Dear MEGA, It wasn’t expected of you, but I was particularly pleased and moreso inspired when your June issue came out celebrating pride in different ways. With Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, your story roused my nationalistic pride, one that leaned itself on the values and hard work that our queen put into the pageant, as well as with her reign now. While there are months to come, I personally cannot wait to see what else she will succeed at as the queen we need right now. Meanwhile, having Manila Luzon on your cover revealed to many the wonders of the drag fandom, but it also highlighted the issues and struggles of every queen. Most importantly, we have a member of the LGBTQIA+ community living their truth out loud. Bravo to your title…

in her skin

If you can command a rippling current of water, as well as a backdrop of a wistful sunset, then you must be pretty magical. Granted it was man-made, it doesn’t make the subject any less magical.

Going a little bit scientific about it, we know that skin is the largest organ in our bodies, one that shields us from all external factors that we meet in our daily lives—stress, pollution, sun damage…the list is endless. So, it’s paramount, in this age especially, to take good care of it. With all the diverse choices in the beauty industry today, it is only a matter of preference on what to buy, undergo or swear allegiance to.

We live and breathe in a world where surface is the only thing that matters. A space where most of the time, guards are up, self-esteem is crestfallen and mankind only grows more uncomfortable day by day in the skin they’re in. People tend to forget its power. Their power. The skin is the largest organ in the body, literally existing as a barrier between the heart, the eyes and the mind. This month, we unravel one’s true self beginning with ethereal beauty Erich Gonzales on the cover, swathed in breathtaking, free-flowing silhouettes. In Designer Profile, Puey Quinones talks about reinventing himself whereas newcomer Chris Nick reveals the grit behind all the glamour in New Kids on the Block. In Get Ready to Wear, the color brown remains at the forefront…
