Amber Griffin Artistry

The Makeup Artist for your Beautiful Memories.

Let the beauty inside you be what defines you.
— Amber Griffin

My name is Amber Griffin, lead makeup artist for Amber Makeup Design and Amber Griffin Artistry.  I consider myself incredibly lucky to spend the last 15 years doing what I love to do...creating an artful experience for my clients bringing their innate beauty outward and showing the world!  

I love enhancing your natural beauty by customizing everything from foundation and lipstick to various sculpting colors uniquely tailored for you.  Be it Evening/Glamor looks or Natural No-Makeup looks, I strive to bring out your unique style to make you feel like the Star You Are!

Born in a small town in West Texas, I started my makeup career at the age of six when I accidentally discovered my Grandmother’s bright pink lipstick kept in a sparkly gold case.  Then there was her glorious makeup drawer filled with a rainbow of eyeshadows and blushes...Oh the makeovers that ensued!  

Years later, after studying fine art and fashion (and being the adventurous soul that I am) packed everything I owned into my little green Honda Civic and drove to Hollywood.  I started my professional career in 2000 after graduating from the prestigious Make Up Designory in Los Angeles, California.  I have worked on jobs ranging from books, magazines, film and TV to music videos and red carpet events seen all over the world.  I have all kinds of fun stories; remind me to tell you later about the night I spend in the desert with pyrotechnics and panthers!

As a Texas native, I have returned to my roots making Austin my new home.  With over 15 years of experience in the wide range of Beauty & Fashion, I am focusing my skills into weddings because I believe that weddings are the NEW form of fashion and beauty.  Wedding makeup has a rich history and a bright future.  I want You to feel like the Star that you are on your special day.  

I believe that everyone has a unique beauty within them and I absolutely love bringing that out.  I believe that makeup is a form of expression that enhances your inner Beauty & Style.  “Let the beauty inside you be what defines you.”

And leave the rest to me...
