Albert Kurniawan defines sexy Maxine Medina in this new look
While I do not consider myself an expert when it comes to assessing the applied make-up and finished look of a beauty queen, I know that Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina is registering several notches better in the photos uploaded in this post. Albert Kurniawan defines her brand of sexiness by using a softer color palette. This brings out the natural contour of her face more fluidly. Her lips are also sporting a paler shade that will definitely make people sit up and take notice, instead of hues that could be teetering on clownish for some.
Overall, I am really liking the soft glow of her skin now.
Your thoughts, dear readers? 🙂
How are you liking her here, dear readers?

Bear with me, dear readers. The burning passion within is what fuels my endless desire to serve you blogs, news and updates on everything that matters in pageantry. And I still need to accept important and unexpected engagements in between.
Oh, before I forget, there’s still Christmas and New Year to think of (wow, I haven’t even started on a single holiday shopping yet!)
The mother of Miss International 2016 – Tita Raquel Verzosa – who won’t take no for an answer with her request of going up to the City of Pines to witness more of Kylie’s days of glory (and to which coverage partner Joy Arguil and I said yes to!
Oh, Super Moon, give me thy overflow of energy! 🙂
Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina on CNN Philippines’ The Source
Maxine with host Pinky Webb
To say that Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina is pressured right now would be an understatement. After best friend Nicole Cordoves got 1st Runner-Up during Miss Grand International 2016 and close pal Kylie Verzosa snatching the country’s 6th Miss International crown in Tokyo, the heat is on. And boy, is she really feeling the weight on her shoulders.
But trust our host delegate for The 65th Miss Universe Pageant to settle down her nerves just as easily. Her smile may tell you that going for a back-to-back is something that she will tackle with ease and precision, but deep within, the firm determination keeps getting stronger everyday. If the successes of her Bb. Pilipinas sisters are not enough to motivate her, then the loving support of her fans and followers plus the entire nation should keep her on the right track.
Watch her interview on “The Source” of CNN Philippines with host Pinky Webb and tell me your thoughts after.

Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina
By now, everyone online has been informed of the news that the different National Directors have already received letters from the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) that the 65th edition of the pageant will definitely be held in the Philippines on the morning of January 30, 2017 (or January 29 primetime in the US to be telecast on the Fox Network
). While I am patiently waiting for the official announcement from Paula Shugart and Jonas Gaffud about the hosting, the confirmation of the different NDs can never be denied even if pre-emptive in nature. So this only means that, indeed, your blogger will witness a 3rd Miss Universe pageant on Philippine soil.
And our bet, Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina knew about these developments all along as she is moving along the ticking of the clock and preparing herself for the Most Beautiful Event. As the host delegate, she is ready to welcome everyone with open arms and a ready smile. The task will be heavier but extremely rewarding. Because if that won’t be enough, she is faced with the back-to-back mission to begin with.
Still, let us wait for the official announcement which will be coming very soon, like somewhere around today, November 3? 😀
Waiting for the Official Announcement from MUO
In the meantime, let us watch the video of Maxine for Jewelmer that was entirely shot in Tokyo, Japan.
