Since her entry into the modeling industry in 2003, Amanda Mutchie (known to her friends as “Mandie,” even though she begrudgingly admits to be named after Barry Manliow’s hit “Mandy”) has come a long way. She has been published internationally multiple times, amassed an impressive, varied, and constantly growing portfolio.
Print modeling led to spokesmodeling, hosting, and some acting in commercials and featured extra work in web series programs. She has also had the privilege of traveling to glamorous places, such as Paris (France, not Texas), New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Gary, Indiana.
She has also used her experience in the modeling industry, and the amazing collaborations therein, to hone her skill as an internationally-published makeup artist with celebrity experience. Recently, she has seen the need to help others feel empowered by makeup, and has created an academy – Mandie’s Makeup Mastery, which is designed to help busy professionals and moms learn how to do quick looks for work, date night, or even on-camera. She also has compiled her favorite products into a site you can find here, has a couple books in the works, and through her podcasting, would love to develop a career in public speaking to teach people about her passions- motivation (personal development), muscles, meals, and makeup!
Throughout the years as a model and makeup artist, she was also teaching… Middle school Math (in English and French), Social Studies (in English and French), English (only in English), High School French (only in French), and Journalism, to be exact! She also has completed most of her coursework for the Master’s in Urban Education Degree at Mt. Mary College, and just has her thesis to complete.
Mandie has also turned her love for fitness, nutrition, and helping people into another career as a Beachbody Coach!
This website is an attempt to capture Mandie’s multitude of talents, interests, and passions and put them all in one place, mostly so that whenever Mandie responds to a casting, she can send future clients to one place, rather than sending them several links!
