Amber did makeup for me and my bridal party at my wedding and she did a fantastic job! None of us really wear makeup in general and she did an awesome job doing our makeup while making sure we still looked like ourselves! I had no idea what I was looking for during the trial run, and she did a great job with basically no guidance from me. I asked her to make one adjustment for the wedding once I figured out what I actually wanted and she understood me perfectly. All of the bridesmaids looked beautiful as well, and she was really chilled out and easygoing (I didn't realize in advance how important this would be on my wedding day). I would absolutely recommend her!! 


Amber did my makeup for my wedding and it was perfect!! I wanted a natural look since I don't wear makeup usually (and therefore had no idea what I was doing), and she made me look like what I envisioned for my special day. She made sure that I felt comfortable and beautiful, and made suggestions without pushing. Her attitude is great, and very calming the morning of a huge day! Definitely would recommend working with Amber for any special event.


I had to let you know just how great you are!! Thank you for being so amazing and talented!!


Amber did my makeup for a work party and she did an amazing job!! Really listened to what I wanted and made me look gorgeous!! She’s very talented.


Couldn't have picked a better makeup artist for my wedding than Smudge, Amber and Sarah are amazing! So sweet & funny. I knew immediately after my trial that I wanted them for my big day. I told Amber I wanted a natural look.. nude lips, smokey eyes and little bit of lashes- she nailed it! I still looked like myself and the makeup lasted from 10am until after midnight. She did my makeup & lashes, also my bridesmaid and my maid of honor. Highly Recommended!!!!


Let’s just say I get very nervous when other people besides Smudge do my makeup!! Always makes me feel so beautiful!!


Amber did my makeup for my wedding and did an amazing job!!!! Amber takes her time and makes sure you are comfortable and like what she does. I never use makeup and she made me feel super confident on my wedding night!!!


Amber did my makeup for a portrait photoshoot and she made me feel so beautiful! Her attentiveness to detail, as well as matching my skin color and theme to the colors she used was phenomenal! I couldn't have done a better job if I had done it myself! THANK YOU Amber, for your impeccable detail and attentiveness to my skin type, as well as my shoot theme!!!!


Amber and her team are absolutely amazing! They did the make up for my wedding and it was perfect and lasted from 10am to midnight, even through some tears. She listened to what I wanted and was so friendly to work with. Amber is trustworthy, punctual and so detail oriented. She will make sure you are happy and look perfect for your special day. They are so talented and I would highly recommend Smudge Makeup for any occasion. 


Amber was beyond helpful and professional. Smudge did an outstanding job with my hair and makeup! I found Smudge via Thumbtack. They traveled not only from CT to NJ for my trial, but also traveled to VT for my wedding day. They did a fabulous job with my bridal makeup and hair, as well as the bridal party. Make up was beyond beautiful and she did a fabulous job on all different skin types from my oily complexion, to the older skin types as well. Hair was beautiful from updos to blowouts. She offered airbrush and eyelashes at no extra expense. Even our photographer complemented how the makeup turned out, saying how she made us all a dolled up better version of ourselves, which is a huge compliment. She was able to capture the hodgepodge of ideas that I had and turned my face into perfection. She is great with her responsiveness, and always in communication, I never felt like I couldn't get a hold of her. She's extremely organized, bringing her own makeup lighting, chair, & tools. 10/10 would recommend, They helped make my wedding day, and I couldn't imagine it without them. 


Amber did an amazing job for our wedding! The trial run was super fun and it's the best time to pinpoint what you want before the big day. She is super professional. On the day of, she did the makeup for my bridal party and made us look flawless for the whole day (wedding was from 4-11pm). Look no further.


the meaning behind the name

In my native culture smudging is a ceremony that is done in order to purify the body, aura, energy, and space. I have the same concept with my clients. My clients will always leave feeling refreshed and confident. Smudge is all about making everyone feel beautiful and confident in their own skin. It is very important to me that my clients know how beautiful they are without the makeup and that I am simply enhancing their features, not changing them.
