About

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.

    Amazing makeup artist

    Amanda was amazing! Not only is she an incredibly talented make up artist, she is so fun and kind. My bridesmaids, mother, and I all felt so beautiful. I am so happy we were able to hire her and would HIGHLY recommend her. She is doing my best friend's wedding next summer and I can't wait to get make up done by her again. We all wanted natural make up but had different levels of comfort wearing makeup which she accommodated perfectly. A must hire!

    If you want to feel beautiful and confident, book with Amanda ASAP

    I was lucky enough to have Amanda do my spray tan a couple days before my wedding, and she did makeup for me, my mom, and my four bridesmaids on the day of my wedding. Amanda is the definition of a pro. I'll start with the spray tan - I was nervous as anything since I'd never had one before, but Amanda made sure I was comfortable and happy the entire time. She told me exactly how to stand, how to turn, and what was about to happen. I followed her directions for tan maintenance to the letter and I'm pleased to report that my tan stayed beautiful through the end of my mini-moon over a week after the initial application. For the wedding makeup - 11/10. Amanda arrived that morning with an amazing amount of makeup in her kit and was able to flawlessly match each differing skintone in my bridal party. Her fun upbeat personality and encouragement were exactly what we needed that morning. Each of us felt so so pretty and even my makeup hating mom really loved her look. Amanda made sure that my makeup stood up to a full day of tears, smiles, laughs, sweating, and constant photos, without feeling painted on or cakey. My makeup was flawless the entire day, and I felt more beautiful and confident than I ever have in my life. I know its cliche, and a woman is more than her makeup, but on your wedding day you want to feel like you're the prettiest woman in the world - Amanda's work helped me feel that way. I'm confident she would make you feel like that too.

    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!
