If you’re meeting with that special someone or just going on a night out, serve a flawless face with the tips and makeup must-haves of Pau Pelaez.
If you’ve ever wondered why your makeup doesn’t look like the beauty filter IRL, you’re not alone. Achieving a picture-perfect appearance as seen on social media can be challenging, primarily due to our pores and skin texture (which are totally normal, BTW). But wait, that doesn’t mean you can’t serve a flawless face. From one beauty girlie to another, it’s all about the base.
Out of all the mistakes you can make, messing with your cream products-powder-setting spray routine is the worst. Apart from the application itself, the real test comes in how the makeup wears—and whether it stays or separates throughout the day. But don’t worry, we asked our on-call beauty content creator, Pau Pelaez, for her life-proof makeup must-haves. Here’s what she had to share.
ONE/SIZE Secure the Blur Makeup Magnet Primer
Primer plays an essential role in any makeup routine, serving as the foundational step for achieving a flawless look. And, according to Pau Pelaez, the ONE/SIZE Secure the Sweat Primer is the perfect product for creating a smooth canvas. What sets this primer apart is its ability to make makeup sweat-proof, ensuring it stays in place throughout the day. It also effectively controls shine, making it ideal for those with oily and naturally sweaty skin. The content creator swears by this primer for its capacity to extend makeup longevity, maintain a flawless look, and reduce the need for touch-ups.
A little disclaimer, though: this product isn’t beginner-friendly. As she puts it, ‘kailangan masanay muna kasi kakaibang primer siya, kailangan gamayin, pero pag natutunan mo gamitin grabe talaga siya.’ Tip: Pat or press it into the skin. Avoid rubbing, and allow it to dry for one minute before applying makeup.
HUDA BEAUTY #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Liquid Foundation
If you’re looking for a foundation that ticks all the boxes, HUDA BEAUTY’s #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Liquid Foundation is a must-try product according to Pau Pelaez. A standout feature of this foundation is its ability to make your skin look luminous without compromising on matte coverage. It is also formulated with skincare ingredients to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. For the beauty content creator, what she loves most about this product is its thin consistency, which makes it the perfect choice for her skin texture.
ONE/SIZE Ultimate Blurring Setting Powder
The ONE/SIZE Ultimate Blurring Setting Powder is a game-changer that Pau can’t stop raving about. This setting powder combines the best of both worlds, offering remarkable blurring capabilities and a featherlight texture that effortlessly sets makeup for a flawless, long-lasting finish. Designed to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, it leaves the skin looking smooth and airbrushed—a dream come true for those seeking a picture-perfect complexion. The content creator has seamlessly incorporated this powder into her makeup routine, and for good reason; it’s a revelation that’s redefining the possibilities when you choose the right products for your makeup stash.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder is a makeup essential that has found its way into the beauty routine of makeup enthusiasts worldwide, including Pau Pelaez. This finely-milled, translucent powder is the ultimate secret weapon for setting makeup in place, blurring imperfections, and delivering a soft-focus finish. Its lightweight texture ensures a comfortable wear, making it perfect for all-day events or photo shoots, and this content creator is no stranger to such situations.
She says, “Ito ‘yung product na kahit maubos yung pera ko, bibilhin ko pa rin. Sinasabi ko na lang sa sarili ko, baka babalik naman siguro yung pera kasi worth it talaga ‘tong powder.“
ONE/SIZE ON ‘TIL DAWN Mattifying Waterproof Setting Spray
The final step in Chikana’s makeup routine revolves around the ONE/SIZE ON ‘TIL DAWN Mattifying Waterproof Setting Spray. This high-end setting spray is a game-changer for anyone seeking a long-lasting, matte finish.
