The Bb. Pilipinas 2018 candidates spent the afternoon in Valley Golf, Antipolo, Rizal for the grand reveal of Ever Bilena as this year’s official make-up sponsor. The ladies arrived clad in identical pink tank tops and minimal make-up for the midday affair, which included a make-up tutorial and a luncheon with Ever Bilena executives.
The Binibinis then switched to black tank tops and were then treated to a live make-up demo, in which Bb.#3 Murielle Orais served as the model. Mild chatter with members of the press followed soon after and Bb. #19 Michelle Gumabao, who was among the most requested for interviews.
Four stunners emerged as the sponsors’ favorites in the mock pageant, which concluded the event. The winners were:
Miss Ever Bilena Advance: Bb. #3 – Murielle Orais
Miss Blackwater: Bb. #19 – Michelle Gumabao
Miss Careline: Bb. #1 – Vickie Rushton
The overall winner, aptly titled Miss Ever Bilena, was Bb. #20 Catriona Gray.
The results bode well for the four ladies who were all touted as pre-pageant favorites. Whether or not their momentum will continue until the big night, we will find out this March. Congratulations to the winners and good luck to all the Binibinis!
