Makeup Secrets from Celebrities for 2019

With hundreds of women making names for themselves as beauty bloggers/vloggers, and tons of new and innovative products hitting the shelves every month, there’s no better time in history to be a makeup lover. Makeup is an art form and a skill, and like any art it’s always best to learn from the masters. While every woman has her own unique way of “putting on her face,” there’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from some of the most famous faces in the Philippines. Take a look below at the makeup looks of some of Manila’s leading celebrities, and see if you can pick up a few useful tips along the way.


Heart Evangelista
Everyone in the Philippines knows Heart Evangelista, the stunning Chinese-Filipina actress who has been part of some of the most successful teleseryes and films from the year 2000 onwards. Heart’s style is more high fashion, and she’s a familiar face in the audience during Paris and New York fashion weeks. To mimic her soft glam style, go for shimmery highlights and thick black lashes, and don’t forget to put on some blush for that rosy-cheeked look.

Pia Wurtzbach
If there’s ever been a perfect example of a beauty leading the way, that’s Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015 and recently awarded UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for Asia and the Pacific. Pia’s looks tend to favor strong brows and sun-kissed skin, with key highlighted features being her eyes, cheekbones, and jawline. If you’re aiming to mimic this look, try picking up a good bronzer, some warm-toned highlighter, and stick with earthy tones for your eyeshadow.

Julia Barretto
As one half of one of the most popular love teams in the industry today along with partner Joshua Garcia, Julia Barretto has been a mainstay in Philippine film and television for the last couple of years, with ABS-CBN stating she is seeing new projects coming in left and right. Capture the essence of a young girl in love by mimicking Julia’s bright red matte lipstick and warm, orangey-red eyeshadow. Avoid “overloading” your look by going easy on your brows— just apply some brow gel and let your natural shape do the talking. Check out the rest of her style on her Instagram account here.


Heaven Peralejo

Heaven Peralejo is an ambassador for Filipino denim wear company BNY Jeans, and has a style that epitomizes the young, modern Filipina perfectly. Heaven’s looks are youthful and light, although she isn’t afraid of glamming it up, so a focus on keeping your skin healthy and supple is important. Go for a more natural look with your brows by brushing them up and outward, with some eyebrow pencil and gel for definition. Keep it light and refreshing with some black mascara, lip and cheek tint, and highlight for a “bare face” look that’s perfect for school and play.

Nadine Lustre

Nadine Lustre has taken on nothing but lead roles since her rise to fame, and the young actress is such a lover of makeup that she even has her own makeup line, Lustrous, in partnership with Australian brand BYS. Cop Nadine’s look above by opting for warmer, more natural tones. Go easy on the contour, focusing mostly on your cheekbones and using a natural-looking highlight for the rest of your features. Shine with gold shimmer eyeshadow and coral lip gloss, and finish off with a youthful blush over your cheeks and nose bridge.
