Taking beauty risks does pay off—just take a look at Janella's transformation with statement silver eyes!

Maymay Entrata is a Glitter Goddess

The supermodel-esque Maymay wows yet again in a risky makeup look that did wonders for her morena face.  Her go-to makeup artist these days is Owen Sarmiento, and he knows that Maymay's face can handle some of the riskiest makeup trends like glitter embellished eyes. For the Christmas special, he does a beautiful bronze smokey eyeshadow paired with a glitter embellished cat eye, brushed-up brows, and a nude lip. J'adore!
