It’s possible to cop your favorite celebrity’s look without breaking the bank.
A dash to a department store or drugstore will let you achieve your beauty pegs at a fraction of a cost.
Just ask celebrity makeup artist Jake Galvez, who was one of the makeup masters at the recently held SM Beauty Holiday Hop event in SM Makati.
Jake counts Kim Chiu, Andi Eigenmann, and Sarah Lahbati among his roster of clients.
For lipstick aficionados, here’s Jake’s tip.
“Maybelline’s Long Lasting Matte Finish Lipstick is comparable to any expensive matte lipstick in the market,” he told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
The product has different lines of creamy mattes, powder mattes, bold mattes, and inti-matte nudes depending on your preference.
At P299, you can choose one from each and wear whatever suits your mood for the day.
Jake also suggested an alternative for your expensive eyebrow pencil.
“L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Designer Pro is the best eyebrow pencil,” he revealed.
The 3-in-1 pencil, which retails at P500, also has a tiny spoolie and a powder tip to help you shape your brows and frame your face.
For foundation, we asked Jake what best suits women with oily skin.
“L’Oreal Paris’ Infallible Pro-Matte Collection! I swear, this is by far the best product I’ve tried this year,” the makeup artist-columnist answered.
At P700 for a 300ml tube, Jake said you can achieve a matte finish using this lightweight and long-wearing liquid foundation.
