Hey, thanks so much for stopping by and wanting to learn a little more about me!! I’m Rachelle Spier, a full time makeup artist located in Grass Valley, CA. I specialize in makeup and hair styling for photography and special events. A majority of my work is with brides, photoshoots and high school seniors who are getting their portraits taken. I’m a licensed cosmetologist and have been working in the industry for over 8 years. I have an extensive education in hair styling as well as skincare and makeup application.
As a young adult I viewed makeup as more of an art when others considered it a task. I would practice on family and friends as often as they would let me. I felt such a satisfaction when helping others feel confident and showing them how beautiful they truly are. I know beauty is so much more then skin deep so I try to match my clients inner beauty to harmonize with their physical attributes.
In the start of my career I worked in several of the top makeup retailers (Sephora, ULTA & Cosmoprof). I learned in depth about a large verity of brands and cosmetic/hair products. I loved experimenting with different skin colors, face shapes and eye colors to see how it would change the way a product would preform. After working in retail I realized my passion was not to sell makeup but in the art of applying it. Retail just wasn’t where I belonged as an artist.
In 2014 I decided to take the steps to begin my freelance career and start my own business! Since then I have worked with tons of talented photographers/models, traveled out of state for weddings and had my work published in several magazines! I’m so grateful for where my career has taken me and I’m always excited to see what I can accomplish next.
When I’m not working with makeup you can probably find me creating videos. My ‘other job’ is filming weddings with my husband for our company Yuba Gold Films (www.yubagoldfilms.com). In 2017 I started yet another business venture, an online boutique called Honey Crush Beauty (www.honeycrushbeauty.com). On my website I sell my favorite hair accessories, jewelry, skin care and beauty tools.
In my off time I enjoy thrift shopping, spoiling my dogs, and eating the Ketogenic Lifestyle. I believe in the Law of Attraction, love crystals, reading self help books and journaling! On my travel bucket list I’d love to visit Greece, Bali and Paris.
