When selecting vendors for my wedding, it did not occur to me just how important the people doing my hair and make-up would be: they are are with you during the most exciting moments of anticipation and help set the stage for the rest of the evening.

Amanda could not have been more amazing: calm, funny, humble, and flexible. I felt like myself, simply enhanced by make-up. My look lasted all evening, even through outdoor photos in the snow! She was also able to work with skin sensitivities of family members. And I cannot imagine spending those few hours before my first look with my now-husband with anyone else.

Amanda is a TOP makeup artist in New England. Whenever I have received a compliment on my makeup it without fail had always been makeup by Amanda McCarthy! Every time she has done my makeup for a fashion show or an editorial shoot, I feel remarkable and natural. Recently, Amanda collaborated with a photographer to produce an amazing editorial spread for me. She does not just have a standard formula for makeup. She is a true artist in the sense that she understands different face shapes, eyes shapes, lips, and makes sure to match the right type of makeup to both skin type and shade of skin. This also translates to when she applies her natural air brush spray tans! She makes sure that the shade of the spray is good for the skin tone. My spray tan lasted for so long and I felt AMAZING with it. I have had spray tans before, but my spray tan by Amanda McCarthy was by far superior to them all. She came to my apartment in Boston, set everything up, and charged an affordable rate to do the spray. She is so incredibly pleasant and has a perfect sense of humor. Whether she is doing makeup for a bridal party or for 5+ models in a row, she does not lose energy, makes sure to clean every brush so thoroughly and uses the TOP BRANDED makeup product on every client. Bravo, Amanda! You are amazing.”

Amanda is very passionate and knowledgeable about her art of beauty and skin care! I went for a consultation on changing up my routine and how to deal with “aging” skin. Her salon is relaxing, she answered all of my questions, and she put me on the right track without making me feel like I had to drop hundreds of dollars on skin care. Thank you so much!”
