Get ready for your wedding in the comfort of your own home or event location!

MY PHILOSOPHY:
I believe that the best Makeup Artists are truly skilled artists that have chosen to use makeup as their medium and the face as their canvas. It is impossible to be a great Makeup Artist without first understanding color theory, shape & contour. One of the many reasons I find this field to be so intriguing is that every face shape, every skin color, every eye shape & color, every lip shape & color, etc. is unique. A proper makeup application should be customized to each individual based on all of these factors. The best Makeup Artists I have met and learned from in this business were artists of other mediums first. I pride myself in being an artist with a background in drawing and painting before pursuing my career in makeup.



OUR MAKEUP KITS:
We carry skin care and makeup for all skin types that are also photographic safe. A majority of our products are from the Bobbi Brown, Make Up Forever, MAC, and Temptu cosmetics. We also carry random favorites from various other lines. All products are of the best quality and are long wearing so you look your best all day/night long!

Airbrush makeup and traditional makeup options are offered. For more info please visit our website at www.amyelizabethmakeup.com

We just had a wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY. We had contacted Amy Elizabeth and were put in touch with Andrea Wilcox in Troy NY.Andrea is AMAZING. She is so talented and fun. She came to our small cottage, set up by a window and proceeded to make up the 2 maids of honour, MOB and the bride. Each looked different but very complimentary. The pictures are amazing and 8 hours later everyone still looked incredible. (Andrea had even thought about the lip colour that would compliment the groom, when kissed by the bride!)
This was such a wonderful investment for an amazing wedding day with spectacular results. Thank you Andrea so much and Amy for this great service.

I've known Amy for a few years now and actually requested that she do my wedding make up before I was even engaged! Of course she and her assistant did an amazing job. My bridesmaid slipped in the shower the morning of the wedding and cut her face in several places. They were able to cover that up so well that you couldn't even see the damage. My photographers actually commented that Amy does such a great job that they are able to take awesome close ups of her brides. Lastly, the fire alarm went off at our hotel as Amy was working on my makeup and she quickly grabbed all of her materials and proceeded to work on my makeup in the lobby without a hitch, like a pro :)

About a month before my wedding, I decided I should probably not be left alone to attempt my own makeup. Jenn of Timeless Updos recommended Andrea as a make-up artist she'd worked with before and got me an appointment for a trial with less than 30 days to go before my wedding. I had stalled on getting a make-up artist because I don't really "do" makeup...and my skin care routine could certainly be improved upon. To be frank-I was worried about the judgements and regiments that might be passed down if I sought out a professional of this sort. Andrea was none of what I expected and all of what I wanted. She was funny and human and easy to relate to. She also happens to do makeup professionally. We had a great time, even at the trial, addressing specific skin concerns and coverage and color options. She kindly and gently talked me down from a few of my more "artistic" ideas that no real life person should try for their wedding day...especially those of us who don't normally wear much, if any, makeup.

She traveled to my venue to get me and my wedding party all done up in the morning before the wedding. She airbrushed away some blemishes and discolorations and unfortunate tan lines. She was a joy to work with and was a fantastic value.

I hired Andrea Lyn from Amy Elizabeth Makeup Design to do the makeup for my wedding. Amy and Andrea were so great to work with. I have a super busy schedule and Andrea met with me a week before the wedding to do my makeup trial. She was so receptive to my likes and dislikes. She also offered realistic beauty advice for the week leading up to the wedding.

The day of the wedding, Andrea was super prepared and got right to work. In addition to my makeup, Andrea was tasked with applying makeup to 5 bridesmaids (out of 7) and mother of the groom. As the morning went on, one of my bridesmaids (not originally in the count) loved Andrea's work and wanted her make up done. Andrea was so professional and agreed to it if she had time. She was ahead of schedule and was able to do everyone's make up.

The morning of the wedding went so smoothly! I definitely contribute it to Andrea's calm and fun personality. The makeup was so lovely and natural! I am not a big makeup person. Andrea did a wonderful job using the makeup to accentuate my features while not "caking on" the makeup. I also decided to go with the airbrush option. I highly recommended this! This was an all day event! The makeup lasted all night. All I had to do was blot my face (blotting pads came in my makeup kit from Andrea).

As I look through my photos, I just know that these photos will be timeless because the makeup was done so well.

Amy Elizabeth Designs is fresh and perfectly responsive to you as a customer. She scheduled easily and with two girls that were perfect for makeup and hair! Andrea and Krystal! I am so grateful for both of them!

KRYSTAL~ I felt at ease with Krystal Rose through each of the three sessions I had with her. First, she came to my house for my engagement photos to do my hair and makeup. She listened to what I wanted and artistically created a beautiful face and hair:) She is sweet and honest. I felt and looked beautiful and glowing!
Next, we had a bridal hair trial at her own salon. We did something slightly different with my hair. I LOVED IT! Then for the wedding she adjusted things creatively after accepting my honest thoughts and gave me a me a sexy, beautiful "Great Gatsby" soft curly style.......I am so in love with my wedding hair! I would wear it everyday:) Thank you Krystal Rose:) You are beautiful, talented and work VERY HARD!

ANDREA~ Andrea is so much fun to work with! She listens to what you want and creatively gives you a beautiful presentation:) I LOVED my makeup for our wedding and my husband could not stop staring and complimenting! She works with your natural features and knows how to get you camera ready.

Andrea worked hard ALL DAY long at our wedding site (all bridesmaids, flower girls and mothers/aunts!!!).

My eye makeup was perfect! I highly recommend the airbrush makeup:) It held up late into the night.

Thank you, Andrea:)

I am grateful! You both made all of the lovely ladies you worked on ALL day look stunning and beautiful:))) Sexy, pretty, chic, romantic:))

I had a lovely experience with Amy Elizabeth Makeup Designs. It was difficult to find any true makeup artists in the Saratoga area that works with you in such an easy, detailed fashion. Amy Elizabeth Designs delivers professional service dedicated to artistically creating a beautiful, gorgeous presentation of YOU!

Finding someone to do my makeup was probably the most difficult vendor for me. I had several different trials with others and since I normally wear little or no makeup, I'd feel absolutely absurd once everything was all piled on. I honestly was about skip hiring someone altogether when I went for a trial with Andrea of Amy Elizabeth. It was the ONLY time I loved my makeup (as opposed to racing to the nearest sink to scrub it all off). I hope I get this right, but I think her background was with Bobbi Brown, which I'd say is the "style" of makeup I enjoy most in ads - simple, pretty, natural - as compared to the boldness of Mac. Not only did I love my makeup, but my Mom was probably going to be the pickiest of all and she absolutely LOVED hers too. Andrea was all around an ideal professional to work with - she was on time, organzied, flexible, read the situation well, etc, etc. You can tell she does this all the time and thrives in this environment (whereas the woman doing my hair - someone totally separate who is not affiliated with Amy Elizabeth at all - seemed much less comfortable and less suited to doing weddings). With them working in the same space the professionalism of Andrea stood out to me. I HIGHLY recommend Andrea of Amy Elizabeth!

I met with Amy for a trial run and she gave me the look that I wanted for my wedding day. As it turns out Amy had an emergency situation come up on my wedding day, but she handled the situation professionally and sent her assistant in her place. Gina was amazing and did exactly what Amy had done during the trial! I didn't have to worry about someone not knowing what I wanted and I was impressed that Amy was able to keep me at ease and send a replacement of the same caliber as herself. I would highly recommend Amy for any type of event or her assistant Gina! Thank you!!

I called Amy sort of last minute (a few weeks before the wedding) because my experience at the other make-up vendor was pretty terrible. Amy was extremely professional and extremely accomodating. She was willing to work with my tight schedule with no qualms. Andrea (an artist who works for the company) came ready to go. We didn't have a trial together; she listened and then showed me some pictures to ensure she knew what I was saying. Some of my family members and friends started getting their make-up done and by the end of the morning, a few more (who weren't planning on getting theirs done) were signed up to get made up. That's how good everyone was looking. The make-up the team uses is the best--they are not committed to just one company like other local salons, so they can use whatever is best for a natural and photogenic look. The images look beautiful. I am impressed.
