Roni + Matt’s Soft Summer Wedding at Castle Hill Cider

Cool shades of sky blue, bright summer sun, and our beautiful bride? Sounds like the perfect soft, summer wedding to us. With Castle Hill Cider as the backdrop, this big day was easily one of our favorites from the past year.

While, obviously, the entire wedding was a delight, it’s our bride Roni who we can’t stop gushing about. Given the light and airy nature of this soft summer wedding, we decided to keep Roni’s makeup natural and bright like the day itself. To keep things romantic, we used soft mauve tones on her lid that brought out her stunning brown eyes, and we keep her lips sheer but tinted with a pink hue thanks to a bit of gloss. As for her skin, we wanted it to reflect the summer weather and went with a glowy look with a flushed cheek.

Finally, we left Roni’s hair down for a fresh look. We added a soft barrel curl through her dark locks and parted it down the middle for a look that framed her beautiful face.

Roni + Matt’s summer wedding was definitely one for the books, and we’re so excited to show you some of our favorite moments.

Mikal + Alex’s Boxwood Villa Wedding

Mikal and Alex

Ah, sweet summertime. We miss you over here at Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC, but we can relive some of our favorite summer weddings until temperatures start to warm. Mikal + Alex’s Boxwood Villa wedding was certainly one of them. This pair’s wedding combined rustic charm and romance in the perfect way, and we can’t get enough.

Another thing we’ll never get tired of? Seeing Mikal on her wedding day. This beautiful brunette bride was a blast, and we adored working with her. For her makeup look, we kept things all about the eyes. Using an eyeliner, we defined her last line and played up her eyelashes while leaving the rest of her look neutral. As for her hair, it was a mix of classic meets romantic. We swept her brunette locks back into a curling, intricate updo and left tendrils falling around her face.

Sure, winter may be here now, but take a moment and remember all the summer lovin’ — particularly Mikal + Alex’s.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Catherine + Tim’s Spring King Family Vineyards Wedding

AaronWatsonPhotography0698

Sunshine, outdoor vows, and greenery galore? Catherine + Tim’s spring King Family Vineyards wedding was one for the books. From Catherine’s gorgeous smile and bright eyes to seeing this couple so in love on their wedding day, we were ecstatic to part of something so special. Now, thanks to Aaron Watson Photography, we get to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Of course, we can’t deny that working with Catherine was our favorite part of the day. This bride’s sweet smile made our job so easy. For her bridal makeup look, we went a bit more glam and highlighted Catherine’s stunning eyes (seriously, they’re gorgeous). We lined her eyes and went a bit smokier with the look before adding a nude lip. For her hair, we kept it soft and romantic with loose curls.

We’re so excited to showcase some of our favorite moments from Catherine + Tim’s spring King Family Vineyards wedding and continue celebrating this beautiful couple.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Rachel + Nick’s Summer King Family Vineyards Wedding

R+N Portraits-105

If winter weather is getting you down, we have a dose of summer on the blog for you today. Rachel + Nick’s summer King Family Vineyards wedding is the perfect way to remember that flowers will bloom again, the sun will shine, and a couple in love is always in season. Rachel + Nick’s big day was as romantic as they come. From Rachel’s gorgeous smile to she and Nick’s sweet first look,  this pair was basically glowing on their wedding day, and we were so happy to be a small part of it.

Of course, if we’re going to talk about a glow, we have to talk about our glowing bride. For Rachel, it was all about her wonderful smile and those beautiful eyes. We made sure that her eyes were the focal point of her look, defining them with liner and lashes. For her lips, we kept the color neutral so that her eyes stood out even more. Finally, for her hair, we swept it into a half-up, half-down style with romantic curls framing her face. The result? A glowing bride we just couldn’t get enough of.

We were so happy to help Rachel feel beautiful during her summer King Family Vineyards wedding and can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Ali + Alex’s Natural Mount Ida Farm Wedding

Candice Adelle Photography Virginia Wedding Photographer Mt. Ida (540 of 589)

If you love natural florals, rustic settings, and a bride and groom so in love that it radiants through the photos, then you’re going to fall in love with Ali + Alex’s Mount Ida Farm wedding. This couple’s late summer wedding was basically a Virginia fairy tale, and we’re so glad that we got to be a small part of Ali’s big day.

It’s no secret that Ali is stunning. With her lovely eyes and mega-watt smile, our job was easy. We, of course, wanted to highlight those natural features so we defined her eyes with a bit of liner but kept the colors natural. For her lips, we added a bit of a deeper tone for the season, and we kept her skin glowing.

Everything about this couple’s Mount Ida Farm wedding was a dream, and we can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team
