Reese Witherspoon’s Luxurious Stay in Costa Rica

Reese Witherspoon went on a girl’s trip to Costa Rica in the early fall to explore some of the country’s lush rainforests. The Legally Blond actress found some pretty sweet digs with the Hacienda AltaGracia, Auberge Resorts Collection. 16 acres of private beachfront property and an adults-only lagoon-style pool with white sand beaches, a water slide, and a swim-up bar are just some of the many amazing amenities of Reese’s luxury stay. Let’s dive deeper into the river of opulence.

The Suite

Reese Witherspoon stayed in one of the luxurious suites with a balcony view of mountains and rainforest in Hacienda AltaGracia. The hotel is located within Corcovado National Park and is surrounded by tropical rainforests. She shared photos from her trip on Instagram, including a shot of her sitting by an infinity pool overlooking lush greenery. She also visited Manuel Antonio National Park while she was there, which is known for its wildlife, such as sloths and monkeys.

The Many Amenities

The resort sits on 150 acres of rainforest and has all the facilities. The resort/coffee farm features some grand patios and terraces as well as many local sites and nature pockets in and around the place. The farm also uses fresh local produce provided by a vegetable farmer. Not only that, guests looking for some adventure can also opt to go horseback riding, indulge in some tree climbing, or busier the remote Boruca tribal Village.

Trekking in the Nature

One of the most exciting parts of the hotel is the surrounding rainforests. The rainforest is home to more than 10% of Earth’s plants and animals, making it an excellent place for observation. Guests are invited on daily excursions and treks through one of Costa Rica’s national parks wherein the guides will help spot wildlife such as monkeys, sloths, toucans, coatis (look like raccoons), trogons (large tropical birds), crocodiles, and possibly even jaguars or pumas!

People will tend to explore their personalities via makeup looks that will aim more at individual expression than perfection. At least, that’s what celebrity makeup artist Robin Black thinks will happen.

#2. Face-Lifting Techniques

On social media, you can find many videos where people teach how to achieve a lifted look for your face with makeup alone. One TikTok example is applying concealers to the outer corners of your eyes up toward the edges of the brows to create the illusion of wide-awake eyes. Another technique is shown by Lisa Eldridge, celebrity makeup artist, and Lancôme’s global creative director. It is applying lip liner in a way to make the lips look lifted and happier. First, the concealer is applied to the outer edges of the lips, acting as a guide. After that, the center of the bottom lip is overlined. When drawing up toward the corners, the liner is brought into the natural lip, avoiding the very edge.

#3. Bejeweled Eyes

The seeds of rhinestone-heavy makeup were planted into people’s minds by HBO’s Euphoria. According to Pinterest, the dazzling trend is here to stay. Last year saw a 110 percent increase in searches for crystal eye makeup. This fact indicates we’ll be seeing more sequins, glitter, pearls, and rhinestones in 2022.

#4. High-Shine Lips

They have other benefits when infused with skincare to treat lips. All it takes is adding some lip gloss to either bare lips or over the lipstick.

#5. Futuristic Embellishments

Rather than channel a blast from the past, opt for launching yourself to the future with this style of makeup. Robin black suggests that a person should make a statement by using faux tattoos, face stickers, and foils. These are easy to remove, and there’s no commitment involved.
