Amanda DeSouza blends quality work and professionalism as well as she will blend your highlight. With nearly a decade of makeup experience to draw from, Ms. DeSouza creates a variety of looks, ranging from a subtle everyday, to wild night out, to fantasy/horror characters beyond your wildest dreams. I booked Ms. DeSouza for my wedding day and she exceeded expectations, going above and beyond to create a one-of-a kind look that I'll cherish in wedding photos for years to come.
Amanda has worked with our nonprofit FACES 4 Autism in the past as a face painter at community events, and as a singer, dancer and even emcee. She has volunteered on many occasions. Her tenacity, talent, professionalism and ability to connect with families and children with autism has been a blessing to our organization. Brava, Amanda!
When choosing someone to do my makeup, as well as the makeup for my bridal party, I wanted someone I could rely on in all aspects on one of the biggest days of my life. Amanda was not only a constant source of professionalism, but on a time-driven day she brought a sense of calm and got the job done and done well. She knows her craft exceptionally well.
Amanda is the Best! She's professional and has a great eye for her craft. She not only tackled the beauty make-up that I needed; but, she was able to create a great canvas on my hubs (who dislikes wearing makeup) for his Beetlejuice & Billy Butcherson costumes. I can't wait to see what Amanda does next & also can't wait for my next appointment with her.
As a costume designer I always enjoy working with Amanda! She is always ready, willing and able to jump right into my projects (no matter how late I bring her on lol). She not only brings her vast imagination to the work we do, but also a great level of professionalism and charm, making her an excellent collaborator and a wonderful spirit to have amongst the chaos of backstage. I will always enjoy working with her for she adds depth to the world we create on the stage. Amanda's makeup designs are truly the icing on the cake!
Amanda DeSouza is one of the most enthusiastic and talented makeup artists I have had the pleasure to work with. From plays to model shoots to haunted trails, she has always given her all. Her ability to render in 3-D is wonderful and convincing, while her glamour makeup is flawless. I would recommend to anyone looking for quality and professionalism.
I once worked with Amanda for a photoshoot that required body painting and she was so professional and really quick, but that didn't take away from her quality work. She got along with everyone great and was even on location for touch ups. Amanda is an amazing artist with a personality to match.
The first time I saw Amanda's work, I knew I had to shoot with her, and she didn't disappoint. As a model and makeup artist, I was amazed at what she brought to the table. She was prepared and professional, but also incredibly talented and creative. I would gladly recommend her for any artistic project or important event, and know that it will be better than expectations with her there. I look forward to our next project as well, as I know each will be better than the last.
