Recommendations for makeup artists for African American brides in Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

Now that the big pieces of the wedding are finally coming together (venue, photographer, housing), I'm starting my search for other vendors, including my beauty team. I've looked through the portfolios of many makeup artists recommended here on BDW. Unfortunately, very few have pictures of African American brides or dark-skinned brides. I've also checked out a few on the Internet outside of this site. I want to be careful how I say this, as I would never want to hurt any bride's feelings, but it is clear that many makeup artists have little experience with darker skin, and the foundation makeup comes off looking 'ashy' and the lip and eye colors fail to take into account the undertones of the skin. On a more positive note, I'm looking for recommendations for experienced makeup artists that are comfortable with and own appropriate makeup colors for African American brides, particularly those that are darker-skinned. I would most likely need airbrushing, as I want my makeup to last all day. I don't wear makeup very much, but I do want to look polished for my special day. I would appreciate any and all recommendations, especially if there are pictures to examine. Thanks so much!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
