While you don’t have stylists or glam teams to dress you up and prettify you 24/7, there’s so much you can learn from our chic and lovely local celebs’ revolving door of looks—hence there’s no reason you shouldn’t step up your style and beauty game. Here are five easy hacks inspired by the recent looks of Anne Curtis, Sarah Geronimo, Liza Soberano, Alex Gonzaga, and Janella Salvador:
When in doubt, go monochromatic. A single, neutral hue will always make you look polished so pick your poison and make it your outfit’s theme. Sarah Geronimo’s choice for her event over the weekend is a camel jumpsuit (styled by Bang Pineda; notice how her innerwear is also in a similar shade for a seamless look). To keep things from being too serious, swipe on a lippie in a bright shade.
Combine hairstyling techniques to come up with a unique ‘do. These days, one-dimensional just won’t do—even when it comes to your ‘do. Celebrity hairstylist John Valle sets Liza Soberano apart from the beautiful pack by doing a combination of pinstraight locks, a half-updo, and braids on her for an endorsement shoot.
Go matchy-matchy at the gym. But no, we’re not talking about monochromatic athleticwear. Explore prints and punches of color, like Anne Curtis did, instead of just sticking to your usual plain neons, blacks, and whites. Getting your gym clothes in sets will save you time in the morning but will give you just enough fasyon vibe for your fitness time.
Make big hair bigger. We’re so used to seeing big hair (read: large, voluminous curls and waves), but did you know that you can actually make them look even bigger and more fab? This hairstyle done by celebrity hairstylist Chris Rodil on Alex Gonzaga is proof of that: Curls created with a large barrel iron, transformed into a half updo that’s fluffy towards the crown.
You can achieve that sophisticated monochromatic glow even if you use two tones. Provided those two tones are very, very near each other, as in the case of Janella Salvador’s outfit (styled by Perry Tabora): A pale pink buttondown and white shorts. The play on tones still stays on the elegant side, you’d actually hardly notice the difference.
