Makeup Artist in PV for Darker Complexion

Recommended Posts

I've made outreach to two makeup artists and both have said that not alot of black girls get married in PV so they don't specialize in darker complexions and may not have the make-up to support.


I'm fine doing my own make-up but would like to leave it to the professionals. I thought about flying someone in, but already doing that with the photographer and hairstylist, so I have to find someone to do it in PV and I'm hoping this thread leads to a few suggestions. feedback.gif


Let the search begin.

Hi Kisa,


I'm Black as well, so I feel your pain. I think she should try Franc Gole or Sebastian. I'm leaning more towards Fran Gole because they have pics of their brides on their site and some are Latino and close to my complexion so it at least gives me a reference. I spoke them in great detail and they assured me they would have no problem with my hair or makeup. They specifically expressed to me that they have experience with Black women. Considering they also have a salon in Toronto (more exposure to our hair and skin type) it made more comfortable because as you mentioned not many black brides get married in Mexico.


I've confirmed with them and have asked them to send my pics of any black brides they may have or will work on prior to my date. If they send some I'll be sure to post them.


I don't know much about Sebastian and they don't have a site, but their info is:

Venustiano Carranza 202

Col. Emiliano Zapata

Puerto Vallarta, Jal

Let me know what you decide!

KISA, I also asked the salon owner of the salon where my hubby works and she says that she does (and has done) make-up for darker complexions as well. The salon is called "Elle". :)

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
