Nadine Lustre remains on fire as 2018 closes! This past year, Nadine continues to show that she’s not just a pretty face but also a person filled with passion and talent. Her achievements prove that 2018 is her year.
Lustrous Make-Up by Nadine. Launched last July at the BYS Beauty Convention, Nadine levelled up her renowned fashionista status by launching her very own makeup line. She’s not just taking an existing line and branding it with her name, though — she partnered with the Australian brand BYS and took the post of Chief Creative Director.
Luster Perfume. When you’re the “It” girl of the showbiz industry, you don’t just have to look good, you also need to smell good. Hence Luster, independently conceptualized and produced by Nadine herself. Proving herself the versatile creative, Nadine single-handedly thought of the perfume’s theme and its sweet-yet-floral scent. She even designed the bottle!
Careless Mixtape. Veering away from the trend of network-backed albums, the JaDine tandem collaborated with other musicians and Careless Music Manila to create the Careless Mixtape, a lively and multi-layered production that speaks volumes about the actress-model’s musical expression. The fresh beats and meaningful vibes of the mixtape gained instant fame both among fans and among music aficionados, cementing Nadine’s reputation as a bona fide songstress.
Never Not Love You. The JaDine tandem touched hearts with this timeless tale of young love juxtaposed with the reality of life. But it’s not all box-office success for this film. Nadine’s performance also wowed audiences at the International Film Festival of India! The film was an official selection for the event’s World Panorama, which showcased outstanding films from around the world. The film was also screened to international audiences in the US and the Middle East. Locally, the film made PHP 20 million just on its first day, with critics especially praising Nadine’s impeccable command of the silver screen.
Slated projects. Nadine promises to show more of her cinematic prowess, as she sealed many more movie deals this year. “Ulan”, hitting theaters in 2019, puts Nadine in the shoes of the female lead. This further explores her dramatic side and breaks her from the JaDine mold as she stars opposite Carlo Aquino. “Indak”, on the other hand, stars Nadine opposite Sam Concepcion in a dance-themed musical movie that is sure to get people’s hearts and bodies moving. Nadine’s acting chops will be further showcased as she has been tapped to play Maria Makiling in the upcoming “Pedro Penduko” film starring James Reid.
“Most Beautiful Face”. Just as the year was about to end, Nadine was hailed by the Independent Critics’ Hall of Fame as having one of the Most Beautiful Faces! The list, first published in 1990, admits only those whose faces embody a high level of aesthetic perfection. Nadine was one of the only three Filipinas enshrined in the list.
Clearly, Nadine shows no signs of slowing down. She closed 2018 with a bang, and we can only wait in anticipation at the things in store for her in 2019!
