When I was 13, my mum told me "Honey, I dreamt of you winning @missuniverse in a red dress." At that time I thought nothing of it, and today my mother's dream came true. ? Where do I even begin? Lord God, I lift everything up to you - to glorify and honour you. ?? Philippines ???? what an amazing honor it has been to carry your name across my chest and to embody you in all aspects. I may now carry the sash of Miss Universe, but I'll forever be your Miss Philippines. ??????

Just like any other woman, there are also days when Catriona takes a break from the glitz and glam of show business and pageant life. Yes, that means giving makeup a rest and going barefaced!

There's no denying that the beauty queen looks gorgeous with or without makeup. Take a look at these photos and be inspired to walk out the door sans heavy foundation, even just for a day. That's right, ladies—staying committed to your skincare routine definitely pays off!
