Rachael was responsive, easy to work with, flexible and most importantly, made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. She listened to what I wanted, provided her feedback and suggestions, and we worked together to create the exact look I was hoping for on my wedding day. I even asked Rachael
if she could get me the lipstick she was using on me so I could reapply the day of and she did! I highly recommend Rachael.Sent on 08/23/2019

Wonderful makeup for my wedding
Rachael was a dream to work with. She was easy to reach and make an appointment with, even on a day that was already busy for her. She also took all of my thoughts and ideas into account and made sure it looked exactly as I was hoping. I was initially hesitant about airbrushing, but I really loved how it looked! And it felt great! It came out looking natural yet appropriate for the day--with a killer red lip! I loved it. Rachael was also wonderful to work with, made me feel relaxed and in good hands. Thank you!Sent on 08/29/2019
Face of Makeup's reply:Thank you Claire! It was awesome to meet you and such a pleasure to help on your wedding day! Congrats!

Face of Makeup's reply:Thank you so much Katie! It was a pleasure working with you and your friends and family. I am so glad everything went well and you had a wonderful wedding day!

Rachael is AMAZING in every way!
I booked Rachael for my adventure sunrise elopement after my other makeup artist pulled out unexpectedly, and rudely. Rachael was great from the start. She assured me she could be there anytime day or night and do hair and makeup for my mom, sister, sister in law, and mother in law for the family ceremony happening later in the day.
Two days before our big day, my face broke out into a horrible, painful heat rash so it was dry, flaky, itchy and painful. I was panicking. Rachael assured me it would be okay and that she does airbrushing so she won't be rubbing my skin and irritating it even more. Rachael showed up to do my HMU at 12:30am for my elopement (mind you we did not do a trial run or anything). She was right on time and SO friendly! I felt like we had been friends forever in the first minutes of our interaction. She found the best lighting in the house, set up, and listened to exactly what I wanted. She truly made me feel like a queen. She kept stopping so I could look at myself in a mirror to make sure I like it. I was worried foundation matching, but once again, she nailed it. My hair was exactly what I wanted, as was my makeup. She even gave me a brand new lip gloss for touch ups.
A few hours later (5:45am) Rachael came back to the house to do the HMU for my mom, sister, sister in law, and mother in law. A few people in that bunch are very hard to please (my mom and sister in law). Well both the hard to please people loved her and loved their hair and makeup. I have never seem my mom think she was beautiful, and Rachael made her feel beautiful. They all loved her and her work.
After everyone went to the venue, I had to come back to get a touch up before our family ceremony. Rachael was there and ready to roll. We wiped off all my face makeup because I felt like my heat rash skin needed it. She redid my makeup, re-curled my hair and I was ready for the next ceremony.
I cannot recommend Rachael enough. She is relatable, funny, knows how to do amazing HMU, and is just a really awesome person. I am so glad my other HMU lady pulled out and left me in the lurch because if she hadn't I would've never gotten to meet Rachael and experience her talent.
Thank you Rachael for making me and everyone else look and feel beautiful!Sent on 07/12/2019
Face of Makeup's reply:I am THRILLED that you were happy with everything on your big day/night 😜 it was so much fun to spend that time with you and your family. I feel like I made friends there and got to help a beautiful person enjoy her special moments getting married and celebrating! You are a gem, inside and out! Thank you for having me, thank you for being awesome to work with, and thank you for taking time to write this wonderful review!!!!

Rachel is hands down one of the most genuine and wonderful humans to work with! My (now) husband and I decided to plan an Elopement within a month time frame. I reached out with Rachel and she immediately responded with her availability , rates, and when she would be in the Denver Metro Area for a trail. Upon meeting her she was so friendly, personable, and such a joy to work with! She was always so responsive to my questions and concerns. On the day of our wedding she arrived early and was ready to make our big day as specialty as she could. Her work was absolutely fantastic. My hair and make up looked absolutely perfect and I could not have been happier with Rachel’s services! I would hands down recommend Rachel to every one! Thank you so much Rachel!Sent on 06/19/2019

Face of makeup outstanding
I booked Rachael at Face of Makeup for my wedding day in April. She was amazing! She did the hair and makeup for our 3 bridesmaids, as well as for myself and my bride! It was outstanding! We have never looked better! She perfectly captured what we wanted and made us all look our very best for our wedding! Rachael is the nicest person! She helped calm my nerves on the wedding day and she even did our hair and makeup trials just 2 days before the wedding! It was more than I had ever dreamed!Sent on 07/26/2019

Beautiful Inside & Out
Rachael was beyond a pleasure to work with! I had concerns with her being able to handle so many people at once, but she surpassed my expectations! She did hair and make up for 6 the morning prior to my wedding. She maintained professionalism in the hectic rush that comes about as the time approaches. She also was a joy to talk to and get to know! Additionally, she made me feel like a priority in the midst of hair/make up trials prior to my wedding. Personally, I live in Denver and so scheduling wasn't the easiest, but she found time for me. I HIGHLY recommend Rachael!Sent on 12/29/2018

Treasure in Salida
I am so grateful to have found Rachael! I am pretty minimal when it comes to applying my makeup but for my wedding I had some specific requests. I wanted to hide some annoying acne scars while maintaining a natural bride look. As soon as I met Rachael I knew I hit the jackpot..She listens and understood my vision right away and made me feel like I was hanging out with one of my best girlfriends. She is master at hair and makeup and goes step by step through the process so there was no surprises! I felt so confident and truly beautiful on my wedding day. what more could a girl ask for! Thank you RachaelSent on 12/31/2018

Lovely hair/makeup + overall experience!
I am so grateful to have had Rachael do hair/makeup on my wedding day. She was flexible throughout the entire process which, for those of you looking starting the search for vendors , is a huge deal. She arrived early and was responsive the days leading up. The airbrushing really makes your face look smooth and she was so friendly, calm and professional. All the bridesmaids absolutely loved her. I highly recommend her!Sent on 12/28/2018

I absolutely loved working with Rachael! She was super responsive throughout the whole planning process and was willing to work with me through every step until we landed on the perfect package for my group. On the day of the wedding, she was such a pleasure to work with and everyone loved their makeup! I wanted a really natural look for everyone and she succeeded in making us all look beautiful but still look like ourselves. I would definitely book Rachael again!Sent on 10/09/2018

Loved, loved, loved Rachael!
We LOVED Rachael! She did hair and make up for me and my bride. She traveled to us (and was extremely flexible with our very last minute planning - we weren't sure where we would be getting ready until the day before and she was very laid back and easy about that), brought all of the necessary equipment, did an amazing job, had tons of experience (coming from years doing make up for a news network) and (icing on the cake) was incredibly nice and funny! We truly can't rave about Rachael enough - we looked gorgeous and had fun doing it!Sent on 01/02/2019

Rachael was awesome to work with! I found her on Wedding Wire and was so pleased with the results for my wedding. She came to my house in Buena Vista with her associate, Lisa, and both did a fantastic job with mine and my girlfriends' hair and makeup. She was responsive, answered my many many questions. I would definitely recommend her for all your wedding hair needs!Sent on 08/06/2018

Rachael did the makeup for my wedding last weekend and we couldn't stop raving about her the whole time. After getting some of my pictures back this week, I can't believe how amazing the makeup looks on everyone. I didn't have time to complete a trial but Rachael was still able to understand perfectly what I was looking for. She was easy to talk to and communicate with, which was so appreciated in the craziness of wedding planning. Don't hesitate to hire her- you will be so happy you did.Sent on 07/07/2018

I cannot give enough stars to Rachael Hoch and Face of Makeup! She recently did the hair and makeup for my bridal party in Telluride Colorado and was so accommodating, easy, pleasant, friendly and wonderful to work with! My friend's hair and makeup was perfect and she was such a friendly and pleasurable addition to our chaotic bridal morning :)Sent on 07/02/2018
Rachel was easy to communicate, sign the contract, follow up as the date approached and she was very open to all requests! I cannot say enough great things about her and her professionalism and will recommend her services to EVERYONE I know. Thank you Thank you Thank you Rachael for being such a huge part of our day!
Face of Makeup's reply:Thank you SO much for this review and taking the time to do it. I cannot tell you how much fun it was to meet you and all of your girls! I felt like one of the bunch just hanging out with friends, it was really great and I really appreciate you having me as a part of it all!

Rachael is simply amazing!! She did such a incredible job with my makeup, bridesmaids, my mother and mother in law. She was extremely easy to work with and very responsive to emails and texts. I was so incredibly happy with my makeup on the day of my wedding! I just simply cannot say enough good things about her! You'd be crazy not to hire her!!Sent on 07/11/2018

Rachael came to my house for the trial just to make my life easier! The wedding makeup was absolutely beautiful and exactly what I wanted (even when I wasn't sure what that meant, she helped figure it out). She was very responsive, friendly, and reasonably priced. Rachael even helped coordinate the hairdresser because we had nine women who needed hair/makeup; the hairdresser worked seamlessly with her. I highly recommend booking with her. I can't believe I found her on a whim for my Mt. Princeton wedding and I'm so thankful I did!Sent on 07/16/2018
Katie · Married on 03/10/2018
I loved working with Rachael for my wedding! She included a trial as part of the package which allowed us to chat through what I was looking for and she delivered. I felt like I looked like myself, but still felt glam! She and her sister did the makeup of a bride, 12 bridesmaids, mother of the bride, and little fun for the flower girl in the timeframe we had and even finished early!Sent on 07/13/2018
Rachael was easy to work with and brought a fun but calming presence to my wedding day. I would certainly recommend her to any bride!
Kelly · Married on 10/08/2016
Rachael was SUCH a pleasure to work with! She was on-time, responsive, and professional-- on top of being sweet, fun, and absolutely incredible at what she does. Hair and makeup for myself, bridal party, and mothers were gorgeous! I would book her again in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/21/2016

Rachael was amazing! From the makeup trial to the day of the wedding, she was so fun, professional, sweet, on time and so talented. Rachael, Tara and their assistant did hair and makeup for my bridal party, my mom, mother in law and myself and everyone looked gorgeous! Also, they gave us lip gloss to keep us looking amazing all evening! I would book her again and recommend her to any future bride without question! She is hands down the best hair and make up artist in Atlanta!Sent on 12/27/2016

Thanks for making me a beautiful, comfortable bride!Sent on 07/31/2015
Everyone loved Rachel Hoch, even at 4 am!
She has done my hair and make up in the past as a bridesmaid and she didn't disappoint. Both styles of hair and make up were totally different but she got them both right. Both times they lasted for 24 hours still looking sharp!
angela · Married on 07/19/2014
I absolutely loved having Rachael Hoch do my makeup as well as my bridesmaid and mother's! She transformed us into beautiful ladies that day and I felt like a princess. She was so dedicated in her work and you could tell she was going to make her final product perfect. she was so flexible with us as far as what hairstyles we wanted. I would recommend her highly to any future bride!Sent on 07/24/2014

Amazing amazing service!! I could not have asked for a better person to do hair and make-up on my wedding day.Sent on 06/04/2014
I contacted Rachael sometime around a year ago and we scheduled our trial run for December. She came to my house and really listened to me to help create the look I wanted for my wedding day. She was very responsive the next few months as I bounced ideas around for my bridesmaids.
The day of the wedding was fantastic. She arrived with her sister (who is also amazing). We all looked incredible - I felt truly beautiful and my bridal party looked sensational. I chose an undo for my bridesmaids, however two of them have short hair. In no way was this an issue for Rachael - by the time she was done it looked like they could have had hair down to the middle of the back. It looked like a real undo and the same as all the girls with longer hair. Everyone's make up looked amazing - they do airbrushing and I felt like I had full coverage without feeling suffocated by heavy make up. I got married in the south in May, so the make up truly stood up to the test of heat and humidity. Additionally, I have very sensitive skin and I did not break out at all.
Not only was the make-up and hair flawless, but Rachael was willing to stay and touch me up for an additional two hours after we were done. She came to the wedding venue with me, and I felt so comfortable knowing she was there in case any mishaps should occur.
I was complimented so many times on my hair and make-up and so was the bridal party and my mother (whose make up she also did).
I know when my sister gets married who we will be calling and I would recommend her to anyone for any professional hair and make-up needs. She is wonderful!
