Cosmopolitan BEAUTYCON, the *biggest* beauty and wellness festival to hit the metro, happened from August 31 to September 1. Hundreds of Cosmo girls and boys went to the SMX Convention Center to buy from some of the coolest brands and interact + listen to their favorite influencers and celebrities!
The first speaker of Day 2 was beauty YouTuber Raiza Contawi who's known for her makeup tutorials and amazing celebrity transformations. For her segment at Cosmopolitan BEAUTYCON, she did a K-pop inspired makeup look on one lucky Cosmo Girl.
While she was putting makeup on the model, she shared some tips she learned throughout the years of doing YouTube videos. She advised everyone to *always* use a primer, and it's much better if it has ~*illuminating*~ pearls in it to get that extra glow. If you've got oily skin, she recommended applying a matte foundation that sets quickly without powder so you can still score a dewy finish without the risk of looking like a greasy mess.
She also talked about her thinking process whenever she decides to film her famous celebrity-inspired makeup transformations. She said that she always needs to be *in the zone* so she can ~internalize~ the famous person or character she will morph into. "Hindi ko minamadali because I consider this as my artwork."
