    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!

    Great experience
    It was so great to have my makeup done y Amy. She is so welcoming and made me feel so comfortable the day of my wedding. I was nervous but she was very encouraging. She was also very knowledgeable with her stuff! She was also very receptive to the look I wanted. She truly made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. I had a few blemished and she covered them al up! The make up stood on all day! She was so sweet, kind, and professional. If you're looking for someone to not add to the stress of what will be preparing and anticipating your wedding and you want someone who is kind and professional Amy is your gal!

    Amazing Makeup Trial
    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!

    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.

  • Nura K. Jul 14, 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!

    Amy was very thoughtful, knowledgeable, and kind. The make up trial was comforting and she knew exactly what to do to make me feel like a beautiful future bride. I look forward working with her on my wedding day and would recommend her for anyone!
    Amy M. Jul 15, 2015

    Thank you so much Amanda, I can't wait to work with you again!

  • Gayle C. Jul 9, 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!
    Amy M. Dec 28, 2016

    Thank you for your beautiful review dear Gayle. It was a pleasure to do your makeup!

  • Rachel H. May 6, 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!
    Amy M. Jul 7, 2015

    Rachel, thank you! It was a pleasure working with you and your guests and I am so glad I was able to give you the look desired! All the best,

    I had a wonderful experience with my trial makeup for my wedding. Amy is very welcoming and listens to what you want your results to look like. She also makes helpful recommendations and walks you through the process. Just excellent!
    Amy M. Jul 7, 2015

    Christine, thank you for your thoughts and I would love to be of service in future, if ever you need makeup services. Wishing you a beautiful and happy life!

    Amy Miranda did a WONDERFUL job! First of all, her prices are significantly cheaper than any wedding makeup artists. It was $150 for me (bride- trial and wedding day), and only $50 per bridesmaid. 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! -Natalie S.

    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!
    Amy M. Aug 19, 2013

    Crystal, the pleasure was all mine! I can't wait to do your makeup on your wedding day!

    Amy was delightful to work with. I have never had my makeu done by anyone, I heard about airbrush and wasn't sure how it would turn out. I had my makeup trial for my Wedding with Amy and it was AMAZING!!!! She makes you feel comfortable and give you the exact look you are looking for. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone who wants their makeup done beautifully and correctly!
    Amy M. Aug 19, 2013

    Jamie, I am so glad you liked the airbrush experience.. It was fun, wasn't it? I can't wait to do your wedding day makeup!!

    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, tons of high end make up, 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 artist I have worked with. Make up lasted and looked flawless for hours on end, even in the hot humid VA summer weather! WONDERFUL!!!!

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Prices are on an individual basis and vary slightly from one customer to another.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We exchange emails, we discuss prices, we set up an appointment for a trial run, we then leave it to the client to think and decide on her own, no pressure whatsoever is given to the client, no rush, but decision should be made sometime before the wedding, so that the day is booked for them.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have taken several makeup courses with great makeup artists, and sephora and a major high end department store!!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When the stars and moons aligned and came into a certain configuration, the time was right for me and I took a leap of faith and with time, I came to where I stand now.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Bridal makeup is the most common type of work I do but also giving makeup lessons and teaching you the secrets of makeup is what I love doing.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Each and every one of my jobs is a success story! When I do a trial run, I discuss with my client the arrival and completion time, everything is set in the contract, there are no surprises. I never arrive late and always finish on time or before. Better be early than late, right?
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
One important piece of advice I would give you is to not go to those extremely high or extremely low priced individuals. Find a good makeup artist, and go with your gut. Money should not be the only factor that you should take into considerations. My rates are in between the two, and you get more than what you pay for with me. All products are high end and brushes very clean and soft, i take my time and deliver as promised. Each person gets a consultation and l know how to listen to you and give you my input. If you look at my website, it is not done by a professional website designer, and does not have edited photos from photographers. All photos are taken by me during real life events!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I think a lot of people these days call themselves makeup artist. Being a good Makeup artist takes time and practice, as well as being kind, compassionate, and understanding. One needs to learn to listen to the bride and see what it is she reallyl wants.
