Her work is strongly influenced by her background in Art & Design. Makeup satisfies her love and passion for working with coloured mediums whilst the tactile nature of hair expresses her passion for sculpture.
Makeup + Hair has always been a part of Rachael's life. As a little girl she has fond memories of watching her mum's makeup + hair routine. She even allowed her older sister to undercut her hair in her quest to look like Cyndi Lauper! And that mesmerising moment was when she saw herself with black eyeliner in the inner rims of her eyes for the first times signified the beginning of her lifelong passion with the transforming qualities of makeup + hair.
As a local to the Mornington Peninsula, Rachael is available for Freelance Makeup + Hair, Bridal Freelance Makeup + Hair and one-on-one Makeup Lessons.
