Rachel did. I think even better was when my Grandfather saw her for the first time-we called it their own "first look".
I couldn't have been luckier to have Rachel for my wedding. She listened to what I wanted and executed it flawlessly. She thinks outside the box and isn't afraid to try things and if you don't like them, then she will go another direction but I don't know why you would because as someone who doesn't know much about makeup, I just trust her-she know's what she's doing and she is passionate about her work!
We had me, my two bridesmaids, my mother, mother-in-law and Grandmother get their makeup done by her and they all couldn't stop talking about her, even months after the wedding.
Rachel, you're the best-I can't thank you enough for everything!

Rachel Lisa Makeup Artistry responded with the following comments:

Thank you Jennifer- I will NEVER forget the moment your grandmother saw her makeup, and the way she giggled, and the moment your grandfather saw her for the first time. This may be a first where ALL of the wedding vendors were truly in tears! And girl, thanks for trusting me with your makeup, cause that less-traditional lip color we chose looked AMAZING on you!

As a spring bride, I was nervous about my lack of a tan for my wedding day. I didn't want to be tanning bed red or spray tan orange. I was so thrilled with the results of the most natural looking airbrush tan from Rachel as well as a makeup job that made me feel flawless the entire day. She listened to exactly what I wanted during my trial and came through for me and my girls on my wedding day! Rachel is a true expert and I felt very lucky to have her as part of my wedding team. I have and will continue to recommend her services to anyone who wants the best tan or makeup job in Cincinnati!

Rachael Lisa at Angel City Makeup was the makeup artist for my engagement pictures and for my wedding. I could not have been happier with her services and would recommend her above ANY artist in the city. After my engagement pictures came out everyone wanted to know two things 1) who was my photographer and 2) who did my make up.

All of my bridesmaids were so excited to have Rachel do their makeup as well. She came to my bridal suite and one by one made us all feel beautiful!! Her airbrush technique is flawless. Our skin looked and felt amazing, not cakey or heavy and she matched our skin tones perfectly. She enhances the natural beauty within all of us. I never felt as beautiful as I did the day of my wedding and I have Rachel to help thank for that.

Not only is she an amazing artist she's SO MUCH fun!!

I give he 5 stars in every category and would give her more if I could!

Rachel Lisa was amazing to work with! She went above and beyond for me, my family, and bridesmaids. Everyone loved their makeup and each of us received so many compliments. I had a bridesmaid that was not going to get any makeup as she had planned to do her own, but when she saw the other girls that had their makeup done, she changed her mind and had Rachel do her makeup as well! Also, I had a hair stylist come in to do all of the girls hair and Rachel timed everything perfect with the stylist so that there was plenty of extra time for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves.

What's even better about Rachel Lisa is that she also teaches classes for anyone that would like to learn how to apply makeup on yourself and what colors/products would work best for you.

Rachel was a referral from a friend of mine and as my friend had promised, I would be extremely happy with having her as a part of my special day.

I am so glad that I chose Rachel Lisa to do both my spray tans and my makeup for my wedding as well as my engagement photos! I absolutely recommend her for both services. I met her for the first time when I scheduled a spray tan -- and she immediately put me at ease and I asked if I could schedule her for my wedding. Her spray tans are amazing and her makeup is even better.

I was a very low-key bride (in fact, my makeup and my hair were the only two things I picked for the wedding -- my husband handled the rest) but I am extremely picky about how I look. I showed Rachel pictures of looks I liked and she mixed them to create a perfect look for me! One of bridesmaids never wears makeup -- but Rachel gave her a gorgeous bold look that she immediately loved. My other bridesmaid went with a more demure look -- once again, she loved it.

Even more awesome, when she had a pipe burst in her apartment, she traveled 45 minutes out of her way to come to my apartment for my spray tan! GLOWING recommendation -- if you're in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, schedule Rachel!
