Far from her on-stage beauty, Loisa Andalio was all about the soft glow on MEGA’s August cover. We talked to makeup artist extraordinaire, Jelly Eugenio, about the look he created. There were no signs of heavy foundation or dramatic eyeliner. Everything was kept light. As she was decked out in a dainty Mark Bumgarner creation, the actress had a dreamy flush to match. It was the kind that reminds us of a post-workout face, sans the sweat. What was left are blushing cheeks that radiate freshness. Luckily, you don’t need to go for a jog or to sunbathe, all it takes is a little twist in your routine and warm, blushing products to achieve the flush.
Here’s how you can cop Loisa’s dreamy look:
1. Do your eye makeup.
For the eyes, go for a soft, peach shade and add a hint of sparkle on the center of the lids for added charm. Match it with bushy, soft combed brows to look extra-whimsy. P.S. Doing the eye makeup before prepping the skin makes it easier to clean any fallout.
2. Keep the base light and dewy.
Prep the skin with a light reflecting serum to keep the face looking fresh. Since Loisa naturally has good skin, Jelly only used a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. The goal was just to even out her complexion.
3. Apply the blush right after foundation.
Before setting the base with powder, sweep the EVER BILENA Cheek Blush in Raisin (PHP 175) on the cheeks. This will allow the blush to really stick to the skin, creating a pinched cheek effect. For Loisa, the blush was placed on the apple of her cheeks and her lower cheeks (almost beside the mouth). It’s the secret to a faux post-workout flush.
4. Don’t over highlight.
According to Jelly, highlighting has become an overly hyped trend. People keep applying it on areas that don’t even need it. Since the actress has prominent cheeks, her highlight was only subtle, as overdoing it will only accentuate her cheeks.
5. Go for a nude pout.
Finish off the look with a swipe of EVER BILENA Sexy Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick (PHP 195) on the lips, which has a dreamy mauve shade. Apply a layer of gloss for a plumper-looking pout.
