Weaknesses were overcome, challenges were surpassed, and two teams have remained.
MEGA Magazine has brought out only the best people deserving to be part of the fashion industry. Sixty contenders originally made the cut but only ten survive for the grand finale. With only two episodes left, the battle to reach the top intensifies.
Last week’s episode gave a glimpse of the process to becoming the final two teams of the MEGA Fashion Crew. Everyone saw the difficulties and victory that all the challengers went through. The remaining teams have reached this far. To prove that they’re the best, a tougher round of challenges will be prepared for them.
Will it be the Vanguards or the Fashion Army?
For the first round, four challenges will be given . Each challenge will showcase the skills of each member from the hair stylist, make-up artist, fashion stylist, photographer and model. Teams will put together a photo layout for L’Oreal Paris, a beauty shot for Maybelline, a fashion page for FILA and an ad for ZenZest. Each member will lead the teams through the different challenges, highlighting their niche in the industry.
Special guests will be top model Borgy Manotoc and fashion enthusiast and columnist Tim Yap, who will become part of the challenges in this episode.
The four challenges will test the different strengths of each member. In the first part of the grand finale, everyone will know the reason why the remaining challengers are still in the game. Their edge in the industry will be further revealed; the creative skills of each will be tested.
But in the end, only one team will be crowned MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew.

Hype is building as the remaining teams feel the pressure to prove that they should be MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew. As a final twist last episode, no teams were eliminated during the last challenge. But for this week, good will not be enough.
The teams have made it this far and the judges are expecting only the best among the best.
People always view beauty as seemingly effortless. In reality, it requires a lot of work to create an image worthy of perfection. It also needs quite a great deal of attention to achieve. This week’s challenge will show beauty in different aspects and stretch the contenders’ creative ideas further.
A three pronged challenge awaits contestants as they strive to be the final two.
Contestants will have to show beauty through three different mediums: a print ad; a television commercial; and a fashion show. The teams have already executed fashionable photos and a stylish runway show. But will they be able to pull-off a tv commercial for a product feature?
In just one challenge, teams have to display their strengths in the three challenges to wow the judges. The teams also need to convince judges on a product feature through a tv commercial. Will the challengers survive through three challenges in one episode?
Veteran director Joey Reyes and top creative director Mr. Manuel Villafania share their ideas and expertise as a guest judge for the episode.
The teams must be bold enough for a beautiful triumph. The four remaining teams will have to show only their strongest to make the final cut for the grand finale. Who will be the last two teams vying to be MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew?

After bringing high fashion to the streets of Manila, the remaining Mega Fashion Crew contestants are faced with the hypnotic – and sometimes dangerous – challenge of temptation.
This week, challengers will bring an expression of seduction. Teams will create a stylish look that mirrors the original temptress herself, Eve. Hold on to your senses and be allured with the most exotic episode of this season.
But how do you pull off a high fashion shoot without clothes? Think Eve and what else was with her in the Garden of Eden? This episode proves juicier than the bite on an apple. Sexiness will be brought to life with another round of surprises.
With the tantalizing Ms. Tessa Prieto Valdes as a guest judge, viewers will see her take on this sinfully delightful challenge.
Temptation being personified
Prepping to be Eve
Still, it’s not going to be a paradise of dreams for the teams. Some challengers will be eliminated as we inch closer to the grand finale of the show. With only 20 contenders left, only the strongest can survive the strong seduction of failure.

NEW PRODUCTS ARE PUT TO TEST BACKSTAGE
To create the season’s key beauty trends, makeup artists need the newest and most advanced products on hand – the latest finishes, formulations, shades and beauty innovations are all essential. Fashion shows around the world play a critical role in the M•A•C Product Development process. Artists use this unique opportunity to test-drive M•A•C’s very latest product prototypes, sometimes years before they reach consumers, and put them to the test on the runways of New York, London, Milan, and Paris. If the texture, color, application or finish aren’t up to scratch, artists let M•A•C’s Product Development team know what needs tweaking. The end result: the perfect formula that works equally in the hands of a professional makeup artist and the regular customer.

When I was still on residency training, ebooks were a big help to carry around tons of information in one gadget, the palm top or cell phone. We were training for specialty areas and not growing muscles to be the next Arnold Schwarzeneger, so Instead of carrying the full volumes of the actual books, the ebooks were our security blankets.
The ebooks, however, are not limited to academic resources. Makeup books and style guides can also be downloaded and carried around. The following are just some of the best-selling beauty books you might want to indulge on:
Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. It’s a must-have for beauty addicts containing the tips and techniques for proper makeup application plus thorough step by step directions .
Each chapter has thorough step-by-step basic directions for makeup application and easy-to-follow photographs and line drawings, along with Bobbi’s expert, yet assuring, advice. Plus, there’s a groundbreaking section of the book that will be of special interest to women who’ve wanted to know how makeup stylists do what they do: the top beauty secrets only these artists know, essential equipment to keep on hand, how to break into the business, and how to work with photographers and celebrities.
Clueless about which makeups to buy? “The Beauty Buyble” ebook by Paula Conway is a handy guide to shopping smart in the cosmetics counter.
The Beauty Buyble is a one-stop reference to the year’s best beauty buys and products. It takes out the guesswork, making it easier for you to find the best hair care, makeup, skin care, and beauty tools available on the market. This helpful, accessible book lists products in the low-,middle-, and high-end product range so you can find the product that’s right for you and that will truly enhance your beauty. The clean, concise format helps you find just what you need-and the authors offer advice from celebrity hair stylists, makeup artists, and real women to help you get the best out of your beauty purchases!
Even Eve Pearl’s makeup corrective tips on “Plastic Surgery without the Surgery” is now available on ebook format.
With easy-to-follow, professional secrets and four-color photos throughout, Eve Pearl, the Emmy Award-winning makeup artist from ABC’s The View, teaches readers to lift their eyes, enlarge their breasts, plump their lips, reduce their nose size, and much more. From eyelift to facelift, readers will be amazed at the results-without the pain, the risk, or the cost of surgery!
If you’d rather save the trees and have the ebook version, these are all readily sold online. Plus, if you don’t want to brave the traffic, they could be a perfect Christmas present as well!
