Italian Belle

Being a part of the Diaz clan and hailed as one of Manila’s It-girls, there’s no doubt that our gorgeous Calyxta Girl, Jess Wilson, radiates class and sophistication. In this week’s look, she emanates a lovely Italian vibe with deep red lips, a subtle smokey eye, and soft pin-up curls. This is the perfect peg if you’re looking to do an Italian chic ensemble.

Just follow these easy steps:



1) Start by choosing a good primer that would help you achieve a flawless matte finish. For this, you can try the BANILA CO. PRIME PRIMER CLASSIC MATTE, P1,060.

2) In this weather, it’s all about finding a good foundation that will last all day. The L’OREAL PARIS INFALLIBLE PRO-MATTE 24HR FOUNDATION, P700, is a longwearing air-light foundation that will give you a matte finish that won’t fall flat.

3) Conceal those dark circles and any other blemishes with the best-selling MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER, P299. It’s formulated with a translucent base, giving off a natural look.

4) Set your foundation and concealer using the RIMMEL LONDON STAY MATTE PRESSED POWDER, P385. Don’t ever skip this step to avoid a cakey and patchy finish!

5) Give your face some natural-looking definition by contouring it with the PIXI BOOK OF BEAUTY CONTOUR CREATOR, P1,290. Apply some highlight on the tops of your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, on your temples, and on your chin to add some glow to the face.

6) Keep it light and natural on the brows by filling it in with the MILANI STAY PUT BROW COLOR, P550. It’s long wearing plus waterproof!

7) Play with the PINK SUGAR EYE CANDY EYESHADOW PALETTE in Eye Candy 2, P699, for that subtle smokey eye. Just be sure not to go overboard on this!

8) To create that precise and neat line, use the CLIO WATERPROOF BRUSH LINER XP, P825, for that beautiful winged eye.

9) Curl your lashes and apply some of MAYBELLINE’S VOLUME EXPRESS HYPERCURL, P199. This will instantly brighten up your eyes with natural-looking lashes. (By the way, this is also Jess Wilson’s favorite mascara!)

10) For deep red lips, go for something very pigmented like OFRA’S LONG LASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK in Havana Nights, P850. It’s lightweight, creamy, and soft when applied, but dries off matte without looking dry or cracked.

11) Lastly, spritz on some of the L’OREAL PARIS INFALLIBLE PRO-SPRAY AND SET MAKEUP EXTENDER, P500, to keep your makeup looking fresh for hours without melting or fading.
