    Hi guys,

     

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a professional hair and make up artist (other than the resort) who come to on site weddings? Also, preferably someone who does airbrush make up?

     

    Thanks!

      I'd be interested to find this info out too.  Jochy Campusano is the only makeup artist I could find.  You can send him a message through Facebook.  He got back to me immediately and I would absolutely use him, except that to come to resort it needs to be makeup for a minimum of 5 people, and I am not having any bridesmaids in my wedding.

        Sorry Krystal there seems to be a problem with the messages, they don't go through.

         

        The make up artist that is coming to do our make up is from the Capital (Santo Domingo), she speaks english

         

        you can see some of her work here in this blog

        She's charging me $80 and the girls $50 which is great, Here in NY they charge $150 and up which is a lil ridiculous, the only thing is we need to pay for her transportation which is $100/each way by cab, I know the prices and that's right around the fare.

         

        I say why not, it's a professional artist, who know what works in that type of climate, for some peace of mind and great pics... I'm gonna shell it lol

         

        Hope this helps

         

        I looked into Jochy he's also based out in the Capital and he charges $300 to do the bride and $150 for bridesmaids makeup... that is just way too much... he actually wasn't pleasant over email.. I'm glad I found Indira

            My hotel is charging the day pass which got me pretty upset... makes no sense! they're coming in doing make up and leaving..but since I've been communicating constantly with the make up artist she's also coming to NY and will be taking advantage of her trip to do a make up trial, I told her, if she came up with a small portion her and her asistant can actually stay at the resort for the day and stay till the next day... makes no sense paying $95 when it's 134/night to stay.  I refuse to let the resort win lol

                Anyone using her on the next day 11-13-11?  I could use her on 11-14-11 for my wedding and she could get a mini vacation by spending the weekend at various resorts in Punta Cana.  I've been looking for a make up artist . . . seems they are far and few between in Punta Cana.  All the resorts try to get you to use their salons and I have heard nothing good about them.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I'm not opposed to going outside my hotel for a good make-up artist in Punta Cana.

                  Hey Liz

                   

                  Nope she was going to go back to the Capital on the 13th after check out. I'm sure that would work for you if you reach out to her, she's definitely a pleasuer and her work looks great. 

                   

                  You're right, the only "make up" artists in PC are in the Resort Spa's and I wouldn't even call them that :/.

                   

                  Depending on the location of your resort, I'm sure there are Plazas that have all types of stores, souveniers, restaurants, hair salons etc. while I went to do my site inspection I made sure that I ventured out and I found my Salon $25 for hairstyles and they have proof of their work sounds right for me.

                    I emailed Indira today and she said 175 for bride and 100 for bridesmaids/moms! I wonder why the price difference...I emailed asking her to lower the price.
