To commence Shopee Beauty Fair event, 2013 Miss World, Megan Young, actress KC Concepcion, and blogger-influencers Martha Jante, Kristine Roces and Helen Payawal - each shared their personal stories on how they overcame society’s beauty standards, and to encourage Filipina women to do the same.
The night was highlighted with three different talk show sessions where the influencers shared personal stories on various topics, including how the media has influenced the standards of beauty, their struggles with overcoming society’s expectations of women, and how they managed to achieve success in both their careers and personal lives.
KC Concepcion shared how health can empower women to be their best self
Megan Young on empowerment and standing up for yourself
“Joining Miss World 5 years ago really took me out of my comfort zone and challenged me to be more confident. After being crowned, I realised I was in a position where I had the power to influence young women, and I wanted to do my part to encourage them to stand up for themselves. I used to just shrug off people who say insensitive or hurtful comments, but now call them out and tell them they’re wrong, and I encourage all women to not be afraid to do the same,” shared Young.

According to Director of Shopee Philippines, Jane Lim, “Shopee’s Beauty Fair is a celebration of women and their success, and we are proud to partner Maybelline and Palmolive for this event - both leading beauty brands who share the same belief that women should be celebrated as they are.
