Power Dressing? #GirlBoss Makeup Must-Have’s to Match Your Killer Outfit

You probably reserve a go-to outfit whenever you need to power dress. Maybe it’s for a speaking engagement or a photoshoot. Maybe you have a report in front of a huge audience. Maybe you have an interview, or you’re nervous about an upcoming event. We all need a power outfit for the nerve-racking events in our lives!

But what kind of makeup do you use to match your power outfit? Here are some suggestions.

1.) Bold Lipstick

Trade your nude MLBB (my lips but better) lippie for a bolder red shade. A red lipstick can instantly make you look (and feel) braver! Even if you keep a relatively simple makeup, a red lippie alone can help you appear more authoritative and confident.

 Sisley’s Phyto-Lip Twist in Cherry (Php 2,100)

Phyto-Lip Twist is a tinted balm, colored like a lipstick and shiny like a gloss. It is applied with a single “twist” and leaves the lips supple, moisturized, visibly smoothed and plumped thanks to its plant-based key ingredients. Its ultra-sensory smooth glide-on texture reinvents lipstick!

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl (Php 1,450)

Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Olivia Munn, and Jaime King are just some of the celebrities who are fans of this lippie! “The easy-to-control pencil feels creamy going on and sets to a long-lasting matte finish without shriveling lips,” wrote Meirav Devash in Allure’s “The Best Red Lipsticks of All Time.”

 2.) Foundation

 Eye bags and pimples can make you look exhausted. But feeling tired doesn’t mean you have to look tired, too! Instantly get rid of skin imperfections by using a foundation that matches your skin type and skin tone.

 La Prairie Anti Aging Foundation 300 (Php 5,700)

You only need one drop of this foundation to cover your entire face! It applies smoothly and feels creamy on the skin. Even though it provides great coverage, it doesn’t feel cakey at all!

This product is more than just makeup–it also takes care of your skin! It provides UV protection. It also hydrates and moisturizes your skin.

This truly makes my skin look flawless. Flawless and less wrinkled.

3.) Shine Control Powder

The last thing you want to have during an important event is an oily face. No matter how perfect your foundation, lipstick, and eyeliner are, an oily face could make you look sloppy. Make sure to use a product to keep the oiliness at bay.

Laura Mercier’s Shine Control Pressed Setting Powder (Php 1,850)


This mattifying  powder sets your makeup and takes control of oily shine. It’s transparent, which means it’s ideal for every skin tone.

4.) Strong Eyebrows

Strong eyebrows can make you look more put together. They frame your face, and help you look more expressive and authoritative.

 Stila’s Stay All Day® Waterproof Brow Color (Php 1,250)

It has a unique marker-inspired brush tip pen that makes application easy and effortless. Using its fine brush tip, you can mimic the look of natural brows. Keep a light hand as you draw hair-like strokes. That way, your brows look naturally full, finished, and defined.

5.) Mascara

Gigi Engle, a writer from Elite Daily, wrote, “The makeup product I cannot live without is mascara…Mascara is the most important tool you need to look bright-eyed in the morning.”

We totally agree with her! You don’t want to your eyes to look droopy and sleepy on your big day! Your mascara can help you there.

Clarins’ Supra Volume Mascara (Php 1,650)

This innovative mascara visibly creates intense volume! Your lashes will look fuller and thicker. It has rich color pigments that create a dramatic effect. It’s also clump-free and long-wearing.

You can now step out with a bold pout, clear skin, strong brows, and bright eyes! Knowing you look your best can give you a much-needed confidence boost. Remember to rest well before your big day and give yourself enough time to put on your power outfit and makeup. Enjoy the whole process of dressing up! It’s usually therapeutic and soothing–as long as you’re not rushing through the whole process.

We hope all these tips helped you prepare for your big day!
