"Rachel is an extremely talented makeup artist. She did the makeup for the bridesmaids at my wedding, and they looked gorgeous. She was very personable and talked to my bridesmaids about exactly what kind of look they were going for, and adapted accordingly. She takes her time and doesn't rush, and she was very prompt to arrive to start her services. By the time she was done applying the makeup everyone looked so beautiful! She really has a lot of talent, a great personality, and a true craft of her own. I would recommend Rachel to anyone who is looking for a one of a kind, seamless make up application. You will be very happy with the results!"

"Rachel is a talented makeup artist who listens to what her clients want and highlights their natural beauty. She did the makeup for ten different women on my wedding day, and every one of them (including myself) was so impressed with beautiful, natural look that she was able to achieve. I have gone to other makeup artists before, but none of them were as skilled as Rachel, nor did they use the same high-quality products that Rachel did. If you are looking for a skilled makeup artist who knows how to bring out your natural beauty, Rachel is simply the best."

"Rachel is truly an amazing make-up artist. She has been doing my make-up for years and it was no question that she would do my make-up for my wedding. Since I am not a person who does my make-up on a regular basis, I had no exact look that I was going for. I did tell her that I wanted to look natural yet chic and to throw in some color to match the bridesmaids dresses and she nailed it! I would recommend Rachel for any event where you want to look your best!"

Rachel did my make-up April 4th, 2014 for my beach wedding. My make-up highlighted my natural features and took my husband's breath away. The whole night he kept saying, "You look so beautiful!" I was so happy with Rachel's services and couldn't have wished for a better artist! Rachel is absolutely amazing!!

My wedding was 3/23/2013 and it was the best day of my life. I hired Rachel Pagan to do my makeup along with my two maids of honor, my mother and my mother in law. Pleasing three woman on one of the most important a days of their life is not easy to do. Everyone is nervous, picky and wants to look their best. Rachel arrived at the hotel on time and with an energy that made everyone relax. Everyone's makeup was stunning and done without flaw. We all loved her and we're all impressed by her professionalism and talent. She is one of the best makeup artists I have ever met.

Rachel did my makeup for my wedding. She did an amazing trial and made me feel completely confident for the big day. But of course I was a bundle of crazy nerves when the time came! Which leads me to what is so special about Rachel. Not only was her work amazing, she was a calming force in the bridal room. She is a true listener, a beautiful spirit, and one hell of a makeup artist. I looked like myself. Not "made up" but I also looked damn good! I recommend her to anyone that will listen. She also did my sister in law's makeup and she was thrilled with it. She stuck around for touchups, and made my little nieces day by putting a little gloss on her lips. I know I'm rambling. I was just so happy with her. She really became a part of the family for the day. Thanks Rachel for making us all look and feel so great!

"Rachel is a highly professional, talented make-up artist with serene and positive energy. I normally do not wear a lot of makeup and prefer a natural look. Rachel always listens and creates my look(s) exactly how I/my photo shoot photographer desire. While we all had many ideas as to what my make-up should look like, Rachel was able to creatively and flawlessly put together several looks that made the actual photos an absolute success. I was able to select and create several prints as Rachel was able to give me a distinctive (yet natural) look for each shot. Thank you Rachel for several great make-up sessions!!!"
