After completing school, and years of certifications and makeup artist experience, Rochelle became frustrated with the heavy, mask like makeup prevalent in the market and the seemingly endless trips to the mirror to reapply as it disappeared throughout the day. Her active lifestyle, as well as that of her clients, called for longer lasting products that could stand up to heat and humidity, even in Texas. Rochelle had struggled with oily skin, acne, severe skin allergies and the embarrassment that went with it for most of her younger life, so she also knew the importance of a more natural approach to cosmetics.
This inspired her to create a easy to use, strong but gentle makeup line designed for real life and the active women who live it. In 2005 Rae Cosmetics was born. The perspiration resistant, lighter than air mineral formulas are hypoallergenic, oil free, fragrance free and non-comedogenic. They won’t irritate skin or clog pores, allowing skin to breathe freely as if wearing nothing at all, gentle enough for use following medical cosmetic procedures. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, water resistant, chemical free sunscreen and pigment, make it strong enough to stay on when you sweat, even at the gym or in Texas.
Rae Cosmetics has quickly become a favorite amongst hard working, fun loving, active and athletic women looking for beauty as well as performance from their cosmetics.
Businesswoman, Mother, athlete or all of the above...we all sweat.
