Amy was absolutely amazing!! Not only was my make-up perfect, but all my bridesmaids and mom looked flawless as well. Every single girl was so happy with the outcome of their make-up! I would highly recommend Amy to anyone in the Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach area. She was extremely reliable, very easy to communicate with, very very sweet and personable and so very talented at what she does.

Amy was the perfect choice for my wedding day! She is a very talented make-up artist and made us all look our very best. My wedding was at 11am in the morning so I was worried about finding someone who could meet our tight time schedule. Amy was so flexible and accommodating of my morning wedding. She was very professional and gritting ready was stress free. Amy provides great advice and recommendations on how to fully prepare to look your most radiant on your wedding day. I am so glad I choose to work with Amy and would again in the future!

Amy is as talented & skilled in her makeup artistry abilities as she is professional, punctual, kind & courteous. We met for my trial a well over a month in advance of my wedding date & she did a fabulous job so I had no doubt that she was going to do a wonderful job on the day of my wedding. She was entirely flexible in many ways, including allowing me to add more bridal clients to her roster with little prior notice. One week prior to my wedding, my dear mother suffered a terrible fall which resulted in nasty bruising to her face. Naturally, my mom was so worried that she would look poorly for our wedding photos but Amy took extra time & care to ensure that she would have no noticeable injuries! My mom looked incredible!! Her flexibility continued as I even changed my mind from our trial to go for a more subtle look & Amy obliged with no attitude, comment or fuss. She truly made my bridesmaids & I look totally glamorous & flawless & on behalf of my whole bridal party I thank her again & again!! I also enjoyed how she talked you thru what she was doing each step of the way & showed you how she was applying products so you even got a bit of a makeup application lesson as she attended to each aspect of the face. I would recommend her ten times over for all of your makeup artistry needs!! Amy rocks!!!!

Amy was a dream to work with. I had my trial back in January, she was really helpful on tips to prepare my skin for the big day. She arrived for my wedding makeup early, and was very efficient with the application. I received so many compliments, most notably, was how natural my make up looked. She's also very pleasant and was quick to respond with any questions I had leading up to the wedding.

I have never before been so incredibly amazed at someone's work on my makeup! Amy took the little direction I gave her and was able to capture exactly what I was looking for and even added her own style to it which made it more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. She was amazing to work with and made everyone in my bridal party so happy. She is a MUST HAVE on your wedding day...or for any other function!!! I will certainly be using her again on other occasions I have in Wilmington!! :)

Only some of my bridesmaids opted to do make-up, but those that skipped it, were disappointed that they did! Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful make-up! If you are hoping to look like the most gorgeous version of yourself, Amy is your gal!

I had my make-up done twice by another make-up artist in town, paid for 2 trials, but still wasn't happy. I googled make-up artist Wilmington, NC and was lucky enough to find Amy! After seeing her website I knew I had to have her do my make-up. As a trial to see how she did, I had her do my make-up for my bachelorette party. I have never looked better!! After that, I had her do my rehearsal dinner and my wedding day. She is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! By the way, I've worked in salons and spas for 10 years and as I've said, she is the best I've ever seen. I will reccommend her to anyone getting married. I will use her again the next chance I get! :-)

I couldn't be happier that I chose Amy to do my makeup and the makeup for my bridesmaids for my wedding! I gave her free rein to do whatever the girls asked and they all looked stunning. Every single guest (and those who have seen pictures) have commented on how beautiful we all looked. My hairdresser (Marco from Bellezza Salon who I also loved) enjoyed working with her the day of since she is super nice and he loved how she was very efficient. No quality sacrificed but very speedy. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face. Can't wait to see her again when we do our after wedding shoot this spring. Thanks you Amy!!!!!

Amy did the makeup for my entire bridal party and everybody was stunning! Amy arrived early and ready to go! With her sweet and calm demeanor, Amy helped us all get through a really stressful day and made us look better than ever! It was such a relief to have everybody's makeup finished ahead of schedule so we could take more pictures and drink more champagne!

Amy uses the best makeup and knows how to contour your face to make you look your absolute best! And she rocks at eyes/lashes! For the first time in my life, my lashes stayed on well into the 3 am hour and I never smudged one bit! The only thing I even touched up the whole night was my lipstick!

Amy is the best of the best and I highly recommend her! I'll be calling Amy for christmas parties, baby showers and any other event I can think of!

Amy did makeup for my Bridesmaids and my Mother for my 10.12.13 Wedding. I'm super critical and I couldn't be happier with the job she did. All of my maids looked gorgeous! Some of them don't wear makeup very often and Amy was able to give them a very natural yet polished look. I loved it! As for my Mother, she NEVER wears makeup and has tricky skin. I've never seen her look as pretty as she did after Amy did her makeup! She was glowing all night!

Thank you so much!

Amy is absolutely amazing at what she does. I went in for a trial with her for my wedding makeup..and realized before she started even doing my makeup I already had fallen in love with her personality. Shes so kind and so personable right off the bat..and then..her TALENT comes into play! She made me feel and look like a supermodel. She was so on point, prepared and organized. She is a true professional. She listened to what I liked and was trying to achieve..then applied her skills and experience to make me look flawless. (if only I had her around every day) As someone looking to go into hair and makeup I look up to Amy for how successful and knowledgable she is. Thank you for making my big day everything I could of ever dreamed of!!

Amazing work!! Having planned a destination wedding and being unfamiliar with the area, I was very nervous and skeptical about which vendors to market and hire. It took me over 6 months to find a competent Make-up Artist, and someone who followed back up with me. With slim pickings, I contacted about half a dozen Make-up Artists in the area and became very discouraged, many who did not immediately get back to me, some who returned calls but then did not execute the follow up. I became so flustered, worried, and unhappy that I was seconds away from flying someone out from my hometown to do my bridal party's make-up. Thankfully, I FOUND AMY, she was the solution to my problem! Amy was attentive, prompt, followed up ALWAYS with any questions I had prior to my wedding day. Not only was she all of the above, but she did an absolutely fantastic job with every single one of my bridesmaids, there were 11 girls total, they all looked beautiful, and were ALL VERY PLEASED! A lot of the girls wanted their foundation airbrushed, and she was on point with that as well, beautiful! As a bride, and being very busy the morning of your wedding, the last thing you need is someone who needs your attention, and Amy was very self-sufficient, she made everything with 11 bridesmaids transition super smoothly. Amy uses great product lines too. For anyone reading this review, I am a high maintenance type of girl, and not the easiest to please when it comes to fashion and beauty, so please if you need a Make-up Artist, Amy is your go-to girl!

My experience with Amy reflects the comments of the previous reviews. Amy's work is nothing short of perfection. She is a talented make up artist that knows her craft inside and out. Three days before my wedding, I had a bike accident that left me with a cut and bruise on my chin. Amy did such a wonderful job, nobody......... and I mean nobody could tell where the bruise was. I would recommend Amy to anyone looking for her services. She is professional, on time, very courteous, and her skill level exceeds excellent.

Amy was unbelievable! I've had my makeup professionally done a couple of times and was not thrilled but Amy listened to my fears and assured me that she'd take care of me. And, boy did she!! She was quick to respond to any emails and showed up right on time on the day of the wedding. She was also very particular about her craft and spent extra care applying false lashes and making sure everything blended well. She did such a great job that part way through the reception I thought they'd fallen off because I couldn't feel them! They were applied so well and looked pretty natural. The makeup was also not heavy and felt really good on my skin. My makeup was absolutely flawless and she made me look and feel like a model. Excellent talent and service all around. I'd highly recommend her!!

Amy was always quick and professional when responding to my emails. She came to the Brooklyn Arts Center to do our make up on the day of the wedding. She made all the girls look their best and feel extra special! My husband told me, "You look like a princess!" and I know Amy's make up was part of that :)

Amy was wonderful! I highly recommend her if you want to look absolutely stunning on your wedding day!! My bridesmaids were all gorgeous as well, but Amy made sure I still stood out from them. Amy an incredibly experienced make up artist, and uses her knowledge base to ensure that you will look stunning and that your photographs will look great. She ensured that she used a particular foundation that wouldn't cause my face to look lighter than my body in photographs, as most foundations typically do; this was all due to her great experience in make up. Like I said, if you want to look absolutely beautiful on your wedding day and want your photographs to look as beautiful, you NEED to hire Amy for your wedding.

Heather is also a great hair stylist, and Amy recommends her. Heather made all my girls hair look beautiful, and the styles stayed! We danced all night, and our hair looked the same as it did when we had the ceremony. I highly recommend her!

I very rarely leave a 5 star review for ANYTHING, but Amy really is top-notch. I will echo another reviewer's sentiment and say that you truly will get that red-carpet/celebrity experience on your Big Day with Amy's beautiful makeup. She will listen to exactly what YOU want, and will not try to convince you to go with any look you are not comfortable with. Many makeup artists I encountered during my search tried to force a certain aesthetic on me, and it was a complete turn off. Amy is professional, responsive, knowledgeable and experienced. Many wedding vendors you will never think twice about again once your wedding is over, but Amy will certainly be my go-to girl for any future special events. Thank you for making me and my bridal party look and feel beautiful!

Amy is an absolute pleasure to work with. I had asked her to do my make-up for my engagement photos and she could not have been any more flexible and accommodating. My appointment was scheduled for 10am and I was concerned because we were not taking our photos until 3pm, but not only did my make up last all day, it still looked incredibly flawless when I went to bed that evening- I hated to wash my face that night because it looked so perfect! I had also asked her to bring false eyelashes since they photograph much nicer, and they looked natural but gave my eyes that extra pop in all of our pictures. Overall, you are definitely missing out if you do not get to work with Amy!

For any bride out there that is wanting to look like a model in a bridal magazine, Amy is totally the way to go. Her knowledge and expertise on the subject of beauty and makeup and contouring and everything under the sun are so impressive that I am actually going to go take a class with her where she shows you how she does her magic. She made me look the absolute BEST i have ever looked in my life. I didnt see what it looked like till after she was finished and when I looked in the mirror I about pooped in my pants. The artistry and detail and perfection she puts into her work will not only make you glow, but it also made me look younger. My eyes werent wrinkled, i had no bags, and even with all the makeup i had on, my skin still glowed and popped. I even had a huge burn mark on my face when i went to go get my bridal portraits done and she blended it right in to where you couldnt even see it.. Any flaws are completely erased. If only I could have her in my pocket everyday :(. Even all my bridesmaids were so impressed with her work I had people contacting me afterwards about her. But seriously on the real 20 years of doing bridals shows in her work and if you want a sweet lady that will make you look however you want (I printed a picture) Amy should be your #1 pick BY FAR. Her talent is exceptional!!!!!

Amy is BY FAR the best makeup artist in town! I am a photographer and have worked with her on numerous occasions and she knocks it out of the park every single time! I always make sure to use her every chance I get and strongly recommend her to every client I have. She knows how to enhance her client's beauty in a way that looks very natural and not out of character for them (think back to all those times you've been to a makeup counter and walk away thinking "this doesn't even look like me"). You will absolutely love how she makes you look and feel! Not only that, but she is a wonderful, caring, down to earth FUN person to be around as well. She is extremely knowledgeable in skin care and makeup and knows how to do makeup specifically for being photographed too. It does make a huge difference in photographs when done correctly vs when it is not done correctly and she keeps that in mind. Amy's makeup will leave you looking and feeling absolutely beautiful in person AND in pictures on your special day and you will have a blast in the process!!

I have been to many different make-up artists, but Amy is truly an "ARTIST" in every sense of the word. Her demeanor and overall energy is calming yet fun - what a great combination! Her knowledge is overwhelming of products and application - YOU will love her and wish she could be with you every day as your personal beauty assistant!! Amy is the best - you will not regret your choice for the most important day in your life :-)

I am a wardrobe stylist and fashion writer who also hosts events for a living. There is a lot of pressure to look my best whether for photo shoots, covering events as press or hosting my own style events.

I've worked with a lot of makeup artist and Amy is simply the best. No matter how stressful my day is, in the time I got to sit with Amy for my makeup, her comforting and calm demeanor never fails to calm my nerves. She is an amazing talent who instinctively knows how to bring our your best features, always highlighting your natural beauty. And if you are in need of a little more drama, period makeup, etc., she's on it.

Between her experience, talent and knowledge of skincare (she was the first person to spot the telltale signs of skin cancer on the side of my face), there is noone else I trust like Amy to make me look my very best.

I first met Amy when she did our makeup for my friends wedding. Our makeup was flawless from 9 am to 2 am! When I got engaged I went straight to her for lessons on how to do my own make up for showers and my pictures turned out amazing! She did my bridal portraits and I have never felt as beautiful as I did at that time! When my wedding day came she did my make up, my moms and my bridesmaids. Amy came to us and was early! (always makes a bride feel good!) Amy was calm, friendly, and a perfect addition to our pre-wedding party! Once again our makeup was flawless and we all looked amazing!

Don't you hate to read a review that seems too good to be true? I mean, C'MON, a rating of FIVE stars in EVERY category??!!

Well, Amy Kennison IS TOO GOOD to be true. Amy was our beauty consultant for our daughter's most special day --- her wedding. Our daughter, at 27, hadn't quite shed her tomboy looks and attitude. She knew the very basics of makeup and styling. She was terrified to "look like a clown". I contacted Amy, after meeting her (and having a MAC makeup consultation with her) at BELK'S Department store in Wilmington, NC. I never contacted anyone else.

Amy arrived the morning of the wedding --- full of reassurance for our Jordan's wedding day heebie-jeebies and confident to be able to deliver a 'natural and elegant' bridal look. Amy brought top-of-the-line products and her own presence and style was enough to relax our bride's anxieties. She was the calm inside the morning's storms of activities and appointments.

Jordan was photographed by one of Wilmington's Best --- BellaRose Photography -- and her portraits and photographs are amazing. Amy's talent lasted through a hectic day of photo shoots, a 1 1/2 hour mass and a 6 hour reception.

Amy Kennison can do it all! Such an amazing and talented professional!!!

Love love love Amy and her makeup! Amy did so well on my makeup for all my wedding events that my best friend used her for her wedding. Amy can give you any look you are going for and made me look my very best and feel like a model. She gave me a bit of a sexy look for my engagement pictures then a classic look for the wedding portraits and day and both looks were fabulous! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist!

I am a hairstylist and I have worked with Amy on several photo shoots and weddings, she has been my number one go to-girl for make up, or if i needed application for a certain event or just tips on the latest techniques. Amy is the only make up artist I refer my clients, I know that when I refer my clients to her she will give them her undivided attention as well as knowledge in the beauty industry. Her transformations are amazing and her print work proves that! Amy is the most talented make up artist in this area by far!

Amy did my makeup for my wedding as well as my mothers and most of my bridesmaids! She was awesome!! Prior to the big day she asked me to send her a few pictures of make-up styles that i liked. One the day of she was punctual, efficient and very flexible. At the last minute a couple bridesmaids decided that they did want their make-up done and she was able to squeeze them in. I couldn't say enough great things about Amy! I highly recommend her to any bride!
