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 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 is the best! She is truly a pro at what she does. My wedding makeup looked fantastic, lasted all day and night in the hot humid weather, and looked great in photos. My bridesmaids' makeup looked amazing as well. Amy is so kind and open to any ideas you have, and very responsive via text/email! Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to get makeup for any occasion!

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 is phenomenal at what she does! My makeup looked perfect for my wedding day. I got my makeup done at 11 in the morning and it stayed flawless til I went to bed that night! She even gave me a baggie with extra lip stick to reapply throughout the day. She is very thoughtful!!!! Thank you 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!

I absolutely loved working / meeting your closest friends and family! I adore your mom who is gorgeous and i can totally see where your beauty comes from:)
I am truly honored you chose me for your wedding day, I had no idea you had worked with celebrity artists for television so It is a huge compliment!

Clients like you keep me going, you are the reason I love what i do:)
I wish you and your husband the best!
