Cheat Sheet: Recreate These Star Magic Ball 2016 Makeup Looks For That All-Important First Date

The jitters of the first date—restlessness, palm sweating, constant mirror checking and wracking your brain for the most sensible thing to say to your date. Ugh, if only you can remedy those nerves whenever you date a new guy. 

But thank people who invented makeup, which can instantly boost your confidence and enhance your beauty for this one special night. Primping for a date can clear your panic a bit, especially once you get a glimpse of the finished look. And not to mention, it will really impress your guy.

The stars have got your back, too! For your first date, why not take inspiration from these ladies' makeup looks during the Star Magic Ball? It's super easy and doable, we promise. Ready?


Put the focus on your eyes, so he can stare at it all night long. Eyeliner, lots of mascara and groomed brows will the the trick! Keep the rest bare but glowing—use a bit of highlighter and nude lip gloss for nice, kissable puckers. Separate a few wisps of your hair for a romantic flair and keep the rest of your hair pulled back in a chic chignon. Nailed the Liza Soberano look!

For Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo's regal beauty, highlighting your natural color is key. Peach lips and a bronze sheen on the lids, check. Line your eyes to make them pop, and add flush with a pinker-than-usual blush on. Switch things up by trying the wet look on your hair—apply serum all over your mane, scrunch it up, and let down before he comes knocking on your door. 


If you want to make a sweet but strong impression, opt for Elisse Joson's look. She let her face do the talking by sporting a very chic mid-part bun that didn't hide her visage; she pulled off elegance with a rosy white complexion and doe eyes, thanks to her long, long lashes. For the ultimate girly feel, swipe on pink lipstick and practice a small smile for when you see him tonight.

For the more daring, Janella Salvador is your soul sister. Contour your way to a slimmer face, put false eyelashes and line your lower and upper lids. A creamy lipstick in nudish pink tones down the look, so it's not too intimidating. Soft waves brushed back add sophistication.


For the more spontaneous types, stick to basics—thick brows make a statement, so keep your other features on the down low. Prevent a hair disaster by loosening up, literally. Beach waves  are refreshing and fasyon, just make sure to seal with hairspray so the look lasts way into the night. Thank Julia Barretto for this sexy-cool date look inspiration.
