Face of Makeup is a hair and makeup service based out of Salida, Colorado. Your wedding day is arguably your most photographed day, and you need to be photo-ready at all times. The talented artists at Face of Makeup provide beautiful hair styling and stunning makeup application to keep you looking your best for all of your wedding festivities. The team specializes in airbrush makeup application that looks flawless in photos and lasts all day. You may also opt for traditional style makeup, and there are a variety of packages to choose from to fit your wedding day needs.
I (Rachael Hoch) began FaceofMakeup in 2008 after working with another artist in the film industry on a "side gig" that happened to be a wedding. I immediately gravitated towards the enjoyment that I felt having helped someone look and feel their best that normally doesn't get that experience. I felt so proud of what I was able to do for the bride and so fulfilled by the experience. I knew this would be a part of my career forever. Now, having left the film industry after 12 years and relocated out to CO, I am able to turn that into reality! I continued to do weddings throughout my career in television and film and truly found each one to be a passion project more than a job. So, today, I offer you myself and a few other amazing artists that also love to be there with you, that also enjoy the experience, and that also feel fulfilled and proud to be a part of your day! We aren't looking at this as a job, rather an experience that is full of love, laughs, tears, hugs, and all around good times for everyone. We will be part of your group, just there to blend in and help you and your bridal party feel your best and look your best! Most of the brides that we work with end up being friends forever. Take a chance here to look amazing, feel amazing, and meet some great people while you're doing it!
Face of Makeup provides on-site beauty services, so you can relax in the comfort of your venue or hotel while you and your wedding party are waiting to be beautified! Consultations and trials are also offered, as well as men's grooming services. Hair services include blowouts, hair extensions, updos, textured styling, and haircuts.

Rachael made me feel stunning!
Working with Rachael was a highlight of my wedding. We had a pre-COVID design session for a little extra and it was such a joy to get to know her process beforehand. Then we knew what to do on the day of my wedding - which was a much more distracted space with folks asking me lots of questions. But Rachael did her thing And I felt lovely. The whole afternoon and evening all I had (and continue to have in my photos) are buckets of compliments. I loved my hair especially. She made it look better than I’d imagined! I even had a cold sore develop the week before and when I emailed her about it, she wasn’t fazed a bit! She just chose a darker lipstick and voila! You couldn’t see a thing. She also did the hair and makeup for my Matron of Honor, and pinned up my mom's hair and they both looked gorgeous! There’s nothing she can’t do with her vast knowledge from years of working for news networks and with celebrities. And those stories made working with her even more fun! Thanks so much, Rachael! You’re amazing!Sent on 08/17/2020

Just book her already - she is magic!
Rachael was incredible to work with from the start. She was very responsive from my initial inquiry & we exchanged multiple emails prior to the wedding & she was always super quick to respond. I rarely wear much make-up or do my hair but Rachael made me feel so comfortable in the chair. You will feel like you've known her forever! She is truly talented at what she does. I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day thanks to her. She is magic!Sent on 09/01/2020
