Rachel is a freelance make-up artist based in Edinburgh specialising in theatrical, catwalk and photographic makeup.
About MeI graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2010 with a BA in Social History, but decided to return to college to pursue my dream of becoming a make up artist. I enrolled at Clydebank College where I received the best training available and graduated with a Grade 'A' in HND Make Up Artistry in 2012.
My course has given me knowledge in basic, bridal and fashion make up techniques as well as hair styling, special effects, theatrical, character and specialist ageing make up, period hair and make up, prosthetics and application of postiche. I also have experience in airbrushing, bodypainting and advanced make up techniques.
My passion lies in theatrical make up, but I also enjoy catwalk and photographic make up. I love doing vintage/historical looks as well as alternative fashion and special effects and prosthetic make up. I also enjoy bridal makeup, especially for quirky and non-traditional weddings.
I use professional-quality make up in all my work to ensure a flawless finish. My kit consists of brands such as Ben Nye, MAC, Graftobian, Temptu Airbrush, Makeup Forever and Illamasqua. I have specialist HD make up for film and television work too.
