Hi, I'm Amber
Do you remember that feeling you get when you put on your favourite shade of lipstick, the perfect outfit or have the best hair day without even trying? I know I do, and that's one of the driving factors behind Blended By Amber.
I have loved all things beauty since I was a little girl playing "spa" with my grandmother. The feeling I received from connecting with her, bringing out her beautifully natural features and helping her connect with herself on a deeper level is why I created Blended By Amber. I am truly honored to be able to share such intimate rituals with my clients and help empower them to embrace all that they are by bridging the gap between inner healing and beauty rituals.
My hair and makeup services offer a mindful approach that allow us to become fully present and approach beauty services from a side of self love. As a Reiki practitioner and sound healer, I believe true beauty starts from the inside out, so if you feel called to re-align with your beauty rituals and self, I have the space for you. Let's create some magic together.
Blended By Amber recognizes and gives gratitude to the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations in which our business is based.

Mindful Beauty Session
Being mindful is a practice of dropping into the current moment and allowing stillness to come through. So often we put on our makeup and use it as a way to mask our imperfections, change our unwanted features due to years of conditioning from the beauty industry to be "perfect" all the time. That is completely unrealistic and we should celebrate our unique features and focus on what makes us feel good, not what we feel society wants us to be.
Each session starts with a guided meditation to drop into our space, a quick 15-30 minute reiki energy clearing, skincare prep, and a makeup application or lesson of your choice. By focusing on WHY we are engaging in beauty rituals, we can help to heal our inner being and create more play and creativity within our beauty rituals.
1 Hr Session (15 min reiki) $150
2 Hr Session (30 min reiki) $220
