JACKIE ROBINSON

Hi! I’m Jackie Robinson, the founder and owner of Rawwbeauty, a team of truly unique and talented makeup and hair artists. I started Rawwbeauty in 2010 with the dream of providing high-quality, one-of-a-kind makeup artistry services to central Alabama’s brides, models, and beautiful women. Before I launched my own company, I worked with MAC Cosmetics, NARS, and Too Faced for almost a decade. In 2013, I compiled everything I’ve learned from my years working in makeup artistry and launched my own line of Rawwbeauty products. I am a licensed Esthetician and provide a multitude of skincare services. Including, Facials, Dermaplane, Chemicals Peels and more. I am also a Certified Lash Extension artist. Check out all the services we offer.

In addition to top-of-the-line cosmetics, I offer airbrush makeup application. I proudly use the KETT COSMETICS  airbrush makeup system. Ask anyone who has ever worn it: The results of airbrush makeup are second to none. It mimics skin’s texture, which provides a truly flawless appearance that can cover up any blemishes, even tattoos. In addition, the water-based makeup product offers up to 15 hours of wear, a great benefit for brides who need to look radiant for hours and hours.

When I first started Rawwbeauty, I did so with an eye toward  helping  brides look spectacular on their big day. Truly, I am still honored each and every time a bride asks me to be a part of her wedding. Knowing a bride will look at her wedding photos for the rest of her life, I love being able to capture her personal style and personality while making her look and feel truly spectacular. There is no greater honor than to have a former client recommend me to one of her friends for their big day.

Brides are certainly some of my most favorite clients, but I can do makeup for any occasion, including photography sessions, job interviews, television appearances, or even just a special night on the town.

I opened the Rawwbeauty Studio in 2014 and welcome all clients to visit the studio, see examples of our work, and talk with us about how we can serve you. If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you. I live in the Birmingham, Alabama, area, but I am available to travel to any site. I can also accommodate wedding parties or groups of any size. With the addition of Rawwbeauty’s talented hair artists, we can provide a truly unique experience for your wedding day or special occasion.

When I’m not busy beautifying faces or meeting with clients about their special day, you’ll likely find me munching on sushi and relaxing with my husband, Patrick, and our precious 15-year-old cat, Dixie.

Browse my portfolio here to see examples of the artistry I’ve provided for previous clients, or contact me jackie@rawwbeauty.com or 205-533-5843 to discuss how I may be able to help you look and feel as beautiful as you truly are.

xoxo,

Jackie

TESS PEOPLES

Hi, I'm Tess Peoples, make-up artist at Rawwbeauty.  I began working in the make-up industry as a Consultant at Clinique and soon thereafter began working for Sephora as a Senior Education Consultant.  While working at Sephora, I was a certified make-up artist and worked to ensure each team became certified by teaching them the basics of becoming a make-up artist.

I also have an Associates Degree in Business Administration from Wallace State Community College. Although I have several years of experience in sales, and am truly a product junkie, my true passion is the artistry.

I love being part of someone's special occasion whether it's a wedding, pageant, or prom.  The moment that I see someone catch a glimpse of their true beauty makes everything I do worthwhile. I can't wait to book an appointment with you for your special day!

CASSANDRA HOGELAND

Hey Y'all! I’m Cassandra Hogeland, a hair stylist for Rawwbeauty. I graduated from the Aveda Institute in Birmingham several years ago. While a student there, I took part in a wide variety of events, including multiple fashion shows and exhibits. Since graduation, I’ve been fortunate enough to begin working as a hairstylist in the Birmingham and central Alabama area.

I like to think of myself as a very creative and open hairstylist. I have training and excel in everything from cutting and coloring to special occasion styling. Working with brides and their bridal party is one of the greatest joys I experience in this job. The wedding day is a day brides dream about their entire lives. I am always honored when a bride chooses me for their special day. When I’m not busy doing hair, you can find me exercising, running, riding four-wheelers, or munching on chips and salsa at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I look forward to being a part of your day.
