But let’s get to know Rachel first!
What’s in your handbag right now?
I actually just filmed a “What’s in my purse” video! I never leave home without my keys, wallet, a good lip balm, phone and of course a few books and toys for my daughter Julia!
Time you’ve felt most beautiful?
My wedding day.
Best advice you’ve ever been given and the person who gave it to you?
To never stop learning. My parents always encouraged me to ask lots of questions, beyond just what’s taught in school. Find what you love and learn all that you can about it.
Most embarrassing moment?
Just one?! J A more recent one was when I moved into our new home and I was filming a makeup tutorial on myself when one of my neighbours came over because they thought I was filming them! We laugh about it now, but I was so embarrassed at the time!
Favourite clothing item right now?
My giant blanket scarf from Aerie. It’s so multipurpose: a scarf, peekaboo game for Julia, picnic blanket, towel and knapsack for toys all in one!
What do you do to stay healthy?
I don’t set unachievable expectations for myself—I choose healthy options during the day because it makes me feel good, but I also bake homemade cookies every day because they make me happy.
How did you get involved with YouTube?
I was working in marketing just outside of Toronto and was searching a celebrity makeup look on Google to re-create for a date night. I found a YouTube video showing a step by step tutorial and I was hooked on the growing beauty community ever since.
