'I just wanted to drop you a line to say huge thank you for my make up, I absolutey loved it on the day but looking at the photos now, I can see that it was a look of tenderness and innocence, it was fresh and effortless! Thank you for being your usual bubbly self and making me feel at ease with so many camera snaps inches away from my face. Thank you also for looking after my mum with last minute brush ups.'
'I wanted to write and say thank you properly for the great job you did on my wedding day. I absolutely loved getting dressed up and having nice make up was something I really wanted to treat myself to, and you did a brilliant job so thank you for your patience and professionalism!'
'Rachel clearly loves her work and is a true perfectionist. Her care, attention to detail and enthusiasm made me feel very special and I really don’t think anyone could have done a better job. The makeup was exactly what I wanted, I had a flawless finish that lasted all day, in fact it lasted until I finished partying at 5am! After I met Rachel and had the trial I felt complete confidence in her skill and attentiveness. She’s very happy and bubbly so she’s the perfect person to have around you on the day – actually she was crucial in keeping me calm as well. In short I only have good things to say and would highly recommend Rachel to anyone.'
'Rachel is an amazing make up artist. She was very professional when doing both the trial and make up on the day, whilst also making us feel very comfortable. My make up was perfect and colours all matched my dress and the theme. I would recommend Rachel to anyone looking for their make up for any special day.'
'I just want to say thank you so much for my fantastic wedding make-up. I felt truly special on the day and I loved the way all the colours matched my flowers etc., and still suited me! I've just had my photographs back and I'm so pleased with them - thank you so much. I'm so glad I chose you, so please feel free to put this on your website etc.'
'As someone who had never really used make up I decided it was about time, so got Rachel to give me a couple of lessons. She showed me all the techniques for applying correctly, and we came up with a set of colours that worked perfectly for my skin tones. Now, with my added confidence and knowledge, I wonder why I didn't do it years ago!
Throughout the lessons Rachel was a consumate professional, she made me feel completely at ease, and not in the least like an idiot for not knowing what I was doing! All the products she recommended were tailored to my budget, so I now don't feel pressured to buy only 'premium' brands which I always did previously.
And now, thanks to Rachel, I never leave the house without at least a quick slick of mascara!! And feel so much better for it too!' Lucy, Bath
'I was really pleased with the quality of the HD make-up I received for Ticking 2012. The contouring of my features was very professional and it created a great new look for the camera. Rachel matched the products really well to my skin type and they were great for my sensitive skin."
'Rachel was fantastic and went out of her way to find the colours that worked for me and showing techniques that I needed to apply my wedding make-up. The make-up lesson was lots of fun!'
'Rachel organised a great make up evening for our local charity who work with young people in the Bath area. Her experience as a qualified teacher clearly showed and it was great that she is used to working with children from a variety of challenging backgrounds. The young people really enjoyed themselves and learned a lot about applying make up and the techniques and colours that would suit them. This in term will help increase their self confidence and self esteem and I would have no hesitation in working with her again.'
'Really useful range of techniques - practical for day and evening and great advice on products (where to invest and where cheap is fine). Exactly the confidence I wanted! Thank you!'
'It's always a delight to work on films with Rachel (Alexander), who brings a wealth of experience to the whole process of applying make up to actors, while constantly keeping them at their ease. The difference between flashback sequences and real-time sequences required full make up on one scene to be followed with a hugely contrasting sickly pale complexion on the next scene. Rachel achieved the exact look that was required for our leading lady, Karina Sugden, at all times, and always explained to the actors what she was doing and why. I look forward to the next film we do together.'
'Just a quick note to say thank you for doing my amazing make-up on my wedding day. it stayed on all day and made me feel so confident. I also can't thank you enough for helping with my dress. I'm not sure what we'd have done if you hadn't been here! I truly appreciate everything you did that morning.'
