Makeup in Playa del Carmen

Recommended Posts

Hello girls, 

 

I am getting married in a month and I still don't have a makeup artist!. I didn't expect it to be this expensive (500 usd upwards)! Does anyone has any suggestions of more affordable make up but still good? I have good quotes of Tania Tagle and Angie Velasquez but I haven't found any reviews about them! I'm stressing out and although I know Fernando is amazing I don't know if I can afford him or Styling Trio and MVP is asking me for 2 extra services from my guests (and I cannot commit to it). Any recommendations will be great! Thank you!!!

sara tamargo is about 250 dollars i think, and 150 bridemsaids. and she can do normal or airbrush makeup and she seems great. i ended up booking another stylist at a wedding expo (so got a discount) or i would have gone with her

Thank you Jessi, Sara is unavailable on my wedding day. Any more suggestions? How good it is to have airbrush? Can I just get normal 100% MAC? The airbrush prices are way more expensive and I don't even know if it is worth it!!

I recommend Fernando from The Makeup Pros.  themakeuppros@hotmail.com

 

His team did the hair and makeup for the August wedding I photographed, if you click the link you can see their pictures to see how it looked... and also see who Fernando is!: Gran Bahia Principe Tulum

 

He uses MAC and was fabulous.

oh that sucks. hows your spanish? bodaclick.com.mx is a good website if you can read spanish and write to the vendors - it has vendors, offers etc

 

this is for hair and makeup in the whole cancun area (it does have a catergory specifically for playa del carmen, but a lot of the others will travel)

http://www.bodaclick.com.mx/bodas-mx/cancun/belleza-novias/peinados-y-maquillaje-para-novias/

 

Costs in pesos are nearly always better than costs in dollars

 

this is the link specifically for playa del carmen 

 

i think normal makeup will look great too if you cant find airbrush. style me (one of the vendors on that website) does hair/makeup for 2200 pesos (160 dollars ish)

Hi Yzzel. I would suggest contacting Aida Tantadell. She did my makeup in May, and was really great. She has a salon in downtown PDC, but will also come to you for weddings. it was $200, and she didn't require any other people to get there makeup done. She is really sweet, though the only challenge is that her English is pretty limited. That said, we had no problem between her English and my broken Spanish. She's a real pro and knows what she's doing. She uses MAC makeup, and I know she does airbrush as well. ( that might cost more than the $200, but I didn't get that.) Her number is: (52) 984 873 3910 Her salon is constitutuyentes and Ave. 10 Good luck!

Good luck!

Dream Weddings Riviera Maya is also proud to say that Aida´s work is amazing, she knows how to work with any skin type. she has worked her magic to many of our past bride!

 

Feel free to ask me anything and I will be happy to help.

 

Happy Planning

Joyce

I'm also looking for a make-up artist, but I wanted to see some pictures of Chinese/Asian brides. I'm Chinese and I know I normally need different style for the make-up to look good, but I haven't been able to find any. Any past brides' suggestions?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
