As the actress celebrates her new milestone with the launch of her own brand, we look back at her most recent looks that proved she is a true beauty chameleon
“Earliest memory ko is nagmamakeup ako, nagpapaganda ako sa mga customer namin kahit bibili lang naman sila ng gamot,” Andrea Brillantes recalled her beauty beginnings. The young icon, who recently turned 20, matured to become one of the most influential celebrities in the industry. But another admirable factor about the young star is her long penchant for makeup. “It’s a part of me, it’s my passion alongside acting,” she adds.
Fans have witnessed her grow up from a charming child star to an exceptional woman. And now, she takes on a new role as the brain behind Lucky Beauty. “Makeup is a wearable lucky charm.” She shared that she wanted to impart the same feeling of magic to beauty enthusiasts. The word “luck” might be embedded in the brand’s name, but it’s her passion and hardworking nature that turned her dream into reality. “Pinag-isipan ko talaga lahat ng bagay. Ganu’n po ako mag-alaga sa mga produkto ko, ganu’n ko sila pinagbibigyan ng halaga.”
As she celebrates her new milestone, what better time than now to revisit some of her best hair and makeup moments? Below, we explore Andrea Brillantes’ most notable looks that proved she is a true beauty icon in the making.
It’s undeniable that the brand’s beauty moodboard is equal parts dreamy and dainty. Here, her makeup is kept minimal with a radiant base and a hint of blush. Standout detail? Her glossy lips. Of course, it’s courtesy of the Lucky Beauty Dewy Lip Stain. A swipe easily renders a long-lasting stain with a smooth, full, and hydrated finish. Add your own take on the look and opt for a lip shade that works like a charm for you.
“On to the next chapter,” the star captioned as she welcomed her 20s. In recent times, she showcased her most-anticipated birthday shoot with the help of BJ Pascual, Eldzs Meija, Carla Alberto, Marben Talanay, and Aries Manal. The first look is an homage to the allure of retro beauty with a play on a half-up beehive hairstyle and floral accents. A notable mention also includes her baby blue lids, which encapsulated the 70s feel.
Apart from that, she also debuted her interpretation of full black leather ensembles. For this one, her colored palette was tempered down to a series of browns. Her long-time beauty signature can’t be left unmentioned either. After all, her fluffed eyebrows are a perennial inspiration in the makeup department.
The right beauty detail can add a creative twist to a modern glam look—just take a cue from Andrea Brillantes. For her MEGA June 2022 cover shoot, celebrity makeup artist Jake Galvez paired her metallic lids with a graphic feline click for a cut crease look that makes a statement. Elsewhere, a swipe of a flattering cherry-hued lip shade completed her overall look. Elevate it by opting for a lip product with a lacquer finish.
Rewinding back to 2021, Blythe embodied the essence of a goddess for her 18th birthday shoot. The actress took to her social media to unveil her breathtaking photos by her team including Cha Lico, Aren Dale Santos, Eldzs Meija, Carla Alberto, Marben Talanay, and Mark Familara. It’s fair to say that this style is her most transformative look, delivering a play on glistening skin, hydrated lips, colored brows, and dramatic long hair.
As mentioned previously, it’s tradition for a celebrity to get reimagined in a blonde format. In a shoot with BJ Pascual, the actress encapsulated a modern Hollywood beauty with an unexpected blonde hair edit. It served as a refreshing break from the oscillation between her usual black and deep brown spectrum. Elsewhere, celebrity makeup artist Marben Talanay embraced a classic glam beauty direction with a soft cut crease and plumped lips.
