These are genuine testimonials that I have received over the years.
This is my second time using Amy. I enjoy working with her because she knows how to bring out your natural beauty and not cover it up like other artists have done with me in the past. I don’t like to have a ton of products on my face to the point where my skin feels like its suffocating. I like to look at myself in the mirror after a makeup session and still recognize my face! Amy even requested to see my dress to decide which colors to use. My family and friends absolutely love how she transformed them and the makeup lasted all night long! Amy is so friendly and she will gladly work with any request you may have. I asked her to airbrush my chest to match my neck and face 🙂 cant wait to contact her for a third time! by Amanda S, April 29, 2017
Amy did a fantastic job for the makeup trial! She listened closely to what I was looking for (I don’t wear a lot of makeup usually so I wanted to keep more of a natural look) and did a great job of making me look beautiful. I can’t wait to see how it turns out on the big day! by Christina W., Wedding on April 30, 2017
I was beyond happy with my wedding makeup as well as all my bridesmaids. I was also happy with how calm and easy Amy was to work with. She ended up doing makeup on 11 girls and did so in a quick fashion. Everyone had different skin tones and she was able to adapt to each one and inquired what level of makeup each person really wanted. I would recommend Amy Miranda to any bride and her group! Very well priced for superior services as well. Thanks again Amy! by Jody H., July 2016
I was kind of skeptical going to Amy because I’m really picky about my makeup but she did such as amazing job. I got so many compliments! Along with that, she was so nice and highlighted my features. She’s so sweet it honestly blew my mind because she genuinely cares about you, and wants to keep you satisfied! definitely going back! by Maryam A., April 2016
I used Amy for my wedding makeup on March 26, 2016 and have nothing but positive things to say. My initial makeup artist, cancelled on me in November, which left me incredibly stressed and worried I wouldn’t find another makeup artist. It actually worked out for the best because then I got to work with Amy! She responded to my initial request right away and fit me in for a trial. She listened to everything I wanted and was able to give me a great look, without making me look/feel like I was wearing too much makeup. On the day of, she arrived early, brought all necessary supplies and did the makeup for myself, 3 of my bridesmaids and my mom. Everyone looked stunning and had their own look they felt confident in. I would recommend Amy to anyone as she is truly a professional and so incredibly nice! by Jessica S., March 2016
Amy Miranda is an OUTSTANDING makeup artist! After doing some research and reading great reviews, I hired Amy to do my make-up for my wedding in April 2016. I had a small intimate second wedding (no wedding party) – so I truly appreciated Amy’s dedication to coming up with the best style for my important day. Since I do not wear that much makeup, I am clueless when it comes to make-up application. So, I had three make-up trial sessions at Amy’s studio. I wanted to compare the different styles. During the sessions, Amy sat down with me to discuss the look I was interesting in as well as looking at different pictures. We talked about my wedding and the color scheme. She was very patient and listened to all my requests. Amy is very personable, professional and knows how to bring out the natural beauty in her clients. She takes her time and talks to you during the whole make-up application process – explaining each and every step. It is evident by her work that she loves what she does and she loves working with people! I was amazed and extremely pleased with my transformation (I wish Amy could do my make-up everyday…LOL). I had the make-up trials around 11am and I could not believe it stayed on all day and night (until I took it off around 11pm). I finally figured what I wanted for my wedding day and Amy was AWESOME!!! My make-up was OUTSTANDING and I never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. I am so happy that I took my time to decide the look I wanted because it was worth it. Amy did not disappoint. If you are looking for a highly-rated, highly-qualified true makeup artist – no need to look further. Book Amy Miranda! You will NOT be disappointed! One other important point to make – her pricing is VERY reasonable. Sandra C. January 2016
I saw Amy Miranda for a make-up consultation as I was interested in updating my look and wanted some direction regarding the best products for my skin. First, the lesson was two hours (and at a very reasonable price!) and that allowed for plenty of time to discuss recommended tools and products as well as the opportunity for me to apply them myself. Amy has a wealth of information and experience to offer her clients and I learned a lot. She sent me follow-up emails with product information and links which was very helpful as there was no way I could remember everything she shared with me during my appointment. And furthermore, she remains available for any further questions her clients may have. I was very happy to work with Amy and highly recommend her to others. Debra C. November 2015
Make up – It turned very good and it’s was a good experience. All my friends and family loved it too. I liked Amy’s work. Anu S., October 2015
Amy is an amazing make up artist and truly loves what she does! She takes her time with her application and it really does stay on throughout the ceremony and reception! I accidentally went to bed without washing my face (a big no no and I know Amy would not approve) however, when I woke up the next morning my make up was still 90% in place! Not that I recommend leaving on your make up but I just wanted to share how well the application holds up as I know this is important to most brides. I highly recommend doing a trial with her beforehand. She is very detailed oriented and organized–she will take photos and notes to remember exactly what she did during your trial and will either duplicate it for your on your wedding day or provide recommendations to enhance your look even more for your big day. She also pays attention to what each person really wants–one of my bridesmaids LOVES make up so Amy did a much more “dramatic” look for her. Not over done or outshining the bride–but truly pays attention to what her customers want and what works for the skin and face. If i could afford to have my make up done everyday I would totally use Amy! But, since I can’t I will definitely keep her in mind for special occasions and recommend her to future brides! Nari K., September 2015
Amy was amazing! She did my sister and I’s makeup for my sister’s wedding. She listened to exactly what we wanted and provided us wth very patient and friendly service. She was super nice and the end result was PERFECT! She took before and after photo’s and spent time showing us the results. Her in-house makeup studio is very professional and clean. Best makeup job i have ever recieved. Would Highly recommend her. She even gave us a sample size lip color to reapply/ touch up through out the wedding day. Love her! Rebecca H., August 2015
Amy was just lovely from start to finish. She is a great combination of professional and warm. She made me feel comfortable and explained everything beautifully, and left me with some everyday makeup tips. I’m still getting compliments on my wedding makeup! Nura K., July 2015
I cannot say enough good things about Amy! She did an amazing job on my makeup for my trial, which I did the same day as my engagement shoot to kill two birds with one stone. The makeup lasted almost all day through the 90-degree heat outside – and my fake eyelashes lasted even after a 30-minute mountain hike! She was friendly, listened to what I wanted, explained what she was doing and using, was very professional and overall was someone I felt I could trust. Can’t wait to have her do my wedding makeup, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone! Gayle C., July 2015
Amy is AMAZING! I went in for a bridal trial session and she took all of my thoughts, mixed them with her professional experience and I was highly impressed with the results. I still looked like myself, just a more beautiful version that I cannot wait to show off in a few months at my wedding! Amy knows her stuff, she has tons of makeup and really listens to your opinions during the application process. I was 100% satisfied with my trial, and recommend this to anyone so that Amy can get full vision of what you expect on your big day. I can’t wait to work with Amy again in the fall, and after seeing my pictures – my bridesmaids sure are excited too!
Devon M., June 2015
I cannot express enough how amazing Amy was. She did my bridal makeup and 4 bridesmaid plus mother of the bride. She showed up 30 minutes early so that she could set up and be ready to go for the first appointment. The schedule went perfectly without a glitch, plus the quality of the makeup was impeccable. All of my girls were so pleased with their look, but most importantly, I felt beautiful. My groom was incredibly happy as well because he felt that despite having bridal makeup on that is necessary for the photos, I still looked like “me”, which meant that Amy captured who I am and allowed me to look the best version of myself on my wedding day. I am very grateful for the amazing service Amy provided to me and will recommend her to all brides! by Marissa Z., May 2015
Amy was a delight to work with. She was incredibly conscious and sensitive to my time and schedule. Before entering her lovely little studio, we chatted about my needs, her style, and her ideas as to what she would like to do to give me the perfect look for my outdoor Engagement photo shoot. Amy walked me through all of her products and explained why she chose to use them and where I may be able to purchase them for myself.
The experience was, overall, lovely. She was kind, attentive, and a real artist. by Brittany D., April 2015
I want to say a big thank you to Amy. I am going through chemotherapy and have lost most of eyebrows and lashes. I wanted to find someone who could help me with my makeup now that my face has changed quite a bit. Amy was very kind and had many great ideas. She taught me how to make my eyes, skin and face look so much better. Amy was encouraging and just what I needed to look and feel better during chemotherapy. by Aimee P., February 2015
I found Amy online when I was searching one for someone to give me a make-up lesson as a birthday present for myself:) My experience with Amy far surpassed my expectations. She has a great deal of expertise and passion for working with make-up. She went above and beyond to tailor my lesson to exactly meet my needs. We had a great time working together and I love the results.
What an awesome experience! by Jane H., January 2015
Most of the time, “you get what you paid for,” rings true. Except for Amy. She is truly, truly talented and applies just incredibly beautiful makeup. She knows she can charge more, but she prefers to remain accessible to everyone. Her website and blog are amazing, and her passion comes through with every face. We did two trials, because I love makeup and wear quite a bit regularly so I wanted to make sure it was extra special for the wedding day. She listened to exactly what I wanted and created a look that made me feel better than I’ve ever felt. Ya ya, beauty comes from within, but it doesn’t hurt on the outside either! Book Amy, and all her high end products and airbrush machine, for half or a third of the price that less talented artists with sub-par products are charging. You won’t be disappointed. by Brooke P., November 2014
Amy Miranda did a fabulous job with my makeup! I went to her house with my maid of honor to do a trial-run today, 6 months before my wedding. She spent an hour and a half doing my makeup expertly and walking me through the entire process. She uses high quality products and has a huge selection of wonderful products that are safe and flawless on the skin. I loved the way I looked and the attention to detail. I cannot wait for her to do my makeup for my wedding next year and would highly recommend her! On the day of the wedding she will come to my hotel, and do makeup for all of my bridesmaids. Her prices are extremely reasonable for this area and for the quality of service she provides. by Marissa Z., November 2014
I would highly recommend Amy. She is fantastic to work with, professional, prompt in communications and knowledgeable in her field. I had my trial about 6 months before the big day. Amy spent a lot of time understanding my needs and as soon as I described my dress and wedding colors she knew immediately the look I was envisioning in my head.On the big day Amy arrived early (we started at 6am!) and was set up ready to go to do my makeup as well as 4 of my bridesmaids’. I had my girls decide what they wanted to do with their makeup. They were all so pleased with their makeup and even though each one was different the “look” was cohesive. My day-of makeup was even better than the trial. Amy made my time in the chair easy and comfortable. My goal for the morning was to relax and enjoy the moment and she definitely helped make that happen! by Rachel H., May 2014

Amy is terrific! This review is based on my makeup trial with her today. She is a true pro and pays great attention to detail. I went in not knowing quite what I wanted and really let her take the reins for the trial. She did an amazing job, the transformation was truly incredible. Amy was also very open to my critique after wearing the makeup for the day. After a while I decided I wanted a few adjustments to the look for my big day and she was so open to hearing my preferences after wearing the makeup. I can’t wait to have Amy do my wedding in September on my wedding day. Her prices are reasonable and she’s extremely pleasant to be around. She uses high quality makeup as well, you can barely feel like you have anything one. I highly recommend using Amy for any of your makeup needs. by Jackey S., February 2014
I cannot say enough good things about working with Amy! I found Amy via Wedding Wire for my November 2013 wedding, and after reading so many good things about her work, was definitely interested in having her do my wedding makeup.
Once I read about her prices, I thought, “this must be too good to be true!” I am happy to say it is not! She does incredibly high quality work, with excellent products, in an expeditious manner. She is kind, personable, and professional. She was flexible to travel from her home to do makeup for myself, my mother, and my aunt, very early on a Sunday morning before our wedding. Honestly, look no further for a makeup artist! by Lauren B., January 2014
I was looking for a make up artist for my May 2014 wedding and found Amy’s website. I read so much good reviews and I decided to email her. She replied right away and gave me a price quote. Her price is so affordable!I had my bridal trial yesterday and the results were great! She makes you feel comfortable, listens to you and gives you the exact look you are looking for. She’s amazing! Her studio is clean, so organized and she’s using high end make up line that lasted the whole day. I will definitely recommend her! by Queenee B., December 2013
I found Amy’s website very randomly, while looking for a makeup artist for my sister’s wedding, for the bride, mother of the bride, and the rest of the bridesmaids. I saw good reviews so we called her for a quote and trial. Amy really worked with our budget and size of the party, and the bridal trial results were better than we anticipated! Yesterday, November the 16th, was the day of the wedding. Not only did the bride look flawless, but so did the rest of the party, including myself! Our makeup never smeared or melted away. We loved that she created each of our looks based on our individual preferences/style, varied facial features and our skin tones. She made sure each of us looked like a flawless version of ourselves. My mother was also extremely happy with her makeup. Unlike many artists, when it comes to older women, they rarely do a good job. Amy is tasteful, and creates the makeup look to make sure it compliments this age group. My mother received so many compliments as well. Amy herself is the sweetest lady, so easy to work with, and very good at what she does. She uses only high-end products, and her application technique is very clean. I can’t wait until we have to use Amy’s services again, she is worth every penny and more. by Janine H., November 2013
Amy is wonderful! I had a trial with her this morning where we looked through some books together, saw some of my ideas on pinterest, looked at pictures of her clients, and really got to talk about what I was looking for.
The amount, quality, and variety of makeup she has is amazing. She’s done so much research so that every mascara, foundation, lipstick, is the best brand out there. We got to experiment with a few different makeup looks. She never made me feel rushed, even though my trial went a lot longer than anticipated. I am very excited for Amy to do my makeup on my wedding day! (wedding makeup review
Brooke P., September 2013 (trial run makeup review)
Amy Miranda did a WONDERFUL job! First of all, her prices are significantly cheaper than any wedding makeup artists. She listens very well during the trial to ensure that you look perfect for your wedding day. She used airbrush and fake eyelashes for no extra charge, whereas most other artists charge much extra for both of those. On my wedding day she showed up 15 minutes early, which saved a lot of stress for me in worrying that everything would go according to plan.If you want to look beautiful and be stress free on your wedding day for a GREAT price, go with Amy Miranda Makeup! by Natalie S., September 2013
I visited Amy for my trial run and had a wonderful time. Amy is not only kind, but eager to help you create the look you are envisioning. The experience was equally fun and relaxing. My makeup was applied around 2:30 in the afternoon and held up beautifully until I took it off around 10pm.
I am very excited for Amy to do my makeup for my wedding day and would absolutely recommend her to anyone! by Crystal S., August 2013
I had my first make up artist back out at the last minute and lucked out into finding Amy. She was amazing! KNOWS her STUFF! Excellent skills, great with colors and shading! Made my mom and me look amazing! Best I have ever looked! 🙂 Have had my make up done few a few weddings before and had another trial previous. Amy is the best makeup artist I have worked with. Make up lasted and looked flawless for hours on end, even in the hot humid VA summer weather! WONDERFUL!!!! by Suzy P., July 2013
Amy was AMAZING! She was available last minute for my makeup and my mothers makeup the day of my wedding. She is truly talented at what she does and has a gift at making you look your most beautiful. She does age appropriate makeup, it was light, fresh and not caked on.
I loved my makeup the day of my wedding and was surprised that it lasted the whole day even in the 90+ degree heat!She was prompt and so calm the day of. Also her prices are phenomenal compared to many of the other vendors I researched. I just adore her and will definitely recommend her to friends and family. by India T., July 2013
Amy is the most wonderful and talented make up artist in the Nova/DC area! She did my wedding day make-up, all of my bridesmaids and my mother! She is professional, responsive and will make you look so beautiful the day of! Her rates are incredibly low compared to all the other make up artists I spoke to. She uses high quality make up and brings a make-up chair and a ridiculous amount of make-up the day of. I wanted someone who is skilled in eye make-up; my wedding was an evening wedding and my makeup looked flawless in the photos! My make-up stayed on without any touch ups the entire night and everyone raved about it! I am so glad I choose Amy, she is talented and wonderful and she has the nicest personality! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a truly talented make-up artist in the area who is affordable too! by Maryam A., March 2013
Amy Miranda is a wonder! Her warm personality with kindness and talent all form to give you the ultimate make-up experience.You can tell she truly loves what she does and cares about your comfort and satisfaction with her work. The products she uses are high quality and long lasting. She made my moms birthday surprise of make-up and photo shoot a wonderful experience which we both will never forget! by Juliana N., February 2013
Amy was great!! She did my make-up, the bride and groom mothers and some of the bridesmaids and everyone looked great! She is very professional and easy to work with. She is willing to change and tweak anything you don’t like and she has the most absurd amount of high quality make-up I have ever seen. Not to mention that her pricing is very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Amy to future brides! by Nadine C., November 2012
Amy is very professional and easy to work with. Her prices were the best value for the excellent service she provided.She is a true artist and is a perfectionist when it comes to getting the details just right. It was so nice to be in good hands on my wedding day.She did an amazing job with my bridesmaids as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Amy and would recommend her to anyone. I hope to work with her again! by Caroline C., 2011
I am so happy that I found Amy Miranda only three weeks before my wedding. I was going to do my make-up myself, but I am thrilled that I changed my mind at the last minute. Amy Miranda has great communication skills, was quick to respond/answer any questions that I had, and she was efficient in her work. She arrived at the hotel ahead of schedule and got to work. I was amazed with her results!My mom is still raving about how fabulous she made my eyes look. She did an equally great job with my bridesmaids. I highly recommend her services! Additionally, the value for the cost was incredible – she is very affordable and does a phenomenal job! Ashley, 2010
Amy is great! I really enjoyed meeting her and having her do makeup for me and my sister on my wedding day. She spent a lot of time with me and listened to what I wanted and really tried to compliment my personal style and style and time of day of the wedding. I wanted a very natural look and she achieved it beautifully. She is very knowledgeable about makeup and colors and steered me in the right direction, but allowed me to make choices, which I appreciated. Amy is also skilled in working with oily skin and problem skin. I have oily skin and was worried about looking shiny halfway through my wedding day, but she used a great product that worked marvelously. I didn’t even need to touch up! My sister has a little trouble with her skin and Amy used products that made her look beautiful! She also offered to supply us with touch-up makeup, but didn’t pressure us to buy. She came on time and very well prepared for both of our appointments and made us feel completely at ease and comfortable. I would recommend her to any bride in search of an affordable and professional makeup artist! by Jaekha, 2010
