Her bright red pout and strong brow game might be her signature look whenever she’s on Yaya Dub mode for Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye, but for Preview’s November issue, Maine Mendoza was all about warm, dewy skin. Makeup artist Owen Sarmiento takes us through Maine’s transformation with Lana Del Rey as the beauty peg.
Any beauty junkie would know that having clear, flawless skin is the key to any makeup look. Owen prepped Maine’s skin using MAC’s Lightful Softening Lotion to tone and refresh her face. Next, he boosted the hydration by gently misting her face with Clinique’s Moisture Surge Free Face Spray. He then applied La Mer’s The Radiant Serum all over her face then topped it off with moisturizing cream. Adding more moisture to the eyes, he used MAC’s Fast Response Eye Cream to reduce puffiness and then coated her lips with Carmex moisturizing lip balm.
II. Primer, Foundation, Concealer, & Powder
For the primer, Owen used MAC’s Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Cream in Adjust to even out Maine’s skin tone, concentrating only on her mouth, the corners of the nose, and her temples, before applying Strobe Cream on the high points of her face for added sheen and dimension.
For the foundation, Owen used Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Skin Foundation in Shade 6, then with the help of Marc Jacobs’s Re(Marc)able Concealer in Young, he covered up the dark circles under Maine's eyes. He then set the concealer with Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder in #1 and dusted on Makeup Forever’s Pro Bronze Fusion to warm up and balance her skin tone. He topped it off with Laura Mercier’s Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic, dusted on the high points of her face for that radiant glow.
III. Eyes, Cheeks & Lips
For Maine's eyes, he applied MAC’s Paint Pot in Painterly all over her lids, adding a coat of Makeup Forever’s Artist Shadow in Sahara. Next, he applied Makeup Forever’s Artist Shadow in Gray Beige on the crease while working in MAC’s eyeshadow in All That Glitters on the outer corners of her eyes. He finished it off with a stroke of Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Eyeliner in Black Ink to create a sleek wing tip, and then lightly filled in the gaps of her brows with feather strokes of MAC’s Brow Pencil in Lingering.
Bringing in more warmth to her face, he applied MAC’s Extra Dimension Blush in Bareness just right on the apples of her cheeks. He completed the look by swiping MAC’s lip pencil in Fruit Cocktail all over the lips, switching it up with Sushi Kiss and Flamingo in between layouts.
