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

Rachel was an absolute godsend! The week of our wedding, I had a horrible hair and makeup trial by a company that I had originally booked. I left the trial in a complete panic, having no faith that this company would be able to give me the hair and makeup look that I had been wanting. I started hunting around the internet for makeup artists that might have availability on such short notice. When I saw Rachel Lisa's page, I knew she would be perfect! And as luck would have it, due to the holiday weekend, Rachel actually had some availability for my bridesmaids and me. Rachel got back to me BY PHONE within 2 hours of inquiring and was so accommodating to my wedding day schedule.

My bridesmaids and I had the BEST time with Rachel on my wedding day! Rachel had us down to her studio and let us hang out, laugh, eat, and listen to music while we got our makeup done. She was able to complete 4 makeup applications in less than 2 hours...it was amazing! And that even included all of the breaks that we had to take for laughing! Rachel was really responsive to our ideas for our makeup and asked a lot of questions to make sure that she was giving us the look that we wanted. It was very easy to see that Rachel is extremely talented...she did not rely on airbrushing for me or my bridesmaids. She was able to hone in on our best features and make them pop. I can say with all honesty that we all looked our absolute best on my wedding day. I cannot thank Rachel enough for her help in coming to my rescue!!! I was so lucky to have her as a part of my wedding, and I highly recommend that you contact Rachel when you are planning your special day!

There are some people you just click with immediately. Rachel is one of them! After asking for a few recommendations, I quickly found that everyone I knew in the Cincinnati area absolutely loved Rachel and her work. It's no easy feat to pull together a full intimate wedding and elopement in just short of a month, but Rachel was available on our date and I am SO thrilled that she was!

We got caught in a crazy rainstorm and some awful traffic on the way to our hotel room and, honestly, I had just a few pre-wedding jitters just a few hours before our ceremony. She instantly put me and everyone in the room instantly at ease with her amazing and fun personality!! She sculpted my face to the gods! I couldn't believe it. I looked like me but so much more glam! My husband told me that he had never seen my makeup done so well! It held up through the most humid of days and I didn't want to take off my face at the end of the night.

There are so many options when searching for your vendors for your wedding. As an event planner and designer myself, I know that your team of vendors is so key to making your day go smoothly. I've worked with so many wonderful beauty pros, but she takes the tiara. Hire Rachel. Her skill and craft is unsurpassed! She'll light up your day and give you such a fun getting ready experience!

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!

Rachel Lewis was the makeup artist for my wedding in October. She was prompt, professional, and knows her business well. I was very happy with her services and would recommend her to others. She was quick to respond to my questions before my wedding day and did a beautiful job on my makeup as well as all of my bridesmaids.

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!!!!! :*
