DAHENA BUHAYA

Owner & Makeup Artist

Chihuahua is my land, the land where I was born...

I have been a professional make up artist for 12 years. Since I was a little girl, I had an interest in beauty and esthetics, my mom was a very important part of this dream, she noticed that I was so happy playing with dolls, doing their hair and make up, so she cultivated my skills in arts and painting, she knew it was my calling.

It was then, that I started to form a life that was destined for something big. Years after, I found the exact way that my passion would turn into my dream come true. When I started to work with people's faces, to see how make up transformed them not only aesthetically, but with a direct impact on themselves as a whole, on their self confidence; it transformed how they felt and how they lived THAT moment feeling beautifully renovated, it filled me with joy from the start. Great teachers were part of my formation, they gained my recognition, gratitude and admiration rapidly. It was thanks to them and their wisdom that have shaped me into an excellent professional make up artist.

After growing up in Chihuahua and traveling around the United States, I moved to Playa del Carmen in the Mayan Riviera, one of the most beautiful places, the Mexican Caribbean. I began to grow a network, and work with brides from all over the world, helping them to look at their best during the most important day of their lives.

I consider my work to not be as simple as just applying make up or hairstyling, but as a personal challenge to enhance the beauty and to show the best in each person, as a true masterpiece. I am able to call myself a beauty professional, that enjoys and loves what she does.
