We've seen KZ Tandingan pull off some of the boldest beauty looks in the book. Blush draping? Been there. Dark glitter lips? Done that. One thing's for sure—this Filipina singer knows how to stand out both on stage and on camera, rewarding us with amazing makeup selfies in the process.
We know you want in on her secrets, too, so we asked her makeup artist Mac Igarta to reveal how he achieves her picture-perfect lips. See his favorite lip colors to use on KZ below!
1. Pinkish Nude
To give your usual MLBB an upgrade, go for something rosy that's a shade lighter than what you usually opt for. This will instantly make your lips look a little plumper, as if you applied some gloss on top!

2. Muted orange
KZ is all over the peach makeup trend, too! Wear it monochrome like her and pair an orange eyeshadow look with peachy nude lips. You'll seem like you spent hours on your makeup!

If you want to wear neither a nude nor a dark hue, opt for an in-between color like terracotta. The warm undertones of this shade will look especially flattering on warm-toned skin, whether you're fair or tanned.

4. Cool-toned Red
A good red lip is almost foolproof for catching everyone's attention. Go for a vivid, blue-toned red to brighten your complexion and your teeth in photos!

If you're feeling a little bolder than usual, whip out a burgundy or plum-hued lippie for fuller-looking lips. You can blot the excess color off with a tissue for a subtle yet long-lasting stain, like how Mac did on KZ below:
