It is not easy to imagine that such luxurious and wonderful places can exist within the jungle. And, yes, those paradises exist, this is Punta de Mita, full of incredible and comfortable villas with endless pools, in the most exotic environment one can imagine. Surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Ocean, in one of the largest bays in the world, Bahia de Banderas in Nayarit, Mexico.

In one of these wonderful villas, called «Casa Tres Soles», we had the opportunity to do makeup and hair for Rachel, a beautiful bride, who wanted to look natural but glamorous. The wedding was on June, 2021.

We were hired by Rachel for two days. At her Welcome Party she wanted to look different than her wedding day. For that day she wanted her hair loose, with glam waves. Which was a great challenge for our stylist, since it was June 25th, an extremely humid and hot time in Punta de Mita.

In addition, her hair is very curly, and this type of hair frizz quickly exposed to the sea breeze. To prevent this problem we used the luxury styling brand on her, Moroccanoil, and did a blow-dryer and curling iron to prolong the style in her outdoor photos.

For the natural look she wanted, we used airbrush makeup without overly powdering the skin, to give it a fresh, glowy finish, to work with the sunset lights, and to make sure the makeup stayed on for several hours without melting despite the heat of that day.

Despite the heat and humidity Rachel had no problems with her makeup or hair that afternoon. The photos were taken in another luxurious venue, the beach at the St. Regis hotel in Punta Mita by professional photographer Taryn Baxter.

The next day was the big day. For the wedding Rachel chose a more classic hairstyle. An elegant updo that combined perfectly with her spectacular wedding dress.
This natural and elegant makeup along with her hairstyle, veil and dress resulted in a sophisticated look that highlighted her natural beauty.

This amazing wedding were planned and designed by the stunning Wedding Planner Talbot Ross.
