Michelle + Matthew’s Romantic Summer Pippin Hill Wedding

RJG_1689

Get ready to swoon because Michelle + Matthew’s romantic summer Pippin Hill wedding is going to make your heart flutter. With soft florals, a crisp white and gold palette, and the stunning grounds of Pippin Hill, this big day was everything brides dream of, and we’re so happy to have been part of it.

Michelle is a classic beauty, and that’s exactly what we embraced for her bridal look. Of course, we wanted to showcase our bride’s lovely face, so we swept her hair back in a chic chignon but kept it loose for a more romantic feel. For her makeup, it was all about her lovely eyes. We enhanced their natural shape and color with neutral hues as well as liner and lashes. Our bride looked stunning on her wedding day.

We adored being a small part of this warm weather wedding and can’t wait to share a few of our favorite moments with you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Lucie + Nick’s Classic Mount Ida Farm Wedding

AWPFavorites098

There’s something about a fresh, white palette and classic florals that will always make hearts aflutter. That’s certainly the case with Lucie + Nick’s classic Mount Ida Farm wedding. This beautiful couple’s rustic meets classic feté was filled with sweet, intimate moments, stunning details, and southern tradition (hello, buried bourbon).

For her wedding day, Lucie looked absolutely breathtaking in her lace gown. We kept her hair soft and romantic in a half up, half down style with a jeweled clasp holding back her dark locks. As for her makeup, the eyes have it. We subtly smoked out her outer corner but kept her lid bright to keep her eyes looking bright and awake. With a smokier eye look, we chose to keep her lips sweet and subtle with a bit of pink gloss.

Lucie shone throughout her big day as she and Nick said their vows and celebrated with friends. From the classic tradition of burying the bourbon to a romantic, al fresco ceremony, and classic reception, this pair’s Mount Ida Farm wedding was one for the books.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Bentley + Michael’s Classic Farmington Country Club Wedding

MB1_3628

Classic designs, a chic + clean palette, and a gorgeous bride? Yes, please! Bentley + Michael’s Farmington Country Club wedding ticked all of our wedding boxes, and it’s fair to say that we’ve got heart eyes over this entire affair. If you’ve ever wanted to know what the perfect, traditional big day looks like, Bentley + Michael’s will have you day dreaming for the rest of the week.

Of course for us, it’s the bride that makes the wedding, and Bentley could not have been more lovely. We kept her deep brown locks down and in loose curls, but swept them to the side so that guests (but most importantly Michael) could see her bridal glow. For her makeup, we focused on her eyes. Darkening up the corners and keeping the lid light brightened up her more smoky look for the best of both worlds. Of course, no bride is complete without glowing skin.

Farmington Country Club provided the ideal, classic venue for this pair’s nuptials, and with the crisp white florals and linens and golden details, this Charlottesville wedding was the height of elegance. We were so pleased to be part of Bentley + Michael’s wedding day, and now, we’re lucky enough to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Best Fall Wedding Makeup and Hairstyles | Michelle’s Big Day at UVA Chapel

fall wedding charlottesville

The leaves are changing and fall is in full swing! At Charlottesville Makeup Artist we love how this time of year inspires rich color palettes to use for fall wedding makeup and hairstyles. Our gorgeous bride Michelle’s recent wedding photographed by Jason Jarvis Photography at the University of Virginia Chapel and Veritas Winery  is the perfect example. We spent the day creating lovely and individualized looks for a diverse bridal party and couldn’t be happier with the results. Michelle wanted a natural look and had this to say after the wedding:

 “I received so many compliments on how I looked and how surprisingly natural I looked (them also knowing that I don’t wear make up ever). My bridesmaids love how they looked and how laid back the morning was. It was truly a remarkable day. You guys made me feel beautiful and for that I am forever grateful.” – Michelle

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves and were so thrilled to be a part of such a special day!

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist Team

Meredith’s Spring Wedding Makeup and Hairstyle at Trump Winery

best wedding makeup charlottesville

Charlottesville Makeup Artist had the pleasure of creating a stunning spring look for Meredith as she prepared to marry the love of her life, Villard, at Trump Winery. The beautiful images by Aaron Watson Photography say it all and we are excited to share them with you! Meredith’s soft, classy, spring wedding makeup and hairstyle were perfectly her — not too overdone but still provided extra glam for her big day. We used false eyelashes  and some of our favorite eyeshadows from MAC Cosmetics to accentuate her gorgeous eyes and create a look that was natural and photographed well. For her up-do, we pulled her hair into a low bun at the nape of her neck which was glamorous with or without her veil. Take a peek at our Before and Afters to see other wonderful looks we’ve created this season!

With love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist team
