WATCH: Pia Wurtzbach's beauty pageant makeup tutorial
MANILA, Philippines – Reigning Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach is back with a new makeup tutorial on Facebook, this time showing us how she achieves her glowing (and winning!) look specifically for the stage.
It's time to share all her secrets. #MissUniversepic.twitter.com/ltbu0Ds4ip— Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (@MissUniverse) October 18, 2016
We learn some things about what it's really like behind the scenes of a pageant, and how to fix your makeup keeping in mind the camera flashes and strong lights. Pia said she's always done her own makeup, though some women may opt to have a makeup artist on board.
Pia also shows us some of her tricks – baking makes an appearance again in this video – and in one of them, she actually uses face powder as eyeshadow.
She says that it may take a little over an hour if you're doing your own makeup for a pageant – much longer than a usual day-to-day look, as this is makeup for the stage.
And her one rule? Don't overdo it. "You have to know when to put your brush down," says Pia. – Rappler.com
