Life has once again sprinkled rainbow bits to Pinay teen queen Kathryn Bernardo’s ceaseless blooming attainments ’cause now she has her own make-up collaboration with homegrown beauty brand Happy Skin Philippines. Kathryn shared that being hands-on with creating a make-up line has always been her dream. She got the opportunity to carefully cherry-pick the shades and formulations that are suitable to every Filipina’s skin tone and to convey that simple can be beautiful.
The Kath X Happy Skin Grand Launch took place in Fashion Hall, SM Megamall last August 18. The show started around 6PM, so while waiting, we took time swatchin’ in the make-up corner. At first swipe, our initial reaction was, “Wow! This has a great pigment.” I love how the shades really suit Filipina skin tones. Not too light nor too strong. Kathryn Bernardo and Happy Skin PH did a great job in formulating this collection.
Kathryn was interviewed by Tim Yap and Arisse de Santos. She was asked questions on how she came up with the product concept, formulation, and what inspired & motivated her in this collaboration. Her answer was pretty simple. Pretty and simple! She wanted to make a statement that you don’t have to put everything to feel and look beautiful with her effortless and easy to use make-up line. No need to conceal everything, just enhance your natural glow! The epitome of “simplicity is beauty” and a proud Morena, Kathryn encourages Pinays to love their beautiful complexion.

The Kath X Happy Skin make-up collaboration speaks to all Filipinas that you don’t need to put a lot on your face to look beautiful. Effortless and easy to use are the friendly features of this new make-up collaboration which almost any Pinay can use, whether a college student, yuppie, or working mom. It took two years for Happy Skin team and Kath to make this Filipina dream make-up happen and they made sure the collection matches the teen queen’s personality: it’s authentic, ace, and accessible.
