Nelli Huié,Freelance Photographer and Videographer
Rebecca is always my number one go-to makeup artist for commercial, fashion, or fine art work. Her professional yet relaxed demeanor is a wonderful way to help my clients feel comfortable and at ease before they step in front of my camera. I have never not been amazed by Rebecca's ability to create exactly what I pictured in my head. Having said that, her true gift lies in her creative theatrical work. Rebecca's work truly puts the emphasis on "artist" rather than "makeup".

I knew from our very first shoot together that Rebecca is amazingly gifted, and a multi-talent to boot… I love that she brings more than just the make up to shoots we work on together - she really embraces the full concept and tries to make sure its polished from every angle.
I cannot recommend Rebecca enough. I am the first to confess that I am a perfectionist, and quite ‘fussy’ when it comes to make up. Over the years as a fashion designer I have worked with a lot of MUAs but none have come close to the high standard that Rebecca delivers. She is excellent at listening to what her clients are asking for, and delivers what they want, but better. She knows what works for each face and has great ideas that she executes perfectly. She’s professional, friendly and makes anyone sitting in her chair feel comfortable.
After having Rebecca do my makeup for several events, when it was time to find a MUA for my wedding day, I didn’t need to look very far. On top of my fussiness, I became a bride, but Rebecca took all my requests in her stride and was so patient with me. The work she did on my wedding day (for myself, bridesmaids, mum and mother and sister-in law) was absolutely amazing. She worked well to our tight deadline and made us all feel and look our best. I cannot thank her enough for her wonderful work ethic and look forward to commissioning her in future and wish her all the best in her career.
