Some of the most beautiful women from all over the world, a.k.a part of the 65th Miss Universe roster of candidates, arrived on Philippine shores over the weekend for some initial pre-pageant festivities, and we're sure enjoying witnessing their adventures around the Philippines, as much as they're enjoying their stay in the country:
Miss Philippines Universe Maxine Medina's also been stepping up to the challenge of being the host candidate and her fellow queens are impressed.
While we can't get enough of their travels around our archipelago, we're also lovin' their beauty looks, created by no less than talented Filipino makeup artists on MAC Cosmetics' roster (save for celebrity makeup artist Albert Kurniawan, who's Indonesian, and was personally enlisted by Miss Indonesia and also did makeup for Maxine), which is the pageant's official makeup sponsor. Click through the gallery for their flawless close-ups.
