It is no secret that TV and events host Janeena Chan is also a beauty and makeup enthusiast. Aside from her energetic hosting, we also see her regularly writing tips on beauty and fitness on her Instagram account

“Makeup is such a fun and creative tool to express ourselves. It’s there to enhance our features, make us feel alive, with every brush stroke, color and shine we apply,” she explains. And if you’ve always been curious about how she maintains her glowing porcelain skin, then read along as she walks us through her beauty routine.


“Beauty is in everything, and it’s different for everyone, but I think what makes something or someone universally beautiful is the truth we see in it, and this is when confidence comes in,” says Janeena Chan.

1. Clinique Clarifying Lotion 

Janeena says she preps her makeup routine with this exfoliating lotion for dry and combination skin as her toner. She applies the product by using a cotton pad before applying her moisturizer and SPF. 

2. Happy Skin Rescue Me Tinted Sun Gel with SPF 50 and Anti-Blue Light Tech

Now that summer is here, she reminds people even more to use sunscreen. Her latest beauty product discovery is this sun gel that not only blocks harmful sun rays but also blue light. According to Janeena, she considers packaging, functionality and ingredients before purchasing new products. 

3. Happy Skin Dew Cooling UV Sun Mist

“It smells like sweet honeydew, is not sticky, and feels extra refreshing on the skin. It has skin-loving ingredients, too,” she says cheerfully. This product is a 3-in-1 mist and sunscreen that can protect and hydrate the skin. 

4. L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation

She swears by L’Oréal Infallible because of its full coverage for her base foundation. The product “doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It’s not cakey too, and glides easily when applied,” she says. 

Janeena adds that the TikTok trend on makeup base application influenced her and blew her mind. The trend only follows simple steps: moisturizing, adding powder, applying the setting spray, applying primer, then adding foundation. “It looks extra polished and makes for a long-lasting base,” she explains. Want one for yourself? You may order via the Watsons eStore.


Janeena’s holy grail: Teviant Eyebrow Tint, BLK Cosmetics Brow Stick, Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Lip and Eye Remover Pad

5. Teviant Eyebrow Tint

For girls afraid of overdoing their brows, Janeena says the Teviant Eyebrow Tint is her inexpensive (P395) holy grail brow product. “It has a natural finish and gives off a microbladed effect on the brows.” Get this product via the Teviant Beauty online store.

6. BLK Cosmetics Brow Stick 

Another affordable go-to product for Janeena is BLK Cosmetics Brow Stick. “It’s so convenient since it’s a 2-in-1 product at only P399,” she says. It has a creamy pencil that easily glides on the brows and a brow mascara that ensures each strand is brushed perfectly. Go to Watsons eStore and buy one now!


7. Benefit Cosmetics Blush Bar Cheek Star Reunion Face Palette 

Janeena has a long list of “sulit” investments when it comes to makeup. For cheeks, she uses Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Star Reunion Face Palette (P3,980), we know, the price may seem a bit on the expensive side for something called “sulit”, but the limited-edition palette includes a blush brush and has five new different rosy shades you can use for so long which makes it an “economical choice” for Janeena.


Janeena’s beauty picks: Benefit Cosmetics Blush Bar Cheek Star Reunion Face Palette, Dior Addict Lip Maximizer, K-Palette Lasting Semi-Matte Lip Tint, Teviant Eyebrow Tint, L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation, Shiseido Eyelash Curler, Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Magnet Powerful Lifting & Lengthening Mascara, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick, Happy Skin Rescue Me Tinted Sun Gel with SPF 50 and Anti-Blue Light Tech

8. Shiseido Eyelash Curler

Not a lot of people know, but aside from mascaras, the secret to bright and wide eyes is a fitting eyelash curler that’s proportional to the size of their eyes. For Janeena, she shares this recommendation along with other makeup experts. 

“I’m friends with a lot of pro makeup artists here in Manila and it’s great to see them elevate the country’s beauty industry with the looks they serve,” she says.

9. Peripera Ink Color Cara

For a more natural effect, Janeena suggests using brown mascara. “I  wish I learned the lifted eyes eyeliner trend sooner, wherein the middle part of my eyes aren’t too heavy on the liner, and the lashes or falsies are placed more on the outer sides of the lash line since this makeup style looks more effortless,” she explains.  

10. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Magnet Powerful Lifting & Lengthening Mascara

She switches between Peripera and Benefit for her lashes. “I just slightly wiggle the wand from the root to the tip of my lashes, making sure it’s applied evenly and not too thick or clumpy,” she adds.

11. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick

This is another product that Janeena swears by. The eyeshadow stick is dual-ended which can fit a daytime picnic or a nighttime dinner perfect for gals always on the go. For Janeena, she personally loves this since its 8-hour long-lasting formula “doesn’t crease on the eyes,” she says.

12. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer 

The 27-year-old host reminds girls to never sacrifice quality for the hype. “Sometimes my lips would even peel and be damaged by even the littlest hint of potentially harmful chemicals. In the end, it would cost me more since I’d have to invest in lip treatments,” she adds. 

This minty lip maximizer with volumizing spheres of hyaluronic acid “plumps and takes care of my lips,” she says. The shade she likes is Rosewood.

13. K-Palette Lasting Semi-Matte Lip Tint 

If you’re looking for a solid wearable color that can go from day to night, Janeena goes by the shade “Woody Nude” of this famous lip tint known to last for a day.

15. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum

“My usual skincare steps are just to remove my makeup with a face wipe or makeup remover, wash my face with a cleanser or face wash, apply toner, moisturizer, and serum or an ampoule,” says Janeena. 

This bottle, which is formulated to hydrate the skin, reduce wrinkles, and make skin firmer is one of Janeena’s favorite skincare products.
