Have a Peek Behind the Scenes of the 65th Miss Universe
Miss France Iris Mittenaere, a 24-year-old dental surgery student, was crowned Miss Universe 2016 at the Mall of Asia Arena on Monday.
She bested 85 other beautiful candidates from all over the world for the title previously held by Pia Wurtzbach.
The first runner up was Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier while Miss Colombia Andrea Tovar was second runner up.
Mittenaere’s victory was the first by a French contestant in more than 60 years.
We were lucky to obtain backstage photos from MAC Cosmetics, the Official Makeup Sponsor of Miss Universe Philippines.
Jaycee Matias, MAC Philippines training manager, reveals that that candidates favorite colors were the neutrals like Velvet Teddy, Taupe and Mehr because most of the looks done by the team consisted of smokey eyes and nude lips.
Oh, in case you're wondering what lipstick Mittenaere had on when when she won the crown, it was MAC Amplified Lipstick in Cosmo.
So much beauty! We're proud and honored to have witnessed this all but prouder that all these beauty were brought to our country.
Truly this event has proved how women from all around the world, regardless of whatever differences, are all beautiful queens.
We're all queens here.
