Jamaica is a tropical paradise perfect for your
destination wedding or destination elopement. One of the most appealing things about Jamaica can also work against your hair and makeup on your wedding
day. We have a warm,humid climate and some coastal areas can be very windy.
Dear bride, I don’t want you to have any unnecessary
surprises on your wedding day, so I am going to share with you some important
factors you need to consider when designing your wedding day hair or makeup
style for your beautiful destination wedding or elopement in Jamaica.
- Rae Morris, one of my makeup mentors and also one of the top

outdoors if it is even just photographs to take advantage of the beautiful Jamaican scenery.

I have found that using high quality facial tissues do a good job of mopping up perspiration.
- Maintaining your beautiful wedding day makeup
for your destination wedding in Jamaica - is best achieved by using facial
tissues and or blotting papers. This is
how all the brides in my portfolio have maintained their wedding day look. A large focus of applying bridal makeup for
my brides is using techniques and products that will last even after the last
dance while still having my brides skin look like theirs but better. Powdering makeup to maintain it can cause a
build-up which may cause the skin to look dry and excessively powdered in your
