    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!

        Thank you Dreamweddings I was very nervous about this same issue. Also, do you work in Cancun?

              I hope this info is still valid


              So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
