There is only a handful in showbiz who have successfully rocked fresh and light style looks and glowy makeup without an excess in intensity. Kathryn Bernardo has for sure made the fresh and glamorous beauty look her own. During last week's "Ikaw Ang Sunshine Ko" ABS-CBN Trade Launch, Kathryn stepped out styled by Kim and Boop Yap and wowed in an airy, floaty, off-shoulder technicolor dress that may leave you misty-eyed with delight.
Her glowy and sunkissed but not too bare makeup by Justine Del Rosario is certainly one look to add to our fresh-face goals this week. Kathryn's healthy looking beach waves that long-haired girls totally aim for this summer are care of hairstylist, Myk Feliciano. Here, we'd like to share a couple of ways to somehow recreate the look spot on without looking like you tried too hard.
Hunt for that long flowy, summer dress in bold colors and patterns. Make sure to look for a light sort of fabric that can give you that Gone With The Wind effect when a strong breeze blows. There are lots of summer "tiangges" that sell off-the-rack dresses for way affordable prices. There is always the good ol' Greenhills Shopping Center where there are countless choices of girls' wear for the summer. We're certain this is not where her stylists scored Kathryn's dress but GSC is a place where you will certainly find a variety of summer dresses to choose from.
For shoes, we suggest that you set aside a good budget for a sturdy pair of footwear simply because shoes bear a lot more wear and tear than clothes do. Locally, you can find nice pumps at places like CMG...here we've spotted a low pump in a turquoise color, not spot on pastel aqua like Kathryn's higher-heeled pumps above but in stores they may have colors closer to what you're trying to find.
For beauty, prep your skin at least a couple of days in advance. Hydrate yourself with lots of water, exfoliate, and moisturize especially at night. Then aim for makeup that looks glowy but not greasy and lean towards peachy pink coral for color. During the day, don't forget to apply light, oil-free sunscreen underneath your makeup. Kathryn's makeup by Justine Del Rosario has an ethereal satin glow, bright coral blush and the same hue on her lips, plus does have contouring that isn't at all distracting. We also see that the waterlines of her eyes beneath her lashes are rimmed with eyeliner for intensity. Hair should be treated and hydrated days before styling, hot oil treatments are available at salons to deep condition hair. If your hair is naturally wavy then simply rub some nourishing hair oil (like argan or macadamia oil) briskly between your hands (not too much) and rub into the body of the hair and at the ends.
We've spotted a makeup tutorial by UK celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge for a similarly fresh look that isn't as dewy but still looks fresh and is meant to last even for weddings. It was a look done on the red carpet for Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake's wifey. The tutorial comes complete with a sneak peek on discreet but defining eyeliner techniques and a small portion of an individual false-lash application.
