Last Saturday’s Lustrous Beauty Con proved to be a success, delighting guests with makeover and shopping booths and an appearance by Nadine Lustre herself. Another highlight of the event were beauty talks by some of the industry’s most respected editors. MEGA Magazine’s very own Editor-in-Chief Peewee Reyes-Isidro and Beauty & Features Editor Trina Epilepsia Boutain were there as well, fascinating the audience by showing them how to get stunning looks with the easy-to-use Lustrous products.
Here are some of our favorite takeaways:
1. Go bold with a red lip
Ask anyone you know—a red lip is a sure-fire way to wake up the face. “Always make sure you find a shade that’s perfect for you,” says Trina. “Brighter, cherry reds may suit cooler tones while shades with a hint of orange suit those with warmer tones better.” Out Lustrous pic for this? The berry red Lip and Cheek Tint in Vermillion (P399).
2. White eyeliner opens up the eyes
Here’s a quick tip to make your eyes look bigger: apply white eyeliner on your lower lash line. Even if it looks very simple, this subtle look will instantly open up the eyes. If you want to try this at home, we recommend the Lustrous Eyeliner Pencil in Moonstone (P199).
3. Dare to wear a smoky eye
“I’m still happy that I’m still doing it, and now, I get to inspire people as well. The dream hasn’t changed.”—Nadine Lustre (@nadine) – Grab the digital version on FLIP100 available on June 8.

Why a smoky eye? “It’s sexy and it’s easy,” says Trina. She continues to share that with smoky eye, you will instantly grab the attention of any person you’re talking to. To achieve this look, try the Lustrous Eyeshadow Palette in Calypso (P799), which features rich brown and tan tones.
