Amber Malik Makeup
Bringing a bride’s vision of how she wants to be seen on her most special day, to life.
With over 20 years of experience in Bridal Makeup Artistry, I have had the opportunity to work with various brides, from different cultures, all with their own unique vision of how they want to look for their big day. This job has taken me to different countries, and allowed me to become such a crucial part of someone’s special day. I work together with my brides to come up with the perfect vision of their Makeup look based on their features, outfits, jewelry, and if they have a theme for their wedding. I specialize in South Asian Bridal Makeup, so we get to create different looks for all the events that take place, which is always so amazing. I have the opportunity to create flawless looks that are both traditional and timeless for a ceremony, to trendy and bold for a reception – giving my brides the best of both worlds. I am obsessed with my brides not only looking amazing, but feeling amazing when they see themselves in the mirror for the first time as a bride. Because of this, I ensure I’m available to them until they are ready to leave for their ceremony. When a bride books her Bridal Makeup with me, they have the comfort in knowing I will be there, by their side the entire time.
Aside from Bridal Makeup, I enjoy creating bold makeup looks on myself to share on my social media. This helps me to not only practice different techniques, but it allows me to keep up-to-date on the latest makeup trends. Makeup has been a passion for me for as long as I can remember, and creating various looks on myself has really helped showcase my talents, continue to learn, and step out of my comfort zone. Combined with my experience and passion, my makeup brushes welcome every bride to come sit in my chair.

FAQ – Makeup Artist
What is a bridal makeup trial?
A bridal makeup trial is where we meet for the first time, chat and go over styles/looks you’ve chosen putting them to the test. You should do your research before coming to a bridal makeup trial by finding several photos of looks you want to try. At the bridal makeup trial, your makeup artist will test out the looks to see whether you like it or not. This meeting can take up to a couple hours since it is the time to really get to know your makeup artist. As well as for the makeup artist to get to know you. Your wedding day is a very important day and you want to look as beautiful as possible, so the makeup artist needs to get to know what you like and what you feel confident in.
How long before the wedding should I book a bridal makeup trial?
You should book the bridal makeup trial around 4-8 weeks before your wedding. Before you book your bridal makeup trial, make sure to have the details of your wedding planned and finalized. This means that you know what your wedding dress looks like, you know the theme of your wedding and the colours of the flowers. This is important because different looks math different colours in your theme. As well as, your bridal gown make a difference as certain makeup looks match better with certain necklines.
Do makeup artists travel to the client for their wedding day?
Most makeup artists offer mobile services meaning they do travel to the client for their wedding day. Check with your makeup artist to see how far they are willing to travel on that day. Some makeup artists even offer mobile services for destination weddings or wedding outside of their city. Although, almost every makeup artist will demand travel fees as is it expensive to travel. Make sure to do your research on different makeup artists to see who is closest or has travel fees that is within your budget. All in all, find a makeup artist that makes you feel beautiful and stress-free.
