I could not have picked a better makeup artist
On your wedding day (and throughout life of course) you want to surround yourself with amazing people that you can trust and make it fun and I couldn't have been happier having Rachel O'Dell as part of our day. Rachel was the makeup artist at a friends wedding 7 years earlier when I was a bridesmaid and did such a fantastic job I didn't think twice about who to call.
I don't often wear make-up and having not long gone through chemo I was struggling to come to terms with a new shorter hairstyle. Rachel really listened, understood and made great suggestions and I can say she gave me such confidence for my hen do and my wedding day. When we first met for a coffee and a really easy-going planning session I knew instantly I had made the right choice and a friend for life.
Rachel did a pre session with me, she was really flexible fitting it around my hen do and the mayhem of a house filled with giddy hens and has such a calm nature I had such confidence that everything that followed would be amazing. Nearly 4 years later my hen do picture is still my twitter profile picture, what does that tell you?
You'll be in great hands with Rachel and as soon as I can I am booking back in for a make-up lesson and then perhaps I can update that twitter profile picture!
Thank you Rachel you're an absolute star.Sent on 20/01/2021

For many brides getting your makeup done is a huge part of your wedding day. My now sister-in-law’s makeup looked stunning on her wedding day and so I asked her for her makeup artists details. That’s when I met Rachel.
From start to finish she has been incredible. Being a covid bride my wedding plans changed so many times and Rachel was there every step of the way. As you can imagine I became quite stressed that I might have to do my own makeup for my wedding day - something that I desperately didn’t want to do. Rachel offered so many different options and even offered to do an on the day wedding makeup tutorial for me. Luckily she was able to come on the day and do both mine and my mum’s makeup for our short ceremony. I knew exactly which look I was trying to achieve and Rachel understood this. She did our makeup beautifully - it was flawless - and I certainly felt extremely confident for the day.
Rachel is so easy to get on with and she calmed my nerves while creating the perfect look for my day taking all aspects into consideration. She even found the perfect shade of lipstick that complemented my wedding flowers and my daughters dress.
Overall I can not recommend Rachel enough - she is amazing. We are having a big wedding in a few years time and I can’t wait for Rachel to do mine, my mums and all my bridesmaids makeup. Not only is Rachel and incredible makeup artist, she’s an incredibly person too. Thank you so so much!Sent on 19/01/2021

After a year of no weddings and so many disappointed couples it was a joy to end the year doing your makeup , it felt like the perfect way to enter into a new year , full of hope and joy . I am really looking forward to doing it all over again very soon .

Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her communication from the beginning was brilliant and she was so flexible with what I needed. She organised an assistant for my bridesmaids with no problems at all and came to my house to do make up trials for me, my mum and my mother in law. On the day of the wedding she was so lovely and calm and immediately put me at ease. We used my trial as a guideline and changed a few things for my actual make up on the day and I absolutely loved it, it came out on great on photos and lasted all day and night. Would highly recommend Rachel!!Sent on 13/01/2021
