“Tricia did a fabulous job on my wedding day make up! She is super talented and made sure we all felt comfortable and happy with how we looked. She also did an amazing job on the makeup for my friends and my mom and aunt. She was incredibly easy to communicate with and was a highlight of our wedding day. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone getting married in Costa Rica!”

I had booked Tricia pre-pandemic and had to reschedule. She was so accommodating! The Costa Rican sun and heat is no joke and I’m so so glad I had Tricia. Make-up did not budge all day and night. She had me looking absolutely gorgeous! Do not hesitate and book her now.

“Tricia did my wedding makeup as well as the makeup for my bridesmaids back, and we were all thrilled with how the makeup turned out. We did a trial a few days before the wedding to make sure she got down the look I was going for. I couldn’t be happier with my makeup on the day of – I looked natural both in person and in the photos, which is what I wanted. Tricia is so talented and a real pleasure to work with. I’m so glad she was part of our special day!”

“Tricia is a true master! She did my makeup for my wedding in Costa Rica, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Everything throughout the process starting with booking the appointment to the day of the wedding was easy and stress free. I showed her a few photos of the look I was going for and told her what colors I felt most comfortable wearing, and she nailed the look. I was also really impressed with how fast she was! Even during the trial session, she was punctual, very efficient, and she was done in about 30 minutes. If you’re looking for a make up artist who’s beyond talented, really friendly and cool, and affordable then work with Tricia!”

Thanks so much, Tricia! I have honestly never had better make up. You are SO talented… it was such a pleasure! We actually ended up jumping in the pool at the end of the night and somehow my makeup stayed perfectly in tact!!

I am so happy that I chose to work with Maravilla Make-up for my wedding day. Tricia was just a delight to talk to while getting my make-up done and she knew the exact look I was trying to capture. Victoria created a vision for my hair that was stunning in photos. My wedding was outdoors on the beach, and amazingly, my make-up and hair stayed perfectly in place for the entire 6 hours (even after the dance party). I highly recommend working with this fantastic team!

Tricia was amazing. From first introductions, to understanding what I wanted, her responsiveness, professionalism and overall expertise made her such a pleasure to work with! Our makeup/hair came out incredible in our pictures. I would highly recommend her 🙂

~ Caroline & Ben

~ Loren & Evan
Coming from Chicago, I was very nervous to have my makeup done by people I did not know in Costa Rica, as I am very particular. Tricia was absolutely wonderful! I did a trial 4 days before my wedding. She took into account the ideas I had previously presented via emails and Pinterest photos. I wanted a natural, glowy, romantic look and she delivered! LISTEN to Tricia when she says the Bare Minerals and Urban Decay works best in the Costa Rican humidity. My makeup didn’t budge all day! She was on time and flexible with my ever-changing schedule. I was especially grateful that she was accommodating to my mother, who is wheelchair bound. She is professional, incredibly artistic, and adds a warm personal touch to her service! I could not have felt more comfortable or beautiful on my wedding day! Book Maravilla Make-Up!
~ Catherine & Steven
Thanks for everything, all of the girls were so happy with their make-up, and I received countless compliments all night (and now with photos after). I’d love to encourage other brides to use you guys. Can’t say thanks enough.
Thank you so much!! I felt so pretty and amazing thanks to you and your talent. I have some amazing photos to prove that you worked some miracles on my face. And on our mothers and sisters. I am so happy with how everything turned out. Couldn’t have been more perfect. I wish I could look that good every day. You were the best. Thanks again.

Tricia — Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding makeup! My bridesmaids and mothers looked absolutely gorgeous. You were able to understand what we individually wanted and execute perfectly! Everyone was so happy, and our makeup ACTUALLY STAYED! It was the dead of summer and we were sure we would be reapplying, but we didn’t have to! Thank you again for your professionalism and talent!
(Oh and I also found Tricia’s jewelry store and have been wearing my necklace every day since being home!)
Tricia, thank you for all the makeup for bridesmaids, moms, and myself. You were so fun and delightful to work with. You were very patient and listened to what each girl wanted. Everyone looked absolutely stunning!! All the girls were concerned about how I would find a hair and makeup person in Costa Rica that would be as good as we have in the US. But after having their makeup done by you, all they could do was sing praises!! They were super impressed, loved their makeup, and felt beautiful. The moms looked amazing and were so happy they had their makeup done. They even loved their lashes!! One of my biggest fears was my makeup and hair not turning out how I wanted on my wedding day, but you exceeded my expectations. I absolutely LOVED my makeup on my wedding day! I felt so comfortable and beautiful. Even by the end of the night our makeup was still flawless! You are the best. And I’m so glad I chose you to do our makeup and that you were part of our special day! Thank you again so much.
This review is long overdue. Tricia did my wedding makeup as well as the makeup for my bridesmaids back in April 2016, and we were all thrilled with how the makeup turned out. We did a trial a few days before the wedding to make sure she got down the look I was going for. I couldn’t be happier with my makeup on the day of – I looked natural both in person and in the photos, which is what I wanted. Tricia is so talented and a real pleasure to work with. I’m so glad she was part of our special day!
Thank you for everything, Tricia! I am so thankful for your AMAZING work. You are so incredibly talented and I wish you all the best!
