Whether it’s fashion or beauty, Nadine Lustre’s been known to try bold and daring trends. But this time, she bares it all with the least makeup for her first NYLON Manila cover shoot.
When you think about Nadine Lustre, the word “strong” would be an understatement. More than her fearlessness, she tells us that being vulnerable takes more courage than being brave.
In a world where everyone expects her to be calculated and well-curated, she will always find ways to be unpredictable. Just like how she wore almost no makeup for a cover shoot.
The line from rapper Kendrick Lamar’s award-winning hit, HUMBLE comes to mind: “I’m so f*cking sick and tired of the photoshop, show me something natural…” Even if she looks every bit the goddess in every Instagram post, the thing with Nadine Lustre is, she isn’t afraid to go bare.
Less is definitely more as she traded contouring for a dewy, barely there base that’s almost like second skin, longer eyelashes for shorter, more natural-looking ones that match her own, and of course, her signature pout. You can bare your best skin, too, just like Nadine. Her skincare routine? Oh you know, nothing but the best from her perfect fit, the natural and sustainable line from Bioten. All hail, Godine Lustre!
But why did Lady Luster suddenly have a change of heart? As a makeup mogul in the making, this could be looked at not only as a power move, but a step forward in breaking beauty standards and stereotypes on how females should present themselves to society—especially living in today’s perfection-obsessed generation, catching sight of the next wrong move. Nadine Lustre is taking us on a journey, and things are just about to unfold in the next coming days.
