About

2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

I’m a make-up artist based in beautiful Tamarindo Beach, Guancaste, Costa Rica. I’m a California native and in 2008 after many, many visits to Costa Rica, I made the permanent move here. All the right doors opened after my arrival and I was lucky enough to connect with the best wedding planners in the area and soon after launched Maravilla Make-Up.

For me, the coast of Costa Rica embodies the ideal place to live and work. The natural beauty here and the super laid back vibe inspire me on a daily basis to live life to the fullest. Working in the wedding industry here has been amazing because I think that the majority of couples that choose this destination for their wedding get that about Costa Rica, its simplicity.

I feel really blessed to do what I love to do. One of the best parts of my job is is that I get to spend those last unforgettable moments with the bride before she walks down the aisle, helping her achieve the look she loves. Surrounded by her closest friends and family, these are memories she will never forget and I feel very fortunate to be a part of that experience. My goal is to make the brides that I work with feel confident and gorgeous on the most special day of their life!

I offer on-site services and am available for weddings located throughout Costa Rica.

    She’s amazing!

    Tricia made me feel so beautiful and special on my big day. She listened to what I wanted and went above and beyond to make my inspiration picture a reality. She is very thorough, prompt, and and a pleasure to work with. She made me and my bridal party not have to stress about doing our own makeup, and my makeup lasted through a day on the Costa Rica beach for the wedding. 10/10 would recommend to any Bride getting married in Costa Rica!

    We loved tricia!

    Tricia is a FANTASTIC makeup artist, and was so great to work with. She perfectly created the look I had imagined and made all of my bridesmaids and moms look so beautiful, everyone was raving about how much they loved their makeup. I won't lie, I was a little worried about the humidity in Costa Rica and potentially sweating everything off by the end of the night, but girl, she must have some magical secret because my face stayed glowing and not one smudge throughout the entire day, tears and all. She uses quality products, and was very thorough making sure everything was clean, sanitized and safe.

    Tricia went above and beyond for us. She is a genuinely kind person, and we had so much fun hanging out with her all morning while getting ready. There was even a moment where our housekeeper stopped by and we wanted to communicate with her, but none of us spoke Spanish, so Tricia gladly stepped in and translated for us. It was so sweet and we were so grateful to have her there.

    Thank you for everything Tricia, we love you!!
