    Hey ladies, there are lots of great reviews on hair and make-up and everyone looks so beautiful, but do any of you guys have any input for an asian gal like me? I hope no one is offended, but I've had make-up done at the counter by people who are not experienced working with asian features and it turns out horrible. Are there any asian brides on this post that can recommend someone in cabo, or anyone that had asian bridesmaids that were happy with their make-up? Thanks so much!

      hey there fellow asian gal...my first question to you would be skin tone. colors will depend on how "yellow" you are. also don't forget that you'll probably be a little tan so think about the shade you turn in the sun. in general, I think pinks, blues and whites with black or brown liner works very well on the eyes.

      I didn't get married in cabo so i'm don't have a vendor recommendation for you but if you're not going to do a trial, I would set a very early apt the day of the wedding to give yourself plenty of time to make suggestions...hope that helps!

        I'm getting married this Oct. in Cabo. I'm having my hair and make up done by Suzanne Morel. I'll post lots of pics and will have a full review when I get back.

          OMG, I know what you mean! I got a trial run done here at home, and it turned out horribly! I was so worried about how it would turn out at the wedding. Fortunately, I absolutely looooved my makeup the day of. I could not have been happier - plus I was so relieved too. The makeup artist at the hotel did such an amazing job. I gave her two inspiration pics. I wanted something fresh and natural, but with a focus on the eyes. I brought my own fake lashes and glue. I got a tip from a makeup artist friend who told me to cut the fake lash in half and just glue them to the outer edges of the eye, which turned out beautifully (this I tried at home first).

          Here were my inspiration pics. I probably got them off this forum somewhere.

          ETA: Lol, I know the pics are not of Asian girls, but I couldn't find any that I liked.

            I'm getting married in Cabo in Nov. and I'm having Suzanne Morel do my hair / makeup. I'll post pics too when I get back so you can see how it looks... Meanwhile have you seen Tammy (Host)'s makeup? She got married at Dreams Los Cabos and she looked very beautiful... her makeup was very pretty! I think overall most girls use Suzanne Morel so I trust her the most!

              Wow, I'm so glad for all your responses! I can't wait to read all your reviews and see pictures. For those of you who are going with Suzanne, how far in advance did you guys do a trial run? And I looked at her prices and I didn't understand her prices for lashes. She charges $25 extra to apply fake eyelashes? Or $60 if she uses her own?

              And Aeroo, how do I see your inspiration pictures?

                Good post idea. I am scared of getting my makeup done by someone due to the fear of looking like a clown! I am thinking of either booking a session w/ a makeup artist here to pick out colors, products and learn how to apply it -- or I could take my chances! Maybe I'll bring specific colors I want for the artist in Mexico? Is anyone doing their own makeup? What are you ladies doing?

                hehe, thanks...i thought i looked horrible...my nose got sunburned so i could not use the foundation i brought (i was too tan) and then i cried so much my false eyelashes were falling off.

                i was a slacker and just did my own...or at least attemped to do my own. i suck at makeup and dont wear any normally.

                  I've contemplating the same thing...I planned on doing my own but if I see what I like with Leah and Tara's make-up, I think I'll book Suzanne.

                    You can't see the pics? They are in there with my post. Weird, I can see them fine on my computer.
