Amanda McCarthy loves makeup. In fact, the only thing she loves more than the perfect eyeliner or pop of color on the cheek is making other women feel absolutely gorgeous. What started as a young obsession with beauty magazines and routine cosmetic experiments on her little sister finally blossomed into a career for Amanda nearly 10 years ago. She’s since worked as a professional makeup artist for top cosmetic lines such as Clinique, Bobbi Brown, and Trish McEvoy, developing her very own application techniques along the way. Looking to bring the beauty to her clients on a more personal level, Amanda launched her own business in 2009. She now provides on-location makeup services for weddings, print and other events, using a consultative, collaborative approach to make her clients not only to look beautiful but feel beautiful as well.

This woman is a make up artist GOD! Amanda is funny and talented. I booked her almost two years out for my wedding as one of the first vendors. She is professional and knows her makeup! She made my bridesmaids and family as well as myself look stunning. She worked well under a time crunch at the end and did not break a sweat! Look no further, her professionalism cannot be topped. Xo

Amanda is such a pleasure to work with! Leading up to the wedding she was always readily available via email. On my wedding day she arrived early and skillfully took care of my bridal party of 7, MOB and MOG plus me, with the help of her incredibly talented assistant Lacey. She is absolutely masterful and made me and my girls feel absolutely gorgeous on the wedding day. She is hilarious and so much fun to have around while getting ready. My make up was applied around 1130 in the morning and looked flawless until I took it off at 2 am, literally required no touch ups for over 12 hours. She provides airbrush and lashes and she has such a good eye for what works for each member of the bridal party. Could not have imagined more perfect bridal makeup and she is just such a lovely and warm person!

I was so fortunate to work with Amanda on my wedding day. She is unbelievable, both as a person and as a makeup artist. When I met her at my trial, I felt an instant connection. I very rarely get my makeup done so I was a little nervous. She was calm, kind and hilarious and made me feel comfortable immediately. I left feeling beautiful and completely confident that my wedding day makeup would look perfect. Sure enough, when she showed up that morning, she made everyone feel at ease. Everyone's makeup was absolutely flawless. She understood the exact look I was going for and made everyone feel beautiful and natural. All of my bridesmaids raved about how it was the best wedding makeup experience they had ever had and I couldn't agree more. I am so thankful that I was able to work with Amanda and would recommend her enthusiastically. She is the best!
Amanda is one of the best makeup artists in the Boston area!! I always love working with her for both professional and personal projects; my go to for beauty needs!!
