Hair and make-up artist??

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

 

I am getting married at Azul Beach Hotel on 5-28-11 at 4 p.m. and wanted to book Fernando but the latest he is available is at 12 p.m.  Do you think this is too early to get my makeup done?  I wanted to get makeup done as late as possible so its fresh but I have heard so many good things about Fernando.  Also, his partner Julius from The Makeup Pros is available but i have not heard any reviews on Julius.  Have any of you heard of him or has anyone used him? 

 

I am also looking into Norma from MAC but can't decide who is going to do the best makeup? Has anyone used Norma? If yes, what did you think of her?

 

I have to make a decision soon....Fernando at 12 p.m., Julius or Norma? 

 

Please help and send photos if you have!  THANKS!!!

Hi Melissa,

 

I was wondering who you ended up going with? Your makeup/hair looked great! I'm trying to decide right now between Fernando and MVP....

 

Thanks :)

My sister is a master hair stylist and has been doing my hair my entire life, so naturally I want her to do my wedding hair. I'm not sure if she would even charge me, but if she does, her normal prices are WAY lower than what I've seen on this thread and I know for a fact I'll be 100% happy.

 

I also think my sister or another stylist guest I have coming could do a great job on makeup (even though that's not their specialty). Have any other brides brought their own make-up artist or done their own, i.e. - NOT used someone from Mexico? My only concern is that the climate/weather will be too different and the products/application techniques we're used to back here in the states won't work well down there. Any thoughts or suggestions on this??

I initially was going to bring my make-up artist from home.  However with the cost of flying her in, & paying for her stay Solely for make-up that disappeared.  Then I thought, I would just pay her to show one of my bridesmaids but then weighed in the climate,weather.  So with that side, I booked Norma Perez from MAC in Mexico.

 

It is way cheaper than the above, she's worked with my photog before and she uses the products I love along with having great reviews on all skin types.

They all come to your hotel. Depending on what resort you are at some will charge a day pass for each person.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
