While we're loving the new batch of binibinis who will represent our country in the international arena, our past winners will stay forever loved and famed. A binibini will always be a binibini, but more beautiful than ever—look at the past three titleholders of Miss Universe-Philippines, whose ethereal beauties are all peg-worthy:
1. Ara Arida. With her sexy, wavy 'do, a brand new Ara Arida has emerged—a more womanly version of herself, standing out amongst them rest of the beauty queens who sport long hair. She resonates chic in that nice, long neckline that bares some skin without actually revealing too much—it's in her confidence that she's able to work it. Cop Ara and chop off, braid, and let loose those locks—it's hot, anyway!—and strip away your shyness and show a bit of skin without going overboard when you dress up. The secret? Balance. Covered up from waist to toes? Go for a chic sleeveless top or a nice v-neck top.
2. MJ Lastimosa. Get dreamy and pretty—the MJ Lastimosa way. Aside from achieving that hot bod she has (did you see the intricately-designed, body-hugging gown she wore at the Binibining Pilipinas 2016 festivities?), she never fails to put her best face forward. Putting emphasis on her eyes by way of sexy neutral-toned eyeshadows, bold eyeliner, a thick coat of mascara, and strong arches, she's captivating in the truest sense. Stock up on eye makeup on your next trip to your favorite beauty boutique, and start learning updo skills on via Youtube hair tutorials.
3. Pia Wurtzbach. Pia doesn't take her Miss Universe appeal to rest. She usually opts for a natural makeup look—dewy face and lovely doe eyes—and big hair for a statement-making contrast (angelic and femme fatale at the same time). Be beautiful a la Queen P and get this look by focusing on the base a.k.a your face. If you're oily, sop up excess shine by packing oil blotters in your bag, and in terms of eye makeup, don't ever skip (or scrimp on!) mascara. And of course, make this your motto: #bighairwins.
