Komi Says: Iba ang magandang mukha sa makinis na balat

Truefact

#REALTALK: Having a smooth, flawless, poreless and healthy skin will only make you look maaliwalas (it is a Tagalog word for “clear,” literally speaking, but figuratively speaking, it means “pleasant”)… but not necessarily pretty or beautiful, speaking of facial features and symmetry.

Nagiging maganda lang without makeup sa paningin ng tao despite the huge, dark eyebags just because of your healthy, smooth, flawless and poreless skin–in other words, KUTIS MAHARLIKA! Pero speaking of facial features, by elitist beauty standards (well, not necessarily discriminatory, though), they’re not necessarily maganda ang mukha.

My definition of pretty face? ‘Yung may SOPHISTICATED facial features tsaka classic ang dating, which other makinis girls do not have… kahit porselana ang kutis nilang maharlika! Also, even though they get DARK… will have flaws on their face… they still look good.

Actually, big, dark eyebags only look good for women who are of a darker skin tone. No kidding, mas nadadala pa nila ng tama, kumpara naman sa mga kutis porselana pero facial features pa lang, so-so ang dating.

You know why I am always pertaining towards Mariel Rodriguez and Kitchie Nadal for this one. I have never heard of people desiring for their face… or just a few people, but I think it won’t reach majority of Filipina girls and women. As much as I have read feedback from netizens, all they desire from Mariel and Kitchie is their skin type, not their facial features.

Side Note: Sadly, by Filipino beauty standards, basta makinis at walang flaws ang balat mo, maganda ka na kaagad, kahit hindi gaano ka-stunning ang facial features mo. Kaya naman pala, everyone thinks that Wendy Valdez is “sayang” because she’s good-looking but she ain’t blessed with a healthy skin.

Well, pagdating sa face value, talo pa sila ni Ellen Adarna. Girls and women do not necessarily desire for her skin type–they desire her FACIAL FEATURES: Face shape, wide forehead, pointy nose, luscious lips and of course, her cat eyes. Kung ilalagay si Ellen sa DLSU, she would be the crush ng bayan, not just an ordinary-looking girl-next-door in the campus.

Sometimes, we have the impression that there are some better-looking people who ain’t blessed with a flawless skin will bloom more than their naturally-makinis counterparts if they become makinis.

Sans the pimple marks… they’ll look great! No kidding!

Ellen may not be blessed with a 100% flawless skin (she is freckled… but thankfully she has no skin problems), but guess what? She will still look good kahit magka-pimple marks pa siya sa mukha niya.

Everyone was worried when they saw Sarah Meier and Daiana Menezes in person. Actually, hindi raw maganda ang keratin structure ni Sarah Meier (that’s the problem of most halfies of European descent) kaya they didn’t find her pretty. Well, if you’re blessed with healthy skin, your hair is flat-straight at the same time–with glossy shine pa ‘yan, ah!

If you were to ask me, although I do not find Daiana very attractive (mas gusto ko pa si Priscilla Meirelles), I still find her stunning. Same with Sarah Meier. Sometimes, it’s not about the smooth skin that you possess, it’s just the X-factor that matters, and that includes how you interact with non-celebrities.

It is a FACT that a smooth, flawless skin texture will actually transform so-so facial features to a stunning one. I ain’t kidding, either. Basta so-so looking face… pero makinis ang balat mo, automatically maganda ka na.

Well, my couz is actually still good-looking despite the pimple marks! Thing is, she looks older than her age.

The Flawed versus Flawless

Sometimes, beauty really varies. However, I just think that Filipino beauty standards are becoming hypocritical nowadays. Ang basehan lang nila ng maganda kahit walang makeup? Just a smooth, flawless skin. Kung ikukumpara mo lang sina Majarot at Kubeta kay Lovita at Yenggay, the latter two are still BETTER-LOOKING in person compared to the former two. Siguro, if you’re going to delve in Japanese and Korean beauty standards, Lovi and Yeng will surely stand out! Trust me!

No wonder, hindi ko pala type si Cass Ponti (the ex-PBB star)–she’s sexy, but speaking of face value, I think nadala lang ‘yan sa skin type niya. Infairness, makinis ang kanyang sun-kissed glow. But my ex-crush likes her (hypocritically… hak hak! Mas type pa niya ang Yamato Nadeshiko kesa sa Ipanema Girl).

Also, by Japanese and Korean standards, Majarot and Kubeta won’t be well-liked. Past issues pa lang, they will either be the next Erika Sawajiri or the next Nozomi Sasaki–or the next Ceci Zhang Baizhi. Or they might be forced to end up like the late Jang ja-yeon and/or Choi Jin-shil (RIP). By Japanese standards, they have some similarities with Filipino standards–act like goody-two-shoes, and you will be well-liked. No wonder, basta maganda ang reputasyon sa publiko, sila pa ang may loyal fanbase, kumpara naman sa mga maraming mga isyu sa buhay. Bueno, kaya masama parin ang lipunang Pilipino kay AA Klenk, ngunit pinapatawad nila ang mga kagaya ni Anne Curtis. At least, si Anne Curtis, hindi siya gagawa ng isyu para lang mapag-usapan, consistency-wise. She makes mistakes, and HELL, she isn’t ashamed of admitting those things. Guys, if someone will admit their mistakes, don’t think na nilalaglag nila ang sarili nila. I was at the same stage as Anne, but then, at the end of the day, it’s up to society or a certain group whether they will judge you or not. If Anne Curtis slapped JLC and slut-shamed Phoem in the Prive (well, I won’t make an article about this one since it’s too boring for me to discuss), then that’s because juice detox + drinking wine = NOT GOOD. Anne did a big mistake right there–and she only did it once. Please guys, especially to Twitter peepz, you have to analyze deeply why people will always think that AA will always and forever will be negative in the eyes of Filipino society while Anne C. is being forgiven. Pagdating siguro sa public image, Anne knows how to handle herself–she may act posh, fitting in the crowd or being herself. I do not buy the fact that acting sweet means being fake/hypocrite. As a matter of fact, Ellen acted sweet (well, not in a pa-tweetums manner) despite her track record, and Marian Rivera never started being palengkera during her heydays. Annabelle Rama also never started being palengkera, though she has this “mataray” demeanor ever since her kids entered showbiz. It’s a matter of fact of starting your career WITH CLEAN HANDS before you enter show business. Ellen made sure that she enters showbiz with CLEAN HANDS, leaving everything behind.

Unfortunately, Majarot entered the showbiz with clean hands, yet she was never pansinin. She only started to earn fame when she and John Wayne Sace became together (GTalkers, I know you’re biased to Maja-rot like the rest of the FP-tards right there!). AA, on the other hand, entered showbiz untidy–although she was not very pansinin that time. At least, Maja-rot entered showbiz CLEAN, unlike KubetAA who entered showbiz the not-so clean way, tapos she earned her fame her OWN way via controversies alone. Without these controversies, she won’t step out from the shadows of her onee-chan.

I do not know why, but people on Twitter will just think about AA’s assets and physical attributes more than her attitude. It seems that people will just say, “I just like your face and assets, PERIOD.” Eh, sinong matinong taong magkaka-gusto sa ugali ni KubetAA, hindi po ba? One more thing, kung totoong tao talaga si AA, why is she trying to conceal her evils by claiming to be a God-fearing person? To fit in the pa-tweetums celebrities? Goodness, I hate comparing her again to Singapore, pero at least si Singapore, she does not need to brag about her faith. Kung tutuusin pa nga, ang mga walang bahid sa track record ay ‘yung mga hindi masyadong religious, eh. Of course, ask me something, I will tell you that I’m not a religious person at all. As a matter of fact, I also find Buddhism and Islam something to look up to as well.

Call me an obsessive hater of KubetAA (take that quote from Tanders!). Okay, I am not focusing on her looks alone–as a matter of fact, how will we be soooooooooooooo forgiving and tolerant to AA if she will not stop having the reputation of “gagawa lang ng isyu para lang mapag-usapan”? Ganun siya, eh. Rather than being a “totoong tao,” she’s only an attention-seeker. Papansin masyado, in other words. Kaya the next time you see her with another kabit moments or another catfight, you’d rather not wonder why she’s not stopping from being a palengkerang homewrecker. Palibhasa’y she was not given a good upbringing–in other words, she was over-appreciated unlike her sister, who grew up learning from her mistakes and developing a certain character that will please anyone effortlessly. Well, hindi rin people-pleaser si Ara-san, pero she proved her worth as a person and as an entertainer naman. Naaawa lang ako sa kanya mainly because pagod na siyang pagtakpan si AA. Yes, ganun siya ka-protective kay AA tuwing gagawa ng isyu ang kapatid. Ngunit… she has to rest.

Siguro kung hindi pakawala si KubetAA, I would not care at all. If she wants to prove her worth as a totoong tao, tantanan na niya ang gumawa ng isyu dahil hindi ‘yun nakakatulong sa imahe niya–lalo na sa karir na ina-alagaan niya. As a matter of fact, she should just shut her arse up and do the clean job.

Back to topic, I think that AA is only good-looking because of her smooth skin. Well, swerte niya, gustong-gusto ng mga tao ang kinis ng balat niya, eh face value? Hindi nakapagtatakang siya ay nasa FHM’s sexiest–nasa Top 10 lang siya mainly because of her face value and assets. Period.

Kung tunay ngang maganda ang isang tao, kailangang nadadaan talaga sa charisma at sa authentic face value pa lang–hindi lang sa kinis ng balat. I doubt, Mariel and Kitchie is the “crush ng bayan” type when they were still in DLSU. I bet, they’re just average joes there, unlike Ellen, ilagay mo lang siya sa DLSU, she would stand out.

Both Mariel and Kitchie possess the “kutis maharlika,” and that’s it. Usually, most Lasallians are expected to have the “kutis maharlika” by certain standards, but some people do not have that skin type. Eh, imagine-in niyo naman, everyone suffers from getting acne problems and also dark eyebags. Ang mga nagpo-possess ng mga ganyang skin type ay usually mga people of East Asian descent or people who have experienced the good life. You do not expect Wendy Valdez to have a “kutis maharlika” mainly because she comes from the poor, kaya siya nag-Japayuki, hindi ba? As a matter of fact, rather than investing on having a smooth, flawless skin, she rather underwent a boob job–and guess what? Hindi naman bagay sa kanya ang boobs niya, sa totoo lang. Parang si Angelina Jolie, actually. Remember what I said before, if you’re skinny and have a cup-C (0r D, worse if it’s a DD) chest and above, whether it’s real or not, it’s ugly (unless you’re Halle Berry, lol). VERY FUGLY. No offense to these women to belong to this category! I really don’t like it, actually (ask me if I were to get skinny, I prefer to be flat-chested mainly because I won’t be pressured to cover those boobies). Well, Wendy should have invested on having her skin smooth rather, because it will suit her, and it will make her even more stunning!

Well guys, I am not discouraging you to have a smooth, flawless skin. Everyone of us does desire for being smooth-skinned. However, please don’t measure one’s worth by their face value alone and skin texture, because sometimes, beauty standards become hypocritical as time passes by.

#KomiSays: Comments pa lang, kutis maharlika LAMANG ang gusto nila kay Mariel at Kitchie… pero mukha? As in trade/switch faces!? Wala akong sasabihing malisyoso… ngunit sa totoo lang, wala silang sinabi kay Ellen Adarna. Sa totoo lang!

  2. Reblogged this on Da Adbentyurs of Senyor Komi and commented:
    Presenting to you… the article I have posted when I didn’t have an official blog yet.

    Anyways, I just really do not get it why in Filipino society, basta makinis ang balat mo naturally, maganda ka na kaagad. I mean, yeah, you have nice skin but that does not always translate to pretty features.

    Kung ako nga ang tatanungin, mas maganda pa ang mukha ni Wendy Valdez, kung ikukumpara mo naman siya kina Mariel Rodriguez at Kitchie Nadal, ‘no!? (BTW, the latter two are known for being pretty in person without makeup because of their KUTIS MAHARLIKA)

    Wendy Valdez, however, had bad skin. That’s why she’s not so pretty (by Filipino standards), but her features could pass for pretty.

    Basta maputi at makinis ang balat tapos straight pa ang buhok mo, maganda ka na kaagad, kahit hindi masyadong kagandahan ang features ng mukha mo (e.g., ugly nose, regardless if it is pango or matangos, or prolly a not-so-good facial symmetry).

    Well, one thing that Wendy Valdez lacks is a beautiful body. It only improved when she transferred to TV5. And don’t you know that she had a boob job (which many people deny!)?

    I personally think MSP is OK (*ehem* MORE THAN OK)-looking (even though she does not consider herself pretty LOL)–kahit tadtad pa siya ng zits o wrinkles, hindi parin ina-agnas ang kagandahan niya hanggang ngayon! Walang sinabi ang mga mestiza’t chinita sa school niya kapag siya ang itatabi sa kanila! You think I am exaggerating!? Hell, Koreans and Japanese people like her eyes (an ahjumma one time gave compliments to her haha)–which is something that many East Asians envy! Even white people!

    I have to THANK megnita for agreeing with me.

    And BTW, I also find Rufa Mae Quinto pretty if she did not touch anything on her face and body! Sayang ang byuti niya, sa totoo lang.

    White skin doesn’t always mean attractive. Anyways, dark eyebags look good on tanned women, I tell you. Kung ilagay ang madilim na eyebags sa maputing tao, ang kinalabasan: QUE HORROR!

    Kaya kapag mga Koreana ang itatanong, they desire for Western look even though there are many Korean women who are attractive without the need for plastic surgery. Blame their society for not allowing them to embrace their own physical individuality and blame superficiality in their culture. I mean, there are MANY (as in totemo TAKUSAN/taksan) Korean women who still LOOK GOOD despite their sharp features. Ask Professor Oh about it (sweetandtastyTV).

    Ask a Korean, I bet she won’t agree with you that having smooth skin is not enough to call a person attractive. Ganun kataas ang standards nila.

    No wonder, many Koreans envy Filipinas for their simple yet elegant beauty. Kaya effort talaga silang magpaganda not just because of their society, but it’s because for them to totally fit in their society.

    I know a lot of people who still look good despite the zits. Jusko, marami namang makinis ang balat, pero mukha namang matanda! Pero kung sino pa ang maraming zits tapos pangit pa ang balat, marami sa kanila ay baby face.

    AND REMEMBER: Many wrinkles does not signify you will look older than your age. Wrinkles may give signs of ageing, but that does not mean pati features mo maa-agnas na rin. Oh yes, Amuro Namie may have “aged” esp. without makeup, but the features! Hindi parin ina-agnas. Lee Young-ae is another example. Kahit may crow’s feet pa siya, hindi parin ina-agnas ang mala-Diyosa niyang danda.

    Many people who naturally looking older than their age will of course envy those who are baby-faced ever since. Well, those people who were not so attractive during their younger years are the ones who look younger than their age as they grow older, not like those who were attractive earlier… yet mature early because yeah, they have this good looks since they’re young. I mean, come on, it really depends on the genetic makeup of your parents, probably one of them or both are really younger-looking, compared to those who have a bad genetic makeup.

    And don’t you know that there are lots of people with good skin texture who age earlier than those who have a bad skin texture? That’s because effort lang sa pagpapaganda ng balat ang hindi pinagpala ng magandang balat. See why Alodia Gosiengfiao is still younger-looking than Ellen Adarna, to think she’s a month older (Ellen BTW, is born on an April, not September, of 1988 while Alodia was born in March 1988). I have noticed that Ellen has aged earlier probably due to smoking. Alodia, meanwhile, does not smoke (I think, ah).

    Yeah! I think the secret to not look older than your age is to AVOID smoking! Smoking will either give you MORE wrinkles or age your looks. I bet, Ellen still has good skin texture, but she aged a lot compared to Alodia, who didn’t age ever since. I really do not know with Saab Magalona since even though she smokes, she still does not age (I bet, she’s not a chain smoker).

    [Oh yes, MSP was complimented for being mistaken as a fifth grader, but she didn’t take it as a compliment at all!]

    But another thing: Being young-looking also equates to being good-looking.

    So, IKAW na talaga kung makinis talaga ang balat mo tapos young-looking ka pa! But that does not mean you’re pretty. What is the use of a baby face and good skin texture if you don’t have sophisticated features, huh!?

    [To be ctd.]

    • Anyways, I just really do not get it why in Filipino society, basta makinis ang balat mo naturally, maganda ka na kaagad. I mean, yeah, you have nice skin but that does not always translate to pretty features.

      LOL! Si Wendicious pa talagay, ah!? Agree ako diyan, kahit ayoko sa image ni Wendy-cious, ahahaha… I could not agree more that she’s better-looking than Mariel and Kitchie, and that’s a fact. Siguro hindi talaga stand-out si Wendy dahil nga sa balat niya! Lol.

      • I could not agree more that she’s better-looking than Mariel and Kitchie, and that’s a fact. Siguro hindi talaga stand-out si Wendy dahil nga sa balat niya! Lol.

        At least si Wendita walang dark eyebags! Pero feeling ko fab naman siya with the dark eyebags since basta dark-skinned, they really look good with big, dark eyebags. Haha. ((:

  3. Ang yabang na gumawa ng mga nonsense na satsat na yan. Hindi naman kagandahan si ellen adarna . Mayaman lang kaya todo retoke sa lahat ng bahagi.
