Juan saved me for my wedding weekend. I had contracted with another makeup studio six months before my wedding and had an awful experience. They wanted to overcharge me for using the same makeup artist for my rehearsal and wedding. They made scheduling super complicated, and the quality of the artist was also poor. Working with Juan was the opposite. He was flexible and put together a talented team of hair and makeup artists for my friends and guests. His pricing was affordable, and the team was fantastic. Everyone looked amazing!!! I have had my makeup and hair done dozens of times for events and the red carpet, and Juan's work was my all-time favorite. He gave me the timeless and sophisticated look I wanted to achieve. He is unbelievably talented, kind, organized, and flexible. What more could you want for your big day!!

I am a Chicago, USA resident that had my destination wedding in Cabo. I had to choose between 4 makeup/hair artist that my venue contracts out. I researched each company thru reviews, google searches and Instagram pages. However it was something about Juan and his company that stood out blatantly more glamorous than the rest. Juan transformed me into the most beautiful way I’ve ever seen myself before. I told him prior to my trial, I was ready for his magic and that’s exactly what he did. I received endless compliments all nite long from strangers to family/friends to even staff at venue. I was told I looked like a celebrity a few times! Juan made me look like a couture, glamorous bride and my long hair was styled in old Hollywood waves which turned out beyond my expectations. In addition to the skill and talent, Juan was the sweetest and His team was so friendly. They had a calming energy that kept me calm and peaceful as they were getting me ready for my wedding. My makeup never faded or smeared or diminished its look in the 7 hours I had it on. My hair remained beautiful all nite (and I was able to wear it the next day still the same!) I am convinced I had a perfect wedding and Juan matched the perfection with his expertise and talent. I literally could go on and on! I am so happy I was smart and picked this company!!

Juan Ignacio is a true visionary. He’s not only one of the most lovely and delightful people to be around, he’s a true master at his craft. From accommodating me last minute at 8 in the evening on his day off for my trial session to making me glow at my welcome party and my actual wedding day, working with Juan Ignacio, or as I like to call him Iggy, was amazing. He not only really listened to what I wanted, he created magic. If only I could convince him to move to Los Angeles to be my personal makeup artist…he is THAT good! Thank you Iggy for becoming a great friend, making me look and feel beautiful every single time we worked together, and always making me laugh and smile with your amazing energy. You’re simply the best!

It was actually by chance how I met Juan Ignacio and Piel Canela Makeup Studio. He was coincidentally the brother of my Wedding Photographer and I met him on a meeting with my Planner Lola del Campo. I have no words to express what a beautiful experience it was fro me. Since the first moment I met him, I could feel he's got an angel; and he is so self confident of his work. He is such a professional, and his products, I must talk about them, they are top notch. Since the moment he sits down; as he is so confident, you wanna let him be. That's what I did, I let him perform his magic. My husband, he's from Dallas, and he doesn't love the appearance of too much makeup, and this kid did such an amazing job. My husband absolutely loved it, I highly recommend him. I truly believe you won't find someone better than him.
