Costa Rica Travel – Take one look at Eliana Gil Rodriguez’s Instagram—awash with shots of her cascading black curls and glowing, poreless skin—and it’s easy to see why the Venezuela-born, L.A-based model and creative director has become a sought-after face.
But recently, on a trip to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, Rodriguez took her turn behind the camera, catching shots of Pinterest-worthy seascapes; a mélange of exotic fruits; and, of course, a selfie here and there.
As with many 2016-weary social media stars, Rodriguez chose to give her makeup kit a break during the holiday, relying only on RMS Beauty’s “Un” Cover-Up and Lip2Cheek in Rapture to accentuate her Penélope Cruz–like features. “I really like the sunburned look,” Rodriguez confesses of the latter’s earthy red hue.
But, like any true beauty enthusiast, she achieves that look only through the help of product. For when she’s in the sun—surfing, snorkeling, or using volcanic sands as an exfoliating scrub—her first essential is SPF, which she stocks up on in the most unusual of places.
“I found this amazing sunscreen by P20 in the airport in England,” she says. “And now I have to buy it off a weird U.K. camping site.”
Here, Rodriguez shares an exclusive look at her Costa Rican getaway that will have you plotting your own reset in no time.
