Hi there, I'm Amber! I spent over 20 years as a ballet dancer and completed my last year at 28 years old. Taking my love for stage makeup with me, I went on to learn how to properly use a makeup brush with MAC Cosmetics in NYC and continued to work and train with MAC for 4 years. Gaining practice, understanding and professional skills during that time, I learned how to apply professional makeup on all ranges of sex, age and race from a "No Makeup Makeup" look to Beauty, Bridal, Glamour, Fashion, Art, Airbrush and all the way to full Body Painting. Over 15 years later, I am now a published & international professional makeup artist currently located in Boston's North Shore in Massachusetts.
As a skilled professional, I use carefully chosen and tested makeup for HD and high resolution cameras for the commercial, digital and film production industries. I've spent years using and analyzing different formulas and critiquing them on different monitors from different lenses. I love making people look like their best selves without it looking like makeup when it's not supposed to. It has always been one of the most fun parts of my job!
My work has been seen on CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox Sports, ESPN, FOX, PBS, CNN, Vox, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Bloomberg Television, The Guardian News, BBC News, Business Insider, The Independent, The Boston Globe and BuzzFeed.
Some of the commercial clients I have worked for are Pfizer, VELCRO Brand, Toyota, Bain Capital, Costar Group, JP Pest Services, PAX East, WordStream, New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Planet Fitness, Regina Pizzeria, Red Bull, Harvard, MIT, Dartmouth, Waters Corporation, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Goldwell, KMS Hair, Lane Bryant, Southwest Airlines, Pier 1 Imports, Chili's, CAPCOM, Alzheimer's Association, Mass General Hospital, Signature Healthcare, Medscape, Dana-Farber, Boston Children's Hospital, Newton-Wellesley Hospital and many more.
I have also had the privilege of working closely with Ayanna Pressley, Solidad O'Brien, Holly Sonders, McKayla Maroney, Brandi Maxiell of Basketball Wives, Jason Maxiell, David Ortiz, Mookie Betts, James Develin, James White, Daryl Johnston, Joe Buck for the 2018 World Series in Boston, Indigo Girls and more.
I was recognized by Expertise.com as one of the top Boston Makeup Artists and have also been featured in the Beautiful Bride issue of British VOGUE Magazine. I have been a teacher for CMC Makeup School for the Beauty, Bridal, Fashion and Body Paint classes and spent 2 years as the resident makeup artist for the Good Day Show on Fox 4 in Dallas.
As I spend most of my time in the commercial fields, I also have a broad range of experience in many other mediums that include: Makeup Art, Character Makeup, Fashion, Editorial, Advertorial, Publication, Portraiture, Jewelry, Swimsuit/Fit, Vintage/Period, Beauty, Male Grooming, Sci-Fi/Comic, Body Painting, Tattoo Covers and more.
