If you sense some excitement in the air, that’s because of #StarMagicBall2017. It’s one of the biggest nights in local entertainment. But do I really need to brief you about it? What you’re here for is to see how everyone survived the weekend traffic, got through their last-minute preparations, and the excitement to make it all look effortless on the red carpet. That’s why it’s called magic, I suppose.

So how did they do it exactly? Let’s take a look.

#1 Get the best in skincare

Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil dropped by Dra. Victoria Belo’s Presidential Suite-turned-clinic to get the ultimate in beauty preps. Piolo Pascual also got his SuperVitamin Drip for the big night.

#2 Don’t sweat the traffic

Alice Dixson snapped some selfies while on the #RoadtoStarMagicBall. It’s useless to let the stress get to you and ruin a good night, anyway.

#3 Assemble your glam team

As expected, Kathryn Bernardo has got her whole glam team working perfectly to get the look right. Remember, whatever you see on the red carpet is never a one-man job.

#4 Make sure your outfit is on-point

Ogie Alcasid snapped a photo of the dress his daughter Leila Alcasid will wear to the big night. It pays to get things settled beforehand and having a cheerleader for the look.

Your stylist has got to be at his best as well. See how Ryan Viloria has got the outfits of his clients like Sam Milby and Daniel Padilla filed neatly.

#5 Fuel up

The adrenaline can burn the food and your energy fast. Take cues from Richard Gutierrez who snapped a photo of son Zion eating a snack.

#6 Always have options

Over on his Instagram Stories, celebrity stylist Jake Galvez showed off the lipstick choices he’s got on deck for tonight’s ball.

On the other hand, Sarah Lahbati showed off how she’s got a drawer full of shoe options for tonight. How to ever choose in these situations?

#7 Don’t forget to reminisce

Dawn Zulueta posted a throwback to her look last year. Other than sentimental value, it also reminds you of the standard you have to top this time around.

#8 Always make new memories

Before going through the other preps, Kira Balinger snapped a photo with Scarlet Snow Belo and Dra. Vicki. You should savor these moments too!

The same thing was in the minds of Elisse Joson’s and Jessy Mendiola as they each took a quiet moment before everything happens.

#9 Station your chosen designer nearby

Celebrity fashion designer Mark Bumgarner checked in earlier to make sure everything goes smoothly. This is it, after all, so one must get all the details right.

#10 Don’t miss out on the main point of it all

Beyond all the Instagram worthy moments, Star Magic Ball 2017 is also about raising awareness and support. This year’s ball is set to help out the scholars of Bantay Bata.
