Representing the Philippines in ensemble after ensemble of proudly Filipino designs, the 24-year-old stunner has made it a point to wow the crowd, with the help of her stylists, Team Rain x Em. You'll also be surprised to know that she has been doing her hair and makeup all by herself these days, without the help of a glam team in tow. Trained by makeup artists Seph Madrid, Carissa Cielo Medved, and Mickey See, Rabiya is well-equipped to do her own looks, and she does so effortlessly! 


In the gallery that follows, we break down each of Rabiya's show-stopping beauty statements, as we count the days down to the Miss Universe coronation night!
