Happy Skin Glam Squad: The Make Up Artists of the Stars, Right At Your Fingertips + Q and A
Liza Soberano's always been known for her sweet look. Kathryn Bernardo's loved for her fresh look and for being one of the firsts to sport the Korean brow. Cheska Garcia's sultry, bold eyes has always stood out. Maine Mendoza's clean, camera- ready look is a hit among fans.
Their secret? Makeup Artists.
Happy Skin collaborates with four of the biggest, most sought after celebrity makeup artists of today and created Glam Squad, a new makeup collection to deliver looks, colors, and textures, straight from the masters themselves; quite literally, it's having the makeup artists of the stars right in your kikay kit!
Mickey See, Juan Sarte, Denise Go- Ochoa, and Jigs Mayuga lend their color and technique genius to create an 8- piece collection of complementing eye, complexion, and lip products for every woman who needs to glam up their look in an instant. The colors-as well as the textures-were handpicked by the artists themselves to represent their signature looks and favorite colors.
Mickey See's (for Liza Soberano) palette is made up of sweet pinks.
Juan Sarte's (for Maine Mendoza) collection is comprised of everyday nudes and rose
Denise Go- Ochoa's (for Kathryn Bernardo) makeup set features flattering peaches
Jigs Mayuga's (for Cheska Kramer) boudoir offers bold basics and nude
The main collection is accompanied by a brush set, eyebrow duo of pencil and brow mascara, and contouring + blush duo.
Here are swatches of the eye shadow duos. From left to right, we have Mickey See, Denise Ochoa, Jigs Mayuga, and Juan Sarte; Sarte and Jigs's palettes are my faves!
L-R: Juan Sarte, Sophie Uy, Mickey See, Beauty Bloggers Shen, Shebby, and Almira
I got the chance to interview makeup legends, Mickey and Sarte; from humble beginnings, makeup, work ethics, inspirations, and career tips, we talked about it:
How they both started...
Mickey has always loved makeup ever since he was young while Sarte started playing with his mom's makeup at a young age and both of them evolved from trying out products on themselves to actually putting on makeups on others; that's how the fire began.
Mickey eventually pursued a career in makeup artistry by starting out with doing makeups (sometimes paid and sometimes for free) for magazine shoots. Unlike Mickey, Sarte, who began his career as a caster for an advertising agency, just fell into makeup as he was one of the people tasked to put makeup on the models before casting trials and he eventually embraced the it. Sarte has been in the industry for 22 years and Mickey, for 12 years.
Their makeup heroes...
Sarte started out with a book by Way Bandy, who, at one point, was the highest paid makeup artist in the world. Mickey See is the great Kevyn Aucoin. Locally, Mickey's makeup hero is Juan Sarte and Sarte's is Mila Garces, who, according to him, is one of the best Filipina makeup artists.
Their signature looks...
Juan Sarte's a specialist in the classic, clean look that's camera- ready. Mickey See is an expert in the sweet, bridal look.
If they could give you one career advice...
For Mickey, he believes that humility and kindness will take you far.
For Sarte, he advises that when you encounter unfortunate events or clients, don't spend too much time and effort fussing about them because at the end of the day, everything will pass.
P.S. I've been following Sarte and Mickey for the longest time already for makeup inspiration!
Totally loved the interview portions with these amazing artists and of course, the new collection as well. You gotta try the liquid lipsticks!
