How It All Started
A graduate of James Madison University, Anne Kibler relocated from Washington DC to the Charlottesville area in 2010 and honed her skills as a certified professional makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics. After working on over 10,000 faces and receiving countless requests to do “makeup on the side”, Anne officially opened Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC in April 2012. Since then, our team of ten (and growing!) makeup and hair artists has been blessed to become the premier provider of wedding hair and makeup services in Charlottesville and the surrounding areas.
In an effort to empower others, Anne created the Makeup Artist Beauty Podcast in September 2013. Its immediate popularity had her featured on iTunes “New and Noteworthy” during its first month of production.
Interested in taking a more hands on approach to sharing her secrets, Anne approached Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) about developing an accelerated Makeup Artistry track for students. In the fall of 2013, Makeup Artistry was officially part of the PVCC registry and Anne assumed the role of Professor of Makeup teaching a 21-hour Makeup Artistry series currently scheduled to run through the Spring of 2015.
Our team’s work has been featured on Fox News, CBS, NBC and PBS stations nationwide. Anne has personally worked with high profile individuals such as Senator Tim Kaine, US Attorney General Eric Holder and has been approached by television networks to work with politic figures and celebrities such as Mitt Romney and Nick Lachey.
