Amber doing makeup in chair

"Amber has done my makeup several times and she is incredible-a true artist! She is so creative and I have received so many compliments when she has done my makeup. I totally trust her to do what she envisions but she is very easy to talk to and would definitely take in suggestions. She really knows how to use color! I am always glowing when I leave her. I live on the East coast so I will miss her but Seattle has gained an incredible artist!" Baltimore, MD

"Amber is personable, professional, and aims to please! I requested some creativity/funk in my updo to match my personality. Amber was able to manage with my short hair. It’s the best my hair has ever looked for a formal event! Lots of compliments that night. Thank you for a job well done ... wishing I lived in the Seattle area so Shining Light Beauty Design could be my “go to” for all events!"

"Amber did a great job - came to my home, and did a makeup application (while there were two kids present!) Would highly recommend her."

"Amber did an amazing job on the hair and makeup in my sister's wedding! She did hair and makeup on 7 of us, to include the bride, mother of the bride, both maids of honor, and mother of the groom. I loved having her there, and will absolutely book her for my next event!"

"I went to Amber to use her services to have my makeup done. I explained that it was important to me not to have a heavy, overdone look. I appreciated her communicable understanding. Amber achieved this with her soft hand; enhancing my features thus allowing my natural beauty to shine through."

We hired Amber to do my makeup and hair for our elopement last week. She did a wonderful job! Communicating and planning the day was very easy and she remained very flexible with our changing plans. Amber was on time, professional and well prepared. It was important to her that I was happy with my makeup and hair and she would have done whatever was necessary for me to look the way I wanted on my special day. Amber was very gentle when applying the makeup and while curling my hair. She made sure my look could withstand the rain outside, which it did. She went above and beyond what we had asked of her. So grateful for her!

Amber did my daughter's hair and makeup for her Senior photos at the end of August and both turned out fabulous! (We just received the photos and her hair and makeup photographed beautifully.) Amber was also attentive to the look my daughter wanted - more natural and not overly made up. We found her to be responsive and professional but also so much fun! We would use Amber's services again, for sure. Thank you, Amber, for making my daughter's day so special!

Make up for Senior Pictures! We were referred to Amber’s artistry when we scheduled my daughter’s senior picture session. My daughter wanted a natural look for her pictures, recognizable, but sort of the “best version” of her. As a high school student, my daughter wears minimal makeup, so she wanted a natural look. Amber listened to everything she said and delivered in spades! She custom created a lip color that was perfect for her skin tone, she talked through options and gave my daughter choices that helped her feel comfortable and confident. The make up looked fresh for hours- it still looked amazing 8 hours later! I highly recommend Amber- she really is an artist!

Amber did my hair & makeup for my wedding and also did my MOH and bridesmaids makeup. We looked beautiful!

I had a trial run for my services about a month and a half prior to my wedding (it had to be postpones due to Covid-19), and she was very open to ideas and great at explaining what she was doing. My MOH and bridesmaid were unable to do a trial run since they decided last minute to get their makeup done, but their makeup came out perfect first try!

Amber has a wide selection of pallets and also face makeup shades. My MOH and I are very pale and my bridesmaid has beautiful deep skin, and Amber matched us all perfectly. She also helped install my clip-in extensions and blended them with my natural hair.

Not only did she do great with our services, she also was great at communicating with me! She would always respond within 24hrs (if not sooner). Amber is such a sweet person and if I ever need her for further services I would absolutely book her again. I highly recommend Amber for your wedding, event, or photoshoot!

Amber did such a great job for our wedding. Her attention to detail is top notch. Her personality is even better. Not only did we all end up looking absolutely gorgeous, but we had so much fun getting ready with her. She made our day even better and we were so happy to have her take part in our special day (and to rope her in to our pre-wedding shenanigans). Thank you so much Amber!!

Amber is really great and friendly. She is so easy to communicate with and very prompt in responding to any of my queries. I also love the quality of the make up since it really lasted all day. Her hands are so light and she is very careful with both the make up and my hair. She really made my wedding day extra special. I really recommend Amber and will have her again for any future events.

Loved having Amber do my hair and make up for my boudoir session. Not only did she do an AMAZING job, but she is adorable and was so easy to talk to.

Amber is an amazing artist! She listens well to what the client wants and executes in a timely and efficient manner. I absolutely love her makeup skills!! I highly recommend!

I do my hair and wear makeup probably once every 6 months so when I was told that my husband had an upcoming holiday party, I panicked. Luckily Amber was highly recommended. Amber came to my house with everything she could ever need (even her own chair) and proceeded to perform a work of magic. When she asked what I wanted, I explained in the most vague and indecisive way, “I don’t know. Something natural looking but glammed up. Nothing too heavy but.... you know, whatever.” She was able to decipher that and give me exactly what I pictured and wanted. What I couldn’t vocalize, she was still able to uncover and proceed to make me look my best. I had no stress getting ready for this party, and felt amazing meeting all these new people. I felt great, looked great, and both hair and makeup lasted all afternoon and night. I am beyond happy with my decision to book Amber and place my trust in her to get me party ready. She did fantastic and was professional, talented and very fairly priced when compared to others.
If you’re on the fence, just book! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Amber was simply incredible. She did my hair and makeup for a family photo shoot. I was stunned and how gorgeous I looked. She color matched me perfectly and my hair was gorgeous. She is so personable and sweet. It was like spending time with a good friend while I got my hair and makeup done. I will definitely be using her services when I need makeup and hair done again. I just wish I could have her do my makeup and hair daily- ha ha. She even ended before our scheduled time so I could help my husband wrangle the kids before the photo shoot. I love how she offers mobile services and came to me! And lastly, she showed up right on time even though it was an early Saturday at 7am. You won’t be sorry! Get on her schedule now!!!
