ABQ’s Favorite Head Shots in Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013


Oh fiddlesticks! I missed the Press Presentation of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013 (July 11, 2013) because I had a shoot for Studio 23’s reality show – Gusto Kong Maging Beauty Queen – happening at the same time. I’m a guest judge in that show.

But I’ll definitely be at the Mutya 2013 coronation  at the NBC Tent on July 26, 2013!

Anyway, below are the 31 official candidates of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013.

Names in RED are my ULTIMATE favorite headshots and those in GREEN are my next favorite ones. Just want to clarify that they are not my favorite girls to win Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013. I’m keeping my favorite girls a secret until coronation night out of delicadeza since I was involved in the Metro Manila screening as a judge.

This list of favorites is purely based on the photos I liked best. My criteria are: 1) make-up naturally flows with the girl’s beauty, 2) photogenic quality of the contestant, 3) a smile that reflects a strong personality and 4) styling.

What about you? Whose head shots do you like the best?
