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.

Tamarindo wedding make up
I recently celebrated my wedding in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Tricia did the make up for myself and 6 guests. She did an excellent job and everyone was very happy with the results. Tricia was flexible and easy to communicate with. Thank you for helping to make my special day so memorable!Sent on 12/12/2019

Tricia is the best!
Tricia did my make-up as well as my mom's make-up for my wedding and we were both beyond happy with how it turned out! I do not wear a ton of make-up, but Tricia made me feel so beautiful while still feeling like 'me.' And, my make-up stayed on perfectly despite it being 92 degrees for our beach wedding (and, hours of dancing)! My mom was nervous to have her make-up done because she wanted to look age appropriate and also does not generally wear much make-up. We gave Tricia a photo for what my mom wanted and she absolutely nailed it. Beyond being very talented, Tricia is warm, fun, cool and patient! I would recommend Tricia over and over again :)Sent on 04/17/2020
Maravilla Make-Up's reply:Thank you for your kind words Lisa. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your wedding day! I loved meeting Mom and helping her look like "Jane Fonda" haha. Didn't she??? You looked radiant! Thank you once again for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day.

Tricia is the BEST!
Tricia was absolutely incredible. Not only is she insanely talented (everyone in our wedding party looked phenomenal) but she is an absolute pleasure to have around. Getting ready for your wedding is an intimate and nerve wracking experience, Tricia was such a calming and welcomed addition to the atmosphere. I'm so appreciative to have had both her insane talent and calm and cool personality in the room.Sent on 06/03/2019
