Miss Universe Philippines 2020: Top 20 best hair and makeup challenge photos

The 48 Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates do not just have beautiful faces. They all know how to effectively apply makeup on them.

In the second episode of the beauty pageant’s “The Ring Light” series titled “What Makes You Blush,” the candidates learned makeup and hair techniques from beauty experts. On October 5, 2020, photos of the candidates holding a cosmetic product after applying makeup and styling their hair were posted on the pageant’s official Facebook page.

I and my colleague Erica Diaz Mendoza Lao judged the photos in a marketing standpoint. How well did the candidates sell the product? We scored them from 0 to 10. 0 means “No, I won’t but that product and I’ll urge my friends not to buy it, too.” 10 means “Yes, I’ll definitely buy it and will encourage my friends to buy it, too.”

In fairness, most of them did very well. All of the photos not included in the list are good but they become mediocre if put beside the photos that perfectly showcased the product. A few faces were drowned either by too much makeup or too much lighting while some photos are simply confused when it comes to which product is being sold exactly.

Other than that, kudos to all the candidates. This is a very successful challenge. Here are our Top 20 picks:
