In case you missed it, Ivana Alawi is Preview's cover girl for the month of October! The actress and YouTube sensation looked ethereal in her Fernando Amorsolo painting-inspired photos shot by BJ Pascual. The idea of the shoot was also influenced by Ivana's viral video—yes, that one where she's doing laundry!
The cover shoot's concept required a lot of sheer, all-white outfits. Meanwhile, in the beauty department, a "no-makeup" makeup look was a must. Celebrity makeup artist Anthea Bueno documented the entire process on her YouTube channel so we can cop Ivana's barely-there glam at home. Keep scrolling for all the pro tips you need, plus the exact beauty products she wore on the cover!
Since the focus of a "no-makeup" makeup look is the base, the makeup artist stresses the importance of hydrating the skin beforehand. For Ivana's look, she cleansed Ivana's skin with micellar water, which she explains is gentler on the skin than most toners. She then applied hydrating face mist, face oil, eye cream, lip balm, and makeup primer to further plump the skin and prepare it for product application.

One of Anthea's tricks for that glowing finish is putting on a liquid illuminator underneath foundation. She also avoids using heavy powders to maintain that natural skin look, opting for sheer formulas to set Ivana's base makeup including other steps like contouring. In general, the key is to work slowly and in thin layers, and blend, blend, blend!

You won't believe how simple the eye makeup for this look is! Anthea only used neutral colors like cream, browns, and champagne-colored eyeshadows on Ivana's eyelids. Instead of liquid eyeliner, she tightlined Ivana's eyes with a pencil (which she also used to draw a wing later on) and just finished off with mascara for some defintion. Right before the shoot, the makeup artist just pressed some lacquer on the eyelids for a subtle glossy eye effect.

To create an effortless nude lip, the makeup artist lined Ivana's pout with a lip liner to perfect its shape. On top of that went a hydrating lipstick with a light-reflecting finish—no gloss needed!
