I’m Rachel Neate, a Wiltshire based Makeup and Hair Artist offering a bespoke makeup and hair service for weddings, special occasions and proms. My passion is to help women be the best version of themselves. Whether you are a bride to be, Mother of the Bride, going to a special occasion I can help you be a naturally glamorous version of yourself yet still be uniquely you.
I am so passionate about what I do, I love it and count it a privilege to be able work my passion. My favourite part of the job, is when my bride to be, is transformed into a bride. She looks the best version of herself that she can be. She feels beautiful and is confident to walk down the aisle with all eyes on her. I want my brides to be the most naturally glamorous version of themselves, to feel amazing yet still be recognised by her groom when she gets to the end of the aisle!
Because I have been in the wedding industry for 15 years I can bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to help the wedding day morning run smoothly. I love to make Mums of the bride look and feel fabulous and the bridesmaids look incredible complimenting the bride. I have a wedding morning emergency kit with me, a crochet hook for doing up buttons, mini sewing kit, scissors and a few other essentials that may be needed during the morning. My skills run to doing up corsets and pinning on corsages whatever is helpful I can do if needed. I have seen it all!!
Other services I provide are special occasion and prom hair and makeup styling. I love providing this as I can do different styles to match the clients outfits and the type of event they are attending. I can do high glamor or natural styles whatever client is dreaming of. My aim is to make them feel beautiful, special and confident.
Last but not least I run one to one makeup tutorials and do Makeup Bag Makeovers. I really enjoy teaching other women and teenagers how to correctly apply makeup. To show them what colours make their eyes pop, how to apply foundation flawlessly without looking caked on, to use the correct products for their skin, skin tone and colouring. Enabling women, to look and feel a better version of themselves on a daily basis not just on those special occasions. Makeup can help you feel amazing if applied in the right way. Clients come to me for all sorts of reasons, birthday treat, new job, special event, brides to be or just to be more confident in applying makeup, each tutorial is tailored to their specific needs.

“We were all so happy with the make up you did for us on the day, all the bridesmaids and my Mum commented on how professional you were and they all felt really special on the day thanks to you. I would also like to thank you for making me feel great and keeping us all very calm, you were a star!”Sent on 03/02/2016
“My wedding was at 8.30am so I did wonder initially whether I would be able to get anyone to do my make-up so early! Rachel arrived well on time and did a wonderful job. At the trial she listened to what I wanted and adapted things to suit my wishes together with advising me of what would be nice too. The end result on the day was more than I could have wished for. My skin is not perfect but on the day my blemishes and reddness were so well hidden everyone remarked how lovely it looked. The make up felt very natural and comfortable and stayed put all day right through to the night. I would recommend Rachel, not only for her ability to apply make up, but also for her professionalism and friendly approach. Thanks Rachel!”Sent on 03/02/2016
“I wanted to write and thank you and Caroline for doing such a fantastic job on all of our make up for the wedding, you both worked wonders! It was so great that none of us girls had to worry about doing our own make up and could just enter the oasis of calm that you created upstairs and be transformed. We were all really pleased with the results on the day and in the photos. So thank you both very much for your help and expertise.”Sent on 03/02/2016
