About

Based in Hazel Green, Alabama, Songbird Artistry by Rita Lorraine is a wedding makeup service. Rita Lorraine Parks, who goes by Lorraine, is the professional behind the company. Originally an opera singer, this artist has now been crafting makeup looks for clients for more than seven years. At the age of 12, she was first inspired by the idea of makeup and bridal beauty when she saw her cousin have her makeup done for her big day. She loved seeing how makeup was used to highlight her cousin's innate beauty and decided that she wanted to do the same for others.

Services Offered

Songbird Artistry by Rita Lorraine offers packages for the nearly wed, their parents, and the wedding party. Lorraine can also provide makeup services for individuals for other special events, such as bridal showers, engagement photo sessions, quinceañeras, school formals/dances, or any other special occasions you can think of!

Beautiful makeup & friendly

I have had Lorraine do my makeup on multiple special occasions and she does a great job making me feel beautiful and relaxed! As a mom of two, it can be hard to feel pretty but Lorraine was able to do that. She takes her time and makes sure that you love how you look! I even hired her to do my best friends makeup for an event!

Natural and Etherial makeup

I am SO glad I went with Rita who was absolutely amazing and obviously knows what she’s doing. I used her for my engagement pictures where I wanted a glam look and she did amazing makeup that looked beautiful on camera with dark berry lipstick.

Alternatively, I really wanted my wedding makeup to look more natural and glowy in person despite being a full face of makeup. It’s VERY rare that someone can create a makeup look that accentuates your natural beauty without it looking cakey, especially as makeup must be heavy to show up on camera.

She did a perfect job balancing this and was honest about what makeup was necessary to look nice in photos. I looked exactly like myself, just more beautiful without looking overdone. The pictures turned out perfectly and I didn’t look at all washed out or oily. She was very prepared, asking me ahead of time what I wanted and making sure to have products to do this on hand. She was professional, helpful, and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her!

Great service

My makeup was done beautifully, and she is a very nice and conversational person which makes the time fly while you are sitting in the chair. People kept asking who did my makeup!
