Soft and Natural Shimmery Make-Up

Here's a few super soft, natural make-up inspiration photos.   Perfect for a tropical beach wedding here in Costa Rica!

Adriana & Eric

We met with Adriana ahead of time for her hair and make-up trial and from the very start, it was obvious that this wedding was going to be beautiful, romantic and stylish. 

Adriana is Costa Rican but met Eric in New York, where they were both living.  They decided to have their nuptials here in Costa Rica at Reserva Conchal.  It was wonderful to get to spend some time with her two beautiful sisters, friends and mom as we got them dolled up for the beachfront ceremony.

Mary & Tom

Congratulations to Mary & Tom on their romantic elopement at Capitan Suizo in Tamarindo.  Despite the dark thundering clouds that were threatening to roll in right at wedding time, they had a beautiful, intimate ceremony -- no rain!

Edible Art

This is totally off the topic of beauty, but we recently did a wedding and the cake was just so gorgeous that I had to take some pics and post them here. It was a spectacular double layer cake with white frosting and what I thought were real orchids. But come to find out, they were not real, they were sculpted frosting.  

Tell me that's not gorgeous?!?

It was made by Victoria Zoch.  To see more of her of beautiful works of art - check her out on Facebook.

Loren & Evan

After a few months of exchanging inspiration photos with Loren, it was great to finally meet her in person when she and Evan arrived in Tamarindo.  She had a trial session at the Diria a few days before the wedding so when the big day rolled around, we already knew she was going to be a knock-out!
Loren had been a busy little bride-to-be perusing Pinterest (what did we do before Pinterest?!?) and was ready with lots of photos of soft, beachy make-up and long loosely curled hair, half-up, half-down. 
Nick is the master at creating loose, flowing styles.  Her long beautiful blonde hair was perfect for this!!

They had a gorgeous ceremony with a sunset backdrop.  What could be better??


Jennifer & Jean Pierre

Jennifer & Jean Pierre chose Cala Luna in beautiful Langosta Beach to have their gorgeous wedding.  We got a chance to meet with Jennifer for her trial session before the big day and it was great to get a feel for her fun, bubbly personality and work with her towards her styling preferences in a more relaxing, non wedding day atmosphere.

She and Jean Pierre have impeccable style - which can be seen in every single detail of their ceremony beautifully planned and executed by the always stylish Four Winds Weddings.  Love the hot pink and gray suit that Jean Pierre was sporting!
