Cruelty Free Beauty

Hey I'm Rebekah


I'm a Makeup Artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I specialise in weddings but also offer lessons, special event makeup and all other things makeup!

 
I started my career in 1994 after training at The London College of Fashion studying Television, Film & Theatre. I worked in tv and film for over 10 years in London before moving back to Edinburgh in 2003. At this point I moved into editorial and photographic makeup working with many publications, agencies and photographers.

In 2014 I became a dairy free vegetarian (almost vegan but not quite) which led me to start thinking much more carefully about not just food but beauty products too. This led to me to making my kit totally cruelty free and where possible vegan. I took the whole of 2015 to find product that I could replace my old faithfuls with, ones that would perform just as well, if not better. So at the beginning of 2016 my kit was totally cruelty free and I was ready to go.

From 2017 I started adding more  green beauty to my kit which works so well with cruelty free and vegan.You will now find brands like RMS, Ere Perez, Burt Bees, Weleda, Benecose and Lavera amongst the other fabulous cruelty free brands in my kit.
