She’s been making heads turn since she first won the Binibining Pilipinas-Universe crown in 1982, but Ma’ Rosa actress Maria Isabel Lopez proved she still has it when she struck a pose at the recent Cannes Film Festival in France. What’s her secret? For the beauty queen-turned-actress, it takes more than just what you see on the outside to become a real scene-stealing beauty.


1. Feel Relaxed
“Always have your chest out and tuck in your stomach lalo na kung ang bewang mo ay medyo makapal, always pull up. Pull up and tuck in. Tapos pag medyo wala kang puwet, usli ng puwet.”



2. Know Your Best Colors
“If your kind of a few pounds overweight, stick to the dark, solid colors. Huwag kang magsuot ng bulaklakin na malalaki. Tapos stick to the more solid colors. Ngayon if your kind of slim naman, puwede ka magsuot ng light colors like white basta huwag lang yung mga wide na print kasi the idea is to always be photographed looking slim. So kung hindi ka ganun ka-slim, dayain mo na!



3. Find Your Angle
“If you notice, lahat ng posing ko naka-3/4, kumbaga hindi ako nagfro-frontal ng face puwera na lang kung ma-capture ako (sa candid). Know your angle kung left cheek or right cheek ang mas flattering. Kagaya ko sa right cheek. Lahat ng post ko sa Instagram right cheek.”

4. Use Your Hair
"Kung ang mukha mo malapad, use the hair as a frame. Kumbaga sa picture frame, naka-frame din yung face mo pero using your hair di ba?”



5. Smile From the Heart
Yung mental attitude ko lagi is to have fun because you want to have a sincere smile. I always give this tip sa mga beauty contestants. Don’t have a smile na fake na parang napipilitan ka na lang. Kailangan you monitor your thoughts. Think of pleasant, happy thoughts. Or yung funny or exciting para matawa ka and yung smile mo sincere. Love what your doing para yung pagka-sincere mo hindi plastic. Gusto ko yung smile na totoo.”


6. Be Genuine
“Don’t try too hard. When you see a camera pointed at you, make love to the camera!"
