Andrea did my make up for my wedding and I never felt more beautiful in my entire life. She sprinkled my daughters with light makeup and they felt like princesses. Andrea was fun and professional. Thank you Andrea for making my day amazing, magical and of course beautiful! You are the best, my dear friend
Andrea was amazing! She provided me with a detailed time line of the day and was very responsive with any questions or concerns I had! I would for sure recommend her to any bride! She is definitely an artist, showed her a picture of very natural makeup (which is her speciality) and I and all my bridesmaids were very pleased with there outcome!
I have known Andrea for several years now and when I needed to decide who was going to help create my dream look for my wedding – I knew exactly who I wanted to book! I could not have been more impressed! Andrea was so attentive to detail and created a look by fusing several ideas I had for my wedding day. She not only made me feel special but my bridesmaids (4 total) and my Mom. Everyone looked stunning. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone who wanted to look their best for any occasion! I am trying to figure out what event I have coming up soon that I can create a look with Andrea again. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
I don’t wear make up on a routine basis. Andrea took her time, gave me options to determine my comfort level, and did a fabulous job of making me look beautiful without feeling uncomfortable. I could not have asked for a better experience
A big Thank You to Andrea of Shades of Blush Studio for providing Excellent service for my sister’s wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional and very understanding artist. She truly takes the time to connect and explain every aspect of what she’s doing and what products are used. I will definitely be using her again.
Andrea did my makeup for my August 13, 2016 wedding and she was amazing! Everything from the makeup trial, her flexibility, level of responsiveness and overall talent made for a great experience. Not to mention she is just so nice :). It was literally the hottest day of the year that we got married (outdoor ceremony and pictures) and my makeup lasted the whole day and night. I didn’t have to touch up at all. She knew exactly the right look for me and it couldn’t have looked any better. I had so many compliments on how well done my makeup was, as well as my bridal party makeup. Everyone said it was the best makeup job they’ve seen at a wedding. Andrea brought her assistant Kara who helped out and she was awesome too! Both did a great job and I highly recommend Shades of Blush to anyone looking for a makeup artist! Cannot say enough great things!
Andrea was so great to work with and she did an amazing job! I got the airbrush makeup and absolutely loved it! It looked so natural and lasted all day and night! It felt like I wasn’t even wearing any makeup. And the false lashes were the perfect finishing touch. Thank you Andrea for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!
We were very lucky to have Andrea doing our look for my sisters wedding. She absolutely crushed it with our make up! She was very professional and knew exactly what she was doing! I couldn’t have been more in love with my make up, the best make up artist I’ve ever had! I highly recommend her for your special day!
Where do I even begin!? Andrea with Shades of Blush was AWESOME! When I contacted Andrea nearly a year before my wedding she quickly set up an agreement and didn’t even cringe at the idea of doing my make up along with my EIGHT bridesmaids. She was personable, flexible, and professional! Her work is exceptional and she achieved exactly what I asked of her.
I am a total DIY type of person, but there is one thing I could not risk DIY-ing… make-up. I can probably count the amount of times I’ve worn make-up in my life on both hands. I went with Andrea because I had several recommendations from friends and heard that she was awesome at giving brides a really “natural” look. Andrea TOTALLY delivered. She showed up to the venue EARLY to make sure she was prepared (a huge plus in my book!), she had a ton of options and products and was a true artist. Even my photographer thanked Andrea for saving her a lot of editing time since she made my skin look flawless! I felt really natural and beautiful! It poured down rain all day and I was outside for quite some time getting pictures and my make-up held up perfectly! It even survived the cake smash (which was not pretty!!) Highly recommend. Worth every penny – you won’t regret it!!
Andrea is the best!! I first found her through the Wedding Wire website. I had contacted several make-up artists that day and not only was she the quickest one to respond to my inquiry but she also offers fair prices for her services. Working with Andrea was a breeze which was great because so many parts of wedding planning were stressful. She is organized, efficient, thorough, and super talented. The day of my wedding she showed up with a plan. She set up all her supplies and was ready to go on time. We hired her for make-up for 9 girls. In order to get everyone done in the allotted time she brought along a colleague named Kara. They had a schedule, stuck to it, and were able to finish everyone 🙂 I can’t thank them enough! Our make-up looked absolutely AMAZING <3 They explained what they were doing throughout the process and made sure to customize each girls look to match their personal vision. The make-up they applied stayed on all day and looked great even in the final pictures of the night. If you’re looking for a make-up artist for any event I HIGHLY recommend Shades of Blush Studio!
Andrea was amazing!! She went above and beyond! She had us all feeling our best! I would highly recommend using her, you won’t be disappointed!
Really took the time to listen and help me figure out the perfect makeup for my big day! Very organized and prompt on time!
Andrea is so talented in the work she does. She is not only very professional but also very sweet. She did my makeup exactly how I wanted. The makeup lasted all day and felt very natural. I would recommend Andrea and her services to all my friends and family.
Andrea did my makeup for my wedding and OMG it was beautiful!! I was absolutely in love with the makeup look she created for me during the trial and it was even better on my actual wedding day. She was willing to travel over an hour to my wedding venue and was even able to squeeze in an extra bridesmaid’s makeup who changed their mind the day of. I have nothing but lovely things to say about Shades of Blush. She is amazing at what she does and is also so sweet and fun to work with! Not only did I feel absolutely beautiful, but I had so many compliments from my wedding guests saying that my makeup was flawless. If you are thinking of booking Shades of Blush for your makeup for wedding or anything at all-my advice would be to do it! 😀 😀 😀
Andrea from Shades of Blush Studio is very professional. She arrived prior to the scheduled time and quickly set up her work space. She held to her schedule for the morning but gave each girl quality time in making them beautiful. Her ability to listen to the normal make-up routine of her client and merge it with her own expert opinion of what colors would look best to enhance the client’s features and outfit are amazing! When you are done your experience with Andrea, you are left feeling like a whole new person. Your face feels light and refreshed, not “caked” with make-up. She has an amazing gift in making you feel yourself but in the very BEST form. I would recommend this business to anyone and I am looking forward to the next event that I can have her do my make-up for!
The makeup was so great, and Andrea was so professional, kind, and helpful. I don’t know a ton about makeup so I told her to do whatever she thought would look the best, and I’m really glad I trusted her. My makeup looked great (of course just the right amount of great, didn’t want to outshine the bride!) and it stayed on the whole night; which I didn’t think was possible! Recommended 110%.
I would recommend Andrea to anyone. I don’t wear alot of makeup generally, but wanted to look like a princess for a day. She is amazing! Normally, I hate having my picture taken, but thanks to her talent, for the first time ever I was not camera shy!!
Andrea did the make-up for my daughter’s wedding. She was a joy to work with – professional, on-time, and had a sunny disposition. My daughter was absolutely glowing when she finished with her. Two thumbs up!
Andrea is amazing! I was nervous at first to have my makeup done for my wedding day because I didn’t want it to be too much. But Andrea gave me an enhanced natural look. Including fake eyelashes (my favorite part!!) I had so many compliments, and felt so beautiful on my wedding day! Highly recommend to anyone!
I absolutely loved getting my makeup by Andrea! She’s so talented and she made the vision that I had in my head come to life! I highly recommend her beauty services, you will not regret it! (Client on the right – salmon dress).
Andrea was so professional and sweet when she did my makeup for a friends wedding!! She did such a great job and my makeup has never looked so good! I especially loved the fake eyelashes!! I will definitely be referring people to her that I know that need a makeup artist!! All around great experience with Andrea and I highly recommend her!!
Hanna said…Highly recommend her work! She does an AMAZING job! Definitely the one to go to for hair and makeup, couldn’t be happier with the results
Andrea is incredible! She is so sweet and makes every experience enjoyable. Both her make-up and tanning services are high quality and reasonably priced! I would recommend to anyone!
Andrea is so great to work with! I’ve worked with her on a couple weddings now and she does an amazing job every time! She really makes every girl feel special and unique and truly brings out the beauty from within! The make-up seriously lasts all day long – even through many hours of dancing! Andrea is very accommodating and I look forward to working with her again some day!
I searched and searched for the perfect MUA for my wedding, and found many talented individuals out there, but I just could not bring myself to contract with any of them. Their portfolios were just lacking something that I was looking for, but I could not put my finger on it. Finally, a month before my wedding, a friend referred me to Andrea at Shades of Blush. I was super impressed upon looking at her portfolio…super glam but still natural-looking makeup. My mom and I both set up trials with her asap, and booked her right away after seeing our beautiful transformations. Not only is Andrea an amazing makeup artist, she is very sweet, very hard-working and very punctual. She is the real deal…feel confident in booking Andrea for your wedding or event. Andrea was tasked with my bridal makeup, mother of bride, mother of groom and 4 bridesmaids. Everyone of us looked beyond gorgeous and we stayed on our timeline!
Andrea did makeup for my bridesmaids, my mom and me for my wedding. She did an awesome job and she’s also great with hair. She did great at the trial and I knew that I would be happy with the results. The makeup stood up well (got married on a super hot day outside) but I didn’t feel like I was caked with makeup either, nice and light. Andrea was also able to fit my mom in who at the last minute decided she wanted her makeup done too. Andrea was very easy to get along with and she has great taste and is skilled at what she does.
Andrea was so professional and friendly. I don’t wear much make-up, so my biggest fear on my wedding day with getting my make-up professionally done was I was going to not look like myself and look like a clown. Andrea came to my home and did a trial run and was very helpful and knowledgeable. I absolutely loved my make-up the day of my wedding, and all of my bridesmaids, who had theirs done as well, loved their looks too!
Andrea did my makeup for a friend’s wedding and she was suburb! Not only is she incredibly skilled, she is professional, timely, and has such a sweet spirit. Five stars for sure!
Andrea is a wonderful person to work with! Her team is amazing, my hair looked beautiful and it lasted the entire day!! 100% recommended! (hair by Beth Mitchell).

Andrea is not only a super kind and caring individual, she is extremely talented! I am so thankful that she was apart of my day, she made me feel so special! She was prompt and professional and took such great care of me. I don’t regularly wear too much makeup, but I wanted to be pampered for my big day and I’m so glad I did! My makeup felt light and natural and stayed fresh-looking all day! I highly recommend Shades of Blush Studio for their care, professionalism and artistic quality.
Andrea, did my make up for my wedding, and did an absolutely amazing job. I wanted to have dramatic eyelashes for the wedding to make my eyes pop!! And she nailed it! Everyone loved my makeup and I’ll be sure to recommend her to anyone who needs their makeup done whether it’s for a wedding, prom or any special event!!
Jessica said… Andrea did an amazing job on my makeup for my wedding. She also did my bridesmaids and they looked absolutely beautiful. She is so sweet and very accommodating as she did whatever I asked for or needed. I can’t wait to get my pictures back and share them with her. I would recommend her without hesitation. (Trying to find an excuse to get my makeup done again.) Thanks for everything Andrea, you’re an amazing makeup artist!!
Andrea was kind enough to do my makeup for my wedding on 7/11/15, and my experience with her couldn’t have been better. She very knowledgeable, accommodating, and was able to create the natural look that I wanted. I was impressed with her attention to detail- she even left a swab of touch-up lipstick so that everything still looked great later in the evening! On top of her artistry, Andrea was very personable and my bridesmaids and I enjoyed chatting with her during our prep time. Andrea- thanks for helping make the day special. I got a lot of compliments and will definitely recommend you to my friends who are planning weddings!
Andrea was amazing! She was so sweet and made me feel so comfortable! I felt so beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to have done my make up on my wedding day!
Andrea made this experience relaxing and enjoyable.
Andrea McCardle did our make-up for my daughter’s wedding. she did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend her. She is absolutely wonderful and very sweet.
Andrea was absolutely fantastic to work with and made every girl in the bridal party look gorgeous not to mention the bride. My friend Emily was the bride and I can’t thank Andrea enough for how gorgeous she made her look and feel and how at ease she made her feel through the whole process. The trial make up was stunning and the wedding day make up was flawless. I would recommend Andrea as well as Emily to she works with for hair to anyone on their wedding day.
Awesome! So flexible! Did a beautiful job!!!!
Andrea was amazing!! We all looked flawless and the makeup lasted throughout the whole night. I definitely recommend using Shades of Blush Studio!
Andrea did my makeup and hair for my acting headshots. I had never gotten my makeup done professionally before and was not sure what to expect. Andrea was so sweet and professional and so great to work with. I wanted a more natural and subtle look and she did just that. I was so happy with the way my photos turned out and I couldn’t have looked so good without her.
She did awesome on my make-up for my bridal shower!!
I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing their make up done.
Andrea was so nice and helpful at the Miss Lancaster County Scholarship Pageant. She took her time to make sure I was pageant-ready and gave me the best false lashes ever! I enjoyed talking to her while she was doing my hair– she made me feel so relaxed before the pageant. Her set-up was very professional and she made all of the contestants look beautiful. I hope she can do my hair and makeup again in the future!
