I've been a client of Raney's for the last year and can NOT imagine ever returning to the lash curling, mascara applying days of old! There are many 'lengths' and 'curl levels' to choose from, when selecting lash extensions, and it can be very overwhelming! Raney makes the perfect recommendation based on your goals, the shape of your eyes, and the condition of your lashes. The end result: stunning. I like my lashes looking full and since I shed them more than average, I opt to refill them every 2 weeks. Raney will help you uncover the optimum refill rate based on your preferences and growth rate. I always look forward to seeing Raney, not only because I feel beautiful leaving but also because I enjoy engaging in genuine conversation during my hour refill appointments. The location, inside of WAX Atlanta, is very relaxing, clean and has a loft-like feel. I'm looking forward to returning next week!

I used Raney's services for my wedding and let me just say that she did an amazing job, she explained everything and answered all my questions and helped me stay worry free for the big day. I had my make up airbrushed on and let me suggest this to all brides getting married. My wedding was in the late evening in September and to my surprise my makeup looked as flawless as it first did when it was applied. My hair was gorgeous thanks to Raney- I showed her a picture of what I was looking for and it came out better than I could have imagined. Raney was very prompt and so very sweet. I will always use her for services and recommend her for makeup and hair. Thank you Raney- Lacey

I found Raney on Kudzu last week as I needed a make-up artist for a photo shoot. Raney worked me in her schedule at the last minute and I'm so thankful she did. My makeup looked absolutley BEAUTIFUL! Even the photographer commented on my makeup and of course, I passed along Raney's card. I must say I was so sad to wash my face that evening. I wish I had Raney to do my makeup every day! My husband even suggested I take a makeup lesson from Raney. She made me feel beautiful and look natural. I would recommend Raney to anyone - whether for a photoshoot, a wedding, or a special day. A perfect 10!

Raney O'Keefe is the best of the best in Atlanta. She is a true expert in the field of makeup artistry. Raney's skill level, keen eye for detail and degree of perfection is extraordinary. Raney made me (and my mother and mother in law) look and feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. She spends as much time as necessary, ecsp during the trial to ensure you are 100% happy with your look. Her fun loving genuine personality makes the experience even more enjoyable. Raney is a necessity for any event that you want to look simply amazing! Atlanta is fortunate to have such a gifted and versatile makeup artist.

Raney was phenomenal to work with! I visited her twice for eyelash extensions and they were so fresh and fabulous. I would suggest all brides apply eyelashes-especially for their honeymoon! I also visited Raney three times for hair and makeup (once for trial, twice for bridal portrait sitting, thrice for the real deal!) Every time, she did a flawless job. My hair was so romantic and she taught me how to wear a birdcage veil. My makeup was beautiful. I got so many compliments and I felt amazing with the way I looked on my big day.

Meticulous is the best word for Raney's eyelash extension application. And all you have to do is lay there and enjoy her sparkling conversation. The process is simple - the gluing of individual synthetic lashes with medical grade adhesive. However there could be major room for error. You can trust Raney to do this correctly. She's also X-Treme certified which means she's had professional training. Now, should you do it? The lashes are gorgeous. I've gone in for one placement and one fill-in. I wish they lasted a bit longer (you'll cry when you shed one), but that's not Raney's fault, it's the natural process that occurs. I've looked into Latisse, but X-Treme seems safer (users of Latisse claim redness of the eyes, itching, and the potential for iris discoloration - too much of a gamble for me). Eyelash extension placement takes time, but it makes eye make-up extraneous. It's also expensive, but it made me feel really confident and, dare I say, pretty? It's worth the splurge. And you will love Raney.

"Hello Fabulous" is what everyone was saying after Raney put on my fantabulous lashes! I never thought lashes would make such a dramatic difference. I tried lash extensions to see for myself and WOW! I absolutely love waking up, not putting on makeup and turning heads as I blink. She suggested purple highlights and I LOVE them! My eyes pop rock and roll. Raney is a brilliant artist with a detailed, caring touch and is such a pleasure to be around.

Wow! Raney has changed my life. Gone are the days of piling on more and more mascara to extend the length of my lashes! I no longer have lashes that resemble hairy tarantula legs! No more clumpy mascara to clean up! (We all know the tube of mascara only makes our lashes look good for two weeks. Then it gets clumpy and needs to be replaced!) I don't have smudges under my eyes during the day. And I don't have to scrub and rub my eyes to death to get all the mascara off or use eye makeup remover that irritates my eyes. If you are dealing with one or several of these issues, please go see Raney. You don't have to suffer anymore. I don't even have to curl my lashes (and break them off) anymore. These lash extensions are GREAT! They're offered in several lengths, they curl on their own, and you don't need mascara anymore. Raney is extremely professional, very kind, gentle on your eyes (easy on the eyes too), and sweet to boot. Her studio is CLEAN, fun and fresh! It's a great escape. You definitely feel pampered while you're there. I've received dozens of compliments on my eyes from men and women! I tell them all to go see Raney O'Keefe.

I decided to get semi-permanent lash extensions for a big event and Raney did an absolutely fabulous job. Not only did I look amazing for my big day, it is weeks later and I am still enjoying them. People stop me all the time to say what beautiful eyes I have yet I am sure they don't know my little secret enhancement. Thanks, Raney!!

Raney has been doing my extreme lash extensions and they are the absolute BEST!!! No mascara and no effort. You just wake up looking like you spent 20 minutes on your makeup and that Rocks!! Raney was very precise in her application and I reccomend her to everyone. Her makeup application is amazing also, if you should ever need her. I really think she is the BEST!!

Raney did my makeup, as well as my mom's, for my wedding in March 2008. From the inital contact to the final results everything was more then I could ask for. She even found a Bobby Brown lip color that I could never get my hands on b/c they were always sold out!

Raney is an extremely talented artist and beauty consultant. I find her to be personable and professional in the way she presents herself as an artist. Her unique talent comes across in her choice of color, application, and the overall mood she captures with her clients. Raney was very generous with her time on and leading up to my wedding day. She did such outstanding work that I would recommend her to anyone!
