8 beauty looks we loved at the ABS-CBN Ball 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Any beauty junkie will know that hair and makeup can make or break a look – and nowhere is this more true than on the ABS-CBN Ball red carpet.

This year’s ball, held on September 14 at Shangri-la at the Fort, may have been the most exciting one yet, with the Modern Filipiniana theme bringing out the creativity of Filipino glam teams everywhere.

There was no shortage of exciting beauty looks this year, with lots of perfectly groomed skin, blotted lips, statement eyes, and daring hair-dos standing out in a sea of ternos and baraongs.

Here are our favorite hair and makeup looks from the ABS-CBN Ball 2019:

Ylona Garcia

We love Ylona’s updo with statement baby bangs, soft nude lip, lashes on lashes, and bronzey makeup with just a touch of gold on her eyes, emphasizing her morena glow. Her hair was done by Ethan David, and her makeup by Anthea Bueno. 

Leila Alcasid

Again under the brush of Anthea Buena, Leila’s look is a testament to the power of a no-base face. Leila’s beautiful freckled tan skin was the star of the look, accentuated by brushed-up brows, bronze cheeks and eyes, and a blotted red lip. She capped the look of with soft waves by Mark Familara.

Nadine Lustre

Nadine’s stunning red terno may have been on the classic side, but she still brought the edge with her hair and makeup. Our President wore sleek straight hair by Paul Nebres, and a statement smokey eye with crystals along her lower lash line.

Julia Barretto

Julia went full feminine at the ball this year, complementing her floral Rajo Laurel gown with a sugary pink blotted lip, extra long lashes, and soft pink eyes and cheeks by Thai makeup artist luckysevenb. Julia’s neat updo by RJ Dela Cruz drove home the daintiness of the look.

Fashion icon Kim Jones returned to the ABS-CBN Ball red carpet this year with a bang, wearing a cream Carl Jan Cruz creation, accentuated by finger waves on her bleached pixie done by hairstylist Suyen Salazar, and gold ochre on her eyes and blinding highlight by makeup artist Sylvina Lopez.

Jodi Sta. Maria

Jodi’s look perfectly softens the black structured terno pantsuit by Mark Bumgarner that she wore on the red carpet. Makeup artist Jett Torevillas gave her a soft smoky eye, with light pink lips and cheeks. Hairstylist Jay Wee kept Jodi’s hair sleek and simple to frame her face and complement the makeup.

Isabelle Daza

Isabelle put a modern spin on her mother Gloria Diaz’s vintage Pepito Albert terno with a bold beauty look. Makeup artist Emman Magpantay gave Belle’s eyes a striking blue wing, drawn over red-orange smoky shadow, and matched with a nude-red lip. For hair, she wore blunt bangs, and a ponytail with pearl barrettes by Mong Amado.

Maricar Reyes-Poon

Talk about committing to a look – Maricar had her pixie cut dyed pastel pink by Alex Carbonell to match her structured mint gown by Francis Libiran. Her hair was swept back by hairstylist Elrick Gatbonton, and paired with pale pink on her eyes, cheeks, and lips by makeup artist Winn Ramos for an overall look that was positively otherworldly.
