A swipe through Maris Racal’s Instagram feed will tell you that she has a low-key, au naturel take on beauty. From minimal to zero makeup, she’s a breath of fresh air in the age of filters and glammed up selfies. Perhaps, it’s her sun-kissed glow that gives her that stunning appeal without much effort. Or, it could just be the way Maris carries everything with such quiet confidence, making her even more alluring in anyone’s eyes.
Now, the 21-year-old artist is the new face of Careline, a brand that believes that beauty isn’t about looking a certain way, but rather having fun in expressing your truest self. “We chose Maris because we think that aside from her beauty, she’s also an all-around artist, being an actress, musician, and performer,” says Brand Manager of Careline, Miya Inomata. “From her looks to her talent, she’s very expressive which is what the Careline girl is all about.”
As the cosmetics line of Ever Bilena that caters to the Filipina youth, another thing that Careline loves about Maris is her relatable beauty. “Her face is very Filipina especially when it comes to her morena skin. And, of course, having her as part of the family makes us even prouder as a homegrown brand,” says Miya.
And if you’re olive-skinned like Maris, she’s got the perfect hack when it comes to makeup. The “Tala” singer reveals, “I want to embrace my skin color, so I usually go for darker shades of foundation and then contour. Parang nasa beach ka. They should be a little darker pero dapat mukhang natural.”
Aside from her all-Filipina features, her take on beauty isn’t too complicated which makes her even more perfect to be a role model for girls who are just starting their journey with makeup. According to Miya, Maris’ go-to product will always be the Lip & Cheek Tint, a non-drying gel-based must-have if you want to have that fresh, no-fuss look.

Adding to her makeup staples, Maris also counts on the Careline Oil Control Face Powder, Careline Oil Control Blush On, Careline Jelly Tint, Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick In Bloom shade, and Careline Graphic-Ink Liner.
As Careline’s newest ambassador, Maris had first dibs on the new products that the brand is currently brewing. From a gloss that adapts to your natural lip color to a wider range of lipstick shades, Careline’s future releases will surely make every girl’s beauty journey all the more exciting! And now that we have Maris to tag along, finding the balance between making bold beauty choices while staying true to who we are will come easy–and much more fun!
