Rustan’s The Beauty Source has been slaying Women’s Month with their Rustan’s Beauty Addict GRLPWR event for years! This year was no exception as it celebrated and empowered strong women to embrace their femininity with a confident and radiant attitude while becoming their most beautiful and vibrant selves this summer.
Rustan’s Beauty Addict GRLPWR event at Rustan’s Shangri-La was the place to be for all the fierce and independent ladies out there! Glasses were raised high, as beauty enthusiasts conquered exciting summer-themed beauty brand activities and won a plethora of exciting beauty products. Delectable canapés from Bizu Patisserie and craft cocktails by Philippine Wine Merchants were also enjoyed as they danced to heart-pumping beats by DJs Jimmy Nocon and DJ Luane De Lima. And as if that wasn’t enough, inspiring words and beauty tips were also shared with one another, making it a truly unforgettable experience!
Beauty Advice From Certified Girl Bosses

Designer Rosenthal Tee shared her way of celebrating achievements “I always have to take it day by day, not every day is going to be your best but at least try to remember why you’re doing what you’re doing each day and be thankful for all the blessings and challenges that come your way. As often as possible, kind of give yourself a little treat, mani pedi, or take 15 to 30 minutes to get a good stretch”.
On the other hand, model Stephanie Dods stated how she prioritizes self-care “I make sure to work out every day. Ever since I hit twenty-eight/ twenty-nine, I started really getting into skincare, so my skincare ritual for morning and night, I spend a good half hour on. I always make sure to take care of myself if I go out, I put make-up on, I do my hair, I feel good, and that’s all it is.”

Meanwhile, singer Reneé Dominique remarks that the three traits of an empowered woman for her are “Someone who is confident, someone who is secure with themselves and their identity, and someone who is kind. Because what’s the use of being secure and confident if you’re not kind to yourself and the people around you?” On the other hand, model Candice Dela Cruz shared that her self-affirmations to uplift herself are “I am fearless. I am capable. I am beautiful.” For an empowering and confidence-boosting song, digital creator Danie Valdepeñas commented her go-to is Katy Perry’s Roar.
To avoid heat-induced beauty woes, Beauty Editor Belle Rodolfo recommended SPF, double-cleanse, and fresh summer fragrance as her summer must-haves, while model Jessica Yang emphasized the importance of using a heat protector spray to avoid hair damage.

Make-up Artist Miss Nate advised the younger audience to lather on some sunscreen before anything else, claiming “you’re never too young for sunscreen, any age can wear sunscreen and benefit from it”. He also shared an inspiring message for his younger self, “My teenage self wasn’t really confident, and wasn’t really open to trying new stuff. If I get the chance to talk to him, I’ll tell him to try everything, at least once. All of the beauty tips and tricks, just keep going.”
Creative consultant Ella Pangilinan added “Something that is overlooked is a good scent. Because we do our make-up, we do our hair, but then you also have to smell good so we feel fresh, for me it’s one of the first things that I notice in a person so I would definitely not be complete without Jo Malone’s English Pear & Freesia, so refreshing, floral, and fruity so I love that scent”.
Model Pat Cortez shared her summer plans, which involve beach trips to La Union, Siargao, and El Nido, and recommended bringing Anessa sunscreen and hair oil.
Recognizing that women deserved to feel confident, comfortable, and carefree, no matter what the weather brought, Rustan’s The Beauty Source provided the perfect beauty tools and must-haves. Actress Vanna Garcia mused “The GRLPWR event is doing so good. We’re seeing so many brands (activities) and promotions everywhere.” When asked what advice she would give her younger self, Vanna mused “I think I would’ve been doing more beauty products and skincare when I was younger, because it’s really good to start young and early, and there are a lot of those things that you can find here in Rustan’s.”
