"The makeup and hair was insipired by Madonna's Nothing Really Matters Video," makeup arist Jigs Mayuga said of Cristine Reyes' severe pin-straight hair and striking red lips at the OMG! Awards last June 21. The actress was literally black, white and red all over, styled by Pam Quinones in an ivory draped Martin Bautista gown with ebony bandage straps at the back, Jigs painted on the cult-favorite MAC Ruby Woo to pull focus onto her lips and allowing Cristine's alabaster complexion to do the rest.
For those of you who want to try this at home, all you need is some red lippie, and a good skincare routine. Jigs has this to say— "The look is all about luminous skin, strong brows and a bright red lip." So to avoid going overboard he says, "Keep the rest of the makeup simple and subdued."
