As official makeup sponsor of Miss Universe 2016, M·A·C Cosmetics was present during the first five days of the Miss Universe Candidates in the Philippines.
Upon arrival in Manila, the candidates went through interviews, fittings and final registration to be officially signed as a candidate for the pageant.
M·A·C Cosmetics helped all 68 candidates get glammed up for their official photoshoots. Each candidate was also given a Miss Universe Kit complement their skin tones.
Miss Costa Rica loves her kit.
My neighbor Apple Faraon is a M.A.C makeup artist. When I asked her who her bets are, she said, “All of them are beautiful.
M.A.C sent me hundreds of photos of the first five days. After going through all of them, I came up with my choices for Best in Makeup.
While Miss Albania has an interesting face and shocking hair, I feel her beauty is more for runway than beauty pageant.
Miss Brazil has a beautiful face, but I think her hair looks dated (read: ’80s). She could pass for a contravida in Dynasty.
I feel like this T-shirt isn’t flattering to Miss Colombia. But I am partial to her because she looks like Kerry Washington, who I love.
The white T-shirt looks better on Miss Philppines
Miss Indonesia looks like a winner
Miss Kenya looks perfect
Beautiful Miss Kosovo
Ayaw ni Donald Trump: Miss Mexico
Makeup perfection: Miss Nigeria
Miss Vietnam could pass for prim and proper Mocha Uson
Congrats to the M.A.C Philippines team for an amazing job!
