The MPE2017 Candidates with last night’s judges for the Beauty of Face Pre-Judging
The order for last night’s Beauty of Face Preliminary Judging for Miss Philippines Earth 2017 at F1 Hotel Manila was loud and clear. Faces will be judged. No make-ups. No frills. Just plain natural looks that should be projected by each candidate. And the ladies followed.
All dressed in white, they paraded in front of the judges – composed of Photographer Raymund Isaac, Designer Mixy Valencia, Beauty Queens Justine Gabionza & Priscilla Meirelles, Personality Coach Ping Valencia and Fashion Stylist/Model Bea Constantino.
Check out some of the photos below. A lot of them actually looked more fetching without heavy makeup and in person so judging was not the easiest.
