How It All Started

Hey Beauties and thanks for checking out my website. I am honoured you are visiting my page. My name is Rachel! 


I started exploring makeup in grade 7 which led to my dark eyeliner & bright white, sparkly, Lise Watier glitter days in high school. The more I got into make up the more my creative side surfaced and decided to make it my career by applying for the Global Makeup program at Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver. I learned everything from Prosthetics, Airbrushing, Hair Styling, Wedding Makeup, Special Effects, Tv and Film as well Hygiene & Sanitation. 

After realizing Vancouver was not for me, I moved back to my hometown, Nanaimo, where I worked as a Cosmetician and Beauty Advisor for 3 years. I was itching to learn more, so I took the plunge and became a full time freelance makeup artist while also taking several Esthetics courses in 2020. In February 2020 Enhance Beauty was born and I finally reached my goal of becoming a business owner!! My studio is located in South Nanaimo and am also able to work on location as needed.

I’m a new makeup artist from the small town of Kitimat, BC. I’ve always had a passion for makeup since I was a little girl, and a love for creating looks that enhance natural beauty and bring out a client’s best features.

Growing up in a small town, I did not have access to many resources. However, i was determined to pursue my dreams and spent countless hours watching makeup tutorials and practicing on myself and friends. I got started at my local Shoppers Drug mart cosmetic counter when I was 16 and stayed for some years, I then graduated high school and decided to go to Blanche Macdonald to further my knowledge.

After completing the makeup artistry program at Blanche Macdonald Centre, in Vancouver I moved to Nanaimo to begin my career freelancing, then met lovely Rachel! 

I often volunteer my services and am  passionate about empowering other women to feel confident and beautiful.
