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

Lauren and Preston’s Sunset Winery Wedding at Veritas

Nothing is more swoony than a sunset—except for one with a beautiful bride with cascading curls, the autumnal views of a Virginia winery, and a celebration of true love. That’s exactly what we had in Lauren and Preston’s sunset winery wedding at Veritas winery.

With such a romantic setting, we decided to make our bride and her beautiful bridesmaids look as romantic and ethereal as possible. For Lauren, we kept her stunning brunette locks half-up and half-down with soft tendrils pulled to the front. Of course, when a bride is this gorgeous, we had to make sure her hair framed (but didn’t cover) her sparkling eyes and vibrant smile.

Speaking of those eyes, we played them up with a bit of smokiness around the outer corner and lighter hues over her lid and inner corners for a soft but bright look. We finished them with a bit of eyeliner along her lashline and amped up her already beautiful lashes.

We adored being part of Lauren and Preston’s sunset winery wedding and feel honored to be a small part of their love story. For more from this gorgeous affair, check out some of our favorite moments below.

Liz & Tyler’s Romantic Summer Pippin Hill Wedding

261110_0015

Classic color schemes, greenery, and a romantic summer setting? Yes, we’re totally smitten with Liz & Tyler’s romantic summertime Pippin Hill wedding. This unique blend of classic wedding design elements and romantic details had us feeling like we were living in a summer fairy tale.

Of course, while there were so many gorgeous elements of this big day, Liz was the absolute best part. Her stunning smile and bridal glow were unmatched, and we’re so glad we got to be part of making her feel even more beautiful than she already is naturally. For her hair, we wanted to keep things romantic, so we swept her blonde locks back in a half-up, half-down knot with tendrils falling around her face. With Liz’s makeup, we went defined but classic. Her eyes are so stunning, so we played them up with lashes and liner and kept the rest of her face glowing and natural.

We adored being part of Liz & Tyler’s romantic summer Pippin Hill wedding. Here are some of our favorite moments from the day for you.

Love,

The Charlottesville Makeup Artist LLC Team

Sally Kay & Luke’s Autumn Pippin Hill Wedding

Sally_Luke_wedding0337

Sometimes, there are weddings that simply take your breathe away. Sally Kay & Luke’s autumn Pippin Hill wedding was one of them. From the gorgeous al fresco ceremony to the romantic reception to this couple’s pure love for one another, this pair’s wedding goes down in our books for sure.

For Sally Kay’s wedding look, we wanted to keep things romantic and just a bit smoky to fit with the autumnal, evening timing of the big day. With a bit more dramatic of an eye look, we made sure to keep her lips and cheeks neutral but flushed. We also love Sally Kay’s gorgeous red-hued hair, and we wanted to showcase it. We kept it down, but swept to the side for an elegant touch and finished things off with soft curls.

Being part of this pair’s wedding day felt like a dream. We’re so excited to show you some of our favorite moments from this fall wedding.

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
