Have you ever wondered how beauty queens do their everyday natural look make-up? What products they are they obsessed with? or even what make-up tips & tricks they do to make that “little, yet effective” difference on their looks?

Besides models, social media bloggers, or make-up artists, we rarely see beauty queen such as 2015 Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (Philippines) who shows her bare skin, and teaches viewers on how a step-by-step everyday make-up look is done, starting from priming the skin (very important)!

Here is a YouTube Video make-up tutorial for you to “watch and learn.” From a professional make-up artist’s perspective, I really like her selection of products (not to mention she uses a lot of M·A·C Cosmetics products that I absolutely can’t live without in my make-up kit), her color choices are neutral and suitable for just about all “light, light-medium, medium, medium-dark, slightly tanned” color skintones… in another word, bravo on her choice of products and colors!

In this blog post, I am going to list the make-up products she uses, how meaningful some of the products are, her advocacy work as Miss Universe 2015, and share her make-up tips & tricks that I believe you will find very useful!

Pia’s main advocacy work as Miss Universe 2015’s is to spread HIV/AIDS awareness around the world and end the stigma surrounding the disease/infection!

Special thanks to Pia for choosing M·A·C Vival Gam Lipglass “Ariana Grande” product as her lip color, the final touch to her make-up look. Pia’s main advocacy work as Miss Universe 2015’s is to be vocal about her desire to spread HIV/AIDS awareness around the world and end the stigma surrounding the disease/infection, as well as her fight for gender equality and women empowerment.

M·A·C’s Viva Glam Campaign is fully supporting of people living with HIV & AIDS. With M·A·C’s AIDS FUND, 100 percent (yes, you heard it right, it’s 100%, not part of it) of the selling price of every VIVA GLAM product goes directly to men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. How wonderful is that?

Makeup Expert’s Tips & Tricks & Product Suggestions:

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-lightful-c-marine-bright-formula-softening-lotion

M·A·C Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion

  1. Moisturize your skin! Pia uses M·A·C Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion to instantly refresh, tones, brighten-up, and smooth the skin conditions with its special marine brightening formula.
Best-primers-10-Vogue-MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

M·A·C Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

2. Prime your skin! A smooth, clean skin is so essential in creating that flawless make-up look. Pia’s choice of M·A·C Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Primer “Radiant Pink” is excellent before applying foundation to create a  smooth skin canvas that makes make-up last longer and controls the oil on the skin.

3. “Less is More” is the key with good make-up application. Putting more products on the face, it will become heavy and cake-y. We do not want that for our everyday make-up look. Use foundation and concealer only in areas where needed.

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-studio-sculpt-spf15-foundation

M·A·C Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation

4. Mix colors to get that perfect color match to your skin! For medium, medium-dark skin tones, I often have to mix colors to get the perfect shade. In M·A·C’s system, NC has more golden/olive skin undertone, while the NW has more pinky/rosey undertone. If NC or NW color by itself doesn’t match, you mix both skintone colors to get a perfect skintone match! M·A·C Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation is a gel-based foundation that offers medium to full coverage with a natural satin finish, great for everyday make-up!

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-haute-and-naughty-lash-mascara-black

M·A·C Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara “Black”

5. You want to create a natural defining lash in the day, and make it more dramatic & voluminous for the evening? This two-in-one M·A·C Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara “Black” does the trick for you! One for day, and the other is for evening!

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-mineralize-skinfinish-natural

M·A·C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural “Medium Dark”

6. This baked mineral M·A·C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder is multi-tasking! I have different shades of them in my make-up kit. Asides from its main job to set foundations, or to use as a powder foundation itself, the lighter shades are excellent for highlighting; the darker shade is great for contouring or as a blush / bronzing color. It creates a smooth looking skin while making sure its natural looking.

mac-technakohl-liner-graphblack

M·A·C Technakohl Liner “Graphblack”

7. Tight Eye Liner does the magic of creating a natural defining eye line without looking you are a wearing eye liner. M·A·C Technakohl Liner “Graphblack” is a mechanical pencil-style liner with a soft and creamy formula and intense color. Its long wearing and safe for use in the waterline. Tight eye lining does take practice though, and be careful not to poke the liner into your eyes.

mac-wash-and-dry-eye-brows-brow-set

M·A·C Eye Brows and Brow Set

8. Mixing shades of: light, medium and dark colors when sculpting your brows can add a 3-D effect to make it more realistic looking. One color eye brow can sometime look flat. M·A·C Eye Brows pencil is self-propelling and self-sharpening brow definer that adds shape, color and density. The colors that I like to have are: Brunette, Fling, Spiked, and Lingering.

Pageant Makeup Tutorial – AFTER

If you are into beauty pageant looks, Pia also showed another tutorial on Beauty Pageant Make-up Look that she did on herself for Miss Philippines and Miss Universe beauty pageants! Some key points for pageant make-ups (on stage) are:

  • Use foundation that is good for HD (high definition) and choose a shade that is half to one shade darker than your natural skin tone because stage lights, flashes will tend to wash away colors.
  • Do contour and highlight! This will bring more definition, and make yourself more photogenic on prints & videos!
  • Use neutral colors such as browns for: brows, eyes, contours, and cheek colors. They are timeless and classic.

Miss Universe 2015: Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (Philippines) │ 2015環球小姐由菲律賓小姐摘冠

Miss Universe 2015 Crowning-2

·

On December 20, 2015, Miss Universe host Steve Harvey made a major slip at the crowning moment of the ceremony held at Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas. The host announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the pageant.

Gutierrez was wearing the pageant crown when Harvey returned to the stage to apologize, as the real winner was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of Philippines. He said: “I will take responsibility. It was my mistake … Please don’t hold it against the ladies.”

Despite the awkward crowning moment made by the host, Miss Philippines took the crown to be the 64th Miss Universe winner, also the third Filipino title holder (previously 1969, 1973) of the most celebrated beauty pageants in the globe.

During the final question round when asked why she wanted to be Miss Universe, Wurtzbach replied that, “I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country.”

“I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidently beautiful with a heart,” she said. Congratulations to Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach for the title, and an exciting journey of a lifetime!

This is the very first MU pageant hosted after Donald Trump sold the Miss Universe Organization (also includes Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageant groups) to the agency WME/IMG in September 2015. Post the event, the U.S. President candidate Trump wrote on Twitter:

“Very sad what happened last night at the Miss Universe Pageant. I sold it 6 months ago for a record price. This would never have happened!”

·

哥倫比亞小姐阿雷巴洛廿日只戴了兩分鐘「環球小姐」后冠,她在拉斯維加斯的決賽主持人宣布她封后,激動地被加冕,並向全場獻飛吻後,又聽到主持人鄭重道歉,宣布她是第二名,今年環球小姐是菲律賓小姐伍茲巴赫,接著阿雷巴洛被摘下后冠,大會重新為伍茲巴赫加冕。

推特用戶對這個錯誤感到不可置信,「#二○一五年環球小姐」(#MissUniverse)成為當晚最熱門的推特主題標籤 。哥倫比亞總統桑托斯被迫修改他的恭賀推文。他在宣布哥倫比亞小姐封后後推文:「哥倫比亞人,世界最美的女人。」之後改成:「妳仍是我們心目中的環球小姐。」

大擺烏龍的主持人是美國喜劇演員哈維(Steve Harvey),他在進入決選的最後兩位佳麗等候宣布評審結果時,高聲宣布:「哥倫比亞小姐!」全場歡聲雷動,但在哥倫比亞小姐風光戴上后冠後,哈維又跑上台說,卡片上寫的是哥倫比亞小姐是亞軍,他看錯了,他並把名單在轉播的鏡頭前秀出來。

哥倫比亞小姐一臉茫然,站在後方的菲律賓小姐則是難以置信的睜大眼一臉錯愕,身旁的美國小姐提醒她才回過神來。哥倫比亞小姐被摘下后冠時仍力持鎮定擠出微笑,許多佳麗上前安慰她。

哈維事後推文道歉,但起先還把兩位佳麗的國名拼錯,後來才更正。他說:「我要誠心向哥倫比亞小姐和菲律賓小姐道歉,我犯了天大錯誤,感覺糟透了。」這段道歉推文被轉傳了逾七萬次。

第一次主持環球小姐選美的哈維說,他把卡片再看一遍,發現錯誤,再去問製作人。主辦單位也說,哈維主動改正錯誤。

哥倫比亞小姐阿雷巴洛在後台對粉絲說:「每件事都有理由,我為自己的表現高興。」

菲律賓小姐伍茲巴赫說:「我很難過,不是我拿走她的后冠,我祝福她。」

臉書用戶也在環球小姐官方專頁貼文。克立夫說:「處理得糟透了。兩名佳麗都應獲得道歉,兩人都很尷尬。我能感受她們的痛苦。」這則貼文被分享六萬兩千多次,並獲一萬七千多則留言。

菲律賓粉絲也表達不滿。有人貼文說:「我們菲律賓小姐失去了最光彩的一刻。這種感覺就像她和我們國家的勝利時刻被剝奪了,多倒楣!」

地產大亨川普也留言:「昨晚發生的事很悲哀,我六個月前賣掉環球小姐組織,不然不會發生這種事。」川普六月表示墨西哥非法移民是強暴犯,惹惱西語電視台Univision,因而拒絕轉播環球小姐選美,川普被迫賣掉他的所有權。

OLIVIA CULPO

  • Country: USA
  • Hometown: Cranston
  • Age: 20
  • Bio:

On June 3, 2012, Olivia Culpo was crowned Miss USA 2012 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 20-year-old cellist of Cranston, Rhode Island became the first titleholder from her state to capture the crown.

The middle child of five children, Olivia decided to compete for the title of Miss Rhode Island USA on a whim. With determination and a passion for performing on stage, Olivia captured her state title in a $20 “Rent The Runway” dress that was too short and had a tear in the back. Her road to the crown continued in Las Vegas where she wowed the judges in a purple Sherri Hill dress and a poised response to the twitter question regarding transgender contestants.

Both of Olivia’s parents began their professional lives as musicians and raised her in a musically rich surrounding. She began studying the cello in the second grade and from there participated in the Rhode Island Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, RI Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble, Bay View Orchestra and Rhode Island All-State Orchestra. Olivia also won a seat in the Boston Symphony Hall, Boston; Carnegie Hall, New York City; and a tour of England in 2010. Until recently, Olivia was performing with the Boston Accompanietta.

Olivia, who has called herself a “cellist nerd,” graduated with high honors and a member of the National Honor Society in 2010 from St. Mary Academy Bay View. Throughout high school, Olivia’s love for Italian language gave her the opportunity to take part in two foreign language programs in Milano, Italy. As a sophomore at Boston University, she has been placed on the Dean’s List every semester. Olivia will place her education on hold while performing her duties as Miss USA for the next year.

An admirer of Audrey Hepburn, Olivia keeps a journal of the actress’s quotes and even resembles the classical beauty. Shortly after being crowned, Olivia serenaded her press conference attendees while singing one of her favorite Audrey Hepburn songs, “Funny Face,” from the 1957 film. The day after her win, she arrived in New York City where she will reside as Miss USA. During her reign, Olivia will serve as a spokesperson for breast and ovarian cancer and will work closely with organizations such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Gilda’s Club. She will also work with the USO as part of the Miss Universe Organization’s dedication to supporting our troops.
