Hi, I'm Amber!

Advanced Practice Esthetician
Certified Aesthetic Injector

I'm a self-described Skincare Nerd, and Founder of Amber Budd Atelier, a skin and lash spa in Burnsville, MN, and developer of Amber Budd Skincare.

My passion is cell health, and how our skin functions, and what we can do to make it function better - what ingredients and services are going to give my clients the most radiant, glowing, ageless skin possible. 

Over time, my career has evolved from practitioner, to owner, to product developer to trainer, to injector. I'm loving the results I'm able to get my clients with Dysport, Xeomin and Botox. 

Outside of work, the things I am most passionate about in life are the three F’s: Family, Friends and Food! I love spending time with my handsome husband, our cutie pie toddler, and adorable rescue pup Henry (a.k.a. the VP of Animal Relations)

If you’re dying to know more, here are five things you might not know about me:
1. I sang the national anthem for the Minnesota Twins…and I’ve sung it for pro and semi pro sports teams/events more than 500 times.
2. I studied opera in college, and was an opening act for Grand Funk Railroad, Travis Tritt, Dierks Bentley, and Trace Adkins. (Bonus fun fact: Trace said “you’ve got pipes!”)
3. I’ve travelled to 47 of the 50 States.
4. Louisa May Alcott is my favorite author – I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read her books.
5. Tacos are my favorite food – I could eat them three meals a day and not get tired of it. Ever.


Still here?  We're going to be good friends - So Let’s connect! Shoot me a message with 5 things most people wouldn't know about you!
I mostly hang out on Instagram @amberbudd or you can email me at
