After months of waiting, the Asia Artist Awards 2023 is finally commencing tomorrow in the afternoon at the Philippine Arena.

That being said, it’s only fitting to envision these artists in creations made by local designers—wishful thinking that we’ll entertain while they’re here. So from established labels to young creatives, we paired these Korean stars with Filipino designers whose designs match their personality and aesthetics.

Wonyoung in Vania Romoff

Vania Romoff is known for her timeless romantic designs, making it an ideal fit for Wonyoung’s natural charm and delicate aura. The designer’s favored use of neutral tones, soft silhouettes, and light fabrics complements the 19 year-old singer’s petite and slender frame, and it will definitely elevate her famous aegyo.

NewJeans in Cheetah Rivera

Bold, playful, and unapoletically feminine there’s no one else better to translate this into clothing than Cheetah Rivera herself. Vivid colors and unconventional silhouettes are often done by the designer—giving femininity a fresh new look. Hence, the pairing with NewJeans since they are known for their daring but youthful style.

Le Sserafim in Martin Bautista

Since this K-Pop girl group is more known for their edgy aesthetic, we would love to see them in Martin Bautista’s alluring and dynamic designs. He frequently experiments with unconventional forms and elevates it with his use in pattern and texture—a fitting match with Le Ssarafim’s versatile style.

Moon Ga Young in Mark Bumgarner

The 27-year-old actress often goes for ensembles that are effortlessly elegant for social events. This is why we matched her with Mark Bumgarner. The designer is a go-to in the local fashion scene if you want to look sophisticated and regal in a modern way, and we see that in how he gracefully constructs his fabrics and his choice of forms in his designs.

ITZY in Jaz Cerezo

Much like Le Sserafim, Itzy would usually opt for edgy styles but it’s done in a darker and mature aesthetic—a look that is up to par with Jaz Cerezo’s creations. She would often make use of classic silhouettes which would be elevated with subtle details as seen on the statement appliques and draping techniques she has on her designs.

BSS in Renz Reyes

From time to time, this sub-unit of SEVENTEEN would opt for a dynamic style when they would do their own promotions. From patterned suits to bright hued coordinates, the trio is quite flexible when it comes to their wardrobe, and it would go well with Renz Reyes’ designs specifically his signature deconstructed denim pieces.

Ahn Hyo Seop in Nicolo Perez

We’re giving the 28-year-old actor a laid-back outfit this time around because of his relaxed nature. Although Nicolo Perez is known for his playful patterns across button-downs, when it comes to semi-formal wear, the designer balances it with a monochromatic color palette—a look we’d want to see Ahn Hyo Seop in.

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.

Hollywood glamor

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.

First Base

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.

NEW BASE ALT 1
Filipino beauty brands have great formulations that work best in our climate

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.

BASE 2 ALT NEW
Cream-to-powder formulas also work best if you want a long-lasting but natural finish

Eye-To-Eye

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.

NEW EYES ALT 1
When putting on makeup for a formal event, we recommend using water-proof and budge-proof products to ensure that they will last all night

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.

NEW LIPS ALT 1
Don’t forget to line your lips before putting on lipstick to avoid it from smearing

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.

Expert Tips

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.

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.

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 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.”
