How do I make sure my hair & makeup will be good??
Posted 09 July 2010 - 04:39 PM
In general, I'm very low maintenance when it comes to hair and makeup. I'm not really sure how to do makeup very well (my mom was sick & passed away when I was a teenager so I didn't get much help in these departments). I usually don't mess with it much besides very basic hair/makeup items.
I'm getting married in Puerto Vallarta at RIU Palace Pacifico in October. I know they say I have makeup & hair included in the package but who do they have doing it? Is it people who will make me look tacky or weird? Has anyone had experience with, or seen pictures from, weddings at a resort where they provide hair & makeup service?
I wish I could bring along my own stylist, but our budget wouldn't allow me to spend that kind of money on hair and makeup.
I'll have some girl friends there who are better than me at "beautification," but only slightly. (My most stylish, beauty-oriented friend had too much makeup on at her wedding and her face looked lighter than the rest of her body!).
Do I need to look into which individual at the resort to have do my hair/makeup? Do they offer options or is there just one person at the resort who does it? Should I look into people in the area rather than the hotel people?
It's just really important to me to look good on this day but I feel like I'm going into this blind! Anyone else deal with these questions? Or know all the answers?

i would ask your wedding coordinator to ask the spa that will be doing your hair to give you some pictures. It is also highly encouraged to have pictures of hairstyles you are interested. You may want to go to a hairdresser where you live and do a trial and then take the pictures with you to the resort. the resorts are usually very experience in doing hair and make up for weddings as it is part of the business. There is a thread on here on'post your hairstyles" something like that. check it out, it certainly helped me get ideas.

I wouldn't do a ton of makeup if you don't wear it normally. You want to look like you... and if you aren't a totally glamour girl, then it might be startling to you.
As for hair, bring lots of inspiration pics. If you don't like it, have them tweak what you don't like. Just give yourself plenty of time to get ready.

since you are used to light make-up, it might seem like they are going too heavy, but remember that you'll be all dressed up and you'll want the make-up to look good in pics, so it's got to be a little heavier than usual...you should look like yourself, natural but polished. good luck

I feel the other brides on here have had great experiences with make up and hair stylists at the resorts. They have even done trial runs to test out the looks.
Good luck lady.
