Red carpet events always bring in a whole lot of glamour from head-to-toe, and this year’s Star Magic Ball was no exception. Topping off some of the stars’ black and white evening frocks (or rather, champagne for those who broke the rule book!) were looks worth the double take. Instead of settling for the fail-proof red carpet makeup, these ladies delved right into the playful side of beauty, as they gave the latest trends a test drive.
Look who nailed it below!
1. Glass Skin
Echoing her celebrity status, Bea Alonzo looked every bit of a classic last night. To go with her elegant Monique Lhuillier gown, she opted for a clean and glowing look, which reminded us of the coveted Korean trend: “glass” skin. This beauty trend basically refers to a poreless, well-hydrated and translucent complexion–care of good skincare as opposed to highlight.
2. Purple Highlight
Leila Alcasid didn’t fail to create a statement on her first Star Magic Ball. A surprising touch of iridescent purple highlight gleamed along her cheekbones, offering a dose of quirk to her sunkissed glow. We recently spotted this unconventional highlight on Rihanna, and it looked just as good on Leila!
3. Silver Foil Leaves
Surprise, surprise! Coleen Garcia dressed up her classic chignon with a rather uncommon hair accessory: silver foil leaves. The metallic foil was intricately placed near the bun, delivering a cool, futuristic feel on her back. Last July, Cara Delevingne also sported the high-impact embellishment on the streets. And now, this look on Coleen further solidifies its wearability–especially on the red carpet!
