Amber: I’m really into color right now, so I’m trying to use it in many ways– with my art and clothes!
Kristen: So tell us, what’s your artistry all about and what do you do?
Amber: I am a makeup artist and body painter. What I like most is the control and freedom to create energy or emotion with color and textures. I’m really into experimenting with different supplies to create new looks. I love when people have to look twice at my work.
Kristen: Did you always want to be an artist?
Amber: Yes! Even now though I still feel like I’m finding my style. I have so many different visuals and I like to let them guide me through my canvas. Art is a journey– a process.
Kristen: Gloss or Matte?
Kristen: Favorite Quote?

Amber: My diversity. I can do hair, makeup & body painting. I’m very versatile and I’m able to utilize all of my talent.
Kristen: How do you consistently find clients/projects?
Amber: I go to places in the city and network like twice a week. With each project I do, people reach out to me wanting to do more collaborations. So it becomes a cycle.

Kristen: Best advice you have for upcoming makeup artist?
Amber: Get some friends and do their makeup. Make sure to get good photos and then start building a portfolio. Start networking and going to different events. The more you go out…the more people you’ll meet! Then you can start building a clientele. Also, wherever you go make sure your face looks best! A good face will impress people. That’s truly an important factor to makeup artistry.
Kristen: Are you accepting new clients? How can we book you?
