We all know that Regine Velasquez can belt her heart out and hit the right notes, but music aside, we can also learn a few things from this recording superstar in the beauty arena. And since Asia’s Songbird turns 45 today, we’re feeling a little nostalgic! From the red lip to the rockstar look, let’s take a trip down memory lane and score tips from her past album covers.
MY LOVE EMOTION (1995)
(Jungle Red lipstick, NARS; Undercover Pot, Laura Mercier; Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown)
1995 became a rollercoaster ride of emotions with Regine’s heartfelt love songs. But if there’s one thing that’s been made clear, it’s that the songbird can pull off the red lip trick. In her album, My Love Emotion, the singer sported a bold red pout and flaunted her youthful glow with fair, even skin tone.

Four years later, the music star debuted a brand new album with an edgy twist in the beauty department. Fronting R2K was a rockstar donning shoulder-grazing tresses with a piercing look in her smokey, smoldering eyes.

LOW KEY (2008)
(LipSurgence in Lucky, Tarte; Brightening Brick in Pastel Pink, Bobbi Brown; Soft Velvet Loose Powder in Beach, NARS)
After her previous bold and edgy covers, Regine Velasquez surprised her fans by going low key in 2008 while showing off her pixie cut. The look? Au naturel! The singer showcased her naturally radiant skin with barely-there makeup and just a little hint of blush.

In 2010, she turned the volume up a notch with a more dolled-up look. For her Fantasy album, Asia’s Songbird matched her damp hair with glossy puckers, filled-in brows, and well-contoured cheekbones. All waterproof, we bet!
