INFO FOR BEAUTY & HEALTH

What beauty services do you offer?
Facial, Makeup
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?
There is a $75 fee for trials, they last approximately one hour and are done in one of two studio locations. Trials include consultation, makeup and lash application.
Do you provide any specialty services? (airbrushing, hair extensions, etc.)
Airbrush makeup and artificial lash application.
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
All of my services are done on location. There is no fee for brides within a 20 mile radius of St.Augustine. There is a travel fee for clients in Palatka, Gainesville, Ocala and Jacksonville and is assessed at .42 per mile round trip. Brides outside of the above mentioned area are subject to travel fee at artist discretion. In addition for out of town brides I do require a $150 minimum or full bridesmaid participation.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
It takes approximately 45 minutes to prepare the bride and 30 minutes for each person in the bridal party. If I am brought in early enough I can do all members of the bridal party regardless of size. I also have an assistant available for very large parties at no additional cost.
How far in advance should clients book your services?
I am currently booking about 6-8 months in advance and do have some weddings booked more than a year away. It is important that you book your wedding early. However, I do occasionally have last minute spots available, so feel free to email me!
What is your cancellation policy?
I collect the $75 payment for the trial at time of booking. This payment is non-refundable if trial is cancelled. A $100 retainer is collected at time of contract signing for wedding day services, this retainer is also non-refundable or transferable if bride elects to cancel wedding services.

Amanda and her crew were so great! I had used Amanda for my makeup and hair for my engagement pictures and those turned out gorgeous so I trusted her completely to do whatever she wanted for the wedding. Her hair stylist, Julia, was amazing too, any picture my bridal party handed her she recreated perfectly and quickly. My hair was gorgeous, stayed in place and didn't feel like plastic! On top of their professional work, Amanda and her team were really fun to spend a large chunk of the wedding day with. I hope I find another excuse to get to use Amanda again! These ladies rock!

Doing the practice-run with Amanda was the best idea ever. She is a true professional with a whole big box of tools to conduct her craft. She used all of her knowledge and experience to answer my questions, to show me options that would work for my face, and to create the look that was a "glammed up version of myself." She laughed when I told her that my fiance requested that I still look like me. And she absolutely accomplished it.

On the day of our wedding she and her assistant met us at the PVB Lodge & Club, and with efficiency, expertise, and a perfectionist eye, they completed the looks for my two bridal attendances, my grandmother, mother and myself. Throughout the experience they were conversational yet on task, and we all came away looking very much like glamorous versions of ourselves.

Amanda and her team were fantastic! I frantically called Amanda about a month before our wedding because I had two other trails done with other make up artists and hated both of them! I explained all this to Amanda over the phone and told her that I just wanted a natural look on my wedding day. She took the time to talk to me for about 20 minutes about what I wanted, what I liked and didn't like, and assured me that she could help. When I hung up the phone, I felt like I was in the right hands - finally!

We scheduled a trial for later that week and I loved the results. It was a natural look, but you could tell I had a little something extra done for the wedding day. It was perfect!

On the day of the wedding she came with her team and completed our hair and makeup quickly and made everyone look fantastic. She even squeezed my mom in, who did not plan on having her makeup done!

Amanda was a life saver for me, and I would recommend her to anyone! She is amazing!

Amanda and her sister-in-law were a dynamic duo for my wedding day make-up needs! I had 7 bridesmaids, MIL, and mother, who all needing makeup, plus me! Not only did ALL of our make-up look phenomenal, but they truly were such a pleasure to have in our suite. Kind, funny, yet professional. I couldn't have been happier using Amanda and her team! You guys are awesome!

Amanda was fantastic! Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day and Amanda can make it happen. I showed her pictures of make up I liked and it was uncanny how she was able to replicate it. I've never felt as beautiful as I did that day. I DEFINITELY recommend her!

Amanda was wonderful both during the trial and day of event. I asked her to do just a "natural glam" look on myself, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride, and she made us look beautiful, just enough to highlight features for pictures without looking overly made up. Everyone got airbrushed make up and most got false eyelashes and they all lasted for >12 hours. She was a fun person to hang out with morning of the wedding, and I would recommend her to any bride!

I've known Amanda for a few years and when I got engaged there was no question as to who would be doing my make up for our wedding day! I changed my mind about the look/style I was going for once or twice and she was so sweet about making me feel confident and comfortable on my wedding day. BOOK THIS GAL AND HER TEAM. THEY ARE AMAZING, PROFESSIONAL, AND A TOTAL JOY TO WORK WITH! She will bend over backwards to give you what you want and make you feel gorgeous, NO MATTER the event :)

Amanda was amazing! She helped me figure out the look I was going for at our makeup trials. She made it very confortable at the trials to talk about what I did like and what I did not like. She emailed me back quickly with any question that I had. On my wedding day she was amazing. She helped me keep the hairstylists on time as well as all the girls that needed their makeup done. My makeup was beyond amazing and I am still receiving compliments on my wedding day makeup. All of my bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law looked stunning because of Amanda. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone that needs maekup done for any event. She is a great artist and is so easy to be around! Thank you so much Amanda!!!

Amanda and Angie did a FANTASTIC job on my makeup and hair for my wedding. Not only were they so fun to be around, they made me look and feel like a true princess on my wedding day. I got so many compliments that I looked the best I ever have, and that couldn't have been done without their professionalism and expertise! It rained all day the day of my wedding, and Amanda actually went above and beyond by arranging for a car service to come pick up my bridal party and myself so that we wouldn't have to walk to the venue in the rain. I would also like to add that I took pictures for a total of three hours in the rain, danced my face off, and shed a few tears that night and my makeup & hair looked just as perfect at the end of the night as it did at 10am. They ensured I stayed on schedule, even with a bridal party of 10 girls. I would STRONGLY recommend these girls to any bride looking to feel like an absolute Barbie on their wedding day.

Amanda was incredibly warm and made me feel so relaxed when I should have been incredibly nervous. She made me feel confident about myself and made me feel very beautiful on my big day. My make up did not smudge a bit, even though a dolphin splashed my whole face with at least a gallon of salt water after my ceremony! I couldn't have had a better experience with a hair and make up team! Amanda, Julia and Aeriel were all fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone!

I loved working with Amanda Hopcraft for my wedding day makeup! I had a large bridal group and most of them were also having full-makeup or just eyes done. Amanda showed up on time with assistants and began working right away. She did an amazing job and everyone loved their finished product. She encouraged me to go with a size lash we thought was at first two big, but I ended up LOVING all my photos- she really knows makeup and what looks good on each individual. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family. Thank you Amanda!

Amanda and Angie were amazing! I can't say enough good things about them. Angie did my hair and after showing her a few photos for inspiration she created a unique style that fit me perfectly! Amanda is also amazing and makes her job seem effortless. I almost cried when I looked in the mirror because I looked so beautiful. I had a hair and make up trial more for peace of mind and I recommend it so you can meet them and discuss any ideas you have. Ultimately though I would 110% trust Amanda and Angie to do whatever hairstyle/make up they thought would suit me. They were both professional, friendly, and amazing at what they do. I didn't want to wash my face or take my hair down because it was great. You will not regret going with Amanda Hopcraft's team as she hires only the best!

Amanda and her team did a fantastic job on hair and makeup. I was very pleased, and all of my bridesmaids were also pleased. Amanda's pricing is pretty typical to the upper-end for the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area, but my mid-west family and bridesmaids were not used to paying that much for such services. I think that when it was all said and done, though, they were happy to pay more than expected for the quality of work.

I do not typically write reviews but I simply had to take a few minutes to write one and brag about Amanda because she is an awesome makeup artist.

I am somewhat of a makeup junkie myself but I still wanted that professional look for photos and everything on my wedding day. When I actually opted to do my own makeup, Amanda agreed to give myself (and my maid of honor) some lessons to take our makeup game to the next level. She was amazing and provided me with some of the simplest yet most helpful tips and tricks to make my face looks flawless. Not only did I feel confident and comfortable on my wedding day, but I learned some of the best techniques to make my makeup look better on a regular basis. I got and continue to get tons of compliments and requests from others to do their makeup.

Aside from all that she was consistently very quick in her responses to my emails/phone calls and always maintained a professional attitude. She also has a super fun personality that makes everything relaxed and fun - which is really the way makeup should be! If you are looking for a makeup artist for your wedding/event or even if you just want to take lessons like I did - I highly recommend going to Amanda!!

One thing I can honestly say I was not worried about going wrong on my wedding day, was my makeup. That's because Amanda was so patient with me during my bridal makeup trial. She charges $75 for this, which is well worth the money-trust me! I brought my iPad to the appointment and showed Amanda a few pictures I had pinned on Pintrest and described the look I wanted for my wedding day. As she airbrushed my makeup, applied blush and eyeshadow, and applied false lashes she was so personable and honest about her experience as a makeup artist. I instantly felt comfortable with her and could tell she loves doing this. She could tell I was dying to see the progress so she gave me a mirror and asked what I thought. I loved how even the airbrushed foundation looked but I thought the eyeshadow was a little too dark and not the right shape. She was so professional (she didn't take it personal and didn't get frustrated) and asked me to clarify how I wanted the eyeshadow to look. She immediately understood what I meant, made some changes, and the next time I looked in the mirror I was so happy; I thought it was perfect! Then, she applied a couple of lip stains and lip glosses until I found the one I wanted. I am so grateful that Amanda was as patient with me as she was during the trial. I could tell that she wanted to get it right and she wanted me to be happy. After I left the trial appointment, I knew if I had Amanda doing my makeup, it was going to be perfect on my wedding day. So, I decided to hire Amanda to do my makeup, my mom's makeup, and my bridesmaids' makeup. The day of the wedding, Amanda and her assistant, Ariel, showed up on time and ready to get started. Amanda and Ariel were so friendly to my mom and bridesmaids and so flexible about who was getting done and where they were going to work. They were done on time and everyone looked so beautiful. To any bride in the Jacksonville or St. Augustine area, I highly recommend Amanda Hopcraft-Makeup Artist!

Amanda was amazing from the beginning. I emailed a LOT of make up artist and Amanda responded to all my emails and questions in a timely manner. She was very patient with me as I was clearly nervous about trying to find the right person to do my makeup. After everything was decided she was flexible with her time to get my trial done. I work long hours all week and she let me come in late and "crash" her friends night out just to do my make up. I was unsure of exactly what I wanted, but when I let her have the wheel and drive she did an AMAZING job. I thought I looked pretty hot to say the least. :-) She had great suggestions and knows exactly what she is doing.

On my wedding day she showed up on time, ready to go! She did her work in a very reasonable amount of time allowing me plenty of time to get ready for the rest of the morning. (I had a morning wedding). Everyone loved the makeup. Even my photographer wanted to take just face shots. She made look like a model and my pictures turned out beautiful. She also gave great tips on how to maintain my makeup through out the day.

I will be recommending Amanda to any I meet who is looking for a make up artist. She was a blast. Thank you Amanda for making my day wonderful. I really did feel like the princess of the ball.

They were worth every penny and more!I was also worried about my hair and makeup holding up in the heat and humidity. The assured me all would be good, and it was! Both held up all night. They also provided hair and makeup services to my mother. They did a fantastic job knowing what makeup and hairstyle would make her more beautiful. I can't say enough how much I appeciated them!

Amazing! I went into it having absolutely no idea what kind of makeup I wanted for my wedding, but she was very flexible and made me (and my whole wedding party) feel at ease. I loved what she picked out for me and it was exactly what I was looking for!

I didn’t know where to start when it came to selecting a makeup artist, I didn't know any recent brides in the area so I searched through tons of posts, blogs, and pictures looking at makeup on Brides, Mother of the Brides, and Bridesmaids. I found a bride that looked elegant but natural and scrolled down to see that Amanda was to credit. I did a trial run before the big day to get to know Amanda and play with our options. She was great to be around the morning of and did an amazing job! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! - Kerri M. (Married: 5/4/13)

I contacted Amanda less then a week before my wedding date. I realized, way too late, that I probably wasn't up to doing my hair and make-up in a way that wouldn't look like any other day. Amanda and her mother-in-law were able to fit me in to their VERY busy day and absolutely made me look and feel like a beautiful bride.

I can not thank Amanda and Julia enough for making my girls and me look amazing! Amanda is so great, she has such an awesome personality, I feel like I have known her for years! Julia is a hair magician. My hair looked exactly like the picture I brought in. I had no idea how I wanted my bridesmaids hair, and between the two they nailed it. I have never felt more beautiful and it's thanks to Amanda and Julia. You are fabulous and I would recommend you to anyone, if not for your fantastic skills, then just to hang out with a totally awesome chic!

I worked with Julie for both my make-up trial and day of. Julie is talented, kind, and enthusiastic. She asked lots of questions and listened to what I wanted. And I was so so happy with the look we achieved!

I communicated with Amanda via email for setting up the make up trial and all the day of details. She was was prompt and professional in her responses and always replied within 24 hours. She would send emails confirming information and outlining all the details to make sure everything went smoothly which made me so confident and relaxed going into the big day!

I highly recommend Amanda and her talented make-up artists!

It was just an amazing job all around. They came right to my hotel. It was great. I would recommend them for any bride!!!!

I had a destination wedding and needed to select a make-up artist who I didn't know or didn't have a referral. So I went on the Wedding Wire and read reviews on Amanda Hopcraft, watched her You Tube Videos and was sold! The first time I met Amanda was my wedding make-up trial, a week before my wedding. Yes, I put all my eggs in one basket and went for it! It was everything I imagined. She was professional with her emails, phone calls, sent a receipt right after purchase, and listened to my wants and needs. After my bridal make-up trial, I gave her a few corrections to make the day of the wedding and Amanda nailed it! I couldn't have been happier with the results of my make-up nor could my bridesmaids and my mother. We were extremely happy. Not to mention, her personality is AWESOME!
Yes, I would recommend Amanda Hopcraft hands down :)

Amanda was a complete pleasure to work with from the time she walked into the door. She did an amazing job with my bridesmaids and my makeup was exactly what I wanted it to be. I'm not in to heavy makeup at all yet she was able to work her magic so my face didn't look painted on yet it was perfect in pictures and stayed put throughout the ceremony and reception (even through the happy tears). Her team of hairstylists were great too. I showed them a picture from Pinterest and they were able to recreate it with no problem. We were married on a rooftop on the coast so it was pretty windy during the ceremony. Not only did my hair stay completely put but it didn't actually LOOK like it was crunchy and full of hairspray. I would absolutely recommend Amanda Hopcraft to any bride!

Amanda is one talented little lady!! Actually, her entire team is just wonderful. Amanda and Julia were such fun to be around, and made me so comfortable throughout the whole process. I had never hired anyone to do my makeup before, so this overall was a new experience for me. She was very sweet and prompt with her replies even when she was busy. I can tell you that what I wanted was no simple hair and makeup look and both Amanda and Julia effortlessly created perfection and the finished product was BEYOND what I was expecting. Any girl who has experimented with red lips will know that it is a hard thing to pull off. Not only do you have to have a shade of red that compliments your skin, it must also last for hours without bleeding or cracking and be a flawless part of an overall look that doesn't automatically pull the focus straight to your bright red lips. Amanda created a custom color for me which lasted through the Florida heat, the first kiss (and several others after that), and long after the wedding was over and done. My wedding was Snow White inspired and it was pure talent that these two ladies could create a modern day fairytale look that was dreamy, romantic and gorgeous. Amanda and Julia worked together in a way where they are almost one person. They look out for each other and are able to get the job done while being completely aware and involved in what the other is doing. Absolutely amazing, every second of my interaction with them was absolutely stellar.

I am not a person that has ever before this day had my make-up professionally done but I was so thankful that I did on this day...it made all the difference. The look on my husband's face when I walked down the aisle to him was Priceless!!! He said for him I was absolutely stunning and that made my whole day. Thanks so much to Amanda (and of course her sister-in-law, for doing my hair!!!) you two are the best and so very appreciated!

I got married on a rainy day on 3/23/13 in St. Augustine. The ceremony was to be held at outdoors and it rained all day, but I had faith that the rain would subside and I decided to keep the ceremony outside. When Amanda, Hannah, and Julia showed up they made me feel better with their laid back/funny attitude. Hiring Amanda and her crew for my hair/makeup was the best decision I had made. I was able to remain calm because I did not have to worry about traveling to and from a salon for hair/makeup and they were very prompt. Amanda assured me that my har and makeup would only take an hour and at first I wasn't convinced because I have so much hair, but sure enough they were done in 40 minutes (eventhough i didn't even have a trial session)! Amanda and Julia were able to make my vision a reality and I was extremely happy with how everything turned out. My makeup was natural and with the airbrush foundation it did not even feel like I had makeup on. And best of all, it lasted me ALL day and night. And Julia did wonders with my hair since it lasted all day despite the humidity/rain, my hair was soft, shiny, and frizz-free. I HIGHLY recommend Amanda and her staff for your special day. Everyone deserves to be treated like a princess on their wedding day and Amanda and her crew will make sure you feel and look special!
p.s.Thank you ladies for making me look so beautiful on my day, I feel so blessed I came across your reviews on Wedding Wire when I was looking for someone to do my hair/makeup =)

If you want to look beautiful for your event, hire Amanda Hopcraft. I found her through the web and these helpful reviews for my destination wedding in St. Augustine, Fl. I interviewed two make-up artists and then through recommendation of my photographer, Zach Thomas (who's also amazing and reviewed separately:)), I chose Amanda. I'm glad I did!
I'm a bride of 63 and, as any bride would, wanted to look amazing both at my event and in my photographs. And that's what I got! I went for a trial session before my wedding where I met Amanda in person. We had a chance to consult and have her experiment with my makeup to make sure I'd be happy. I suggest strongly that you have a trial session to work through what you want.
Amanda is professional, warm, talented and a perfectionist. Just what I was looking for! :) If she could make a well sasoned bride like me appear almost flawless and radiant you too will be pleased with her work.

Amanda was an amazing last minute find. I had, in some crazy state of mind, originally planned to do my hair and make-up. Gratefully, I received excellent advice and chose to take the much more enjoyable and relaxing approach of getting some professional help. Originally, I only booked her for make-up but during our make-up trial she agreed to do my hair as well. The results were fabulous - which is saying a lot given my acne (scars and all) and a head of thick, short, curly hair that she miraculously put into a graceful updo. And on top of it all working with her was incredibly fun and relaxing. I can't recommend her enough.

Amanda did such and amazing job! I first learned of her services through my best friend (I was a bridesmaid). I loved the way she did my makeup, so when it came time for my wedding -I knew just the person. My bridesmaids are still talking about it. She was early to the venue, which I loved. She asked each bridesmaid about their style and how they usually wear makeup if any. She did all my girl's makeup and lashes. I was allowed to do a deposit and then pay the rest before the wedding date. The contract was detailed and left no room for vague interpretation. She stayed in touch with me at least once or twice a month just to see how things were going and as it got closer, we had a phone meeting to discuss day of timelines, how I wanted to look, and any questions I had about makeup. Her fee was super reasonable and I will definately refer her to anyone who ask about a good makeup artist who is friendly, experienced, and will make you look beautiful on your big day.

They were very accommodating when I needed to change where I was going to get ready and went above and beyond their call of duty by actually getting me into my gown since we eloped and I did not have a girlfriend there to help me get dressed. I could not have gotten through my day without the two of them. I highly recommend Amanda and her hair team to get you ready for your big day :)

I am so happy that she proved me wrong. She made me look EXACTLY how I envisioned and I booked her immediately. On the day of my wedding Amanda was absolutely great. All of my bridesmaids loved her and thought they looked amazing as well. Amanda was such a great person to have around that day and made the time we sat in her chair fly by.

Amanda did a wonderful job on my make-up for our '50's themed wedding! I don't typically wear make-up (I can say until Amanda did my wedding make-up I had not worn ANY make-up for at least 2 1/2 years) but Amanda did a great job of making it look like make-up is something that I wear regularly. She kept things natural and the only "wild" thing we did were my red lips (have to have that for the '50's style 'pin-up' look :)!). My lips looked great and not one bit "unnatural" for someone who never wears make-up!! I would not hesitate to hire Amanda again or recommend her to anyone looking for a make-up artist!

When I came to my trial, I gave her a few ideas about what I wanted to have done, and she completely understood the look I was going for. Then on my wedding day she blew me away with her speed in skill - she did full makeup for 5 people in 2.5 hours! I have to say, I loved (and still love) the way I looked on my wedding day. I did not look overdone at all, but a better version of the way I look everyday. I will recommend her to everyone I can!

The most important day of your life, your wedding. You want everything to be perfect. With me recently moving into the area I thought that finding a makeup artist and hairstylist would be near impossible. Amanda Hopcraft blew away any expectations I had. All of my bridesmaids were extremely please with the work that was done. All I heard was you got the best of everything; makeup artist, hair stylist, etc etc. Amanda was easy going and did her job with ease. She really seems to enjoy what she does, and that was a huge selling point for me. Passion for your profession is key. My wedding day was amazing and it all started with Amanda and her crew.

She responds quickly to emails and follows through with any promise she makes. I highly recommend her for any special day.

I chose to do a makeup trial before my wedding day, which couldn't have gone any better. She asked me what I had in mind for my big day, and I really had no idea. She said that was fine and went to work. I couldn't believe my eyes when she was done and I looked in the mirror! I looked so beautiful!:) I knew I was very lucky to have found her and couldn't wait for my wedding day. Any time I had a question, she would get back to me right away. I was relieved that I had one less thing to worry about! She arrived right on schedule on my wedding day, and did a bridesmaid and the two mom's makeup first. I have never seen them look so beautiful! I was really nervous, and she helped calm me down. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome! I loved my makeup and got compliments all night long. It was also very nice to not have to do too many touchups, as your wedding day is super busy! Amanda is an amazing artistand has a wonderful personality. I would highly recommend her!

She made me feel at ease and was able to adapt my make up to my style completely. I know I must have been high maintenance knowing that I hardly ever wear makeup and had a million questions. But she reassured me the whole way through. My mother and mother-in-law and bridesmaids were also very pleased with her services. Hands down, I recommend Amanda for your event big or small.

Ladies...look no further...Amanda is the one!
I just have to say that Amanda and I hit it off from the get go. She was extremely professional and responsive from my very first inquiry...oh, and did I mention TALENTED!?! I had a destination wedding on Jekyll Island and was very concerned about finding the right person to beautify my bridesmaids, my mother-in-law, and myself for the "Big Day". I am very particular, and like every bride, I wanted everything to be just perfect. I cannot praise Amanda enough. She worked her magic on all of us, and even took care of a couple of more ladies whom were not originally planning on getting their makeup done. It was wonderful that she was able to work them in as well. I must also say that Julia is an amazing hairdresser! Julia can create whatever style you have in mind. She is such a talent and will not let you leave her chair until your hair is perfect! My wedding was a true fairytale- Thanks to these ladies!!

I had found out about Amanda's talents through a Google search while planning for my wedding. I needed an artist that was available for a Tuesday morning wedding AND who could travel to a Bed & Breakfast in St. Augustine. I lucked out when I found Amanda's website through Wedding Wire as she was more than happy to work with my early wedding hours AND travel to do my makeup and hair onsite!

I absolutely adored Amanda since the moment I first e-mailed her; she is upbeat, considerate, professional and very genuine. I felt like I knew her immediately! We clicked right away (I was an "Amanda Bride," yeah!) and I was very impressed with her prompt replies to my e-mails and questions. Her rates are very reasonable and to be honest she could charge more! She is amazingly talented at makeup application and an expert in her field. My makeup was beautiful and my guests could not get over how gorgeous I looked! I wish I could have Amanda do my makeup every day! Her airbrushing technique is awesome and will leave your skin looking FLAWLESS all day!!

Before I close my review, I must also thank Amanda's hair stylist, Julia! Julia was absolutely fabulous and knows hair like the back of her hand! She is very creative but can give you the hairstyle you desire by just showing her a picture! My hair was exquisite for the wedding and again, I had no shortage of compliments from my guests! My wedding photos turned out beautifully and I have Amanda and Julia to thank. Also, they both offer hair and makeup trials for a small fee at their salon in Palatka; take advantage of this service! This way you can experiment and find that "perfect look" you want for your wedding day.

Thank you so much Amanda and Julia for making me a gorgeous bride! For those of you who are looking for the experts, look no further; Amanda and her hair stylists are the BEST!! You won't be sorry!! :)

Amanda is amazing! She did my makeup, our moms and my entire bridal party. My make-up trial was spot on. Come wedding day, it was even better - in fact it was perfect! I had a couple of breakouts on my cheek from all the late nights and she made them disappear. She was very easy to talk to, she made everyone feel comfortable and most specially - beautiful! We all loved our make-up. My bridesmaids kept saying how they do not feel like they are wearing any yet they feel and look gorgeous. Amanda is extremely talented and I highly recommend her!

Amanda is simply amazing. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and does a fantastic job. My wife normally doesn't wear any makeup. On our wedding day, her makeup looked so natural and beautiful. Amanda knew exactly the amount of makeup to use and it felt light and fresh. I usually wear some makeup and I was truly amazed at Amanda's work. Not only was it beautiful in-person, but it really looked great in the photography and videography. She did makeup for my wife and I, my wife's mother, and our bridesmaids. Everyone was so happy and looked gorgeous for our special day. Thank you, Amanda!!

What does anyone want on their wedding day the most? They want to smile.. ALL DAY LONG.. No matter what doesn't go right, no matter if it was perfect or not.. No matter what happens.. you want to smile. Amanda did just that for me. You made me feel great on the outside with your awesome make-up skills and on the inside knowing I could relax because I was in the hands of a professional.

I highly recommend Amanda. Not only does she do amazing work, she is a very professional to work with. (**Brides professionalism will be your best friend when choosing/working with wedding vendors)

Thanks again Amanda, Connie and Hannah! You truly were a huge part of making my wedding day the greastest day of my life!

Amanda is such an easy going girl to work with. She is very professional and has wonderful personality. She did such an amazing job on my make up for my special day. It even turned out better than the trial make up, it that was even possible. Amanda was quick and made it even possible for me to get a quick bite of lunch. She was especially patient and had fun with the flower girls who would not leave my side as she put on my make up. If I have another special occasion, I would love to work with her again.

I booked my appointment with Amanda sort of at the last minute (only about 5 weeks prior to my wedding). She was extremely helpful and accommodating. We did a makeup trial, and a spray tan trial prior to the day. She really listened to what I said I wanted for my make-up and the day-of product was nothing short of perfect. It looked wonderful and it stayed on perfectly all night... in the SUMMER! She was on time, courteous, professional, and fairly priced. Couldn't have been happier!

After speaking to several hair/makeup companies in St. Augustine, Amanda had the most reasonable prices for makeup and comparable prices for hair. Myself, 3 bridesmaids. and my mom got airbrush makeup and it was flawless! I had a trial of hair and makeup where I met at their shop in Palatka and they really listened to what I wanted and made sure I was happy before I left. Amanda did our makeup and her mother in law did our hair. I would highly recommend her to others.

I just got married on June 4th and Amanda was absolutely amazing! I have never felt more beautiful in my life and it is all thanks to the unbelievable work that Amanda did. After a week of entertaining guests and some very late nights, as you can imagine I looked very tired and worn out. Amanda made me look like a movie star! I even had terrible tan lines on my chest that she was able to cover up flawlessly! In addition to me, Amanda worked on my 3 other bridesmaids and made them look even more beautiful! I have had countless people comment on my photos about how great our makeup looked! And I couldn't agree more!

Amanda is fabulous to work with! She calmed me down on a very hectic day and she was attentive and precisely on time every time we met! I would recommend Amanda to any bride, if you have her do your makeup you will truly shine on your BIG day!

Amanda did an AMAZING job on my bridal makeup. She took the time to really listen to what look i was going for, which was very natural but defined, and she gave me just that! She made me look like me, only 1,000x better! She also did my mother's makeup and she looked great! The airbrush makeup is soooooooo lightweight, but it also held up VERY well. I even managed to wash my face without disrupting the false eyelashes and they lasted until I removed them the following night.......lol :-)

Amanda is fun, personable, and her communication is fabulous. I would hire her again in a second! Can't recommend her enough!

This was my first experience with the airbrushed makeup and I am so impressed with it. It looked awesome in all of the pictures and I didn't have to touch it up the entire night. It's flawless. Amanda was very flexible and did our makeup onsite at the Casa Monica hotel. She was very promt, professional and kept us right on schedule. She's super sweet and made everyone feel comfortable.

She showed up, and got straight to work on covering up a BIG tattoo on my arm that wasn't completed yet. It came out so well, and my pictures still came out great! Also, she made me actually look like MYSELF! I was so afraid of going with anyone that would make my girls and I look over done...but I loved it! Words cannot express how satisfied I was working with her, and definitely look forward to working with her in the future, should the need arise! One more thing...if you choose Amanda, ask her about Julia, and her AMAZING hairdresser skills!

Amanda did a WONDERFUL job making myself and my wedding party look amazing on my wedding day. She did such an amazing job making everyone look done up, but also still look natural. All of the girls still looked like themselves, which meant a lot. For instance, I have freckles which makes me who I am, and Amanda made sure that I was still done up and also have my freckles showing. The airbrush machine she had, made everyone look flawless as well. She plans the day out where everyone can have their own time and not be rushed. Amanda made everyone look so beautiful and gorgeous, that I had family members who did not plan on getting make up done, change their mind last minute and Amanda still found time to add them in. She is very detailed and very professional. If you dont plan her to do your makeup for any special event that you have, then you're missing out. She even does a trial run with you to make sure you get everything you want and each application is perfect with your skin. She writes everything down, so that it is perfect on your special day. Her price is VERY affordable for what you're getting, and the brand of makeup she uses is top notch too. I will definitely use Amanda for my next special occasion! :)

Amanda did my make-up for my wedding and she did an absolutely wonderful job. I think that any one that wants one less thing to worry about on their wedding day to have Amanda do their make-up. I never really wore make up so as my wedding day got closer I had to figure something out and I had ran into Amanda at the store one day and got to talking to her and she said let me do your make-up so you don't have to worry about it. I had many complements on my make-up on my wedding day.

Long story short, my bridesmaid got ahold of her via phone due to my schedule I was not able to call during day hours. Beatiful natural looking skin, I have freckles & was not willing to hide them. Talked me into fake eye lashes, which I was completely against, however glad I decided to take her up on them. Does make close up pictures better! Lasted all night. Bridesmaids, mother & grandmother all love it. My neices also got just a little blush, complimentary! Too cute

I felt very much a beautiful bride on my big day, thanks to Amanda and Jamie, who did my makeup and hair respectively. Amanda runs a tight ship with her business -- she's super responsive for all the communication for booking and arrangements leading up to the wedding. I really like that they come on-site to do everything, so you don't need to run around. I absolutely loved the makeup work that Amanda did on me - it was natural and made my skin look amazing. I'm usually weary of makeup artists because I've had many bad experiences with overly done makeup, but I was super happy with the job that Amanda did. The only 1/2 star that I took off was for the value - it's not cheap but it was worth it.

For hairstyles, Jamie did a wonderful job on my, my mom's, and my mother-in-law's hairstyles. She was really sweet and took her time to make them perfect (while making sure that we liked the progress). The only hiccup was that Jamie showed up without mousse, which was necessary for our hairstyles. We didn't want to have full-on updo's but we did want her to make our hair a bit different from a typical day when we just wash and dry it. Maybe there was some miscommunication, but we ended up having to run to CVS to get the mousse. Luckily, ours was a small wedding so it wasn't that hectic and it all worked out. But for other brides, it might would be useful to verify with Amanda what products you expect her and stylist to have on your wedding day.

Overall, I had a very positive experience working with Amanda and Jamie and would highly recommend them to other brides.

Amanda did an amazing job on makeup, and Julie did a lovely job on hair. They arrived at 10 am and were able to do 8 girl's makeup and 7 girl's hair in about 3 hours. It was great having them come to the beach house where we were getting ready at – we were able to relax and enjoy mimosas while getting ready without being rushed. I definitely recommend them. Amanda is truely an artist when it comes to makeup.

Amanda was wonderful on the day of the wedding. No one in my bridal party had ever had professional makeup done before. She made us all feel very comfortable. Best of all she came to our hotel room and set up so we could all hang out and be comfortable! Everyone looked beautiful and we were done with early! Amanda will airbrush the makeup on so it really does stay all day. I have very difficult hair to work with and her team make the look I wanted last all night.

Amanda came to our hotel and did makeup and lashes for my mom, three bridesmaids and me. Julia did all of our hair. We were all very happy with the finished product! I arranged everything with Amanda via email a few months before my wedding. I ended up not doing a trial because I live more than 3 hours from St. Augustine and Both Amanda and Julia had wonderful reviews. They got to our room with plenty of time to do all of us without making us feel rushed. They were both very friendly and very concerned that we all were happy.

Amanda and her team did a fantastic job! My bridal group consisted of my two sisters- one from LA and the other from NY so their expectations were high. Amanda, her assistants & her hair stylist did exactly the look we wanted and it lasted all day. I would recommend her in a heart beat! She's totally worth the price especially considering the photographs, which by the way came out amazing thanks to them :-)

Amanda does a great job! She did my make up for my wedding and I got rave reviews from my family :-) I think she made me even look younger! In any case her choice in foundation matched my skin tone perfectly and I didn't look "overly made-up". My wedding pictures turned out very nicely because Amanda was able to bring out my natural coloring.

Amanda is awesome! I cannot tell you how beautiful I felt the day of my wedding. And yes, most people say this about their wedding day. However, Amanda not only helped to make me (and my girls) look beautiful, but to feel beautiful. She is great to deal with on a professional level, yet, she is so personable. After working with her, you feel like you've just gained a new friend! She treated my bridesmaids great which always help to calm nerves the day of the wedding. And she treated my mom and husbands mother even better! Everyone really enjoyed her! I am 110% satisfied!!!

The only complaint is her flexibility is not too great, because she's so busy (probably because she's so great) so book her as soon as possible! Book her for a couple of trials (you can always cancel if you don't need them) and the wedding day in as far advance as possible!

Amanda is very talented. During my trial she took the time to make my make-up JUST RIGHT. Thanks to her, I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. I highly recommend Amanda as well as her massage therapist!

I looooved my hair and makeup for my wedding and everything turned out just like I had hoped. Also, Amanda and her team are the perfect mix of professional and laid back! My only criticism is regarding the consultation that took place a few weeks prior to the wedding. I felt that the price charged for the consultation was not reflective in the work that was done. I would suggest lowering the price of the consultation or else amping up the service received and the quality of the finished product.

Amanda and her stylist did a excellent job on my hair and make up. I did truly love the way it turned out!! However, she was very slow on responding to emails. I waited over a week sometimes. As a bride it is frustrating to not hear from your vendors especially when it is both hair and makeup. They showed up very early 1030 for a 6pm wedding. I love that they were available and ready to work, but, we were all finished so early that we ended up just sitting around dressed and ready for a couple hours. When my photographer got there we were all done so I have no "getting ready" pictures :( I would recommend her because she did have quality work but definitely be prepared for tough communication.
