April in Asheville is a popular time of year for weddings, coming into spring the backdrop of the area brightens up with flowers and greenery. The beauty of spring draws people in from all over, but be careful how you pack your bags, because sometimes Old Man Winter comes for an unexpected visit.
The week leading up to the wedding was the Asheville spring everyone expects, mild temperatures and sunny skies, and the perfect setting for any wedding.
When the day of the wedding arrived it came as a huge surprise that by the time the sun went down spring became winter and the ground became white with snow. You never know what to expect in April, but a little unexpected snow can create the most beautiful moments.
Gina wanted a very natural look for her bridal makeup. Soft peach tones for a natural glow and a soft winged liner gives this bride a timeless look.
Everyone vendor on this wedding was an absolute dream to work with and we highly recommend.
Natural bridal beauty is a common request from our clients and we are happy to provide. We love to create dramatic and glamorous makeup looks but that is not always what makes every client the most comfortable. When deciding on what type of makeup application we are going to provide for our clients a good place to begin is with a natural makeup.
The Natural Makeup
The natural makeup is an excellent place to start when deciding on a look for your wedding day. Natural makeup begins by slightly enhancing your fresh face. The makeup featured above starts with a sheer to medium coverage foundation that resembles the natural skin. We used MAC Face and Body foundation with MAC skin perfecting powder to set. We added a pale pink blush and lip slightly deeper than the natural lip and cheek. Eyes were enhanced with neutral brown shadows and black mascara. Finally we filled in the brows with powder that compliments the hair, this frames the eyes and finish the look. This is just enough makeup for a natural beauty and a great place to start for someone who may want to go more dramatic because it is so easy to build upon.
The Styled Shoot
The styled shoot was created by an incredible team of wedding vendors here in Asheville, NC. The dress was designed by Angela Kim Couture. Angela asked for the makeup to be soft and romantic, natural but enhanced and this is what we came up with. Natural bridal beauty. The shoot was featured in the Asheville Wedding Guide, where you can see other stunning details and vendor offerings. Photo by Jennifer Callahan Photography makeup by Doll Box Beauty
