    Amy is simply a makeup genius! She was immediately recommended to me by my wedding photographer and described as the best in town. She made me feel beautiful and confident on my big day due to her professionalism, skill, and personality. She is a true artist- my face definitely felt like her blank canvas and it was so fun to let her creativity flow! I trusted her every move and the results were amazing. My friends and family were thrilled with her services and everyone looked absolutely stunning. Her natural, eye-catching style is perfect for any bride (as well as bridesmaid, maid of honor, mother of bride, mother of groom, and the list goes on!). She easily deserves 5 stars. Thank you, Amy!

    She did an excellent job. My makeup and eyelashes lasted all night. I have extremely oily skin and my wedding was outside in july. My makeup withstood all evening with very little shine. My makeup was flawless and I received sooooo many compliments. We had people add on for makeup after they saw what an amazing job she does. She also comes to you which is stress free for the wedding day.

    Amy is fantastic!! If you’re on the fence about booking her for your wedding...do it! I didn’t have a ton of parameters for my wedding makeup, I let Amy work her magic and I’m glad I did!! I’ve never felt more beautiful! Amy is a sweetheart, I’m so thankful she was a part of my wedding day!

    Amy was amazing! From the trial to the wedding day. I don't wear a lot of makeup and Amy took that into consideration when she did my makeup. I loved my wedding day makeup. She did me (the bride), bridesmaids, mothers and friends. She really exceeded everyone's expectations.

    Amy truly has a talent for making a bride look her best on her wedding day. I was looking for a makeup artist who could make me look great but still look like myself. In other words I didn't want to look like I was wearing a ton a makeup. I used Amy for my bridal portrait and wedding day and I could not have been more pleased with the results both times. She knew exactly how to adjust the make up for my bridal portrait versus my wedding day. In my opinion Amy can do natural makeup better than anyone in the area.

    I booked Amy for my wedding day last month. She was at the venue early and was already set up and ready to go when I got there. She responded to all my emails within hours. Our makeup was flawless and I got more compliments on it than I got on my dress. She was so calm and methodical it felt like she was one of the girls. I cannot praise her work enough, she is truly an artist. Her price was reasonable and she was able to work with a variety of different skin tones and individual preferences. If she is available BOOK HER!!! You wont regret it.

    Amy was amazing and the best, by far, in Wilmington. She is so good at what she does and made me feel truly beautiful on my wedding day. I am so picky about having my make up done because I don't wear much - and I can't tell you how much I loved my make up, I did not want to wash it off at the end of the night. I wish she could do it everyday! Thank you Amy - I will be visiting for a make up lesson soon!!!

    Amy did an absolutely fantastic job with make up for myself, my bridesmaids, and my mother. I chose her because of her stellar reviews (both Wedding Wire and from my other vendors), looking through her portfolio, and experience with sensitive skin. Amy was so friendly and professional and made me feel at ease despite the rough start I had my the morning of my wedding. I was glowing in all of my pictures, despite only getting 3 hours of sleep the night before and waking up that morning looking like a zombie. No one knew, except my mother and bridesmaids!! She even convinced my mother, who wears very little make up to go with the fake lashes. My mother was so pleased with her more natural look. Thank you Amy! I'd love to come back to Wilmington soon and schedule a make up lesson with you.

    Amy is a makeup super star. She was able to flawlessly do my makeup (airbrush), my 8 bridesmaids, and MOB the morning before our 2pm ceremony. She uses top quality makeup brands and customized each girls' makeup while staying true the 'soft/natural' look I had requested. My airbrush makeup lasted all night long and looked stunning. You can't go wrong with booking Amy for any event makeup!

    Amy is a true artist! I had my makeup done by Amy for my wedding and I absolutely loved the results. I wanted to look fairly natural but still have the makeup show well in photographs and that's exactly what Amy accomplished. My bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law and friend were all extremely happy with their makeup as well! She's fast, talented and easy to work with!

    Amy was amazing. Make up looked flawless for myself and all 8 of my bridesmaids. When I asked her to bring along support to better work with my timeline, she was more than helpful and brought along Danielle, who was also amazing. Amy's calm energy was a great mix to the room as well. Makeup was flawless and stayed on all night.

    I can only say wonderful things about Amy and her work. Amy was great to work with throughout the entire process, from scheduling, to the trial session, and finally to the big day. Not only did Amy do my makeup, but she also did the makeup for all 8 of my bridesmaids, my mom, and my now husband's mom. She truly did a phenomenal job in her work on each and every individual. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their wedding day or other special occasion. Thank you so much again, Amy!

    Amy Kennison was amazing. She isn't just a make up artist, she is an artist. I told her the look I wanted on my wedding day, and she exceeded all my exceptions. I told her I didn't want a natural look and wanted a dramatic look. She made that happen. All my bridesmaids, and my mother were so beautiful. Amy made me feel comfortable and like a princess on my wedding day. I will defiently be using her for future occasions and make up lessons. I highly recommend her, she will not disappoint! Thank you again Amy for your amazing work!

    I NEVER like it when other people do my makeup. I have had famous makeup artists do my makeup - I hated it. I've had tv people do my makeup - I hated it. I did numerous makeup trials in Wilmington and they were ok, but I either rushed home to do my makeup or had my sister fix it by the time I got home.

    After doing my makeup trial with Amy, I immediately booked her for my wedding a year in advance. She wasn't pushy with a deposit or signing a contract. She didn't even need to coordinate with my wedding planner - I loved that she communicated with me directly.

    Amy was so sweet and has such a calming personality. She even gave my little sister, who wants to be a makeup artist, some tips and tricks of the trade. I needed Amy to do 11 full-faces of makeup for my wedding and false eyelashes and she wasn't even breaking a sweat by the end of it. We started on time at 8:30 (she was there early) and finished in plenty of time to take pictures. Everyone's makeup was spectacular and she listened to what each person wanted and brought everything to vision. Almost every single bridesmaid asked me for Amy's email after my wedding so they could ask her about what products she used on them.

    Amy's makeup application was so on point that I actually slept with my makeup on and it looked FLAWLESS the next day!

    I feel like wedding makeup has a certain look and I didn't want that when I got married. I just wanted to look like a better version of myself. Amy did that for me, and for that reason I CANNOT recommend her enough! If you are getting married soon - book her immediately and thank me later!

    Where do I start?! Amy was FANTASTIC! She did my makeup for bridal portraits and my wedding day. Amy was very professional to work with and passionate about making you feel absolutely beautiful. My wedding day make up survived through tears, laughter creasing, eating, and hours of dancing. I was truly amazed that it still looked fresh at the end of the night! I would recommend Amy to anyone!

    Amy is awesome! She provided make up services for both my engagement photos and my wedding. She is very friendly, professional and flexible (I had to reschedule my engagement photos three times last minute). Will definitely use Amy for any future special occasions and will recommended to anyone I know needing makeup done! Thank you Amy for being a part of my wedding day!
