Celebrity makeup artist Jigs Mayuga (who also does makeup for MAC Cosmetics) is one to follow on Instagram. His colorful artistry as seen on Manila's A-list celebrities inspires us here at Style Factor. So in the name of beauty, we've asked Jigs to give us tips on how to get the look of a few Insta-photos we've "liked".
Megan Young's Dark Lips
If you're going for dark lips, "make sure everything else is clean and simple," explains Jigs. "Use single color on the lids, liner, and lashes. Nothing too severe on the eyes. Dark lips look better with simple eye makeup."
Nikki Gil's Perfect Arch
"I use a combination of pencil, eyebrow marker, and powder," Jigs says. "I start with the pencil at the beginning of the brow, which is near the corner of the nose. Then from the arch until the end of the eyebrow, I use the brow marker. You only go darker from the arch to the end of the eyebrows because hair gets thinner towards the end. I fine tune everything with brow powder using an angled brush."
Angel Locsin's Contoured Cheeks
Jigs says that it's best to use a darker shade of foundation with an angled brush on the hollows of your cheeks. "Set it with powder after you contour. I use liquid foundation or concealer because powder tends to clump. Plus, it's also easier to blend," he shares.
