"Nadine Lustre-inspired" Makeup Look By Pinay Vlogger Raiza Contawi Impresses JaDine Fans On Social Media.


Fame is a powerful cultural magnet. As a hyper-social species, we acquire the bulk of our knowledge, ideas, and skills by copying from others, rather than through individual trial-and-error. However, we pay far more attention to the habits and behaviors demonstrated by famous people than those demonstrated by ordinary members of our community.

An example is the way in which celebrities act as cultural magnets is that we frequently copy traits that have little, if anything, to do with what made them successful in the first place - like the clothes they wear, their hairstyles, or how they talk.

It’s not surprising to think that people peg Nadine Lustre, e.g. her style, her playlist, her Instagram feed, her make-up, among others. It’s no wonder that she is considered one of today’s fashion icons. In fact, the actress showcased her knack for fashion designing when she wore her self-designed blush gown during the premiere night of her movie with on and off-screen partner James Reid.



Meanwhile, someone just managed to pull off copying one of Nadine Lustre’s styles. Remember the actress’ Japanese-inspired look? You will certainly be impressed that a Filipino Youtuber named Raiza Contawi transformed her appearance into something akin to Nadine’s twin and copied every element from the actress’ makeup look—from fake lashes to double buns, even her oversized hoop earrings.





Raiza’s nine-minute video has now garnered around 84,000 views, while Youtube users commended her perfect depiction of the “Til I Met You” leading lady. The vlogger also dedicated her entry most especially to Nadine’s or “JaDine’s” fanatics. She wrote in her caption:





“Jadine fans where you at? Nadine Lustre is one of the prettiest faces in show business and I thought of sporting her go-to look with a few makeup products. Enjoy #Jadine’s!”
Before she got down with her activity, Raiza did a few introductions (or a few hacks) about Nadine’s usual make-up. You might want to take notes on these.





“Now, the way I see Nadine’s look—I’m looking at her sa Instagram para, you know, may basis ako—she always dons this parang every day very fresh lang na look. Usually, yung eyes nya almost bare, eyeliner lang talaga, and then lashes, and then blush. Most of the time din, parang pinkish lipstick. And then kapag may mga special occasions, dun ko nakikita na parang meron siyang red or darker lips.”





Oh and for makeup aficionados out there, be sure to thank Raiza as she provided all the products she used just beneath her caption.

Always remember that celebrities are just people. People packaged up very nicely, but people all the same. They have the same ups and downs, fears and joys, successes and challenges as the rest of us. When they stumble and fall let’s have the good grace to look away. We can appreciate them when they entertain us, for that is their job, and then get on with our own lives.
