    Just Perfection

    I have worked with Amy since our engagement photos in 2019 — she has been outstanding every step of the way. Never have I seen a makeup artist do such an awesome job EVERY SINGLE TIME. The moms, girls, and I looked so amazing and natural! Her professionalism and timely work made a HUGE difference on wedding morning when we had lots of girls getting hair/makeup done and a strict timeline. She is truly an artist and made me look and feel like a princess on wedding day. I can’t thank you enough Amy!

    AMAZING. She makes you look like yourself but BETTER!!

    Amy was absolutely UNBELIEVABLE. She is so incredibly talent, but also the sweetest person. She is a master at enhancing what you already have and making you look like YOU but even better for your big day. All of my bridesmaids had their makeup done as well and they all looked amazing. They could not stop raving about their makeup. My biggest pet peeve is when makeup artists cake you up and hide your freckles and Amy did an amazing job of making my girls' skin look incredible while still letting their freckles shine through. I cannot recommend her enough. She just gets it. Thank you so much Amy; you really put me at ease knowing my makeup was going to look flawless for the big day!
