We got married at Castle Farms on December 30, 2019. Amanda and Karissa did my (bride’s) hair and makeup, plus 4 bridesmaids’ hair. They arrived promptly (even though Amanda had to deal with a minor windshield malfunction and 8 inches of fresh ...
snow!) and worked quickly. We finished getting ready with plenty of time to get to the venue, and they listened to exactly what each of us asked for and really did well. My makeup stayed on all night and my hair only lost a few strands (though Karissa made sure we had extra bobby pins to fix any problems throughout the evening). They’re also both very sweet and talented professionals, and they were very straightforward with pricing which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend working with them!

res of what I wanted, but I had read somewhere that she would provide me some options. What I ended up with at first was really bad, I was very unhappy. She did her best to fix it, but short of washing my face and starting over (which there wasn't time for), there was only so much that could be done. The final result was just so-so. I expected my makeup to look the most beautiful it possibly could, but that just wasn't the case. Now that my wedding has passed and I look back on the photos, my makeup was clearly melting and smudging by the end of the night (and it was not a particularly hot or sweaty day). Again, I'm sorry to leave this review because Amanda is a very nice person- but in my case, what I received didn't measure up to the glowing reviews on this page, unfortunately. My advice- be prepared with photos of exactly what you want.

Not only did the entire bridal party's makeup look amazing in person, but it photographed perfectly and lasted throughout the entire night. From consultation to the actual day of the wedding, she made me feel at ease and would go above and beyond for any bride. I recommend her 100%.

Amanda is truly a make-up artist in every sense of the phrase. Each stroke of the eye pencil or dab of lip gloss is a well thought out addition to an overall portrait to make you look and feel your best on your big day.
I work in an art ga...
llery on the weekends and noticed that Amanda puts the same amount of technique, time and dedication into her client that typically goes into creating a beautiful painting.
I didn't really have a vision, but she just instinctively knew how to make me look and feel. Not only did she do an excellent job, she has a sense of humor and is easily able to make even the most nervous bride feel comfortable and relaxed on her big day.
So if you're considering places in the Northern Michigan area, your search should be finished! And if you are at all concerned about price, just know that Amanda is absolutely worth every penny and you won't regret splurging just a little on a true professional.

Last year I got married in Petoskey, MI, my hometown. When it came time to decide on who I wanted to do my make-up for my special day there was no question about who I was going to. Amanda Buckingham was the only person I knew would take the ti...
me and have the passion to make me look exactly how I wanted for my wedding.
I have to say that when I arrived for my trial, Amanda did everything exactly how I had asked, and I looked beautiful. However, after I had gone to try my dress on with my make up I realized that I had to tone down what I had originally wanted to compliment my romantic dress. Amanda didn't skip a beat. She willingly accommodated my changes, and did so without blinking an eye. It was calming knowing that I didn't have to worry about the changes. The day of the wedding could not have gone better. Amanda worked her magic and created the new look I wanted effortlessly. She even sat there and listened to me practice my vows for later that day. I cannot thank her enough for making me look absolutely perfect on the most important day of my life so far.
If you are looking for someone who has such a passion and love for what they do, do not look any further than Amanda. Her skills are matched by her kindness and you will be immensely happy that you chose her to complete your look for your special day.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Amanda! First, my make-up was BEAUTIFUL! I never wear make-up, and was nervous I would look fake and not like myself. Amanda did a fantastic job making it look natural and flawless and still like me. It ...
photographed beautifully and lasted 12+ hours on a hot July day. I totally trusted her judgement, and it was spot on! Amanda was also an amazing presence on the morning of my wedding. She was friendly, fun, and calm - it was like having another friend there getting ready with me! One of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning was hiring Amanda as my make-up artist!

Am I allowed to say that my makeup for my wedding MADE my whole wedding??? Probably not, but I will say it anyway, because IT DID. I was an out of town bride, and an intense one with high expectations. I wanted make up, but didn't want to look ...
made up. I wanted natural but beautiful and fake lashes but not that you can tell, (and so on.) Not a small order. Amanda didn't flinch and literally was like "Great!" and happily and quickly made me and my bridal party look like SUPERMODELS. Literally one boyfriend got in trouble for drooling over his own (already gorgeous) girlfriend/bridesmaid. ("You don't always think I'm this pretty?") Amanda was so many things -- she was a calm, kind, AWESOME addition to the morning of the wedding, she was a committed service provider whose chief goals were to do a great job and to create MY vision, and she was SO talented! literally looking in the mirror gave me so much confidence and excitement (for a previously nervy bride) and I am already looking forward to our photos! She was so great that as she was leaving I was (1) sad that she had to do and (2) already scheduling a makeup lesson. Do yourselves a favor and book early. <3

d out who had done her make up because it was the best I had ever seen, absolutely flawless. She told me amanda was wonderful to work with and really took the time to get all the details right. I am very excited to work with her for my own wedding!
