Amanda began her experience with camera ready makeup when she competed in the Miss Virginia (America) pageant where she held several local preliminary titles from 2004-2007. Amanda placed in the Top Ten at Miss Virginia and traveled around the state making appearances where appearance was crucial on the go. In 2009 Amanda competed in the Miss Virginia (USA) pageant where she placed as second runner up. Upon retiring from pageantry Amanda and her mother began 3 Miss Virginia preliminary pageants that required her contestants to be camera ready at all times and perform on stage. Each year Amanda provided makeup services for her contestants which allowed her to gain experience on the importance and knowledge of makeup application for important events.
In 2009 Amanda began providing onsite services for friends and family who didn't want to spend the day in a salon for special events and weddings. When it became obvious that there was a need for onsite makeup artistry Amanda created Makeup by Ravishing to provide high quality makeup services for special events like weddings, school dances, reunions and head shot photography. Amanda also continued to offer makeup services for contestants in the Miss Virginia pageant with several of her clients winning preliminary awards and placing in the Top Ten and Top Five and her former contestant and client Chinah Helmandollar was selected as Miss Virginia.
