Ever since Austie could remember, she has wanted to work in the beauty industry. Now when we think of beauty we typically think of the outer appearance alone. However, Austie is a firm believer that it starts from within. It is a God given gift that we should never lose sight of. She started long ago doing makeup only. During those years, she had the privilege to travel, teach, and learn the true art of beauty and makeup design which has led to valuable experience in this highly competitive industry. Continuing her journey in Portland, OR; she has established a love for styling and passionately believes in its importance. There has to be great styling for there to be great makeup, and there has to be great hair and makeup for there to be great styling. Austie has a small team that is hired out if she is not available. Austie is inspired every single day by life, love, happiness and most of all her love and trust in God. She looks forward to continuing her journey, and hopes she too can inspire great things of beauty in your life.

Austie is a licensed esthetician.

Also, Austie designs custom bridal inspired hair pieces and veils. Each piece is hand made. If you are interested, please contact her or visit her etsy page at www.austieeckley.com Read less

Austie and her team were amazing! They did hair and make-up for 7 women (bride, 4 bridesmaids and 2 moms) and were incredibly efficient (since timing was a bit tight) but were still able to give each one of the ladies personal attention to meet their requests. Austie was so gracious and accommodating when one of the moms was not entirely pleased at first with her make-up and worked really well with her to meet her requests. I have been in other wedding parties where make-up artists were not entirely receptive to criticism, which makes it really difficult since not everyone can have a trial run before the big day. Everyone looked stunning! I was SO happy with my make-up and hair and Austie made me feel gorgeous on my special day!!

There are simply no words to capture how incredible Austie is. As a person, she has one of the sweetest hearts you will ever encounter and a killer sense of humor. As a hair and makeup artist, she is both incredibly skilled and incredibly professional. I'm a very no-makeup girl in my everyday life and it's a rare day when my hair isn't pulled back into a ponytail, but Austie's artistry left me feeling radiant without sacrificing my comfort or making me feel like I was no longer myself. If more of our guests were from the Portland area, I'm convinced that virtually all of the women would now be new clients of hers. Go seek Austie out for your own wedding and I know you will NOT be disappointed!!

Austie is THE BEST!!! She did our daughter's hair and makeup for our daughter's wedding and our daughter looked amazing -- beautiful yet natural! Austie and her assistant also did the hair and makeup of the girls in the wedding party. Everyone's hair and makeup looked just as fresh at the end of the reception as it did when they were first done. Not only is Austie a wonderful and talented makeup artist -- she is also one of the nicest persons I've ever met!

Austie is incredible! She understood exactly what I wanted and made me look as I had always imagined myself as a bride. Not only did the make-up look amazing, but it lasted perfectly all day and night. My entire bridal party and I LOVED having her be a part of the wedding day.

Austie was on maternity leave at the time of my wedding so my bridesmaids and I were lucky enough to work with the wonderful Destiny Taylor and Shannon Berecek. Both ladies were wonderful, easy to work with, and created fabulous results using our vague ideas of what we wanted. This was one of the best additions to our budget for the wedding, and I would happily do it all over again!

Austie is just amazing. Even before I had my makeup trial with her I knew I was in great hands! Not only is she super fun and can put you at ease, she also really knows her stuff! I also love that she's always looking for new techniques to better serve her clients. I felt absolutely stunning on my wedding day and I could tell my hubby loved the way I looked (he also kept telling me how hot I was). Thank you Austie!!

Austie is THE BEST. I took a leap of faith and went with her without a trial run. It ended up working out PERFECTLY. I am sooooo glad I went with her. She is by far the best I've ever come across. I'm Asian and was a bit nervous about having a non-Asian make-up artist (because Asian eyes are different and need a different look), but I couldn't be happier with Austie's work. I've never liked my make-up and hair so much. I don't normally wear much make-up, so I wanted a natural look. Austie did an absolutely beautiful job, making me look like myself but very polished. She also did an excellent job with the moms. LOVE HER.

Thank God for Austie. She is sweet and personable. She made myself and my bridesmaids look AMAZING. She went out of her way to help me as I rushed to get out of my house. I highly recommend Austie. I enjoyed getting my hair and makeup done in the comfort of my home but with a professional artist.

Seriously, book her.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!! Austie came to my hotel (all the way in Cannon Beach) the day of the wedding. We did not have the opportunity for a trial run, so she had to get it right the first time! Man, did she ever get it right!! She did amazing work on my hair and make-up, as well as my daughter and my mom. She heard my vision and made it happen. She took her time and got everything perfect; down to the last eyelash! Austie is amazing!

Austie made two hats for me for Derby. She is sooooo wildly creative, intuitive, and has fabulous style. One hat was a variation on a veiled piece she has done for brides, and it was really quite beautiful and elegant. Very couture. The second piece was something I let her "go wild" with, a piece she created from scratch. I didn't see it until I opened the box, and it was breathtaking. Innovative, fresh, and totally amazing. I wore it for the main Derby event and it was a hit- I can't count the number of times I was stopped for photographs or asked "Who made that hat?!" On top, there was nothing- and I mean nothing, even remotely similar to it on anyone else's head. Considering that Derby is one of the premier "hat events" in the world, that's saying a lot- Austie was able to create a piece that was highly covetable, fresh, original, and photographed like crazy. I think years from now her pieces will be amongst the top millinier's in the world, so get it while you can. Her prices are totally reasonable for the level of quality and service.

From our first e-mails to my wedding day, I could not believe my fortune in finding such a talented and personable artist. I planned my wedding from the Middle East and only first met Austie for our trial run the week of my wedding in Oregon. She immediately put me at ease and confirmed the raw talent I saw in her online portfolio. Given my inability to micro-manage from a different continent, I entrusted her with creating a hair piece that would match a photo of my vintage-y wedding dress. I nearly cried when she showed me her creation; it was the perfect compliment. The makeup and hair styling that she did for me the day of the wedding was also flawless and it made me feel special. My mother and sister were extremely happy with their makeup as well. I love her aesthetic and really enjoyed working with her. I highly recommend Austie.

I met Austie in early December 2009, after months of conversing via email, for a makeup trial. She was so warm, engaging, funny, and professional. I left the trial not only wanting Austie to do my makeup for my February 2010 wedding, but I also wanted Austie to be my friend!

Fast forward to February 20th, 2010, Austie and her colleague, Lyndsey (sp?), arrive in my hotel suite ready to get the show on the road. They were so professional with their hair and makeup done, their gear all ready, a full night's worth of sleep, and coffee drinks in tow.

I, on the other hand, was a little tired from all of the pre-wedding events, but after ten minutes with them I shortly came around. They were so much fun to have in my suite! I felt like they were a part our clan (i.e., bridesmaids, cousins, friends, and Mom). They meshed so well with everyone and demonstrated their outstanding talents on my bridal party, myself, and my Mom. We all looked gorgeous! Plus we all felt like ourselves, as, both, Austie and Lyndsey listened extremely well to all of our wishes for the day-of.

Thank you Austie and Lyndsey for being so collaborative. The two of you are truly shining stars with major talents. You are gems! I know you are going to go far in your career. I am so impressed with the reality of your work and I, of course, would highly recommend you to future clients.

Happy client,

Emily

Austie did my bridal makeup/hair and makeup for my mom for our Labor Day weekend wedding on Mt. Hood. I knew after our trial run through that she would help me look good, but I can honestly say I've never felt more beautiful in my entire life than when she made me up for the wedding. She helped me with my hair/veil for no extra charge. She was also incredibly attentive and sweet to my Mom, and went above and beyond in fashioning a stunning feather headpiece for me to wear during the reception. Austie is a pro and knows how to match makeup with your personality, features, and comfort level. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

I was a bridesmaid in two weddings that Austie did, and I have to say that she was just incredible. Even as a bridesmaid, I have never looked better in my life. I only wish I'd have known about her when I got married!Probably the best part about Austie is that she can reproduce a look that I personally requested, but she can also make you gorgeous if you have nothing in mind. The first wedding, I brought a photo of a hairstyle I liked and she made me look even better than what the photo showed. The second wedding, I just told her to work her magic, and I was not disappointed. I would use her for any special occasion and would recommend her to all my friends. You won't be disappointed!

Austie is truly gifted with so much knowledge about fashion and artistry. Whether you are someone who knows exactly what you want (and need someone to execute it perfectly) or if you are lost and need ideas and creativity, she is your girl! She was on time (early, actually) to every meeting which was comforting. She is a natural when it comes to designing a "look" and has really found her calling. She really listens to what her clients want/need and delivers just that. She is also one of those people who spoils her clients and makes you feel like a million bucks every time you meet with her, so she is perfect to have with you during a special event (like a wedding). When I got my wedding pictures back, I was SO glad I had hired her. I have never looked and felt more beautiful, and she played a HUGE part in that.

Austie is the BEST in every way !!!! My daughter and I stumbled across her while she was modeling at a local bridal show about a year and a half before my daughter's wedding. She is so personable and fun; we just immediately fell in love with her. Ironically, we went back to the same local bridal show the following year and found Austie doing her own booth. She immediately recognized us and we engaged in conversation; it was as though no time had passed. It was definitely a NO BRAINER to book her for our makeup. My daughter and I got to have a trial run for our makeup (even though we knew we did not need it) hey, what girl doesn't like to feel pampered ?? Austie was on site the day of the wedding and was simply amazing !! She made all of us feel like Cinderella and not just by putting on our makeup. I guess that is what impresses me the most about her. You can go to a lot of places for makeup. But, I promise you will never experience anything like Austie. There is a saying "you might not always remember what someone says to you - but, you always remember how they make you feel." Austie makes you feel goo and the bonus is that she makes you look amazing too. I simply adore her......

Austie is the best!! I've never looked so good in my life! Austie came to our hotel and did the makeup for all my bridesmaids and my mom and me on the wedding day, and she did such an awesome job, I can't say enough. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful! We all looked like ourselves, just WAY better than usual. She was also great about scheduling a practice session with me before the wedding and keeping in touch in the weeks leading up to the wedding. I didn't have anyone to do our hair, so Austie recommended a colleague who was also awesome (Lindsay Telkamp) and the girls and I looked so great! I really couldn't be happier with what they both did for us. I wish I could post before and afters of all of us on here. Austie's a total professional and takes her work really seriously and I totally felt like I could count on her to show up on time and do a great job, but she's also a great person and so much fun to have around. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Austie was the best!! She did the makeup for all of my bridesmaids, my mother, and for me, and we all looked great! She was incredibly flexible about times and locations, and she got us all done quickly and right on time. She also had great ideas for all of us. Sometimes wedding makeup looks like Cirque du Face, but Austie did a great job making us look natural, yet hot. She was also significantly more reasonably priced than other people in Portland with comparable training and skills. Hire her.

Austie is amazing. She is the sweetest person and she is absolutley amazing at her job. She was very flexible she allowed me to bring my mom to my bridal trail and charged half the cost which she applied to the balance for her makeup the day of, my mom doesn't wear makeup often and I wanted her to be comfortable with her makeup the day of. Not only was I very pleased with my makeup, but I have never seen my mom look so amazing. Austie did the makeup for me and my bridal party as well as both moms. She kept her cool even when people were late and she still got everyone done with time to spare and we all looked better then we have ever looked. Austie is an amazing find and worth every penny. My make up lasted all day even in the rain. My maid of Honor evan said " my make up looked so good I didn't want to wash it off"

Literally the first thing I did after getting engaged in November, 2008 was to book Austie (who I now think of as my sister-from-another-mister) as my makeup artist. Not only is she a gem of an individual, her artistic flair is nothing but the best when it comes to YOUR face. She could make a monkey look beautiful, which is not to say that any of you out there look like monkeys, but she takes who you are and develops it into your personal best.
In addition to being an incredible makeup artist she is also such a joy to be around. Weddings, no matter how you spin them, are stressful. When Austie walks into the room you experience a type of soul therapy. She is charming, funny and a perfectionist to the core. So really, you are getting a two-for-one deal: a makeover and therapy.
Now, I know Austie. I trust Austie. And I would trust no one else with my face--especially on THE single biggest day of my life.
Enough said.

Austie is a very talented make-up artist. She did a beautiful job on my make-up the day of my wedding along with my hair. She is extremely professional and trustworthy. I highly recommend her for anyone's wedding. They would be lucky to have her do their make-up and hair on such an important day!

Austie was amazing! First of all, my wedding was the weekend of a big professional hair and makeup event in Portland and almost NO ONE was available - yikes! I thought I was doomed until a referral from my bridal (gown) shop put me in touch with Austie. Like an angel she swept in at the last moment and took care of me and my bridesmaids and did it with care and style.

I had prepared a powerpoint presentation with all kinds of pictures of, my gown, classic looks from the silver screen, and red carpet starlets, but had no time for a face-to-face consult with Austie and had to do everything over the phone. Let's just say on my big day she NAILED it! The thing I heard over and over again from guests was, "You look like a movie star," seriously! Austie was a true artist who transformed me into a radiant beauty with just the right look for my hair and gown. I truly felt like a "star" on my big day, and that's just the feeling every bride wants to feel on her wedding day.

Austie was also the consummate professional, arriving promptly, using the highest quality products, and making me and my bridesmaids feel comfortable and at ease. Austie worked seamlessly with my hair stylist, photographer and the facility to provide the utmost professional service on one of the most important days of my life. I highly recommend her for any bride wanting superior artistry, exceptional talent, and a truly nice person to work with for their bridal makeup.

Wow...how do I even begin to describe Austie's expertise. She has a true talent for identifying what it is people need and want on their day...whether it is minimal or all gussied up:). Her heart is to make someone's most special day special in her own way, an artistic masterpiece. I felt like my make-up was a true art piece and it complemented my complexion and look more than I would have ever imagined!!! She definitely prompt to respond and on schedule! Her personality along with her portfolio (Hello...doing a Red Carpet event of people painted Chinese dresses has got to make it up there on anyone's list for a..."yes, she did my make-up") make a match that is a rare find. No words can attest to how much I would recommend or promote Austie as your make-up artist for the day.

I wish she would have been making hair pieces and veils when I got married. She offers amazing pieces to a bridesmaids gift or the perfect completion to a bride's look. You should check out her etsy site as well as her webpage to get only a small glimpse of how she rocks!!!

Austie is truly gifted. She has a way of making a bride feel beautiful. She helps brides to determine how they want to feel the day of their wedding, and then she creates the look to match. Austie's experience shows in her work. She has done my makeup for modeling events and a runway show. I would, and do, hire her for any event.
The other amazing thing about her is her heart. She is a woman that I would not hesitate to recommend to friends. She gets the job done and is a delight to work with.
Also... if you have time be sure to check out her hair pieces, and veils. They are beautiful!
