Beauty Pageants Philippines Preparation

beauty pageants Philippines

Beauty Pageants Philippines Preparation I attended a Miss Teen Barangay Pageant 2014 (age range 13-19 years old) held in one tiny area in Cebu.  10 years ago, the preparation didn’t include serious rehearsals months before the beauty pageant. The girls would be oriented a day or a week before the event and that was it. The gowns were not extremely stunning, elegant and eye catching. Beauty pageant preparationBut now, 2014… well, the pageant has evolved.  The talent is exponentially more complex and diverse.  For example, 10 years ago there was just a “dance” category, but now the competition is open to many sub-categories of dance such as tango, hip hop, belly dance and more. Before, singing with a powerful R&B voice like Whitney or Celine Dion was the only way to get recognition. Now other genre are appreciated such as acoustic, jazz etc. Ever wonder why Philippines beauty queen representatives keep winning back to back international pageants?  Lets analyze and elaborate.

What are the preparations made before the pageant?

 

1. Production rehearsalsbeauty pageants 6 “Practice makes perfect” so rehearsal is taken seriously from songs to the dance steps. The girls have repeated their performances and practiced a month before the event.  The organizers ensure that everyone has memorize the dance routine and properly project themselves as real beauty queens.

 

2. Introduction number

“First impressions are lasting impressions.” The intro must be very well presented by the contestant by introducing their place of origin.  Their entry are always going to leave a lasting impression on the rest of the performance. introduction number of Miss Universe Philippines 2013

3. Casual Wear – “Looking good is the best revenge.” — Ivana Trump.  One of the categories in the Miss Teen competition is “casual wear” which means business attire (pants suites and business skirts).  In the Miss Teen pageant, it went way beyond “casual clothes”.  It is very elegant, fancy, casual wear that projects an image of both beauty and brains. beauty pageants Philippines

4. Talentbeauty pageants 4“Your talent is God given, what you do with it is your gift back to God” — Leo Buscaglia.  The talents presented are now more diverse.  They range from different song genre, belly dancing, Hawaiian dance and  hiphop. An exotic fire dancing which you used to see in a circus only are now performed by a future beauty queen. Beatbox Talent of Miss World Philippines 2012 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za_kP1yD3Jo

 

5. Gownbeauty pageants 4 (2) Stunning evening gown is one big part of winning the crown. Since there are many contestants, having a glamorous and very eye catching gown gives you a chance to be one step ahead of the others. It is also important to show off your femininity and be the very definition of a ‘woman’. “Your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to show you’re a lady.” — Edith Head.

 

 

 

6. Fun wear -“I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.” — Aaliyah.

7. A Beauty Queen hair and make up -The overall beauty of the contestants includes a good hairdo and perfect make up. It is one of the most important aspects of getting the crown and it is a criteria for the judges. Beauty pageant contestants always have a back up make up artist and PA’s (personal assistants) to have their make up retouch and to help them dressing up.

性感的菲律宾女人

性感的菲律宾女人-Megan_Young_01

菲律宾女人有各种体型,从娇小到丰满,你不会再发现亚洲女人的多样性,比不了这些性感可爱甜心。也许混合的西班牙血统,使得她们有点暴躁。她们也很感性,并且性热烈。超越其他东南亚人,她们迷人和亲密到了过分的地步。

性感的菲律宾女人在菲律宾随处可见。最为一个外国人,我发现的一件事是,我第一次去宿雾岛期间,那里性感的菲律宾女人是多么壮观。她们是个大的混合体,从中国/韩国人/日本人的外貌到欧洲人的白皮肤,再到异国风味的焦糖色的菲律宾女人。
一旦进入菲律宾,你将注意到性感的菲律宾女人只是沿街行走。并且许多都是非常不错,尽管不习惯与不认识的人打招呼(甚至是说“你好”)。

在东南亚,她们保持着生理上无与伦比的多样性。
菲律宾大多数女性都平胃娇小。由于她们混合了住在群岛上的原始菲律宾血统,这些原始菲律宾人非常的短小,与西方女性相比她们相对娇小。

由于比内女人多数与其他种族混合,所以她们的皮肤颜色从红褐色到白色,但是常常是光滑无毛,女性本质。

长长的黑亮的头发增添了性感美眉的整体吸引力。毫发未损,乌黑、光滑直发,可以长发及腰。这表现了女人和她的身体。性感美眉常在她们的头发上花费时间,梳理或去美发沙龙进行发质治疗。

性感美眉的另一个秘密是保养身体。她很注自己的身体。当她们发现她们的肚子是胖一点,她们开始限制饮食,为了更容易消化食物她们也吃蔬菜。一些性感美眉定期锻炼,并去健身房或参加体操、尊巴和不同类型的舞蹈来维持好苗条的身材。在菲律宾快餐也比健康食品更贵,所以美眉更喜欢家常菜或购买熟食,这确实帮助她们不会快速增重。

Congratulations to Bea Rose Santiago for winning in beauty pageants and as Miss International 2013!  The 53rd Miss International beauty pageant was held in Shinagawa Prince Hotel Hall in Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday, December 17.

Aside from her beauty, it may have been Bea’s sincere answer that won her the crown. In response to “What will you do if you win?” Bea said,

“The whole world saw how my country suffered. One by one, other countries helped. You have opened my heart and eyes on what we can do to help each other.”

She added, “I will work to sustain the spirit of sympathy and spirit of hope. As long as we work together, there is hope.”

Her win was followed by Miss Netherlands Nathalie den Dekker and Miss New Zealand Lorena Hermida, second runner up.
