5 Movies That Honor Jaclyn Jose’s Versatility in Acting
Jaclyn Jose was an actress who anchored her craft on her versatility and natural style of portrayal
Today, Filipinos are grieving a great loss in Philippine show business. Award-winning actress Jaclyn Jose passed away yesterday, as confirmed by her management PPL Entertainment. She would have turned 60 this year. Until her passing, she played Chief Dolores Espinas in FPJ’s Batang Quiapo.
In her four decades as an actress, Jose established her distinct style in attacking her numerous roles. It had been her trademark to elicit emotion without actually showing expressions, especially through her eyes. According to the actress herself, her deadpan or no-acting method was a deliberate decision of hers. “I really wanted it that way, para mas tagos,” she said in an interview. “Gusto ko malalim siya.”
In honor of the illustrious actress’ contribution to show business, here are five movies that prove Jaclyn Jose’s versatility in the roles that she played over the years
Dead acting comes alive
Patay Na Si Hesus opens with Jose’s showcase of her trademark acting style. One would expect some news about death to be delivered with utter shock or implied sadness. But with Jaclyn’s casual tone, having none of the usual emotions tied to the situation present at hand, she proved that less was truly more. In the realm of dark comedy, the actress definitely earned her place.
A thriller attack on her craft
The award-winning artist also had her own take on the loud acting style, as exhibited by her role as Mowie in “Anino” from the horror anthology film series Shake, Rattle & Roll V. Haunted by a shadow figure, she starred alongside Sheryl Cruz in the episode.
Adding a punch of romantic comedy
Showcasing her comedic timing while keeping her dramatic side in check, Jose also starred in the 2015 film, The Prenup. In her role as Sam Milby’s mother, she was able to play with her own emotions and experiences in her true to life matriarch role.
Twisting reality with fantasy and laughs
When an actress takes her craft seriously, that doesn’t mean taking on serious roles only. Jaclyn proved that her dramatic side also fit well into mainstream comedy such as Vice Ganda’s 2018 Metro Manila Festival entry, Fantastica. She played as comedian’s mother, Fec, and even had a comical yet brief breaking the fourth wall moment that you shouldn’t miss.
The award-winning indie experience
Finally, it would be remiss to talk about Jaclyn Jose’s without the mention of her considered magnum opus, Ma Rosa. Her matriarchal role earned her Best Actress accolade at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and being the first Southeast Asian actress to achieve this distinction. Jose underscored the movie’s impact in her life as she starred alongside her daughter, Andi Eigenmann, in the Brillante Mendoza drama piece.

How to Recreate Liza Soberano’s 2024 SAG Awards Look Using Filipino Beauty Brands
Still reeling from Liza Soberano’s glam look at the SAG Awards? MEGA lists down the makeup products from Filipino brands that have similar shades and finishes
While dressed in a splendid Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2024 ensemble and ornamented with Le Vian Jewelry, Liza Soberano cemented her place in Hollywood with her first-ever attendance of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. From her charming red carpet interviews to her GLAMbot appearance, it’s safe to say that the actress made an impact, with help from wardrobe stylist Maeve Reilly, makeup artist Melissa Hernandez, and hairstylist Renz Pangilinan. If you’re still as enamored by Liza’s glam look as we are, here are the details you need to know to recreate it.

Notably, Melissa Hernandez is a makeup artist under The Wall Group who routinely works with Hollywood celebrities, like Olivia Rodrigo and Sydney Sweeney. For the Lisa Frankenstein actress, the makeup artist opted for a soft glam look that would subtly enhance Liza’s natural beauty. She also revealed in an Instagram post that she used Maybelline products to achieve it. If you don’t have the actual Maybelline products in hand, we also listed alternatives from Filipino makeup brands.
For Liza’s base, blush, bronzer, and highlight, Melissa used the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in 310, Instant Age Rewind Eraser in Medium, Cheek Heat in Fuchsia Spark, Lasting Fix Banana Powder, City Bronzer in Medium, and Master Chrome in Molten Gold.
For Filipino makeup, to perfect your complexion and add an alluring flush, look to Teviant Beauty’s The Ultimate Skin Master Foundation in Trench, Lucky Beauty’s Ethereal Liquid Pigment in Poppy, and Issy’s Active Concealer in MW2.
For powder contour, loose powder, and highlight, check out Vice Cosmetics’ Aura So Sculpted in Toasty Cocoa, BarenBliss’s Soul-Matte Loose Powder in Medium Mango Sorbet, and Strokes Cosmetics’ Face Flash in Gold Rush.
As for Liza’s eye makeup, Melissa used The City Mini eyeshadow palette in Rooftop Bronzes, Master Precise liquid eyeliner in Brown, and The Falsies Lash Lift mascara.
For local alternatives, you can look to DAZZLE ME’s World Traveler Eyeshadow Palette in Arabian Nights for the gorgeous brown shades and gold shimmers, plus Happy Skin’s Generation Happy Skin Pretty Easy Budge-Proof Liquid Eyeliner in Brown and blk Cosmetics’s Daydream False Lash Waterproof Mascara to enhance your eyes.
Kiss and Tell
To complete the makeup look, she then applied Color Sensational in Magnetic Mauve to line her lips and the Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Achieve It All. Meanwhile, Liza’s eyebrows were kept natural-looking and brushed up, so you can use whatever products you like to tame your own into shape.
For a similar-looking result to Liza’s lip look at the SAG Awards, you can check out GRWM Cosmetics’ Lip Contour in Ann and Happy Skin’s Off Duty Lip Cloud Matte Lipstick in Honeymoon Glow. Both have matte finishes and result in a pinkish-mauve hue.
Altogether, the products worked to make Liza ready to face the flashing lights and shutters of the cameras on the red carpet. These particular products are also effective yet uncomplicated to use, so anyone from beginners to beauty experts can rely on them to look good.

That said, it’s important to remember that since they are mattifying, it’s best to prep your skin with moisturizing products to make sure the products cling to the skin properly. And since the desired effect is a soft and subtle glam, it’s best to use as little product as possible. Go easy on the cream product and blend until your complexion looks flawless and apply the powder products where you need them most.
Like Liza, apply your bronzer on the hollows of your cheeks, your jawline, and close to your hairline to add some depth and dimension to your face. For a subtle enhancement, the metallic highlighter was also kept to the high points of Liza’s face and applied with a light hand, so it’s best to do the same on your cheeks, inner corners, brow bone, and nose. The star of this look is the soft brown cat eye, light matte eyeshadow, and matte lips.

Angel Aquino Finally Reveals the Secret to Her Timeless Beauty
Learn more about the award-winning actress’ refreshing approach to skincare that nourishes both the skin and the mind
This is an excerpt from MEGA March 2024 Main Beauty story.
With a profile that has been turning heads since the ’90s, Angel Aquino continues to be a timeless-beauty muse to many. Her secret? Embracing a skin-first beauty philosophy. “Clean skin is my best makeup,” she tells MEGA. “If I have good skin, I feel confident and I don’t have to put so much makeup on. I just like to keep it clean, hydrated, and protected, and then I’m ready.”

As for the key to a youthful gaze? One of her most trusted makeup artists, Muriel Vega Perez, explained “The skin around the eyes is more delicate than in other areas of your face and body—the exact reason why it needs more care.” He continues, “Application of non-comedogenic under eye creams and hydrating masks can benefit many. Apart from that, the right treatment can be more face-changing.”
The key to positive aging? “Just try to tiptoe your way to aging, handle it as graciously and gracefully as you can,” Angel Aquino says. “Yes, aging is inevitable. But be mindful enough to tell yourself that what truly matters are the lives that you are going to touch today, the differences that you can make, and if you can make somebody smile and feel good today. That’s what you should count and not the years that go by.”
The mind-skin connection
The skin often reflects what’s going on below the surface, like a canvas that communicates the intricacies of our mental well-being. “I used to take myself too seriously and I decided—f*ck it!” Angel confesses. “I just want to have fun, I want to know fun, I want to live fun, and I guess that translates to my overall aura—it becomes more youthful. Overall, it’s the mindset.”
