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!

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

Hair and makeup made easy
Having never met me or any idea of what I looked like, Rachael stepped into my cabin with everything she could possibly need to make me look wonderful. She did a wonderful job of taking my thoughts on what I wanted and making them happen. At points during the process, she asked me to check my appearance and let her know if anything needed to be changed. What she had conceived on her own was so spot on that I didn't need to modify anything. Great work and great person to work with.Sent on 06/01/2021

I highly recommend Rachael for your wedding! She did a fabulous job styling my hair for the wedding, it looked beautiful and even withstood 40-50 mph winds! She was a pleasure to plan and spend time with on my wedding day. My only regret is that she didnt do my makeup as well, as I only learned she did makeup when she was styling my hair. Thank you again Rachael for helping to make our wedding day so special and perfectSent on 05/30/2021
