R.A.E. Makeup Artistry is the expression of my passion for showing women the beauty within themselves.
I'm Rachel Danielle, and I found my love for fashion and makeup in the glow of Los Angeles. After moving to Raleigh in 2002, my city and country tastes collided. Some would say that I'm a Rad Cali Girl with a Sweet Southern Heart! (Okay. That's corny. But I like it!)
Over the past 17 years, through my cosmetic service, training, and teaching, I've made it my mission to help women feel confidence and joy expressed in the art of their cosmetic style. Whether it's a glamorous Hampton look or a simple trending day-to-day style, I love bringing my client's vision to life! My passion is that every woman would be inspired by her own beauty. As a beauty coach and makeup artist, I feel on top of the world when I get to witness this in my clients. It makes my heart beam to see a woman smile back at herself! That is why I love what I do and that is what R.A.E. Makeup Artistry is about.
I have had the incredible honor of being published in The Knot Carolina's Magazine (2018), Cottage Hill Magazine and featured in Trendy Bride and the tropical fine art wedding publication, Bajan Wed. It is both exciting and humbling to see my work in print! (And, who knows? You could be next!)
Whether you are preparing for prom, an anniversary dinner, or the biggest event of your life , I'm here to make you look and feel beautiful, inside and out. Or, maybe you never really learned the right way to put on your "every-day face" and you need some guidance. I'm here for that, too! (And, my friends will tell you, I'm a total hoot. We'll have so much fun!) Make a wish on my service page, say hello, and ask your questions. I can't wait to hear from you!
