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!Sent on 11/04/2019

Amy is an angel!!!
It is no wonder why Amy is ALWAYS booked and comes so highly recommended! I am so glad that we were able to hire Amy to be a part of our September wedding at Wrightsville Manor! She did an INCREDIBLE job with my makeup. It was even better than I imagined, I loved the way it looked in photos, and it lasted me ALL day long (even through many many happy tears). Amy also made all of my bridesmaids look so stunning and they were so happy with her work. She is also a total sweetheart, and made us all feel so relaxed in the bridal sweet all day long. As a wedding photographer myself, I cannot wait to photograph more brides with Amy as the makeup artist! Her work is completely unmatched and I will continue to recommend her to my brides! THANK YOU AMY!Sent on 09/30/2019
