I dont even know where to start this review. My experience with Rachel and Color Me Gorgeous was perfect. I didn’t know much about the makeup industry and I was referred to Rachel by someone else. I booked a trial with her and fell in love. She is extremely sweet and did an amazing job. She answered any questions I had beforehand and ensured I received exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. Her assistant Grace was very nice and helpful as well. All of my girls loved their makeup and we were receiving compliments all night. My favorite part was that Rachel saved my make up for last and spent extra time on my look to really perfect it. She really loves and cares about her brides and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to do my make up for such a special day. I can’t say thank you enough!!! And if you’re questioning whether or not to book Color Me Gorgeous, DO IT!


Rachel is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. I was a bridesmaid for a wedding that she did my makeup for - not only is she an incredible makeup artist but she also is a gem of a human being. She made us all feel so empowered and got the party started (at 5 a.m. might I add)! My makeup stayed on for over 12 hours which goes to show just how amazing she is at her work. Anyone would be extremely lucky to have Rachel & the Color Me Gorgeous team as their makeup artists on their big day!

Rachel….oh my gosh, she is absolutely amazing!! I honestly don’t know if I can even get words to describe how sweet, amazing, professional, talented, etc. etc. etc. she is! I recently had her do my wedding, and WOW!! Not only did she completely exceed my expectations makeup wise, but she also took time throughout the morning to continuously check on me when I wasn’t feeling the greatest. I knew that Rachel was amazing when she did my bridesmaid makeup for a wedding I was in back in September, but last weekend she made me feel like a goddess and so confident and sexy on the most important day of my life. If you’re looking for someone who listens to what you want, and will give you exactly what you’re looking for, Rachel is your go-to!

If you want the best, you book Color Me Gorgeous.
Y'all - I cannot get over how good my girls and I looked on my wedding day. Over and over, we all talked about how we've never seen our faces look as good as they did as when Rachel and her Color Me Gorgeous team did our makeup. Not only were we over the moon happy with how we looked, we loved working with Rachel. She's so kind, and will go above and beyond to make sure her clients are comfortable.
Beyond the day-of, she is super responsive with all of my questions, big or small. She was willing to talk to me about skincare, and listen when I had different ideas about what I thought my makeup should look like. She is everything and more you'd want in your makeup artist.

Rachel was amazing! From the moment I first contacted her in 2021, all the way up until our wedding in 2022. She was super receptive during my makeup trial and executed perfectly for our wedding day. On the day of she showed up early and we even finished early! Making the day so much more calm and at ease. It was important to me that I still looked like myself on my wedding day and she ensured I felt like the most beautiful version of myself. I couldn't be happier with how my makeup turned out and lasted all day/night! It was even drizzling during our outdoor first look and everything stayed put perfectly. Choosing Rachel was key in ensuring I felt confident and beautiful on the best day of my life!
