Two of my closest friends – Pong and Tdex – were here at my place last night. Tdex will be away for a week, leaving us on his birthday 😦 Since there is really nothing much to do here, I asked them to help me in creating my list of favorites for the official photos of the Miss Universe 2013 candidates. I posted my favorite glam shots yesterday. I also went on to complete my list of favorite swimsuit photos. Tdex helped me with the evening gown photos and I assigned Pong to choose her favorite Portrait Photos.
I specifically requested for her to cover the portrait photos because she has valuable inputs on make-up and beauty. I listen to her opinions and I believe that she will be a very good make-up/beauty products blogger and reviewer if only she will write more often! Please do me a favor and visit Pong’s Blog! I am sure that you will learn more about beauty products 🙂 Every time we talk about beauty queens, Pong is consistent in saying that I should go for those who look young because they always win and always avoid those matronly and looks more mature than her age. I am pretty sure that in this list, she chose those who are uber beautiful and fresh-faced candidates. This is, at the end of the day, serves as their beauty shots as well.
So here are our favorite portrait shots. Actually, all of the choices were hers and I just had one or two inputs (Hahahaha!) But I ended up loving her choices as well… The one-liner for each candidate is also from Pong – no filters, all original 😀
