Olivia Quido-Co, a Pinay and a well-known esthetician in the US, was chosen again by the Miss Universe 2021 organization to be its skincare partner.
She is also the founder and CEO of O Skin Med Spa, a facility that provides med spa and cosmetic surgery services to its members.
Ms. O, as she is fondly called by her employees and friends, took time to share what led her to be once again chosen by the Miss Universe organization to be its skincare partner.
The skincare specialist said she felt very lucky to be chosen as Miss Universe 2021. She said it was a dream come true for her.
Quido-Co said the secret is lots of hard work and making sure customers are satisfied with the outcome.
When asked by KAMI as to what this milestone meant to her as a beauty specialist, she said becoming one is a culmination of a dream.
“It means a lot to me because I have always dreamt of O Skin Care reaching global recognition status. In a way, being chosen as a skincare partner for Miss Universe is the culmination of that dream,” Ms. O revealed.
KAMI also asked Quido-Co what she thinks made her one of the most trusted skin care specialists in the world.
“I think one would be the quality of the products that I offer. It's the single most important factor in gaining the consumer's trust. I also believe that brand promise and the ability to deliver are what made O Skin Care a household brand among Beauty Queens,” Ms. O said.
Ms. O was then asked how she would compare Rabiya Mateo to former Miss Universe candidates Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray.
“All three of them have this zeal and sheer determination to win because of their love to their countrymen. They really carry their title as "Miss Philippines Universe" like its their whole identity. They all did everything they could to represent the Philippines well,
As to their differences, Ms. O said it can be observed in their ethnicity. “Pia for example is half German, Catriona is half Australian, and Rabiya is half Indian. You could see some cultural differences that are specific to that,” the skincare specialist said.
The recently held Miss Universe 2020 is the 69th edition of the Miss Universe competition. The global pandemic forced the Miss Universe Organization to cancel the events last year and moved it to May 16, 2021 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, United States. Contestants from 74 countries and territories joined the pageant. The title went to Miss Mexico, Andrea Meza. Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa crowned her successor at the end of the competition. The successful event was hosted by Mario Lopez and Olivia Culpo.
While she was unable to clinch a spot, Rabiya Mateo received a very warm welcome from dozens of Filipinos in a restaurant where she was invited to have lunch in her first public appearance since the Ms. U 2020 pageant night. As the Ilongga beauty queen made her way to the restaurant, throngs of fans waited for her outside and began chanting her name. Visibly overwhelmed by the support, she could only say “maraming salamat po talaga.” Rabiya was an early favorite for the Miss Universe 2020 crown, however, she was not able to clinch a spot in the top ten.
