The artists behind the standout beauty looks of our trailblazing cover stars let us in on how to recreate them at home.
1. BLYTHE’S SAMPAGUITA LOOK
Known for always painting the skin with a glass-glow finish, up-and-coming makeup artist Raffy So created Blythe’s sampaguita-inspired look by playing with touches of dried flowers on the temples. Starting with mint green eyeshadow that intensified in each layout, the cool hues of her pretty peepers made her bubblegum pink hair pop even more all while keeping the cheeks slightly flushed and the lips smitten.
2. KAKIE’S SAINTLY BEAUTY
Not one to shy away from daring looks, experimental makeup artist Sylvina Lopez, better known as Slo, transforms Kakie, the girl with the golden tear, into a modern saint and rococo muse. Skin is kept on a bare minimum—dewy and opalescent while the eyes are bedazzled with rhinestones on the inner corner on top of a red metallic base.
3. KOKOY’S SUN-BEAM GLOW
Can we please talk about the moreno skin of Kokoy De Santos? Victor Loong, known for his beauty looks with theatrical flair, keeps it simple by highlighting the actor’s bronze skin with intense skincare prep, a summer-ready flush sweeping across his face, faux freckles, and a contrast of white eyeliner.
4. YANYAN’S GLITTERATI GAZE
The TikTok superstar veers away from his go-to glam and goes for a fiercer look with the help of make up artist and standout drag queen in the local scene, Min Ortiz. Inspired by Miley Cyrus’ 80s disco eyes in her music video for Midnight Sky, Yanyan’s purple-sequinned gaze is show-stopping, unforgettable and easy to re-create with careful pats of glitter on the lids.
