Need Suggestions on hair and makeup for brown brides in the Playa del Carmen area

Recommended Posts

Thanks ladies! Thisisit, that's one of my favorite engagement pics. I didn't know the photographer was shooting. He caught us in a really intimate moment. Mischaka, I was wondering about how well they would be able to add the pieces so they would blend well. I emailed Waves and pretty much asked them were they going to be able to do it or not.

Hey msglave. Im getting married a few months after you at the same resort and need to find a makeup artist as well. Me and my girls range from yellow to brown lol!!! I need someone that is experienced with all different shades.  Can you let me know who you end up going with for the makeup? I think we have the hair part set (weave, locks, braids - the end). 

 

Thanks!

Hi all

 

I went to do a site visit a few weeks ago and had a trial done by Norma Fernandez - who works for MAC in Cancun.  She is SUUUUPER nice and did an AWESOME job for my trial and her prices are soo much more reasonable compared to a few other artists in town.  She brought another girl with her, Lesley, to do my hair and i had my reservations about how she did. I literally came out of the pool, washed my hair and plopped down for my trial - yes a sopping mop of tangled mess.  I don't know any other worse scenario I could have given Lesley so I was thinkng to myself- if i come out of this half decent she's good.  I need a ton of heat for my hair - and its THICK-  i swear i have enough hair for two people. and its long.  my fears were suddenly alleviated when after blow drying my hair out into a crazy 'fro, she whipped out a chi flat iron.  :)   about a half hour later of curling and twirling i had a fancy wavy updo that she fastened with some kind of clip and rubber band and bobby pins.  I want to wear my hair up for the ceremony and dinner then let it out and down for the dancing. I didn't get too specific with style - i just let Norma and Jen do their thang and it turned out really really awesome.  My fi was there and I think he really really liked it b/c my makeup just looked like an enhancement of me - i didn't look a completely different person. the makeup felt light -  I asked for natural and to play up my eyes with lashes.  and it came out great!  i'm posting a random pic of what my hair looks like natural - and then the "after" pics.  any questions  just ask!

Eunice!  Thank you so much for posting.  They did a fabulous job!  You look beautiful! My hair is similar to yours (the natural curls a little tighter which makes my hair a little thicker) but it would be the same process. So if she could work yours she can work mine!

 

Do you know if they go to Cancun?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
