    Hey Everybody!
    We are Suzie & Tomas... newly engaged couple getting married next year at Barcelo Maya Palace (May 2017)! So Excited! We are wondering if it's worth it to use the resort spa for getting ready or if its better to bring in an outside hair and makeup person to the resort? I heard they also moved the spa to a "better location"? Anybody know how it is now?

    Living in Cali... I know how hot the weather can get and hair and makeup need to be done right for hot weather! I've been to a few weddings where it was out of control hot and my mascara ran like a horror show! jaja

    Let me know if anybody has used the Barcelo Spa or if you decided to bring in a specialist for your wedding day.

    Thanks a ton!!!

    Congrats on your engagement and upcoming wedding. The suggestions by vendors here are all great. Because they haven't been suggested yet I'll also say Styling Trio. We've worked with them many times and they always do an amazing job.

    I've included some photos of both the "getting ready" process and the end result and you can see how beautiful these ladies all look even in the hot & humid weather of the Mayan Riviera

  8. Welcome to the I DO MEXICO community/forum Suzie and Tomas!! You found a fab place for all the resources, advice and vendor information for your upcoming wedding in the beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico.

    Regarding hair and makeup, we are a premier agency here in the Riviera Maya area providing expert hair and makeup services for you and your bridal party, family and friends. We use professional grade HD airbrush makeup which is perfect for tropical climates. In fact, here is an excerpt from one of our recent blog articles on this topic, we thought could be of help for you when deciding what to do to look your best! ...

    "Airbrush makeup is a formula designed for face and body, developed expressly for Makeup Artists working in High Definition TV, film, and beauty. The HD airbrush makeup gives the skin not only the perfect look on the wedding day but also the perfect look in the photos as well. Photographers here in the Riviera Maya love airbrush makeup because of the natural look and feel it gives to the skin. Also there is less retouching involved since the airbrushing allows for a more uniform skin. Airbrush makeup holds up very well, it rests on top of the skin, sealing it from outside agents but the skin will still be able to breath and look its most natural.

    If you are getting married in a tropical environment you must be aware that humid weather can be a nightmare. Precisely the reason why there are specific products to keep your makeup flawless for a minimum of 12hrs and up to 18 hours of holding power! It is important that you look your best throughout the day of photo shooting, ceremony, the dancing and crying!...”
