Miss Universe is one of the most anticipated events in the pageant scene. Every candidate is on a mission to bring their dreams to life and represent a meaningful cause (not to mention, be the face of the country on a global stage). Additionally, pageants are also essentially a celebration of beauty of all kinds of and Miss Universe Philippines is certainly no exception.
While we're pretty sure every aspiring beauty queen in the pageant can pull off a no-makeup selfie like a pro, we also can't help but admire and take inspo from the candidates' glamorous makeup looks. For our fellow morenas, you'll be glad to know that morena beauty is finding its representation in many of the ladies competing in the pageant, and their makeup game does not disappoint.
If you're looking to brush up on your makeup skills during quarantine, why not start by channeling these crown-worthy beauty looks? From deep reds to rosy pinks, morenas can pull off all kinds of looks, and these Miss Universe Philippines candidates are proof.
Princess Kristha Singh, Pasig City
Let Princess convince you that a pink glossy lip is enough to bring the glam to any occasion.
Ayn Bernos, San Juan City
Nothing says "serious business" better than a deep crimson lip, and Ayn did not come to play with this bold look.
Katrina Dimaranan, Taguig
Who says morenas can't try the glass skin trend? Katrina is out here proving them wrong.
Noelyn Rose Mabuhay Campos, Antique
A rosy pink may not be the go-to color of sunkissed beauties, but Noelyn may just change your mind.
Beatrice Luigi Gomez, Cebu City
Bea is letting her eyes do all the talking with her cocoa-colored cat-eye look.
Megan Julia Roa Digal, Bukidnon
Feathery lashes, a killer combo of shading and highlighting, and an understated matte lippie are a no-brainer look for morenas, as seen on Megan.
Ybonne Ortega, Davao City
Just because the category is glam doesn't mean you can't bring a trusty MLBB shade to the picture. Ybonnes's mauvy look is enough proof.
