Since moving to New York, Catriona Gray’s Miss Universe duties have gone in full swing. She went through two days straight of media interviews and she was bubbly in all of them. People praised her for her on-point responses, as well as her glowy look that didn’t melt off under studio lights.

Based on the most recent selfie posted on celebrity MUA Yuko Takahashi, Catriona had on champagne-pink eyeshadow and her cheeks glistened in the same shade. She also sported a nude lipstick in the same pinkish color. It’s a monochromatic look that doesn’t look too overpowering.

If you want to do something similar, shop the picks below.

Benefit Cosmetics Mini Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation

If there’s anything we learned from Pia Wurtzbach’s tutorial from 2017, it’s that studio lights can pick up if you’re packing on too much product. For the base, you can opt for Benefit’s Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation which has a light-medium coverage. It’s lightweight but promises to even out your skin tone. It also has SPF 15 so it’s good under the sun, too. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.

MAC Pro Longwear Powder

Set the base with a powder that’ll take away any shine on your skin. Go for MAC’s Pro Longwear Powder which is said to last for up to 12 hours. Available at SM Makati.

Pat McGrath Mothership Eyeshadow Palette in II Sublime

As mentioned, Catriona’s eyelids had a tinge of champagne-pink. But before adding that pop in the middle, her crease has touches of brown too. A palette that has all the colors mentioned and more is this one from Pat McGrath. The pink shimmer is pearlescent so you’ll get just the right amount of shimmer. Available on Sephora PH.

Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara

The lashes were also lifted up to the gods and you’ll need a volumizing mascara to keep them like that. This one from Max Factor promises to give you bold and black lashes that’ll make you look more awake. This is especially useful for when you’re jetlagged but still need to go to three places throughout the day. Available at Beauty Bar branches.

Generation Happy Skin Instant Glow Longwear Powder Blush in Love

For a rosy flush, this Generation Happy Skin blush will do the trick. Aside from giving your cheeks some color, you’ll also notice your skin getting a glow-from-within effect. Available at Glorietta 5.

Colourette Face Gloss in Dream Quartz

Catriona’s skin glistened with a golden highlighter shade. Dream Quartz will give you just that with a touch of peach-pink. Apply this on your cheekbones, nosebridge, and even your forehead. Available on Shopee.

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in Nature’s Blush

Finish is off with a nude lipstick. The one Catriona had on is glossy, rounding up the overall makeup look. L’Oreal’s Nature’s Blush has a similar shade and finish. Available at select Watsons stores.
