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.

Stop looking now, and book Amanda!
Simply amazing! I could not imagine working with anyone else on my wedding day. She is a pro, funny, honest, and flexible, not to mention always on-time and organized!
Amanda helped me decide on my look to match my wedding vision during the trial. Notably, she helped me navigate through all of the options that would compliment my complexion and make me feel beautiful.
She did my make up for my NYE wedding weekend, including the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. I had a large wedding party and a long day ahead of us, so she was early, brought high energy, and organized to make the day of glam, fun and on schedule. Our makeup was flawless and lasted all day and night!
If you are looking for someone who will deliver and make you look amazing, look no further! I am so thankful to have worked with Amanda on my wedding day. She truly is the best and someone I still stay in touch with today!Sent on 05/14/2020

I am so happy that I went with Amanda and her team. I had my trial with her in May, and I got married in December 2019. Amanda even helped transform my brows! I went to her once a month between the trial and my wedding. She became one of my friends over the last 6 months.
During the day of the wedding, Amanda was professional, kind and warming. She and her team made every girl look and feel beautiful. Amanda knew exactly what to say when she could tell I was getting overwhelmed during the morning. I was going for a winter, vintage, glam look for our wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel. She definitely delivered.
When I was going through the process of hiring my vendors and looking at all the reviews, I was really turned off by the fact that every vendor had a perfect rating. I thought there is no way every vendor can have a 5-star review. I wanted the truth! But the truth is, Amanda is a complete rock star and deserves every 5-star rating she receives.
I cannot thank Amanda enough for being a part of my day. I feel so lucky that I was able to work with such a professional, kind and overall great person on the day of my wedding.Sent on 01/06/2020

highly recommend, professional, talented
I absolutely love Amanda! From the moment we met at the trial, to the day of, she was wonderful to work with. She is so much fun and truly wants you to look your best, while feeling your best, and still feeling like yourself on the big day. She was super flexible and went with me when I changed my look from my trial to the wedding day. She was honest and wanted my look to match the venue, which I super appreciated. She was extremely professional by coming in and setting up (an incredible set up with mirror, large light, all of her makeup laid out, large comfortable chairs) without us even knowing she was there! She made me laugh the entire time as well as making me feel so beautiful inside and out. I heard every single one of my bridesmaids compliment how professional Amanda and her associate were. They asked questions that all of my bridesmaids super appreciated and stated they have never been asked by a makeup artist before - such as allergies, skin sensitivities, and their comfort with makeup. Amanda was a very welcome addition to our morning and felt like one of us, not just a vendor. I would 100% hire her again and have already recommended her to future brides.Sent on 10/17/2019
