      Hi Jessica,

      Have you posted a review of Norma? I contacted her asking for pics but she said her computer crashed and she lost all of her pics. Would you be able to send me any pics from your wedding? My email is: lyeung830@gmail.com

        My mua will be Guillermo Flores from Ultrafemme. The bridal package was $300 which includes a trial, wedding day application, eyelash application, touch-up kit and travel fee if you're in the Cancun area. Patricia, the point of contact was really nice and easy to communicate with. Her contact information is: paranguibel@ultrafemme.com.

        I am a little nervous, but I think it'll be okay when we have the makeup trial. I guess I'll find out in 11 days! :)

        PM me your email address if you would like example pictures I received.

        Hi Bumbles,

        Have you posted a review for Guillermo? I have contacted a few of the makeup artists recommended on the forum but is having trouble deciding. Would you mind sending me a few pics? My email is lyeung830@gmail.com

          Just wanted to let you know that I used Norma Zurama from the MAC in Ultrafemme in Cancun, (she was referred to me by my Hilton Wedding Coordinator), and she was AWESOME. I would definitely suggest using her. She gets an A plus in my book. She is nice, speaks English, uses only MAC products, and did an exceptional job. She's really good at responding quickly to emails too. Oh and she did a demo/trial for me for FREE! She charged me $70 for wedding day make-up. She has someone she uses for hair that previously worked at the Manforte salon, but I found out about that too late. Anyway, below is her contact info...good luck ladies!

          Norma Zurama
          Retail Manager
          M·A·C La Isla Cancºn
          La Isla Shopping Village
          Boulevard Kukulkan Lote 18-10
          Zona Hotelera.
          Tel.(99 8 83 19 12
          Ext. 771
          Cell.(99 2 14 70 22

          (For hair, I used Mary from the Hilton Spa). She was very nice, spoke very little English though, and although she didn't mess up my hair completely, I would probably not go to her again. I'm guessing I could find someone who would have done a job I liked better. My hair was pretty basic, half up with curls...and the curls were definitely flat by reception, but I think that was the winds fault, not Mary's.
          Hi Jessica,

          Would you mind sending me a few pics? I contacted Norma asking for samples of her work and she said her computer crashed and she lost everything. My email is lyeung830@gmail.com.

                This forum gives such good information. Based on the recommendations here, I contacted Fernando and Doranna a couple days before my wedding. I had originally planned to do my hair myself but couldn't get it quite right. Fernando and Doranna were extremely responsive and professional. In the end, I decided to go with Doranna because I decided to do my own make-up (Fernando seems to be known for his make-up and hair team).

                Doranna is extremely talented; her up-dos are really amazing (she did up-dos for my sisters and mom, they all raved). She warned me against having my hair down due to the humidity and wind (something I didn't think about), so we decided on half up, half down for the wedding day. The hair stayed all the way through midnight that day!

                Here's her contact info:
