Amber Griffin

Make-up artist, Amber Griffin, has worked with some of Hollywoodʼs top celebrities including Jeff Bridges, Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Heather Graham, Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra and many others. She has also created unforgettable looks for many of the music industryʼs most well known performers such as Motley Crue, James Blunt, Slash, Smashing Pumpkins, Godsmack, Incubus and Linkin Park. Her work has been featured all over the world: from the red carpet of the Academy Awards, Emmys and Grammys; billboard campaigns overlooking the Sunset Strip and Times Square; magazines ranging from Time and People to Rolling Stone, to numerous music videos and gallery exhibitions. Amberʼs work is known for its elegance with a rock-n-roll edge.

While studying fashion design in Dallas, Texas, Amber discovered her true calling when at her first fashion show, the makeup artist failed to arrive and Amber was forced to get the models “runway ready” herself. It wasnʼt long before she permanently traded fabric for brushes and made her way to Hollywood. After fine-tuning her skills through formal training, she quickly became a much sought after make-up artist. Amber has maintained a high degree of repeat clients, as much for her upbeat personality as her professionalism.

Whether itʼs natural beauty, menʼs grooming, fashion, body painting, sketchbook or canvas; Amberʼs mission is to “blur the line between art and make-up” revealing to her clients the innate beauty she sees in them and in life- a beauty that is more than skin deep.
