Amaterasu is powerful. Sasuke just had to secretly, when Kaguya was busy with Naruto, cast it on her. She would have burned to hell.

But why didn't Sasuke use Amaterasu on Kaguya?

    Amaterasu exists from chakra > she is very well known to absorb chakra?

Given she be the first to wield chakra, Kaguya can absorb any technique; including the Amaterasu

As the first person to ever wield chakra, she can absorb any technique that she encounters

However, towards the beginning of Naruto's and Sasuke's battle with Kaguya, Sasuke did use the Amaterasu on Kaguya to distract her

To create an opening, Naruto convinced Sasuke to attack Kaguya with Amaterasu, which allowed him to get close to her and use his Sexy: Reverse Harem Technique. The technique was successful in distracting Kaguya long enough for Naruto to strike her

You can see this occurrence on Youtube


It's because like the Rinnegan, the dojutsu on her forehead, the Rinne-Sharingan, can absorb all forms of ninjutsu. Even if they used Amaterasu after some distracting attack, since she can activate her Rinne-Sharingan and BYAKUGAN, with nearly 360 degrees of vision, it'd make it pointless. Byakugan is shown to have almost no weak/blind spots, making suprise/diversionary attacks completely useless on Byakugan users, unless they have recently awakened it.
