Mixing rock and roll with world-class sophistication, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin’s vision is impressive and diverse. Her unique perspective has catapulted her to the forefront of the industry as one of the most requested artists of our time.
Working as a CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist since 2006, Rachel’s keen eye caught the attention of many actresses including Emma Stone, January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Diane Lane, Jodie Foster and Kat Dennings, all of whom quickly became dedicated clientele. Her work has been featured in top publications such as Vogue, V and ELLE, with photographers like Cedric Buchet, Carter Smith and Ben Hassett calling on her unparalleled talent for their biggest shoots.
Raised in the San Francisco area, Rachel’s life was filled with artists, musicians and cultural movements. Inspired by these eclectic visual influences as well as by fashion magazine covers and MTV, Rachel became fascinated with faces and spent much of her time drawing portraits. She eventually took courses at the acclaimed San Francisco Memorial Opera House, where she realized makeup was her passion.
Moving to New York City to pursue her dream, Rachel began working with some of the industry’s best: James Kaliardos, Mark Carrasquillo, and Linda Cantello. She gained a dedicated following in editorial, print advertising and the music industry, which then led her to Los Angeles, where her expressive and visionary work has flourished ever since.
