Who am I?

My name is Rachel, I'm married and have two sons. I have two passions in life, Makeup and Ballroom & Latin Dancing and also write a blog that covers both topics, Beauty and The Ballroom (click the link below to check it out!). Having danced for the last nine years I have learnt a lot about makeup application and having 'the right look'. Around 10 years ago, I briefly trained in bridal makeup but at that point, didn't have the time to take it on as a full time career. Fast forward a few years and after a lot of self-taught practice, I decided to undertake a qualification in Professional Makeup Artistry. I have a keen interest in both Bridal and Editorial makeup looks and gain experience whenever an opportunity arises. I truly believe that what you get from makeup isn't just bold or subtle lips or striking or smokey eyes, it's the way makeup makes you feel that is key. My aim is to help make you feel your best on your special day because after all, it's all about you!
