COVID-19 Update
At this moment I am not taking any new bookings including bookings for 2021 and beyond. As a makeup artist it is very unclear when we will be able to work again and how we will be working. Due to the nature of our work it is impossible to social distance. Once it is clear from the First Minister we can start to go back to work and once a safe practice is put in place I will open my bookings up. I understand this may be disappointing news but I think it is imperative that as suppliers we keep our clients and ourselves safe and we do not promise something we may not be able to deliver.

Fantastic from start to finish.
Our day was magical... We had an exceptional team working together to make the day perfect. My morning began by being pampered by Rebekah McVittie, her make up is natural and long lasting, I have had the pleasure of her doing my make up 3 times before for weddings as a bridesmaid and I knew I wanted her for my wedding day. She is kind and knows how to relax a bride before her big day. I would highly reccomend her to any bride she is professional, works well with any wedding team and always ensures everyone looks their best.

Rebekah is an Absolute Makeup Genius
Rebekah is an absolute makeup genius! I absolutely loved my makeup for my wedding day, as did my bridesmaid and mum. It looked as beautiful when it was finished as it did at the end of the night! Rebekah does beautiful natural makeup so you really look like you, just the best possible version. Also love that she uses environmentally friendly products that don't feel like they have been caked onto your face!

Rebekah is the Best!
Rebekah is the best! She listened to what I wanted, but offered great advice throughout the wedding planning process. She was an absolute joy to work and spend time with, is understanding and drama-free. Rebekah did my makeup for both our engagement photos and wedding and I would highly recommend her services. Thanks so much, Rebekah!! ���

I Can Thoroughly Recommend Rebekah, She is Amazing
I can thoroughly recommend Rebekah, she is amazing! I had a small casual wedding on Arthur's Seat and she did my make up in her lovely studio in a funky building in Leith. She understood and gave me exactly what I wanted and was also so lovely and really helped calm my nerves. Thank you so so much xx

Looking Forward to Using Rebekah Again
I got married last month, Rebekah did the make up for me and my two bridesmaids. After the make up trial I had complete confidence in her to provide the make up I wanted. Her professionalism exceeded my expectations. On the morning of the wedding her experience and calmness made the morning peaceful, relaxing and fun. The make up lasted through out the wedding day and evening. Looking forward to using Rebekah again whenever I need my make up professionally done.

If You Are Looking for Someone Fun, Calm ...
I can't recommend Rebekah enough. If you are looking for someone fun, calming and amazingly talented to do your make up, please consider Rebekah. Rebekah was recommended to me by a friend, and we met for a long chat and trial session which really put me at ease. On the day of my wedding, Rebekah was so patient and lovely with me and my bridesmaids and was the perfect person to have there with us on the morning of the wedding. Thank you so much Rebekah, you are fab!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

There are 3!!! The one I got locked in the bridal cottage and had to climb out over the barn door in all my regalia. The one I fell down the stairs at Dalhousie castle and gave myself a black eye and concussion, or the one where I didn't realise I had food poisoning and was very ill between clients!!!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, clean, natural, calm, considered

What about your business are you most proud of?

My customer service and my ethical stance on the products I use.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Do your research. Not only online but ask for recommendations. Ask loads of questions. It always amazes me how few questions brides ask me.

What do you love most about your job?

That I am part of the wedding morning with the bride and her bridal party. It is a morning when the bride is with her closest and most loved friends and families and I am welcomed into that. I become part of it for that morning. It is a special special thing and I am thankful for it at every wedding I do. It is an utter privilege.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

If you don't have a skincare routine get one! Makeup sits so much better on well looked after skin and can quite often mean you need to use less makeup. Also you will hopefully keep it up after the wedding.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Its all about being calm yourself, understanding what a wedding day entails and how emotions can grow. If you are calm then all around you hopefully stay calm too.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Brides look beautiful and radiant by default on their wedding day so they just need to enjoy the day and not worry about anything.
