I was browsing through the Star Magic Bal 2011l pictures at Yahoo Philippines and noticed that most of the comments had to do with the celebrities’ makeup. This goes to prove that no matter how beautiful a person is, she/he must choose the makeup artist well. Fact is, makeup can make or break you.
Some comments are really funny but true, such as how Gretchen Barreto was missing the broomstick with the avant garde dark makeup and black shapeless dress. Others are plain rude, perhaps out of fan rivalries.
The star of the night for me would be Kristine Hermosa, whose makeup and outfit speak royalty, even with the baby bump. Being a makeup artist herself, she clearly knows what looks good on her.
Melai Cantiveros looked simple yet pretty. Someone even commented that she should stick with the makeup artist who dolled her up that night. But then her gown looks rented from a wedding shop.
There were a number of actresses who donned white, but it was Kim Chiu who pulled it off elegantly without looking like a bride waiting for her groom in a mass wedding.
Jodi Sta. Maria, a highly esteemed actress of her generation is as classy as ever, although I think the look would have been more neat with her hair pulled up.
Speaking of hair, Kiray Celis happens to have one of the most gorgeous hair styles that night. But apart from the hair and the handsome partner, well.. Kiray is a young comedienne after all- the outfit must have been a joke.
If you want a nice peg for a prom, check out Mara Clara star, Kathryn Bernardo’s hair. The gown and makeup are just right for her age. A good example of how young people should look during formal events
I’m a fan of nude lipsticks but it didn’t go right with some celebrities like Megan Young, whose pallid lips didn’t do justice to her Hollywood-worthy beauty. Disturbing to see was Lovi Poe who was Jake Cuenca’s date for the night. Her divinely morena features are usually stunning, but she looked rather tired and dehydrated at the Star Magic Ball. The messy hair and nude lipstick didn’t help, either. The pale colors of the dress would have been balanced with darker lip colors. The hair defined her look for the night- messy.
On the contrary, Bea Alonzo wore super red lips which aged her a lot. I prefer her with pinkish lip shades. Somehow the dress and overall look seemed as if she was channeling Dolly Parton on her way to the Casino.
A lot of male actors had makeup gone bad. Grooming is undeniably difficult for males, as some makeup artists tend to put makeup on them in the same way that it is applied on females, leaving the guys emasculated. Some had obviously lighter foundation and shiny lipgloss. With flash photography, the foundation mismatch can get accentuated, downgrading the makeup artist into a mortician.
For the males, among the best would have to be Xian Lim and Rafael Rosell who looked like they stepped out of GQ Magazine. Oyo Sotto, is not to be missed, whose dashing good looks perfectly matched her ethereally beautiful wife.
