Don’t get us wrong, we love a good highlighter, but the sun leaves us quite a little bit too dewy already. It can also be tricky to wear highlighter when you’re having your photo taken. Flash can either make or break your highlight. That’s why we’re considering a matte look as seen on Liza Soberano for her recent TV appearance.
Since Liza is still young, it’s great that she doesn’t like strong makeup that looks like she piled a lot of products on. She’s still about the healthy, flushed look. It seems effortless but it also works for her TV appearance—which means it’ll work for us during nights out with some flash photography involved.
Cop the same look with these products.
I waited so long for this formulation to hit our shores after seeing the great reviews it got online. When I got my hands on the squeezy tube, it didn’t disappoint. Dab this product where you need it, blend evenly with just your fingers and you’ll get lightweight but full coverage. Available at The SM Store, Makati.
Forgo the brightening concealer for this one. What you want is just an even skin tone, concealing what needs to be for a coherent and even tone. But don’t touch a cream concealer especially if you have dry under eyes. Reach for something moisturizing to avoid enhancing fine lines like this gel formula to hydrate your under eye area. Available via SephoraPH.
If you need a fine powder that will both set your foundation and prevent oil from breaking through, this powder just might be what you need. Apply it with a light hand as it can look cakey. When in doubt, spray on a setting mist after you place the powder so it sinks into the skin a bit more. Available at SM City North EDSA.
As mentioned earlier, Liza went for a barely there look. Foregoing contouring and highlighting, she kept her face lively with a light shade of pink that best complements her skin tone. It’s all about that natural flush that’s not glittery or too bright. Available at Bonifacio Central Square.
You can be a little extreme with the eyelashes for this look as everything else isn’t flashy. In this heat, it pays to go for a waterproof formulation that holds a curl and gives you length. False lashes, optional. Available at select Watson’s branches.
Try to match your nude lip shade with the pink found in your blush. This makes sure your lips aren’t washed out but neither overpower the look. If you’re worried that this liquid matte lip can be drying, don’t you worry. The formulation has got aloe vera and argan oil to keep lips soft and flake-free. Available via Beauty MNL.
