Hair and Makeup by Barcelo Spa :

Not the greatest picture, but the only one I have from our TTD session taken on my sister's iPhone. Will give you some idea on service from the Barcelo Spa but I will post more pictures and full review when I get my pro pictures :

Adrian is a professional makeup artist from Texas now living in the Riviera Maya. His work is amazing and he uses airbrush foundation.

If you book him he will come to the hotel before the wedding and do a trial hair and makeup run, and will then come to your room again the morning of the wedding. It was lovely and relaxing instead of going to the spa. Adrian and his team came the morning of our wedding and we opened some bottles of champagne and later that morning ordered room service, we were playing music and chit chatting and it just takes away the nerves of sitting in the spa with a stylist who doesn't speak english.

 

Adrian's website is www.StylingTrioRivieraMaya.com

 

To add though, as mentioned in a post yesterday, I used the spa the next day for TTD and I thought they did a wonderful job too.

MakeUp by Adrian and Hair By Christian from www.StylingTrioRivieraMaya.com :

 

These are a few photos taken by guests on our wedding day, again I still don't have my professional photos and will post a full review then.

 

My sister/MOH wanted loose curls ala Lauren Conrad style and this is what Christian did, exactly as she wanted as she normally has dead straight hair. Adrian did her makeup and she loved it, lasted all day :

As Brenners said, I think this could all be easily be booked with your w/c ahead of time, I however waited until I got there. I planned to book my mani/pedi the morning of the wedding but my w/c recommended doing it the evening before, which worked out well for me and the morning of the wedding more relaxed. We booked our couples massage when we got there also as we didn't know our schedule for excursions and stuff, so booked a late afternoon right on the beach. And for the hair and makeup for the TTD day, that was also booked when I got there. But if you know what days and times you want for everything I would go ahead and schedule that with your w/c now. I will add though that the salon never seemed too busy and always appeared to have staff waiting and ready so if you decide to change your days I don't think it would be an issue.

We actually bought our maraca's with us rather than buy down there. I wanted the large ones and I heard they were $3 each down there, and I was able to get them here for $1 each. Plus I had made tags for each one so I was able to attach them here before we left. They were very light so didn't way down bags, but they did take up a bit of space. We had 6 of us on the same flight (including a 2 year old) and had one checked bag each and one carry on each that we had FILLED with the heaviest items, so between us all we only needed to check one extra bag.

 

We got large yellow ones to match our color theme and they had 'Mexico' written on them :

We booked all of our appointments in advance, however one of them wasn't actually made with the spa (wedding day one!). Luckily they fit us in, and didn't even tell us until afterwards, so we didn't panic.

 

I don't have many photos yet, I'll post some better ones as they show up!  I can't seem to find a straight on picture anywhere!

 

Here's my hair.  My friend and bridesmaid made me the hair vine, it was so pretty.

My eyes are closed, but you can kind of see my make up.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
