Where do I begin? Thank you so much for being there for me on my wedding day. You are truly an incredible artist and individual. Not only did you make me feel the most gorgeous I have ever felt, you have a very calming presence. Everyone in the bridal party bridal party was happy about their make up and kept talking of how you worked wonders. When I returned to work all of my coworkers commented on how great my make was and I owe it all to you. Thanks again & the next time I'm in Wilmington I will contact you for a few lessons.

Sincerely,
Taneia Lamar

Where do I begin? Thank you so much for being there for me on my wedding day. You are truly an incredible artist and individual. Not only did you make me feel the most gorgeous I have ever felt, you have a very calming presence. Everyone in the bridal party bridal party was happy about their make up and kept talking of how you worked wonders. When I returned to work all of my coworkers commented on how great my make was and I owe it all to you. Thanks again & the next time I'm in Wilmington I will contact you for a few lessons.

Sincerely,

Amy was WONDERFUL to work with from start to finish. She made the trial so easy as I do not typically wear much make up or know much about it. She listened to every request and made me feel amazing. She worked so well with me and my bridal party and had a very calming presence on the wedding day! She knows her stuff and was able to take in to consideration everyone's needs. I have never felt more beautiful and that is thanks to her!

Amy is truly the best makeup professional and artist!! I was absolutely amazed at her skill and technique for both my bridal portraits and wedding day. She was very familiar and understanding with a brides hectic schedule and wow'ed any onlooker watching the process. Her technique with eyeliner/shadow/contouring is nothing short of celebrity status. I am so incredibly happy that i had the privilege to have her for my wedding, I have never seen anyone's makeup even come close! thank you so much!

Amy was amazing and so easy to work with. I met with her for my bridal trial and everyone loved my makeup. I do not usually wear a lot of makeup and she made it look natural. The day of my wedding I liked my makeup even more. It lasted the whole wedding even in the heat. Amy also did my bridesmaids and moms makeup and everyone raved about that. She was so easy to work with and made getting ready fun. Thank you so much for making my day special.

Amy deserves thanks for making my mom, mother-in-law, and I look fabulous for my wedding this past Saturday! It was truly a pleasure and we were all amazed at the staying power even with all our dancing and drinking and eating, haha. She made small changes when asked and the finished product was terrific. We had a great time and I appreciate her sharing her talents to have us looking our best!

I was online looking for someone in the Wilmington area that does wedding makeup and I stumbled on Amy's website and I was immediately sold! I contacted her right away to schedule an appointment and she was quick to respond and set something up. She was always so nice, sweet and professional. I ended up knowing a few other girls who used her as well and raved about her. As soon as I saw all of her pictures though I could see the amazing work she creates and how she brings out women's natural beauty and just enhances it. It truly is a gift! I felt so pretty on my wedding day thanks to Amy. Her set up is very pretty and she makes you feel very comfortable too during the whole process. I didn't even have to tell her much of what I wanted because I trusted and knew whatever she did it would turn out beautifully. I would definitely recommend any bride or anyone that is wanting there makeup done for a special event to Amy, she is seriously amazing!

I felt so honored to have Amy do my wedding makeup! It was one of the things I looked forward to the most because I knew it would be just awesome based on every picture and word of mouth I had encountered. She has a talent for adapting to each person and making them look their best that I can't imagine is easy to do. She made over myself, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother and I must say we all looked fabulous. I believe she deserves to be artist to the stars as she is simply amazing.

Amy is absolutely amazing. She has so much compassion for makeup and is awesome at what she does. Her kindness and humbleness kept me calm on my wedding day and I trusted her 110% to make everyone beautiful and she exceeded my expectations of makeup beyond what I ever could have imagined. She was so easy to work with and was the least stressful part of planning my big day. Everyone was beautiful and my girls still talk about how amazing Amy was. She made such an impression, two of my bridesmaids contacted her about doing their wedding. Thank you Amy for being so kind, humbled, beautiful, and easy to work with. You made my day a lot less stressful. You are amazing.
