I'm having him and the hair person come to my hotel the day before my wedding to do a trial so that there are no surprises the day of.

    Agreed, it is stressful to wait till the last minute to see what kind of work they do in person but I am trying to remain optimistic.

    Good luck!

    hmmm, this is quite confusing. Have you sent him payment? Do you have a contract from Fernando? What time is your wedding that day?

    I have an email from him saying he is available my date, that is stressing me out.

      For those of you who used Fernando and did a trial the day before, how long did the trial take? Trying to figure out what time to tell him.

        Hi Diana - your make-up looks beautiful and so do you!
        Do you have the contact info for Norma at MAC? I am getting married at El Dorado Maroma and they charge $500 for an outside vendor, which I really don't want to pay. Did your hotel at Playa del Carmen charge that or were you able to get around it?

          Has anyone ever heard of Adrian from Studio H Playa?

          Bienvenidos Studioh

          I found him online and he's been great with emailing me back so far. He's sent me picture of his work. He works with another hair+makeup artist and an assistant. His prices are very competitive!

          I was thinking about hiring Fernando but I'm kinda scared how seeing how he seems to double-book some days... Plus, I think he's a bit expensive!

            Hi everyone! I also had Norma from MAC Cancun. I LOVED her work!! She was fantastic. I wanted a natural look. Here is picture my friend took right before my wedding.

              I'm so torn...I want to have my make-up done but with the outside vendor fees and the cost of the make-up artist I just don't know! My resort does have a make-up person but really who knows what kind of work they do.

              Any words of advice on if it's worth paying for make-up or just doing my own

                Hi ladies! I have been talking to Fernando and he has been great to work with so far. I'm debating on whether or not I want to book him for a trial as well as the day of. I know I would have peace of mind if I ran a trial, but I've always been pretty happy with my hair/makeup when I've had it done and I know he does good work. Plus, my sister (MOH) is a hair stylist. Anyone who has worked with Fernando have advice? Was the trial worth the extra $?

                  I'm really liking Norma's work. Thanks for the pics, Ladies.

                    HAIR & MAKEUP DAY OF THE EVENT $280 usd

                    PARTY PEOPLE
                    HAIR ONLY $45 up to $70
                    MAKEUP ONLY $80

                    Best of luck! I still haven't decided on who to book yet!

                    Interestingly enough, not sure if its just because you obtained the quote months ago, but here is what I got:

                    BRIDE TRIAL HAIR AND MAKEUP $180
                    DAY OF THE EVENT $350

                    BRIDESMAIDS AND FAM
                    ONLY MAKEUP $90
                    ONLY HAIR $50 up to $80

                    Guess he is getting more expensive - should have asked for a quote then!
