Hey there! Thanks so much for stopping by and wanting to learn a little more about me!! I’m Rachelle Spier, a full time makeup artist & hair stylist located in Grass Valley, CA. I specialize in makeup and hair for photography and special events. A majority of my work is with brides or working along side local photographers on photoshoots. I’m a licensed cosmetologist and have been working in the industry for over 9 years. I have 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 allow 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 sales just wasn’t where I belonged as an artist.

In 2014 I decided to take the steps to begin my freelance career, start my own business and be my own boss! Since then I have worked with many very talented photographers and models, traveled out of state for destination weddings and I’ve even 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). As a hobby I also create beauty related videos on my Youtube channel (www.youtube.com/rachellespier) where I have exceeded 1.5 million total views!  Also, 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, watching youtube and following a Ketogenic Lifestyle!
