Over the weekend, the Star Magic Ball brought the biggest and brightest Filipino stars together, and we could not wait to scan the red carpet! Naturally, the place was studded with gorgeous neutral gowns and swoon-worthy arm candy. But no look was complete without the flawless hair and makeup, so without further ado, here are our 10 favorites of the night!
Bea’s look was as eye-catching as the bowtie of her dress. She rocked brushed brows, dramatic eye makeup, and pinkish-bronze blush on the hollows of her cheeks. The perfect feminine touch? Her gloss-glazed lips, which softened the entire look.
One word: royalty. Kim’s romantic updo reminded us of something Emily Blunt or Reese Witherspoon would do for the Oscars. Her face was painted and powdered with soft shades of pink, which made her ivory skin look luminous.
Lilac lids, a pink pout, and luxurious wavy locks brought out Liza’s doll-like features. And that dress! It reminded us of our favorite princesses with that ball skirt and delicate embroidered flowers.
We think Coleen Garcia struck just the right balance. Vixen curls? Check. Ingenue makeup? Check. With the soft pink pout and smokey brown eye, this fearless femme proved you can look sassy and innocent at the same time.
Janella Salvador kept her look youthful with a nude lip, flicked lids, and a simple chignon. She was serving us fairytale-fresh!
Alex Gonzaga seems to have taken a cue from the VMAs this year with that sultry, caramel-nude lipstick. The rest of her makeup was a study in earth tones, anchored by those vampy eyes and offset by her stark white pantsuit.
Half-Pinay model on-the-rise Kelsey Merritt gave us a refreshing break from the sea of white. Her floor-length black gown was the most elegant brand of simple—after all, who needs embellishment when you’re that gorgeous? She paired the dress with fresh, natural, dewy makeup that made us think of a ’60s siren.
