Have a date lined up for Valentine’s Day? Here are five looks from Filipino makeup artists and hairstylists you can take inspiration from for the special day
Love is in the air. Let romance emanate in even your beauty details by taking your cue from these celebrity beauty looks executed by top Filipino makeup artists and hairstylists. Here, you’ll find inspiration for different approaches to soft glam looks and elevated classics that you can replicate from home for your special day.
Kiss-proof red lips
You can’t go wrong with a red lippy for the season of love. Here, makeup artist Anthea Bueno used a high-shine red lacquer on actress Barbie Imperial, while hairstylist Jay Aquino kept her hair in loose waves. Complement this look with golden highlights strategically placed on the high points of your face and a bright pink blush to accentuate the apples of your cheeks. It’s a low-maintenance look suitable for romantic dates in the city—just bring your trusted powder and lip lacquer for any touch-ups.
This hair and makeup look on artist and YouTuber Riva Quenery by Marben Talanay is perfect for a night of dancing and drinking with your partner. The siren eyes, accentuated with wispy lashes and brown eyeshadow, make for an alluring eye makeup, while the tidy curtain bangs and high ponytail seal the deal. This look goes well with matte lips in any deep shade, like ruby red or brick-brown.
There’s no better time to hop on the ribbons and bows trend than for Valentine’s Day. This hair and makeup look by Kiel Otilla and Angeline Tan would be especially great for midday dates. You can mimic it by using the blush layering process, with a cream blush as the base, a powder blush to set, and a highlighter to top it all off. Similar to Douyin makeup, the eyes are defined with wispy lashes, a soft brown wing, and glitter on the inner corners and bottom lash line.
A makeup look replicable for even beginners is latte makeup, where you rely more on bronzer and brown hues for a coordinated appearance. Here, makeup artist Mark Kingson Qua used monochrome colors and a nude lip for an elevated approach. Meanwhile, hairstylist Renz Pangilinan curled Elisse Josonn’s hair and tied half of it back with a wide white bow—perfect for the helpless romantics on Valentine’s Day.
Subtle and stripped down
Another more low-maintenance and understated beauty look you can go for is this one done by makeup artist Denise Go Ochoa and hairstylist Jay Wee on actress Jane De Leon. Here, her hair is kept wavy yet tidy and interspersed with tight braids to add to the soft glam, whereas the makeup is kept mostly subtle with an even base. This is better suited for those who lean more towards no-makeup makeup looks and “clean girl” beauty. The star beauty detail is the velvet lip tint, which you can dab in small amounts on your cheeks for a soft glow.
