KC Concepcion created quite a stir this week when she mindfully clapped back at a basher who commented "mukha kang clown" on her Instagram post on September 1, 2019.
Others may be offended by the comment, but KC handled the situation gracefully, complete with her pak na pak red lipstick.
The photo showed the 34-year-old star wearing a make-up look known as classic red lips, which is achieved by using a very deep shade of red lipstick and very minimal make-up in subtle tones on the rest of the face.
A staple look for local and foreign celebrities, classic red lips can make you look glammed up in an instant.
But as her make-up artist Gerry Penaso pointed out, the red lips will easily stand out with a "beautiful skin."
In case you're wondering about the lipstick brands she uses, here are some that earned a spot on her Instagram feed.
Her "current fave" is the Shiseido Modern Matte Powder Lipstick.
This one is also from the same Japanese brand. It's actually called ColorGel LipBalm Moisturizing Lipstick in Tiger Lily.
These engravable YSL Tatouage Couture lipsticks also became beauty staples in her purse. In her March 20, 2019 posts, part of her caption read, "I always have 3 shades in my purse, one for morning, another for day & one more for night. This time I’ve named my own stash. "
KC's full name is Kristina Cassandra.
The former actress dubbed the Franch brand as "classics."
How to stand out with your lipstick
Beyond the brand, finding the perfect shade can make your lips the highlight of your entire look.
The color has to complement your skin tone.
Red lipsticks in cool tones or those that have the same shade as the raspberry fruit are suited for people with fair complexion.
The orange-red shade is best for medium skin tone, while deep, bright red are for those with dark skin.
On a separate note, if you want a velvety finish with intense and bold hue, go for the standard matte type, but if you want to make your lips look soft and is less likely to make them dry, try the semi-matte.
