The Glam Squad Diaries: RB Chanco On Erich Gonzales’ Signature Glow

The Glam Squad Diaries: RB Chanco On Erich Gonzales’ Signature Glow

While the happy state of Erich Gonzales’ heart makes her extra blooming, the one person that has been her BFF for many years now when it comes to looking fresh and glowing no matter the long hours and the demands of her job is makeup artist RB Chanco. We got to chat with the lovely beauty maven (who’s also the go-to artist of ABS-CBN Chief Content Officer Charo Santos-Concio) at the launch of M.A.C Cosmetics’ Flamingo Park Collection regarding the Be My Lady star’s beauty loves, dislikes, their relationship that’s blossomed into one of sisters’, and her dream look for Erich:


The first time they worked together… “It was for a cover shoot. She requested for me but at that time we haven’t met yet.”

The first look she did for Erich… “The ‘in’ look then was exaggerated—thick brows, intense contour, smoky eyes, bronzed all over.”

I love working with her because… “When it comes to makeup, every year she changes her style—she tell me what she wants so it’s easy to work with her. Sometimes I do my style, but she’s also open to telling me sometimes ‘I don’t like this, it’s not me—can you do this instead?’.”

Her makeup peg now… “It’s less skin, less kilay but lip power, and then eyeliner and mascara.”

What you should avoid if you want to copy Erich’s look… “Don’t do extreme makeup looks. Just what’s right for you—no need to go the whole nine years or wear three times the foundation or do contour galore. Keep it natural, enhancing your beauty is key.”

Products you can try to get her look… “On her, I like the M.A.C Studio Fix foundation, the contour palette, their eyebrow collection.”

The look I’d love to do on Erich in the future… “Super extreme, super smoky, super false lashes—iibahin ko yung look nya, which is hindi pa nya ko pinapayagang gawin. *laughs*”
