MaryCarmen Bernardino Makeup & Hair Artist does makeup and hair for special events, predominantly for weddings. She had been working in Nuevo Vallarta, but moved to the Sayulita area in 2015 to be with her boyfriend in preparation for her own upcoming wedding, and is now offering her services in Sayulita, San Pancho, and Punta Mita. Having extensive experience working for several years as a freelance consultant at the Mayan Palace, MaryCarmen is known for her attention to detail, and her ability to satisfy the most discriminating clients. Originally from Mexico City, where she graduated with honors from an elite beauty design school, she is trained in, and offers a full range of beauty services, aside from just hair and makeup, including facials, manicures/pedicures, and massage.

Utilizing very high quality products designed specifically to withstand and perform in Sayulita’s climate conditions (sun, heat, humidity), clients can rest assured knowing they will not only look amazing right after their make-up is applied, but also 10 hours later. Catering to all types of women, MaryCarmen is the consummate professional who excels at intuitively assessing each client’s personal style and skin color/tone, while also taking into account their color preferences to create the perfect look for their special occasion. Her true satisfaction comes “from a bride being astounded by how good she looks, when the bride is truly happy with the results”. She enjoys making each woman look and feel their best.

“The first thing is for the client to feel comfortable. It’s my priority. You can look fantastic, but if you aren’t feeling comfortable, that’s no good”. A computer program is utilized where a photo of the client is uploaded, and then different make-up choices are digitally applied to help determine which colors and styles best suit that particular client.

Usually a day or two before the actual date of the event, MaryCarmen will schedule a trial run, where she will make up the client as a sort of rehearsal so both can decide on the final look and if any fine tuning needs to occur. That way, a rapport has already been established andboth parties can feel confident that there will be no surprises and that the event look will be a success. Many clients in Sayulita “want a beachy, natural look,” which is produced with the aid of an airbrush, another tool in her beauty arsenal.

As an intuitive person with an eye for detail, MaryCarmen has found the perfect creative outlet for her talents. Anna Hermans, a client from the US, was definitely satisfied, stating, “She is a professional. Carmen did my hair and makeup for my destination wedding in Sayulita last March. She immediately put me at ease. She understood how I wanted my makeup to look and the final result was just beautiful!! I would definitely recommend her!”
